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:
JONATHAN EMORD’S ANNOUNCEMENT OF HIS CANDIDACY FOR U.S. SENATE Veteran constitutional and administrative attorney Jonathan Emord announced today he has entered the race for U.S. Senate in 2024. Here are his remarks at the start of his senatorial campaign: Today, I am announcing my candidacy for the United States Senate. Everywhere in the Commonwealth, we see an outpouring of support for major change, for a restoration of freedom and progress. Virginians blame this President and his leaders in Congress, including Senator Tim Kaine, for skyrocketing inflation, high gas prices, the crime epidemic, schools that indoctrinate and transition rather than educate, the illegal alien invasion through our unguarded Southern border, fentanyl across the border killing 2,000 Virginians last year, and a woke transformation of the military that is sacrificing readiness and troop strength. Those misguided policies have cost American lives, impoverished Virginians, robbed seniors of retirement, and ruined generations of youth. They must not only be stopped. They must be reversed. Biden and Kaine are deaf to the pleas of hard-working Americans, but I hear them. Our agenda is the opposite of the Biden/Kaine agenda. Ours is dedicated to freedom and progress. There is no limit to what Americans can achieve, so long as they are free. It’s time to liberate free enterprise and eliminate government overreach. It’s time to end the mandates and restore schools to the status of wholesome and safe environments for the education of our children. It’s time to interdict the cartels and secure our borders. It’s time to build an American future where children are confident that they will succeed regardless of race, where opportunity abounds, and where the world yet again understands that freedom and prosperity are synonymous with the words United States of America.
The Kaining of America According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, the verb “cane” means “to beat or flog with a walking stick.” May I offer a homophone (words that have the same pronunciation but different meanings, origins, or spellings)? Consider another verb, “kaine.” “Kaine” is to impoverish, endanger, or enslave. Joe Biden might say, “I kained my country by enabling Hunter to access classified documents left in my garage.” Hillary Clinton might say, “I kained my country by allowing donors to the Clinton Foundation to have special access to me while I served as Secretary of State.” George Soros might say, “I kained the United States by giving huge campaign donations to anti-incarceration prosecutors who then destroyed the criminal justice system and made violent crime commonplace.” These are all proper uses of the new verb “kaine.” What is the verb’s derivation? Kaine is derived from Tim Kaine, Virginia’s junior U.S. Senator since 2013, the protégé, friend, dutiful servant, and funding recipient variously of Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and George Soros. His actions in the Senate fall into the three categories attributed to this verb (impoverish, endanger, or enslave).
More Cite Gov’t as Top U.S. Problem; Inflation Ranks Second More Americans name the government as the nation’s top problem in Gallup’s latest poll, which encompassed the rocky start of the 118th Congress’ term. With high prices persisting, inflation remains the second most-cited problem (15%), and amid elevated tensions about the southern U.S. border, illegal immigration edged up three percentage points to 11%. Mentions of the economy in general fell six points, to 10%, the lowest reading in a year. The poll’s Jan. 2-22 field period included the four-day, 15-vote process in which Republicans, who now hold a slim majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, ultimately elected Kevin McCarthy to be Speaker of the House. Revelations about classified government documents from 2009 to 2017 found in President Joe Biden’s private office and home also surfaced while the poll was in the field. Although mentions of the government as the nation’s top problem rose six points this month to 21%, job approval ratings of Biden (41%) and Congress (21%) remained flat. The government ranks as the top problem for both Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (24%) and Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents (18%). Inflation and immigration are each cited by 18% of Republicans, while mentions of inflation (11%), the economy in general and race relations (9% each) trail the government among Democrats. Democrats are more likely than Republicans to view unifying the country and the environment as top problems.
Americans Still Glum About State of the Union in Most Areas Americans’ assessment of the state of the nation remains in the pandemic-era slump seen since 2021, marked by subdued satisfaction with 30 different aspects of the country. These include the public’s reaction to several aspects of U.S. society generally, as well as to numerous specific issues facing the country. These findings from Gallup’s Jan. 2-22 Mood of the Nation poll come as only 23% of Americans are broadly satisfied with the way things are going in the country, while the rest are dissatisfied, including nearly half “very dissatisfied.” The overall quality of life in the country (65%) and the opportunity for a person to get ahead by working hard (61%) are the only two societal dimensions of eight measured in this year’s Mood of the Nation poll that a majority of Americans view positively. Even these satisfaction ratings, however, are well below the record highs of 89% for the quality of life in 2001-2002 and 77% for opportunity in 2002. Close to half of Americans today are satisfied with the influence of organized religion, while satisfaction drops to a third for the size and power of the federal government as well as the U.S. system of government and how it works. Americans are least satisfied with the nation’s moral and ethical climate (20%), the way income and wealth are distributed (24%), and the size and influence of major corporations (27%).
Poll Shows Near-Even Split on Congress Providing More Aid to Ukraine A poll published Tuesday showed a near-even split in the United States on providing more aid to Ukraine in its war with Russia. The poll, conducted by Hart Research Associates/Public Opinion Strategies Study from January 20-24 and published by NBC News, shows that 49% surveyed said Congress should provide more funding and weapons to Ukraine, while 47% said it should not. The margin of error was approximately 3%. Congress has committed more than $113 billion in aid to Ukraine since Russia invaded the country in February 2022. The poll also showed that more people disapproved of President Joe Biden’s handling of the war between Russia and Ukraine than approved. The poll showed that 50% disapproved of his handling, and 41% approved. Four percent had no opinion and 5% said they were not sure. The poll was conducted as the Biden administration was deliberating sending Abrams M1A2 tanks to Ukraine, something it had held out on for months over concern the tanks would be escalatory and too difficult for Ukrainian forces to operate and maintain. Biden announced Wednesday, January 25, that he decided to purchase 31 tanks for Ukraine, which will likely take months, if not more than a year to arrive. He framed the decision as part of helping Ukraine defend itself against Russia and not a “threat” to Russia.
House Passes Bills Ending COVID-19 Emergency, Health Care Worker Vaccine Mandate With Republicans back in the majority, the U.S. House of Representatives on Jan. 31 passed a series of bills related to the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccines. The GOP majority in the lower chamber took up two COVID-19 bills on Tuesday, with many others still on the docket for possible consideration later this year. The first bill would officially declare an end to the public health emergency of the COVID-19 pandemic. The second bill would end the vaccine mandate for health care workers at institutions that receive federal funding. During the 117th Congress, the Democrat majority in both chambers largely marched in lockstep with President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 policies, including vaccine mandates. Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) said the two bills being considered will “restore our constitutional rights and freedoms after two long years of Democrats COVID-19 power grab policies.” In many places, Americans found themselves effectively barred from leaving their homes amid mandatory lockdowns, which in turn caused substantial mental health and socialization issues among young adults and children. Republicans, on the other hand, have pointed to the low risk the virus poses to younger people and those without pre-existing health conditions. Many Republicans opposed vaccine mandates as a violation of Americans’ rights to choose which drugs they put into their bodies.
‘Pregnancy Is Not a Disease’: Pro-Life Groups Blast Biden Admin for Considering Abortion Public Health Emergency Declaration Pro-life groups blasted the Biden administration for falsely treating pregnancy like a disease after Axios broke the news on Tuesday that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is weighing the possibility of declaring a public health emergency over abortion. “Biden’s abortion obsessed administration wants to basically declare Martial Law to take control of our society with the same health care regulations used to control Americans during the height of the COVID crisis. This is an abuse of a process that was created to SAVE lives, not end them,” President of Students for Life Action Kristan Hawkins said in a statement to Breitbart News. “Even so, we saw how the regulations were abused, and used against Americans, when it really was a health issue being debated. But pregnancy is not a disease and it’s [sic] fake cure is not abortion,” Hawkins continued. “The best healthcare in the world should be used to see both mother and child safely cared for and loved. Violating people’s rights of conscience to push abortion in all 50 states using the thuggish tactics of Biden weaponized HHS and DOJ will be opposed with all our resources. We are already taking steps to address this.” Axios’ Oriana Gonzalez spoke with HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra, who told the outlet during “reproductive health access” events on Monday that “[t]here are discussions on a wide range of measures … that we can take to try to protect people’s rights.”
5 Covid Mistakes Biden’s New Chief of Staff Must Admit Every day I am subjected to a new record in absurdity which is then soon followed by one far surpassing the previous. Check out the latest: Biden’s previous Covid Czar was promoted to the position of Biden’s new Chief of Staff. Wait, what? One of the leaders of what is one of the demonstrably worst national public health responses to Covid in the world. A guy responsible for policies that caused hundreds of thousands of needless deaths due to the suppression of early treatment while forcing and promoting toxic, ineffective, and lethal vaccines at the expense of people’s livelihoods and education. And he gets a promotion. What will tomorrow bring? Will it be Alfred Bourla, the CEO of Pfizer, getting nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine? Aye aye aye. Well, at least there are some somewhat good news of late to offset this idiocy. The Biden administration has announced it will finally end the Covid-19 public health emergency—in May! The order been renewed every 90 days since January 2020, even as the disease waned and life in most places returned to normal. But the Federal government needs more time to unwind the mess it created. And so for another four months, it will be business as usual for pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, pharmacies, and everyone else gaming the health system to keep the emergency funds rolling in.
Special Guest Melanie Marden
After losing her Mom to brain cancer in 2008, Melanie set out on a global quest to find the truth about cancer therapies and cures. What she found changed her life forever. She decided to make a documentary titled “Cure This” that would lead her to the knowledge that cancer had been cured.

The book is appropriately titled “Save Your Life.”After many successful years acting in Hollywood, she decided to make her exit and dedicate her life to healing both herself and helping others do the same. Marden has acquired a vast knowledge of cancer, vitamins, minerals, energy medicine, nature healing, parasites, breathe work, the body systems, ionic radiation, how to detox and immune boosting protocols.
Question of The Day!
At 18 I got colitis. Was put on every drug (5ASA, prednisone, humira, imuran, entyvio, stelera etc), nothing worked. Last year I had 3 surgeries to get a jpouch (removed my colon). Tried a bunch of things and worked with many functional medicine doctors without luck. I recently tried working with a new doctor and he believes I have hydrogen sulfide sibo. I came across your aloe vera + silver protocol. Do you think this is something that can help and do you have any other advice? Thank you so much. I will buy your book. I suffer from a whole host of symptoms (fatigue, depression, food sensitives etc). I eat clean and have done a lot of research and attempt to healing naturally on my own, but never gotten better..Very tough to find good doctors here in scandinavia.
Forget Pandemic Puppies. Meet the Inflation Chicken Which shortage came first: the chicks or the eggs? Spooked by a huge spike in egg prices, some consumers are taking steps to secure their own future supply. Demand for chicks that will grow into egg-laying chickens — which jumped at the onset of the global pandemic in 2020 — is rapid again as the 2023 selling season starts, leaving hatcheries scrambling to keep up. “Everybody wants the heavy layers,” said Ginger Stevenson, director of marketing at Murray McMurray Hatchery in Iowa. Her company has been running short on some breeds of especially prolific egg producers, partly as families try to hedge their bets against skyrocketing prices and constrained egg availability. “When we sell out, it’s not like: Well, we can make another chicken,” she said. McMurray’s experience is not unique. Hatcheries from around the country are reporting that demand is surprisingly robust this year. Many attribute the spike to high grocery prices, and particularly to rapid inflation for eggs, which in December cost 59.9 percent more than a year earlier. “We’re already sold out on a lot of breeds — most breeds — until the summer,” said Meghan Howard, who runs sales and marketing for Meyer Hatchery in northeast Ohio. “It’s those egg prices. People are really concerned about food security.”
