Malone: "Another consequence, that is very typical for totalitarian states, is that people become radically intolerant for dissonant voices. Because if someone tells another story, if someone claims that the official story is wrong, then this person threatens to wake the people up and they will get angry because they’re confronted with the initial anxiety and the initial psychological discontent. So they direct all that aggression at these dissonant voices, at the other voices. And at the same time, they are radically tolerant for their leaders, for the people who pronounce the mainstream narrative. These people can actually cheat and lie and manipulate and do everything they want, but they will always be forgiven by the crowd because the crowd seems to think that they do it for their own sake."
"In March 2020, a profile of the typical Covid victim emerged from Italy. The average decedent was eighty years old, with approximately three comorbidities such as heart disease, obesity or diabetes. The young had little to worry about; the survival rate for the vast majority of the population was well over 99 percent. That portrait never significantly changed. The early assessments of Covid out of Italy have remained valid through today. And so it will prove with the Omicron variant."
The major reason we moved to Ohio is to be closer to the kids and grandkids, who are in Central OH, Pittsburg, and the metro Detroit area. It's a much easier trip than going to Greensboro. Most of the people here seem to have much more sense than the virtue-signaling citizens who dominate Greensboro and Guilford County agendas.
I'm glad we've escaped all this nonsense by moving to Ohio.
Tim Dukeman: "The definitive account of what happened yesterday at #SBC21. A snippet: 'In the last few years, though, influences from within and without have begun to weaken the SBC’s resolve to conform to Scripture rather than public opinion. Rogue churches began hiring female preachers. Individual SBC professors and leaders promoted conferences that introduced compromising language on LGBT ethics. And the 2019 Resolutions Committee transformed a local pastor’s anti-CRT proposal into a declaration that explicitly endorses it as a “useful analytical tool” for understanding “systemic” racism That’s to say nothing of the former head of the SBC lobbying arm routinely politicizing the organization by excoriating Trump voters before leaving last month in a storm of leaks and intrigue that would make the writers of “House of Cards” blush.”
From Tim Dukeman's Facebook page: Rod D. Martin: "Elsewhere somebody said the SBC is over, we’ll never have 15,000 messengers again, blah blah gloom doom. Let me tell you something. The Conservative Baptist Network is only gaining momentum. If we’d flipped 350 votes out of 15,000 we’d have won. That’s starting from zero a year ago in a pandemic against the entire denominational machinery. Don’t tell me 'there won’t be 15,000 again'. It’s normally 8,000, and 15,000 is the highest turnout since 1995. Everybody said that would never happen. Don’t pretend anybody here said it would. But I said it would. And it did. And we nearly won. In our first year. Next year we’ll win. You’ll predict we won’t. And then we will. And all the naysayers will start telling me how they knew it all along, and were with us all along. Because that’s how this always works. First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. They told us PayPal was a pipe dream too. Oh how they laughed. Who’s laughing now?"
"The nomination is more often a reflection of the person favored by the establishment serving the donor class, and funneling their contributions." Hence the explanation for the existence of Thom Tillis as NC's junior senator.....

I think it's interesting that Mark Walker got a plurality of the GOP convention-goers' votes for the senate seat.

All the research and documentation on this issue won't make a difference. Based on the history of this abominable scam, it's extremely likely that all the evidence will be ignored, and all this effort will been have in vain. This entire scam was put in motion as soon as it was clear that Trump would be elected in the 2016 election. Justice will never be served in regard to the largest election fraud/scam in our nation's history.
" expect Tillis will probably vote to override Trump's veto of the NDAA defense bill. Trump had vetoed it because it calls for the renaming of military bases, and does not contain the removal of liability protection for big tech companies." Well golly gee whiz! Surprise, supersize, surprise!
"As we see in the survey data above though, mask adoption is now widespread. It simply isn’t the silver bullet we were promised. Masks do appear to offer some benefit in reducing transmission under specific circumstances. For example, a comprehensive focused protection strategy would likely advise mask use in the presence of vulnerable populations and in certain indoor public settings, or even subsidize the provision of N-95 masks to senior citizens and other high-risk persons. But the American population has already widely adopted masks to the tune of 80% usage for the last three months, with no signs of dissipating. Insofar as these practices help, they are likely to reduce exposure in the presence of vulnerable persons in certain settings. That much should be acknowledged and encouraged as part of a new focused protection strategy. Yet as we are now seeing in Europe and parts of the United States though, the fall 2020 case surge came many months after the widespread adoption of masks in these regions. Masks are not the next big policy step to take, but rather one that most of the afflicted regions have already taken. They simply weren’t the universal panacea that our media and parts of the epidemiology profession promised."

Andrew Brod: Best described as "always arrogant, the owner of an over-blown unmerited ego (which allows him the privilege of never being wrong particularly when he is), but never, EVER in doubt....." He's a product of the non-existent moral high ground always claimed by the smug Left.
I cannot wear any sort of face mask for very long. As indicated in one of the studies discussed in the video, these things reduce the normal intake of oxygen to the system. In my case, I get headaches, aggravation of my tinnitus, and become light-headed after 15 minutes of wearing one of these things.. As a guy dealing with heart issues, and being at risk for (another) stroke, I certainly don't need to hear the pious sanctimony from the Karens of this world in regard to face masks.

"But is the electronic linkage always unidirectional? Is it merely from the federal government to the state, and then to providers?" More likely, it will increasingly move to drug manufacturers, and those who make durable medical equipment, magnifying a problem that has existed for quite some time now. What else would explain the reason why I get mail and email from drug manufacturers, or pop up ads on internet pages touting their medication, which (amazingly enough) treat my medical conditions?
"But it is difficult to see how going into Iran at this point would yield a much better outcome than in Iraq." I don't recall expressing supporting for an invasion. There are numerous ways to skin that cat without resorting to an invasion.

Joe, for the last FORTY PLUS years, Iran has been waging war against the United States of America. Are we to just throw up our hands, and say"we quit"? Consider this: "Watching the various reactions to the killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, I have been struck by how historically ignorant most politicians and commentators are – and how our political-diplomatic language and mindset block us from reality......" Read the rest. Gingrich nails it.

Last question: What other option did the United States have to respond to the attack? Send Barack Obama and Jimmy Carter to Iran as emissaries of peace?

Here's several questions that need to be considered, and ultimately answered: 1. Who benefited from the Iranian-driven attack on the US Embassy? 2. What are the short term and the end strategies of those who supported the attack? 3. Why did the attack take place NOW?

Here's the point that the media, the Left, and far too many Americans cannot (or do not) understand: In addition to its own agenda, Iran is acting as proxy for at least one (and very like numerous) nations other than their own. This most recent provocation by the Iranian organized smokescreen of Iraqis "protesting" at the US embassy was simply part of the overall plan toward the goal of completely eliminating American influence in the Middle East. The list of examples that establish that to be true is fairly long. In addition, it's helpful to review the disaster inflicted upon us by the many destructive acts that the Obama regime inflicted upon us.

Here's all you need to know about this McGregor in regard to US foreign policy: He is an acolyte of Wesley Clark, which means he has a political axe to grind. He has little to no credibility among people in the national security business. He's appeared on Tucker Carlson's show several times. Carlson isn't stupid, but he should know better than to give this guy any airtime.

"Green's article and the Voter ID editorial that followed in Triad City Beat blatantly contradicted each other. One falsely cries out for democracy, while the other deliberately undermines it." Green would likely make some sort of response that there's no contradiction. Feckless writers for goofball small change Leftist weekly propaganda tabloids and their feeble-minded audience are known for inventing all sorts of excuses regarding their irrational academic and intellectual worldview agendas.
