GOP Aligned Group Spotlights ‘Skyrocketing Inflation’ To Target Potentially Vulnerable Senate Democrats

EXCLUSIVE: A three-month-old conservative advocacy organization that’s quickly become one of the biggest spending outside groups is going up with a new digital and radio blitz targeting four Democratic senators.

“Skyrocketing inflation. Empty shelves. Surging gas prices. Tell Sen. Cortez Masto now is not the time to raise taxes,” reads one of the digital ads by Common Sense Leadership Fund (CSLF), which is running in Nevada, where Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto could face a challenging reelection next year.

The ads, which were shared first with Fox News on Tuesday, are also running on Facebook, Google and YouTube/Hulu in Arizona and New Hampshire, where Democratic Sens. Mark Kelly and Maggie Hassan also face potentially difficult reelections.

Rising Prices Scare Czechs More Than COVID-19 Pandemic

Czechs are beginning to fear rising prices and are also concerned about high energy prices, according to data from the Czech Statistical Office, according to which increasing numbers of coronavirus cases are another reason of concern. However, coronavirus is no longer the biggest fear as people are starting to worry about their financial future in light of inflation.

In addition to consumers, for the fourth month in a row, confidence in the economy is also decreasing among entrepreneurs. The reason is the chip shortage, which caused the suspension of production in the Škoda automobile producer.

A “War Warning” From Michael Yon

Michael Yon is one of the relatively few journalists I respect highly. He’s “walked the walk”, not just “talked the talk”, in an independent career that’s shown neither fear nor favor in his pursuit of the truth about people and situations. He became a legend in the military community for his reporting from Iraq and Afghanistan in the early 2000’s. He’s made his share of mistakes, IMHO, but he’s also gone after stories the hard way, exposing himself to danger in the process (unlike many so-called “journalists” who merely listen to others who’ve “been up the sharp end” and report what they hear, but never go there themselves).

Biden Admin Appoints School Boards Association President 2 Days After Signing ‘Domestic Terrorism’ Letter

President Joe Biden’s Education Department appointed National School Boards Association (NSBA) president Viola Garcia to a federal board overseeing student progress two days after Garcia signed a letter asking the Biden administration to target parents as “domestic terrorists.”

Viola Garcia was appointed to the National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) earlier this month by Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona. The NAGB has oversight over the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), which “is the largest continuing and nationally representative assessment of what our nation’s students know and can do in subjects such as mathematics, reading, science, and writing.”

California and Florida Introduce Two More Genetic Privacy Laws Into the Mix

Florida and California join a growing minority of states enacting laws protecting a person’s genetic information (Nevada and Alaska also have laws). Florida’s new genetic privacy law, known as Protecting DNA Privacy Act, went into effect on October 1, 2021. California’s governor recently signed the Genetic Information Privacy Act (GIPA) into law on October 6, 2021. It will go into effect on January 1, 2022.

Florida and California take different approaches to their genetic privacy laws. Violations of Protecting DNA Privacy Act are subject to criminal penalties while violations of GIPA are subject to civil penalties. We outline some of the highlights of each below.

Carts and Horses, 2021 Edition

There is no arguing with a man who has decided that what he wants above all other things is power over you. You cannot reason with him. You cannot reform him. You cannot keep him from pursuing what he wants. Indeed, there is only one long-lasting countermeasure: you must kill him. As most of us in the Right are moderately reluctant to kill others, including the deepest-dyed of black-hearted villains, he has an edge over us that’s most difficult to overcome.

I would surmise that a great part of the interest being expressed in partitioning the nation into separate “red” and “blue” sovereignties arises from the unexpressed awareness that we cannot triumph over the Left without “going for the guns.” If you know that the price of victory is mass executions, but are unwilling to kill, what remains but flight? Yet even flight would provide only a temporary respite, for they who want power want it over everyone and everything. They would pursue us. Ultimately, we would have to fight them to the death.

I purely hate having to say such a thing. I’m more confrontation-averse than anyone else I know. But I can’t avert my mind from the facts and logic that have brought me here.

Chicago Police Officers Opposed to City Worker Vaccine Mandate Gather at CPD HQ

CHICAGO (WLS) — The battle over vaccine mandates played out in federal court in Chicago Tuesday afternoon with a group of city workers suing both Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker.

A federal judge said late Tuesday that he will rule on Friday on a city worker lawsuit asking for a temporary restraining order to put the vaccine requirements on hold. That case involved 130 employees, mostly firefighters.

Earlier, their police counterparts — who are fighting a separate battle in Cook County Court — staged another demonstration at police headquarters. The protest came one day after a rally outside City Hall led by Chicago FOP president John Catanzara Jr.

Critical Race Theory is a ‘Frame’ For ‘Our Work, ‘ Fairfax County Public Schools Told Teachers

A slide presentation this summer instructed social studies teachers in Fairfax County Public Schools that “critical race theory is a frame” for their work, even though officials in Virginia’s largest school system say the pedagogy is not a part of the curriculum.

The slide presentation, titled “Renew, Reflect, Re-imagine: Enacting a Critical Lens for Student Empowerment,” was presented via Zoom in August during an in-service day for K-12 social studies teachers in Fairfax County. The presentation is available on YouTube, and The Washington Times has received a digital copy of it.

Dewey, Cheat’em and Howe

If you mandate, as a private employer, “vaccination” against Covid-19 any and all adverse events as a result of said jabs are now chargeable to you, as the Federal Government itself has deemed that “mandated” vaccinations are indeed injuries that occurred while performing the job in question, irrespective of where the jab took place, and that said adverse events, up to and including death do in fact occur.

Got that employers and HR Departments? Said “adverse events” are expected.

Oh by the way your insurance firm has likely inserted a “pandemic exemption” into your liability coverage. That’s shown up in a whole lot of those policies over the last year or so, and it’s odds-on that’s the case for you as well.

Last week the NIH admitted that EcoHealth violated the terms of a grant by failing to report their achievement (which EcoHealth denies), sending both Fauci and Collins into full damage control over the weekend.

Rogan Set to Take on Fauci Over Puppy Torture, Sparking New Clash With Mainstream Media

Podcast giant Joe Rogan is set to take Dr. Anthony Fauci to task over his link to disgusting NIH-funded experiments performed on beagle puppies that were locked in cages and infected with with disease-causing parasites.

An investigation by the White Coat Waste Project found that Fauci’s division of the National Institutes of Health “shipped part of a $375,800 grant to a lab in Tunisia to drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sand flies so that the insects could eat them alive.”

“They also locked beagles alone in cages in the desert overnight for nine consecutive nights to use them as bait to attract infectious sand flies,” the group asserts.

According to the report, the dogs even had their vocal chords severed so they wouldn’t annoy the researchers and couldn’t cry out in pain by barking.

Over the weekend, Rogan tweeted out a link to an article explaining how legislators are demanding a response from Fauci on the “cruel” experiments.

Roy Exum: Critical Race Theory Thrives at Blue Cross

Eight states — including Tennessee — have banned the controversial Critical Race Theory from being taught in schools and another 20 states have legislation in the works to do the same thing. But at Chattanooga-based Blue Cross-Blue Shield of Tennessee, the openly racist program is allegedly being “force fed” to its 6,700 employees. According to a number of sources, the vastly unpopular “theory” is being foisted on the BCBST workforce and is believed to be grossly inappropriate in a state so diametrically opposed to it.

It is believed a large number of employees have already been subjected to the controversial but compulsory program.

This news comes just days after the mammoth health-care provider began firing employers who refused to take the coronavirus vaccine based on religious or personal grounds.

It also forbids use of The New York Times’ 1619 Project in schools. It’s a project that details the consequences of slavery in America and the contributions of Black Americans.

In a statement, Jim Walsh (R-Aberdeen) and Jesse Young (R-Gig Harbor) urged “This mandate from L&I demonstrates a complete lack of transparency, which dilutes public trust in our government and fails to show the agency’s good faith in promulgating the rule. The reality is this move by L&I is a blank check for the agency to enforce any of the Governor’s mandates or edicts on private employers.”

But now, as YouTube has announced that it will be testing allowing paying users the ability to download videos, it too is cracking down on the tools that allow users to download video.

Eric Zemmour: Poland Must Oppose Threats and Blackmail From Brussels.

In an interview for portal DoRzeczy, French writer, pundit, and unofficial candidate in the 2022 French presidential elections Éric Zemmour commented on the recent Polish Constitutional Tribunal ruling and Poland’s ongoing conflict with the EU.

Zemmour recently declared that he completely supports the Polish nation and government in “executing legal order” when it comes to the tribunal’s verdict. He went on to add that it was also time to restore the primacy of state law in France over EU law.

He emphasized that Brussels was no longer even concealing its threats towards Poland and other countries whose government that eurocrats did not like.

[Comment: Zemmour is the real deal. I don’t worry about the French patriot vote being split in the French election, for there is a second round. At least one French patriot will face Macron in the second round.]

French Conservatives Tighten Ties With Hungary

Last month, Marion Maréchal, director general of the ISSEP French political school, and the publicist and writer Éric Zemmour, the as of yet unofficial presidential candidate, arrived in Budapest for the Demographic Summit, which is designed to address the troubling demographic situation facing Europe.

If you want to be a French president — especially after the country has not had a right-wing leader for two election cycles — it is worth coming to Budapest for some good advice. Le Pen and Zemmour are both popular, and it remains to be seen which of them will eventually be the most likely candidate, but one thing is certain: if they want to win, they have to talk about what people are interested in.

Orban Draws Battle Lines Against Brussels, Big Tech, And Big Money on Anniversary of Anti-Communist Uprising

Viktor Orban drew battle lines against the Hungarian left, their international backers in the European Union and foreign press, and Big Tech in a passionate, wide-ranging speech commemorating the 1956 uprising against the country’s then-communist puppet government.

“There are moments in the lives of nations when suddenly everyone feels ‘Enough is enough, things can’t go on like this any longer.’ We have to decide, and our decision shows who we really are,” the Hungarian leader said of the Cold War-era rebellion, which saw perhaps 3,000 rebels killed and over 700 fatalities inflicted on the Soviet Communist forces in the country.

Re-Imposing COVID Restrictions Would Cost UK Up to £18 Billion

Boris Johnson has been warned that any move to re-impose COVID restrictions would last until at least March 2022 and would cost the economy up to £18 billion pounds.

Public health technocrats, leftists and the media have been fearmongeirng about rising case numbers over the last week in an effort to pressure the government into putting measures, including mask mandates and ‘work from home’ orders, back into place.

This despite the fact that around half of the recorded cases are as a result of children returning to school and being mass tested.

Skepticism Towards the EU is Growing in France

The European Union is shaken by the dispute over Polish judicial reform. Amid this heated debate, it is being omitted that significant distrust towards Brussels is growing elsewhere, for example, in France.

This is evident both from the statements of leading French politicians and from the opinions of the public. Eurosceptics can also lean on the pandemic, as well as the current energy crisis, in which the cumbersome EU seems to be unsure what to do.

According to the poll, 81 per cent support mandatory masks on public transport, while 76 per cent support the same rule in shops. 67 per cent want mandatory social distancing in pubs and restaurants.

Singapore Uses “Fake News” Law to Target Vaccine Skeptic Website

Singapore has used the relatively new “fake news” law to punish a website that spreads “false” information about COVID-19 vaccines. Rights groups have previously warned that the broad scope of the law could be used to stifle free speech in a country where the media is already highly regulated.

Singapore-based outlet Truth Warriors publishes negative stories about COVID-19 vaccines. The health ministry found it to be in violation of the “fake news” law, aka the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act, and ordered it to include a disclaimer that it has “false statement of fact” at the top of all its pages.

German Police Guard Polish Border Over Migrant Influx From Belarus

Hundreds of police officers are guarding the German-Poland border because of an influx of migrants arriving from Belarus, according to Germany’s interior minister.

“I am convinced, in the spirit of the European idea, that we must know who is coming to us. It is legitimate that we protect the external border in such a way that undetected border crossings are prevented,” he added in an interview published in Bild am Sonntag.

Over 2 Million Illegal Aliens Have Crossed Border in Last Year

The last 12 months saw a record total of over 2 million illegal aliens come across the southern border, Breitbart reports.

The total amount of illegals for Fiscal Year 2021 consists of about 1.66 million who were successfully apprehended by Border Patrol before ultimately being released, and around 400,000 “gotaways,” who managed to evade authorities and sneak into the country undetected.

This represents a 315 percent increase from Fiscal Year 2020, which saw only about 400,000 illegals apprehended by Border Patrol. In addition, the rate of apprehension for alleged family units of illegals skyrocketed by over 763 percent, while the rate of unaccompanied minors being apprehended rose by 374 percent, and single adult apprehensions increased by 235 percent.

Governor Abbot Signs Law Protecting Girls’ Sports in Texas

On Monday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed House Bill 25 into law, which separates school sports teams by a student biological gender.

HB 25 requires that students play on sports teams determined by the gender listed on their birth certificate. According to the Texas Tribune, the law will go into effect on January 18.

The new law also goes a step further than rules set forth by the University Interscholastic League, which is the organization that governs Texas school sports. Current UIL rules say that students must perform on teams that align with the gender on their birth certificate, but they accept modified birth certificates.

Another battle rages between the country’s conservative politicians and liberal parties over a new proposal that would set stricter controls over abortions, but would also offer greater protection to pregnant women, particularly against domestic violence.

The UK’s Trans Pay-to-Play Scheme

Last week, the BBC demonstrated why it is probably the best public media in the world and why it is so incredibly frustrating. Journalist Stephen Nolan has published a ten-part podcast on the LGBTQ charity Stonewall’s influence on the BBC. Nolan works for the Northern Irish branch of the BBC, known as BBC Ulster. However, much of the podcast focuses on Stonewall’s sway over the media giant. Nolan effectively conducted an investigative report against his own employer.

Although the BBC throws obstacles Nolan’s way and the journalist mentions how the BBC refuses to answer his questions and publish documents, at the same time, the BBC does not threaten to not broadcast the program.

However, the main scandal is Stonewall’s activities. This non-profit was established in 1989 to fight for the rights of homosexuals. Among its founders was, for example, actor Ian McKellen, known as Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings. It achieved practically all of its goals in 2013 when the British Parliament approved gay marriage. At that moment, however, Stonewall’s activity changed considerably. The emphasis shifted from the letters LGB to T, and the organization is now fighting mainly for transgender rights.

The way they do so is close to corruption. Every year, Stonewall publishes a list of the most LGBT-friendly companies. It is relatively prestigious in the UK to land on the list, and progressive companies are trying to their best to land a spot. At the same time, however, Stonewall provides training, called Diversity Champions, in which it advises companies on how to behave better towards LGBT. As Nolan explained, Stonewall rates the company for its LGBT friendliness. If the company wants to be higher next year, the best thing it can do is pay for a course at Stonewall, where it will learn how to be LGBT-friendly.

  1. “Rising Prices Scare Czechs More Than COVID-19 Pandemic”

    yeah well we could really feel the 2008/09 crisis, when Euro and Dollar went down, and our “National Bank” run by the globalists made the Czech Crown go down with them, “because that’s good for all the German owned factories, like Skoda”

    By the looks of it, the crisis that is coming will be worse, and my friends and I have started to buy silver and gold, because that is more reliable than euros or crowns today 😉

    • 1 kg silver bars and buy gold from those who seek it in the ground. They don’t want to sell to the official stores and you don’t want to be on record buying it.

      • in the worst case scenario, I can always pan for gold myself, in the streams running downhill around here. that is also why my primary holdings of wealth are in the “tools”, it’s good to have tools for everything, and know how to use them. maybe someone will pay me with a gold Dollar when it becomes useful. So I bought some silver coins to give back change 🙂

        1kg silver bars are beyond my means, but I like the 2021 American Eagle.

  2. Women’s shelter in Sweden demands to remove decorative panel on school wall because it is “sexist”

    The guy looks confident, but the girl, on the contrary, is defenseless.
    https://www.friatider.se/kvinnojour-kraver-ta-bort-rent-sexistiskt-konstverk-fran-skola

    Once upon a time there lived such an alchemist, Agrippa, who claimed that a woman was a product of a higher level, because she was made not of coarse clay, but of a rib. Therefore, a woman is much more delicate. And now they are demanding that she move the cupboards and sit in the trenches.

    • Kvinnojour kräver: Ta bort “rent sexistiskt” konstverk från skola

      well, it is a picture of a sexy boy and a sexy girl so some might think the picture is kind of sexy(st), and innapropriate for school environment. But I don’t know why you think that the girl looks defenceless? She could be considered dangerous jailbait by some dirty minds.

  3. Elena, you are quite correct. I agree with you. It has been a crime that women have been removed from their rightful places – the kitchen and the bedroom.

  4. And what’s wrong with the bedroom if the marriage is by mutual consent?
    The bedroom is one of the few pleasant places in this Matrix.
    And the kitchen …. Now you can hardly cook at all or make a minimum of effort. I could have done that, but I am very picky about food, so I have to do everything myself (although I don’t really like it) .

    Sometimes cooking something is much easier than working in a production facility and supporting yourself and your children.

    I am quite lazy, and therefore I do not understand the feminists who hang this yoke on themselves.

    There are certain areas of life where women can and cannot work.

    If, for example, you shove an Israeli woman into a trench, nothing will happen with her in a southern climate. If a woman is thrust into a trench in Northern Europe, cystitis and infertility are guaranteed.
