Thought for the day

"The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin." -- Mark Twain
"When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - When you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - When you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - When you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - You may know that your society is doomed." -- Ayn Rand, 'Atlas Shrugged', 1957

Outgoing Whole Foods CEO John Mackey issued a dire warning about the encroachment of socialism in an interview this week.

What did Mackay say?

Mackey announced last September that he was retiring from managing the supermarket chain that he co-founded more than 40 years ago. But before his departure from Whole Foods at the end of August, Mackey is warning Americans about socialism.

"My concern is that I feel like socialists are taking over," Mackey said on the "Reason" podcast this week.

‘Save America’ Attorney Christina Bobb praised former President Donald Trump’s decision to invoke his Fifth Amendment rights and refuse to answer questions from New York Attorney General Letitia James at a deposition Wednesday.

“It’s a fundamental right that he has as an American citizen,” said Bobb. “It’s one of the reasons we have such an amazing, great nation that he loves so much and fights to serve this country. The Fifth amendment is to protect people against an oppressive government. You don’t have to speak to the government. You don’t have to say anything that could potentially incriminate you.”

Bobb explained that the burden of responsibility in this situation falls on the government.

“It’s the government’s responsibility,” said Bobb. “If they believe you’ve done something wrong and want to take away your liberties by throwing you in jail or doing something to you, it’s their responsibility to figure it out. And you have no obligation to help them.”

James scheduled the deposition to question Trump as part of a three-year civil lawsuit regarding the Trump Organization’s business dealings, specifically whether the business improperly inflated the value of its assets.

Preliminary data obtained by The Center Square from a U.S. Border Patrol agent show apprehensions and gotaways at the southern border total 232,809 in June.

This includes 188,787 encounters/apprehensions and at least 44,022 gotaways.

The preliminary data excludes Office of Field Operations data, meaning the official numbers, once released, will be higher, although U.S. Customs and Border Protection doesn’t make the gotaway data public.

Facing what by all accounts will be a drubbing on election night, Democrats are scrambling to come up with a campaign message voters might actually embrace for the midterm election.

Now they think they might have hit on it. The message will be to portray Republicans as pursuing an “extreme MAGA agenda that costs families,” according to a White House communications memo. 

That’s the talking point President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris intend to use as they travel around the country touting their latest tax hike and climate spending bill, dubbed the “Inflation Reduction Act.”

President Joe Biden and his family arrived in South Carolina on Wednesday for a week-long vacation on Kiawah Island hours after his grandson Beau stole the show upon departure by imitating the president by wearing a matching blue mini-me suit and waving at the crowd.

Biden, attended by first lady Jill Biden, departed the White House by motorcade to Joint Base Andrews outside the capital where they were joined on Air Force One by his son, Hunter Biden, daughter-in-law Melissa Cohen and grandson Beau.

The son of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who quietly accompanied his mother on last week’s controversial trip to Taiwan where she called out China for its threatening moves toward the self-ruled island, holds a stake in a Chinese technology company, according to a report on Thursday.

​​Paul Pelosi Jr., who received 700,000 shares of Borqs Technologies as compensation for his services, became the second-largest investor after CEO Pat Sek Yuen Chan​ ​​when other company insiders sold ​their ​​shares i​n June 2021​​, the Daily Mail reported, citing Security and Exchange Commission filings.

As of March 2022, Pelosi Jr. still owned around 147,000 shares — or about 0.07% of outstanding shares.

An armed man who held a bank hostage for more than six hours in Beirut because he could not withdraw savings has been hailed a hero by the public.

Banks in Lebanon have put tight rules on how much money people can access, amid a deep economic crisis.

The suspect entered the bank with a rifle, poured petrol and demanded his money for hospital bills, AFP reported.

His actions captured public support - with cheering crowds gathering outside and chanting: "You are a hero."

The stand-off eventually ended peacefully with no injuries, after negotiators struck an agreement allowing the suspect to receive $35,000 (£29,000) of his savings upfront, LBC TV channel reported.

China’s government-run Xinhua News Agency announced on Tuesday that the Communist Party would lower gasoline and diesel prices nationwide, a move following growing purchases of cheap Russian petroleum products and of American gasoline leftist President Joe Biden released from the country’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR).

“The prices will go down by 130 yuan (about 19 U.S. dollars) per tonne and 125 yuan per tonne, respectively, according to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC),” Xinhua reported. The communist regime outlet noted that the price drop was the fifth of its kind this year and fourth since June. The government agency announcing the move, Xinhua detailed, acted in response to a drop in international oil prices – partially fueled by a collapse in demand in China, where the Communist Party regularly, and arbitrarily, imposes sweeping Chinese coronavirus lockdowns in major cities without warning.

A special Cabinet meeting began at 11:30 local time. It is expected that soon it will become known about the new composition of the Japanese government under the leadership of Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Pledge Times reported.

The desire to renew the composition of the Japanese government was announced last fall. Then Kishida declared that the country’s leadership needed to “meet face to face with public opinion.” At the same time, the head of Japan’s main opposition force, the Constitutional Democratic Party, Yukio Edano, stressed that “a change in the entire government is needed since the LPD will not change.”

Kishida was confirmed on October 4, 2021, by a majority vote as the Prime Minister of Japan. Now in the lower house of the Japanese Parliament, out of 465 seats, 305 belong to the deputies of the ruling coalition as part of the LDP and its partner, the Komeito party.

Scientists in China have reportedly developed a submarine drone that can also fly at high speeds. The drone has both civilian and military applications, including inspecting underwater mines and weakening enemy warship defense systems.

The South China Morning Post reported Monday that China’s latest drone has four propellers, including two that can tilt. It can slowly approach underwater targets and idle in one area for an extended period, researchers said. 

Professor Ji Wanfeng of the Naval Aviation University in Yantai, Shandong province said the drone can dive underwater when detected by radar and quickly resurface to avoid sonar. The maneuvers could overwhelm a warship’s computer, making the drone a cheap and effective way to cripple aircraft carriers’ defense systems.

Boston Children’s Hospital advertises their surgeries through a video series on their official YouTube channel, with titles like "What You Need To Know Before Phalloplasty Surgery." The 90 videos in the series paint a rosy picture of the genital, chest and face surgeries they offer, followed by upbeat background music.

Chris Elston, otherwise known as "Billboard Chris," shared a tweet on Tuesday of a video in the Children’s Hospital playlist called "What happens during a gender-affirming hysterectomy?"

In that video, Dr. Frances Grimstad outlines the process of getting a "gender affirming hysterectomy."

It is "very similar to most hysterectomies that occur. Hysterectomy itself is the removal of the uterus, cervix, which is the opening of the uterus, and the the fallopian tubes which are attached to the sides of the uterus," Grimstad says

with a smile. Grimstad says that some "gender affirming hysterectomies will also include the removal of the ovaries," in short, the entire female reproductive system.

In an opinion piece written for the New York Post by author James Bovard, he stressed several other former presidents that have taken years, if not decades, to produce records and tapes covered under the Presidential Records Act.

The Presidential Records Act, which states that "The United States shall reserve and retain complete ownership, possession, and control of Presidential records," has come into the attention after FBI agents raided former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence under the option that he has held onto documents covered under this act.

According to Bovard, the Nixon Library did not reportedly publish its final set of the former President’s secret tapes until 2013, 39 years after his presidency ended in his resignation following the Watergate scandal.

On July 24, licensed sex therapist Miranda Galbreath posted a video titled "Let's talk about minor-attracted persons." In the video, Galbreath cites pedophiles as "minor attracted people," stating that the term "pedophile" is a "judgemental, hurtful insult."

According to her, these pedophiles are "the most vilified population of folks" who suffer from the disparaging assumptions of the wider population.

In the video, Galbreath likened attraction to children to other sexualities stating that "[Minor-attracted person] simply means that the person has an enduring sexual or romantic attraction to minors. They have not chosen this attraction… you don't get to choose to be heterosexual or gay, and you don’t get to choose to be a minor-attracted person."

Webmaster addition: People don't get to choose to be homicidal maniacs, but we still lock them up to protect others.

Yuval Noah Harari, historian, futurist, and World Economic Forum (WEF) adviser, said, “We just don’t need the vast majority of the population” in the early 21st century given modern technologies’ rendering human labor economically and militarily “redundant.”

Harari’s remarks were made in an interview with Chris Anderson, the head of TED, published on Tuesday. He assessed widespread contemporary disillusionment among “common people” as being rooted in a fear of being “left behind” in a future run by “smart people.” Such fears are justified, he added, given his projection that emerging technologies will displace economic needs to many categories of existing work:

Biden-appointed Attorney General Merrick Garland on Thursday admitted he "personally approved the decision to seek a search warrant" to raid former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago home before playing the victim and whining about being "unfairly attacked."

FBI Director Chris Wray also came out and played the victim on Wednesday by whining about alleged "threats" to the FBI.

These criminals are sending FBI informants to spy on our president in his own home and raiding him over supposed violations of the Presidential Records Act but they want us to cry for them because some random plebs on the internet got angry over their abuse of power.

For all we know, the alleged "threats" the AP claimed they faced on Gab were from FBI agents themselves who are constantly provocatuering powerless plebs on the platform to talk violently so they can arrest and entrap them.

These criminals will be throwing our president in prison and jailing his family on trumped-up charges while complaining about how the most powerful regime commissars in America are the real victims!

Canadian pro-freedom organization Police on Guard for Thee released a series of videos with whistleblowers from the Canadian healthcare field that have laid bare their frustrations and concerns with the continuing COVID saga.

So far, the organization has released four full-length interviews. One of the interviews is with a veteran doctor, one with a nurse supervisor with extensive experience in a nursing home, and the two others are with paramedics.

For professional reasons, the nurse and doctor had their faces blurred and their voices distorted to remain anonymous. Their testimonies about the extensive damage they have seen with patients who have taken the vaccines are concerning, to say the least. They both say that not only have they seen severe reactions in a number of patients who were recently jabbed, but that in some cases they have been told not to express their concern and that professional standards have been thrown out the window.

On August 9, the newest interview was released with the nurse supervisor who expressed her dismay about the extent of post-vaccine reactions that she has witnessed.

Hillary Clinton is using the FBI’s raid on President Trump’s Florida home as a fundraising opportunity by trolling Trump and his supporters with the sale of merchandise emblazoned with “BUT HER EMAILS,” a phrase meant to mock all who believe the former presidential candidate had engaged in criminal activity by deleting tens of thousands of her emails and destroying the servers which housed them in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election.  

Following the FBI’s Monday night raid of President Trump’s Mar-A-Lago resort home, Clinton tweeted a link to “Onward Together,” a site which sells an array of Clinton-promoting goods by pandering to liberals, focusing particularly on pro-abortion and LGBT constituents.  

“Every ‘But her emails’ hat or shirt sold helps Onward Together partners defend democracy, build a progressive bench, and fight for our values,” wrote Clinton on Twitter Tuesday morning.  “Just saying!”

After an interview highlighting the toxicity of experimental COVID-19 gene-based vaccines, Dr. Jeff Matheson had his medical license suspended for nine months by Ontario’s medical regulator for providing information “inconsistent with public health and College directives.”

Matheson, who has been practicing emergency medicine across Canada and internationally for many years, was featured on a short video with independent journalist Maryann Gebauer on July 22 when he addressed the sudden deaths of multiple physicians in his home nation.

He mentioned knowing one of them, Dr. Paul Hannam, who was “a very fit former Olympic athlete” who died at age 50 while out for a “normal jog” on July 16.

Three other physicians who worked for Trillium Health Partners also died on July 17, 18, and 21, directly after another rollout of experimental COVID doses, with a young 27-year-old female triathlete doctor dying on July 31.

Perhaps in light of such deaths, and his fellow physicians in Toronto beginning to notice a significant problem with “a lot of younger, seriously injured people coming into the emergency rooms,” Matheson believes his colleagues will not submit to any more booster shots.

Asked to identify the most common injuries he has seen in Ontario, the physician specified “neurological injuries,” and added they had been seeing many strokes and blood-clotting disorders as well.

On 1 September, 1941, Chief of Reich Security Reinhard Heydrich, one of the most fanatical, mass-murdering Nazis, issued a now notorious decree ordering Jews above the age of six to wear an identifying badge in public.

The Jewish Badge, a yellow Star of David with the word “Jew” inscribed inside the star, was meant to stigmatize and humiliate the Jews and was also used to segregate them and monitor and control their movements.

Nothing like that is happening currently, especially not in New Normal Germany.

What is happening currently in New Normal Germany is the fascist fanatics in control of the government are rewriting the “Infection Protection Act,” again — as they have been doing repeatedly for the last two years — in order to allow themselves to continue to violate the German constitution (the “Grundgesetz) and rule the nation by arbitrary decree under the guise of “protecting the public health.”

This repeatedly revised “Infection Protection Act” — which has granted the government of New Normal Germany the authority to order lockdowns, curfews, the outlawing of protests against the New Normal, the mandatory wearing of medical-looking masks, the segregation and persecution of “the Unvaccinated,” etc. — is of course in no way remotely comparable to the “Enabling Act of 1933,” which granted the government of Nazi Germany the authority to issue whatever decrees it wanted under the guise of “remedying the distress of the people.”

Almost a quarter of a million Germans will fall into unemployment next year as Russia’s war in Ukraine deals a shattering blow to Europe’s largest economy.

The German economy will be 1.7pc smaller next year than it would have been without the invasion, according to analysts at the Institute for Employment Research, and will only gradually return close to its pre-war trajectory by the end of the decade.

By 2030 Germany will have lost €260bn (£220bn) of economic output compared to if the war had not happened. The drag comes as war in Ukraine and sanctions on Russia push up energy, food and commodities prices and disrupt international trade.
