"The very word 'secrecy' is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it." -- John F. Kennedy

The New York Times and Washington Post both published opinion pieces Wednesday branding 80-year-old President Joe Biden as too old to run for re-election in 2024. 

It comes as Biden faces an impeachment inquiry and recent polling numbers show most consider the president at too advanced an age to serve again.

Ross Douthat, a conservative op-ed writer for the liberal Times, penned a piece titled '2024's Field of Nightmares,' a reference to the 1989 film Field of Dreams.

He said while his concerns with Biden come down to run-of-the-mill political disagreements during his first term, Democrats are playing with fire in allowing the oldest president in American history to run again.

The two risks of Biden running again, according to Douthat: 'The high stakes of the next election, in which a health crisis or just more slippage might be the thing that puts Trump back in the White House, and the different but also substantial stakes of another four-year term.'

Webmaster addition: If the corporate media is turning against Biden, it means the decision has been made not to run him in 2024. Biden is unelectable. Stealing the election for him would be so obvious it risks a bloody civil war (and nobody wants that). They are focusing on his age rather than his corruption because opening up the Burisma can of worms could unravel a massive corruption network entangling a large percentage of politicians, which could bring down the government and end the party for everyone. So the media is doing a dancing act, ejecting Biden without admitting to the corruption. This is not unlike Richard Nixon, who resigned rather than face impeachment, because a full investigation would have exposed government links back to the JFK assassination. So Nixon forced Spiro Agnew out as VP and installed Gerald R. Ford, who had served on the Warren Commission and would keep the dark secret after he became President.

An article written by Molly Carter, initially published on ammo.com at an unknown date1 and subsequently republished by The Libertarian Institute in May 2019,2 and psychreg.org in late January 2021,3 noted:

“According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), a mass murder occurs when at least four people are murdered, not including the shooter ... during a single incident ...
Seemingly every time a mass shooting occurs ... the anti-gun media and politicians have a knee-jerk response — they blame the tragedy solely on the tool used, namely firearms, and focus all of their proposed ‘solutions’ on more laws, ignoring that the murderer already broke numerous laws when they committed their atrocity.
Facts matter when addressing such an emotionally charged topic, and more gun control legislation has shown that law-abiding Americans who own guns are NOT the problem. Consider the following: The more gun control laws that are passed, the more mass murders have occurred.
Whether or not this is correlation or causation is debatable. What is not debatable is that this sick phenomenon of mass murderers targeting ‘gun-free zones,’ where they know civilian carry isn’t available to law-abiding Americans, is happening.

According to the Crime Prevention Research Center,4 97.8 percent of public shootings occur in ‘gun-free zones’ – and ‘gun-free zones’ are the epitome of the core philosophical tenet of gun control, that laws are all the defense one needs against violence ...

This debate leads them away from the elephant in the room and one of the real issues behind mass shootings — mental health and prescription drugs.

Washington State has been trying to deal with their homeless problem, but they haven’t had much success.

A program designed to close down tent communities and get homeless people into housing has already spent $143 million dollars to house less than a thousand people. That’s a horrible ratio.

And now they want more cash, because they think this program has been so effective.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is known for scoring major wins for his state. Even during the dark days of COVID, he saw the Sunshine State thrive, as other states crumpled. A mass exodus of Americans moved from many blue states to Florida in the ensuing years. That has led to a boom in building and commerce, as Americans resettle in the state.

It appears DeSantis continues to make efforts to improve Florida. While other states defund police departments, DeSantis gave police pay bonuses for relocating there. Now, it appears the governor is on a warpath to send a message to “defund” states. Because he just targeted a major blue state with billboards.

From Fox News:

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ office is launching billboards in Illinois to encourage law enforcement officers in the state to “make the smart move” to Florida after Illinois approved allowing noncitizens to become officers and is eliminating cash bail…

The billboards tout a $5,000 signing bonus for out-of-state police officers who relocate to the Sunshine State as part of its law enforcement recruitment bonus payment program signed into law by the Republican governor in 2022.

This week, House Republicans announced an impeachment inquiry against Joe Biden. House Speaker McCarthy had vowed to open a probe, should the evidence warrant it. The Republican listed six major allegations that triggered the investigation, which could led to the impeachment of the Democrat.

The mainstream media has tried to dismiss or downplay the news. Democrats have seemingly tried to distract from Biden’s scandals, by indicting Donald Trump, his chief political rival. Reporters pegged White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the bombshell news. This is how she responded.

From The Post Millennial:

During a press conference on Wednesday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre walked out as a reporter pressed her for answers on why Biden interacted with Hunter Biden’s business associates.

“Can you explain why the president interacted with so many of his son’s foreign business associates? More than half of voters told CNN they believe the president was involved and he lied. You can’t have a response to that, Karine?” a reporter shouted as Jean-Pierre packed up her belongings and left.

Democrat socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has long claimed to be a champion of ethics and transparency. She has frequently complained about “dark money” in politics and has even pushed for term limits for members of Congress. But despite these stances, the New Yorker has been accused of a variety of ethics violations herself.

AOC has been challenged by the House Ethics Committee over questionable uses of campaign money. In the past, she has faced scrutiny over receiving gifts from the Met, after her infamous “Tax the Rich” red carpet appearance. But it looks like she is facing even more ethics violations. This time, it could involve prosecution.

From Breitbart:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) — known as AOC — is under scrutiny for describing her fiancé, Riley Roberts, as her “spouse” in forms filed with the House Ethics Committee in 2023, despite not being married to him…

The snafu is drawing attention, since Ocasio-Cortez has positioned herself as a champion of ethics in Congress, and willful misrepresentations on disclosure forms could subject her to criminal prosecution, the WFB noted.

It appears AOC is facing problems due to disclosure forms she filled out for the House Ethics Committee. In February she traveled to Japan and South Korea, on a trip funded by the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Foundation. In August, she traveled to South America on a trip paid for by George Soros’s Foundation to Promote Open Society and the Center for Economic and Policy Research.

The Democrat-run state of California has frequently run afoul of federal courts in recent years. The heavily left-leaning legislature has pushed many progressive laws and rules, prompting backlash from conservative residents and other groups. One particularly controversial move has been the possibility of race reparations, which could spark a long-term legal battle.

Recently, the state passed a law that could potentially impact businesses and private citizens. Critics of the law have questioned its constitutionality, which has led to a lawsuit. The case was taken to the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, a notoriously liberal court that historically sided with Democrats. But, thanks to former President Trump’s diligent work reforming the courts, California experienced a rude wake-up call.

From The Post Millennial:

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday that California’s minor firearm advertising law likely violates the US Constitution, saying “The First Amendment demands more than good intentions and wishful thinking to warrant the government’s muzzling of speech.” […]

Judge Lee, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, concluded that the state of California “cannot ban truthful ads about lawful firearm use among adults and minors unless it can show that such an intrusion into the First Amendment will significantly further the state’s interest in curtailing unlawful and violent use of firearms by minors.”

World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Secretary-General Petteri Taalas said on Thursday that the horrifying casualties from the catastrophic flooding in Libya could have been mitigated with a decent early warning system — something beyond the capabilities of a country shattered by former U.S. President Barack Obama’s 2011 invasion.

“If they would have been a normally operating meteorological service, they could have issued warnings. The emergency management authorities would have been able to carry out evacuation of the people. And we could have avoided most of the human casualties,” Taalas said at a press conference in Geneva.

Taalas said the WMO had been attempting to assist Libyan authorities in repairing their weather forecasting system for quite some time, but the effort was stymied by the abysmal “security situation” in the warlord- and terrorist-infested country.

Elon Musk, one of several tech tycoons who met lawmakers in Washington D.C. this week to discuss the burgeoning technology of AI, warned that intelligent machines have the potential to threaten all of human civilization.

The SpaceX and Tesla CEO joined Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Sundar Pichai, Satya Nadella, Sam Altman and other leaders of the tech industry for a first-of-its-kind, private summit with Senators in D.C this week. The topic at hand: AI, and what to do about it.

“The consequences of AI going wrong are severe so we have to be proactive rather than reactive,” Musk told a press gaggle after attending what he called a “historic” meeting.

“The question is really one of civilizational risk. It’s not like … one group of humans versus another. It’s like, hey, this is something that’s potentially risky for all humans everywhere,” said Musk.

“There is some chance that is above zero that AI will kill us all. I think it’s low. But if there’s some chance, I think we should also consider the fragility of human civilization.”

A New York Times opinion writer is calling out liberals, whom he says ignore one specific factor contributing to child poverty.

“American liberals have led the campaign to reduce child poverty since Franklin Roosevelt, and it’s a proud legacy. But we have long had a blind spot,” Nicholas Kristof wrote in his article, published on Wednesday.

He continued:

We are often reluctant to acknowledge one of the significant drivers of child poverty — the widespread breakdown of family — for fear that to do so would be patronizing or racist. It’s an issue largely for working-class whites, Blacks and Hispanics, albeit most prevalent among African Americans. But just as you can’t have a serious conversation about poverty without discussing race, you also can’t engage unless you consider single-parent households.

Kristof gave one example, stating families led by single mothers are five times as likely to find themselves in a life of poverty when compared to families headed by a married couple.

In June 2022, the Republican Study Committee (RSC) shared a framework for what it hoped would be a red wave in the U.S. House of Representatives in November of that year, Breitbart News reported at the time.

The plan centered around strategies to “restore the American family.”

Members of Generation Z — those between the ages of 12 and 26 — in the United States “generally lack trust in political and societal institutions,” a new study from Gallup and the Walton Family Foundation found. 

Among the institutions in the survey, Gen Z expressed the lowest level of trust in Congress, the news, the presidency, and large technology companies. Only one in six or fewer reported having “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of trust in each. 

Likewise, fewer than one in four in this age group trust the U.S. Supreme Court, the criminal justice system, and the information they find on the internet. “Science” received the highest trust rating at 71 percent. 

Opinions differ greatly among older Gen Z members, ages 18 to 26, depending on political affiliation. Republicans (71 percent) are much more likely than Democrats (12 percent) to have a great deal or quite a lot of trust in the police. Republicans are also much more likely to have greater trust in the military than Democrats are (62 percent to 14 percent).

In contrast, Democrats are more likely to trust science (92 percent) than Republicans are (50 percent).

Even so, young Republicans and Democrats are “more politically aligned” in their distrust of Congress, the information they find online, and large tech companies, according to the poll.

Household budgets were hit by rising grocery prices for the second consecutive month in August, data from the Department of Labor showed Wednesday.

The consumer price index for “food at home” rose 0.2 percent in August after climbing 0.3 percent in July. In June, grocery prices were more or less flat with the prior month.

Food prices have been on an almost relentless rise since Biden took office, with food inflation becoming a constant feature of the American economy after nearly a decade of m mostly stable prices.  Prices for groceries have been up on a monthly basis in all but three months of Biden’s presidency.

The cumulative effect has been devastating for the budgets of many households. Since February 2021, food-at-home prices are up 19.6 percent.

Do you remember all the Democrats shrieking about kids in cages during the 2020 election? It was repeated by Biden, his supporters and people in media over and over again. A constant drum beat.

Here’s the harsh truth. They don’t care. They didn’t care then and they don’t care now.

It was nothing more than a line of attack against Trump. How do we know this? Simple. There are people being held in cages at the border right now under Biden and none of the Democrats are saying anything about it.

A bombshell report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has revealed that a staggering 120,000 American children “died suddenly” following the rollout of the mRNA Covid jabs.

The disturbing news has been greeted with silence by the mainstream media, who apparently do not consider the deaths of more than one hundred thousand American children to be of any consequence.

All through 2021, Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration and then-chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci continued to insist that the Covid jabs were “safe and effective” for all ages, and necessary for protecting kids from the virus, despite children only showing mild symptoms if any at all.


On December 11, 2020, the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine was granted emergency use authorization (EUA) for administration in individuals 16 years of age and older by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

On May 10, 2021, the FDA expanded the EUA for the use of the shots to include adolescents 12 through 15 years of age.

On June 17, 2022, the FDA authorized emergency use of the mRNA Covid vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech to include use in children down to 6 months of age.

Just over a year on, the report – which was quietly released by CDC and subsequently suppressed by the mainstream media – revealed that nearly half a million children and young adults have now died since the injections were approved for use on most children.

In one his few public appearances since resigning in disgrace, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday night bashed the federal and state government’s response to New York City’s migrant crisis — and warned the issue is “going to hurt” Democrats politically.

Cuomo — who left office in August 2021 amid sexual misconduct accusations that he denies — received a warm welcome from a packed house at the Thomas Jefferson Democratic Club in Brooklyn, where he gave a nearly one-hour speech that centered on the government’s handling of immigration.

“This was a federal responsibility, period. First and foremost. Not the state, not the city. Immigration law is a federal responsibility,” Cuomo said.

The ex-governor said if he was in office, he’d march down to Washington and demand President Biden “take hold of this.”

Democratic Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis indicted President Donald Trump and 18 of his associates with frivolous charges in order to prevent the popular conservative and leading presidential candidate from running for reelection in 2024.

Willis and the Biden DOJ hope these charges stall President Trump from running and helps damage his name.

This is straight up election interference. Consider the irony, This D.A. is seeking to interfere with the 2024 elections by prosecuting those who sought to protect the 2020 elections.

Georgia Governor Kemp and the Georgia Legislature each have the power to act and they must do so now! We cannot have rogue Marxist prosecutors using frivolous lawsuits to alter our elections. A special session must be called and the Georgia Legislature must investigate this abuse of the criminal justice system.

So far, Republican leaders in Georgia have shied away from a special session of Congress to investigate these political prosecutions by Fani Willis.

Now, a group of conservative leaders is calling on Governor Kemp and the Georgia legislature to act.

Fifty U.S. lawmakers have reintroduced the CBDC Anti-Surveillance State Act to prohibit the Federal Reserve from issuing a retail Central Bank Digital Currency while protecting innovation and any future development of true digital cash. This is in direct opposition to the Globalists and the WEF agenda that seeks to enslave and remove all personal freedoms and privacy with CCP-style credit scores and surveillance.

U.S. Congressman Tom Emmer (R-MN) who has been a longtime advocate that any Fed-issued digital dollar (central bank digital currency) remain open, permissionless, and private announced on Tuesday that he and 49 other lawmakers have reintroduced the CBDC Anti-Surveillance State Act “to halt the efforts of unelected bureaucrats in Washington D.C. from issuing a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) that dismantles Americans’ right to financial privacy.”

Evidence of the corruption of the once sacrosanct scientific process grows daily with scientific bodies falling victim to wokeness, unscientific findings and pseudo-scientific romantic mythology. The latest report on the future of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) by the Australian Academy of Science (AAS) is another sad reflection of this depressing trend. According to long-time Reef expert Dr. Peter Ridd, the report demonstrates that the AAS, Australia’s principal science body, is not just unscientific, but anti-science. Writing recently in Spectator Australia, he also noted it had become “astonishingly woke”. The AAS observed that the Reef could already be “irreversibly damaged”. This propagandised opinion flies in the face of the fact that coral on the Reef is at a 37-year record high, despite a challenging past decade of cyclones, natural localised warming spikes and starfish attacks. Coral is now double that recorded in 2012.
