Poll: Americans cite the government as the country’s biggest problem

In Jan 2023 Gallup Poll, Americans were asked to rank the greatest problems facing America. At the top of the list was government with 21 percent stating it was the country’s biggest concern. In a similar poll held in Nov/Dec 2022, only 15% believed that the government was America’s biggest headache. Inflation came in second at 15% in the January poll. This was followed by immigration at 11%, the economy at 10% and unifying the country at 6%. It could be argued that the government is largely responsible for all the top five concerns facing America.

Communist China spy balloon(s) discovered flying over sensitive military sites in the US and Canada

Communist China spy balloons have been reported over both the US and Canada, the Daily Mail reports. The US and Canadian military are tracking ‘high-altitude surveillance’ balloons. In the US, the balloon, which is the size of three buses, may have flown over highly sensitive nuclear missile sites in Montana. The balloon entered US airspace two days ago and Americans are asking the obvious question, why has US President Joe Biden not ordered it shot down yet? Some have speculated that there may be only one balloon that has been moving over the airspace of both countries. The Chinese Communist Party has, of course, denied all allegations stating that it follows all international laws.

Study: Antarctica and the Arctic have not warmed in 70 years despite increasing CO2 emissions

Climate Alarmists have been warning for years that because of man-made global warming, the Antarctica ice caps were going to melt and basically wash away our coastal cities. In August 2021, the left-wing website, Salon, posted an article entitled, “This is what New York City will look like after climate change” to stoke those fears of what will happen if we don’t quit driving SUVs. It wrote that “Scalding temperatures, rising sea levels and changing weather will fundamentally remake the Big Apple.” But there is a problem with this hyper-fear mongering because it seems that despite record amounts of CO2 still being poured into the earth’s atmosphere, the Arctic and Antarctica have not gotten warmer over the past seventy years. The Daily Skeptic provides more details: “A recent paper from two climate scientists (Singh and Polvani) accepts that Antarctica has not warmed in the last seven decades, despite an increase in the atmospheric greenhouse gases. It is noted that the two polar regions present a “conundrum” for understanding present day climate change, as recent warming differs …

Why is the Communist China interested in buying up American farmland?

In an article for Fox News, Jeremy Hunt writes that over the past ten years, the value of land owned by corporations with ties to Communist China has increased from an estimated value of $80 million in 2010 to $1.8 billion in 2020. Hunt, who works as a media fellow at Hudson Institute, then explains why the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is so interested in buying up farmland in America: Home to 20 percent of the global population, but only 7 to 9 percent of the world’s arable land, China is an extreme food shortage. To combat the crisis, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) devised a decades-long strategy of purchasing millions of acres of American farmland, livestock, seeds and food supply lines from the United States. Hunt adds that members of congress will soon be introducing a bill, the PASS Act, that would prevent Russia, China, North Korea and Iran from purchasing American farmland. The Act would also prevent the purchase of Agricultural related businesses. For a list of some Agricultural related industries that Communist …

Pro-life protestor found not guilty by a jury of his peers

A pro-life dad who was arrested at gunpoint by the FBI has been found not guilty by a jury of his peers, The Blaze reports. The Federal Justice Department had charged Mark Houck, 48, under the FACE act with trying to “injure, intimidate and interfere” with an individual who was working for a Planned Parenthood clinic. The Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act makes it illegal to interfere, intimidate or injure anyone seeking an abortion. The charge arose after Houck pushed a 72-year-old man who was volunteering to escort people into the Planned Parenthood Elizabeth Blackwell Health Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in October 2021. Houck admitted shoving the man, but said it had nothing to do with the man’s volunteer work with the clinic, but because the man had been harassing Houck’s 12-year-old son. If found guilty under the FACE Act, Houck faced a potential 11-year sentence and a $350,000 fine. Many believe the case was brought forth by the Federal Justice Department simply to intimidate pro-lifers and other people of faith. Houck …

Statue described by some as satanic pays homage to abortion on top of New York courthouse

A new horned female statue, called Now, with tentacles for arms, has been temporarily set up on the roof of a New York state courthouse in New York City alongside the statues of historical figures. Across the street, a sister 18′ statue entitled Witness has been set up in Madison Square Park. The statues are the work of a Pakistani-American artist, Shahzia Sikander and will remain on the site until June when they will be transferred to a location in Houston, Texas. The Blaze described the statue appearing on the roof of New York State’s Supreme Court alongside ancient historical lawgivers, such as Moses, as: “An eight-foot sculpture of a horned female fused to a lotus flower with what appear to be tentacles has been erected above a state courthouse in New York City. The statue joins nine others portraying historical lawgivers, each representing the world’s purportedly great legal systems.” Sikander added that her inspiration was her opposition to the recent overturning of Roe vs Wade, by the US Supreme Court. She dedicated the eight-foot …

World’s most crime-ridden McDonald’s in Ottawa, Canada to close

We have been hearing stories about how businesses are closing in California and other US states because of rampant crime due to Democrat prosecutors-easy-on crime policies, well the trend is happening in Canada, Fox News reports. Apparently, a McDonald’s restaurant in Canada’s capital city, Ottawa, has decided to close down due to rampant crime. It has been dubbed the world’s most crime-ridden McDonald’s. As Charles Bordeleau, Ottawa’s former chief of police explained in his letter to the McDonald’s CEO in 2019: “Officers attend this location on a daily basis to address issues including vagrancy, liquor license violations, illicit drug use, and incidents of violence.” Fox News added that in 2017, police responded to 900 calls from that particular McDonald’s location and along with 843 in 2018. In 2019, the location called police over seven times a day during a two-day stretch in April. And more recently, customers are reporting finding hypodermic needles on the floor of the restaurant.

A woman that Newsom depicted in an ad as being sad over Roe vs Wade ruling was actually jubilant because she is pro-life

When California Governor Gavin Newsom decided to run a pro-abortion ad, he used an image of a woman crying outside the US Supreme Court to depict the sadness and panic women were feeling because of the overturning of Roe vs Wade, The Blaze reports. However, maybe he should have checked with the woman first before including her image because her name was Macy Petty, a Lee University student and pro-life activist. In response, Petty tweeted “Panic? Sad? Try ecstatic, blown away by God’s grace on this country” and posted her response to both the Governor’s official and personal Twitter accounts. On her Instagram account, Petty went further and accused Newsom of trying to put his words in her mouth: “California governor Gavin Newsom has used my image in one of his political ads in yet another attempt to show his support for women. He and pro abortion Democrats have one again shown Americans that they care little for my voice as a woman.” She also asked Newsom to take down the ad or remove her …

It costs more to charge an EV, than fill a gas-powered vehicle in Britain

People promoting electric vehicles told us that they were cheaper to operate than gas powered vehicles. Well, that green dream may soon be coming to an end. A British study says it is now cheaper to fill up a gas-powered car in England than an electric one as the price of electricity in that country has soared, The Telegraph reports. According to a report by AA, electric vehicles cost more per mile to operate than gas-powered vehicle, a difference of 16.18 pence per mile for an EV compared to 14.45 pence per mile for gas. This is the equivalent of £10 more per fill. And with the British government considering a ban on the sale of petrol vehicles over the next few years, the demand for and cost of electricity will only continue to rise.

WEF speaker told not to use the words God, religion or faith in his talk about ‘keeping the faith’

At the recent World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting held in Davos, Switzerland, the organization actually held a session on ‘keeping the faith’. However, there was one major caveat, the speaker, Farhan Latif, was told not to mention ‘God’, ‘faith’ or ‘religion’ during his speech, LifeSite News reports. “Before I jump in, I want to offer a trigger warning for the audience. As I was preparing for this session … they told me, ‘Don’t use the words religion, faith, and God,’ and so I just ask people to translate that to ‘mindfulness,’ ‘purpose-driven,’ ‘spirituality,’” said Latif who serves as president of the El-Hibri Foundation. It was probably a joke and though Latif’s comments were met with laughter from the crowd, some wonder if it represents a deeper sentiment about removing God from any discussions about the future of the world. As Emily Manigiarcina explains in her article for LifeSite, God is a threat to WEF’s globalist agenda writing: In fact, God and authentic religion are a threat to the WEF’s agenda, not only because they …

US Energy Department report highlights huge cost of ending Keystone pipeline

One of the first things that President Joe Biden did when he took office in 2021 was to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline. According to a report by the US government’s Energy Department, that decision came at a great economic cost, Breitbart reports. The report entitled, Keystone XL Extension Permit Revocation: Energy Costs and Job Impacts, was released in December 2021. It stated that the decision cost between 16,149 to 59,468 jobs in the short term. The Keystone pipeline was expected to ship 830,000 barrels of Canadian crude oil to the US, and create 42,000 long-term jobs amounting to $2 billion in total wages. This was all squashed when President Biden recklessly revoked the permits of the project that was already halfway done, resulting in the stakeholders terminating the project.

Nancy Pelosi had Roman Catholic priests perform an exorcism at her home, daughter states

According to the daughter of former House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, her mother had Roman Catholic priests come into her home and perform an exorcism after Pelosi’s husband was seriously injured in an attack at their home on Oct 28, 2022, The Blaze reports. Nancy’s daughter, Alexandra Pelosi, made the admission in a recent interview with the New York Times, stating that the attack deeply impacted her mother. “I think that weighed really heavy on her soul. I think she felt really guilty. I think that really broke her,” Alexandra said in the interview. Nancy’s husband was severely injured in the attack after being hit with a hammer by an intruder in their home while police were standing only a few feet away. Roman Catholic exorcisms include blessings, prayers, and invocations found in an 84-page manual entitled Of Exorcisms and Certain Supplications. This can include such invocations as: Depart, then, transgressor. Depart, seducer, full of lies and cunning, foe of virtue, persecutor of the innocent. Give place, abominable creature, give way, you monster, give way to …

Elon Musk calls WEF, an ‘unelected world government’

If you are unaware, the World Economic Forum (WEF) is on the last day of its annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Many believe the organization funded and founded by Klaus Schwab is pushing for world domination. Elon Musk, Twitter’s new owner, recently condemned the WEF calling it an ‘unelected world government,” Fox News reports. “WEF is increasingly becoming an unelected world government that the people never asked for and don’t want,” Musk tweeted. The WEF’s annual meeting, held this year from January 16 to 20, attracts elites from areas of academia, politics, and business, and its founder Klaus Schwab has described the recent COVID pandemic as an opportunity for a great reset, and to make the world in Schwab’s image. That includes a program called Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG), and Musk later tweeted the S actually stands for Satanic.

Former drug addict states San Francisco’s syringe exchange program keeps people in bondage

A former drug addict recently stated that San Francisco’s syringe exchange program is doing nothing more than keeping addicts “in a state of bondage,” Fox News report. The city’s woke council has provided 20 locations across the city that distribute syringes, pipes and tinfoil to help users maintain their addiction. The program also provides naloxone, which helps reverse overdoses. The city’s goal is to provide a warm, safe place, without judgement, where people can safely continue living their life of addiction. Fox News interviewed, Ricci Wynne, a former addict and drug dealer, who broke free of his addiction and now promotes drug abstinence. “They should restart rethinking their policies here because this harm reduction site, it just doesn’t work,” Wynne said. “They need abstinence-based treatment, they need to get clean, they need help to get back on the road to recovery.” READ: San Francisco addicts are kept ‘in a state of bondage’ by syringe exchange programs, former drug user says

British satirist critiques woke culture and the climate cult

With the climate cult claiming governments must limit how much CO2 an individual person can emit annually, it was interesting to watch British comedian, Konstantin Kisin, critique woke culture and the climate fanaticism dominating society, the Daily Wire reports. Kisin, starts off his presentation to the Oxford Union, which has been viewed over 5.6 million times, with this indictment of wokeness: “I want to talk to those of you who are woke, and who are open to rational argument. A small minority, I accept, because one of the tenets of wokeness is of course that your feelings matter more than the truth.” And he continues by adding that since Britain only emits 2% of the world’s CO2, it doesn’t matter what their country does, it will change nothing. If you believe CO2 is destroying the world, the changes need to happen in Asia and Latin America from people who are just trying to survive and couldn’t care less about climate change. He finished off by saying: “The only thing that wokeness has to offer … …

Are offshore wind farms impacting whale populations?

There have been calls for a moratorium on further offshore windmill developments after a seventh dead whale in just over a month washed ashore near such a project off the coast of New Jersey, the Western Journal reports. The latest death involved a humpback whale that washed up on a Brigantine beach on Jan 12, 2023, just six days after a similar incident a few miles down the shore at Atlantic City. At this point, the cause of these deaths is unknown. Calling it alarming, Cindy Zipf, the director of Clean Ocean Action, said she had never seen six dead whales washing ashore in just 33 days. Many are calling for a moratorium on further offshore wind development until studies have determined if they are having a negative impact on whale populations.

Some bizarre laws from around the world

The Daily Mail recently had an article on some bizarre laws being enforced around the world. Here are a few of them: CAN’T FLUSH A TOILET AFTER 10 PM: Apparently, it’s illegal to flush a toilet in an apartment building in Switzerland after 10 pm, because it is considered noise pollution. Some landlords even impose restrictions on no flushing between 10 pm and 7 am. MUST WALK DOG: If you own a dog in Turin, Italy, you must walk them at least three times a day, according to a law passed by the city council. DON’T SHARE ALCOHOLIC DRINKS WITH MOOSE: In Fairbanks, Alaska it is illegal to feed alcohol to Moose. Apparently, a moose, who was later named Buzzwinkle, went on a rampage in 2007 after getting into some alcohol at a local brewer. DON’T RIDE COWS WHILE INTOXICATED: Based on legislation passed in 1872, it’s still illegal for an intoxicated person to ride a cow in Scotland. DON’T BUILD SAND CASTLES: It has been illegal since 2016, for anyone to build sandcastles on …

American Heart Association Journal: Study suggests mRNA vaccine ‘may contribute to Myocarditis’

The American Heart Association Journal recently published a study that suggests mRNA-vaccines may be contributing to heart issues among certain young adults and teens, CBN reports. The Journal cited 16 cases between January 2021-February 2022, where young adults and adolescents experienced Myocarditis after receiving a COVID vaccine. A rare condition, Myocarditis involves a weakening of the heart muscles that can result in chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue and swelling of the lower limbs. The study is uncertain why the mRNA vaccines would contribute to this problem. It falls in line with research conducted by Florida’s Department of Health which revealed there has been an 84% increase in cardiac events among 18-39 year old males, that may be associated with the vaccines.

CNN hits record viewership lows

According to data published by Adweek, the average number of people watching CNN on Jan 10, 2023, was just 520,000, with only 120,000 of them in the key demographic, 25 to 54, coveted by advertisers, the Daily Caller reports. These are reportedly the lowest viewership numbers in CNN’s history. This could potentially lead to yet another round of layoffs at the beleaguered network which over the years has been accused of being little more than a shill for the Democrat Party.

Is the left loving the homeless to death? The homeless think so.

An interesting interview of a homeless woman by KATU TV in Portland, Oregon revealed the failure of the left-wing politicos when it comes to dealing with homelessness, The Blaze reports. When asked what it is like being homeless in Portland, the woman who went by the name of Wendy, said it is a piece of cake: “I mean, that’s why you probably got so many out here because they feed you three meals a day, You don’t have to do s*** but stay in your tent or party. Or, if you smoke a lot of dope, you can do that.” Then Wendy added, “They are loving us to death.” Kevin Dahlgren, who works with a homeless outreach called, We Heart Portland, explained what she meant: “Not just Wendy, but multiple homeless have said that the system is ‘loving us to death. They hate the idea that they’re being enabled. They may not say no to it, but they still don’t like it. What they want is to be empowered. They want responsibility. They want accountability.“ …

What We Have Learned about Censorship and Suppression of Speech in ‘Free’ America

By Dr. Michael Brown

America is certainly not China or North Korea when it comes to censorship and suppressing free speech. But we are not nearly as free as we thought we were. The events of the last three years have made that strikingly clear, bringing to a head a dangerous pattern that had been developing for years before that.

Uranium, possibly intended for a dirty bomb, was seized at Britain’s Heathrow Airport

The seizure of a package of Uranium at Heathrow Airport in London, England is raising alarms over fears it was intended for a dirty bomb, the Daily Mail reports. The package containing several kilos of Uranium was shipped from Pakistan to UK-based Iranians and arrived in Britain, on Dec 29, 2022 via Oman Air. Though it was not weapons-grade Uranium and could not be used for a nuclear weapon, it could be combined with a conventional bomb to spread nuclear contamination. According to reports, a major search has been launched for the individuals who were supposed to receive the shipment. If this proves to be the case, this would not be the first time there have been threats of a dirty bomb attack in that country. In 2004, a Muslim convert in Britain by the name of Dhiren Barot was arrested and sentenced to 30 years in prison who was planning to create a dirty bomb for attacks in Britain and the US>, READ: URANIUM’ is found in cargo at Heathrow: Package ‘shipped from Pakistan …

Why are enrollments in Public Schools continuing to drop?

The decline in the number of children attending public schools is continuing in 2023, according to reports The trend towards homeschooling or private schools started before COVID dropped, as parents were already becoming concerned about what is taking place in the public schools. But once COVID hit, the exodus quickly ramped up largely due to the erratic behavior of the public school in response to the pandemic. Parents had no certainty of which way school officials would go, who were seemingly changing their minds on a whim. According to data released by the National Center for Education, the number of children in the public school system dropped from 50.8 million in the fall of 2019 to 49.4 million in the fall of 2020, a drop of over one million students in the course of a year. In 1973, there were approximately 13,000 children being homeschooled by American parents. This had grown to five million by 2020 and this trend is continuing. As an example, the number of students being homeschooled in Texas increased five times …

Will the Biden administration be targeting Christian universities and colleges?

Bob Eitel, president of the Defense of Freedom Institute and a former senior counselor to the secretary of Education, is warning the Biden administration may soon be targeting Christian universities and colleges, the Washington Examiner reports. Eitel raised this concern after the Biden administration announced plans to revisit regulations that impact accreditation and student loans for schools of higher learning. In 2020 then President Donald Trump instituted several changes that allowed Christian schools to function freely according to their faith. This prevented regulators from forcing religious institutions to compromise their values on non-academic issues such as abortion to maintain their eligibility for accreditation and student loan eligibility. “That the Biden Education Department would take it upon themselves to undo that consensus doesn’t make any sense,” Eitel said in his interview with the Washington Examiner. “[And] given some of the anti-faith postures taken by the department in the Biden administration on issues of religion and faith and culture, anybody who attends a faith-based institution should be very concerned about what the department might do.” In an …

Will we all soon be needing a horse and cart?

Seattle school district sues Big Tech over mental health crisis

In an interesting move, a US public school district in Seattle, Washington is suing several social media giants alleging they are causing mental distress, anxiety, and depression among children, Breitbart reports. Included in the list of those being sued are the Chinese-owned TikTok, Facebook and Instagram which are owned by Meta, and also Snapchat, YouTube and Google. In a statement explaining its action, the school board said that it wants to hold “‘social media companies accountable for the harm they have wreaked on the social, emotional, and mental health’ of students.” “The increase in suicides, attempted suicides, and mental-health related emergency room visits is no coincidence,” the statement added. The statement also alleged that Big Tech has manipulated, “the psychology and neurophysiology of their users so that they spend more and more time on their platforms…creating a mental health crisis among young Americans.” READ: Big Tech sued by Seattle schools over mental health ‘crisis’ RELATED: Study: Social Media Causes Children to ‘Dislike Their Own Bodies’ AND Facebook Knows Instagram Is Toxic for Teen Girls, Company …

While secular universities and colleges report declines, enrollment increases at Christian schools

While universities and colleges across America as reporting declines in attendance, the same can’t be said for Christian schools of higher education, the Daily Caller reports. The National Student Clearinghouse Research Center reports that since 2020, the number of students attending universities and colleges across the US has declined 4.2%. While it is easy to blame COVID for the decreased enrollment, there was also a 1.1% decline in the fall of 2022, when the pandemic was largely over. Meanwhile, over the same period of time, many Christian colleges and universities were reporting increases: So while it is easy to blame COVID for the reduced enrollment in secular schools, if it was solely to blame, then the Christian schools should have seen declines as well, but they didn’t. This tells us that other issues are also contributing to the declining attendance in secular schools.

Famed Toronto psychologist, Dr. Jordan Peterson, called in for re-education

I briefly touched on this earlier, but I think it deserves its own post.

If the famed conservative commentator fails to submit to re-education, the college is threatening to pull his license. His crime: Should Dr. Peterson refuse: One person tweeted this interesting comparison: But, I presume Dr. Peterson’s re-education training will not include sleep and food deprivation, blaring heavy rock music 24/7, interrogation and bright lights popularized historical re-education programs.

Peter Hitchens: Calls for a return of facemasks are about fear and control

We are already hearing wails for a return of facemasks and mandatory vaccinations, especially in light of the chaos out of China where its failed zero-covid lockdowns actually made things worse, not better, by preventing people from catching COVID and building up a natural immunity. Peter Hitchens, a columnist for the Daily Mail, recently responded to an editorial in The [London] Times, entitled ‘Wear a Mask, where the newspaper called for people to start wearing facemasks. “It is none of my business, and none of the Government’s business,” Hitchens writes. “What other people wear, on their faces or anywhere else (except for the needs of personal modesty).” “In return, I ask only that you do me the same favour, and do not urge me, let alone try to compel me, to don a garment which I think silly, pointless and politicised.” Hitchens believes this call for a return to facemasks is ultimately about fear and control. But he didn’t stop with just that, Hitchens then pointed to the mountain of evidence that showed that facemasks …

BC government asks doctor to delete database exposing failures of its free drug program for addicts

The British Columbia government, a province of Canada, has asked a leading addictions expert, Simon Fraser University professor Dr. Julian Somers, to delete his database which exposed the failures of the province’s program that provides free drugs to addicts. The extensive database, which provided information on hospitalizations, criminal convictions, and medications since 2004, has been used extensively by researchers studying drug addiction. In his article for the National Post, Adam Zivo explains why the BC government is upset: In B.C., as in much of Canada, the popular approach is to herd homeless people into housing where most, if not all, residents are fresh off the streets, creating a critical mass of trauma and addiction. These residents are then given a “safe supply” of free drugs and provided few resources for recovery and social reintegration. Somers’ study showed that if you house homeless people in a way that disperses them into normal society, and then prioritize rehabilitation, employment and social reintegration, you see a 70 per cent reduction in crimes committed and a 50 per cent …

Germany: Climate activists protest the moving of a hamlet to expand a coal mine

After being conned for several years by environmental extremists, the German government has finally come to its senses and is turning back to tried and true fossil fuels to head off potential blackouts caused by unreliable green energy. The most recent involves the tearing down of the small hamlet of Luetzerath in order to expand a coal mine, which has led to massive protests, VOA News reports. These protests were not taken up by the villagers, who had already sold their homes, but rather by climate change fanatics who occupied the empty houses and refused to leave. When police initially tried to remove the extremists, they pulled back after being confronted with a burning barricade, rocks, bottles, and fireworks. One person also glued themselves to a road. If the activists refuse to leave, the police have been authorized to remove them by force, if necessary, effective January 10th.

Antifa tries to intimidate by vandalizing a San Diego church where Sean Feucht was scheduled to hold a New Year’s service

Members of the left-wing anarchist group, Antifa, vandalized a church in San Diego, California the night before worship leader, Sean Feucht was scheduled to hold a New Year’s Eve service, CBN reports. The outside walls of City View Church and its offices were spray-painted with several messages and threats against Christians and Sean including: Feucht added the police were called and treated it as a hate crime. City View Church, pastored by Troy Singleterry, is a multi-ethnic church that holds services in English and Spanish as well as services for the Swahili, Samoan and Ethiopian communities in their city. Sean made an interesting comment on Instagram in response to the attack which was obviously intended to intimidate the church. He noted that the church flourishes best under persecution. “The enemy making the age-old mistake.” Sean posted on Instagram. “Persecuting the Church won’t stop the gospel, it’ll spark a wildfire.” Many believe that two of the fastest-growing churches in the world are located in two countries where Christians are under attack by the government, Iran and …

Gov. Hochul discovers that socialism works until you run out of other people’s money

During her successful campaign for New York Governor in 2022, Democrat Kathy Hochul enjoyed mocking people who were fleeing the high tax rates and rampant crime that typically define Democrat states by telling them: “Just jump on a bus and head down to Florida where you belong, OK? You are not New Yorkers.” But it seems her tune has changed recently, The Blaze reports. Because people took Hochul’s advice and fled resulting in New York having the largest population decline of any US state in 2022.
