BIDEN'S TWO ACHIEVEMENTS: CORRUPTION AND COMMUNISM IN THE SAME EXECUTIVE ORDER

Once again, President Biden turns toward the dark side…

WORK

President Biden signed an executive order mandating the use of union labor in federally-financed projects through a politically corrupt mechanism known as a “project labor agreement.” This institutionalizes further corruption in the federal funding/contracting process and is a payback to the unions who overwhelmingly support the interests of progressive communist democrats and other corrupt politicians regardless of their member’s wishes. This order will affect nearly 200,000 workers and apply to $262 billion in federal construction contracts.

Remarks by President Biden at Signing of an Executive Order on Project Labor Agreements <Source>

THE PRESIDENT:  But I tell you what: I promised you you would have a union President.  And I am, because you’re the best.
You know, we talk about whether, you know, Wall Street built America.  There are good folks on Wall Street; they’re not bad folks.  There are good people all over the country. 

I tell you who built America: the middle class.  And the people who built the middle class are organized labor — unions, union.  Unions did it.  (Applause.)  That’s not hyperbole.  That’s a fact.  That’s a straight fact. 

And the executive order I’m going to sign today is going to help ensure that we build a better America, we build it right, and we build it on time, and we build it cheaper than it would have been otherwise.

[OCS: This is another of Biden’s bald-faced lies. Most unionized projects are over-schedule, over-budget, and contain a significant amount of waste, fraud, and abuse. The unions are concerned with the dues that protect its political power and provide cushy perks, privileges, and profits to its leadership. Both organized crime and communist agitators have infiltrated and control the most powerful labor unions. Richard Trumka, the leader of the powerful AFL-CIO, was a communist. The unionized dockworkers are openly exploiting the pandemic and assisting in crippling the supply chain logistics that is hurting the economy, and especially the poor and middle classes.]

You know, the executive order is making sure that federal construction projects get completed on time and under budget, saving taxpayers money, clearing construction zones quickly, and ensuring that everything the federal government signs to contract to build is built to last.

[OCS: One need only look at California’s federally-funded high-speed rail project or some of the larger projects in America to see what political corruption and unions have wrought.]

To do — to do that, we’re using a tool that ironworkers here know very well, called “project labor agreements.”  I know you all know it, but folks who may be watching this may not fully understand it.
Simply put, these are agreements that contractors, sub-contractors, and unions put in place before a construction site gets underway — before the construction begins.
They ensure that major projects are handled by well-trained, well-prepared, highly-skilled workers, and they ward off problems.  They resolve disputes ahead of time, ensuring safer work sites, avoiding disruptions and work stoppages that can cause expensive delays down the line.

Executive Order on Use of Project Labor Agreements For Federal Construction Projects <Source>

“Project labor agreement” means a pre-hire collective bargaining agreement with one or more labor organizations that establishes the terms and conditions of employment for a specific construction project and is an agreement described in 29 U.S.C. 158(f). 

Project Labor Agreement Presumption. Subject to sections 5 and 6 of this order, in awarding any contract in connection with a large-scale construction project, or obligating funds pursuant to such a contract, agencies shall require every contractor or subcontractor engaged in construction on the project to agree, for that project, to negotiate or become a party to a project labor agreement with one or more appropriate labor organizations.

[OCS: This is a BIG LIE! These agreements reduce true labor competition, force workers to join labor unions or pay fees to the union, and impose union dictates on members-- enforced with union thuggery. Unionized government projects are usually over-staffed, under-managed, poorly audited, and almost always delayed and over budget.]

And that makes a big difference for the American taxpayer.  Because when big construction projects are completed efficiently and with the highest degree of professionalism, it’s good for the American taxpayer.  That’s not hyperbole; that’s a fact.  We don’t talk about it though.  We don’t talk about how you all save the American taxpayers money.

[OCS: Big money and big construction projects attracts abuse – and that’s no lie!]

Bottom line…

Unions are the most significant source of political corruption and inflationary spirals in America -- where wages increase without corresponding increases in production or benefits to the economy.

There was a time when unions were beneficial in curtailing employer abuses and ensuring worker safety – this is no longer true as employees have a variety of public and private remedies to address their specific grievances. Now, union dues are little more than a political tax on workers. Today, there is little difference between political organizing and union activity.

It is time to end unions, especially public employee unions, and the corruption connection between unions and politicians.

We are so screwed.

YOU STILL CAN'T TRUST THE ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE

It appears that our blog entry, Why Jews Can No Longer Trust the Anti-Defamation League, and the community pushback against racism being colorized as if the definition was written by Black Lives Matter, has been heard.

It appears that the ADL can’t even decide on the definition of racism and needed to publish an “interim definition” which is a cruel joke on people who have experienced oppression and persecution for over 4,000 years.

Weasel words are not the answer and change nothing!

The traditional definition.

"Racism: The belief that a particular race is superior or inferior to another, that a person’s social and moral traits are predetermined by his or her inborn biological characteristics.

The “new” definition (July 2020)

Racism: The marginalization and/or oppression of people of color based on a socially constructed racial hierarchy that privileges white people.

The “newest” definition” (February 2022)

Racism: (interim definition): Racism occurs when individuals or institutions show more favorable evaluation or treatment of an individual or group based on race or ethnicity. (Prof. Robert Livingston, The Conversation). For more about this definition, click here.

Bottom Line…

Where Jews have traditionally supported center-left viewpoints, the current state of the ADL marks a hard shift leftward toward self-hatred and the need to atone for the past racist behavior.

.And where the powerful Anti-Defamation League once stood as a bulwark against the anti-Semitic persecution of Jews for decades., now, not so much. I say screw the ADL – they are no longer worthy of support.

Stand-w-IsraelWe are so screwed.

YOUR JOB OR YOUR LIFE?

The COVID-19 pandemic,  caused by the Chinese Communist Party virus, has given rise to a level of authoritarian public-private cooperation never seen before in the history of the United States.

Coronavirus-EMPLOYMENT--warning

Government policies, limited by Constitutional prohibitions, are bypassed and implemented in the private sector.

Whether private company executives have become political partisans or fear the government's ability to deny contracts, grants, favorable tax breaks, or initiate onerous investigations and public policies, the results are the same -- following government mandates with few questions or objections.

Americans are rapidly losing their freedoms regarding body sovereignty -- the right to self-determine medical interventions that may have life-altering or life-threatening consequences.

Employees are essentially at the mercy of their employers if they want to remain employed.

Given the questionable nature of the science and political motivation underlying public health policies, amplified by sensationalized horror stories in the media, employees are being asked to play a game of statistical Russian Roulette. With little or no recourse from the employer, the government, or your insurance carrier if things go horribly wrong.

Much of what we were told at the beginning of the pandemic about the efficacy of the various therapeutics and social behavior requirements are either partly or wholly untrue. Especially given the introduction of virus variants with higher transmissibility but with seemingly reduced lethality. Or is that because the virus has already decimated much of the vulnerable population?

Consider two widely different companies, Hershey, the candy-maker, and T-Mobile, the communications company. Both have threatened to fire unvaccinated employees.

T-Mobile is preparing to lay off unvaccinated corporate employees by April 2, 2022.

"Employees who have not yet taken action to receive their first dose and upload proof by February 21 will be placed on unpaid leave," the blog quoted the memo as saying. "Affected employees who do not become fully vaccinated ... by April 2 will be separated from T-Mobile."

"We are requiring office workers (with limited exception for certain roles, locations and legally mandated accommodations and exemptions) to be fully vaccinated by April 2." <Source>

Hershey Fires Unvaccinated Employees

The Hershey Company has begun terminating employees who opted not to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.

Alongside their termination, employees are asked to sign a nine-page confidentiality agreement that would waive their rights to sue the company or talk about their experiences with the company.

The agreement Hershey wants employees to sign prohibits them from discussing the agreement’s existence, terms, and conditions and contains a non-disparagement clause preventing employees who sign the agreement from speaking out.

If Hershey employees sign the agreement, they will receive a “special separation payment” determined by an algorithm that some employees say comes out to just over two months’ pay. Many employees are refusing to sign the agreement and subsequently will not receive the severance payment. <Source>

Bottom Line?

In what scenario does a private company demand employees, potentially with known or unknown underlying medical conditions, take medications with questionable efficacy and the potential of life-altering or life-threatening consequences? Or is this a ploy to reduce organization headcounts without negative media attention or age-discrimination lawsuits?

We are rapidly losing our freedoms. Now is an appropriate time to push back against dictatorial companies-- as workers, slowing down internal processes much like government bureaucrats, or as consumers choosing to purchase goods and services elsewhere. Or in the digital age, leaving bad reviews and spreading your story on social media platforms.

For those in danger of censorship or cancelation, perhaps it is time to establish yourself on a free-speech platform like GETTR (replacing Twitter) or Rumble (Replacing YouTube).

We are so screwed.

WHAT ARE YOUR CHILDREN LEARNING FROM HARD CORE BLACK COMMUNIST QUEERS?

Before you get all high and mighty and sling around the racist label, that is the self-described label of the senior Black Lives Matter leadership, and if you are upset, I will give you something to be upset about.

Black Lives Matter, the communist front group founded by hard-core black queers, attempts to subvert children as young as kindergarten-age with their toxic un-American, anti-White, anti-Semitic rhetoric. Separating children into privileged oppressors and victims and pitting them against each other, their parents, and their country.

Blm-truth

Consider BLM’s implementation of a national “Week of Action” to indoctrinate, rather than educate, children in the ways of identity politics, class warfare, and revolution. 

After each principle, I’ve suggested some language you might want to use when talking to young children. Whenever possible, make connections to children’s lived experience, in your classroom, your home, or out in the world.

Restorative Justice is the commitment to build a beloved and loving community that is sustainable and growing. [OCS: Restorative justice is a canard that values the criminal as well as the victim. This is wrong, leads to injustice, and recidivism!]

“We know that if you knock down someone's block building, you have to help them rebuild it,you can't just say, "Sorry," and walk away. Another way to say that is restorative justice, and it's the idea that we have to help people when something happens to them, even if it was by accident.”

Empathy is one’s ability to connect with others by building relationships built on mutual trust and understanding. [OCS: understanding should precede empathy, without understanding, their can be no empathy.]

“It’s so important to think about how other people feel, because different people have different feelings. Sometimes it helps to think about how you would feel if the same thing that happened to your friend happened to you. Another way to say that is empathy.”

Loving Engagement is the commitment to practice justice, liberation and peace. [OCS: A nonsensical word salad devoid of rational meaning.]

“It’s so important to make sure that we are always trying to be fair and peaceful. We have to keep practicing this so that we can get better and better at it. Another way to say that is loving engagement.”

Diversity is the celebration and acknowledgment of differences and commonalities across cultures. [OCS: There is nothing wrong with diversity, unless it is weaponized to benefit a certain class of individuals at the expense of another class.]

“Different people do different things and have different feelings. It’s so important that we have lots of different kinds of people in our community and that everyone feels safe. Another way to say that is diversity.”

Globalism is our ability to see how we are impacted or privileged within the Black global family that exists across the world in different regions. [OCS: Why do few question the exemplary performance of black immigrants from the global community when measured against the poor performance of indigenous inner city blacks?]

“Globalism means that we are thinking about all the different people all over the world, and thinking about the ways to keep things fair everywhere.” [OCS: There is no way to overcome human nature except with authoritarian force and nature is built on a construct of competing and cooperating interests.]

Transgender Affirming is the commitment to continue to make space for our trans siblings by encouraging leadership and recognizing trans-antagonistic violence, while doing the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk. [OCS: You cannot make people feel better about themselves or others by decree.]

“Everybody has the right to choose their own gender by listening to their own heart and mind. Everyone gets to choose if they are a girl or a boy or both or neither or something else, and no one else gets to choose for them.”

Queer Affirming is working towards a queer-affirming network where heteronormative thinking no longer exists. [OCS: regardless of the academically-inspired label, “heteronormative thinking” is the default of the majority of our society. To believe otherwise is to impose the tyranny of the minority on the majority.] 

“Everybody has the right to choose who they love and the kind of family they want by listening to their own heart and mind.”

Collective Value means that all Black lives, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status or location, matter.

Everybody is important, and has the right to be safe and happy. Another way to say that is collective value.” [OCS: It is contradictory to claim all black lives matter and then teach “everybody is important. If everybody is important, than all lives matter.]”

Intergenerational is a space free from ageism where we can learn from each other. [OCS: It is ironic that the Hollywood elites have built an extreme form of ageism that is both openly acknowledged and ignored. Many cultures are respectful of their elders as it should be.] 

“It’s important that we have spaces where people of different ages can come together and learn from each other. Another way to say that is intergenerational.”

Black Families creates a space that is family friendly and free from patriarchal practices. “There are lots of different kinds of families; what makes a family is that it’s people who take care of each other. It’s important to make sure that all families feel welcome.” [OCS: Without male role models and a guiding hand, many young men become irresponsible, unreliable, and are prone to mistreat others. It is bad enough we are raising another generation of little boys who are being conditioned to act like obedient little girls. Much of the black male ethos comes from poor influences in the media and in the community.]

Black Villages is the disruption of Western nuclear family dynamics and a return to the“collective village” that takes care of each other. [OCS: Communism on display!]

“There are lots of different kinds of families; what makes a family is that it’s people who take care of each other; those people might be related, or maybe they choose to be family together and to take care of each other. Sometimes, when it’s lots of families together, it can be called a village.”

Black Women is the building of women-centered spaces free from sexism, misogyny, and male-centeredness. [OCS: As one would expect from a lesbian-centric leadership.]

“There are some people who think that women are less important than men. We know that all people are important and have the right to be safe and talk about their own feelings.”

Unapologetically Black is the affirmation that Black Lives Matter and that our love, and desire for justice and freedom are prerequisites for wanting that for others. These principles are the blueprint for healing and do not include nor do they support ignoring or sanitizing the ugliness and discomfort that comes with dealing with race and anti-race issues. [Black Lives Matter is evil as they promote a toxic ideology that has killed and enslaved millions. The only equality is the equality of misery – except for the BLM leadership who are suddenly millionaires.]

“There are lots of different kinds of people and one way that we’re different is the color of our skin. It’s important to make sure that all people are treated fairly, and that’s why we, and lots of other people all over the country and the world are part of the Black Lives Matter movement.”

BLM donors get screwed...

Black Lives Matter sent millions to bogus charity run by Patrisse’s wife…

Black Lives Matter transferred millions to a Canadian entity run by the wife of its co-founder to purchase a sprawling mansion that had once served as the headquarters of the Communist Party.

M4BJ, a Toronto-based non-profit set up by Janaya Khan and other Canadian grifters, snagged the 10,000 square foot historic property for $6.3 million in cash in July 2021, according to Toronto property records viewed by The NY Post. Khan is the wife of Patrisse Khan-Cullors, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter Global Foundation Network and a self-avowed Marxist.

She resigned from the group last year, a month after The Post revealed that she had spent $3.2 million on homes in Georgia and Los Angeles. In Canada, the purchase was criticized by two senior members of the group who resigned earlier this month over the building’s funding. <Source>

Bottom line…

Consider traditional core beliefs and values.

(1)  All lives matter and are worthy of respect, and you do not empower certain people by disempowering others.

(2)  The nuclear family, not a collective coalition of competing interests, is the most effective way to raise children.

(3)  Individuals are not responsible for the behavior and actions of their ancestors or members of the same “identity class.” You are individually responsible for your own behavior and actions.

(4)  Excusing or ignoring the behavior of evildoers based on “restorative justice” is morally wrong and reprehensible.

(5)  A small vocal minority, with the help of a corrupt media echo chamber, should not be allowed to impose tyranny on the majority.

(6) One needs to consider the competing interests at play in any situation before the decision-making process is complete.

(7)  Lifestyle choices trump legislation and authoritarian mandates.

(8)  Everything you need to know is contained in the Ten Commandments or condensed into the Golden “Do unto others….” Rule.

We are so screwed when we allow BLM to riot rather than protest.

WHY LEFTIST JUDGES CAN NO LONGER BE TRUSTED ON THE BENCH

How would you answer this question?

Is racial discrimination wrong?

For most Americans, the answer would be a near-instantaneous “yes, racial discrimination is wrong.”

However, when the question was posed to Kenly Kiya Kato at her confirmation hearing to become a judge of the United States District Court…  

Biden judicial nominee refuses to say whether racial discrimination is wrong

Biden judicial nominee Kenly Kiya Kato avoided directly answering a question from Republican Sen. Ted Cruz about whether or not racial discrimination is "wrong." Kato, President Biden’s nominee to be a United States District Judge in California, declined to give a yes or no answer at a Tuesday Senate hearing.

"Senator, our Constitution prohibits discrimination on the basis of race," Kato said in response to the question.

"Let me ask you again, is racial discrimination wrong?" Cruz asked again.

Kato responded by saying that as a judge she does not deal with "issues of morality," at which point Cruz asked if she has any views of whether discrimination is "right or wrong."

Kato again declined to answer because "that is an issue that is frequently litigated before the courts."

"OK, so why does the Constitution prohibit racial discrimination?" Cruz asked.

"Senator, I think it’s part of the Constitution and this nation’s history of aiming for equal justice and treating people regardless of any protected class status equally and fairly," Kato said.

"So discriminating based on race violates, I think you just said, our Constitution’s history of aiming for justice," Cruz responded. "Is that a fair characterization?"

Kato again declined to directly answer and said that racial discrimination "under the law" is prohibited.

Cruz then moved on to a different question regarding Harvard University Law School, which both he and Kato attended at the same time, and which is being sued in a case before the Supreme Court for racial discrimination against Asian students.

Kato, who is of Asian descent, declined to comment when asked by Cruz if she was concerned about discrimination against Asians on college campuses across the country.  <Source>

Had Kato answered the question like most Americans, the deception, duplicity, hypocrisy, and intellectual bankruptcy of affirmative action and Critical Race Theory would be highlighted for what it is: unconstitutional discrimination applied to one group for the benefit of another group.

Why is her answer troubling?

KatoBeyond the obvious refusal to answer the question, any competent lawyer would have immediately cited Section 1 of the Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. <Source>

Bottom line…

Either Kenly Kiya Kato is a racist, or she is afraid to answer the question fearing a potential backlash by the progressive communist democrats and their media propagandists. Either way, she should withdraw her name or fail confirmation.

We are so screwed.

ZUCKED AT CNN: JEFF ZUCKER OUT

How the once respected news organization CNN has fallen at the hands of progressive communist democrats and their “woke” policies they seem to violate with impunity.

ZUCKER-CNNCNN, known derisively by many as the Communist News Network for their slavish fealty and willingness to spread propaganda on behalf of the communist-infiltrated and controlled Democrat Party, has seen its titular head, Jeff Zucker, resign.

Zucker, the previous CEO of NBCUniversal, the other progressive communist democrat propaganda operation, “forgot” to disclose a sexual relationship with a subordinate to the nannies in CNN’S HR department. Facing an investigation and dismissal, which could result in a contract breach and loss of a significant amount of money, Zucker resigned.

As part of the investigation into Chris Cuomo’s tenure at CNN, I was asked about a consensual relationship with my closest colleague, someone have worked with for more than 20 years. I acknowledged the relationship evolved in recent years. I was required to disclose it when it began but I didn’t. I was wrong.

As a result, I am resigning today.

I came to CNN on January 28, 2013. Together, we had nine great years. I certainly wish my tenure here had ended differently. But it was an amazing run. And I loved every minute. I am grateful to the thousands of incredibly talented CNN and Turner Sports employees who helped make this such a joy for me, and such a success for all of us.

I wish each of you nothing but the best in the years ahead.

With gratitude and much love.

Jeff

Bottom line…

Only in the world of progressive communist democrats is a person’s behavior behind closed doors important and subject to public discussion and approval. Since it appears that there was no coercion or disadvantage to other employees, by all rights, this is a non-event.

Personally, I believe you do not destroy executive talent (even though I dislike Zucker’s politics) for personal matters between consenting adults – but then again, I am not a progressive communist democrat.

Zucker is a fortunate man. His value and career are intact. He is wealthy and politically connected. His health issues are likely to improve with the reduction of job-related stress.

Funny how these guys all seem to find that single rose in a mound of manure.

However, and more realistically, I cannot help but wonder if the CNN Board seized on a sexcapade that was widely known in the television industry as a pretext to oust Zucker over CNN's dismal performance or some other, as yet undisclosed, matter. One might also ask, was the strong and abrasive Zucker "too strong" for the feminized virtue-signaling pussies at CNN who favor turning little boys into obedient little girls with chemicals and castration?

WHY JEWS CAN NO LONGER TRUST THE ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE

Once again, the Jews have been betrayed by the progressive communist Democrats as they continue to marginalize Jews and damage or destroy the State of Israel.

Consider how the leadership has changed the organization under Jonathan Greenblatt, the sixth National Director and CEO who previously served as a Special Assistant to President Obama and Director of the Office of Social Innovation. President Obama, an anti-Semite who openly worshiped for decades under the virulently anti-Semitic Reverend Jerimiah Wright. Obama, a president who open disrespected the State of Israel and its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Obama, a president who openly empowered Israel’s mortal enemy Iran by providing a path to nuclear arms and an agreement that conveniently forgot to restrict the production of long-range ballistic missiles. Not to mention bailing out Iran’s faltering economy by releasing billions of previously blocked funds. Obama paid a ransom for hostages using pallets of cash, delivered in the dead of night in an unmarked aircraft.

Consider how the definition of racism has been changed under the purview of Greenblatt. 

The traditional definition.

"Racism: The belief that a particular race is superior or inferior to another, that a person’s social and moral traits are predetermined by his or her inborn biological characteristics. Racial separatism is the belief, most of the time based on racism, that different races should remain segregated and apart from one another,"

The “new definition.”

Racism: The marginalization and/or oppression of people of color based on a socially constructed racial hierarchy that privileges white people.

Also related are the definitions of Race and Systemic Racism.

Race: Refers to the categories into which society places individuals on the basis of physical characteristics (such as skin color, hair type, facial form and eye shape). Though many believe that race is determined by biology, it is now widely accepted that this classification system was in fact created for social and political reasons. There are actually more genetic and biological differences within the racial groups defined by society than between different groups.

Systemic Racism: A combination of systems, institutions and factors that advantage white people and for people of color, cause widespread harm and disadvantages in access and opportunity. One person or even one group of people did not create systemic racism, rather it: (1) is grounded in the history of our laws and institutions which were created on a foundation of white supremacy;* (2) exists in the institutions and policies that advantage white people and disadvantage people of color; and (3) takes places in interpersonal communication and behavior (e.g., slurs, bullying, offensive language) that maintains and supports systemic inequities and systemic racism.

* In the above definition, the term “white supremacy” refers to the systematic marginalization or oppression of people of color based on a socially constructed racial hierarchy that privileges people who identify as white. It does not refer to extremist ideologies which believe that white people are genetically or culturally superior to non-whites and/or that white people should live in a whites-only society.

--Last updated July 2020 <Source: ADL>

The new definition openly states that racism is a white phenomenon and reads as if it was crafted by the Marxist-trained leadership of Black Lives Matter, the domestic terrorists that serve as a Communist front organization.

The definition also marginalizes one’s Jewishness as a defining characteristic of their identity in favor of an academic racial construct. This is little more than an attempt to divide Jews and negate their historical cooperation with blacks in their community-- primarily based on shared oppression by WASPs (White Anglo-Saxon Protestants).

Amnesty International

Speaking of organizations that are anti-Semitic and anti-Israel, let us not forget Amnesty International.

It appears that Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran. who believe that Israel does not have a right, moral or legal, to exist have found kindred spirits in Amnesty International. The organization's recent 280-page report, (ISRAEL’S APARTHEID AGAINST PALESTINIANS: CRUEL SYSTEM OF DOMINATION AND CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY) naming Israel an “apartheid” state is deceptive, dishonest, and disgusting.

The corrupt organization ignores the fact that there is no such thing as a "Palestinian" homeland, the term was invented in Russia to help bolster terrorist Yasser Arafat's fundraising efforts, and its report is a long indictment of Israel that purports to show Israel as an apartheid state because of its treatment of Palestinians in Israel and the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza.

The sad facts that they ignore are that peace initiatives have been ignored by the so-called Palestinians since Israel was founded and that Israel is constantly under attack and must enforce security measures to protect its civilian population from terror attacks.

It is a remarkable show of restraint that Israel does not destroy most of the area used for thousands of random unguided rockets attacks on innocent civilians.

Bottom Line…

Where Jews have traditionally supported center-left viewpoints, the current state of the ADL marks a hard shift leftward toward self-hatred and the need to atone for the past racist behavior.

.And where a powerful Anti-Defamation League once stood as a bulwark against the anti-Semitic persecution of Jews for decades., now, not so much. I say screw the ADL – they are no longer worthy of support.

Stand-w-IsraelWe are so screwed.

P.S.  Experts who study anti-Semitism point out that Jews have been referred to as both a race and a religious group. As a matter of law and custom in the United States and Israel, they are considered both.

HOW CORRUPT IS THE LEADERSHIP OF THE FDA AND CDC?

Suppose the government’s concern is public health is genuinely about stopping the ravages of the Communist Chinese Virus and caring for the population. Why is the government intervening and interfering with proven therapeutics without credible scientific evidence to justify their decision?

Fda-work

More importantly, why is the government threatening physicians with the loss of their employment or licenses if they attempt to provide “best efforts” medical care to their patients. If its about public health, why the secrecy, the restrictions, and a contradictory narrative?

Governor DeSantis Condemns Biden Administration’s Haphazard Decision to Revoke Authorization of Lifesaving Monoclonal Antibody Treatments

“Without a shred of clinical data to support this action, Biden has forced trained medical professionals to choose between treating their patients or breaking the law,” said Governor Ron DeSantis. “This indefensible edict takes treatment out of the hands of medical professionals and will cost some Americans their lives. There are real-world implications to Biden’s medical authoritarianism – Americans’ access to treatments is now subject to the whims of a failing president.”

“Rather than giving Americans the option for various COVID treatments, the FDA and the Biden Administration issued their royal decree, taking away the very thing that is proven to reduce hospitalizations and save lives,” said Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez. “Monoclonal antibody treatments like Regeneron have had a positive impact for thousands of Floridians. For the CDC and FDA, which have been consistently inconsistent throughout the entire pandemic, to restrict treatment does nothing but put individuals at risk.”

“In our field of medicine, when someone comes to you seeking a treatment that could save their life, it is essential to have treatment options to ensure health care providers can make the best decisions for their patients,” said Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo. “The Federal Government has failed to adequately provide the United States with adequate outpatient treatment options for COVID-19. Now, they are scrambling to cover up a failure to deliver on a promise to ‘shut down the virus.’” <Source>

FDA says it needs 75 years to release Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine data to the public

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says it now needs 75 years to fully release Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine data to the public – twenty years more than it originally agreed on November 15. The request to increase the time limit is to comply with demands for basic transparency and accountability over the FDA decision in December 2020 to grant Pfizer-BioNTech “Emergency Use Authorization” for its mRNA therapeutic drugs being marketed as “vaccines.” <Source>

Judge Tosses 75 Year FDA Delay, Orders Pfizer Vaccine Data Released in 8 Months

The timeline ordered Thursday by U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman radically shortens the timeline under which the FDA has to produce troves of documents. The order stems from a Freedom of Information Act document lawsuit by a coalition of doctors and scientists with the nonprofit Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency. The group seeks an estimated 450,000 pages of material about the vaccine-creation process during the COVID-19 pandemic, which came into full force in the United States in March 2020.

Rather than producing 500 pages a month, the FDA’s proposed timeline, Pittman ordered the agency to turn over 55,000 a month. That means all the Pfizer vaccine data should be public by the end of September rather than the year 2097, the deadline that the FDA wanted. <Source>

Pfizer pushes to intervene in lawsuit seeking COVID vaccine information from FDA

Pfizer Inc wants to intervene in a Texas federal lawsuit seeking information from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration used in licensing the company's COVID-19 vaccine, a litigation move that plaintiffs who are suing for the data say is premature.

Pfizer's lawyers at DLA Piper told U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman on Jan. 21 it wanted a role in the proceedings to help the FDA avoid "inappropriately" disclosing trade secret and confidential commercial information.

On Tuesday night, the group of doctors and scientists who sued last year over public access to the FDA's Pfizer licensing records said in a court filing that the company's bid to jump into the lawsuit was untimely because the plaintiffs have not challenged any redactions to requested records. Earlier this month, the judge ordered a fast-track release of hundreds of thousands of documents, calling the case "of paramount public importance." <Source>

Someone knows what is in those documents and why the government wants to hide the details of its public-private partnership with Pfizer. With the progressive communist democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), don’t hold your breath waiting for an investigation into the source of the virus or the government’s response under the FDA and CDC.

Bottom line…

With the leadership of the Biden Administration and its premier agencies suspect, how can an American citizen trust their government? Why is a serial liar like Dr. Anthony Fauci still the public face of the Biden Administration’s Chinese Communist Virus pandemic response team? Why are he and other key accomplices not being investigated and prosecuted for violating government directives and participating in funding this virus, which has killed millions of people? Or for covering up their roles in the affair?

WHY ARE LEGITIMATE AND PROVEN THERAPEUTICS BEING RESTRICTED? Some conspiracy theorists questioning the government's motivation, going so far as to suggest reducing the senior citizen population to reduce Social Security, Medicare, and Pension costs -- including a bonus infusion of cash from so-called inheritance “death” taxes? All appear driven by the public pronouncements of the population control and de-growthers moving the Democrat Party. 

Why is the majority of test kits sourced from China? Why do we continue to pump billions of dollars into China? Will the test kits produce false positives to keep the lockdown? Could test kits be used as a vector for Chinese bio-warfare? Does the United States have the guts to protect the U.S. from Chinese aggression? 

We are so screwed.

THE FALSE TRAYVON MARTIN NARRATIVE CONTINUES...

I find it appalling that New York magazine would produce a 59-page special section honoring a black thug, Trayvon Martin, as if he were a civil rights martyr and repeating many of the media-concocted falsehoods of the day.

Tvm

“On February 26, 2012, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida, because as a Black boy walking in a gated community, he was deemed “suspicious.” Zimmerman’s acquittal appalled a nation often willfully blind to the vulnerability of living while Black. Ten years later, “Black Lives Matter” has grown from a hashtag to a protester’s cry to a cultural force that has reshaped American politics, society, and daily life. It is, at the same time, a specific collection of organizations and people whose decisions have attracted both applause and criticism; whose actions have been a source of intrigue; whose personal relationships have both strengthened and splintered under the stress and exposure. This special issue attempts to tell the story of the first decade of Black Lives Matter, the movement — as well as the country it moved.” <Source>

The truth is uncomplicated.

Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old thug with a history of theft and thuggery, was observed by a neighborhood watch member, George Zimmerman, behaving suspiciously (walking between houses) in a gated community that experienced break-ins and property thefts. It appears that Zimmerman did everything right and notified the police. While the police were en route, Martin chose to violently confront an armed Zimmerman who, while fighting on the ground and fearing for his life, shot and killed Martin.

However, seeking a sensational story, the media crafted a false scenario of an armed white wannabe police officer attacking an innocent black teenager. Add the black activists and their bullhorns, the media echo chamber, and a decade of rioting ensued.

Bottom line…

The Trayvon Martin story is not worth telling, nor is the persecution, not prosecution, of George Zimmerman, other than to say that it was a dishonest media and black activists who turned a criminal-citizen encounter into a racial statement. If anything. Zimmerman, whose life was destroyed, was the real victim – followed by a public subjected to falsehoods, riots, and mayhem.

This is what happens when the narrative replaces the news. Something that is increasingly destroying our nation.

We are so screwed.
