  • ACLU Backs Musk Plan to Reverse Trump Twitter Ban

    You know what I want to know? Where was the ACLU when Trump was first banned on Twitter. I don’t remember them saying a damn thing. I suspect they didn’t say a damn thing. Okay, I was wrong. They did say something, but was a half-hearted objection:

    “We understand the desire to permanently suspend him now, but it should concern everyone when companies like Facebook and Twitter wield the unchecked power to remove people from platforms that have become indispensable for the speech of billions — especially when political realities make those decisions easier,” said Kate Ruane, ACLU senior legislative counsel, in a statement. “President Trump can turn to his press team or Fox News to communicate with the public, but others — like the many Black, Brown, and LGBTQ activists who have been censored by social media companies — will not have that luxury.” – The Washington Times(opens new window)

    They kind of act like it had no effect. I wonder what they had to say about the Biden laptop story? Probably nothing, they probably didn’t even know about it.

    Anyway, this current story from The Epoch Times says this:

    The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has come out in support of Elon Musk to end the Twitter ban of former President Donald Trump.

    Well, good. Welcome to the party.


  • Declaration IV - Restore Scientific Integrity

    A Joint Statement, representing 17,000 Physicians and Medical Scientists to end the National Emergency, Restore Scientific Integrity, and Address Crimes Against Humanity.

    Good video at the source link along with a statement. Here’s a highlight:

    The medical community has denied patients the fundamental human right to provide true informed consent for the experimental COVID-19 injections. Our patients are also blocked from obtaining the information necessary to understand risks and benefits of vaccines, and their alternatives, due to widespread censorship and propaganda spread by governments, public health officials and media. Patients continue to be subjected to forced lock-downs which harm their health, careers and children’s education, and damage social and family bonds critical to civil society. This is not a coincidence. In the book entitled “COVID-19: The Great Reset”, leadership of this alliance has clearly stated their intention is to leverage COVID-19 as an “opportunity” to reset our entire global society, culture, political structures, and economy.

     


  • Fox News Is Headed For Disaster

    Good article about Fox News and their policy not to mention 2000 Mules. How can they? They have continued to assert that the election was not stolen even they helped when they called Arizona for Biden when they had no business doing so. It’s a very good article.

    Fox News has been on a collision course with its own audience since the stolen 2020 election — and you can almost feel the impact coming. The network has made so many dumb bets lately that it’s like watching a busload of trailer park residents get offloaded to play the nickel slots in Reno. All you can do is shake your head as you think: I know they’re all going bankrupt, and they’re already bankrupt. It’s been perfectly obvious for years now that Rupert Murdoch and his feckless sons turned against President Trump and actually helped Joe Biden — which is not just unforgivable. It’s unsustainable.


  • America Has Fallen Into Tyranny

    The Left is exempt from following our laws & everybody knows it

    We do know it. After every major revelation over the last few years we’re told, “This is it. They’re going down now.” But nothing, NOTHING, ever happens. This is not a feel good article, but it rings true.

    Right now, for example, we are watching the political intimidation of Supreme Court justices at their private homes when they don’t favor the woke mob’s whims. Such protests are blatantly illegal — but who really thinks the protestors will be arrested?

    The Hypocrisy of the White House

    Psaki went on to claim with a straight face that the Biden regime “wants privacy to be respected” but since the Left just doxxed five Supreme Court justices it’s a hollow claim. She added that Biden’s “view is that there’s a lot of passion, a lot of fear, a lot of sadness from many, many people across this country about what they saw in that leaked document” which tells you everything you need to know.

    You Can’t Reason with Communists

    There’s no negotiating with these people. Communists think everything is basically about power and violence. It allows them to say or do anything because morality is just a social construct to them. One minute they’ll tell you it’s impossible to define what a woman is because they’re not biologists, and the next minute they’ll scream about how a “woman’s right” to kill her own baby is sacred. They don’t care about hypocrisy — they’ll laugh at you for bringing it up. They hold no consistent positions, and they have no principles — other than holding power. They’re almost allergic to logic.


  • The Politics of Medical Gaslighting

    This is a very good article. I recommend reading all of it. Here are some highlights:

    However, while political dysfunction has always been an issue in medicine, everything went insane during COVID-19.  Scientific evidence that goes against the narrative was censored on every platform, any doctor who challenged the narrative was canceled (often losing their means to support themselves), clearly harmful pharmaceuticals and lockdowns with no real benefit were forced on the population and a wide range of effective treatments were buried.  Things have gotten to the point that many individuals who had previously fully supported the medical establishment broke from the herd to say what their profession was doing was nuts.

    My thesis is that these changes within the politics of medicine are reflective of the broader changes that have occurred in our political system over the last 10 or so years which dramatically accelerated during the Trump presidency.

    Politics in Medicine

    The problem with this politicization creeping into medicine is that you will encounter the identical close mindedness and prejudice you see in conventional politics that has now become sanctioned against parts of the Republican party.  Young doctors will frequently lash out at individuals who question aspects of medical dogma (i.e.. that a drug could be harmful or that it is not appropriate to gender transition young children), and there are cases of medical students being expelled from medical school for offending the political sensibilities of their peers.

    Defense Mechanisms

    There are a variety psychological defense mechanisms people use to protect themselves from cognitive dissonance.  One is to hate individuals who provide information that creates cognitive dissonance so that their message can be ignored.

    A common trend I see amongst weak-minded who repeatedly fail in life is to blame others or bad luck for their failures.  I hate how judgmental that is to say, but it’s been such a common thing for me to encounter throughout life I feel it needs to called out for what it is.  Frequently, the best advice I can give people who repeatedly run into the same issues is to get over themselves and recognize how they are creating the dysfunctional patterns in their lives.

    There has always been a tendency in the medical profession to blame patients for the failure of a pharmaceutical drug to fix their issue (this is another form of medical gaslighting).  There are so many diagnostic labels you can place on someone, that it is extremely easy for a mentally lazy doctor to dehumanize a patient and put them in a box where the treatment failure is entirely the patient’s fault.

    Insecure Doctors

    When individuals are insecure or unsure about their personal choices, they will frequently seek validation from their external environment.  Put differently, the greater someone’s internal doubts are over something, the more aggressively they will push members of their surroundings to validate their belief system.

    The COVID-19 response has been so badly mishandled that it is obvious to even the most committed member of the mainstream tribe something is wrong.  When a doctor directs hatred against a patient who will not vaccinate and is hence responsible for the pandemic not ending, there are many ways this could be interpreted.  My belief is it frequently is an expression of the doctor’s own doubts over the vaccine’s ability to end the pandemic and their participation in that approach (granted there are many other potential explanations too).

    Fearful Doctors

    For a moment, imagine being in the situation of a doctor in NYC who has never had to face the fear of dying in a hospital before.  You go from months of being told the virus in China is a conspiracy and won’t matter to suddenly having waves of patients and a few colleagues dying in front of you while lacking many of the supplies or medical guidelines you need to address the epidemic.  This dramatic upending of their reality and the collective trauma they experienced was sufficient to make many doctors radicalize into supporting a fanatical party line against all things COVID-19 and take up any piece of authoritative guidance given to them.

    After the initial wave of COVID-19 occurred, the messages from the establishment then shifted to COVID-19 being a deadly plague, that there was nothing that could treat COVID-19, and that indefinite lockdowns, cloth masking (which does nothing), and handwashing were what we had to do to mitigate the pandemic.  This was also absurd, and societal messaging was redirected into polarizing people for or against this policy prescription (those in NYC were some of the early foot soldiers to advance this message).  As a result, the debate over those policies was restricted to the political realm rather than them being critically examined within the scientific community where they would not have stood up to outside scrutiny.

    Sad Cases

    As these doubts grew, health care workers who spoke out against the vaccine were retaliated against and the vaccines went from optional to being mandated.  For many people who saw this occurring around them while also having to continue to work, sooner or later, the only real option they had was to block all of it out and pretend it was not happening.  I actually have had a few conversations with physicians who admitted to me they are doing this as an act of self-protection.

    Out of respect to the dead, I will not share the posts directly, but at this point, many of you have seen the posts of extremely arrogant doctors mocking the unvaccinated, getting the vaccine and then dying shortly after from an injury commonly attributed to the vaccine.  The immediate response is to laugh at them and say the doctors got what they deserved.  My own opinion is that they represent very sad cases of being gaslighted to death by their own profession.


  • Dismissing Reality

    I make a small commission if you use this link to buy the book

    This is guest author, David Marks, on Malone’s site on Mattias Desmet’s upcoming book The Psychology of Totalitarianism and the response to Desmet’s ideas in the MSM. Take a wild guess what that was.

    I’ve heard Desmet several times and I have no doubt this will be an important book for our time. Marks writes:

    Mass formation can be associated with mass psychosis, a disturbance in the minds of small or large groups — to the degree where there is a loss of contact with reality — often with an eclipse of morality and objectification of an imagined enemy.

    The hostile and dismissive response to Desmet’s perspective on the pandemic’s emotional climate is both fascinating and revelatory.


  • Enough Fraudulent Votes Identified to Change 2020 Election Outcome: Dinesh D’Souza

    Analysis of cell phone records performed by an election intelligence group shows that thousands of fraudulent ballots were deposited in mail-in drop boxes during the 2020 election, an amount sufficient to change the outcome of the election, said Dinesh D’Souza, director and writer of the documentary “2000 Mules.”

    Trump won. Never forget.


  • Preventable Deaths and D3.

    This is an article by Dr. Robert Malone. Vitamin D3 early on could have helped a lot of people with COVID, but when you can make billions of dollars with an insufficiently tested vaccine, why let anyone know that?

    The inconvenient truth is that even at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, a very simple, inexpensive and effective treatment was available that could have saved the majority of lives lost. All that the WHO and public health bureaucracy had to do was to recommend and support people taking sufficient Vitamin D3. This failure to act traces back to the unscientific bias and pro-vaccine obsession of Dr. Anthony Fauci. And once again the legacy media, while being paid by the US government and the pharmaceutical industry to promote vaccination, acted by censoring, defaming and suppressing the ability of physicians to inform people of scientific truth. The disease you suffered, the loss of life among your family and friends, could have been greatly reduced by simply getting enough Vitamin D3. This is another example of what happens when unelected bureaucrats are allowed to control free speech. Crimes against humanity.

     


  • People Can Still Get J&J Vaccine If They Have a Problem With Other Two Shots: White House

    In the previous news digest I reported that the FDA restricted the use of J&J’s jab because of blood clots. Now the White House, another bastion of reliable medical information, is saying, well, you can still get it if you don’t like the other two. It’s still safe and effective. Don’t worry about it.

    People who, for whatever reason, do not want to get a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine can still get the Johnson & Johnson shot, a top White House health official said on May 6.

    “If you have a problem with one of those two vaccines, then Johnson & Johnson (J&J) is still an option for you,” said Dr. Ashish Jha, the White House COVID-19 coordinator.

    Maybe the FDA and the White House should get on the same page

    Jha also falsely said the update from the FDA was not based on new data. The regulatory agency said in its announcement that the move was based on “an updated analysis” of cases of the blood clots following administration of the J&J vaccine that were reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, a passive reporting system run by the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
