A Left Turn Toward Biased Ignorance – Issues & Insights

Posted by M. C. on April 20, 2021

“In other words, voters were twice as likely to believe certain progressive myths than conservative ones,” according to the report. No doubt that’s a residual effect from our left-leaning media, which now spews socialist “narratives” instead of facts.

I & I Editorial Board

With the extreme left culturally ascendant, many of our most treasured and valuable national institutions have become houses of progressive Groupthink. Meanwhile, our nation’s founding principles, basic morality, values and even science have come under sustained hostile ideological assault by both the media and academia. Bias and ignorance have been institutionalized. Sadly, according to a new report, voters bear much of the blame for this.

No question, America is a mess. But how did it get that way? The simple answer, the poll of voters suggests, is ignorance, along with pervasive media and political bias.

The study is based on a survey of voters taken shortly after the 2020 presidential election by Just Facts, which describes itself as “a non-profit institute dedicated to publishing comprehensive, straightforward, and rigorously documented facts about public policy issues.”

The group’s most recent study is eye-opening.

It shows, Just Facts says, “that the vast bulk of voters have embraced false and harmful dogmas that accord with their political views.” This, it adds, is largely due to what’s called confirmation bias, “the human tendency to reflexively accept anything that accords with one’s preexisting beliefs and ignore or twist everything that defies them.”

It’s true that both sides of the political debates have their biases.

For instance, among Trump voters, some 76% believe that incomes for the middle class fell during the Obama years. In fact, on average they rose by $5,300.

No group is perfect. But those on the left show themselves to be, well, delusional about what they know and don’t know.

For instance, among Biden voters, 88% believe police are more likely to use deadly force when arresting black Americans than white ones. Wrong. In fact, they’re 42% less likely to use deadly force against blacks.

This, as much as anything, might illustrate why cities around the nation now are wracked by race riots and political violence by far-left extremists like BLM and Antifa. Ignorant voters decry the violence and property destruction, but then excuse it and vote for those who propagate it.

As for the impacts of climate change, only about 38% of Trump voters but 86% of Biden voters believe that the number of powerful, destructive tornadoes has increased since the 1950s. This, by the way, is part of the left’s narrative that global warming has created far-reaching climatic changes, among them violent tornadoes.

Not true. In fact, the average number of violent hurricanes has fallen somewhat.

We could go on. Just Facts asked 21 such questions of 1,000 randomly selected people in their survey, enough for a 3% margin of error.

The average voter correctly answered just 38% of the questions, were wrong 51% of the time, and unsure 10% of the time. A majority could only answer four of the 21 questions correctly.

Think of that when an HR1 supporter says we need more uninformed people voting to “perfect our democracy.”

Perhaps showing the effects of a pervasively left-biased mainstream media, wrong answers strongly correlated to partisan agendas. The data clearly showed this: An average of 57% of the incorrect answers were liberally misinformed, while just 28% were conservatively misinformed.

“In other words, voters were twice as likely to believe certain progressive myths than conservative ones,” according to the report. No doubt that’s a residual effect from our left-leaning media, which now spews socialist “narratives” instead of facts.

And therein lies the rub.

Because, as it turns out, the left are far more likely to believe things and propagate ideas that are factually false than are people on the right. That’s of course completely contrary to the media’s repeated claims that leftists and progressives are more attuned to “science” and “fact-based” reality than conservatives are.

“For all 10 of the questions in which the electorate was most deluded, the wrong answers they gave concurred with progressive narratives propagated by the media,” the voter study showed. “Moreover, the false answers they gave were often far removed from reality, not just slightly mistaken.”

As an example, Just Facts noted, some 66% of voters thought that by doubling the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour, poor families would see their average incomes rise by 25% or more. The real number, as estimated by the Congressional Budget Office from actual labor market and income data, is about 1%.

One final point. Here’s the breakdown for the rate of wrong answers given to the survey’s questions, by demographic and voting group. The numbers speak for themselves.

  • 61% for Biden voters
  • 56% for 18- to 34-year olds
  • 53% for females
  • 51% for 35- to 64-year olds
  • 51% for 65+ year olds
  • 49% for males
  • 42% for Trump voters

Please remember this the next time some leftist in the media tries to convince you how bright, humane and enlightened the sinistral side of the political spectrum is. And you can expect this delusion to get even worse as the Democratic Party continues its very own political gender “transition” to becoming a straight-up, no-apologies Socialist Party.

As President Reagan said, oh-so politely, years ago, “The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.”

Straight From the Horse’s Mouth: The Vaccines Are Ineffective – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on April 20, 2021

In fact, it now appears that the very vaccines that were supposed to protect you from Covid may make you more vulnerable to it. This is from another study conducted in Israel, one of the world’s most vaccinated nations:

“Israeli researchers found people who received two doses of the Pfizer vaccine were eight times more likely to be infected with the South African variant, and people who received one dose of the vaccine were more likely to get the UK variant.”

It is time to rise up against this gargantuan healthcare fraud and hold the perpetrators and their accomplices responsible.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2021/04/vasko-kohlmayer/straight-from-the-horses-mouth-the-vaccines-are-ineffective/

By Vasko Kohlmayer

“Pfizer CEO says third Covid vaccine dose likely needed within 12 months,” reads a recent CNBC headline. “Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla said people will ‘likely’ need a third dose of a Covid-19 vaccine within 12 months of getting fully vaccinated,” we are told.

“Moderna hopes to have Covid booster shot for its vaccine ready by the fall, CEO says,” announces another CNBC report. “Moderna hopes to have a Covid booster shot available for Americans by the fall, according to CEO Stephane Bancel,” the article reassures concerned readers.

The hidden lead in these reports is that one of history’s greatest frauds is being perpetrated right before our eyes. This should be obvious to anyone capable of making a logical deduction.

The inescapable implication of these reports is that the vaccines being currently administered will not give you sufficient protection against Covid-19 going forward. In other words, these injections are ineffective.

If these vaccines were effective, the CEOs of these companies would not speak about the necessity of receiving another shot in a few months’ time.

Let us spell it out again: come this fall, the vaccine that you have taken or are about to take will not protect you from Covid.

Why, then, are governments still going ahead with these massive vaccination programs that inject ineffective pharmaceuticals into the arms of millions every day?

For not only are these hastily cooked up concoctions ineffective, they are outright dangerous. Thousands of people have been needlessly killed by them and hundreds of thousands have suffered serious injuries.

“10,000+ deaths after COVID shots reported by U.S., European agencies,” we read in a report that compiled data collected by various government bodies. “More than 7,000 deaths have occurred in Europe, and more than 200,000 injuries worldwide have been reported,” we learn.

The question is this: why are these vaccination programs – which are causing widespread death and injury – and which are ineffective vis-à-vis their stated purpose, i.e., protecting against Covid, allowed to continue?

This is nothing less than a crime against humanity, which is being carried out by pharma companies and their enablers in government and the scientific community with the help of the media shills.

Real scientists have always known that due to the mutating nature of the virus, it will not be possible to come up with an effective vaccine against Covid-19. This, however, did not stop pharma executives and their scientific sidekicks from cooking up ineffective and dangerous concoctions and then injecting them into the bodies of hundreds of millions of human beings.

Why would they do this? Because of money, of course. The value of Moderna’s CEO shares, for example, has now shot up to about five billion dollars. Not a bad payoff for other peoples’ pain.

Tellingly, the CEO, Stephane Bancel, has refused to reveal his own vaccination status.

But the fraud runs even deeper. Not only will the presently offered vaccines be ineffective against variants that will emerge in the fall, but they are already ineffective against some of the variants in circulation right now.

Just consider this headline from CNBC: “Covid variant from South Africa was able to ‘break through’ Pfizer vaccine in Israeli study.” The piece’s opening sentence informs us that “[t]he coronavirus variant first discovered in South Africa is able to evade some of the protection of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.” This should make everyone pause, since the South African variant is a widespread mutation that has been detected in dozens of countries around the world and has already become the dominant strain in some of them.

In fact, it now appears that the very vaccines that were supposed to protect you from Covid may make you more vulnerable to it. This is from another study conducted in Israel, one of the world’s most vaccinated nations:

“Israeli researchers found people who received two doses of the Pfizer vaccine were eight times more likely to be infected with the South African variant, and people who received one dose of the vaccine were more likely to get the UK variant.”

It is time to rise up against this gargantuan healthcare fraud and hold the perpetrators and their accomplices responsible.

Finally, Germany is talking about ‘Dexit’ – spiked

Posted by M. C. on April 20, 2021

The AfD has taken its most Eurosceptic line yet. That’s good news for democracy.

https://www.spiked-online.com/2021/04/19/finally-germany-is-talking-about-dexit/

Sabine Beppler-Spahl
Germany Correspondent

Could the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland) be about to make history? Before the AfD’s party conference had even ended last Sunday, the term ‘Dexit’ – short for a German exit from the EU – was circulating in the press. The reason is the AfD’s programme for September’s elections: ‘We consider a withdrawal of Germany from the European Union and the establishment of a new European Economic and Interest Community necessary’, it says – a demand which has caused more than a little stir.

This is the furthest the AfD has ever gone in its opposition to the EU. Of course, its programme has other demands, but it is in the Dexit policy that many commentators see proof of an increasing influence of the far-right within the party’s ranks. The AfD is now ‘openly radical’, said Der Spiegel. Deutschlandfunk, Germany’s state radio station, reminded its listeners that before the 2019 European elections, AfD delegates had still been willing to follow the leadership’s milder Euroscepticism, only calling for Germany to leave the Euro.

Pro-EU commentators in Germany have long tried to dismiss any EU scepticism as right-wing extremism – the fact that the AfD is now campaigning for Dexit seems to confirm their point. But most are also anxiously asking themselves how many voters the AfD might win over with its new anti-EU programme. Time and again, the AfD has demonstrated a good sense of the mood in large parts of the population. And even though pundits like to pretend that party delegates were manipulated by the right-wing Björn Höcke (the leader of the notorious Flügel wing of the party), they know this is wrong.

The real reason the AfD has embraced Dexit, after long debates at the party congress, is simply that delegates believe it can help the party reach more voters. Dexit has given the AfD an important and unique selling point for the upcoming elections.

The EU is more unpopular in Germany than ever – and it isn’t just the AfD that knows it. There are many reasons: Ursula von der Leyen’s undemocratic appointment as EC president, the unresolved refugee crisis, the coronavirus vaccination disaster, and the way in which the Next Generation EU Recovery Fund is being waved through parliaments, despite its risks and uncertainties (a lawsuit against it is currently pending before the German constitutional court).

Only the most arrogant or naive Europhile could expect the electorate not to notice any of this. And it would be absurd to believe that no party would try to capitalise on voters’ rising sense of frustration. And since the Left Party (Die Linke) abandoned Euroscepticism several years ago, the field has been left to the AfD.

So is it good or bad that the AfD is calling for Dexit? Of course it would be good if others, perhaps even some new parties, could develop a serious critique of the EU and offer an alternative to German voters. But it is good that Dexit has at least been brought into the election campaign. The very possibility of a critical debate emerging will put pressure on our already defensive establishment to find better arguments for the EU than ‘it’s a nice idea’ or ‘it’s good for our exports’.

Of course, only the election itself will show how successful the AfD’s campaign will be – but the party might find that it is pushing against an open door.

The Ron Paul Institute-Why Can’t We ‘Just March Out’ Of Afghanistan

Posted by M. C. on April 20, 2021

A recent article in the Military Times lays out the massive disaster of the US two-decade war on Afghanistan: more than two trillion dollars spent – much of it going to fund crooked practices in Afghanistan and here at home. And even worse, the Cost of War Project has estimated that a quarter of a million people have been killed in the war.

https://us6.campaign-archive.com/home/?u=a6b3044a9fe8889c822d11c16&id=6e64bb3c73

Why Can’t We ‘Just March Out’ Of Afghanistan

Apr 19 – Last week President Biden announced a “full” US withdrawal from Afghanistan – the longest war in US history – by the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attack on the United States. While this announcement is to be welcomed, the delayed US withdrawal may result in Americans and Afghans dying needlessly for good PR optics back home. We all remember how many Americans died after President Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” stunt in Iraq.

The war has been a disaster from day one. So why wait to end it?

The previous Trump Administration had negotiated an agreement for the US to be out of Afghanistan by the first of May, but in its obsession with tossing out anything associated with Trump, President Biden will continue to keep US troops in harm’s way in this pointless war.

The Taliban have kept their end of the “Doha Agreement” signed under then-President Trump: no Americans have been killed in Afghanistan for more than a year. However, the US side under President Biden will formally violate the Agreement by keeping US troops in-country after May 1st. The Taliban has announced that it will hold the US “liable” for remaining in-country after the agreed-upon departure date. That means more Americans may be killed.

The outcome of the war will not be altered in the slightest by keeping US troops in Afghanistan four additional months. The withdrawal is already announced and no one paying attention expects the corrupt US-backed Kabul government to survive. It is another Saigon moment, proving that the intellectually bankrupt US foreign policy and military established has learned absolutely nothing from history. So if another American is killed, who is going to explain to the grieving family why their loved one had to remain in harm’s way for a good 9/11 photo-op?

A recent article in the Military Times lays out the massive disaster of the US two-decade war on Afghanistan: more than two trillion dollars spent – much of it going to fund crooked practices in Afghanistan and here at home. And even worse, the Cost of War Project has estimated that a quarter of a million people have been killed in the war.

We do applaud President Biden’s decision to ignore the demands of all the neocons who have flocked to support his Administration, but as is most often the case, when it comes to Washington you have to really read the fine print when something sounds too good to be true. In this case, the fine print is that the US will not actually be leaving Afghanistan at all. As a recent article in The Grayzone points out, the Afghan war will continue with US special forces, CIA paramilitaries, and guns-for-hire taking the place of US soldiers. The war is not going to end, it’s just going to be “privatized.”

My philosophy has always been simple: we just marched in, so we can just march out. As we have learned recently, that is exactly what President Trump tried to do in the final days of his presidency, only to get cold feed after his military and national security “experts” told him it was a terrible idea. When the history of the Trump Administration is written, it will sadly be filled with stories of Trumps’ excellent instincts tossed aside by his inability to demand that those working for him follow his orders. It’s tragic.

We need to be completely out of Afghanistan. Yesterday.

Watch “Maxine Waters: Inciting Actual Insurrection?” on YouTube

Posted by M. C. on April 19, 2021

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was fond of accusing former President Trump of inciting insurrection with his speech on January 6th. However over the weekend Waters flew to Minneapolis and encouraged already violent street protesters to continue and even become “more confrontational” if a jury does not hand down a murder charge against police officer Derek Chauvin who is accused of causing the death of George Floyd last May. Is this incitement to violence and possibly insurrection?

Anti-gun activist nominated to head ATF.Seems fair to me. Like having a witch doctor head NIAID.

Posted by M. C. on April 19, 2021

https://www.foxnews.com/us/who-is-bidens-atf-nominee-david-chipman

By Stephanie Pagones | Fox News

President Biden is nominating David Chipman, a former federal agent and adviser at the gun control group Giffords, to be director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the commander-in-chief announced Thursday.

Chipman would replace ATF acting director Regina Lombardo. During his time as a senior policy adviser with Giffords, he spent considerable effort pushing for greater regulation and enforcement on ghost guns, changes to the background check system and measures to reduce the trafficking of illegal firearms.

Chipman spent 25 years as an agent at the ATF. During his career, he worked on stopping a trafficking ring that sent illegal firearms from Virginia to New York, and served on the ATF’s SWAT team.

Chipman is a gun owner, according to The Associated Press.

Dr Anthony Fauci is the Godfather of the ‘Gain of Function’ Research

Posted by M. C. on April 19, 2021

Many scientists have criticized gain of function research, which involves manipulating viruses in the lab to explore their potential for infecting humans, because it creates a risk of starting a pandemic from accidental release.

Gain-of-function research involves looking at enhancing the ability for the transmission of pathogens through artificial processes.

https://humansarefree.com/2021/04/anthony-fauci-gain-of-function-research.html

HAFHAF

Josh Rogin, a columnist of the Washington Post claims that scientists don’t speak up about issues connected to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s research.

Rogin also claims Fauci is the ‘Godfather’ of gain-of-function research that was taking place at the Wuhan laboratory which was then named as the site of the coronavirus outbreak.

dr anthony fauci is the godfather of the 'gain of function' research

Josh Rogin appeared on Megyn Kelly’s podcast, where he said – ‘I often talk to scientists who say the same thing, who say, “Listen, we really want to speak out about this, but we can’t do it.”

‘Why can’t we do it? Well, we get all of our funding from NIH, or NIAID, which is run by Dr. Fauci.” So we can’t say anything like ‘Oh, gain-of-function research might be dangerous, or it might have come from a lab, because we’re going to lose our careers, we’re going to lose our funding, we’re not going to be able to do the work.”

“People don’t want to think about the fact that our hero of the pandemic Dr. Fauci might also have been connected to this research which might also have been connected to the outbreak…”@JoshRogin on what we know so far. Listen, and download here: https://t.co/F96HgIpiAu pic.twitter.com/6EN4KuoWkY

Gain-of-function research involves looking at enhancing the ability for the transmission of pathogens through artificial processes.

Steve Hilton Report: Dr. Anthony Fauci Is Directly Responsible With Funding The Gain-Of-Function Studies That Resulted In Coronavirus Pandemic

As reported by GreatGameIndia earlier, American tax-dollars were used to fund controversial research in China at the Wuhan Institute of Virology on gain-of-function which is the ability of a virus to jump from animals to humans.

This cross-species jump was not natural and was achieved by the team lead by the Batwoman of China, Shi Zhengli. You can read more about it in detail in COVID19 Files – Scientific Investigation On Mysterious Origin Of Coronavirus.

Their research was funded by a ten-year, $200 million international program named PREDICT.

That program, in turn, was funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, along with other countries.

This project backed-up by Dr. Anthony Fauci diverted US funds to engineer Coronavirus at Wuhan lab via a company now under federal investigation.

That company is EcoHealth Alliance, headed by Peter Daszak.

The interesting part is that Peter Daszak is the same guy who orchestrated the publication of a ‘scientific’ paper in Lancet claiming that the virus made the cross-species jump naturally.

Peter Daszak is also the same guy the WHO sent to China to investigate the claims whether the virus evolved naturally or was coronavirus engineered.

‘The head of the funding, the head of the entire field, really, is Anthony Fauci,’ Rogin continued. ‘He’s the godfather of gain-of-function research as we know it.

That, what I said right there, is too hot for TV, because people don’t want to think about the fact that our hero of the pandemic… might also have been connected to this research, which might also have been connected to the outbreak.’

Rogin did not accuse Fauci of doing anything illegal. He did, however, believed that Fauci’s research may have played a hand in the COVID-19 pandemic.

‘People can’t get it through their heads, but that’s the reality,’ Rogin said on The Megyn Kelly Show.

‘We don’t have a media environment where we can have that kind of discussion.’

Robert Redfield, the ex-CDC Chief, believes that the COVID-19 pandemic began in a Wuhan lab. The first cases of COVID-19 were identified in Wuhan, but a definitive cause of the pandemic has never been given by officials.

Many scientists have criticized gain of function research, which involves manipulating viruses in the lab to explore their potential for infecting humans, because it creates a risk of starting a pandemic from accidental release.

Similar controversial research was also conducted by Dutch Virologist Ron Fouchier, a controversial figure in the field of Viroscience.

Ron Fouchier created world’s deadliest virus strain and his research sparked a global controversy to de-fund and shutdown such experiments.

Since these projects were shutdown in the west due to heavy criticism, they were exported to other countries like China and India.

China is conducting secret Frankenstein-style human-animal hybrid experiments creating super viruses, human-monkey hybrids, human head transplants on monkeys and pigs, gene-editing babies, super soldiers etc.

India had infact blacklisted CDC for secretly funding Bioweapons research in India illegally without permission.

CDC was caught funding Karnataka’s Manipal Center for Virus Research (MCVR) for secretly carrying out research on the lethal Nipah virus – a pathogen considered potential bioweapon.

The fact that an under-qualified private laboratory was secretly handling a dangerous virus under government’s nose at the behest of a foreign agency had raised major concerns within the health ministry apparatus.

The matter was more complicated with the fact that the CDC has a checkered history in India.

The Indian defense establishment believes that the CDC was involved in the plague outbreak in the western Indian city of Surat in 1994, which they consider to be a case of bioterrorism.

Earlier in February last year the Indian government launched an investigation into another secret research being conducted on bat hunters in the eastern Indian state of Nagaland, funded by the US Department of Defense in collaboration with Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Recently, even the Canadian parliament erupted over a heated debate regarding the cover-up of Chinese spies stealing coronavirus from the Winnipeg based BSL-4 lab to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.

The Chinese espionage story was first reported by GreatGameIndia in Jan, 2020, for which we are being actively targeted by the NATO’s war propaganda arm – the Atlantic Council.

Experts have raised concerns legally that such experiments could not only lead to a global pandemic but could also lead to bio-terrorism.

Bobcat attack in North Carolina demonstrates the value of a good American husband – American Thinker

Posted by M. C. on April 19, 2021

What it shows is Americana, as one of the tweeters noted.  Specifically, that’s courage, self-reliance, quick thinking, not panicking, not waiting for the state, the friendliness of the suburbs, home ownership, SUV rides, gun ownership, and above all, as writer Mollie Hemingway noted, the power of marriage and a good husband.  It’s everything that’s not “woke” in today’s culture.

I imagine you could find such valued people anywhere except maybe Berkley.

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2021/04/bobcat_attack_in_north_carolina_demonstrates_the_value_of_a_good_husband.html

By Monica Showalter

It’s a 46-second video that people can’t stop watching:

Is there anything in this video that’s not 100% #American? https://t.co/bItrytfN5k— Timothy Peterson (@nsquaredcrypto) April 16, 2021

A man in a placid, sylvan subdivision of suburbia, in this case Burgaw, North Carolina, population 3,872, near Wilmington, was saying “good morning” to a passing jogger, and carrying a car cup and a plastic disposable plate of brownies, probably for his workplace, over to his SUV.  He remarks to himself that he needs to wash his car as he begins to load it.  His name is Happy, his wife’s name is Kristi, she’s bringing out a cat-carrier with a cat in it for a trip to the vet, and they are the Wades, getting ready to be off for the day.

Way off in the distance, some sort of animal darts across the street toward him at high speed and gets under one of the driveway cars.

Suddenly, there’s an unearthly call-of-the-wild scream, and then the man’s wife screams, as some sort of creature claws and crawls up her back and seems to be after the cat, but clawing and biting her as it pursues.  She screams in pain and yells to her husband to get away. 

The man runs to her instead, not away, emerges, improbably holding the bobcat up like an auntie holding up a baby, and screams: “Oh my G*d, it’s a bobcat!  Oh my G*d,” as the beast thrashes.  He then flings the filthy thing about 15 feet across his yard, tossing it end over end like a rag doll, pulls out a gun, yells to the jogger, who runs back, either to gawk or help, and yells at her to “get back! get back! get back!” as the bobcat darts back under the car.  Then someone, apparently off camera, seems to question him again and he yells, “It’s a bobcat!  It attacked my wife!” and he would “shoot the f—–.” 

…which, it turns out, he does, before the sheriff comes after a neighbor calls 911 and finishes the job himself.

Leftists on Twitter and beyond screamed bloody murder — animal abuse, foolhardiness, etc. — because the man confronted and flung the bobcat instead of running and calling authorities, leaving his wife to fight it in the meantime.

They had little understanding of what an immediate threat the man faced, let alone the dangers it posed, or the merit of his quick actions.  They just wanted the bobcat, which is the equivalent of a small lion or tiger in its power and predatory killing instinct, to feel good.

Here’s how fast and hard they can strike:

[Bobcat trends on Twitter]

Me:

“I said NO PICTURES!” pic.twitter.com/bGFMnPsT6e— Natick (Please Do Not Yeet The) Bobcat (@NatickBobCat) April 16, 2021

But anyone watching it could see that this was a good husband, running toward danger, not from it, and protecting his wife from an obvious physical threat.

As news comes out about the disposition of things, it turns out the bobcat was indeed rabid, bit the man three times, bit the man’s wife a lot, too, and bit another neighbor earlier.  The creature was rabid, vicious, in pain, a hazard to the community, and had to be put down.  They underwent painful rabies shots because it clawed and bit them.

After the video drew two million viewers on Twitter (apparently TikTok’s pampered tech princes censored it as “violent”), he got interviewed on the local news and responded humbly:

“I’m not happy that this happened, we don’t take any pleasure that I shot the cat” Happy said. “I knew when I realized it was a bobcat, having been born and raised in Eastern North Carolina and hunting all my life, you know, that’s just not normal.”

It was later confirmed the Bobcat did have rabies.

“In my head, I knew it had already attacked two people. If it had attacked somebody else and I didn’t do something, morally it would have bothered me for a long time,” Happy said. “It was hurting my wife and I didn’t want it to.”

What it shows is Americana, as one of the tweeters noted.  Specifically, that’s courage, self-reliance, quick thinking, not panicking, not waiting for the state, the friendliness of the suburbs, home ownership, SUV rides, gun ownership, and above all, as writer Mollie Hemingway noted, the power of marriage and a good husband.  It’s everything that’s not “woke” in today’s culture.

You wouldn’t see a snowflake wokester doing any of this.

You want a guy like that around when nature strikes unexpectedly and gets out of control.

Give that man a medal.

One Man Stands in the Way of NATO’s Run Onward to Moscow | New Eastern Outlook

Posted by M. C. on April 19, 2021

This came into being the instant Joe Biden took the oath of office as president, and it’s only part of an overall strategy to engage Russia in a winner take all confrontation that many experts say, is long overdue. And the has taken unilateral aggressive steps toward the Donbass region and any pocket of the pro-Russia sentiment inside Ukraine.

A foreign military bloc of nations is inching closer to Moscow, Vladimir Putin reacts in kind, and somehow Russia is the aggressor. And learned Ph.D.’s scribble on, defying pure logic from Washington’s Think Tank Row. Here’s the latest sensational proof that the world will never, ever be at peace.

Dr. Mamuka Tsereteli and James Carafano have a new plan for defeating Russia for good. Now get this, in America, we have institutions like The Heritage Foundation that fund supposed research to perpetuate wars. No, really. The latest report of the foundation “Putin Threatens Ukraine—Here’s the Danger and What US, Allies Should Do About It” is a blueprint for continuing friction between west and east. Let’s examine the three takeaways Heritage Foundation puts forward.

According to Tsereteli and Carafano, Putin is about to attack Ukraine. These well-paid foreign policy geniuses say a military buildup inside Russian territory, which was in response to threats from Kyiv, proves beyond a doubt the dastardly Putin is about to overrun Russia’s neighbor. To quote the report, “Putin plans to use Russian forces in a full-blown military engagement with that country [Ukraine].” Well, let’s find out why Russia’s president alerted his military.

Didn’t I just read how Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba announced that his country’s National Security and Defense Council had approved a strategy aimed at retaking Crimea and reintegrating the strategically important peninsula? Yes, I am sure of it. Another Washington think tank has already outlined something called the Crimean Platform Initiative, another genius plan hatched in the bowels of CIA headquarters, to make Crimea an expensive proposition for Russia.

This came into being the instant Joe Biden took the oath of office as president, and it’s only part of an overall strategy to engage Russia in a winner take all confrontation that many experts say, is long overdue. And the has taken unilateral aggressive steps toward the Donbass region and any pocket of the pro-Russia sentiment inside Ukraine. A statement by Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Maria Zakharova on this issue bears repeating here:

“All efforts by Kyiv to reclaim Crimea are illegitimate and cannot be interpreted in any other way but a threat of aggression against two Russian [federal] subjects. We reiterate that we will consider the participation of any states or organizations in such activities, including the Crimean Platform initiative, as a hostile act against Russia and direct encroachment on its territorial integrity.”

Now that we’ve established who the aggressor is, let’s take a look at Tsereteli’s and Carafano’s next brilliant takeaway point. The dynamic duo of war strategies says cosmetic measures against Russia will not do! The “west” (meaning NATO), they say, needs a more clear strategy. Which certainly means a massive arms buildup west of the Siverskyi Donets River. The Zelensky government is being pushed from Washington to take even more drastic measures to force Russia into a war stance. The editorial board of the Washington Post recently advised Zelensky:

“Mr. Zelensky now has the opportunity to forge a partnership with Mr. Biden that could decisively advance Ukraine’s attempt to break free from Russia and join the democratic West. He should seize on it.”

So, now that we’ve shown who is doing the pushing here, let’s turn to the final takeaway from Heritage Foundation master strategists. Tsereteli and Carafano come right out and say “countries left outside of NATO will remain targets of Russian aggression and manipulations.” So, the purpose of all this supposed spread of militaristic-based democracy is to expand NATO to? I mean, seriously. Washington is not reaching out with the Peace Corps to shore up a budding Eastern European democracy. The United States is kidnapping another former Soviet republic on the way to the big score. My country has military bases in almost every country in the world, has had more wars than the Mongols, and spends more on weapons than everybody else combined – but Russia is being aggressive! Who believes this bullshit?

Let’s be real here. First, please understand who is doing the “thinking” there in Washington. Take James Carafano, the former Lt. Colonel who wrote speeches for the head of the U.S. Army Chief of Staff. Carafano teaches at West Point, what the hell else can he advise, of war with Russia does not come about? The man’s life is about justifying war. Then there’s Mamuka Tsereteli, who’s also the Founding Executive Director at the America-Georgia Business Council. America-Georgia business, hmm? I wonder if there is an America-Ukraine business council in the works soon? But, you can see where this new strategy from Heritage Foundation is headed, can’t you? Taking advice on foreign policy from these so-called experts is putting the foxes in charge of the hen house. Only they’re not as smart as foxes. They don’t need to be. The public is just that numbed and misinformed these days.

Is heavily involved in helping promote the EU’s Three Seas Initiative (3SI), which is an asymmetrical warfare economic platform to cut Russia off from the EU, and install the U.S. and central European powers in her place in East Europe. This report from Mamuka Tsereteli at Emerging Europe lays out the plan. To learn more about Tsereteli’s role, readers should research the so-called Frontier Europe Initiative, currently propagandizing for greater Georgia-Ukraine strategies against Russia. Make no mistake, the narrative and strategies these people are discussing are the precursors to including not only Ukraine in NATO but Georgia as well. Retired Air Force General Phillip Breedlove and former CENTCOM Commander General Joseph Votel are two of the “experts” helping to draft these strategies. And The Heritage Foundation stands center stage of the move for NATO to force Putin and Russia into an inescapable corner.

And there, is your true geopolitical Eurasia picture. The “west” will run on to Moscow, start World War III, and then blame Putin for the holocaust.
