Behold, brethren, for I bring you good news: The highly historically inaccurate steaming pile of crap that is the 1619 Project has pretty much failed, as New York Times Magazine quietly began to change certain aspects of the essays to gaslight us about its original intention.
You see, originally, the 1619 Project was intended to rewrite this country’s history, arguing that the country’s true founding was not upon the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776, but rather, upon the first slave ship arriving on Virginia’s coast line on August 20th, 1619.
The Project attempted to change the country’s founding to make it not about liberty, but its opposite: Slavery. That it was Africans’ slavery, not Colonists’ liberty, that marked the founding of this country.
The Project declared as much, as its online version’s original text read as follows: “The 1619 Project is a major initiative from The New York Times observing the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe the country’s history, understanding 1619 as our true founding, and placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative.”
“In August of 1619, a ship appeared on this horizon, near Point Comfort, a coastal port in the British colony of Virginia. It carried more than 20 enslaved Africans, who were sold to the colonialists. America was not yet America, but this was the moment it began. No aspect of the country that would be formed here has been untouched by the 250 years of slavery that followed.”
In essence, despite how utterly wrong and not factual this entire enterprise was, the New York Times and the 1619 Project aimed to shift the nation’s founding away from the liberty it was actually founded upon and towards the slavery that BRITISH AND EUROPEAN GLOBAL POWERS brought to the Colonies.
The Project argued many things, none of which were true, among which was the idea that the American Revolution started because the rebels wanted to keep their slaves, supposedly citing The Dunmore Proclamation, which as I have already written in a previous article regarding this pile of garbage of a project, is fundamentally incorrect. No revolutionary was fighting to keep slaves. They weren’t Democrats.
At any rate, like I said in that other article, the Project was nothing more than an attempt at bashing America and indoctrinating children into believing this country’s very foundation is ripe with sin and evil, when it is most definitely not.
But now, after months of historian after historian fact-checking the garbage essays, and after months of pushback for its many inaccuracies, both the creator of the Project and the NYT Magazine have backed off on the claim that 1619 is the nation’s literal founding, though still arguing that the events detailed in the essays are of as much significance to this country as 1776 was.
Now, the Project’s text has taken out any suggestion that 1619 is our “true” founding, editing that part where it said “understanding 1619 as our true founding” entirely out of it, with the text now reading: “It aims to reframe the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative.”
The part where it also said: “America was not yet America, but this was the moment it began,” was also edited out, with the text now reading: “It carried more than 20 enslaved Africans, who were sold to the colonists. No aspect of the country that would be formed…” etc. etc.
Even Nikole Hannah-Jones, creator of the 1619 Project, has stopped claiming that 1619 was this country’s “true” founding and instead has opted to simply argue that while it’s not this country’s founding, it was still a very significant year. But more than that, instead of simply saying that 1776 is our true founding, not 1619, she is gaslighting people by saying that SHE NEVER CLAIMED 1619 TO BE OUR “TRUE” FOUNDING, WHICH IS UTTERLY UNTRUE.
Not just in the Project’s text itself would you find that to be untrue, but also in Hannah-Jones’ own words. Back when the Project had first been launched, Hannah-Jones specifically said: “I argue that 1619 is our true founding… Also, look at the banner pic in my profile.”
Here is her banner pic:
As you can see, it shows the date “July 4, 1776” being crossed out and “August 20, 1619” in a bigger font size and not crossed out.
She has made every argument she could that 1776 was not our true founding and now, she is lying about what she lied about months ago.
Now, Hannah-Jones argues that “The wording in question never appeared in the 1619 Project text. It appears nowhere in the printed copy… It didn’t appear in my essay nor any of the actual journalism we produced.”
Funny that she would bring up the printed copy, considering that it’s not something that The NYT Magazine can revise and change. Let’s read what it says, shall we?
“It is not a year that most Americans know as a notable date in our country’s history. Those who do are at most a tiny fraction of those who can tell you that 1776 is the year of our nation’s birth. What if, however, we were to tell you that this fact, which is taught in our schools and unanimously celebrated every Fourth of July, is wrong, and that the country’s true birth date, the moment that its defining contradictions first came into the world, was in late August of 1619?... It is the country’s very origin.”
The printed copy itself proves this idiotic woman wrong. The 1619 Project was meant, as I have previously stated, to bash this country and indoctrinate children and people in general into accepting a historically erroneous belief that this country’s founding was not set upon the Founding Fathers’ fight for freedom but upon the arrival of 20 to 30 African slaves on a ship.
It was meant to discredit and delegitimize the very founding of this country and to lead people to the desire to “start anew”, creating a new country in which Leftist, communist ideals would serve as the foundation. It was meant to start a hijacking of this country by the Left.
For those purposes, it clearly has failed. The NYT Magazine would not be editing things and Hannah-Jones would not be gaslighting people about what she said, and has previously proclaimed, if they believed the Project was anywhere close to successful.
This, of course, doesn’t mean that the Left will cease trying to delegitimize the country or argue that the country was founded on racist beliefs. It just means that there is still enough common sense and sanity in this country for a radical Leftist hit-piece aimed at the very founding of this country to sputter and fail.
The Left will still be teaching kids that this country was founded on racism and other crap like that, which is why it’s imperative to pass education reform with patriotic (or, at least, REAL) education.
But we can be happy that, at least for this instance, the Left’s attempt to hijack the very meaning and date of our nation’s founding was so beaten back as to leave people at the New York Times licking their wounds and pretending they didn’t do what they very clearly did.
Now, they will claim the 1619 Project to be not a historical rewriting of our nation but an “origin story” as though this country itself were a work of fiction.
No, deceiving liars, 1619 isn’t an “origin story.” Bruce Wayne witnessing the murder of his parents in a dark alley in Gotham is an origin story. Superman coming from a doomed planet and landing on Earth as a baby is an origin story. They are origin stories because, as the name suggests, they tell the origins of those characters. The arrival of slaves on a ship on the colonies does not mark the origin of this nation. If anything, the settlers arriving and settling in America in 1607 is more of an origin story.
Slavery is not a part of the origin of this nation, because this very nation’s founding is predicated on the liberty of people, who are created equal by God. And as I have said in the past, slavery was a dying practice (helped by the fact that this country banned slave ships from coming in in its early years) that would naturally have gone away had it not been for the invention of the cotton gin, which brought slavery back in droves.
At any rate, the 1619 Project is basically dead. It has failed, even if the people behind it cover their ears and shut their eyes, yelling that “it’s not true! It’s not true!”
The 1619 Project has failed. Hallelujah.

To the Left, lying is as natural as breathing. They are pathological liars and often times cannot help but lie in order to save their own behinds. They will lie about big things and small things. They will lie about everything so long as they get their way. Regarding the virus alone, they have already lied about the death numbers in a number of ways, from counting gunshot wounds as COVID deaths to lying about the total number of deaths, with the real number being around 6% of the reported death toll (roughly 10,000).
They are little dictators and this much has been shown for the past few months in particular. However, in Nashville, Tennessee, the mayor of that city is in deep trouble because of the possibility that the city knew, for some time, that bars and restaurants hardly contribute to Chinese coronavirus cases, but they maintained the tyrannical shutdown orders and even intended to keep such knowledge away from the public.
According to The Daily Wire: “A Nashville city council member is accusing Nashville Democrat Mayor John Cooper’s office of concealing low coronavirus outbreak numbers tied to restaurants and bars in the area, claiming that they are ‘fabricating information.’”
Fox 17 News also reported on Wednesday: “The coronavirus cases on lower Broadway may have been so low that the mayor’s office and the metro health department decided to keep it secret.”
The way in which this has been found out is through a series of emails between a senior advisor to the mayor and a health department official. Fox 17 reported: “The discussion involves the low number of coronavirus cases emerging from bars and restaurants and how to handle that and most disturbingly how to keep it from the public. On June 30th, contact tracing was giving a small view of coronavirus clusters. Construction and nursing homes were found to be causing problems with more than a thousand cases traced to each category, but bars and restaurants reported just 22 cases.”
In an email, health department official Leslie Waller asked senior advisor Benjamin Eagles: “This isn’t going to be publicly released, right? Just info for Mayor’s Office?”
Eagle responded with: “Correct, not for public consumption.”
One month after the fact, Tennessean reporter Nate Rau asked the following question to the health department in an email: “The figure you gave of ‘more than 80’ does lead to a natural question: If there have been over 20,000 positive cases of COVID-19 in Davidson and only 80 or so are traced to restaurants and bars, doesn’t that mean restaurants and bars aren’t a big problem?”
Health department official Brian Todd reportedly forwarded the email to five other officials asking how to answer the question. One official responded: “My two cents: We have certainly refused to give counts per bar because those numbers are low per site… We could still release the total though, and then a response to the over 80 could be ‘because that number is increasing all the time and we don’t want to say a specific number.’”
Isn’t this just rich? Seemingly, bars and restaurants reported just 22 cases of the Chinese coronavirus in that particular area of Nashville, but instead of being truthful and showing the right numbers, the local government decided to inflate the numbers a bit (though that “80 cases” is still extremely low and would naturally lead to the kind of question that Rau asked because there would still be no reason to shut down those businesses with those numbers) and lie to everyone about the true number of cases and how little risk there seemingly is from going to bars and restaurants.
What benefit is there to lying to people and shutting down those types of businesses when there is seemingly such a low risk? And don’t tell me: “Well, they said that the numbers were increasing all the time and things could be getting worse, so that’s why they did it.” Really? They prioritized an area that yielded low cases over areas where there was more risk? That would be like sitting in a car in front of a minefield, looking at alternative paths, finding one that is fairly rocky, and deciding that the rocky road is anywhere close to as dangerous as the minefield.
That is, of course, if we assume these people to be acting in good faith, which I do not trust that they are. The Left loves dictatorships and will attempt to become one at every given chance. This was proven by Cuomo, Newsom, Whitler, and now, by the government in Nashville.
They didn’t shut down the businesses because they yielded a lot of Chinese coronavirus cases or because they were at great risk of doing so. And even if they did it for these reasons at one point, the data came back that it was largely safe to open them back up, and still chose not to do it and chose to keep this a secret from the public.
They shut the whole thing down because THEY COULD. More importantly, because they know that a heavily-dampened economy would be bad news for Trump come November. With a rebounding economy, Trump’s chances of reelection also rebound. The Left doesn’t want that to happen, so certain sacrifices (yours) must be made. Your business must be shut down, unless a local government official with a “D” next to their name wants to use your services. You must risk being furloughed or your job being lost entirely or your business shutting down permanently (60% of them so far will) for the benefit of the Communist, I mean, Democrat Party.
And the people cannot be made aware of this because that would, obviously, cause an uproar in the local area, which they would rather avoid. The Left in Nashville would rather quietly put a pillow over the head of small businesses and suffocate them quietly, rather than let people know how much of a monumental failure (at best) they are.
Now, you could be thinking: “Well, how do we know if these emails are legit? They could have been faked by some right-winger trying to get Democrats in trouble.” Fair question. They could be fake. But they have been verified as real by a city council member.
City Councilmember Steve Glover reportedly asked a government attorney to verify if the emails were real and the attorney responded: “I was able to get verification from the Mayor’s Office and the Department of Health that these emails are real.”
Glover, upon discovering this, accused the Mayor’s Office and the Department of Health of “fabricating information. They’ve blown their entire credibility. It’s gone, I don’t trust a thing they say going forward… nothing.”
He added: “We raised taxes 34 percent and put hundreds, literally thousands of people out of work that are now worried about losing their homes, their apartments, etc., and we did it on bogus data. That should be illegal!”
Fox 17 News concluded in their report: “Again, we weren’t told by the mayor’s office this wasn’t true. We were told to file a Freedom of Information Act request. Which allows us now to ask the question: why are you keeping this from us? Why would you even want to? It’s just the real numbers and what could possibly be an honorable motive?”
Any government official who acts in good faith would want to let the public know whether some activity would be safe, particularly if it helps alleviate some economic stress and allows jobs to return and businesses to open. If the data says that something is relatively safe, a good faith government official will act accordingly and allow it. At the very least, he would tell the people this bit of good news in a time when there seems to hardly be any.
What conclusion, then, can we draw from the fact that the government officials in Nashville did not tell anyone this, did not deliver those numbers, that data, or the good news, and did not act according to the data presented, opening things back up? Naturally, the conclusion reached is that these are not government workers acting in good faith. They are not public officials who are interested in serving the public.
These are mini-dictators, holding on to whatever power they can keep for however long they can keep it. Seemingly, the idea is that if Biden wins, “the virus will just go away.” This could mean easing (some) restrictions, but no communist ever gives up power so easily. They have it. They will keep it until they no longer can.
They look upon China, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela with both adoration and envy, wishing they could wield the power those in government in those countries can. That is as close to absolute power as people can reach and these American dictators want as much of that kind of power as they can get, U.S. Constitution and civil liberties and rights be damned.
The worst part is that they deceive themselves into believing they are doing something “for the greater good”. They believe themselves to be the good guys when they suffocate small businesses into permanently closing. “There is a dangerous virus out there!” they repeat to themselves to justify the injustices they commit against the people that elected them.
This is why it’s so important to kick Democrats and Leftists out of whatever office they hold. I don’t think there has ever been another time in American history when the Left has more deserved to be utterly defeated and humiliated, to the point where they would be thrown into the ash heap of history. And I’m not just talking about their response to the virus. I’m talking about their hatred for the very institutions which keep us safe and free. I’m talking about the corruption they have shown in the past decade alone, trying to undermine and sabotage an administration they vehemently disagree with. I’m talking about their promotion of ABSOLUTE FILTH in the form of a film that is borderline child pornography.
The modern Left is so comically perverse you would think they came straight out of a fiction book where the bad guys are clearly evil and there is no depth to their character. They have demonstrated, time and time again, how utterly unfit, AT BEST, they are to run a lemonade stand, let alone an entire world superpower.
If it weren’t for the Left’s clear attempts at cheating this election, I honestly would not be surprised if Trump ended up winning all 50 states, the Left is that detestable and hated.
I do hope, however, that whatever cheating they try to pull off will so backfire as to make the 1984 election appear to be a fairly close contest.
God knows the Left deserves such a catastrophic fate.

Around three months ago, I wrote an article about how the State of Washington was knowingly counting gun shot wounds as Chinese coronavirus deaths, as well as many other things that should not be counted as COVID deaths being counted as COVID deaths.
In that article, I expressed how utterly angered I was at Dr. Birx saying in one of the press briefings that the CDC was counting deaths “with” the virus the same as deaths “from” the virus, even though there is a very clear difference and doing this makes little to no sense whatsoever.
Lo and behold, I was right in my assessment, because the CDC has recently announced that only 6% of the deaths associated to the COVID-19 death toll were strictly from the virus. That is to say, for only 6% of the deaths in the total, the virus was the only cause mentioned.
“For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.”
This means that, according to the CDC, less than TEN THOUSAND people in the U.S. have died directly to the virus. 94% of the deaths came from people who had the virus but had other pre-existing conditions or co-morbidities that the virus likely just contributed to making matters worse.
This, for all intents and purposes, would be like having a group of students doing a project, but the popular kid in the group, even if he does the least amount of work, gets ALL the credit for the project. The Chinese coronavirus is the “popular” disease out there right now (in as far as it is well-known and there are some people who stand to gain from hearing worse and worse news relating to it) and even if it is a minimally-contributing factor to the death of someone who had respiratory or immune-system problems, it gets all the blame for the death of a person.
Now, like I pointed out in the aforementioned previous article, one can argue that we count AIDS deaths by people who died with it but, say, got sick with something else and died. And like I also pointed out in that article, this is fine when people are truthful.
The big problem is that doctors are not being truthful about the virus. People are attributing COVID deaths to things that should not be COVID, like gun shot wounds. And even when it comes to general other diseases, there is enough of a difference between the Chinese coronavirus and AIDS for the two to not be counted similarly. AIDS specifically targets the immune system and causes a deficiency in its ability to fight off infections (also, it’s an STD, not an airborne disease). It’s essentially the battering ram of diseases, which breaks down one’s defenses and allows for other things to get in with impunity.
The Chinese coronavirus is a respiratory disease much like the flu. So it would make far more sense to count COVID deaths more similarly to flu deaths as opposed to AIDS deaths. People die with AIDS; people die TO the flu. Similarly, people have died TO the Chinese coronavirus directly.
And the number of people who have died TO the Chinese virus are roughly 10,000. Still bad, but nowhere close to the 180,000 that we often hear from the fake news media in trying to blame it all on Trump. Now, those people are still dead, of course, but 94% of them had co-morbidities and in general other issues that COVID might have exacerbated (or maybe not, considering we have seen gunshot wounds be counted towards the death toll in a single state, so who’s to say this hasn’t happened far more often throughout the country?)
What’s more, as I shared in that quote, out of the 94% who died with COVID and another underlying issue, on average, “there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death”. So 94% of those who died with COVID but not directly from it also had at least TWO other health issues.
Here are the top underlying medical issues linked with Chinese virus deaths:
And other medical conditions as well, according to NBC News. People often had at least TWO other medical issues, any of the ones listed above or something else, as well as the Chinese virus. This goes in line with the survivability rate for the virus being around 99.9%. IT IS DIFFICULT TO DIE TO THIS VIRUS, PERHAPS EVEN MORE-SO THAN THE SEASONAL FLU.
That less than 10,000 people have died from COVID-19 is particularly bad, in relation to everything we did as a result of the virus, considering that, according to Health.com, the average flu season claims tens of thousands of lives and that the CDC estimates between 29,000 and 59,000 people died from influenza illnesses THIS YEAR.
And yet, no one’s panicking about that, despite it being a considerably bigger number, even on the low-end, to the total COVID-19 deaths from those who died to the virus. We upended our entire society for a virus that is less deadly than the flu.
At the time, this wasn’t known, of course. Hindsight is 20/20, for certain. However, at no point did the lockdown measures actually make sense, particularly to the extent that they were applied, and we saw the results of that insanity, both economically and in terms of physical well-being.
So, then, how can anyone argue in favor of not fully, or at least almost fully (because this virus is still clearly deadly for those who have medical issues and those who are of a more mature age), or even in favor of locking things down again?
A rhetorical question, of course, considering health facts are not what is driving people’s and politicians’ actions. Many Americans are gripped with fear to the point where a majority believe a MASK MANDATE would be perfectly acceptable. Many politicians also have to do certain things, not because they are good for the health and safety of their citizens and residents (and often times, they are not good for that) but because there is a certain narrative surrounding the virus and deviation from that narrative, driven by the Left and the media, will make someone appear like they are intentionally killing people’s grandmas (even as Cuomo practically did that and yet he is hailed as a hero of the age).
At this point, it is more imperative to fight against the narrative surrounding the virus rather than the virus itself. We can see that the virus is not as deadly as we once thought it was, not even close. It still is for the elderly and for those with underlying conditions, of course, and certain measures must be taken to try and limit the damage to such people. But everyone is acting like the Chinese virus is a death sentence when there are FAR deadlier viruses out there including the common cold. Everyone is acting like someone not wearing a mask it basically committing murder in broad daylight (even as we ignore or justify actual murder by BLM and ANTIFA terrorists).
Everyone is acting like going to a bar or a restaurant or CHURCH at anywhere over 50% capacity would lead to the black death.
The narrative surrounding the virus is deadlier than the virus itself.
Here’s hoping that people regain their senses and start fighting for their freedoms once again, wherever that issue applies.

It’s late June of an election year, so it’s no surprise at all to see multiple Left-wing polls claiming that Trump is toast; that he’s going to lose and lose badly; that he is headed for a crushing defeat; that the walls are closing in and the American people are tired of Donald Trump. It’s the exact same song and dance we heard throughout 2016. Remind me, what was the result of that election?
Perhaps the only difference between 2016 and 2020 is that the media has fooled some Trump supporters into believing he is on the path to defeat. However, I highly doubt that’s the case at all for a number of reasons.
First of all, we were hearing this same bullcrap from the same people four years ago. Eddie Zipperer has a great thread on Twitter with numerous articles from 2016 that showed Hillary Clinton with 85-99% chance at winning, multiple electoral map results that showed she would win at minimum 300 electoral votes, and just article after article from the fake news media saying that Donald Trump had no chance in hell of becoming President of the United States. Four years later, they’re trying to tell us that the guy whom they said had no chance of winning but still won once again has no chance of winning.
Reuters had Clinton’s chances of getting elected at 90%. The Monday before the election, CNN had Clinton’s chances of winning at over 90%. MSNBC had a “scientist” predict that Clinton had a 99% chance of being elected. Stanford University said the same.
The Huffington Post predicted that Clinton would win 323 electoral votes, with Princeton predicting the same. Joy Reid predicted Clinton winning 340. Moody’s Analytics predicted Clinton would win 332 electoral votes. FiveThirtyEight had Clinton winning as few as 375 electoral votes and as many as 471.
Day in and day out, for months on end until even election day itself, these “journalists” were all of the belief that Hillary Clinton was practically DESTINED to become President of the United States.
And what do we see today? Fox News having Biden winning Florida by 9 percentage points, Georgia by 2, North Carolina by 2 and TEXAS by 1. Redfield & Wilton saying Biden is winning in Pennsylvania by 10 points, Michigan by 11, North Carolina by 6, Florida by 4 and Arizona by 4. CNBC saying that Biden is 9 points ahead nationally. Reuters saying that Biden is ahead 10 points nationally. The Economist/YouGov saying Biden is winning by 8 points nationally. NYT/Sienna showing Biden winning 14% nationally. Fox News showing Biden winning 12% nationally. Quinnipiac showing Biden winning 8% nationally, etc., etc.
It’s the exact same song and dance and roughly the same numbers we were seeing back in 2016. And you’re telling me that this time it’s somehow different?
Let me tell you what is actually different this time around that will affect the election: Trump has a record now.
Back in 2016, he ran on policy but could hardly back it up with things from his past because he ran a real estate empire and was a reality tv star. People trusted him with the economy (still do in most polls, and that is always the biggest issue) because of his experience but had to just trust his word for the rest of the job as POTUS and he delivered. He delivered on the economy, that’s for sure. He delivered on being the most pro-life president. He delivered on his stance against illegal immigration (not that he got any help from the GOP) and despite the troubles we face today, I trust that he can still take care of it all (there are hundreds of DOJ investigations into the people tearing down statues, so don’t tell me he isn’t being a law and order president).
Like I said towards the beginning of the pandemic: the virus cannot be blamed on Trump, and neither can the actions of other people. The virus itself came from China because they are dirty liars opportunistically setting the world on fire. The lockdown orders came from the governors individually, and not even all the states decided to lock things down. The economy is not doing great right now, but it was for three years under Trump and he will do it again, provided we open back up in full (and we have to at one point or another).
As far as the cases go, that has more to do with increased testing than the virus being out of control. And considering the CDC chief said that Chinese coronavirus cases could be ten times higher than confirmed cases, that only means that the mortality rate is a tenth of what it is today: 0.26%, so if the chief is right, the mortality rate should actually be 0.026%, which is considerably lower than the flu.
In other words, we have absolutely no reason at all to be shutting things down or keeping things shut down. Once people begin realizing this, the economy will make a great comeback and that will definitely boost Trump’s chances at re-election.
While the last few months haven’t exactly been great for Trump (and 2020 has really been a huge mess for basically everyone), I’m not at all convinced that Trump is headed for an electoral defeat, especially considering who his opponent is.
Granted, Biden is really helped by the fact that he is being kept hidden in the basement for the most part, but at one point or another, he will have to debate Donald Trump and will actually have to make public appearances more often. That is something he nor the Democrats can allow to happen which is part of the reason they are so adamant about going back to the virus as a main talking point (and because covering wanton destruction of property and violence coming from Leftists won’t exactly help convince voters to vote for Leftist Democrats).
Of course, the biggest threat to Donald Trump right now isn’t Joe Biden but voter fraud in the form of mail-in ballots, which the Left is all too happy about implementing for this election considering how absurdly easy it would be for them to cheat through this system. But otherwise, I don’t see how Biden beats Trump (which isn’t to say that he couldn’t and this is no license for people not to vote for Trump).
Now, one last thing I want to talk about actually has something to do with what Zipperer said at the end of his Twitter thread regarding all of the fake polls about Clinton. Zipperer said: “These are all the same ‘experts’ now making all the same predictions because their predictions aren’t about being right; their predictions are about gaslighting you out of voting.”
And he definitely is right. These polls aren’t meant to be accurate. They are meant to make you feel demoralized, like you are headed for crushing defeat, and that there is no real point in going out to vote because defeat is assured. They are meant to keep you from voting by making you feel there would be no point in spending hours at the polling booth if your guy is just going to lose anyway. The ironic thing about this is that I believe this is a double-edged sword. It might get some people demoralized and believe there is no point in voting for Trump, but it also leaves some Democrats overconfident and believe victory is assured so there is no point in spending those same hours at the polling booth if their guy is going to win anyway.
We just have to make sure that our side does not get demoralized by what the fake news media is claiming is the reality at hand, when that’s not at all the case. What reason does any one of us have to believe the same fake news polls from the same fake news sources that have for the past four years tried to insist to us that Trump had no chance at getting nominated, elected, cheated to get elected, was planning on cheating to get re-elected through either Russia, Ukraine or China, and now has no chance at getting re-elected?
Why would anyone believe the words of known liars and biased, agenda-driven deceivers?

If the riots following the death of George Floyd were the end of the gun control debate, the way the scientific community covered the Chinese coronavirus should end the climate change debate, as these people have shown themselves to be borderline complete clowns at every level who either do not know what they are doing or have a very clear agenda (or both).
They aren’t helped by the fact that so many doctors who previously objected to protests demanding the easing of restrictions later went on to SUPPORT protests against racism and police brutality following the death of George Floyd, thus showing themselves to be Leftist hypocrites.
But for this article, we won’t really be covering how Americans view the scientific community in the U.S. or at large, but rather, how the people of France view the scientific community following a number of inconsistencies in reporting of the Chinese coronavirus that have raised some questions about the validity of their work.
Reporting on a survey made by the Center for Political Research (CEVIPOF) at Sciences Po, UK-based Times Higher Education said that over a third of people in France now believe that the scientific community is hiding information, largely as a result of contradictory messages regarding the use of face masks and overall confusion relating to how beneficial treatments like hydroxychloroquine are towards treating the virus.
Back in mid-March, according to Breitbart News: “84 percent of the French public expressed confidence in scientists, whereas the latest data from late May shows this level of trust has dropped by ten points to 74 percent.”
36% of surveyors also expressed they believe scientists to be hiding information about the virus from the public. Dr. Sylvain Brouard, research director of the National Political Science Foundation at Sciences Po, noted “there’s a significant decline in confidence.” He also noted that two particular controversies have thus far contributed to the decline in French public trust in the scientific community.
The first one is the scientific community’s stance on wearing face masks to keep the virus from spreading. Initially, the government claimed that there “was no scientific evidence favoring the use of masks,” according to Breitbart. Despite this initial claim that masks made no real difference, the government’s stance on the subject matter changed completely to outright MANDATING that people wear masks when using public transportation, a change Brouard noted as being “a complete reversal of policy.”
The second of these controversies has to do with hydroxychloroquine being used to treat the virus. Professor Didier Raoult is the director of the Mediterranean Infection Foundation in Marseilles and the author of a study about the benefits of the anti-malaria drug in treating the Chinese coronavirus. While France’s top public health official ordered to halt the use of hydroxychloroquine back in late May, Raoult has continued to back the efficacy of the drug.
This confusion got worse when it was discovered that a major study conducted to quash the idea that hydroxychloroquine was a viable option for treating the virus was actually entirely hogwash as the company that made the study was comprised of only a few people, only one of which is a doctor and the other people include a science fiction writer and a porn star doubling as a sales director. I am NOT making that up.
That particular study was the basis for the fake news media in the U.S. to attack Trump over his touting of the drug (once again, I feel compelled to remind everyone that Andrew “Grandma Killer” Cuomo also touted the drug but the media only focused on Trump) and likely was the reason for France to stop its use of the drug.
As it stands, the French public has more trust in Professor Raoult than it does in the government’s public health minister. Dr. Brouard noted that the people see “one prominent medical professor saying he has a good answer to the disease and the government doesn’t want to use it.”
Funny enough, this all came before the WHO announced that the Chinese coronavirus was very rarely being spread by asymptomatic carriers.
“From the data we have, it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual… It’s very rare,” said Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, the head of the WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit.
Do you remember why it was that we shut down virtually everything like we did? Because we didn’t want to risk catching the disease, not knowing about it/not showing any symptoms, and then transmitting the disease to a loved one who might be at high risk of infection and death, such as grandma or grandpa or even just our parents in general (for us who are younger but not that young).
We were afraid that if we went out there to work or do whatever, we would catch the disease and not know that we had it because we didn’t show any symptoms and subsequently unwittingly endangering our loved ones. And now, roughly four months after we first shut down everything out of this particular fear, we are told that it is extremely rare for such a thing to happen.
Not only that, the WHO fact sheet outright states: “to date, there has been no documented asymptomatic transmission.” So not only is it “very rare” for it to happen, but the WHO doesn’t even have any DOCUMENTED CASES of this happening! So you have to wonder why they are even saying that it is “very rare” for it to happen. Maybe they are just trying to account for the possibility of it happening, even if it so far hasn’t (which, the fact that there are no cases of this happening, is simply outrageous considering how long it’s been since we first began to act on the virus and all of the doom and gloom stories that we were told about the virus, and we largely had no cause for concern in the end), but I’m not entirely sure about that.
You would think that doctors and experts would LEAD with the fact that there are no documented cases of this happening, as that is empirical evidence, as opposed to what they THINK could possibly happen. Ideally, they would have said “there is, at present, no documented cases of asymptomatic carriers transmitting the virus to another person, though that has the potential to change.” This both alleviates people’s fears, knowing it hasn’t happened, and gives room for caution, noting that just because it hasn’t happened before, it doesn’t mean that it can never happen.
But they instead chose to frame it as “it’s very rare”, even though their own findings do not reflect that rhetoric. It’s not simply “very rare”. It’s outright undocumented. It hasn’t happened, at least officially. Not to say it can’t, but to say that it’s “very rare” does not reflect the presently understood facts.
Overall, the people of France have good reason to be so skeptical of the scientific community. It very well could be that they are hiding things from the public for one reason or another (likely for a Left-wing agenda). I’m not one to peddle conspiracy theories, but it’s not like there isn’t some merit to this idea. They have hidden things from us, as is clearly evident, so it’s not like they are above deceit.
And who knows where this will all lead? Maybe this could be the catalyst for public distrust in the nonsensical climate scientists that claim we are killing the planet.
I don’t know what this will lead to in the future, but I do know that the public gives far too much credence to “experts” that routinely show they have no idea what they are doing. I mean, I recently talked about how economic “experts” believed the economy would shed 8 million jobs in May but we actually created over 2 million! So it’s not like “experts” of any particular field have a perfect track-record, and most often, we find that they have an agenda that just-so-happens to coincide with the Left’s.
Leftism corrupts everything it touches. Here’s hoping we beat it back significantly and that people recognize that these eggheads often times speak gibberish and pat themselves on the back for it.

For the past few articles, I have largely tried to steer clear of any conversation or topic that had to do with the Chinese coronavirus, or Wuhan virus as I usually call it, because the media is flooded by such stories and I wanted to give people some respite from the constant bombardment of doom and gloom that we saw in the media (not to say the situation isn’t serious, but shutting down the economy for months is not a viable solution).
However, this article will largely cover how the fake news media has handled a particular portion of this crisis. Namely, a story surrounding an Arizona couple who ingested fish tank cleaner because one of its ingredients was chloroquine, a substance similar to the drug the President and NY Governor Andrew Cuomo have touted as a potential option in treating and curing the Wuhan virus, and the fake news media is choosing to blame Trump for the couple’s sheer lack of common sense.
From Axios: “A man has died after ingesting chloroquine phosphate – one of the anti-malaria drugs that Trump has mentioned in recent days.” That is very obviously fake news, as the couple did not ingest chloroquine phosphate, the prescription drug, but fish tank cleaner, which is not a drug but contains chloroquine – not chloroquine phosphate.
Heidi Przybyla from NBC News ran with the story anyway, fully blaming Trump and supposedly quoting the woman: “Her husband is dead & she’s in the ICU after ingesting chloroquine: ‘We saw Trump on TV – every channel - & all of his buddies and that this was safe,’ she said. ‘Trump kept saying it was basically pretty much a cure.’”
There are a number of problems with this. First of all, THE COUPLE DIDN’T EVEN HAVE THE WUHAN VIRUS! Heidi pretty much admitted that in a follow-up tweet (which unsurprisingly garnered far less likes and retweets), saying that the couple “feared contracting coronavirus.”
Later on, Heidi “quotes” the woman: “Oh my God. Don’t take anything. Don’t believe anything. Don’t believe anything that the President says and his people because they don’t know what they’re talking about. And don’t take anything – be so careful and call your doctor. This is a heart ache I’ll never get over.”
Not sure where she got the quote from, but it’s awfully opportunistic for a fake news media who hates the President and would be satisfied with people dying if they are scared of taking the drug Trump (and Cuomo, but they forget about him) touted as a possible cure to the virus. Again, the couple didn’t have the Wuhan virus and THEY TOOK FISH TANK CLEANER!
And yet, these idiots went along with the story because it made Trump look bad. It took eight tweets for Heidi to bury the lead, writing: “The toxic ingredient they consumed was not the medication form of chloroquine, used to treat malaria in humans. Instead, it was an ingredient listed on a parasite treatment for fish.”
Not that that stopped Leftist hacks from piling on and blaming Trump as well, as though it’s his fault that a couple of ignoramuses who did not have the virus ingested fish tank cleaner without consulting with a doctor.
Seriously, that they would choose to run with this just goes to show the level of Trump Derangement Syndrome these fools have.
Here are the facts:
2. They did not ingest the prescription medication, hydroxychloroquine, usually taken in combination with azithromycin, the other drug Trump touted. They ingested chloroquine and whatever else is in the substance used to clean fish tanks. That is FAR different from the prescription drug.
3. The couple “self-medicated” meaning they did not go to a doctor… because they would’ve been called idiots for thinking they should ingest fish tank cleaner.
4. NY Governor Andrew Cuomo also touted hydroxychloroquine apart from the POTUS. And yet, Trump is the only one blamed here. Not to say that Cuomo should be blamed as he neither suggested people self-medicate (neither did Trump), nor told people to just ingest anything that has chloroquine in it. But Cuomo and Trump both touted the exact same drug, and yet, the story only focuses on Trump. Even the quote, which I doubt is real as it sounds too good for the Left to be real, only talks about how Trump and his people touted chloroquine (which they didn’t), conveniently leaving out Cuomo who did the same thing as Trump.
Eventually, Axios was forced to correct their story (obviously without an apology for outright blaming Trump for the death of an American), writing: “We have deleted this tweet and corrected our story because it did not reflect the full nature of the self-medication done with an additive commonly used to clean fish tanks.”
We know for certain that, if people, namely Trump supporters, hadn’t raised the glaring problems in the story, no correction would’ve been issued and the fake news media would’ve sat comfortably blaming Trump for the death of the guy and the hospitalization of his wife.
It’s obscene what the fake news media would be willing to do to attempt to damage Trump. This, among MANY other reasons, is why they are the enemy of the people.
Hydroxychloroquine has the potential to help Americans with the virus. But the media has been trying to nuke that since Trump brought it up. Not too long ago, the fake news media said that ingesting 3 grams of it would be fatal. OF COURSE IT WOULD BE FATAL, THAT’S FAR MORE THAN THE RECOMMENDED AMOUNT!
Drinking too much water can be fatal too. Eating too much food can be fatal. You have to ingest the RECOMMENDED AMOUNT of a drug, not THREE FULL GRAMS OF IT!
And now, we have a story that is very sketchily put together about a man who died because of his own foolishness and a woman who might be trying to blame Trump for her own foolishness as well.
We don’t even know if the actual drug will be successful but the media wants doom and gloom. Last week, a reporter from NBC News (funny how that works out) said that Trump was giving Americans “false hope” by touting the drug, when he said it was POTENTIALLY a solution, not a promised one, and it’s not “false hope”, but real hope that may or may not work out depending on how things go.
The fake news media wants FAR more people to die so that they can blame Trump. If the drug is useful in fighting the virus, that is only TERRIBLE news for a bloodthirsty mainstream media who see the virus and its crisis as an opportunity to destroy the man whom they have failed time and time again to destroy. And if it is useful, they want to say that it could kill people so that low-information Americans will be too scared to take it and subsequently potentially die as a result, which, of course, is what these devils want.
As these bastards get more and more desperate, they show more of their true colors. They WANT people to die if that’s what it takes to defeat Trump. They WANT people to be uninformed, so they are discussing no longer covering the press conferences that help inform people because they also help Trump’s ratings. A majority of people approve of his handling of the virus. The media can’t have that, so they are discussing not covering the press conferences.
Defeating Donald Trump is their one and only goal. If it takes people being uninformed, or misinformed, and DIE, then so be it. If it takes people going BANKRUPT due to Democrats backing out of an already bipartisan deal so they can jam in GND garbage (what happened to “country over party”? Or does that only apply to Republicans seeking to betray the nation?), then so be it.
These people have absolutely no shame, no integrity and no heart. They will exploit the death and suffering of a couple who took missteps in fear of the virus (which has been propped up plenty by the fake news media) if it helps them hurt Trump.
This is some of the most scum-of-the-earth “reporting” I’ve seen since the Kavanaugh hearings.
These devils truly are the enemy of the people.

“And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”

In this day and age, if you dare tell the truth about biological gender, you stand the risk of being lambasted, cancelled or both. Any semblance of scientific truth regarding the issue of transgenderism must be culled in favor of science fiction so that a miniscule sector of society will not feel offended and so that Leftists can politicize and attack people for some sort of bigotry as though it’s a sport. But what happens when America’s first legal “non-binary” person discovers the truth about so-called gender identity and returns to his original gender of male?
This is what James Shupe is attempting to do, fighting legal fights in multiple states (namely Florida and Oregon) to get back his original gender of male and put it back on all legal documents which currently legally state that he is “non-binary”.
PJ Media had an extensive piece regarding this issue that I recommend you check out yourself, as I will likely not be able to cover everything here.
Shupe told PJ Media: “The charade of not being male, the legal fiction, it’s over. The lies behind my fictitious sex changes, something I shamefully participated in, first to female, and then to non-binary, have been forever exposed. A truthful accounting of events has replaced the deceit that allowed me to become America’s first legally non-binary person.”
He added: “The legal record has now been corrected and LGBT advocates are no longer able to use my historic non-binary court order to advance their toxic agenda. I am and have always been male. That is my biological truth, the only thing capable of grounding me to reality.”
He also said: “I hope that [a woman who is fighting to legally change her legal designation to non-binary] and all the others are denied the right to change their sex to non-binary because it’s fraud and legal fiction based on pseudoscience. I was indoctrinated to believe that I had this thing called a gender identity and that suppressing it was causing my mental health problems. It was all a lie.”
Obviously, this is a complete 180 from what he used to believe. Though he has mental health problems, he was led to believe that these problems were a result of suppressing a gender identity that was different from his biological sex. He was easy prey for anyone with an agenda to destroy as many lives as possible. As I said in the title, he used to be a hero in the LGBT community because of not only his transition into a woman, but particularly for becoming the first legally “non-binary” person in America. His own case has been and currently is being used by other people to legally transition their own legal gender status to “non-binary” as well, which he sincerely hopes to fight against.
Shupe later told PJ Media about the sort of physical and psychological harm his transitions have caused him:
“I ended up in the psych ward three times because of hormones. I had blood clots in my eyes because my estrogen levels were 2,585 instead of 200 (normal estrogen levels for women ranges from 15-350 picograms/milliliter, while for men, it ranges from 10-82 pg/mL. A man receiving roughly THIRTEEN times the normal amount for a woman is bound to lead to terrible health problems), low bone density, problems controlling my bladder, and emotional instability. Blood tests indicated I was dropping into kidney disease territory (eGFR below 60%) for about 18 months, I had chronic dermatology issues and skin reactions to estrogen patches, I passed out on the kitchen floor from Spironolactone (a drug meant to treat heart failure, high blood pressure or hypokalemia (low potassium levels in blood)).”
In all, while James was led to believe that transitioning into a different gender from what he is would be helpful, it only ended up hurting him more than anything. He had mental health issues before and these issues were only exacerbated by the sort of hormone treatment he was receiving, on top of the various drugs he was taking. The high-strength marijuana he was taking also made him hallucinate:
“The gender transitions were supposed to fix my mental health problems, but I kept getting worse instead. The high-powered marijuana made me psychotic. I started hearing booming noises and having visions of being some Indian woman. I started believing I was some kind of chosen one who was picked to restore the third gender to North America, that’s what I thought the visions were telling me.”
It’s not surprising at all that the Left, who are like the devil, would try and convince James to destroy his own life using lies and deceit. NO ONE gets better by exacerbating mental health issues and no one who claims to be “loving and tolerant” could come off as such when they suggest that people physically and psychologically harm themselves by lying to them about what would happen.
The serpent lied to Eve about her dying if she were to eat the fruit from the forbidden tree and lied to her about being “like God”. He convinced her that she would be “like God, knowing good and evil” to get her and Adam to destroy their very own lives and get them kicked out of literal paradise. The Left is exactly the same way, telling people lies so that they will willingly destroy their own lives. “No, socialism doesn’t lead to death and starvation. It leads to prosperity!” “Yes, your mental health issues will all go away if you make the transition into a different gender entirely.” “No, your unborn child is not a human; it’s nothing more than the equivalent of Jell-O.” “Yes, you should give up your rights and freedoms to the government. It’s for the environment!” “Yes, little Timmy, anyone who has guns is a bad person and will only seek to hurt you.”
All destructive lies that can alter, ruin or outright end people’s lives. And the Left repeats them with zero remorse regardless of the consequences.
Despite what this ideology has gotten James, any attempt to fight back against it has been met with scorn from the very people that considered him a sort of “hero”. Once he began to disagree with the transgender ideology, the various media sources that would love to hear what he had to say all of a sudden were uninterested in his opinion. They didn’t care that he agreed with Trump’s transgender military ban. They didn’t care that he was worried about the effect of this ideology on young children and their growing bodies. They didn’t care about the harmful effects this lifestyle has had on his life and on his health.
“Not a single Oregon media outlet has been willing to talk to me, let alone report that I’ve reclaimed my birth sex and have denounced gender ideology. They dropped me after I supported Trump’s ban on gender dysphoria in the military. That got me canceled.”
The Left doesn’t care for the truth. James finding out this truth is harmful to their twisted and sick ideology that seeks to destroy as many lives as possible. His landmark case allows for people to transition into legal non-binary status and they definitely are not going to let it be known that the very person that sought and attained the first legal non-binary status in this country has come forth with his testimony about the entire process and that he is now seeking to regain his male status (which he says is legally challenging, as the Social Security Administration reportedly refused to accept a doctor’s letter stating he was a biological male and that they forced him to claim that he had undergone a transition to male, despite the fact that that’s not the case at all, but the ideology is more important than the individual to these people).
Shupe also called out the doctors and judges who facilitated the transitions because they were aware of his mental health problems and ignored them in favor of being “woke”: “Why didn’t they (the doctors) force me to go to mental health for an evaluation about why I felt the sex change (to female) was a failure instead of giving me yet another one (to non-binary)?” And regarding the judge that allowed him to transition to “non-binary”: “The Oregon judge physically and mentally harmed me by silently rubber-stamping the non-binary court order to advance a transgender agenda, to which she has ties.” According to PJ Media, before the proceeding had begun, “Shupe’s lawyer told him not to worry because the judge herself had a transgender kid.”
The entire thing is very messed up from top to bottom. He was lied to about the reason he had mental health issues and pushed him down a slope of further psychological but also physical and emotional issues and pain.
Do you wonder why I so often call the Left “evil” and “of the devil”? Because of this kind of stuff. And while no actual political party was mentioned here, we all know what side of the political aisle supports this kind of stuff. Only the Left would be willing to lie to someone about the reasons for their problems and put them down a road of self-destruction all for the sake of a political agenda meant to divide and destroy the American culture and the nuclear family, not to mention any sense of reason and the definition of truth.
The Left are the ones to destroy people’s lives. The Left are the ones to say “my truth” or “his truth” or “her truth” as though truth were entirely subjective. The Left are the only ones who would be heartless enough to destroy people’s lives all for the sake of political dominance and the advancement of their agenda.
I sincerely hope and pray that James wins his legal cases and, following this, he will turn his life to Christ, who is the only one who can actually help him with his mental health issues, let alone his other life issues.
“And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.”

In an article where I defended the idea of Christians defending President Trump, I noted how it was sinful to lie and to bear false witness against someone. In this case, I am certainly not surprised that South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg would lie and bear false witness against the Founding Fathers, but I still feel the need to clean the stain that he is trying to leave behind.
Speaking to children in a school (making sure they grow up to hate America just as much as he does), Mayor Pete tried to convince the children present that the Founding Fathers were silly, ignorant troglodytes who did not understand right from wrong and did not understand that slavery was not good.
“Similarly, the amendment process; they were wise enough to realize that they didn’t have all the answers, and that some things would change. A good example of this is something like slavery, or civil rights. It’s an embarrassing thing to admit, but the people who wrote the Constitution did not understand that slavery was a bad thing. They did not respect civil rights, and yet they created the framework so that as the generations came to understand that that was important, they could write that into the Constitution too and ensure true equal protection for all,” said the fake Christian.
While it sounds like he is praising the Founding Fathers in some places, he is doing nothing but passive aggressively insulting them when he is completely wrong about this.
Of course, the fake Christian Democrat was blasted online for his words, with people like historian and columnist Jay Cost saying: “The ignorance is astounding” on Twitter.
To further emphasize just how ignorant and wrong Mayor Pete is, he elaborated that the guy who wrote the Constitution, Governor Morris, “gave an amazing series of speeches in Philadelphia denouncing slavery.”
James Madison, on August 8th, 1787, made notes of the debates regarding the text of the Constitution featuring Morris and wrote:
“Mr. Govr. MORRIS moved to insert ‘free’ before the word inhabitants. Much he said would depend on this point. He never would concur in upholding domestic slavery. It was a nefarious institution. It was the curse of heaven on the States where it prevailed. Compare the free regions of the Middle States, where a rich & noble cultivation marks the prosperity & happiness of the people with the misery & poverty which overspread the barren wastes of Va. Maryd. & the other States having slaves. Travel thro’ ye. whole Continent & you behold the prospect continually varying with the appearance & disappearance of slavery. The moment you leave ye. E. Sts. & enter N. York, the effects of the institution become visible, passing thro’ the Jerseys & entering Pa. every criterion of superior improvement witnesses the change. Proceed south widely & every step you take thro’ ye great region of slaves presents a desert increasing, with ye. increasing proportion of these wretched beings.”
“Upon what principle is it that the slaves shall be computed in the representation? Are they men? Then make them Citizens and let them vote. Are they property? Why then is no other property included? The Houses in this city [Philada.] are worth more than all the wretched slaves which cover the rice swamps of South Carolina. The admission of slaves into the Representation when fairly explained comes to this: that the inhabitant of Georgia and S. C. who goes to the Coast of Africa, and in defiance of the most sacred laws of humanity tears away his fellow creatures from their dearest connections & damns them to the most cruel bondages, shall have more votes in a Govt. instituted for protection of the rights of mankind, than the Citizens of Pa. or N. Jersey who views with a laudable horror, so nefarious a practice.”
Suffice to say, as Madison’s own words can be considered, many of the Founding Fathers were vehemently AGAINST slavery and found it to be an abhorrent practice. When Madison writes: “Are they property? Why then is no other property included?”, he is basically talking about the discussion and debates they had been having over this matter. No one was debating whether someone’s house was property, or whether someone’s dog as property or whether someone’s furniture was property. They were debating whether slaves, fellow human beings who very much look like human beings, even if they have a different skin color, are property or are to be considered their fellow Man, and it’s quite clear where James Madison stood on this.
And Madison is far from the only Founding Father to hold slavery with such disdain. Thomas Jefferson, the Founding Father most often demonized for having owned slaves at one point, had originally written this in a draft of the Declaration of Independence but eventually took it out: “He [King George] has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred right of life and liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither.”
Jefferson is charging King George III with waging war against HUMAN nature and violating the sacred right to life and liberty of PERSONS in Africa that he sent to the colonies to turn into the slaves of the highest bidders. If he didn’t consider African slaves to be people and humans, he wouldn’t have written this in his draft and the only reason I could consider for having taken it out is because some people were debating in favor of holding slaves and did not want that part in the Declaration of Independence, as it would’ve delegitimized their slave-owning practices.
In a letter to Lawrence Lewis on August 4th, 1797, our nation’s first president, George Washington, wrote: “I wish from my soul that the legislature of this State could see a policy of a gradual Abolition of Slavery.”
Washington, by the way, was another target of the hateful Left as being demonized for having owned slaves at one point, but he clearly loathed the practice.
Our nation’s second president, John Adams, wrote on June 8th, 1819: “Every measure of prudence, therefore, ought to be assumed for the eventual total extirpation of slavery from the United States… I have, throughout my whole life, held the practice of slavery in… abhorrence.”
Our Founding Fathers minced no words about how they felt about slavery. Now, Leftists could say “but if they hated it so much and thought it so evil, why didn’t they do something about it?” and I’ve already explained elsewhere why this is: slavery, as a practice, was dying at the time, not to mention that they did do things to end slavery.
From December 2nd, 1793 to March 3rd, 1795, the 3rd Congress debated and eventually passed a bill to suppress slave trade and prohibiting the U.S. from trading with foreign countries. What’s more, multiple sessions in the Senate and House held debates regarding the abolition of slavery for a very long time.
For a time, the U.S. prohibited slave trading ships from entering and limited the number of slaves. Again, the practice was dying and Congress, at least the Senators and Representatives who wanted to end the practice and had the power to do so, worked towards killing the practice faster. The only thing that made slavery worse and caused a resurgence of it, particularly in the South, was the invention of the cotton gin, which made picking cotton (which used to be extremely difficult and hardly worth the hassle) a far easier thing to accomplish. This drove up demand for slaves to pick cotton and as a result, slave trade continued and, as I said, got worse until the Emancipation Proclamation.
The notion that our Founding Fathers “did not understand that slavery was a bad thing” is completely erroneous and ignorant. The Founding Fathers, particularly the notable ones, ABHORRED the practice of slavery and hoped that it would be put to an end one day, having done what they could with the time that they had. And the work they did in limiting and prohibiting slave trade would’ve been quintessential to ending slavery altogether in the country if the cotton gin had not driven up demand for slavery and caused Congress to amend and lift those prohibitions.
The Founding Fathers made their views on slavery perfectly clear and it is wrong for anyone, let alone a Presidential candidate, to smear them as these ignorant Neanderthals who hardly knew right from wrong and stumbled their way to allowing for future generations to change things for the better. Not that I expect any different from Pete Buttigieg or anyone else on the Democrat Party. Their hatred for this country, particularly for its founding principles, is no secret. Failed Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke also tried to smear the country’s very founding as racist and bigoted. No Democrat running for president, and no Democrat holding any sort of electoral seat, can be said that they hold any love for this country.
And with ignorant statements such as the ones by Buttigieg, it’s becoming increasingly clear to the American people.

In a statement published by the journal of BioScience, 11,000 “scientists” sounded the alarm about the emergency that is climate change and called on governments and people to take action.
The statement read: “We declare clearly and unequivocally that planet Earth is facing a climate emergency… An immense increase of scale in endeavors to conserve our biosphere is needed to avoid untold suffering due to the climate crisis… The climate crisis is closely linked to excessive consumption of the wealthy lifestyle… To secure a sustainable future, we must change how we live…”
Boy, does that sound like a huge warning and boy does that sound like a massive pile of crap. Funny enough, whoever thinks this is, indeed, a massive pile of crap is absolutely right.
Feel free to explore literally any of the other articles I have written over the last few years regarding climate change to see how utterly ludicrous this is. But for this article, I will allow for others to (sort of) make the arguments for me.
You see, apart from the fact that this statement is ridiculous on its face, clearly only serves the Left’s desires of obtaining and retaining power, and offers little in terms of accurate scientific evidence, there are a number of problems with just about everything surrounding this statement.
First of all, 15,000 “scientists” signed a similar statement back in 2017, giving the same warning about climate change. What happened to the other 4,000 “scientists” this time around? Were they unavailable for comment? Were they on sabbatical? Did they change their minds? I don’t know, but the fact that there are thousands less “scientists” to sign this nonsense is quite telling.
Second of all, a decade ago, over 30,000 American scientists signed the Global Warming Petition Project, which was a warning that there was NO convincing scientific evidence to suggest or prove man-made climate change was real. The Project also insisted that global pacts like the Paris Climate Accord (such as the Kyoto Protocol) were counterintuitive to science and people’s very lives.
Funny how a petition signed by more than 30,000 American scientists didn’t get any airtime from the cable news networks but 11,000 signatories from across the world received MSM attention.
Third of all, out of the 11,000 signatories of the most recent climate warning, only 156, or 1% of them, had a job title that included the field of climate research. The rest includes a list of the following:
I am not even joking. That’s how bad and outright funny this list is (which is now inaccessible since it was discovered that the talking mouse had signed it). Not only are an extremely low amount of people who have any sort of experience in the field of climatology the signatories, but some of the signatories are outright FICTIONAL CHARACTERS!
I honestly don’t know what’s funnier: that these people are desperate enough to credit a scientist’s MOM or fictional characters.
Have a look at the following pictures to find the sort of colorful cast this list includes:
This list is beyond parody and the titles that this list includes is a major reason I say that these are “scientists”. Yes, there are many here who actually are scientists, but not people who are qualified to sound the alarm over climate change in this manner. That 11,000 number may sound like a lot, which is its major intention, but 99% of it is filled with people who are either not climatologists, not doctors, not scientists or not even real.
Even one of the Zoologists on the list says that they are from the University of Neasden, UK. There is no University of Neasden, UK. The University of Neasden, UK is said to be a fictional university created by a British satirical magazine.
To put it into perspective, it’d be like giving credence to someone who was featured in a “The Onion” article.
The entire statement has a lot of problems, from bad graphs (no graph used shows historical data past 1980, so the lines are very sharp and diagonal when throughout the history of the world, what we have now might be considered fairly normal) to less signatories in just two years to the fact that there was a similar warning only two years ago to the fact that far more than double the amount of just American scientists argue AGAINST the idea of man-made climate change to the hilariously unqualified signatories ranging from scientists that have nothing to do with the climate to other professions to family members of a scientist to fictional people from fictional places.
Anyone who would even for a minute take this statement seriously is severely lacking in any sort of information about the topic at hand. Worse still, they would have to be severely lacking in this sort of information about who the signatories actually are or would have to be extremely dishonest to push this as any sort of significant evidence that there is a climate crisis and we must act with haste and in extreme ways.
Again, I invite you to read over any of the other articles I have written over the years surrounding the topic of climate change. Regardless of what you may think of them, or even me, I can guarantee I’m more qualified to talk about climate change than MICKEY MOUSE.
“A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness breathes out lies.”
Author: Freddie Marinelli.
A little over a week ago, I wrote an article talking about how there was no link between extreme weather phenomenon and man-made climate change. Well, today, let’s talk about another ridiculous claim that the Left often makes: climate change leads to rising sea levels and will mean coastal cities will be flooded in a certain amount of time unless we employ more and more socialistic policies to “turn this around”.
When you put it that way, it’s hard to deny how much it looks like a scam… because that’s precisely what it is. And yet, many people buy into the idea that we are killing our planet through our cars and our air conditioners and our capitalism (somehow, despite China being one of the most egregious polluters in the world) and that in a certain amount of decades, places like Los Angeles, New York City, Miami, etc. will be uninhabitable for humans and land animals because they will be flooded.
This sort of cycle continues, as we still hear about this idiocy despite the fact that people have made predictions for today that are exactly like that and have failed to come true, such as Dr. James Hansen predicting back in the late 1980s that New York City’s West Side Highway would be under water within 20 years. Not quite sure why he chose to be so specific, but whatever the reason may be, he was obviously very wrong as it has been about 30 years since the late 1980s and no such thing has happened.
However, a recent study has shown that “trends in recent rates of shoreline change along the U.S. Atlantic Coast reflect an especially puzzling increase in accretion, not erosion,” according to Armstrong and Lazarus (2019) in a newly-published paper.
Notice the sort of language these guys are using. They are totally baffled at the idea that shorelines are actually expanding, because they are under the belief that sea levels are rising, which would naturally lead people to believe that shorelines would have to be decreasing. The authors try to attribute this “enigmatic pattern” to “beach nourishment” or infrastructure development to explain how this is happening even though sea levels are supposed to be rising.
As Climate Depot notes, “From 1830 to 1956, shorelines eroded at the rapid rate of -55 cm per year on average. Since 1960, the U.S. Atlantic coast has been expanding (accretion) at a rate of +5 cm per year.”
The real reason for this happening is not “beach nourishment” but rather because any scientist who is not paid off to spew Leftist garbage knows that geophysical processes are the reason for such sea-level variations throughout the entire world, not idiotic beliefs like glaciers melting causing there to be more water in the ocean.
Which really brings us to the main point this article is meant to tackle: the idea that melting ice caps (which are actually doing the opposite of melting) would cause sea levels to rise and coastal areas to get flooded. Anyone who has passed 6th grade science ought to know that ice is water in a different form and that melting of ice does not cause there to be more water out of nowhere.
For example, fill a glass with ice and then fill it with water just before it begins to overflow. Leave that glass of water with ice alone until the ice melts (or put it in the microwave if you’re impatient) and see the results. According to the Left, the glass will overflow because the ice will melt. However, what we notice is something entirely different: the glass is still just as full as it was before, there was no overflow, but now there’s just no ice. That is because ICE IS WATER TOO! It’s just in a different physical state, but it will still take up the exact same amount of space. Whatever space the ice cube was filling before is replaced with the water that the cube was composed of. There is no displacement of water, so there is no overflowing of the glass.
How then, if the ice caps were to melt, would the world get flooded when all the melting of the ice does is change the physical state of the ice from a solid to a liquid?
What’s more, has any of these Leftists ever heard of the water cycle? You know, the cycle where water evaporates, goes into the atmosphere, precipitates as rain or snow (depending on the temperature), goes down into sewers, rivers, etc., makes its way back to the ocean and begins the cycle anew? Well, if the ice caps were melting, that means some of the ice would be turned into a gas too, go into the atmosphere and go through the process we just described, so there technically would be a little bit less water than when it was in its ice form anyway.
But returning to my main point, it is ridiculous to suggest that the ice caps melting (which isn’t even happening, for God’s sake) would in turn lead to coastal cities to get flooded. That’s not how any of this works.
If you don’t believe me, just ask Christopher Piecuch, Peter Huybers and literally six other scientists saying: “the majority of large-scale spatial variation in long-term rates of relative sea-level rise on the US East Coast is due to geological processes that will persist at similar rates for centuries.”
Climate change does not lead to rising sea levels. Trends in sea levels, whichever way they may go, have more to do with geological processes than climate change.
And if the study by the seemingly baffled scientists is in any way accurate, then we can clearly see this to be the case. Now, if you were to ask me exactly how it’s happening, then I have no clue. I’m not a geologist by any means. But I do understand enough about the world to know that it’s completely asinine to say that melting ice caps and glaciers, etc. would lead to massive cities getting flooded. Science itself denies that this is at all possible, never mind that shorelines around the world have been in a trend of growth for a number of decades.
Between 1985 and 2015, satellite observations showed that coasts all over the world have gained roughly 13,000 km2 more land area than it had lost to the ocean, according to scientists back in 2016. So all over the world, coasts have only gained land, not lost to the ocean.
Now just watch as the Left will spin that as “we are warming the planet up so much, we are drying up the oceans”. I wouldn’t put it past them to start claiming such a thing.
