Proof ‘woke’ leaders don’t actually believe anything they say

David Kupelian shows how society’s elites are really just in it for the money and power

Every day, America’s leaders bombard the rest of us with a fusillade of the latest “woke” moral imperatives: “Equity!” “Diversity!” “Climate justice!” “Anti-racism!” “Trans rights!” “Reproductive justice!” “Preserving our democracy!”

Whether in government, big tech, big media or big business, our elites continually invoke these and other sacred mantras of the religion of Leftism, displaying to the world their superior moral virtue – in stark contrast to the vast unwashed peasant class comprising tens of millions of bigots, extremists, white supremacists, conservatives and other deplorables.

Yet, probe just beneath the surface of their “woke” righteousness, their passionate angst over “systemic racism,” “marginalized communities” and “saving the planet,” and it turns out most of these wealthy elites – whose policies are, after all, wrecking the country – don’t really believe in any of the left’s phantasmagoric causes.

They know men can’t have babies.

They know getting rid of police causes crime.

They just don’t care. They’re in it for the money – and the power, privilege and prestige.

Let’s start at the top with Joe Biden: Not only is he obviously unqualified to be president of the United States and leader of the Free World due to his advanced dementia, his decades of lying and fantastical boasting, and his utter lack of accomplishments. But Biden is also dangerously compromised and therefore extraordinarily vulnerable to blackmail. Why? Because of the many years of brazen political corruption, influence-peddling and shady business deals and payoffs between multiple members of the Biden family, including Joe Biden himself, and America’s most formidable adversaries – China and Russia – not to mention other nations, notably Ukraine. This combination of factors has put America and the entire world in greater jeopardy right now than at any time since World War II.

But, at least “the Big Guy” made a lot of money for himself and his family, and that’s what was important to him.

This disgraceful and dangerous dynamic is much the same with many other influential denizens of “the swamp.”

Bill and Hillary Clinton have been “in it for the money” for decades, from Whitewater to the Clinton Foundation, as many books and investigative reports have documented in detail. “No one has even come close in recent years to enriching themselves on the scale of the Clintons while they or a spouse continued to serve in public office,” writes author-journalist Peter Schweitzer in his bestselling book, “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Business Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.” The Clintons’ prodigious ability to exploit their power for personal gain, compared to that “of any other ex-politician, whether a former president, or congressman, Republican or Democrat, to accumulate such a large amount of money in such a short period of time is unmatched,” adds Schweitzer.

Like many in Congress, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her husband Paul have made millions on technology stocks of companies Pelosi helps regulate, amounting to de facto insider trading. In the same way, Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, who literally sets America’s energy policy and tirelessly pushes renewable energy projects around the country, has reaped huge profits off her millions of dollars’ worth of alternative energy stocks, whose value is directly affected by her public advocacy.

And then there’s John Kerry, former Democratic presidential candidate and now Joe Biden’s “climate czar.” Kerry’s first reaction to Russia’s murderous invasion of Ukraine was fear that it might divert some of the world’s attention away from “climate change.” However, John Kerry does not truly believe in the catastrophic, near-term, man-caused climate change he preaches. Not when he has spent years cajoling regular people to avoid driving “gas-guzzling SUVs” while flying everywhere in his own private jet.

Noting that Kerry – whose net worth is $750 million and who owns five luxury homes, a 76-foot yacht, a private jet, and of course an SUV – simply “loves luxury,” Daniel Turner, founder of Power The Future, a nonprofit that advocates for American energy jobs, reveals in the New York Post: “Asked about the green contradiction of traveling on his private jet to win an environmental award in 2019, the unserious statesman claimed it was ‘the only choice for someone like me.'”

Concludes Turner: “Take the threat of climate change seriously when John Kerry forgoes the private jets and luxury mega-conferences. Worry about rising sea levels when John Kerry sells his oceanfront mansion.”

Even the colorful freshmen congresswomen of “the Squad,” who if nothing else present themselves as true believers in the most extreme leftwing ideologies and agendas, are really just in it for the money, power and prestige. As one headline put it last summer, “AOC Invests $1.4 Million in Campaign Funds for Apparel Line With Her Initials,”revealing how Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez created and funded a new clothing line for herself.

“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in another move to make herself ubiquitous,” reported the Daily Wire, “paid a political merchandise firm a whopping $1.4 million from her campaign coffers just in the first six months of 2021 to create T-shirts and hats with leftist slogans such as ‘Tax the Rich’ and ‘Abolish ICE’ – much of the merchandise featuring her initials.”

And what about Rep. Ilhan Omar, who infamously tweeted “It’s all about the Benjamins, baby” – “Benjamins” being slang for $100 bills – implying U.S. lawmakers are bribed into supporting Israel? The venomously anti-Semitic Omar was just following the Left’s tried-and-true strategy of projection: Whenever someone on the hard Left accuses others of political corruption or any other crime, sin, fraud or scam, it’s because that is precisely what they themselves are guilty of doing.

Indeed, corruption is Rep. Ilhan Omar’s middle name.

She has been credibly tied to alleged criminal violations including “perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, federal student loan fraud, and bigamy.” DNA evidence virtually proves she married her own brother and committed immigration fraud, but she has also been connected to voter fraud in the form of illegal “ballot harvesting” in her largely Somali congressional district in Minnesota, while also allegedly violating campaign finance laws. One investigation found that on five different occasions, Omar misspent campaign funds, according to CBS 4 Minnesota. Even more brazen, Federal Election Commission records show Omar’s campaign sent $606,000 to the E Street Group, a D.C.-based consulting firm that just happens to be run by Tim Mynett, Omar’s third husband. That was in addition to the $1 million of donor funds she had previously directed to her husband’s firm. Omar married Mynett soon after both of them divorced their previous spouses.

But wait, many may ask at this point: If it’s really true that all these supposedly super-woke elites are just “in it for the money,” then what about the radical Left’s ideology,the fervent beliefs and causes all these politicians continually espouse, which have totally captured today’s Democratic Party and are metastasizing throughout the country and rapidly destroying it? What about the extreme ideological agendas currently corrupting America’s children, with “drag queen story hour” in pre-school,then full-bore LGBT and transgender indoctrination starting in kindergarten,followed by toxic Marxist “critical race theory” propaganda? What about the ubiquitous America-is-racist ideology that is perverting and transforming American society and culture into a guilt-ridden, divided, self-hating, emotionally crippled shadow of its former self?

Make no mistake: America’s universities and public schools and leftwing nonprofits and think tanks and “woke” activist groups and many other organizations and individuals are, indeed, totally captivated by today’s bizarre Marxist “narratives.” They have been convinced, seduced, intimidated or guilted into believing America is a predatory, racist country, that men are women if they think they are, that little children should be sexualized, that conservatives are Nazis and Trump is Hitler, that capitalism is evil, and that the world will soon be uninhabitable due to global warming. The nightmarish dreams of leftist crazies are indeed alive in all the true believers.

However, that body of true believers does not actually include the leader class, who just pretend for the sake of maintaining and increasing their own power and privilege.

That’s right. The elites in government and business who wield the real power in American life don’t truly believe the radical agendas they force on everyone else.

Leaders of giant companies like Disney self-righteously promote Black Lives Matter, transgender and other radically woke agendas in the U.S., while simultaneously in their lucrative Chinese market remaining silent on the mass confinement of abused minorities in concentration camps and other grotesque civil rights outrages. Meanwhile, politicians go maskless while demanding everyone else mask up; they spend tons of taxpayer money on private police for themselves after defunding law enforcementfor the rabble. From Joe Biden to Nancy Pelosi to Chuck Schumer, today’s leader class can be seen on video just a few short years ago passionately evangelizing precisely the opposite positions to those they now advocate, on issues ranging from the crucial importance of border security to the sanctity of the Senate filibuster. Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have repeatedly changed their views on same-sex marriage depending on the political winds – Obama claiming in 1996, “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages,” but in 2008 insisting just the opposite, “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage,” but then in 2012, flipping back to, “[I]t is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.” Same exact story with Hillary Clinton who, like Obama, claims to have “evolved” on the issue.

They didn’t evolve. They cravenly changed their “views” in order to safeguard and increase their own privilege, wealth and power.

Question: Do such politicians, who have become hopelessly addicted to wealth, power and privilege, really believe in anythingoutside of themselves? Do they actually have any principles at all – other than personal advantage?

Arguably, many have become so selfish and corrupt, so hooked on the crack cocaine of power, that they no longer retain the internal capacity to truly care about anything outside of themselves. All of their most passionate, fervent-sounding positions are thus contrived solely to fulfill the current day’s requirements to maintain their power. They need their fix.

It’s all about them.

So, this is the surreal political culture now engulfing America: Though the oligarchs have no real principles nor agendas beyond themselves, down in the world of “the unwashed masses,” today’s Democratic Party and the causes it champions resemble one giant religious cult, with millions of people caught up with its various ideological denominations: the Climate Change cult, the Transgender cult, the America Is Racist cult, and so on. Indeed, many people have become total slaves of these and other bizarre leftwing “narratives.”

And yet, society’s elites – from the top politicians to “woke” mega-companies like Nike – know better. Their leaders and policy makers do not truly believe men have periods and can become pregnant, or that Donald Trump is another Hitler, or that Dr. Seuss is a racist. They just play along, they game the system … for the money and the power and the glory. For the ruling class, all the deranged leftwing agendas serve largely as a giant smokescreen enabling them to perpetually virtue-signal while disguising their raw selfishness, greed and personal ambition, their desire for privilege, wealth and fame, and for revenge against their enemies – that is, their desire essentially to be gods.

Still, one may well wonder how it is possible that, for example, someone like Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, a lesbian who openly identifies as “a trained Marxist,” can spend millions of dollars, donated by people wanting to support BLM’s cause, to purchase upscale mansions in southern California. Is she not a “true believer” in her own cause? What is it about leftist leaders that makes them betray everyone, even the people whose very cause they claim to champion? For decades, race hustlers like Rev. Al Sharpton and Rev. Jesse Jackson have become super-wealthy while pretending to address the plight of urban blacks, even though their efforts have served merely to stir up racial hatreds rather than meaningfully address obvious core problems like fatherlessness and family breakdown.

Shedding light on this whole phenomenon, and perhaps better explaining in what way the elites can appear to “believe” in the radical agendas they espouse while at the same time paradoxically “being in it for the money,” is M. Scott Peck, M.D., the celebrated psychiatrist and bestselling author of the classic book, “People of the Lie.”

People caught up with evil, writes Peck, are inherently liars, “deceiving others as they also build layer upon layer of self-deception.”Which is to say, it’s not so much a matter of the elites simply pretending to believe all of the left’s certifiably deranged ideologies – that fossil fuels must be completely eliminated from the earth and that babies aren’t actually human until after they’re born and so on. It’s more like: They have to continually delude even themselves (Peck’s “layer upon layer of self-deception”) into espousing positions they don’t truly believe, as a vehicle and justification for enriching and gratifying themselves – self-interest being what truly motivates them.

Put a little differently, their prodigious ability to lie, the ease with which they adopt and champion a perfectly insane cause as though it made sense – and apparently without suffering any conscience, conflict or guilt – applies inwardly as well. That is, while they’re lying to everyone else, they’re lying to themselves too. They’re like method actors who get deeply emotionally involved in their role and can be very convincing, even to themselves. But in the end, it’s all just an act. They collect their big paycheck and move on to their next role.

One final but crucial point to consider: Why is it that most Republicans are so maddeningly ineffective in countering the ruling Democrats’ rapid dismantling and destruction of America? Even those who espouse correct principles and publicly complain about the Biden administration and Big Tech and other malignant institutions rarely do anything to effectively counter them. Why would that be?

Same reason: Because of money and privilege. For many, though fortunately not all Republicans, various monied powers ranging from big corporate donors to communist China keep them and their political careers alive. They’re just too comfortable with the money, privilege and job security that come with their position as lawmaker, so they betray – however unconsciously – the very people and Constitution they are sworn to serve.

Peter Schweitzer’s most recent bestseller, “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win,” cites 20 former and current elected Republicans as having compelling political and business ties with America’s foremost adversary, China. Although fortunately many of those named by Schweitzer are no longer in office, one current figure wielding enormous power is Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky. McConnell, along with his wife, Elaine Chao, who served as transportation secretary during the Trump administration, “enjoy some of the deepest and most abiding ties to Beijing- linked entities of anyone in Washington, D.C.,” writes Schweizer.

When November’s much-anticipated midterm elections come, America’s very survival will depend on two big things: 1) Election integrity, since cheating will be literally the only hope Democrats have of retaining power, and 2) principled Republican freedom fighters, who don’t care if they serve only one term.

Remember, soldiers are deployed to fight and win battles and preserve their nation’s peace and wellbeing – not to carve out safe, comfortable, lucrative and permanent abodes for themselves on the battlefield.

Silent Saturday

April 16, 2022

This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then he took it down and wrapped it in a linen shroud and laid him in a tomb cut in stone, where no one had ever yet been laid. It was the day of Preparation, and the Sabbath was beginning. The women who had come with him from Galilee followed and saw the tomb and how his body was laid. Then they returned and prepared spices and ointments. On the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment. (Luke 23:52-56).

Trusting God through Rest

After Good Friday, there was Saturday. And although this day goes unrecorded in the Biblical narrative, we do have a few clues as to what the disciples may have done between the crucifixion and the resurrection: rested. They rested according to the Sabbath commandment, putting off decisions about their circumstances until the Sabbath had passed.

It would have been far too easy for these Jesus followers to allow disappointment or sorrow or confusion steal from their Sabbath. It would have been far too tempting to take matters into their own hands rather than waiting on God. But instead, they waited

And as 21st century believers, sometimes we find ourselves living out days that feel a lot like that Saturday. Days when we are overwhelmed by disappointment or when God feels silent. Days when we find ourselves between the problem and the solution. Days when we haven’t yet seen the actualization of what we have been praying for. And when these days come, we are invited to engage in a radical act of trust: resting in God’s promises.  

As we look forward to resurrection Sunday, remember that there is hope in the waiting. It is finished. And Jesus is alive – even if our circumstances don’t fully yet reflect the truth of that reality. 
– Pastor Miles McPherson

Good Friday

April 15, 2022

Good Friday is, indeed, a very solemn day. The crucifixion of our Lord and Savior is agonizing and brings to mind much sorrow. Just think how the disciples felt, witnessing it all.

But joy comes three days later as our Savior is resurrected from the dead!

Unchecked Copy Box
Blue Letter Bible

Mar 10:18 – So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God.

I love how Jesus made people think through their statements and questions. He often challenged them to really think about what they are saying…and what they truly believe!

Thank you Jesus, for saving me from my sins and for showing us all the way to eternal life!

Ep. 2748b – The Big Lie Is The [DS] Big Lie, The Crime Of The Century Is About To Be Revealed 

April 12, 2022

 “The big lie that the fake news and corrupt politicians have been telling is about to be revealed the same way the HB laptop was revealed to be true. The crime of the century is now being produced and the [DS] is going to throw everything they have to stop it. They are now trying to bring back covid, they are pushing the bird flu to push food shortages. They are trying everything they can, this is all going to fail. The people see the plan. Next round is about to hit the [DS], buckle up.”

The Nihilism of the Left – by Victor Davis Hanson

April 8, 2022

In pursuit of its utopian omelet, the Left cares little about the millions of middle-class Americans it must break to make it. 

By Victor Davis Hanson

April 3, 2022

The last 14 months have offered one of the rare occasions in recent American history when the hard Left has operated all the levers of federal government. The presidency, the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the permanent bureaucratic state are all in progressive hands. And the result is a disaster that is uniting Americans in their revulsion of elitists whose crazy ideas are tearing apart the fabric of the country. 

For understandable reasons, socialists and leftists are usually kept out of the inner circles of the Democratic Party, and especially kept away from control of the country. A now resuscitated Bernie Sanders for most of his political career was an inert outlier. The brief flirtations with old-style hardcore liberals such as George McGovern in 1972 and Mike Dukakis in 1988 imploded the Democratic Party. Their crash-and-burn campaigns were followed by corrective nominees who actually won the presidency: Southern governors Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. 

Such was the nation’s innate distrust of the Left, and in particular the East Coast elite liberal. For nearly half a century between the elections of John F. Kennedy and Barack Obama, it was assumed that no Democratic presidential candidate could win the popular vote unless he had a reassuring Southern accent. 

How did the extreme Left manage its rare takeover of the country between 2018 and 2020? Certainly, Obama’s election helped accelerate the woke movement and energized identity politics. One could also argue over the political opportunities in 2020 following the devastation of COVID-19. 

In the long term, the medicine of lockdowns and quarantines probably proved more calamitous than the disease, and this crisis mode made doable what had once been unimaginable. State governors such as Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer, and Andrew Cuomo did not let the pandemic crisis go to waste. It was a rare occasion to leverage agendas that otherwise had no public support in ordinary times.

In the chaos of 2020, both laws and customs were altered or scrapped—changing the very way we vote. Over 102 million ballots were either mailed in or cast during so-called “early voting”—strangely resulting in far lower rejection rates in most states than in past “normal” years of predominantly in-person voting on Election Day. Indeed, in just one year, Election Day went from an American institution to an afterthought.

The hatred of Donald Trump prompted an influx of hundreds of millions of dark dollars from Silicon Valley to supplant the responsibilities of registrars in key precincts with armies of paid activists. A non compos mentis, basement-bound Joe Biden was cynically given an “Ol’ Joe from Scranton” moderate veneer to pursue a calibrated hard-Left agenda. 

So Americans ended up with a neo-socialist government. It is proving as disastrous as it is bitterly instructive—reminding this generation of Americans what the Left does when it grasps power. As all restraints came off, the hard and now unbridled Left went to work to turn America into something like a looney, one-party California. A wide-open border followed. We may see 3 million illegal aliens cross at the southern border during the first 18 months of the Biden Administration. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been allotted to reward those illegally entering America, who can expect free legal support from the U.S. government to ensure they are not subject to the laws of the United States. 

In a sane world, Biden would have been impeached for deliberately destroying the very federal laws he swore to uphold. On the prompt of his hard Left controllers, he was eager to alter the electoral demography of the nation rather than ensure immigrants came in reasonable numbers, legally, with audit and background checks, and safely in a time of a pandemic. The former illegal arrivals were seen as needed constituents, the latter legal immigrants too politically unpredictable.

The Left in about a year has negated American gas and oil independence. Biden, who promised to end America’s use of fossil fuels on his watch, cast adrift millions of his fellow citizens to choose between driving and eating. Much of what the Left had traditionally demonized and wanted gone from American life—from gasoline to beefsteak to new pickup trucks—became so inflated in price as to be nearly unattainable. 

The electrician now pays five times more for his wire, the carpenter eight times more for his plywood, the plumber six times more for his pipe—as all three have to pay off-the-books cash for rare workers who prefer to get checks from the Biden Administration. The Biden printing press has destroyed both the idea that all citizens will work if there are just good-paying jobs, and that affordable necessities for life—food, fuel, and shelter—form the basis for a middle-class life.

If the Left did all that in 14 months, imagine what it can still do before losing the Congress in 2022.

The Biden Administration’s profligate multitrillion-dollar budget, inflation of the currency, de facto zero interest rates, destructive subsidies that undermined labor participation, and incompetence at addressing the supply-chain and clogged port crises will all by midyear likely achieve a 10 percent annualized inflation rate. Carter-era stagflation is on the near horizon. 

When an American president predicts a food shortage in what used to be the breadbasket of the world, then we see the wages of socialism in all their unapologetic cruelty. When the Left can scarcely hide its glee that diesel fuel hit $7 a gallon in California, the public is finally seeing that the Bidens, Newsoms, and AOCs of the world care nothing for the real-life consequences of their elite utopian green fantasies. How did America ever stoop to begging communist Venezuela, theocratic Iran, and dictatorial Russia to pump oil for us that we have in abundance but will not produce? Which insane person thought up the idea of using Vladimir Putin’s Russia as our mediator to restart the Iran Deal?

The now unfettered woke revolution seeks to Trotskyize American history and its heroes. A disastrous foreign policy of appeasement has ended U.S. deterrence. After the worst military humiliation in 50 years in Afghanistan, Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea all seek to capitalize on a rare American Phaethon moment. The world’s superpower has turned over the reins of its deterrence chariot to a ninny and his gurus. And before crashing the country, they aimlessly rebound from one self-created crisis to the next self-induced disaster. 

The Clerks Come Out

Aside from the dismal left-wing political record, the public has also witnessed an unapologetically leftwing federal bureaucracy now completely unbound. Our top echelon of the administrative state is defiant in its weaponized assumption of legislative, executive, and judicial powers. 

We are learning that the likes of Anthony Fauci have all but destroyed the reputation of once time-honored federal health agencies. In their contradictions, about-faces, and deceit, they focused mostly on controlling their multibillion-dollar public fiefdoms, hounding critics, rewarding sycophants, politicizing “science,” hiding culpability about routing money to lunatic gain-of-function research in China, and marginalizing outspoken voices of audit.

The military apparat after Afghanistan—defined as woke Pentagon functionaries, revolving door and politically weaponized corporate generals, and outspoken politicos—managed the impossible: a once revered military now cannot even win a 50 percent vote of confidence from the American public. 

The intelligence agencies are worse. Former kingpins such as John Brennan and James Clapper, both pundits for hire on leftwing cable networks, lied under oath before Congress without consequences. When 50 retired intelligence officials during the Biden 2020 campaign claimed publicly that Hunter’s laptop was likely a Russian plot, what then is left of any semblance of nonpartisan professionalism and integrity? 

James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Christopher Wray have all eroded the reputation of the FBI by fueling the Russian collusion hoax, the Alfa Bank hoax, and the Hunter laptop disinformation hoax. Since when does the FBI go after journalists in their underwear or moms and dads at school board meetings, as if it is now an extension of the teacher union or DNC?

Along with Robert Mueller—who claimed no knowledge of either the Steele dossier or Fusion GPS—the Washington FBI hierarchy did to the agency what Lois Lerner infamously did to the IRS. Just as Lerner became an extension of the Obama 2012 reelection effort and corrupted tax law, so the FBI descended into becoming the wayward Biden family’s retrieval service—eager to keep quiet Hunter’s incriminating laptop and to rescue Ashley Biden’s lurid diary.

When the evidence becomes overwhelming that the collusionary media lied about the laptop or the origins of COVID-19, there is never a retraction, only a Soviet-style silence about past untruth. And then it is on to the next false narrative. 

Add in the conduct of FBI luminaries such as the forger Kevin Clinesmith, Lisa Page, and Peter Strzok, who preferred to investigate conservatives rather than enemies of the nation. What characterizes, then, our once revered intelligence agencies is not just institutionalized mediocracy. Rather it is a dangerous zeal to enact by fiat politicized agendas that cannot otherwise be ratified by a legislative vote—all with the expectation that these sanctified agents of political change are above the law and will be rewarded accordingly.

Our Ill Institutions

Americans had tuned out many of our major institutions that are now openly hostile to American exceptionalism. In their nihilism, leftists seek to destroy the very organizations they absorbed. 

Professional sports? Multimillionaire basketball players are more likely to refuse to salute their own flag than to say a word of dissent to their autocratic and often ethnocentric Chinese paymasters.

Higher education? A Yale law school dean contextualizes the loud disruption of free speech by leftist law students at a conference. Only that way can she ensure that rules about open expression remain theoretical, and not real for the woke. 

Entertainment? Hiring, promotions, and awards are now based as much on race, gender, and sexual identity as on merit. 

Forty years ago, face slapper Will Smith would likely have been removed from the Oscar ceremonies for rudely shouting and interrupting the worldwide show. Twenty years ago, he might still have been rebuked for profanity and yelling the F-word in a live televised event. Now he is neither arrested nor even removed for physically assaulting comedian Chris Rock. His belated contrition is belied by his refusal to leave the ceremony and to go dancing and partying into the post-assault wee hours. Will there be open brawling on stage next year?

The Left got what it wanted and now controls academia, the media, the internet, K-12 education, corporate boardrooms, the Pentagon, Wall Street, and Hollywood. And they more or less have turned each of these into versions of Pravda. The sermons, arrogance, and narcissism of these woke cultural imperialists now explain why they are disliked as much abroad as they are at home. 

In sum, we are watching a rare laboratory experiment in which the traditional American fringe is now in control of the government. In pursuit of its utopian omelet, the Left cares little about the millions of middle-class Americans it must break to make it. The result is an unmitigated disaster that not only has tarred the Democratic Party, corrupted once-revered agencies, and alienated half the country from our cultural institutions, but now endangers the very health and security of the United States.

Hunter And The Hunt Is On! – The Marshall Report

April 4, 2022

LAPTOP FROM “HELL” IS NOW IN THE EYES OF THE PEOPLE AS WELL AS THE AUTHORITIES!

It’s difficult to choose an excerpt from Dianne’s post. You must read it all and see the video clips! However, here’s one:

“Remember all of this work was being done for CEFC China, the private energy conglomerate face of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, and 10% was “for the big guy – which is Joe Biden, the one who stole the election”.

If working on behalf of Russia’s largest oil and gas company to get around U.S. sanctions and working with Chinese intelligence officers on China’s Belt and Road Initiative, let alone stealing an election isn’t treason, then we might as well forget there is even such a thing or such a word for it.”

My comment there:

Wow! CBS reported on this! Did they decide to leave the fake news train? That’s good to know.

This entire post is excellent, Dianne! And I applaud your efforts to help wake up the remaining people who have been under the hypnosis 😵‍💫 of the media of mass deception!

Talk Wisdom

Talk Wisdom's goal is to defend the tenets and values of Biblical Christian faith. We defend our Constitutional Republic and Charters of Freedom, especially when speaking out against destructive social and political issues. As followers of our Savior and Lord, we should boldly stand up for Jesus Christ in our present circumstances. He is our Savior, Lord, and King, and His love needs to be shed abroad in our hearts and in our world - now.
