Actual History vs Made-Up History
As President Biden prepares to spend Tuesday night telling us in his State of the Union Address how he’s healed divisions, brought us together and restored honor and decency to the Presidency, don’t forget that he spent Monday telling an audience at a Black History Month event that Republicans want to ban their votes from even counting. Well, at least he didn’t tell them we want to put them back in chains…this time.
For people who didn’t get taught actual American history, the Republican Party was founded to end slavery, which Democrats fought a Civil War against a Republican President to preserve. And no, the Parties did not magically “switch positions” in the 20th century. Jim Crow laws, George Wallace and Bull Connor (terms Jim has also hurled at Republicans recently) were all 20th century Democrat systems or politicians.
For what it’s worth, Vice President Kamala Harris also didn’t have the best day at that same event.
Biden: Not as Tough as he will pretend, he is tonight
One thing we will surely hear in Biden’s State of the Union Address will be an attempt to take credit for taking the lead in imposing sanctions on Russia and sending weapons to Ukraine. Indeed, a CBS News poll found wide support for those things among Americans.
But as Alex Parker at Redstate.com points out, the same poll also gave Biden only 41% approval of his handling of Russia and Ukraine, maybe because they’re smart enough to know that Republicans were pressing Biden to do those things a month ago, BEFORE Putin invaded.
Say, do you know a way that Biden could have crippled Putin’s ability to wage war on his neighbors while also ensuring a steady supply of affordable energy for ourselves and for Europe that didn’t come from Russia? By NOT setting about destroying America’s fossil fuel industry on his first day in office. And do you know how we could still do those things now? By Biden ENDING his war on America’s fossil fuel industry and letting it reopen fully.
Crazy, I know, but it just might work. However, we may never know because Biden still refuses to do it.
The CDC loosens its mask guidance
With the CDC suddenly loosening its mask guidance and instituting more accurate methods of counting COVID cases and deaths, scientists who were vilified for saying the same things two years ago are taking a victory lap. Although to quote a famous DC fake scandal victim, where do they go to get their reputations back?
The CDC is being blasted for making these changes not because the “science has changed,” as they claim, but because the politics have changed and polls show Americans are fed up with the draconian COVID measures and mandates.
Here’s another way that the science hasn’t changed but has become clearer – and it’s made it clearer that all the pitched battles over vaccine mandates for kids were unnecessary. Not only are young children at virtually no risk of severe COVID, but a New York State Department of Health study found that with the rise of the Omicron variant, the effectiveness of Pfizer’s vaccine in kids age 5 to 11 dropped to a measly 12%.
Untold Damage in Canada
Just a reminder that while Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s tyrannical response to the truckers’ protest may have receded from the news, the untold damage that he caused will roll on for years.
Thanks to him, truckers who did nothing but peacefully demonstrate to get their freedom back have been arrested, are facing ridiculous jail sentences, have had their trucks confiscated, their licenses revoked, their businesses destroyed, and will likely suffer divorces, families torn asunder and even suicides. And that doesn’t even get into the damage caused to Canada’s supply chain and its international reputation.
This is all a direct result of Trudeau’s autocratic intransigence. That must not be forgotten. His victims shouldn’t be prosecuted, they should be released and made whole again. And he and anyone who supported his outrageous power grab should be banished from office for life.
“If It Weren’t for Double Standards” Dept
Stacey Abrams told Axios that “I will always acknowledge the legal outcome of an election,” but she doesn't want the American people to be in a place "where we cannot legitimately question" and criticize election systems in an effort to make them better.
As for her refusal to acknowledge her clear loss to Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018 and concede, that’s legitimate because she said, “the legal outcome” and he only won by illegally suppressing the people’s right to vote – something she has provided no evidence to support.
There’s a lot more blah blah at the link, but to condense all that verbiage down to its essence: “When we win, it’s insurrection to question the election. When we lose, it’s legitimate to question the election.”
Another reason to be fed up with tech companies
If you’re fed up with tech companies shutting down and demonetizing people for “terms of service” violations that amount to disagreeing with utopian leftist views, then here’s one that will really annoy you: The financial support service Patreon shut down a $250,000 fundraiser by a nonprofit group to supply body armor for Ukrainians because they don’t allow anyone to raise money to fund “military activity.”
Apparently, not getting shot to death by the Russian Army is now unapproved military activity. FYI: the group they suspended is called “Come Back Alive.” Does coming back alive violate their terms of service, too?
Putin’s invasion of Ukraine so dominated the news that the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) didn’t get much coverage. But it wasn’t that nothing newsworthy came of it. For instance, a straw poll of conservatives found that 97% approve of Trump, 99% disapprove of Biden (with 98% “strongly” disapproving), and 61% think Biden’s incompetence is the biggest threat to America’s safety and security. Well, okay, the only real news there is that the last one was only 61% and not 100%.
In fact, that sentiment seems to extend beyond CPAC, since a new Harvard/Harris poll found that 62% of voters believe Putin wouldn’t have invaded Ukraine if Trump were still President. For one thing, he wouldn’t have had all that oil money to pay for it.
If a primary were held today, 59% of CPAC attendees would vote for Trump, but if he weren’t running, 61% would choose Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Which is one of the reasons why the media are hilariously trying to blame DeSantis for Russia attacking Ukraine. That would only be plausible if it happened at Epcot Center. (Warning: rough language.)
And a lot of false claims are being made about Trump’s CPAC speech or recent comments he made. For the record, here's a video and a transcript of his entire speech.
No, he didn’t say he was running again in 2024. As for all the media hyperventilating over his alleged “praising of Putin” at another event, he said Putin was “pretty smart” to invade Ukraine when Biden was President and he could take over a whole country for $2 worth of sanctions. But it seems clear that he wasn’t praising Putin so much as slamming Biden for weakness and underestimating his opponent. Also, he was speaking before the high cost of the invasion became apparent.
This is the complete quote with some of that precious “context” that “fact checkers” are always claiming conservatives leave out:
Trump has since given genuine praise to Ukrainian President Zelinskyy, saying, “He's a brave man, he's hanging in." When pressed to renounce his “praise” of Putin as smart, he replied, "The problem is not that Putin is smart, which, of course, he's smart. The problem is that our leaders are dumb...and so far, allowed him to get away with this travesty and assault on humanity."
I guess I don’t have terminal TDS, but it doesn’t strike me as a compliment to say that someone was “smart” enough to know the best time to launch an “assault on humanity.” If Putin ultimately doesn’t get away with it, it won’t be because he isn’t smarter than some people, but because he stupidly underestimated the Ukrainians. Stephen Green at PJ Media expands on that…

Hope you and your staff are working on analysis of the reality that in this age of global trade and relationships, invasion is not necessary to influence or control other groups. We can support Ukraine without sending troops and NATO and the EU do not have to extend full membership to a country directly bordering Russia, to be full economic, supportive partners. May we all keep praying for a peaceful outcome - unless Putin, seizing the opportunity with a collapsed US and weakened EU to rebuild the Russian empire to its former glory.

With biden being a globalist, Americans and people of the world are being victimized by this policy warfare poverty is going to be the new pandemic. I hope divine intervention is coming soon however my thoughts are the democrats are very slow to understand what is happening to them and the divine intervention is also going to be slow as democrats still feel big government is the savior for the lifestyle they desire as evil as the democratic template is I continue to hope and will pray for the divine intervention as the our GOP has its head in the sand and remain to quiet

The Democratic congress members are heading to the Life boats as Bidens Titanic Presidency has busted bulk heads if America wants to be saved biden needs to take a barrel of Russian oil and jump in it and seal up the barrel with the sign do not ever open.
03/02/2022 09:29 AM
Putin allows biden to say what he needs to to show that biden cares about the Russsian invasion but putin demands that biden buy putins oil or putin will expose the corrupt dealings between the biden syndicate and putin and his backers. Xi on the other hand will not allow biden to talk about china and its Human Abuses or the CCP in any way except to say China are America's competition in most venues.. If biden goes against Xi and the CCP, Xi will expose the corrupt dealings xi and the biden syndicate have already done. While the biden syndicate is in the Oval Office putin and Xi and the CCP will be controlling America. Democrats have bought biden idea's I don't think they knew how deep biden is with the CCP China and Russia and that is the base of the biden.s corruption there is more look around the world just look where biden has visited. The Green New deal, Climate CHANGE are all covers for a Global society to get the United States to be a part of an individual controlling society.

Biden thinks it Halloween trick or treat biden camouflage his message as if this fool wants to endorse conservatives views. This propaganda session is nothing more than a trick to sell democratic power grab. Biden and the deep state seek a global government is still the goal to be a communist regime like China Iran Saudi, Syria a cancel cultural society that does not allow individual freedoms mandates restrictions to religion I am proud of not embarrassing myself by watching this fool and it’s propaganda no way will I throw a rope to this imbecile while he sinks in his own quicksand

My comment is the Civil War was not started because of slavery.
The Southern states were still paying on the National Dept. The debt had been paid off, but they were still paying taxes. The tax money was going to the Northern States. The Northern States had more say so about this matter.
The Southern states wanted to trade with Europe but could not because of high tariffs etc.
So they fired on Ft. Sumter. The tax man's office was there. It is at a port.
After the war raged on for several years and Lincoln could not get recruits he added the part about slavery.
I don't have the dates he added the slavery to what the battle was being fought for but you can look it up.
David Barton a Christian man who saw how our National history was being changed has gone about buying documents and preserving the documents in a library.
David Barton is with Wallbuilders. He is in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area of Texas.
Just recently I was praying with a group from a Northern State. One lady a well know prophet started out by saying how she and another woman were talking. They hoped that some Bubba or Junior from the South didn't do something stupid.
Have heard comments from that group simular. All Rednecks from the South have guns. The North was mostly manufacturing I think. The South was rural. They needed guns for protection.
My dad's family were direct descendents from a Purital family that were founding members of the Mass. Bay Colony. My great, great, great grandfather was in Alabama during the civil war.
It strikes me as absurd when Northerners talk like they were saints during the war. This grandfather was not in the war. He did not charge the widows money when they came to his businesses. He and the Grandmother visited the widows & orphans with food, clothing and medicines.
A Union Troop came by on the way to the last battle of the civil war.
They stole everything. Turned livestock loose in the fields to destroy the crops. When they left one of my Grandfather's daughters was pregnant with an illegal Union solders baby.
I never heard of the Southern army acting that way. Yet the people from the North are still talking about how Godly they were. After the war there were groups from the South that raided and looted just like the Union Army did. The Southerners are wrong to do that. They got their playbook from the Union Army.
So next time you say the war was about slavery please look at all of the history. It did not start out about slavery.
Like the Boston Tea party was about taxation w/o representation. So we're the shots fired on Ft. Sumter.

Mike I really like reading your news letters , and usually agree with everything you say , but being from arkansas .. you of all people should know enough of "true" history of the south to know that the civil war , or actually war of northern aggression , was not as simple as most teachings try to make it ... not just a bunch of democrats against a republican president ... thats the problem these days , its always taught as a simple matter north against south .. but if a person really studies that era .. it is not .. but thanks for some great news articles

Thank you for being a steady, dependable voice for truth--which encompasses all matters of decency and morality! ...On this 6th day of the atrocious slaughtering of the Ukrainian people, today's powerful pictorial Bible verse, shown above, as well as the various articles you've kindly posted these last days have brought to mind connections among the Israeli Six Days' War, American colonial militia's musket battle for Independence against the mighty well-armed British, and Elon Musk's satellite access extension to Ukraine. Here's how my brain connects them...Among the Jobian 5:19 "wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted," surely God's revelation to the Israeli soldiers-- through the ministry of a Providential sandstorm-- of land mine traps set for them by their enemies, leading to their Six Days' War victory, can have an analogous "wonder and miracle" result, we pray, through the instrumentality of Elon Musk's making available reconnaissance information that reveals the Russian troop movements, and allows the Ukrainian people to be united with each other through unblocked communication...One intended darkness imposed by the Russians has been displaced by Internet LIGHT!...The MUSK-provided digital weapons that we pray, please God, will be for the Ukrainians precisely the MUSK-ets they need fighting the big bad Bear, driving it back into permanent hibernation, beating, by God's Grace, the odds against such an improbable victory as were the musket-bearing colonists' against Britain or the out-numbered Israeli's against their enemies. God is faithful to His people. Problem is: His people are not always faithful to Him. We pray for God's mercy on ALL of us...Oh, and sorry if I was not attending to an article in which you already called this information to our attention, but I learned tonight that to refer to "the Ukraine" is to fall prey to Russian propaganda which refers to "the Ukraine," implying that is an "area" or a "region," rightly belonging to them. Rather, we should purposely omit "the" when referring to the independent nation of "Ukraine," as the Ukrainians proudly do! Praying for Ukraine. Who knew there was so much Russian subterfuge in those three little letters? Praise God! Now we do! Thank you, Gov. Huckabee, for being a reliable messenger of TRUTH! God bless you and God bless your entire staff, too!

I hold little regard for "John Kerry, the man Vietnam vets nicknamed "the secretary of makin' sh*t up". However, I will acknowledge his influence on a couple generations of democrat politicians and wannabe journalist hacks. We have never had so many people willing to lie through their cosmetically enhanced teeth to try to get the public to believe them. When Kerry goes to his reward, Jen Psaki, George Stefanopoulos and a host of others are waiting in the wings to continue Kerry's role as democrat liar in chief.
