And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

John 10:28

Today's verse was recommended by Robert M.

2. Nothing personal:

It’s good to know that when the President compares defenders of basic election integrity laws to the most notorious racists in history, it’s really nothing personal:

Sounds like the legal defense that Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg recently used in a defamation lawsuit by George Zimmerman: “An allegation of racism or white supremacy is a matter of opinion and therefore not even actionable.”

I guess I’m old fashioned, but I was raised not to call people the worst names you can possibly call someone, especially if you can’t back it up and don’t even believe it yourself.

3. This court battle might not be over yet:

Despite the Supreme Court’s split ruling that OSHA doesn’t have the power to mandate vaccinations but the HHS can mandate them for healthcare workers, this court battle might not be over yet for all healthcare workers.

In a subscriber-only story, the Epoch Times reports that the Liberty Counsel has filed a brief with the SCOTUS on behalf of 2,000 health care workers in Maine who are seeking religious exemptions from the vaccine mandate. They’re using the same argument that succeeded in a Texas federal court against the Defense Department: if you allow for medical exemptions, people getting those exemptions pose the exact same risk to the state’s goals as those seeking religious exemptions. The virus doesn’t know the difference. So to allow secular exemptions and deny religious exemptions is unconstitutional religious discrimination.

I’ll keep you apprised on how this case goes. In the meantime, there are indications that support for vaccine mandates may be waning. For instance, there's this prominent person in the UK who says that considering that Omicron is a mild variant, Britain's mass vaccination effort is a "waste of time" and should come to an end. He says the government should focus instead on protecting the most vulnerable, such as unvaccinated elderly people.

Now, before I get censored and demonetized for spreading "misinformation" from some quack, I should quickly note that those comments came from Dr. Clive Dix, the former chairman of Britain's Vaccines Taskforce.

4. A shocking new Rasmussen Survey:

Remember when liberals believed in “My body, my choice”? Apparently, that applies onto to abortions, sex and recreational drugs. If you object to taking a vaccine, even if you might have medical issues or already have natural immunity, too bad: you will submit or else. At least that seems to be the opinion of a number of Democrats in a shocking new Rasmussen survey.

The survey found that 29% of Democrat voters would favor the government taking children away from parents who refuse COVID vaccines, 47% favor a government tracking program of the unvaccinated, 48% think the government should be able to fine or imprison anyone who publicly questions or criticizes the efficacy of current vaccines (FYI: I don't even favor imprisoning people who criticize ME), and a majority, 59%, favor allowing the government to force unvaccinated citizens to remain confined to their homes at all times, except for emergencies. Fortunately, that last one is opposed by 61% of all likely voters, including 79% of Republicans and 71% of independents, both of which are still frighteningly low percentages.

But if you want to put anything COVID-related other than vaccines into your body, then may God have mercy on you, because the government doesn’t. Daniel Pisano has been on a ventilator at the Mayo Clinic in Florida for 28 days. He’s been given less than a 5% chance of survival. His family wants to try the FLCCC plan that includes Ivermectin, but the Mayo Clinic refused. His family went to court to try to force the clinic to let an outside doctor give it to him, but the judge denied it. They’re now left with no alternative but to leave him on a ventilator and hope for the best.

If you remember, President Trump signed the “Right To Try Act” that allowed terminally ill patients to try experimental treatments when there was no other hope. Ivermectin is on the WHO’s list of essential medicines, it’s been used on humans since the 1980s and it’s the 420th most-prescribed medicine in the US. Despite claims that it helps save COVID patients, the FDA and CDC deny its efficacy and say it’s not approved for treating COVID.

My question: even if there's no approved studies showing that ivermectin helps, shouldn’t a person have a “right to try” it when the only alternative is to gasp for breath on a ventilator and “hope for the best”?

5. A victory against racism:

Finally, a victory against racism and for common sense and science, as Minnesota health officials react to angry public backlash and threats of lawsuits by dropping their plan to allocate monoclonal antibody treatments to COVID patients based on race. Still waiting to hear from Utah health officials.

6. Biden's brain

Some people have expressed concern about the faltering health of President Biden’s brain. And by “Biden’s Brain,” I mean the nickname that’s been given to his Chief of Staff, Ron Klain.

Last week, the Supreme Court specifically cited Klain’s retweet of a description of the OSHA mandate as being the ultimate “work-around” in finding that the Administration knew it was unconstitutional. You’d think that would teach him to think before pressing “Send,” or inspire his staff to hide his phone, but no…

Klain’s Twitter account is a marvelous fantasyland where the economy is booming because inflation didn’t rise quite as fast this month as last month (actually, it’s even worse than the government admits…)

…and there was a tiny increase in the labor participation rate! Of course, that might have just been from Amazon having to hire more workers to resend all the packages that are being looted off of trains in L.A.

But as Ron Klain might tweet, that’s good news: we have full employment for thieves! And they’re reducing smash-and-grab store crime by eliminating the middleman and stealing merchandise right off the trains! Under Biden, even thieves are becoming more efficient! It’s the best of all possible worlds!

Mr. Klain had better hope his gross of pig lipstick doesn’t get looted off the train.

7. Message to Virginia criminals who’ve been enjoying the revolving jail doors installed by “social justice” "prosecutors":

There’s a new sheriff in town.

8. North Korea Update:

Not that we need anything more to worry about, but North Korea claims to have successfully tested a hypersonic missile.

    Sounds like the state of Virginia finally has something good going for them with the new administration. I hope North Carolina will wake up next time and get rid of the Democrat governor currently in office. I read where Carhartt has notified all their employees they have to be vaccinated by sometime in February. I hope people will boycott them.

    The numbers portrayed in the Rasmussen survey are truly troubling when more and more data comes out that indicates the "covid inoculation" is not safe nor effective and I'm just going to leave it at that. What is more troubling is that the government has stood firmly in the way of proven treatments such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine. Makes no sense...they are cheap and effective solutions. But then big pharma and many others would not be making $billions!

    Today's President is incompetent, corrupt , without honor to the American people that reject communism, the country has communist, and most of them belong to what used to called the Democratic party. I could describe this Administration with many negative terms however the main description of this admin. is that it is a SAVAGE based organization. A primitive but effective use of the governments powers to destroy the country. I think the supporters of this regime are seeing the error of voting for this crime based organization. The crime is infused thru out the country. New York has continued its savage agenda with a new elected mayor Governor DA does one see change from this savage state do not make any big bets on it continue to watch a city and state without pity the savages are getting what it wants.

    With people leaving communist run cities and states really what are they really bringing with them? The same bedroom set decent furniture pictures and dining sets all reminders of where they came from. Most leave because of the high cost of living climate change crime rates great reasons to make a change another reason to move is stupid people making political decisions on who they vote for if the stupid people are moving they will become the new locusts to their new environment

    It's pretty obvious the politico-medical establishment has banned Oxychloroquine and Ivermectin for one reason - President Trump mentioned them as promising treatments.

    For those whose memory is not compromised by that democrat-favored herb Cannabis, recall that Al Gore was one of several dozen senators who "co-sponsored" the bill that established what eventually became the internet, and he used to go around claiming to have invented the internet.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci was much more intimately involved with the "gain of function"research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which eventually gave us the Wuhan virus (OK - Covid 19 for the Woke Folk). Fauci, however, does not seem anxious to claim his fame for helping invent the Wuhan virus. Not sure why.

    The Dems are feeling Donald Trump the Democrat MSM is feeling Donald Trump and they are changing the tune only to secure power in the mid terms and beyond. Every one on the planet knows that Trump will restore America to a better America the Dems can not have that. The futile attempt of "Democratic" party to completly destroy America is not complete. Our urban cities are a disaster for sure however the Suburbs and Rural areas are still worth saving and if if the Conservatives can win the midterms with Conservatives not GOP slime we can MAGA again. The wins in Congress have to be huge to many RINOS that are helping ruin America. Good Conservatives need to win not back stabbing GOP stabbing Americans,. I have no real choice in my blue state we are more like Michigan Wisconsin with it leadership Wisc. has Johnson with so many great citizens we have more immoral citizens in our urban areas and suburbs that elect Walz Omar Klobchar Smith so many people are so misled by these misfits its hard to understand however when I stand in line to cast my vote i see the people voting I know I am out numbered.
