DAILY BIBLE VERSE

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Matthew 17:20 KJV

Encouraging

Here’s some encouraging evidence that if the public speaks up loudly enough, the progressive wokesters who are ruining America will be forced to listen. Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg yielded to public outrage and is dropping the murder charge against bodega clerk Jose Alba, who grabbed a knife and killed a younger, larger man with a criminal record who was attacking him.

https://nypost.com/2022/07/19/alvin-bragg-to-drop-charges-against-bodega-worker-jose-alba/

It’s still an uphill battle, though. Alba was first hit with $250,000 bail, which was only lowered because of the public outcry. Then he faced second degree murder charges for defending his own life. The chairman of the National Association of Latino State Chambers of Commerce said, “If it weren’t for the NY Post, Mr. Alba would still be in jail.”

So the lesson is that while public outrage can help force “progressive” DAs to do the right thing, a better way to channel that outrage is to take it to the ballot box and throw these people out of power. That will prevent them from coddling criminals and prosecuting innocent citizens who defend themselves in the first place.  


Social Security warning

Fox Business News reports that if you’re on Social Security, high inflation means you could be receiving a COLA (cost of living adjustment) increase of up to 10.5% next year. While that sounds like good news, there are some serious drawbacks you need to be aware of.

https://www.foxbusiness.com/economy/inflation-may-hit-social-security-recipients-twice

The biggest problem is that Congress hasn’t raised the income levels at which your SS benefits become taxable since 1984. Every time there’s a cost-of-living increase, more Social Security recipients get pushed into higher tax brackets. With a 10.5% COLA, the number of seniors who’ll owe taxes on their benefits could jump by 10% in each of the next two years. So the government giveth, but the government taketh away, big time.

Worse, while new taxes could eat up much of the SS inflation adjustment, the higher income level could also put many seniors above the threshold to receive state benefits such as food stamps.

Washington will receive a windfall of tax revenue from struggling seniors on Social Security, but that’s not the way to fund the government. With inflation running wild and Social Security adjustments not even keeping up, both state legislatures and Congress (after the Republicans take over and Congress prioritizes helping regular Americans over political theater) need to immediately take action to bring our tax and benefit laws into sync with current fiscal reality.


The negative impact of “progressive” policies

Over the past few years, self-appointed advocates for black Americans have condoned rioting and looting, demanded that criminals who prey on black victims be released from jail, and promoted the idea of helping black communities by defunding and disbanding police forces (never mind that surveys showed black communities suffered the most from the rioting and looting, and residents there wanted more policing.) As leftist politicians listened to the activists, not the citizens, the suffering of black communities has gotten worse, and not just in the most obvious ways, like out-of-control theft and violent crime.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/crime-inflation-deal-devastating-one-two-blow-inner-city-communities

Amy Swearer of the Heritage Foundation told Fox News that the negative impact of “progressive” policies on low income and minority neighborhoods of big cities has been “immeasurable.” They include stores closing or reducing hours because of the high costs of theft and increased security…Stores that do remain having to charge higher prices to cover their costs and losses…Residents suffering PTSD…and kids afraid to walk to school. San Francisco residents who relied on Walgreen’s for food and medicine have no idea what they’re going to do after the stores shut down because of the high crime rate.

All of this is the result of leftist activists and politicians who wanted to destroy the system because they claimed they were "helping" black people. They are a perfect illustration of why Ronald Reagan said the 10 scariest words in the English language are “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help you.”


Memo to the White House

It’s not good PR to brag about gas prices dropping by 50 cents a gallon when they’re still $2 a gallon higher than they were when you took office.

Also, some of that is due to a temporary reduction because of releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (oil Biden wouldn’t have to release if Trump hadn’t filled the SPR, which Democrats attacked him for at the time.) That's not an accomplishment. It's like paying for your groceries out of your emergency savings.


Reason #10,347 To Send Your Kids to Trade School

Some woke college professors are demanding that archeologists stop classifying the remains of ancient humans by gender because there’s no way of knowing what gender they "identified" as. Also, they should stop telling us their race because it somehow “fuels white supremacy.”

Dr. Naomi Wolf fights back

Feminist author Dr. Naomi Wolf has slowly been red-pilled over the years, which naturally has led to her being attacked and censored. But it hasn’t shut her up. If anything, it’s emboldened her to keep pushing back. Now on the censorship-free platform Substack, Wolf has been doing a deep dive into the COVID pandemic, vaccine side effects and the surprising connections between the companies making the vaccines and the Chinese communist government. Her conclusion is that this was not a pandemic and a medical response, it was an act of war.

https://naomiwolf.substack.com/p/facing-the-beast

This is a long and jaw-dropping read, and obviously, I can’t vouch for the accuracy of her research. I’m sure a lot of “fact-checkers” will try to debunk it, but they’d better be able to refute her facts and numbers and not just launch ad hominem attacks. I know the media will try to suppress it, but they won’t be able to stop it from exploding on the Internet.

I am sharing it with you with the understanding that this is important food for thought that will be widely debated, so read it now and be informed when the fallout comes.

    RE; Naomi Wolf--this reminds me of Dr. Judy Miklovits--same bent, some of the same conclusions-and both of them being trashed for their research(and the documentation provided is pretty much irrefutable-IN BOTH CASES - {by honest folks})--
    Where did this virus come from?? --Doesn't matter--what really matters is the US was heavily involve in it's manufacture--an offshoot of the the obama debacle when it was revealed the US was secretly doing bioweapons research at Langely--the research was stopped and immediately moved offshore to-----China(they loved it--it was the perfect storm--"our adversaries are now asking for help to develop bio weapons to ostensibly defeat them--how cool is that? --we can help them develop this crap and we don't get the blame--plus we can prob get a lot of $ in grants to help(which is exactly what transpired)---(thank you dr fauci)
    Fast forward to the release of the manufactured virus---Obama was immune, Trump was blindsided--no one asked the relevant question as why this was researched in the first place, and why was the US involved in doing (driving)his research? Any normal human would know this crap would leak out----esp since it was formulated in a lab run by our adversaries--It was planned and executed!!--You trust a crook--you get what you pay for

    I read Naomi Wolf's article. I realize you aren't taking a position on its accuracy, but what I'm wondering is if the Chinese vaccinated their own people against Covid with those same vaccines. If so, I wouldn't really call it an act of war, even if the vaccines are as harmful as she says.

    One more note on those Social Security COLA tradeoffs: when they gave us an increase last year, they also raised the cost of our Medicare benefits, which are taken out of our SS check before we get it. We actually will end up receiving less money than we had the year before, and it puts us below the poverty level if we don't work to supplement it. So, another case of giving and the taking away! We are paying our bills, but are currently unable to save up money for emergencies. We drive as little as possible to save on gas, and we are eating what I call "The Biden Diet".

    "a better way to channel that outrage is to take it to the ballot box and throw these people out of power."

    And therein lies the problem . The sheeple keep reelecting the same jackasses and rinos who are ruining this country.
