The political left are a rather tyrannical lot.  Their primary function in life is to force everyone else to follow their warped and twisted world view. Their preferred mode of operation is to infect all levels of government with their ideology, then use government force to coerce everyone else to follow their madness. 

Transgenderism is the most perfect example of this.  Progressives have been using government coercion to try and ensure everyone in the United States plays along with this mass psychosis.

It is bad enough when progressives cram this ideology down the throats of ordinary Americans.  It is absolutely unconscionable when they force religious institutions to comply because that would be a very direct violation of the Free Exercise of Religion Clause of the First Amendment.

This headline made me nauseous when is first read it.  It also made be happy because this small college was fighting back: Tiny Christian College Goes on Offensive as Biden Tries Forcing Female Students to Share Dorm Rooms – Even Showers – with Men (

In one of his first official acts in the Oval Office, Biden signed an executive order that redefined the terms “sex,” “sexual orientation” and “gender identity.”

Three weeks later, Biden’s Department of Housing and Urban Development issued new rules requiring schools to open their women’s dormitories — showers and all — to men who “identify” as women.

No exemptions were allowed, even for religious institutions.

The colleges justification for fighting back was right on point.

The Christian college, located in Point Lookout, Missouri, filed a lawsuit against Biden and his administration, arguing that the historical interpretation of the Fair Housing Act confirms that “sex” means biological sex.

The college also argued that not only does the Biden executive order violate the school’s constitutional right to “operate consistently with their religious beliefs,” but also that there should have been a public notice and comment period before such a drastic change was made.

This next quote proves just how far from the original meaning of the Constitution the entire federal court system has shifted.

In September, a three-judge panel from the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed the case and denied a petition for the matter to be heard by the full court.

College of the Ozarks and its law firm, Alliance Defending Freedom, responded in February by asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case.

This next paragraph fills me with hope.

Recognizing the high stakes involved in the case, a number of other Christian colleges have submitted friend-of-the-court briefs supporting the suit brought by the College of the Ozarks. Nineteen states and numerous advocacy groups have done likewise.

A federal judge provided proof that the Federal Bureau of Investigation under Joe Biden spied on hundreds of thousands of Americans.  This is an exceedingly egregious violation of the Fourth Amendment.  Sadly this is far from an isolated incident,   It seems like similar instances have occurred on almost of monthly basis.

No occupant of the White House has proved to be more hostile to the fundamental rights and freedoms of the American people.

This article provides all of the shocking details of this massive abuse of the Fourth Amendment: New Revelations of Spying Just Made the FBI’s Week Even Worse (

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is under fire yet again this week after a federal judge revealed the government agency illegally spied on hundreds-of-thousands of Americans without a warrant between 2020 and 2021. 

The revelation came just one day after three FBI agents testified before the House Judiciary Committee and Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government as whistleblowers concerned about the mass surveillance of Americans without proper cause or a warrant. The agents had their security clearances revoked and faced retaliation after bringing the issue to superiors. 

This mass spying by the FBI was conducted under the FISA Court process.  I have been a very harsh critic of the entire FISA process because It is deeply unconstitutional and ripe for abuse.  I never believed the FISA Court would restrict its spying to foreign targets.  I have been proved right repeatedly.

The FBI supposedly did implement FISA reforms to prevent abuse.   These reforms did absolutely nothing

On Monday the FBI claimed FISA reforms had been implemented to prevent political targeting or abuse of the FISA process. The FBI released a statement after Special Counsel John Durham published a lengthy report showing extensive misconduct at the Bureau during the 2016 presidential election, including rampant FISA abuse and tampering of warrant applications issued against Trump campaign officials. 

The FISA Court system violates four provisions ot the Fourth Amendment.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

FISA warrants are issues en mass instead of on specific individuals that are named.  No probable cause is given.  No oath if affirmation is given.  The place being searched on not listed.

Hardcore leftists such as Joe Biden and Barack Obama live in a fanciful universe that has less to do with reality than Dr. Seuss.  In the leftist fantasy land anthropomorphic climate change is real and the greatest threat to mankind.  The only option that could possibly stop this chimeral threat ts the transition of the entire energy production of the world from fossil fuels to wind and solar.  The most ludicrous belief that leftist hold is the belief that this insanity could possibly work.

Barack Obama began this madness with a war on coal fired power plants.  The Biden regime is taking this insanity to a whole new level by banning everything else: Biden wants to kill electric power from natural gas – American Thinker

The Supreme Court last summer blocked the Obama Clean Power Plan, which would have forced a generation-shift in electric power to renewables from coal. The Biden EPA’s plan would do that and more by other means that are also probably unconstitutional. … Section 111 of the Clean Air Act says the EPA can regulate pollutants from stationary sources through the “best system of emission reduction” that is “adequately demonstrated.” Yet the EPA wants to require that fossil-fuel plants adopt carbon capture and green hydrogen technologies that aren’t currently cost-effective or feasible, and may never be. Only one commercial-scale coal plant in the world uses carbon capture to reduce emissions, and no gas-fired plants do.

Biden’s EPA knows full well that it flouts the Clean Air Act by mandating that coal- and gas-fired plants adopt regulations based on technologies that are not, and may not ever become, “cost-effective or feasible.”  Clearly, the goal is to eliminate fossil fuel electric power generation:

The EPA has been stacking burdensome rules onto coal plants, including three others since March, with the goal of forcing them into premature retirement. … “By presenting all of those rules at the same time to the industry,” EPA Administrator Michael Regan said last year, “the industry gets a chance to take a look at this suite of rules all at once and say, ‘Is it worth doubling down in investments in this current facility? Or should we look at that cost and say now it’s time to pivot and invest in a clean energy future?'”

This madness will completely destroy the economy of the United States.  Ayn Rand wrote a couple of fantastic books where the collectivists employed plans just like this latest nonsense announced by our senile faux president.  The novels are Atlas Shrugged an Anthem.

For decades the political has left waged a guerilla style war here in the United States.  It was a cultural war fought with destructive ideas rather than the type of war fought with guns and other physical weapons.  It was a war they fought unopposed because most of us on the political right did not think this conflict was worth our attention.  We were so very wrong.

A small minority of us Conservatives and Libertarians saw what was taking place and tried desperately to raise the alarm.  We were all but ignored.

Now that this culture war is all but won by the Marxist Left, a sizable percentage of those of us on the Right have finally taken notice and have begin to fight back.  The hugely effective boycott of Bud Light is strong evidence that we have effective weapons in our arsenal.

The political left has targeted children from the very beginning.  This article explains the two fold rational behind this.

Leftists aren’t building a robust generation of people who can fight wars and control countries. Instead, they are creating a broken generation of people who will be physically and mentally dependent on government care for the rest of their lives.

Lenin understood how important children are to any revolution. The most famous quotation attributed to him is, “Give us the child for eight years, and it will be a Bolshevik forever.” An alternative is, “Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.”

As you can see from this article, the strategy employed by the left was devious and effective.

Much as America’s enemies historically used its (formerly) free press and the nature of its open society against it, Constitution-disdaining leftists used conservatives’ adherence to the Constitution — and its mandate for limited government, the rule of law, and equal justice under that law — against them in their now successful bid to get control over virtually all of the country’s institutions and levers of power.

They now ruthlessly use the self-same institutions they used to protest — but now own — to spy on, castigate, deplatform, silence, slander, “cancel,” and even incarcerate those with whom they disagree.  They eschew dialogue and debate and simply scream “racist!” or “transphobe!” at any- and everyone who dares to dissent from their preposterous narrative.

Corporate media proved to be the most effective arsenal the left employed in this culture war.

IF you can control the information flow, you can control an entire society. Gone are the days of trusting your reporters and news outlets to provide unbiased and factual pieces to keep you informed on the state of your country.

Perhaps I’ve watched too many “X-Files” episodes, but I now embrace the same principle of Fox Mulder: trust no one. To get to the bottom of any story as a citizen, you’d have to read reports of the same incident on at least 30 different outlets to get a sliver of truth.

The hard reality is that traditional media outlets have been not just complicit, but happy little manipulation warriors bent on ensuring your mind and views fall in line with their chosen narrative.

Over the last decade, their narrative of choice: You’re a racist. 

According to Lexus Nexus, there has been a marked increase in specific phrases and words since 2014. As an example, below is a taste of some of these terms: white privilege, system racism, diversity and inclusion, unconscious bias, whiteness, intersectionality, diversity training, police brutality

How sharp is this increase? For example, between 2011 and 2019, the New York Times and Washington Post increased using words like ‘racist,’ ‘racists,’ and ‘racism’ increased by over 700% and 1,000%, respectively. 

Furthermore, between 2013 and 2019, the same two publications increased their usage of terms like ‘systemic racism,’ ‘structural racism,’ and ‘institutional racism’ by 1,000%. And during that same timeframe, the two liberal heavyweights of print used ‘white privilege’ and ‘racial privilege’ at an increased rate of 1,200% and 1,500%, respectively.

College campuses have also been the primary battlefields where this culture war has been fought and won by the left.  Checkout this article.

Hundreds of professors at the University of North Carolina signed a public letter Tuesday opposing legislation that would require university students to take courses on America’s government and founding documents.

The 673 UNC Chapel Hill professors revealed the public letter Tuesday, arguing the new courses and another bill in the North Carolina House of Representatives would constitute an infringement on the university’s “academic freedom.”

The first piece of legislation, House Bill 96, would require students to take a 3 credit-hour course covering America’s founding and history. Required reading for the course would include the U.S. Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Emancipation Proclamation, at least five essays from the Federalist Papers, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter from Birmingham Jail and the Gettysburg Address.

The author if this American Thinker article has it absolutely correct.

Put simply, the big mistake in thinking the culture war isn’t the most critical issue heading into 2024 is that all of American politics is now one big culture war. The culture war is the only issue because the cultural war is everything now. When one side stakes its claim to political power on offering abortion up until birth and transgender operations for 8-year-olds, and holds out these policies as proof of its moral authority, we’re way past arguing over how to get the economy back on track. There’s no going back to that kind of politics.

Tucker Carlson hit on this at the end of his big speech at Heritage recently. He compared the values of the political left to the values of the Aztecs, who sacrificed children to their bloodthirsty gods — and he wasn’t wrong.
