There is one fundamental divide, inter alia, in US politics between means and ends which specifically turns on process or means for the US Supreme Court. For Democrats everything is political.

Why All the Panic Porn When Covid Cures Exist?

Cures for COVID-19 already exist, yet within the scientific community doctors who use these cures – and claim out loud to have success with them in something as important as saving lives – are written off as “quacks” peddling conspiracy theories. Then they’re often silenced.

At a summit last month known as America’s Frontline Doctors, a group of medical professionals put their long-standing reputations on the line by claiming in no uncertain terms that COVID has a cure in the form of Hydroxychloroquine, Zinc and Azithromycin (Z-pac). Their video was removed from YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites who placed in their stead Orwellian little messages along the lines of: “This video has been removed for violating Community Guidelines.”


Lockdowns Are Destructive and Wrong

In an extremely prophetic article on the 8th August titled, “What a Hopeless Bunch of Sheep We Are,” Christie, who writes for the BFD, relayed this anecdote:

I know someone who came out of quarantine in an Auckland hotel a couple of weeks ago. He had the required tests on Day 3 and Day 12 but was intermingling with people at all stages of their quarantine throughout his stay. Just to clarify, on Day 13, he was intermingling with people who were on Day 2 of their quarantine, and were, so far, untested.

Does that sound like a recipe for community transmission to you? Because it certainly does to me.

Noting that Ashley Bloomfield was telling us to stock up on masks, though there were no cases of community transmission in New Zealand as he gave that advice, Christie reported that mask manufacturers such as Christchurch company Earth Sea Sky were suddenly receiving a lot of orders to the tune of “120 orders per hour.”

Nathan, a Tribute

Lindsay Perigo has told me ‘due diligence’ requires that I read James S. Valliant’s 2005 book, The Passion of Ayn Rand's Critics, a lengthy critical review of Barbara Branden’s 1986 biography, The Passion of Ayn Rand. Valliant’s critique was largely based on previously unpublished segments of Ayn Rand’s private journals to which Leonard Peikoff, Rand’s legal heir and the journals’ owner, had given Valliant unprecedented access – with rather obvious intent. On the basis of Valliant’s book, Linz claims Nathaniel Branden was a fraud and a charlatan.

New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference

STARTS

The New Zealand Catholic Bishops understand and respect their duty of leadership, not only of Catholics but of all persons, in matters of moral governance. Given that, it is incumbent upon them, the Bishops say, to give appropriate guidance in the face of an imminent General Election. And the Bishops acknowledge that, in times of unusual political conditions, aggravated by the uncertainty wrought by the coronavirus crisis, their guidance might also be unusually specific.

The Bishops have expressed real concern in regard to what could appear to be dangerous legislative and regulatory moves already taken, and further, perhaps even worse, opportunities for the enemies of democracy, of freedom and of life itself.

During the 2016 U.S election debates between candidates Trump and Clinton, Hillary began to spin the narrative around what would later become the Russia collusion hoax.

Often referring to Trump as “Putin’s puppet,” Clinton also made common reference to Russian election meddling and claimed that the election of Trump to the White House would be a great gift to Putin.

Hillary knew this to be orchestrated nonsense.

Liberals Go After Tucker Carlson, Again

30th July 2020

Liberals have been viciously going after Tucker Carlson ever since his show on Fox News turned into a runaway success for the network over the last four years.

In November of 2018, after a left-wing journalist posted Carlson’s home address online, an ANTIFA mob congregated outside his house chanting, “Tucker Carlson, we will fight, we know where you sleep at night.” The group who called themselves “Smash Racism D.C.,” tweeted out photos of the Carlson property and its address. This is the same group who chased Senator Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi out of a restaurant during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings. They told Cruz that he “was not safe.”

In just one interview yesterday evening, a thrilled Judith Collins reminded New Zealanders that there still happens to be a few adults left in the room of politics.

Strong and confident in front of the press, while still being able to retain a sense of humour – “I think it might be time for a drink,” Judith, not Jacinda, is the woman who could breathe some fresh air back into this stale country.
