If you were educated in the West, your history lessons taught you that totalitarian regimes always end up ‘coming for your children’.

One need only to recall pictures of Adolf Hitler inspecting the child soldiers making a last stand for the Third Reich.

Or we can remember the famous story of Pavlik Morozov, one of many Stalinist-era teens who denounced his father and reported him to the NKVD for criticizing the regime.

The lesson that we were taught was that these totalitarians purposely weakened the bond between parents and child so as to neuter the family as a rival center of loyalty.

The state had to be the only organization that could command one’s devotion.

We scoffed at the notion that it could happen here.

But it is happening here.

One example is the overwhelming triumph of LGBTism, and now the fad of transgenderism is the triumph of the individual over the family, and the triumph of the state over it as well.

By the abuse of the education system turning children against their parents through approval of toxic ideologies, the state creates willing Janissaries, fanatical in their determination that its the family that is wrong.

Abigail Shirer has written an incredible piece on what happens when the state apparatus comes for your children in the name of transgenderism.

In some cases the ability of the state to wrestle away children as young as 13 from their families without the permission of the family is simply a 21st century version of the Devshirme (Blood-Tax), the Ottoman practice of kidnapping Christian boys, circumcising them, converting them to Islam, and training them to become Janissaries for the Sultan.

Critical Race Theory is now the new frontier of totalitarianism, lead by the same proponents of other toxic ideologies.

Only this time self hate and racial division are the platform the state attempts to steal the children.

Children you should be afraid of if they succeed.

YouTube censors Dr Noorchashm, a retired cardiac surgeon with a PhD in immunology, for “misinformation” – Nwo Report

https://nworeport.me/2021/06/14/youtube-censors-dr-noorchashm-a-retired-cardiac-surgeon-with-a-phd-in-immunology-for-misinformation/

The former Harvard teacher expressed dismay at the censorship.

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson slammed YouTube for removing his interview with a cardiology and immunology expert who said immunizing young people who have recovered from COVID is a mistake.

Dr. Hooman Noorchashm appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show where he said that vaccinating the youth was risky, calling it “a colossal error in public health judgment.” Dr. Noorchashm is a retired cardiac surgeon and Harvard Medical School professor, who also holds a PhD in immunology.

According to Noorchashm, young people should not be vaccinated, because of the fact that most of them have already been infected with the virus and recovered, meaning they already have antibodies. Additionally, young people are at a low risk of dying from the virus.

“If a person does not need or stand to benefit from a vaccine, or any medical treatment, they should not be given it because it only opens the door to harm,” he said.

“In addition, we’re doing something unprecedented during this pandemic, which is that we’re vaccinating people in the middle of an outbreak where a lot of people are either asymptomatically infected or have had recent infections.

“And that’s just a recipe for disaster as the data is bearing out.”

On Friday night’s show, Carlson explained that Noorchashm uploaded their exchange on YouTube, which was removed for violating the Google-owned platform’s policy on COVID-19 misinformation.

“Other parents have an absolute right to know these facts,” Carlson said. “But the tech monopolies would no longer allow that discussion.”

The video he uploaded on YouTube was taken down on Friday. YouTube sent him an email stating: “Our team has reviewed your content and unfortunately we think it violates our misinformation policy. We have removed the following content from YouTube.”

The doctor took to Twitter to announce the censorship, saying the video was removed because he was “contradicting expert consensus.” He then added that “in America one can no longer express a dissenting professional opinion or a personal experience.”

Carlson said: “For reasons that we can’t know for certain but are clearly sinister and certainly incompatible with the functioning democracy, Big Tech will no longer allow any questions about vaccines, even from Harvard trained immunologists, who are quoting government data.”

“They censor everything but happy talk and propaganda about vaccines, period,” he added before proceeding to give other cases of censorship of experts that have appeared on his show.

Trans propaganda has no place in our schools, fortunately parents and the government in the UK are waking up to this brainwashing — RT Op-ed

https://www.rt.com/op-ed/525914-trans-propaganda-schools-uk/

Top UK girls schools have been having guest speakers singing the praises of transgenderism and breast-binding without parents’ knowledge. Now groups like Stonewall and Mermaids are falling from grace, we must put a stop to this.

Stonewall, the LGBTQ equality charity, is haemorrhaging support. A number of high profile institutions, including the Equality and Human Rights Commission, Channel 4 television, Ofsted and the DVLA, have withdrawn from its diversity champions programme. The government’s Equalities Minister Liz Truss has urged Whitehall departments to cut ties with Stonewall and stop paying the lobby group money each year. Some of Stonewall’s founders, including Matthew Parris, have publicly criticised the organisation they helped establish. Parris argued that Stonewall should stick to LGB rights and steer clear of the transgender debate.

Good. Stonewall’s deliberate over-interpretation of equality laws has had a hugely detrimental impact on the workings of government departments, the Crown Prosecution Service, local councils, police forces and NHS trusts. Talks by feminist professors scheduled to take place at the University of Essex were cancelled following erroneous guidance from Stonewall, a recent investigation concluded. Stonewall’s insistence upon bizarre gender neutral language, such as replacing the word ‘mother’ with ‘parent who has given birth’, as well as edicts against single-sex spaces, are an undemocratic and elitist attempt to impose social change from on high.

ALSO ON RT.COMStonewall’s reign as the gender gestapo is coming to an end as it feels the heat for its ‘trans-women are women’ stance

Mermaids, a charity designed to support transgender children, fell from grace some time ago. It was dropped by the BBC’s Advice Line service last year. When High Court judges ruled that children under 16 were not able to give informed consent to treatment with puberty-blocking drugs, Mermaids faced scrutiny and criticism.

Anyone who believes in women’s rights, free speech, safeguarding and protecting children from unnecessary medical interventions, should welcome this growing awareness of the damage wrought by Stonewall and Mermaids.

But we still have a problem. Transgenderism is still very much with us. Institutions may be withdrawing from Stonewall but the woke view that gender identity is in our brains not our genitals and that sex is not something we are born with but must discover, now runs far deeper than Stonewall, Mermaids and all the other LGBTQ campaigning organisations with their rainbow flags and diversity champion schemes.

St Paul’s Girls’ School in London recently invited researchers from Princeton University’s human diversity lab to talk to pupils about changing sex. The speakers at the elite private school presented research suggesting there are positive outcomes for young girls who choose to live as boys. They talked to pupils about the ‘trans youth project’, a study of 300 boys and girls aged 3 to 12-years-old who ‘socially transitioned’, that is, they changed their names, pronouns, dress and hairstyles in order to live as the opposite sex. It has been reported that several pupils at St Paul’s wear boys’ clothes and have asked teachers to call them boys’ names.

According to the Sunday Times, the school sent a newsletter to parents proudly highlighting the talk which had been organised by senior pupils in the school’s Science Society and Spectrum, the LGBTQ+ Society. It said that Princeton’s research showing positive mental health outcomes for children who transition was particularly important in light of the recent bans on hormone therapy for under-18s.

ALSO ON RT.COMA new book, ‘Cynical Theories’, finally takes woke warriors to task over crazy ideas such as ‘being fat is the same as being gay’

This is not research but propaganda. It is a one-sided and dangerous narrative that runs counter to other studies that have highlighted mental health difficulties experienced by children seeking to change sex. One study conducted at the NHS’s Tavistock clinic found an increase in suicidal tendencies among under-16s receiving puberty-blocking treatment. And a former practitioner at Tavistock has gone on the record to argue that ‘trans-identified children’ need therapy, not just affirmation and drugs.

The event at St Paul’s comes off the back of another leading girls’ school having circulated a newsletter promoting breast binding and offering guidance on how best to engage in the practice. The LGBT society at Nonsuch High School for Girls in Surrey produced the newsletter which was distributed to pupils as young as 11.

Breast-binding can cause long term damage to young women. The NHS warns that breast-binding should only be a temporary measure because, “binders may strain the back and distort breast tissue, making surgical reconstruction less successful.” In a recent survey of transgender adults, over 97% of respondents claimed they had experienced negative effects from breast-binding. Almost three-quarters said the practice caused them pain, with some reporting rib fractures and shortness of breath.

But the Nonsuch High School newsletter ignored all of this and instead offered young girls advice on how to bind their breasts ‘safely’. This included links to websites explaining that if binding proved painful, surgical procedures that remove breast tissue could be an option to create a “more masculine” appearance.

At both St Paul’s and Nonsuch High School, it is pupils who are members of their school’s LGBTQ+ societies who have taken the initiative to invite speakers or compile newsletters raising awareness about gender-transitioning. This begs the question: where are the adults?

ALSO ON RT.COMIf Forstater, sacked over transgender comments, loses tribunal appeal, no one with a job can claim to have free speech

Why, in neither school, did a teacher not have the confidence to say this material is simply not appropriate for young girls who may be impressionable and confused about their identity. It seems that a fear of being accused of transphobia still stands in the way of child protection.

It is great that Stonewall and Mermaids are, at long last, getting their comeuppance. But sadly we still have a long way to go before transgenderism is kicked out of public life altogether.

Sharri Markson Reveals New Footage From Inside Wuhan Lab Showing Live Bats and Research, Disproving Lies From WHO – The Last Refuge Prize Worthy Reporting from the Conservative Tree House & Sky News Australia – Trump:The American Years

In this video investigative report Sharri Markson reveals how the Wuhan Institute of Virology kept live bats in cages with new footage from inside the facility. This footage proves the denials from World Health Organization investigators were false. The WHO previously said any suggestion the Wuhan lab was conducting SARS experiments on bats was a “conspiracy”.Additionally, all of the 15,000 bat research files were removed from the Wuhan Lab in September of 2019 right before the Pandemic exploded on the world.

Teacher placed on leave for opposing transgender pronouns sues Virginia school district – Zero Lift-Off

https://lawrencemorra.com/2021/06/13/teacher-placed-on-leave-for-opposing-transgender-pronouns-sues-virginia-school-district/

Spot-On! This article says it like it is, and we see the results of the dumb-down policy that’s been taking place in our school systems for decades! But so now they want to botch things up even more so we will eventually have a majority of idiots running loose in the streets waiting for Big Brother or the Communist leadership to toss them a bone!

Here is what I had to start out saying to point out why we have this madness in the country; and a total fool in the White House!

And so this is what the Criminals of America in high positions and politics along with multitudes of foolish completely dysfunctional liberals and many other confused simpletons illegally and fraudulently made sure they assured his victory.
That person is obviously Crazy Joe Biden. I’ll leave the lick to this article for your convenience!

Thank you.

SHAMEFUL! Facebook Skewered For Citing Disgraced Expert In Fact-Checks | PA Pundits – International

https://papundits.wordpress.com/2021/06/12/shameful-facebook-skewered-for-citing-disgraced-expert-in-fact-checks/

By Alexander Hall ~

So-called experts advising Big Tech are experiencing a crisis of credibility as the once-condemned laboratory leak theory rises in popularity.

Big Tech’s initiative that Americans must listen to the experts has sounded more ridiculous and ill-informed by the day. RedState Managing Editor Jennifer Van Laar reported in a June 11 blog: “The man who worked on coronaviruses with Wuhan Institute of Virology’s ‘Bat Woman’ Dr. Shi Zhengli as long ago as 2013, whose company gave WIV $800,000 in funding to study bat coronaviruses from 2014-2019, and who served as a Facebook COVID fact-checker, is bitterly clinging to the narrative that the pandemic originated at the wet market in Wuhan.”

The same article recounted how the aforementioned expert cited in fact-checking, EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak, also reportedly spoke absurdities during a 60 Minutes interview:

Daszak, incredibly, was a member of the [World Health Organization] “mission,” and believes that the group made a big discovery during their time in China – the 1,000-mile ‘pathway’ the virus took from bat caves in southern China to Wuhan. If that were true, why haven’t we heard about it before now?

60 Minutes summarized his claim that the pathway led “not to the lab in Wuhan but from wildlife farms in southern China directly to the wet market in Wuhan, the Huanan Seafood Market.”

Fox News torched Daszak for his relation with one of Facebook’s fact-checking partners and his refusal to humor the lab narrative:

Daszak was also cited by Facebook fact-checking partner Science Feedback in a February 2020 post headlined, “Scientific evidence indicates virus that causes COVID-19 infection is of natural origin, not the result of human engineering.”

The fact-check entry from Science Feedback did in fact cite Daszak by name in condemning the lab leak theory:

Peter Daszak, epidemiologist and president of the EcoHealth Alliance who has collaborated with WIV researchers, warned during an interview with the journal Science: “These rumors and conspiracy theories have real consequences, including threats of violence that have occurred to our colleagues in China.”

The COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath have appeared to be a referendum on trusting experts to set policy or decide who must be censored.

The House Judiciary GOP verified account tweeted an open letter from Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-OH) and James Comer (R-KY) condemning Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for coordinating with Dr. Anthony Fauci.

In a damning indictment, the letter recounted: “Facebook amplified sources like the World Health Organization—even though such sources have proven to be conflicted and unreliable in the past.” The World Health Organization misinformed nations around the globe that there was “no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission” of COVID-19 as late as Jan. 14, 2020.

Conservatives are under attack. Contact Facebook headquarters at 1-650-308-7300 and demand that Big Tech mirror the First Amendment while providing transparency, clarity on “hate speech” and equal footing for conservatives. If you have been censored, contact us at the Media Research Center contact form, and help us hold Big Tech accountable.

Russia Defends the West Against Insanity | The Wentworth Report

https://wentworthreport.com/2021/06/12/russia-defends-the-west-against-insanity/

Russia Defends the West Against Insanity. By Srdja Trifkovic.

Last week, [Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov] spoke eloquently about the most important issue of our time, anti-white racism in the United States and the lamentable consequences of political correctness “taken to the extreme.” …

Lavrov accused the United States of seeking to spread “a cultural revolution” across the globe. A powerful arm of the project, Hollywood, changed its rules so that everything it produces reflects the diversity of modern society, he said: “I’ve seen Black people play in Shakespeare’s comedies. Yet I don’t know when there will be a white Othello. … This is absurd.”

It is literally impossible for the foreign minister of any Western country — in North America, Western Europe, or Oceania — to make a statement of this kind. Even if he or she were to do so in a fit of suicidal madness or cathartic honesty — both well-nigh unimaginable among the Western ruling elite — a hysterical outcry on every printed page and every flickering screen would soon subject them to cancellation. The criminal would be a permanent non-person par excellence. …

Common ground (Trump was onto it):

Russia’s then-ambassador to NATO, Dmitry Rogozin, charted a grand strategy of sanity for all of us over a decade ago, in an interview with the Russia Today television channel:

“There is a new civilization emerging in the Third World that thinks that the white, northern hemisphere has always oppressed it and must therefore fall at its feet now. … If the northern civilization wants to protect itself, it must be united: America, the European Union, and Russia. If they are not together, they will be defeated one by one.”

Rogozin’s ideas were based on an appreciation of the commonalities between Europeans and their overseas descendants — a diagnosis as precise as it is abhorrent to Western elites. It shows that, in all key indicators rooted in respect for conservative principles, Russia is freer than the West. Again, no American or EU diplomat could dare to make such a statement, even if he shared the sentiment, and hope to remain in his post after making it. …

Ideologues will deny it, but in the decades to come Europe, Russia, and America will be in similar mortal peril. In the end there will be no grand synthesis, no cross-fertilization, and certainly no peaceful coexistence, between the North and the Third World. There will be “kto kogo” (who will overtake whom?).

The short-term prospects for fostering a sense of unity among Europeans — Eastern, Western, and American — are grim. They will remain so as long as the regimes of all major Western states continue to be controlled by an elite class hostile to its own roots and cultural heritage, and therefore instinctively Russophobic to boot.

Russia’s position on the existential issue of our era fits what I have often cried for in these pages: a paradigm shift in the West that would pave the way for a genuine Northern Alliance of Russia, Western Europe, and North America, as all three face similar existential threats in the decades ahead. We cannot know if this alliance will materialize, but we do know that, if it doesn’t, our civilization will be in peril.

A good point. And wildly political incorrect.

Race consciousness is now being forced upon whites, who are always the least race-conscious of the races.

A “Slippery, Bootlicking A.G.”? The Media Goes Silent As Garland Adopts Previously Denounced Positions Of Barr – JONATHAN TURLEY

https://jonathanturley.org/2021/06/11/a-slippery-bootlicking-a-g-the-media-goes-silent-as-garland-adopts-previously-denounced-positions-of-barr/

by JONATHAN TURLEY

Below is my column in The Hill on the recent decisions of Attorney General Merrick Garland to support the prior positions taken by his predecessor, William Barr, on issues ranging from the Lafayette Park protests to immigration to withholding information related to the Mueller investigation. Positions that were once denounced by media and legal experts as raw partisanship have now been adopted by the Biden Administration with little acknowledgement from those same figures.

Here is the column:

When Joe Biden nominated Merrick Garland to be attorney general, many — including me — heralded Garland as an honorable, apolitical judge who would follow the law. He was not, the Washington Post editors insisted, “a lackey who will serve as the president’s personal attorney” like Donald Trump‘s AGs. Garland has indeed followed the law, but some are not thrilled by where it has taken him.

President Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) has adopted some of the same positions taken by the Trump administration that a host of legal and media experts once denounced. This week, the DOJ sought to replace itself as the defendant in a lawsuit against Trump brought by writer E. Jean Carroll, who alleges that Trump raped her. The week before, it sought to dismiss a Black Lives Matter lawsuit over the clearing of Lafayette Park during a June 2020 protest.

This time last year, both positions were cited by legal and media experts as grotesque examples of then-Attorney General Bill Barr’s political bias. Now, those same experts are silent as Garland takes the same positions Barr took in federal court.

Garland is free, of course, to reject prior legal positions of Barr, but he has reached the same conclusion as his predecessor on several points of law thus far. In yet another adherence to Trump-era policy, the DOJ will defend opposing the ability of Puerto Ricans to receive social security disability benefits before the Supreme Court. Likewise, Garland agreed with Barr that a DOJ memo finding no legal basis for an obstruction charge against Trump should not be released to the public in its entirety.

Is Garland a Trumpist mole, part of some “deep state” resistance to his own president? Or is the more likely alternative that some in the media and many others in politics or the law knowingly distorted past legal controversies to use those as political fodder against Trump?

The general lack of media criticism — or even coverage — has never been more striking than with the latest filing in the Carroll case. In November 2019, Carroll sued Trump, claiming he defamed her when he denied sexually assaulting her. She alleges that Trump raped her in a Manhattan department store dressing room in the 1990s.

The Biden administration has told the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit that it — rather than Trump — should be the defendant because his comments were made as part of his official capacity as president. Said the Biden DOJ: “Courts have thus consistently and repeatedly held that allegedly defamatory statements made in that context are within the scope of elected officials’ employment — including when the statements were prompted by press inquiries about the official’s private life.”

That is the identical position taken by then-AG Barr last year.

A district court rejected that effort, and the Trump administration appealed. While I disagree with the treatment of any such statements as part of a president’s official duties, I stated at the time that there was support for the position in the governing federal statute and case law.

However, some media outlets featured an array of experts who denounced Barr’s legal move. Vanity Fair was typical of the coverage with a column titled “Bill Barr Sinks To New Low, Uses Justice Department To Try To Kill Trump’s Rape Defamation Suit.” In it, writer Bess Levin explained that the move proved that Barr was “willing not just to do [Trump’s] dirty work but to do it completely out in the open and without a scintilla of shame.” Citing the DOJ effort to replace Trump as a party in the suit, Levin declared that experts confirmed that “this special arrangement is wholly unique to Trump and his slippery, bootlicking A.G.” She cited University of Texas law professor and CNN legal analyst Steve Vladeck and an array of other experts cited in a New York Times article. The Times wrote how “some current and former Justice Department lawyers, speaking on the condition of anonymity, echoed Mr. Vladeck’s concerns, saying they were stunned that the department had been asked to defend Trump in Ms. Carroll’s case.”

One would expect that these same media outlets and experts would denounce Garland now as another “slippery, bootlicking A.G.” doing Trump dirty work. But … no.

The same is true with the Biden DOJ ‘s recent filing in the BLM lawsuit. Last year news stories stated as fact that Barr ordered Lafayette Park to be cleared of protesters to make way for Trump’s controversial photo op before St. John’s Church. From the outset, the Trump/Barr conspiracy claim had little support, and soon there were reports contradicting it. As I explained in my testimony to Congress on the protest, the plan to clear the park area to establish a wider perimeter was due to an extreme level of violence by protesters over the preceding two days, including the injury of a high number of federal officers. The violence was so great that Trump had to be moved to a bunker. (An IG investigation debunked the conspiracy theory). None of that mattered. Viewers on CNN, MSNBC, and other news outlets wanted to hear that it was all a conspiracy. Experts like Vladeck continued to claim that Barr ordered federal officers “to forcibly clear protestors in Lafayette Park to achieve a photo op for Trump.”

Now the Biden administration is arguing that the BLM case should be dismissed. Moreover, it is advancing the same position as Barr’s DOJ that “Presidential security is a paramount government interest that weighs heavily in the Fourth Amendment balance.” The DOJ’s counsel, John Martin, added that “federal officers do not violate First Amendment rights by moving protesters a few blocks, even if the protesters are predominantly peaceful.”

The Biden administration is not reluctant to change positions in litigation when it disagrees with the prior administration. However, in these cases the Biden administration insists that Barr was right on the law, even if it disagrees with Trump’s statements themselves. That would likely come as a surprise to many viewers of CNN or MSNBC.

Reasonable people can disagree about such legal disputes — but the point of much of the past coverage was that there was no real dispute, just raw political abuse by Barr.

As we watch the anger and divisions growing in our nation, we need to be honest about the role that media coverage continues to play in our age of rage. It is little surprise that many are enraged when legal experts state as a fact that the Justice Department is acting without legal basis; that makes for undeniably good ratings. Now that the ratings have receded, however, the law has again emerged — with the Biden administration in full agreement with its predecessor’s legal arguments.
