  5. The Washington Free Beacon Inside the activists' backroom plan to revive the Obama-era deal[/] Alana Goodman February 1, 2023 A coalition of progressive activists bankrolled by George Soros, Charles Koch, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund are mounting a secret lobbying campaign to revive the Iran nuclear deal by tying it to the Iranian human rights movement, according to internal correspondence obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. Activists from groups including J Street, NIAC Action, the Open Society Foundations, Human Rights Watch, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund are coming together behind a plan to lobby lawmakers to use human rights bills as cover to revive negotiations for a nuclear deal with Iran. That's according to a January email sent from a J Street lobbyist to other activists and obtained by the Free Beacon. "I'm writing to suggest that this group convene virtually next week to brainstorm and hopefully find consensus on the elements of legislation to support the Iranian people that we could propose to diplomacy-oriented lawmakers," J Street's Dylan Williams wrote. "Given the usual need to be discrete [sic], the charged nature of the topic, and the outrageous threats against several members of this group, please do keep this initiative close-hold," he added. The activist groups "plan to pursue a dual-track legislative agenda, where they would find a way through legislation to give pro-deal Democrats cover by supporting Iranian women and Iranian human rights, without in any way challenging the revival of a nuclear deal, while at the same time building a coalition of members of the House and Senate willing to write a very public letter to the president urging him to keep the door to diplomacy over on the nuclear file," a source familiar with the discussions told the Free Beacon.

  8. Jan 28, 2023 Is Western culture allowing itself to be destroyed in the name of "tolerance"? The objective truths that society has relied on for thousands of years are being questioned into obscurity. The real-world consequences have been devastating. Children are being surgically mutilated as "gender-affirming care." PragerU personality Aldo Buttazzoni sits with Matt Walsh, host of "The Matt Walsh Show" and the filmmaker behind the hit documentary "What is a Woman?" to discuss.
  9. Jensen says Ellison’s office is now involved in fifth investigation of his medical license Jensen implied that since he is no longer a candidate for governor, an "opportunity" has arisen for "dissenting voices to be crushed." Evan Stambaugh February 1, 2023 Dr. Scott Jensen says the attorney general's office is now involved in the investigation into his medical license. (Scott Jensen/Facebook) Dr. Scott Jensen is claiming the office of Attorney General Keith Ellison is now involved in the fifth investigation of his medical license. The family physician and former gubernatorial candidate announced Monday evening that he had received from the attorney general’s office a “notice of conference” requesting his presence before the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice’s “complaint review committee.” In an explanatory letter dated Jan. 25, the Board of Medical Practice’s executive director, Ruth Martinez, wrote that the committee would be using “representatives of the Office of the Attorney General” as its legal representation during the meeting. A spokesperson for the attorney general’s office confirmed to Alpha News that it “provides legal representation to the Board of Medical Practice, as it does to more than 100 state agencies, boards, and commissions,” but could not comment on any of the board’s potential investigations. “This meeting is not a hearing, but rather a forum for the committee to have a face-to-face conversation with you about the concerns expressed in the Notice,” Martinez’s letter added. Jensen shared the announcement in a video posted to his Twitter account Monday evening. He slammed the state government’s notice as “raw politics” and “raw power.” (Snip)
  10. The Free Press Artists nationwide say they’re being put to an ideological litmus test. ‘It felt like somebody holding a gun to my head saying: your integrity or your life’s work.’ By Rikki Schlott February 1, 2023 Last month, we brought you John Sailer’s investigation into how diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives are supplanting the core mission of our nation’s universities—putting social justice ahead of the search for the truth. Today, The Free Press brings you our second story in this series, showing how these same DEI demands are transforming fine arts institutions and foundations across the country. The trouble began for Lincoln Jones, as it did for so many in the summer of 2020, with the black square. Jones, 47, is a longtime and celebrated Los Angeles–based choreographer. For 11 years he has run the American Contemporary Ballet company. His work has been featured regularly in The New York Times and Los Angeles Magazine, which called his 2012 ballet Serenade in A “a multifaceted snapshot of beautiful choreography crisply integrated with music.” By any measure, his career has been hugely successful. But Jones noticed things starting to change after May 2020, when George Floyd was murdered by Minnesota police. “All of a sudden, it felt like you had to make your practices, discussion, everything, not only about race but about diversity, equity, and inclusion.” He became increasingly unsettled by what he saw as coercive demands on speech and behavior. “I specifically don’t make art political, but the arts were becoming a tool of an ideology,” Jones, who is white, recalled. “It felt like something sacred was being violated by crossing politics and art—almost like crossing church and state.” Suddenly, in the summer of 2020, questions swirled over whether his company ought to post the black square, which signified support for Black Lives Matter, on their company’s official Instagram.

    Inside the Catholic civil war

    Late Journalist George Neumayr Warned: ‘The Clock On Catholic Civilization Is Nearing Midnight’ George Neumayr’s tireless attempts to sound the alarm on the corruption rotting the Catholic Church must not be lost in the ether.Carina Benton January 31, 2023 (Snip) Neumayr clearly intended this in jest. He knew he was no favorite among U.S. bishops, owing to his dogged pursuit of the corrupt and the compromised. He was always prepared to name names and get his hands dirty. In 2018, he revealed the location where serial sex abuser, pedophile, and disgraced former cardinal Theodore McCarrick was apparently in hiding after his fall from grace, a cushy mansion allegedly owned by the Archdiocese of Washington, and where auxiliary Bishop Mario Dorsonville was also supposed to be living. When Washington Post journalist Elizabeth Bruenig also repeatedly dropped by, looking for answers, a representative of the Archdiocese of Washington complained to her editor. But with the cat truly out of the bag, McCarrick was hurriedly banished to safer quarters in a distant Kansas friary. Late last year, Neumayr was giving Bishop Barry Knestout of the Diocese of Richmond, Virginia, a run for his money. In 2018, Knestout, an ally to McCarrick, appointed one Rev. Wayne Ball as pastor of St. Augustine Catholic Parish in Chesterfield, Virginia. According to the Richmond Times Dispatch, in December 2002, while pastor of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Norfolk, Virginia, Ball pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor sex offense after he was arrested with another Richmond man when they were sprung together in a parked car at a local park. Knestout did not make parishioners aware of this when he appointed Ball. Neumayr was understandably appalled when the United States Bishops, at their fall general assembly just last November, actually elected Knestout to chair the Committee on the Protection of Children and Young People. Neumayr demanded that Knestout resign or be removed from the position. (Snip)

    Pretty sure that the other sites where I post directly act in the same manner re comments. I know that the most views that I get come from a site that I point to from Free Republic. I know that only a small number of FReepers are members at the pointed-to site (though some comment at Free Republic).

  14. Jan 31, 2023 In this video, we are talking about Tyre Nichols, a young black man who was pulled out of his car by five other black officers and beaten to death, a tragedy that was caught on video. The officers' actions were nothing short of horrible and disgusting, and it is imperative that we discuss this issue. This is not just about Tyre Nichols, but about systemic issues within law enforcement that need to be addressed. We will delve into the context of the situation, and explore the root cause of this outrageous police brutality in America.

    I don’t believe the lack of recorded responses is unique to this platform, In general I believe it affects them all, especially if the likes etc are public and show up on timelines. People have lost jobs, friends etc because of what they share on social media. Some countries have laws against it. Can likes be anonymous? Thanks for the shares and Toons!
  18. UnHerd With Pope Benedict dead, the gloves are off In the early hours of January 2, the fully robed body of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI was transferred from the little monastery in the Vatican where he had died on the last day of 2022 to St Peter’s Basilica. There is a photograph of his remains being lifted into a vehicle. It’s shocking, but not because it shows a dead ex-pope. It’s true that today’s megapixel cameras conveyed the waxwork sheen of the corpse in unnerving detail, but that was more obvious when Benedict was lying in St Peter’s (and, anyway, we British are squeamish because we don’t open the casket for mourners). No: the shocking thing about that photo is that Benedict XVI, the greatest Catholic theologian of the 20th century as well as a revered pontiff, is being loaded into a white van. OK, so it’s an undertaker’s vehicle, and everyone is behaving with due reverence, but what was the Vatican thinking? The optics are terrible: Benedict looks like a piece of furniture. It’s hard to escape the suspicion that Pope Francis’s staff didn’t think Benedict merited a ceremonial hearse. At the Requiem Mass, Francis preached a homily in which he mentioned his predecessor’s name only once, and couldn’t be bothered to attend the interment in the crypt. Even the Vatican correspondent Robert Mickens, a veteran critic of Benedict’s, wrote that the Pope Emeritus “deserved better”. Cardinals from around the world were horrified. Now Francis is paying the price. No sooner was Benedict in his grave than we felt the first tremors of an earthquake that threatens to bury his successor alive. The Catholic civil war has entered a new phase. The Pope has been accused by his enemies of favouring heretics, foul-mouthed outbursts of temper, sucking up to dictators, sadistic manoeuvres against traditionalists, perverting the course of justice, a feeble grasp of Catholic doctrine and — not for the first time — of protecting a sex abuser. Catholic conservatives had been worried for years that when the ancient ex-pope finally died, Francis would be free to pursue his own agenda. For nearly 10 years he stopped short of formally changing Catholic teaching on divorce and homosexuality, restricting himself to giving a nudge and a wink to hardline liberals while missing no opportunity to give traditionalists a kicking. In a development that would have been unthinkable 30 years ago, Latin Mass parishes and communities are attracting disproportionate numbers of young priests and worshippers. Some of them cultivate a fogyish, holier-than-thou manner that gets up the nose of ordinary Catholics — but most of them are breathing new life into a moribund Church. Pope Francis loathes them. In 2020, with no warning, he banned many of their Latin Masses, and according to multiple sources, at a meeting with seminarians in December he ranted against “f%#%@#$ careerists who f%@# up the lives of others”. In his defence, perhaps the words were less vulgar in Spanish. Then again, it’s no secret in the Curia that the air turns blue when the Vicar of Christ is displeased.
  19. City Journal District attorneys must disclose witnesses’ credibility problems—but what happens when they themselves aren’t telling the truth? Under two Supreme Court cases, Brady v. Maryland and Giglio v. United States, prosecutors are constitutionally required to disclose to defense lawyers the credibility problems of potential prosecution witnesses, such as a history of lying or drug use. Police officers are justifiably warned that lying in any capacity can not only endanger their ability to testify but also result in termination. Progressive prosecutors in the United States have vastly expanded this technical disclosure requirement, using Brady and Giglio to justify putting police officers on publicly available “do not use” lists—sometimes with scant justification and affording them no procedural protections. Now, these same officials are being found to lack credibility. What are the legal ramifications of a court’s calling a prosecutor a liar? Philadelphia district attorney Larry Krasner, in a well-publicized example, tried to let a murderer’s death sentence be vacated. The defendant robbed and killed a couple, then left their infant daughter alone in a freezing house to die, though she was eventually rescued. At one point during the defendant’s various court proceedings, he staged a violent escape attempt from the Philadelphia courthouse. In proposing to vacate the defendant’s death sentence, Krasner’s office told a federal judge that his office had consulted with the victims’ family—the now-adult daughter whom the murderer had left to die—and that the defendant had adjusted well during his incarceration. The federal judge held a hearing and discovered that the D.A.’s office had been untruthful. In a stinging opinion, the judge denied Krasner’s request to vacate the death sentence, noting that the surviving daughter had never been consulted and that the defendant’s escape attempt was not disclosed to the court. In a separate sanctions opinion, the judge specifically found that two prosecutors and the entire Philadelphia D.A.’s office had breached their duty of candor to the court—lied. Krasner is not the only progressive prosecutor caught in such untruths. In Chicago, Cook County state’s attorney Kim Foxx has been called out for not telling the truth during the Jussie Smollett debacle. A special prosecutor—who eventually convicted Smollett for staging a fake hate-crime—identified in a report possible ethical violations by Foxx’s office regarding “false and/or misleading public statements made about the prosecution and resolution of the Initial Smollett case.” Foxx herself was identified in the report as having made “false and/or misleading” statements to the public about the evidence against Smollett when she initially decided to dismiss the case. Foxx’s response was to attack the special prosecutor and claim that, in convicting Smollett, “our justice system failed.”

    MHO is that they(whoever is pulling the strings) are hoping (health wise) that he hangs on till his term ends than put mega mega bucks (in ads and 'get out the liberal vote' any way possible) behind a selected candidate. Kamala would be a stupid stretch too far.

Judicial Watch received 11 pages of heavily redacted records from the U.S Department of Justice concerning communications of The New York Times to officials in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York (SDNY), showing the Times was tipped off about the November 6, 2021, FBI raids on the homes of Project Veritas founder/CEO James O’Keefe and then-Project Veritas journalists.
  22. Washington Examiner A federal judge in New Jersey on Tuesday iced a new law celebrated by liberals that would allow the state to shut down, and likely bankrupt, the firearms industry if a single gun were misused in a crime. U.S. District Court Judge Zahid Quraishi, a Biden appointee, said that he agreed with the gun industry that the New Jersey law was likely unconstitutional and granted the National Shooting Sports Foundation a preliminary injunction. The judge, in a 20-page opinion, said that the New Jersey law signed last summer by Gov. Phil Murphy ignored a larger federal law that protects the makers of guns — and other items — from being dragged into court when somebody misuses their product. Quraishi said that the federal 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act provides immunity to gun and ammo makers and sellers against the types of public nuisance laws Murphy championed.

    The press versus the president

    @Geee What are the chances This will make it into Corporate Media? I'd say (hope I'm wrong) somewhere between slim and None. I recall right after the 2016 election They were asking "How Did We Get This So Wrong?" That lasted about 2-3 days then Full Blown TDS kicked in. Something I've notice, They are throwing Grand Pa Joe under the bus. He has served his purpose, he's done. I would not surprise me to see Joe resign before the end of his term.
  25. Hulu's 1619 Project Docuseries Peddles False History Alas it is Still in Grade/Middle/High Schools. Remember when, shortly after it came out 100's of historians (Left/Center/Right) came out to denounce it? 1 day story in corporate media. What this means is We..Have..Work..To..Do!!! This is where we come into the picture/battle.
  26. (One mans Opinion freely given an worth ALMOST that much) They (Progressives) have moved too Far too Fast, on too many Fronts. Yes, Yes a lot of (ignorant) people are still buying what they are told BUT more and more people (around the world) are waking up.
