One of the great benefits of my former abode in Delray Beach, Florida was that the best pizza place in town, Mellow Mushroom, was a five minute walk from my front door (four minutes from the garage side). A former neighbor just gave me the sad news that Mellow Mushroom had closed down due to “staffing issues.” “COVID relief benefits,” said the manager of the family-owned franchise, paid employees more to stay at home than they could make working at the restaurant, so he simply could not stay in business.
God forbid that such an awful event should also befall the Mellow Mushroom in Auburn, Alabama.2:04 pm on September 16, 2021 Email Thomas DiLorenzo
…Sheriff Chad Bianco [said,], “…I will not enforce the vaccine mandate on Sheriff’s Department employees.
“In November of 2018 the residents of Riverside county elected me as their Sheriff. I stood before God and swore an oath to the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the State of California,” the sheriff continued. “It is my responsibility to protect the public from the criminal element, as well as being the last line of defense from tyrannical government overreach. The government has no ability and no authority to mandate your health choices. As your Sheriff I have an obligation to guard your liberty and freedom.”
I am stunned speechless at this clarion defence of our inalienable rights—and speechlessness doesn’t afflict me too often.
Thanks to Vinnie Terranova for introducing us to this hero.
OK, recovered my verbal powers. While we envy those folks fortunate enough to live in Sheriff Bianco’s district, neither they nor we should depend on any official to protect liberty. No doubt this lawman would be the first to admit that he cannot battle the totalitarians alone. Second, it’s up to each of us to secure the blessings of freedom to ourselves and our posterity. No one can give us liberty: we must wrest our rights from the tyrants ourselves. How? By mocking the despots, flouting every their every diktat, and holding high the principles of liberty.12:39 pm on September 16, 2021 Email Becky Akers

I took a buyout from my former employer, Loyola University Maryland, and retired from there in July of 2020. Apparently, no one informed Human Resources of this. I got a phone message from them yesterday informing me that the time to prove to them that I have been injected with the experimental, gene-altering, heart attack and blood clot-causing, “transhumanism” drug has passed. I was then threatened with “disciplinary action” including “termination.” Ha!
There are Catholic high schools in Baltimore that won’t accept students with tattoos because they believe that Catholicism forbids the desecration of your body in that way. Loyola University, on the other hand, demands that everyone desecrates his body with the Biden shot or else. Loyola University Maryland long ago abandoned Catholicism in favor of what they call “Catholic social teaching,” which is essentially their euphemism for cultural Marxism. That’s why, as a former student (class of 2006) informed me in an email last week, they celebrate the well-known organization that advocates the destruction of the traditional, nuclear family, organizes riots, arson and looting, and boasts of being “trained Marxists” with giant Black Lives Matter banners on the quad in the middle of the campus.
Some years ago the BB&T Foundation offered to send me enough copies of Ayn Rand’s famous novel Atlas Shrugged to hand out to every undergraduate business student. The university administration told me that I was not allowed to accept the gift because Ayn Rand was an atheist and that would be against Catholic social teaching. I responded with an email to the dean at the time asking him if: 1) That means that the writings of Karl Marx, another famous atheist, would no longer be permitted on campus; and 2) If they intended on doing a survey of the religious views, if any, of all the textbook authors whose books are used in Loyola classrooms. I got no response, just a repeat of their dictatorial demand.7:18 am on September 16, 2021 Email Thomas DiLorenzo
“A former emergency room nurse shares her last frontline story,” says Monnie Matthews, summarizing an account he found on Gab. “She quit her profession after this experience, and who could blame her? When will the murderers be brought to justice?”
Ha! Not until all of us rise up and arrest them.
Here’s the nurse’s heartbreaking report of two teens and a “young child” now motherless, thanks to Falsi and every gutless doctor who parrots that nincompoop, the Usurper and his administration of sodomites, cranks and misfits, Big Pharma, the Marxists and globalists, the Deep State, the corporate media, and yes, Parson Goat, who, far from denouncing this evil, continues to promote it:

There was a week in the early summer that I was actually considering getting the vax…I was falling prey to the propaganda to be honest, and knew that eventually it would be mandatory in my field (although I DIDN’T think it was a mere month or two away from that!)…
Then I had a post cardiac arrest patient; medic’s report was that she had dropped while cooking dinner, they had gotten pulses back but she was fixed and dilated…we kept losing her in the ER, but finally after the 8th round of epi we got her back and kept her there. Got her to CT before transport to ICU. Within 30 mins of arrival there she coded again. And again. And again. Her family called it and allowed her to go.
50 yr old mother with a young child and two teenagers that I literally picked up off the floor after bringing them into the ER to see her and start what I knew would be their final goodbye.
Bilateral hemorrhagic pulmonary embolisms (bleeding blood clots in her lungs)…hemoglobin of 5. 2nd covid vax three days prior. Apparently had been complaining of chest pain for two days. Family was worried, but she wouldn’t come to ER. Only PMH was hypertension.
A woman bled out in front of my eyes after the vax. There was NOTHING I could do to save her. She haunts me. SHE is the reason I left nursing rather than getting the vax. So fuck anyone who tries to shame me or pressure me. I will NOT comply. This is my hill. And I will stand in support of you if it is yours.

Glenn Greenwald brilliantly and decisively indicts hypocritical regime liberals who cheered George Bush’s 20th anniversary 9/11 speech because they want a massive domestic war on terror against the tens of millions of Trump supporters who they equate with the Al Qaeda terrorists responsible for the attacks on September 11, 2001. This is the same evil George W. Bush they repeatedly earlier equated with Adolf Hitler, the fascist war criminal who they repeatedly claimed stole the presidential elections of 2000 and 2004, and perceived as a vile and despicable excuse of human being.
An article purporting to “help sexual assault survivors navigate TSA checkpoints” quotes one such victim’s review of those gulags: “It’s stressful.” Perhaps “Jane Epstein,” the alleged “survivor,” is given to understatement: “utterly traumatizing, dehumanizing, and unbearable” far more accurately describe the TSA’s fondling of passengers.
Meanwhile, what “help” does Ms. Epstein offer those suffering at the TSA’s literal hands?
–Present a ‘TSA Notification Card’ … that alerts the officer to sensitive to [sic] areas on the body.
-Ask for a private screening with or without a traveling partner present in a room away from other passengers.
-Request help from a Passenger Support Specialist, an officer who is dedicated to helping passengers with special needs navigate the checkpoint.
Hmmm: ya think ol’ Jane “works” in the TSA’s PR department or what? Yo, Jane: the only actual remedy is to abolish this barbaric bureaucracy and prosecute its miscreants.
Imagine a government so abusive that its agents are indistinguishable from rapists. Why do we tolerate such criminality? Why have we tolerated it for two entire decades?11:59 am on September 15, 2021 Email Becky Akers
I thought of the title of this blog because I remembered what my old friend the late Walter E. Williams wrote in his book, South Africa’s War Against Capitalism, about the Official Slogan of the white Marxist South African unions who created the Apartheid system there in the early twentieth century: “Workers of the World Unite, Keep South Africa White.” A cute adaptation of The Communist Manifesto, don’t you think?
Well, yesterday the Bolsheviks in California, led by Nancy Pelosi and her nephew, Gavin Newsom, saved Californians from the man the Los Angeles Times labeled “the black face of white supremacy,” Larry Elder, by defeating the recall effort.
A particularly charming aspect of the Bolshevik campaign this time around was to send out a white women in a gorilla mask to chuck eggs at Larry Elder while he was walking the streets campaigning. Although it was caught on camera, and there were police present, she was not apprehended or charged with assault. Oh well, I assume the same thing would have happened if it was Obama or some other black Democrat that a white girl in a gorilla mask threw eggs at.
I wonder if all those California Republican voters who reportedly showed up to vote only to have voting machines tell them “Sorry, you already voted” (even though they hadn’t) ever did get a chance to vote. Or ever will again.11:17 am on September 15, 2021 Email Thomas DiLorenzo
For over seven years on LRC I have extensively detailed, discussed, and outlined the concept of the deep state within the swollen belly of the federal body politic. I have repeatedly warmed of the possibility of this entity engaging in a clandestine extra-constitutional Coup d’état in seizing control of the mechanism of State power from a president perceived as their enemy, as portrayed in the classic political thriller, Seven Days In May, where a delusional Chairman of the Pentagon’s Joint Chiefs of Staff schemes with other top ranking military officials and high echelon members of Congress.
“Seven Days In May” Seditious Coup d’état Is No Longer A Fictional Possibility. Watch the hard reality unfold on this episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight. Note the craven acquiescence and gleeful acceptance of this destruction of our constitutional order and rule of law by the regime media presstitutes and cheerleaders.12:02 am on September 15, 2021 Email Charles Burris
Oh, isn’t this cute! The Dims pretend that they won’t meddle with Californiastan’s recall election of Gruesome Nuisance, that it will be fair and open and they won’t stuff ballots, as they did during the presidential one last November. To further this deception, they even awakened His Senility for “a final push” on behalf of “Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.”
Hint to the Marxists: for your charade to succeed, order your propagandists to cool it with such obvious and outrageous whoppers as, “Speaking to hundreds of cheering supporters …, Biden…” (this from the snoozer whose campaign rallies bombed at the height of his popularity, such as it was, let alone now). Then there’s this gem of a confession, “Newsom’s ouster would be a stunning rebuke in heavily Democratic California, where the party controls every statewide office, dominates the Legislature and congressional delegation and holds a nearly 2-to-1 advantage in registered voters. Less than three years ago he was elected in a landslide.”
If anyone thinks the Dims will suddenly repent of their usual crimes when so much lies at stake, well, see me about a bridge in Brooklyn that’s an absolute steal this week only.
Unless, of course, they’re setting up Uncle Joe for removal with yet another failure. Throwing Nuisance under the bus may be a small price to pay for installing Giggling Kamala in the White House.11:02 am on September 14, 2021 Email Becky Akers
For a few weeks this summer, the Jab Battle threatened to supplant the Mask War. But no longer. Like the embattled—and losing—Nazis in 1944, Our Rulers assail on many fronts.
That makes our resistance more essential than ever, not only to the Jab but to diapering our faces. The more the Marxists try to corral us into collectives, the more we must dissent while proclaiming our individuality. No politician or law will restore our liberty. Living free requires each of us to fight these totalitarians with every weapon and in every way we can.

After Biden’s decree that businesses with over 100 employees must require them to be vaccinated, I see that CDC libertarians—who rarely utter an unkind word about how the Civil Rights Act of 1964 destroyed the rights of private property, freedom of assembly, freedom of association, free enterprise, and freedom of contract—are doubling down on their “defense” of businesses requiring that their employees and/or customers get the Covid vaccine. If you believe in private property, they say, then business owners should have the right to decide whom they employ and do business with. That is certainly true, and something that I have written about for years. But there is nothing “libertarian” or “free market” about private businesses requiring vaccines for their workers and vaccine passports from their customers when it is all in response to pronouncements, pressure, and propaganda from the unholy trinity of the Biden administration, the CDC, and the news media.8:39 am on September 14, 2021 Email Laurence M.

Once upon a time, in a land far away, lived a man, a man who believed that he, alone among all men, was anointed by God. In fact, this man believed he was God. This man took it upon himself to organize and lead a great and holy crusade, a vast and powerful movement of the oppressed and victimized. This movement had a powerful symbol – the rainbow. This man and his select group of followers would redefine everything in the world in which they lived, from the most basic human relationships such as marriage and property, to the ultimate question of whom would live and whom would die. But this story is not some lost fanciful legend or children’s fable. It is one of the most profound lessons in history. The ideas of this man and his followers are not confined to a remote dustbin of the past, but are very alive today. They have impacted the world (and continue to impact our world) such as few ideas before or since. Such ideas have consequences. Are we prepared to face them?11:16 pm on September 12, 2021 Email Charles Burris
I have written many times about American military appreciation days (also known as holidays): Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Veterans Day. Conservative Christians celebrate these days with a vengeance on the Sunday before these holidays. Sometimes unsuspecting Christians experience a double whammy when their church celebrates one of these holidays on both the Sunday before and the Sunday after. When Independence Day or Veterans Day falls on a Sunday, it is a high holy day.
The newest military appreciation day is the Sunday closest to 9/11. Since yesterday was the 20th anniversary of 9/11, many conservative churches turned up the the military blasphemy and idolatry in church today. In addition to the usual nonsense that takes place on the other military appreciation days, it was reported to me that one church (I’m sure there were many) reserved 13 seats and draped them with American flags to honor the recent soldiers who died in Afghanistan. Another church (not doubt many more) showed a video about 9/11. Yet another church (certainly many more) subjected its members to a brief lecture about the heroes in the U.S. military who went to fight for our freedoms in Afghanistan.
The number of Sundays when Christians who don’t worship the state will choose to stay home from church is growing.3:43 pm on September 12, 2021 Email Laurence M. Vance

9/11 and the Politics of Fear and Self-Preservation, by Whitney Webb

We will either be remembered as a country that took freedom and liberty for all seriously or we will be remembered as a nation of cowards who, driven by fear, were willing to deprive this group, then that group, of their freedom — before losing that freedom entirely.
The 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001 is a particularly somber one, not just because of the horrific nature of events of that day reaching its second-decade milestone, but because of how little we seem to have learned in that amount of time.
The fear and trauma generated by the events of 9/11 were used by the U.S. national security state and its civilian allies to great effect to divide the American population, to attack independent reporting as well as independent thought, to gut the anti-war movement, and to normalize the U.S. government’s overt and persistent degradation of the country’s Constitution. This, of course, is in addition to the illegal U.S. occupations and drone wars in the Middle East and elsewhere that were also born out of this event.
The citizen is becoming a pawn in a game where nobody knows the rules, where everybody consequently doubts that there are rules at all, and where the vocabulary has been diminished to such an extent that nobody is even sure what the game is all about.

Julie Ponesse, a philosophy professor specializing in ethics who until recently taught at the University of Western Ontario in Canada, has a moving video in which she protests the requirement at her university that she get a Covid-19 vaccination in order to continue teaching. She points out that it is her absolute right to decide what substances are injected into her body, and that this should settle the question of whether the requirement is legitimate. In this case, there is also a supplementary argument to be considered. The evidence does not show the vaccine works, and there is reason to believe it has harmful effects. At the end of the video, she breaks down in tears over the prospect of being unable able to continue her 21 years of teaching, and she was in fact fired.4:42 pm on September 10, 2021 Email David Gordon
