          ‘Consider the cultural implications’: USA Today warns that using words like ‘aloha’ and ‘hola’ could be problematic:

          While many Americans sprinkle non-English vocabulary into their everyday speech, a piece posted by USA Today suggests that using words borrowed from other languages, such as “aloha,” “hola,” and “shalom,” could potentially be problematic, depending on why and how they are used.

          “It’s a greeting or a farewell, but the meaning is deeper,” director of Pacific Islands Studies at the University of Utah Maile Arvin said about the Hawaiian word “aloha,” according to the outlet. “One of my Hawaiian language teachers taught it to me as ‘Aloha means recognizing yourself in everyone and everything you meet.'”

          The USA Today piece, which was authored by David Oliver, suggests that non-Hawaiians using the word could come across like mockery.

          “Language is too critical to our culture, that we can’t just casually use language in ways that might offend and/or even harm, do harm to certain groups of people,” director of the Frederick Douglass Institute of African & African-American Studies at the University of Rochester Jeffrey McCune said, according to USA Today.

          [Most people use language to communicate, not to mock others.  And people of other language groups almost always appreciate that you are trying to reach out to them. Aloha in Hawaii is something everybody says.  It’s a friendly greeting.  This woke stuff is getting old!]

            Swiss MP At Davos: Change Living Environments To Force The Public To Follow Climate Goals:

            Though the 2023 meeting has just started, it is not disappointing so far in terms of revelations of technocracy.  Case in point:  Swiss MP Bastien Girod painted a vision of the near future in which governments change the nature of how population is organized.  The grand idea?  To focus people into tightly controlled cities designed around carbon controls and where cars are illegal for individuals to own.  And, to establish penalties for businesses that do not conform to bureaucratic climate change policies.

            The exploitation of global warming hysteria despite all scientific evidence to the contrary remains the primary topic and tool of globalism.  Climate organizations claim that carbon emissions substantially increased for the past eight years yet global temperatures have not increased in same period according to the latest NOAA data.  Not only that, but global temps have only risen less than 1 degree C in the past 100 years.  There is still no concrete evidence that carbon emissions have a causation relationship with changes in global temperatures.  Yet, this false threat is the rallying cry of the Davos elite and their continuing demands for freedom-crushing centralization.

              Report: Microsoft to lay off 11,000 employees:

              Microsoft is preparing to axe thousands of jobs in the latest move by one of the world’s biggest technology companies to reduce its workforce in the face of a slowing global economy, Sky News reported on Tuesday.

              The US software giant could announce plans to cull a significant number of posts around the world within a matter of days, the report said.

              Microsoft, which employs more than 220,000 people, including 6,000 in the UK, is said to be contemplating cutting roughly 5% of its workforce, which if accurate would equate to approximately 11,000 jobs, according to Sky News.

              The report comes after a slew of large tech companies have laid off employees in recent weeks. One of these companies is Amazon, which announced plans to lay off more than 18,000 employees earlier this month.  Salesforce, the cloud software provider, said it would cut 8,000 jobs, while Meta, the owner of Facebook, is reducing its workforce by approximately 11,000 roles.

                The Mainstream Media Admits That We Are Facing “The Worst Food Crisis In Modern History”:

                People on the other side of the planet are dropping dead from starvation right now, but most people don’t even realize that this is happening.  Unfortunately, most people just assume that everything is fine and dandy.  If you are one of those people that believe that everything is just wonderful, I would encourage you to pay close attention to the details that I am about to share with you.  Global hunger is rapidly spreading, and that is because global food supplies have been getting tighter and tighter.  If current trends continue, we could potentially be facing a nightmare scenario before this calendar year is over.

                Just because you still may have enough food to eat doesn’t mean that everybody else is okay.  In fact, things have already gotten so bad that even CNN is admitting that we are facing “the worst food crisis in modern history”…

                Yet the world is still in the grips of the worst food crisis in modern history, as Russia’s war in Ukraine shakes global agricultural systems already grappling with the effects of extreme weather and the pandemic. Market conditions may have improved in recent months, but experts do not expect imminent relief.

                That means more pain for vulnerable communities already struggling with hunger. It also boosts the risk of starvation and famine in countries such as Somalia, which is contending with what the United Nations describes as a “catastrophic” food emergency.

                Sadly, it isn’t just in Somalia where the food crisis has reached “catastrophic” proportions.  According to Reuters, the entire continent is now dealing with the worst food crisis that Africa “has ever seen”…

                Do you remember all those years when Sally Struthers was begging us to feed the starving children in Africa?  Well, the truth is that conditions are now far worse than when she was making those commercials.

                Economic conditions are changing so rapidly now, and nothing will ever be quite the same again.  As we move forward, the widespread use of “beetleburgers” is one of the “solutions” that the global elite are starting to push…

                Beetleburgers could soon be helping to feed the world, according to new research. The creepy crawlers’ larvae — better known as mealworms — could act as a meat alternative to alleviate hunger worldwide. The process uses a fraction of the land and water and emits a smaller carbon footprint in comparison to traditional farming.

                To make this a reality, French biotech company Ynsect is planning a global network of insect farms, including nurseries and slaughterhouses. A pilot plant has already been set up at Dole in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comte region of France.

                    Microsoft’s New AI Can Mimic Anyone’s Voice! Here’s Why VALL-E Concerns Experts:

                    The tech giant manufacturer quietly introduced the new artificial intelligence. There were no press releases or other big announcements for the technology.

                    But this is not the problem. Experts shared their concern about the ability of the new VALL-E to mimic anyone’s voice.

                    Via its Github demo page, Microsoft wrote that the new AI could copy an individual’s speaking style.  VALL-E can do this by listening to a three-second audio recording.  “VALL-E emerges in-context learning capabilities and can be used to synthesize high-quality personalized speech with only a 3-second enrolled recording of an unseen speaker as an acoustic prompt,” said Microsoft.

                    Surprisingly, the TTS tech could copy the diction and speakers’ speech. Most of VALL-E’s audio is so similar that you won’t notice any differences from the original ones.

                    This is where the problem starts. Many experts said that if scammers and other cybercriminals can create a similar technology, they can easily copy the voices of their victims.  Just imagine answering a call from strangers. After that, your voice is already being used for malicious campaigns.

                      Study: Law Forces Prosecutors to Dump 69% of NYC Criminal Cases:

                      A law has forced prosecutors to drop cases in New York City, which has only added to its crime problem, according to a study.  The issue resulted in suspects being freed without facing consequences, the New York Post reported Thursday.

                      The rate at which cases were dismissed citywide rose from 44% in 2019 — the year new “discovery” rules were adopted by state lawmakers — to 69% by mid-October 2021, the Manhattan Institute finds in the report, set for release Thursday.

                      For misdemeanor cases, the increase was even more dramatic, jumping from 49% to 82% during the same period, according to official data cited by the conservative think tank.

                      Social media users expressed their opinions on the matter, one writing, “NYC needs another Giuliani to clean house.”

                      “It’s appalling how broken the justice system is with the radical policies democrats impose. They empower criminals at the expense of the innocent,” another said.

                      The statute has correlated with intensifying crime and a decrease in arrests being made, the study continued:

                      In New York City, adult felony arrests fell by 14% between 2019 and 2021, while NYC shootings rose by 102% and murders rose by over 51%. Citywide, felony and misdemeanor drug arrests combined fell by over 48%—even though illegal drug activity expanded, evidenced by drug overdose deaths up by nearly 80%.

                        Legendary singer-songwriter David Crosby has died:

                        Legendary singer-songwriter David Crosby has died at age 81, according to his family. Crosby was a founding member of influential rock bands The Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

                        Jan Dance, Crosby’s wife, issued a statement about the passing of the music icon through Variety, “It is with great sadness after a long illness, that our beloved David (Croz) Crosby has passed away.”

                        “He was lovingly surrounded by his wife and soulmate Jan and son Django,” the widow continued. “Although he is no longer here with us, his humanity and kind soul will continue to guide and inspire us. His legacy will continue to live on through his legendary music.”

                            Pope Francis: “Proselytizing is something pagan, not evangelical, not Christian”:

                            On Wednesday, Pope Francis, the head of the Catholic Church, addressed crowds gathered for his weekly general audience that convincing someone from another religion to become Christian is a “pagan” practice.

                            “To evangelize is not to proselytize,” the pope told crowds gathered in the Vatican for his weekly general audience. “To proselytize is something pagan, it is neither religious nor evangelical.”

                            Pope Francis has specifically forbidden attempts to convert Jews.

                              Egg smuggling into the US increases, border authorities report amid soaring inflation:

                              U.S. Customs and Border Protection recently announced a rise in egg smuggling into the country amid soaring poultry costs and inflation.

                              According to CBP’s reports, egg products and poultry seizures at the southern border were up 108% from October 1 to December 31 last year. The Economic Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture noted that during that same period, the price of a dozen eggs increased from $3.50 to $5.30 due to an avian flu outbreak that forced farmers to put down 43 million chickens.

                              The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that in December 2021, the average cost of a carton of a dozen eggs was $1.79, compared to $4.25 in December 2022 – a 137% increase.

                              “The San Diego Field Office has recently noticed an increase in the number of eggs intercepted at our ports of entry. As a reminder, uncooked eggs are prohibited entry from Mexico into the U.S. Failure to declare agriculture items can result in penalties of up to $10,000,” De La O wrote.

                              According to CBP, uncooked eggs are prohibited from entering the U.S. from Mexico because of the risk of bird flu and Newcastle Disease. As a result, eggs seized at the border are incinerated.

                              With rampant drug smuggling and a migrant crisis at the open southern border, De La O’s Twitter post led some users to question CBP’s priorities.

                                Fire Hazard: Norwegian Shipping Company First to Ban Electric Cars on Ferries:

                                A Norwegian shipping company bans electric cars on its ferries. According to a risk analysis, such vehicles’ fire risk is too significant. An ocean liner had recently sunk because of it.
                                The Norwegian shipping company, Havila Kystruten, has banned electric, hybrid, and hydrogen cars from its ferries. After a risk analysis, it was concluded that the risk to the safety of the shipping fleet was too significant. If a vehicle catches fire, the fire can no longer be extinguished.

                                The risks for ships from the transport of Electric cars (EV) have been discussed since the “Felicity Ace” sank off the Azores, Portugal, last February. E-vehicles on board had caught fire. The fire could not be extinguished. Finally, the colossal ship sank with thousands of electric cars, including Porsche and Bentley “green” vehicles.

                                Capt. Rahul Khanna, global head of marine consulting at Allianz (AGCS), a marine insurance specialist, explains that the problem with EVs is that lithium-ion batteries in the cars can actually propagate the fire, igniting more vigorously as compared to conventional cars. A single-vehicle fire could prove catastrophic.  Passengers would also be at risk.

                                  India Overtakes China As World’s Most Populous Nation:

                                  At this point, what we have been speculating about for months looks to be official: India has already passed China as the world’s most populous nation.

                                  Citing estimates from the World Population Review, an independent organization focused on census and demographics, India’s population was marked at 1.417 billion as of the end of 2022. This marks 5 million more than the 1.412 billion people reported by China. according to reporting by Bloomberg and the SCMP.

                                  China’s figure marks the first population decline for the country since the 1960s.  [Due to their one-child policy.]

                                  Half the population is under the age of 30 in India, the report notes.  Nearly 800 million people “still rely on free food rations from the government,” however. And estimates for where the country’s population is at now range from 1.423 billion to 1.428 billion – a sign that the growth in India is slated to continue.

                                    Fay (22 Jan 2023) from Five Doves
                                    “OH!!  The Truth is Emerging re EV’s”:

                                    It seems that the whole house of cards is beginning to collapse after this last Davos extravaganza. In the 1st link, we read how a shipping company is now refusing to transport electric vehicles because of the dangerous risk. In the 2nd link, we hear from a chauffeur employed at Davos. He says that he is not allowed to chauffeur the VIPs around in an EV because “they are dangerous.”

                                    So – EV’s for the commoners and fuel cars for the ‘elites’ !! This is going to have major repercussions because it affects huge car manufacturers the world over. If the ‘elites’ deem EV’s dangerous, there is no way Joe Public is going to buy one.

                                    It’s a given that major car manufacturers will take note of these developments. As will the car-purchasing public! The very foundations of the NWO wannabees is cracking up. Their fall will be swift. Our LORD Jesus must be very close, indeed.

                                    Please let it be so, LORD.

                                    Scripture informs us that all will be revealed before the return of our LORD.
                                    ……………………………………………..

                                    Davos: Electric Cars for Commoners, Fuel Cars for WEF Elites:

                                    In Davos, Japanese journalist Masako Ganaha spoke to a chauffeur who drives the World Economic Forum (WEF) VIPs around. He told her he could not use a plug-in car to transport VIPs. He went on to say that electric vehicles are very “dangerous.”

                                    The WEF has made some changes this year. Davos has a heliport so that VIPs can fly around in helicopters again. In addition, there is no longer a CO2 limit for cars.

                                    Twitter boss Elon Musk finds it “ironic” that the WEF VIPs prefer fuel cars, as the Tesla Model Y is the best-selling car in Switzerland. In other words: plug-in cars for the commoners and cars using fossil fuels for the Elites.

                                      There have been 275 attacks on Catholic churches since May 2020: Report:

                                      Since the 2020 summer riots, when vandals caused billions of dollars in damages, there have been at least 275 attacks against Catholic Churches in the United States, reported CatholicVote Civic Action, a nonprofit advocacy organization.

                                      While the rioting and looting were winding down at the end of the summer, the targeted attacks against churches were just ramping up.

                                      The more than 275 attacks against Catholic Churches since May 28, 2020, included arson, damaged and destroyed property, graffiti, and shattered windows.  According to CatholicVotes, churches across the nation have been spray-painted with satanic messages, and religious statues have been decapitated. [And remember Notre Dame Cathedral in France in 2019, was burned and had statues decapitated– the fire was widely reported on, although the statues’ damage was not publicized.]

                                      The widespread attacks occurred with more frequency following the leak of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in May 2022.

                                        Nolte: Brits Pay More to Charge Electric Car than to Gas Up:

                                        Per mile traveled, our British friends are now paying more to charge their electric cars than to gas them up.

                                        Rapid charge points used by motorists topping up on long drives are now nearly £10 more expensive than filling up a car with petrol, the RAC revealed last week.

                                        But research from the AA published on Monday finds that recharging an electric car even using a slow public charger at peak times can be more expensive, per mile driven afterward, than for refuelling a comparable petrol car.

                                        But at least these smug electric car drivers are decreasing their carbon footprint.  Oh, wait, they aren’t… You can’t make electricity without burning fossil fuels, so….  Question: What’s left to feel smug about after it costs more to drive your electric car than a car-car?

                                        Well, I guess you can pretend to feel all kinds of virtuous about saving Mother Earth in your Prius, but Global Warming is a hoax. So … you’re not saving anything. You’re certainly not saving money — lol. What’s more, no matter how much denial you conjure up, fossil fuels are still being burned to supply you with the electricity for your car, which, by the way, costs more than filling up your car with fossil fuels.

                                          EU Official Threatens Elon Musk for Allowing Free Speech on Twitter:

                                          The EU is threatening Elon Musk and Twitter.  They can’t stand that the US has a constitutional right of free speech and freedom of the press.

                                          European politician Věra Jourová warned Elon Musk from the World Economic Forum in Davos that Twitter will face “sanctions” if it does not shut down some forms of speech.   “. . . we cannot accept, for instance, illegal content online and so on. So, our message was clear: we have rules which have to be complied with, otherwise, there will be sanctions.”

                                            China Is Using QR Codes On Kitchen Knives In Order To Track Them:

                                            Throughout the last decade, China’s technological surveillance systems have strengthened the grip of control the CCP has on its citizens.  Its facial recognition systems can track the majority of its citizens and even fine them for petty violations such as jaywalking but people aren’t the only thing that the CCP is tracking.

                                            Since 2017, China has been tracking kitchen knives by putting QR Codes on them.

                                            A knife salesman in the city of Aksu, who was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, stated he has spent thousands of dollars on mechanical machines that put a customer’s photo, ethnicity, ID Number and address into a QR code which is then placed on the blade of the knife.

                                            The CCP claims they place the QR codes on knives in order to track a knife back to its owner if it’s used for a crime.

                                            Many China analysts believe the QR code is being used to prevent any uprising from occurring against the government.

                                            Anyone who is advocating for guns to be banned in the United States should be careful what they wish for because their kitchen knives could one day be tracked if the 2nd Amendment was ever abolished.

                                                Report: 5,621 Christians Murdered for Their Faith in 2022:

                                                ROME — Christian persecution spiked around the globe in 2022, Open Doors reveals in its newly released World Watch List 2023.

                                                Among the sobering statistics included in the annual report were the murders of 5,621 Christians for their faith, the profanation of 2,110 Christian churches and buildings, and the stunning number of Christians around the world who face high levels of persecution and discrimination: 360 million.

                                                Topping this year’s list is North Korea, an officially atheist communist state that remains “a brutally hostile place for Christians to live” and where “believers are either sent to labor camps as political prisoners where the conditions are atrocious, or killed on the spot,” the reports states.

                                                In Somalia, the “violent insurgent group al-Shabaab has repeatedly expressed its desire to eradicate Christians from the country,” the report notes, and Islamic militants have “intensified their hunt for people who are Christian and in a position of leadership.”

                                                Yemen, third on the Watch List, is another country where Islamic extremism is the principal driver of Christian persecution.

                                                Islamic extremism is pervasive throughout the list and nine of the top ten nations for Christian persecution are Muslim dominated. In countries such as Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sudan, Libya, and Afghanistan, Islamic extremism is the driving force behind anti-Christian violence and oppression.

                                                  Nolte: San Diego Prepares to Tax Residents by Miles Driven:

                                                  Left-wing fascists in San Diego are preparing to tax residents by the mile to convince them to give up their cars.

                                                  Via Fox News:  San Diego County’s Regional Transportation Agency’s (SANDAG) latest transportation plan is designed to make driving so expensive that you succumb to public transportation. In addition to the current gas tax and registration fees, SANDAG’s plan adds three new half-cent sales tax increases, over 800 miles of San Diego County freeway lanes converted to toll lanes, and a mileage tax for every mile driven to pay for their $165 billion public mass transit plan.

                                                  SANDAG’s new plan refuses to build the road improvements promised in their last plan but will continue to tax us until 2048 to pay for them.

                                                  SANDAG’s finance plan states, “Charging fees for the transportation infrastructure that people use—for example, charging users for each mile they drive on the highway—can change travel behavior.”

                                                    Report: George Soros Funds Global ‘Fact Checking’ Empire:

                                                    Over the past few years, a cottage industry of “fact checkers” and “misinformation” experts has emerged to advance the left’s mission of silencing dissent to its agenda around the world. Analysis of the funding of these organizations leads back to a familiar figure: left-wing billionaire George Soros.

                                                    The New York Post broke down the trail of Soros dollars linking a global network of organizations intent on suppressing and discrediting conservative voices online.

                                                    “Fact-checking” is an important element in the left’s online censorship machine, giving social media companies a politically neutral pretext to censor conservative viewpoints.

                                                    Facebook notoriously uses fact-checkers to dodge responsibility for censorship, even though its infamous decision to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story took place before any third-party fact-checkers had weighed in. In court, Facebook has admitted that fact checks, despite their pretense of impartiality and objectivity, are just opinions.

                                                          A poll measured how many Millennials are getting their bills paid by their parents and found that nearly one-fourth got help with paying the rent.

                                                          The OnePoll survey conducted on behalf of Chartway Credit Union found that 24% of Millennials said their parents pay their rent.

                                                          A previous poll from Pew Research found in September 2020 that a majority of adults between the ages of 18 and 29 years old were living with one or both of their parents. That rate had not been seen since the Great Depression era, but many blamed the surge on the coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown.

                                                            Is the DOD Unprepared for Earth’s Magnetic Pole Shift?:

                                                            While the Department of Defense is spending billions to counteract climate change, no one is talking about a real geologic phenomenon. Scientists have revealed the Earth’s magnetic poles are moving. That sounds significant, yet very little is being said in national security circles about what the magnetic poles switching places might do to weapon systems that may be influenced by magnetic poles wandering about the globe.

                                                            “Earth’s magnetic field is governed by the flow of materials in our planet’s core, and it seems that two competing magnetic ‘blobs’ along the outer core are pulling at the magnetic north pole,” science contributor Eric Mack wrote in Forbes. Scientists believe they’ve uncovered what may be causing the shift, “which has implications for everyday navigation and mapping systems among other things,” Mack explained. The center of the planet is a solid iron sphere surrounded by molten iron that flows. Dynamic pressure is exerted in this deep terrestrial realm by the two magnetic areas, one under Canada and one beneath Siberia, and the Siberian region is pulling the Canadian area toward it. Consequently, the focus of polar magnetism is centering in Russian Siberia.

                                                            “This is why the North Pole has left its historic position over the Canadian Arctic and crossed over the International Date Line. Russia is winning the ‘tug of war,’ if you like,” Dr. Phil Livermore of Leeds University explained to the BBC. Leeds geoscientists have measured the speed at which the Canadian pole is moving toward the Siberian at approximately 30-40 miles a year. Meanwhile, geophysical forces are in motion at the core of the Earth.

                                                            “A team of researchers from China believe the Earth’s inner core has reversed its rotation after they analyzed earthquake-driven seismic waves as they pass through the Earth … [R]esearchers said the reversal of the inner core rotation would shorten the length of the day by a fraction of a millisecond over the course of a year and might have a small effect on Earth’s magnetic field but wouldn’t affect life on the surface.”

                                                            Scientists conclude that the planet’s core is slowing and possibly reversing direction, and the magnetic poles are shifting. NASA scientists have written about the shift with an air of reassurance that no catastrophic consequences will result. NASA explained: “the Earth’s magnetic field has flipped its polarity many times over the millennia.” In other words, the North Pole has moved South, and the South Pole has moved North, as the title of the agency’s article suggests: “2012: Magnetic Pole Reversal Happens All the (Geologic) Time.” The qualifier is “(Geologic) Time.” So, that means not every week. “Earth has settled in the last 20 million years into a pattern of a pole reversal about every 200,000 to 300,000 years,” NASA noted. And it has been twice that long since the last magnetic shift.

                                                            Though the fossil records show no “dramatic” effects when the last shift occurred approximately 600,000 years ago, there were no highly sophisticated mapping and navigation systems that depended on Magnetic North and South to be reliable at the time. However, now we have become hostage to satellite navigation, and anti-satellite weapons could take out that capability. It seems the United States would be at a disadvantage having to depend on ground-based systems for precision weapons and location accuracy without GPS satellites and reliable magnetic poles providing baseline guidance. But the truth is, we don’t know what predicament the magnetic shift portends for our military.

                                                            More troubling is that the US Defense Department does not appear concerned. There is no funding to study the effects of a magnetic shift change, and this could leave the United States in a uniquely unprepared situation.

                                                              “New York City Erects Pagan Horned Satanic Statue On City Courthouse To Promote Abortion”:

                                                              A new, golden idol to abortion stands on top of a New York City courthouse this month, a reminder of the religiosity with which abortion activists defend the mass slaughter of babies in the womb.

                                                              The “NOW” statue also hints at the satanic: a naked, golden woman with braids fashioned into horns coming out of her head as she emerges from a pink lotus, according to photos in the New York Times. Images used by Satanists and The Satanic Temple often depict Satan with goat-like horns.

                                                              Andrew Beck, of the advertising agency Beck & Stone, drew attention to the statue Wednesday in a post on Twitter.

                                                              “The statue, named ‘NOW,’ is a female figure emerging from a pink lotus,” Beck wrote. “It has braids shaped as horns with a judicial lace apron. It is meant to pay homage to Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her fight for abortion.”

                                                              According to the New York Times, artist Shahzia Sikander created the 8-foot statue as an homage to the late U.S. Supreme Court justice, an idol of the pro-abortion movement. It recently was installed on top of the Courthouse of the Appellate Division, First Department of the Supreme Court of the State of New York in the city.

                                                              In New York, the law allows unborn babies to be aborted for basically any reason up to birth. And in New York City, abortions often outnumber births in the African American community. Despite these dismal facts, city and state Democrat leaders are pushing to expand abortions even more. Earlier this month, city leaders announced plans to begin buying abortion pills to distribute at city health clinics, the New York Post reports.

                                                              Also notable, pro-abortion politicians’ and abortion activists’ talking points frequently now include fighting “like hell” to keep the killing of unborn babies legal, and “Hail, Satan!” sometimes gets shouted at pro-abortion protests. In recent years, The Satanic Temple also has filed numerous lawsuits that challenge laws protecting unborn babies’ lives on religious grounds. The group claims abortion is a religious ritual.

                                                                As Gateway Pundit readers know, food processing plants across the United States have been targeted repeatedly over the last two years.  Just this past weekend, there was a massive fire at an egg farm in Connecticut.

                                                                What is going on here? Tucker Carlson examined the issue in his opening monologue on Monday night.  From FOX News:

                                                                Last spring, in March, at a press conference in Brussels, Joe Biden explained that the sanctions he was imposing against Russia, while morally necessary, were also going to cause food shortages around the world, including here in the United States. “It’s going to be real,” he said.

                                                                Now, Biden said this in a very odd way. There was no hint of panic. . .

                                                                Then Biden continued, recounting a conversation he had with European allies. He told us all about it. When he met with the group, Biden said, they spoke about “how we could increase and disseminate more rapidly food shortages.” That’s what Joe Biden said verbatim. It’s on tape…

                                                                We can’t know what Joe Biden was thinking, if anything, when he uttered those words in Brussels. We can only tell you what happened afterward.

                                                                Strange disasters began to beset food processors all over the United States. In April, the next month, the headquarters of one of this country’s largest organic food distributors was destroyed in a fire. Cause unknown. The next month, in a single week, actually, two separate private plane crashes took out two separate food processing centers. One plane hit a General Mills plant in Georgia. The other plane hit a food plant in Idaho. By the way, back in February, a boiler explosion obliterated a potato processing plant in Oregon and so on.

                                                                So even people who aren’t given to connecting the dots, who don’t think of themselves as conspiracy nuts, begin to wonder, “Is there something here?” But no one could tell. The Biden administration had no answers and no way to get to the answers because they had no data.  [video at link]

                                                                If you ask any questions about this, all of the usual suspects in media will call you a conspiracy theorist, rather than trying to answer the questions.  Why is this happening?

                                                                  Cindy Williams, the actress who played Shirley Feeney on the hit 1970s sitcom Laverne & Shirley, has died at the age of 75.

                                                                  Williams, along with Penny Marshall as Laverne DeFazio, enjoyed an incredibly successful run on the show, which featured the two Milwaukee brewery workers getting into all sorts of crazy situations.  The two were known for incredible acts of physical comedy. Penny Marshall passed away in 2018.

                                                                  Williams died in Los Angeles at age 75 on Wednesday after a brief illness, her children, Zak and Emily Hudson, said in a statement released through family spokeswoman Liza Cranis.

                                                                  “The passing of our kind, hilarious mother, Cindy Williams, has brought us insurmountable sadness that could never truly be expressed,” the statement said. “Knowing and loving her has been our joy and privilege. She was one of a kind, beautiful, generous and possessed a brilliant sense of humor and a glittering spirit that everyone loved.”

                                                                      Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott is calling for universal school choice through the use of education savings accounts, or ESAs.

                                                                      Democrats oppose school choice because their party is in bed with the teacher unions.  Teacher unions don’t want public schools to have any competition, which is just what is needed to make schools better. When government has a monopoly on education, schools have no incentive to improve.

                                                                      The state has already piloted a form of such savings accounts through microgrants made available to select students with disabilities in 2020.  “It’s been so successful,” Abbott said of the program. The state awarded $1,500 grants to more than 65,000 students, according to the Texas Education Agency. “But that program shouldn’t be limited.”

                                                                      Gov. Greg Abbott said “every child in the state of Texas” needs access to a voucher-like program that gives parents public dollars to spend on private school tuition or other educational expenses.

                                                                      One of the good things that came out of the pandemic, was the increased scrutiny from parents on public schools.  People who are unable to home-school should be able to choose where to send their children.

                                                                        Legendary poet Maya Angelou is famous for her quote “when someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.” A far-left Nebraska state senator decided to declare war on religious families despite her protestations afterward that she was merely trolling.

                                                                        State Senator Megan Hunt was so triggered over a Republican-backed bill that would bar young children from attending grotesque drag queen shows and penalize the adults taking them that she filed a blatantly unconstitutional amendment last Friday to go after individuals taking their kids to church events like vacation Bible study.

                                                                        Courtesy of the Blaze, here are the full details of Hunt’s blasphemous proposal:
                                                                        Hunt’s amendment calls for blocking youth from “religious indoctrination camp,” which the proposal defines as “a camp, vacation Bible study, retreat, lock-in, or convention held by a church, youth group, or religious organization for the purpose of indoctrinating children with a specific set of religious beliefs.”

                                                                        Nebraska Democratic State Senator Proposes Amendment To Bar Kids From Attending Church Events
