CNN’S DANA BASH ASKS ANTHONY FAUCI’S PERMISSION TO EAT AT A RESTAURANT, GETS TOLD NO BECAUSE OF THE OMICRON

We are now twenty-two months into this pandemic. Plus fifteen days to flatten the curve, three variants, two presidents, and a Danny Bonaduce in a pear tree. Almost two years into this nonsense, and the corporate media is STILL asking Anthony Fauci for permission for how to live their lives. What seemed absurd to normies back in August of 2020 isn’t absurd to CNN’s Dana Bash. Unavailable for comment is CNN’s Brian Stelter, who is busy fapping himself over January 6.

The highest-paid unelected government bureaucrat and media whore was a guest on the Sunday morning news shows (imagine that) where Bash asked his permission for how Americans should behave. Specifically, people who have gotten three shots.

            “How should vaccinated and boosted people behave? Can they go into a restaurant, eat safely indoors right now?” – Dana Bash – CNN sock puppet

Let that question percolate in your noggin’ for a bit. Fauci is a government official. Dana Bash is, at least in theory, a reporter. Reporters are supposed to hold government officials to account on behalf of the American people. This reporter is ASKING THE GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL’S PERMISSION for the American people to behave a certain way. This has become common and way too many people accept it.

“The safest thing to do is to be in a home setting… What you want to avoid are places where you have 20, 30, 40, 50 people.” – Herr Fauci

I see. So, we’re told no more lockdowns. Joe Biden isn’t going to call for more government-mandated lockdowns. Yet, anytime Fauci is on television on behalf of the Joe Biden White House, he’s encouraging you to lock yourselves down. That way it’s not the government that is responsible for small businesses struggling. It’s the fault of the people who are making the decision not to leave their houses, a decision that they are being scared into by the government. Makes total sense – Brodigan, Jan 3, 2022, Louder with Crowder

“Record numbers testing positive for a sore throat isn’t a crisis

“Record numbers testing positive for a sore throat isn’t a crisis

And people in the hospital for car accidents testing positive isn’t a surge

The real crisis is the irrational hysteria which has people with no symptoms waiting hours for a test or missing work for 10 days.” – Marco Rubio

The Senator has a point, a very good point indeed. So, when are Americans going to start acting like Americans instead of mindless minions of a marxist state?

Awake Not Woke

The leftists want us divided- pastorwardclinton.com

Americans would do well to become very aware of the language employed by progressives in order to erode fundamental American freedoms and our traditional way of life. Freedom of Religion gets changed to Freedom of Worship, which sounds innocent and harmless but it is not.

The left’s hate machine is very deceptive and dangerous but God’s word imparts strength to overcome their machinations. Be awake and be wise.

Christopher Columbus’ Forgotten Crusade Against Jihad

Christopher Columbus’s Forgotten Crusade Against Jihad

BY RAYMOND IBRAHIM OCT 14, 2021 2:20 PM ET Share Tweet

Another Columbus Day has come and gone. Although it was “celebrated” with the usual denunciations and outraged wokeism concerning the Italian explorer’s alleged “genocide” against the natives, one influential voice came to Columbus’s defense: On October 11, Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a proclamation, an excerpt of which follows:null

Columbus stands a singular figure in Western Civilization, who exemplified courage, risk-taking, and heroism in the face of enormous odds; as a visionary who saw the possibilities of exploration beyond Europe; and as a founding father who laid the foundation for what would one day become the United States of America, which would commemorate Columbus by naming its federal district after him.

While all this is true, Columbus stands for and is a reminder of something else that is now little known if not completely forgotten: He was, first and foremost, a crusader—an avowed enemy of the jihad; his expeditions were, first and foremost, about circumventing and ultimately retaliating against the Islamic sultanates surrounding and terrorizing Europe—not just finding spices.

When he was born, the then more than 800-year-old war with Islam—or rather defense against jihad—was at an all-time high. In 1453, when Columbus was 2-years-old, the Turks finally sacked Constantinople, an atrocity-laden event that rocked Christendom to its core.

Over the following years, the Muslims continued making inroads deep into the Balkans, leaving much death and destruction in their wake, with millions of Slavs enslaved. (Yes, the two words are etymologically connected, and for this very reason.)

In 1480, when he was 29, the Turks even managed to invade Columbus’s native Italy, where, in the city of Otranto, they ritually beheaded 800 Christians—and sawed their archbishop in half—for refusing to embrace Islam.

It was in this context that Spain’s monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabella—themselves avowed crusaders, especially the queen, who concluded the centuries-long Reconquista of Spain by liberating Granada of Islam in 1492—took Columbus into their service.

They funded his ambitious voyage in an effort to launch, in the words of historian Louis Bertrand, “a final and definite Crusade against Islam by way of the Indies.” (It, of course, went awry and culminated in the incidental founding of the New World.)

Many Europeans were convinced that if only they could reach the peoples east of Islam—who if not Christian were at least “not as yet infected by the Mahometan plague,” to quote Pope Nicholas V (d.1455)—together they could crush Islam between them. (The plan was centuries old and connected to the legend of Prester John, a supposedly great Christian monarch reigning in the East who would one day march westward and avenge Christendom by destroying Islam.)

All this comes out clearly in Columbus’s own letters: In one he refers to Ferdinand and Isabella as “enemies of the wretched sect of Mohammet” who are “resolve[d] to send me to the regions of the Indies, to see [how the people thereof can help in the war effort].” In another written to the monarchs after he reached the New World, Columbus offers to raise an army “for the war and conquest of Jerusalem.”

Nor were Spain and Columbus the first to implement this strategy; once Portugal was cleared of Islam in 1249, its military orders launched into Muslim Africa. “The great and overriding motivation behind [Prince] Henry the Navigator’s [b. 1394] explosive energy and expansive intellect,” writes historian George Grant, “was the simple desire to take the cross—to carry the crusading sword over to Africa and thus to open a new chapter in Christendom’s holy war against Islam.” He launched all those discovery voyages because “he sought to know if there were in those parts any Christian princes,” who “would aid him against the enemies of the faith,” wrote a contemporary.

Does all this make Columbus and by extension Ferdinand and Isabella—not to mention the whole of Christendom—“Islamophobes,” as those few modern critics who mention the Islamic backdrop of Columbus’s voyage often accuse?

The answer is yes—but not in the way that word is used today. While the Greek word phobos has always meant “fear,” its usage today implies “irrational fear.” However, considering that for nearly a thousand years before Columbus, Islam had repeatedly attacked Christendom to the point of swallowing up three-quarters of its original territory, including for centuries Spain; that Islam’s latest iteration, in the guise of the Ottoman Turks, was during Columbus’s era devastating the Balkans and Mediterranean; and that, even centuries after Columbus, Islam was still terrorizing the West—marching onto Vienna with 200,000 jihadis in 1683 and provoking America into its first war as a nation—the very suggestion that historic Christian fears of Islam were “irrational” is itself the height of irrationalism.

Bidenism

Bidenism is Centrism. A doctrine that offers even less than zero. It has been tried for 40 years, and has resulted in the Gen Xers  and the Millennials and the Gen Zers being pushed into a trajectory of diminished expectations, year after year. Generation Covid-19, I suspect, won’t even bother with expectations; they will mindlessly follow the mandates of their masters, the “dear leaders”

For the last two weekends, videos have gone viral of large crowds at college football games chanting “F**k Biden.” Others have shown hecklers at his in-person events yelling the phrase, and the hashtag #FBiden trended on Twitter. The stain of the botched Afghanistan withdrawal collided with the emotional 20th anniversary of the  9/11 attacks. The self-inflicted wound the administration foisted on America is not just open. It is starting to fester. Americans are still trapped in Afghanistan, and the State Department has told our Afghan allies to ask the United Nations for help with the evacuation.

Say what?  We are Americans; we don’t betray and leave people behind!  Bide called his role in the Afghanistanian “withdrawal” a “success.”  If that was a success then Joe is a very evil person!  The Biden administration has betrayed America and her allies.

To distract from the horror show and national security issues they have created, the administration pivoted to COVID-19. On Thursday, President Biden announced an unprecedented vaccine mandate in a speech that was astonishingly divisive. The last two weeks also produced disappointing jobs numbers, predictions of rising food prices, and an 8.3% increase in producer prices for August. Americans have a lot to be concerned about.

CNN poll released on Friday, Sep 10, ’21, shows that Americans are concerned and angry. Despite a D+6 sample, the results are a cause for concern if you are a Democrat running in 2022. In previous iterations of the same poll, some reported having no opinion on Biden’s handling of the presidency, the economy, and COVID-19. Now it appears that no one is undecided. Even with an oversampling of Democrats, Biden’s overall approval is only 52%. On the economy, only 51% say things are going well. Even COVID-19 only earned 56%, a 10-point decline from April.

The cost of Bidenism is extremely high.  There are thousands of people left behind by Biden and their lives are in jeopardy, but he doesn’t care because he is counting on the left-leaning media to continue to run cover for him.
