It’s impossible to maintain a constitutional republic like America’s with a citizenry who can’t think for themselves. Thanks to Progressives’ stranglehold on public education, millions of Americans are bereft of critical thinking skills due to decades of indoctrination.

It’s widely believed this insidious indoctrination in public schools dates back to the 1960’s, but as bestselling author and Fox and Friends co-host Pete Hegseth and magazine editor David Goodwin detail in their excellent book, the Progressives’ game plan to control the “supply lines” of future citizens goes back 120 years.

A central thesis of their brilliant book promoting classical Christian education revolves around a Greek word called “paideia.” This little-known word has been a linchpin in Progressive plans to hijack education because it involves the “rearing, molding and education of children.”

American Progressives knew, like the ancient Greeks, that the best way to control culture was by controlling education.

As the authors point out, whereas the ancient Greeks used paideia to promote godly virtues like wisdom, courage, and justice, Progressives removed the religious context and over time adopted pseudo-virtues based on scientism principles like race, gender, and oppressor/oppressed identities.

“Hence the term ‘virtue signaling’ when these are on exhibition. But these ‘virtues’ are based in cultural Marxism, not Christianity,” the authors write in Chapter 8, Reason and Virtue. In other words, Progressivism is not attached to a divine ideal but rather humanism and the pursuit of a godless utopia, or what the authors call the Cultural Marxist Paideia (CMP).

For most of two thousand years Western children were educated in the classical Christian tradition, or Western Christian Paideia (WCP). Children studied history, Latin, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, math, poetry and logic. Students acquired and cultivated wisdom by studying history and the ancient philosophers as students in classical Christian schools do today.

In the 1890’s, Progressives like John Dewey and Horace Mann sought to supplant WCP with a American Progressive Paideia (APP) that would repurpose education as a tool for social manipulation and industrial progress while removing God, Christ and Christianity.

“The Progressives realized that true classical Christian education was more powerful than just teaching virtues – it cultivated a paideia with a foundation in divine Truth. At its very core, it reaches for an ideal higher than human institutions,” the authors write in Chapter 5, The Elitist Roots of Progressivism.

Hegseth and Goodwin note that Progressives of that era knew that dropping classical learning practices without replacing them with an inspiring alternative would be unacceptable to the general public. They cleverly substituted patriotic fervor and nationalism in place of God and Christ, thereby enabling schools to become a pliant tool for social reform with a love for America as the backdrop.

The authors point out it was Progressives like President Woodrow Wilson who introduced the patriotic holiday Flag Day and a socialist minister named Francis Bellamy who wrote the Pledge of Allegiance.

It wasn’t until the Eisenhower administration that the words “under God” were added to Bellamy’s original pledge.

“Once the APP had been universally taught in schools, say between 1925 and 1965, its resulting culture dominated for another generation – until about 2005,” the authors write. “Beginning somewhere between 2000 and 2005, the American Paideia was replaced with the Cultural Marxist Paideia, which obtained its authority from ‘equity’ vested in individual identity.”

The authors note that today, following 20 years of the Cultural Marxist Paideia, people can shoplift without consequence, riots on the Left are dismissed as “mostly peaceful” while protests on the Right are considered “insurrections,” and rapes occurring in public restrooms are condoned because of gender identity.

“Imagine how powerful the Cultural Marxist Paideia will be once it has been taught for a generation – in 2045,” Hegseth writes. “Imagine the world your kids and mine are entering.”

A combat army veteran, Hegseth notes that while the Left now controls the “commanding heights” and is “shooting from concealed and fortified positions,” what’s needed is a “radical reorientation” in how parents approach education. In short, an insurgency to reform education.

The authors note we need to return to our Judeo-Christian roots and promote classical Christian schools that train students in reasoning and persuasion, science and mathematics, history and rhetoric.

“Instead of throwing our kids into the cultural deep end and hoping they find the right answer, classical Christian education builds a foundation of virtue and knowledge – a lens through which students are prepared to explore and engage with our past, present, and future with wisdom.”

Well written and seasoned throughout with indisputable facts and logic, Battle for the American Mind is a vitally important work at a critical time in American education. The authors’ compelling narrative provides a deep dive into the history of American public education: what went wrong, why it went wrong, and how to fix it with a return to teaching and learning to love the right things and cultivating our kids’ moral imagination.

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity Ploy

There’s a lot of discussion these days about diversity, equity and inclusivity in workplaces, schools and civic organizations. What exactly is it?

Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity (DEI) is a term used to describe policies and programs that promote the representation and participation of different groups of individuals, including people of different ages, races and ethnicities, abilities and disabilities, genders, religions, cultures and sexual orientations.

Sounds innocuous, right? But there is an underbelly to the DEI philosophy that is toxic. DEI is pure identity politics and often masks itself as Critical Race Theory.

Let’s put the three components of this Marxist philosophy under a microscope:

Diversity

Diversity in any environment is a good thing, though it’s better if diversity occurs naturally based on needs, abilities and interests.

There is no country on earth with a more diverse populace than America, hence our enviable reputation as a melting pot. Our diversity makes us unique, but it’s not diversity alone that makes America exceptional. What makes America special is a diverse population who believe in American ideals like freedom, capitalism and the right to worship (or not) as we please.

Diversity is the chassis, but it is citizens pulling together in common cause that is the engine that makes America go. United we stand, divided we fall. DEI divides and separates us, assigning people to specific boxes.

The focus on emphasizing individual differences, without including a meaningful cause and purpose (not just based on feelings but tangible results), is like a traffic jam with a cacophony of blaring horns and angry shouts where every driver insists, they have the right-of-way.

The Biden administration is very diverse and has checked a lot of the identity politics boxes, but because it works against the American ideal of freedom and merit, this administration is hopelessly incompetent and ineffective because it lacks a proper foundation.

Like Make America Great.

Equity

There has been a concerted effort in recent years to swap the word “equity” for “equality.” Equity is to equality what prunes are to prudent. Those unsure of the difference probably believe in unicorns and magic rainbows.

“Equality” is the pursuit of equal opportunity. “Equity” is a fairytale promising equal outcomes. Try as it may, the government cannot legislate equal outcomes (nor should it), but it has and should support laws guaranteeing equal opportunities.

Last year American Airlines announced plans to hire and train more female and minority pilots. Okay. But what happens if a desired number of female pilots qualify and earn their wings, but there aren’t enough females of a certain minority group to check a specific box? Or, what if there aren’t enough transgender Asian males transitioning to female pilots who even apply?

You think flight cancellations have been bad under the Biden administration to date, just wait until American or Delta cancels future flights because they don’t have enough Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander cross dressing female pilots to make their quota.

Inclusivity

Merriam-Webster defines inclusive as “including everyone – especially allowing and accommodating people who have historically been excluded (because of their race, gender, sexuality, or ability.”)

It’s always amusing that the people who claim to favor inclusivity stubbornly exclude people with whom they disagree. Greg Gutfeld termed such people the “Intolerati.” Their tolerance and inclusive natures only apply as long as you agree with them. If you disagree, you are excluded from Camp Inclusive.

This three-legged stool of diversity, equity and inclusivity has its roots not in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Independence, but in Marxism. Divide people by gender, race, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation, prey on raw emotions of unfairness and grievance, and DIE advocates have willfully traded objective facts for subjective feelings.

They’re like a dog chasing its tail.

Isn’t it ironic that “diversity” in DIE excludes diverse thinking and opinions? Isn’t it sad that fairytale equity has supplanted the sweat equity of hard work and diligence? Isn’t it pathetic that “inclusivity” focuses on grievances and gripes rather than gratitude and greatness?

Those of us over age 40 remember The Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” That has worked well for over two millennia.

Replacing The Golden Rule with a humanistic ideal that separates rather than unifies is comparable to using a low flow toilet that has to be flushed twice to work properly. What’s the point?

Book Review: We’ll Be Back – The Fall and Rise of America

Type: Non-fiction

Category: Current Affairs

Author: Kurt Schlichter

Pages: 303

Publisher: Regnery

List Price (Hardcover): $26.99

I’m not a lawyer, but I’ve seen enough Perry Mason re-runs to know a good case is based on smart strategy and pragmatism.

In “We’ll Be Back – The Fall and Rise of America,” California trial lawyer, Town Hall columnist and retired Army Infantry Colonel Kurt Schlichter presents a compelling case that our sock puppet president may be dragging America down and out, but it’s premature to write us off as a 21st century Roman Empire in ruins or Orwell’s Oceana.

Thousands of readers know Schlichter for his caustic wit and how he routinely incites pearl clutching among liberals and Never Trump Republicans in his tri-weekly Town Hall columns.

In this new non-fiction gem, he skillfully walks a literary tightrope with a well-researched narrative that is brutally honest, hopefully optimistic, and sprinkled liberally (pun intended) with his trademark humor.

Schlichter notes the U.S. has become flabby with prosperity, self-indulgent and lazy just like the citizens of ancient Rome. The virtues and checks and balances on government intrusions designed by the Founding Fathers have been carelessly discarded and discredited, solely for the pursuit of power, he asserts.

Recent examples illustrating his point could include the D. C. elite undoing historic safeguards like due process, gun ownership and free speech as the J6 committee locks up Capitol Hill protestors indefinitely for, gasp, trespassing; Congress bribes states to employ red flag gun laws, and the sultans of Silicon Valley wantonly stifle open discussions on the Internet.

Schlichter writes how America was at its best in 1991 when defeating Iraq, before morphing 30 years later into the rudderless republic we are today.

The central premise of “We’ll Be Back” is that America is headed for a historic showdown if conservatives don’t regain electoral control. “Colonel K” outlines the different ways that could play out: a national divorce between red states and blue states (as detailed in his six-book Kelly Turnbull fiction series), a second civil war, or subjugation by China or American Marxists.

Schlichter offers thoughtful commentary on all three scenarios, including a civil war brought on by a blue rebellion against a red federal government (less likely because blue states are not contiguous and “its population consists of those needing to be fed rather than those doing the feeding.”

A more likely scenario would be red Americans fighting a blue federal government, and again the red states would have the advantage due to a vast connected land mass and troop composition.

“Do you see a lot of transsexual mime studies majors dropping out of Gumbo State to join the Army to fight guerillas in the Ozarks?” he asks. “The Antifa street punk stuff is all fun and games, especially since the cops are there to protect them, but war is different,” Schlichter notes in Chapter 10’s The Second Civil War: Red Revolution.

Regarding Chinese influence over our economy, Schlichter wryly notes in Chapter 11’s The China Crisis, “They outsource their R&D, and largely steal it from us. We outsource our manufacturing, then pay to import it back.”

He also expounds that China’s mushrooming influence on American society is made possible by opportunistic leaders of both political parties, “composed of the corrupt and the clownish, and usually both at once.”

As mordant as the subject of the fall of America is, Colonel K throws readers a lifeline of hope in the final three chapters on how we can crawl out of the abyss of hopelessness and indifference. As he notes in Chapter 14’s America Comes to Its Senses, the Constitution has not failed. Conservatives just need to rally enough Americans around to our way of thinking.

The alternatives vividly described by the author in chapters 3-12 are too awful to do anything less than rally our fellow citizens.

Chapter 13’s The Authoritarian Temptation is fun to fantasize about but unlike the donkey party, conservatives don’t color outside the constitutional lines.

In various chapters Schlichter underscores a point with fictional vignettes, and none is more hopeful and inspiring than the one in Chapter 16’s The Decision Point: 2024. Readers will be pumping their fists at the description of a conservative Republican president who, in his first acts as president on January 20, 2025, begins draining the swamp by firing FBI Director Christopher Wray, every general on the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Dr. Anthony Fauci.

And that is just an appetizer for what follows, such as defunding universities lacking “ideological diversity” and firing every federal employee that has “diversity,” “inclusion” or “equity” in their job title.”

“We’ll Be Back” is provocative, insightful and well researched. The colonel strategically maps out how conservatives can effectively combat the ruthlessness and evil of the past few years, reclaim the God-given rights that have made America great and restore our country as a moral, sovereign and economic powerhouse.

Biden Flipping Lid Over Presidency?

Depressed, frustrated and angry at the millions of voter fingers pointed his way blaming him for a tanking economy, President Joe Biden is reportedly considering calling a lid on his presidency to pursue a new challenge: managing a baseball team.

You read that right. Joe Biden may flip his presidential lid for a baseball cap.

“Look, look, it’s like this. Everyone knows I’m not calling the shots right now as president but yet I get blamed for everything going wrong.” Leaning forward, he adds with a fervid whisper, “I’ve had it with all these lyin,’ dog-faced pony soldiers dissin’ ol’ Joe.

“I’ve still got game, and the game I’m aiming for is baseball. It’s pure, it’s simple and its as American pie as Betty Crocker and that guy who sang that song about music dying and the levee being dry because Trump didn’t water it or somethin’.”

The president turned wannabe baseball manager says he’s got his eye on managing a team he’s followed since childhood famous for its infield, though he plans to make significant roster changes from the outset.

“Look, look, this guy Who on first base. He’s out of position because he can’t bend or stretch anymore but he’s still got a good arm. I plan to move Who to third and put I Don’t Know on second and What on first,” the president said.

“Who’s playing shortstop?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked.

“Who isn’t playing shortstop, you stupid son of a b,” Biden chortles. “I’m moving him to second. Or is Who on first?” the president muses with a vacant stare.

“Who’s on third,” Doocy says. “You just made that your first roster change.”

“Who did?” the president queries.

“No, you did, Mr. President,” Doocy says. “Just a minute ago.”

“Says Who?” Biden asks

“Says you,” Doocy explained. “Who hasn’t commented on the move.”

“But I remember Who playing first,” the president whined. “I saw him after I marched at Selma with Martin Luther King, Jr., in the back of an 18-wheeler, on my drive to South Africa to shake hands with Nelson Mandela.”

Silence enveloped the press room as reporters sat scribbling what the president meant to say so they could confirm that with his staff afterwards.

“Any Who,” the president said, chuckling at his own wit. “The point is, and here’s the point, and that point is I don’t know what I don’t know, but I do know I Don’t Know isn’t playing shortstop. Capice?

The president promised to circle back on his entire lineup before his first game, but we can report that No One’s Home is pitching at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue while America burns.

Pride Month? Give Us a Break

June used to be known for Father’s Day, Flag Day and Summer Solstice. In the Age of Woke, now it’s known as Pride Month.

Apparently, celebrating one’s sexuality with all the colors of the rainbow requires a full month rather than a day like President’s Day or a week like Easter Holy Week.

For those who worship at the altar of Diversity, Inclusivity and Equity (DIE), June is the calendar’s official virtue signaling month. You doubt me? Check out all the social media messaging and virtual signaling by companies, organizations and media outlets paying homage to alternative lifestyles and demanding everyone do the same.

It’s like all those buckling under to the LGBTQ lobby think Genesis 1:27 was just a helpful suggestion from God to inspire humans to think outside the gender box.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, LBGTQ proponents would have us believe that the rainbow in Noah’s day is proof that multiple genders of animals boarded the ark and that God signed off supporting LBGTQs with a technicolor signature.

Today June is awash in rainbow colors celebrating the LGBTQ movement and all the sexual diversity it represents. Pride Month is like a grab bag of Skittle preferred pronouns and more imaginary genders than a transgender MIT mathematician can calculate.

If the first few days of June are any indication of what we have to look forward to all month, somewhere over the Pride Month rainbow is July and it can’t get here soon enough for me.

Earlier this week the U.S. Marines Corp tweeted a photo of rainbow-painted bullets in the strap of a combat helmet inscribed with “Proud to Serve.” Our enemies are laughing so hard they won’t be able to shoot straight.

It’s interesting that State Department embassies giddily promoting Pride Month by flying the rainbow flag won’t fly it in Muslim countries where homosexual behavior is illegal and punishable by death.

It’s also fascinating that woke teams like the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets enthusiastically celebrate Pride Month by designing a Pride flag to post on Twitter while the NBA turns a blind eye to Chinese genocide and imprisonment of Uyghurs and other mostly Muslim ethnic groups.

When it comes to celebrating alternative sexual lifestyles, the NBA and scores of other woke entities lead the fast break to the rainbow bandwagon, though gay or transgender Uyghurs apparently aren’t included in the Pride Month festivities.

As talk show host and Town Hall columnist Larry O’Connor noted recently, society seems to have “conflated the idea of not being ashamed of our sexual nature with being proud of it instead.” As O’Connor points out though, if LGBTQ folks are born that way, what exactly are they so proud of? I have a full head of hair, hazel eyes and am heterosexual but don’t consider those traits worthy of a flag or a parade.

Okay, maybe my hair, though the gray and thinning helps keep me humble.

For those who think the DIE philosophy and hedonistic sacraments like Pride Month are spiritual experiences worth celebrating, the Bible is clear with its admonition that “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18 NIV)

Put another way, haughtiness and hubris lead to failure and loss.

This post won’t stop the rainbow-tinged kowtowing to the sexually woke this month, but at least now I can enjoy my rainbow sherbet and M&M’s with a clear conscience.

Big Sister Jankowicz Uncensored

WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a Dean Riffs exclusive, Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board Director Nina Jankowicz took a break from making Tik Tok videos to discuss the role of the newly minted free speech police and her plans to ferret out disinformation believed harmful to democracy.

Question: Is there any difference between “disinformation” and “misinformation,” and if so, what is it?

Answer: Certainly. Disinformation is an intentional act to spread false information, whereas misinformation is the distribution of false information, but not necessarily on purpose. All disinformation is misinformation, but not all misinformation is disinformation.

Question: Why not call the new board the Disinformation and Misinformation Governance Board or create a separate Misinformation Governance Board to police unintentional disinformation so as not to confuse it with the policing of intentional disinformation?

Answer: That would be somewhat redundant and confusing to voters, though it would help create more government jobs. I’ll take that under advisement.

Question: Were your tweets about Hunter Biden’s laptop “disinformation” or “misinformation” since those allegations have proven to be true?

Answer: Neither. The story about Hunter Biden’s laptop could be considered misinformation because I didn’t know the allegations were true when tweeting that it was Russian disinformation. In this case, however, it wasn’t misinformation because my intentions were pure, and the Republicans lie about everything.

Question: Then the stories about Hunter Biden’s laptop are true?

Answer: It’s not in my purview to assess whether the allegations are true or not. My responsibility is to monitor online reporting and stories that question what the Disinformation Governance Board says is true.

Question: There are countless stories online that aren’t factually true but are widely circulated and retweeted. For instance, your tweets castigating those questioning the Covid lockdowns and the efficacy of the vaccines could be considered censorship and bullying in many circles.

Answer: (Snort) That’s the kind of disinformation our agency will investigate! There are lots of rumors and fabrications about Covid, the vaccines and questioning the necessity of the lockdowns and masking that need to be shut down because they confuse people about trusting experts like the CDC and Lord Fau.., I mean, Dr. Fauci.

Question: Some say the purpose of the Disinformation Governance Board is to quash free speech and political opinions the administration disagrees with?

Answer: See, that in itself is untrue! Our role is to root out hate speech and political dissent that can harm democracy. You know, like what you hear at a Trump rally.

Question: And hate speech is defined as…?

Answer: Hate speech is speech that divides Americans and pits us against one another. United we stand, divided we yada, yada, yada. We’re better than that as a country, and we’re going to make sure of that by shaming the haters and censoring them in the public square.

Question: You have zero concern then about violating the First Amendment rights of free speech to all Americans?

Answer: Of course not! People can say whatever they want, whenever they want, wherever they want. The Disinformation Governance Board merely serves as a filter not unlike a water filtration system that removes impurities and harmful substances that can infect the whole organism. Only Donald Trump and those supporting dirty water oppose our mission.

Question: We have to ask. What’s with the Mary Poppins act?

Answer: I need to wrap up this interview now to launch a disinformation investigation of Dean Riffs, but let me close with this:

Information laundering is really quite ferocious, it’s when a huckster takes some lies and makes them sound precocious, disinformation’s origins are slightly less atrocious, the Disinformation Governanace Board is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Worse President Ever?

Stupidity and stubbornness are bad character traits, more so if you are the President of the United States. Add senility and shortsightedness and you’ve got Joe Biden in a scrambled nutshell.

Joe Biden is the gift that keeps on giving – especially if you are Vladmir Putin, Biden benefactor President Xi and any number of other totalitarian crackpots around the globe, including the boy band reject in the Great White North, Justin Truedope.

Biden has done so much damage in so little time, he’s like the mayhem guy on the Allstate commercials. Unfortunately, all of America is suffering the consequences of President Mayhem’s leadership, or lack thereof.

Just when you think Hidin’ Biden’s poll numbers can’t go lower, he manages to shock and awe us all with levels of ineptitude and incompetent blunders felt around the world.

Ukraine is a recent tragic example, but lest we forget, there was shuttering the Keystone Pipeline his first day in office, the Afghanistan debacle where hundreds of Americans were abandoned and 13 service members killed, and his Build Back Buffoon plan that was so bad key Democrats wouldn’t support it.

And that’s not even counting the ongoing scourge of Bidenflation, the neutering of the military with CRT brainwashing and forced vaccinations and holding the entire country hostage under senseless Covid mandates while forcing school children to wear face diapers all day when children are the least susceptible to the Wuhan Flu.

And today President Xibiden announced his Supreme Court choice based on the same racist criteria used to select his vapid Vice-President, Comma-la Harris: a nominee who’s black, female and despises America First values.

If Ketanji Brown Jackson brings the same level of intelligence and energy to the Supreme Court as VP Harris, the country can look forward to lots of word salad oral arguments and blind indifference to the Constitution minus the maniacal cackle.

In just one year Amtrak Joe has managed to nudge out James Buchanan and Jimmy Carter as arguably our worst president, though many political watchers credit Barack Obama for helping Biden attain that status. Reportedly, the two talk daily over the phone and Obama dispenses the pearls of wisdom he gathered over two terms politicizing every branch of the federal government and weaponizing various intelligence agencies against their opposition.

Biden’s first term is like an Obama third term but without Barack having to actually do anything. Meanwhile, we have three more years of the Delaware Dummy and his gang that can’t shoot straight.

Buckle up, America; we are in for a very bumpy ride.

Ten Fearless Predictions for 2022

It wouldn’t be a new year without New Year’s resolutions, but because our new puppy ate my resolutions New Year’s Eve, here are 10 bold predictions for 2022.


1. Alexandria Obsessively Compulsive, or AOC, tweets something stupid then doubles down on her stupid tweet with an even stupider comment about her stupid tweet. The Queen of “The Squad” got a head start on our 2022 prediction Dec 31 by accusing Republicans of being “creepy weirdos” obsessed with her and “sexually frustrated” because they couldn’t date her.

We’d expect nothing less from the former bartender turned Congressperson than to sexually fantasize about herself with Republicans.


2. Dr. Anthony Fauci, aka Frankenfauci, suggests we could cure Covid by jabbing babies in the birth canal with experimental mRNA gene therapy drugs. Any mother, aka birthing person to the mentally deranged, refusing the experimental therapy would be held prisoner by the CDC and forced to listen to looping Anthony Fauci interviews and watching endless clips of his opening day pitch for the Washington Nationals.


3. Former President Barack Hussein Obama accepts a $10 million advance from the For Dummies books publisher to write a book on “How to Write Memoirs” sequels. The former president will also announce plans to release four more autobiographies before the 2024 election once he verifies his sources.


4. The LGBTQ community releases evidence they say proves Noah loaded multiple genders of animals on the ark. Spoiler alert: the guardians of gender pronouns community says the rainbow described in Genesis following The Great Flood is proof that Noah’s family were early LGBTQ supporters.

5. Merrian-Webster will publish a new dictionary of Biden terms and Rosetta Stone will release a beta version of Biden-speak sometime this spring.

6. Black Lives Matter launches segregated public schools for people of color because they say desegregated schools are infested with white supremacists. The two or three actual white supremacists that exist applaud the move.

7. The women of The View on ABC will announce they are banning all guests not fully vaccinated. Initially it won’t be clear if they meant vaccinated for Covid or for Joy Reid’s moronic opinions.


8. Joint Chief Chairman Mark Milley will denounce his own white supremacy and recommend Jussie Smollett as his replacement.


9. American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten will admit her support of Critical Race Theory and Black Lives Matter literature in school curriculums is largely because she’s always been bad at math and PE class.


10. CNN and Hunter Biden will announce plans to cosponsor private intervention sessions for teens and pre-adolescents confused about their sexuality and gender pronouns. The name of their program will be Bigger Brother.

BONUS PREDICTIONS:

Vice-President Kamala Harris learns the root cause why millions of illegals are invading America: It’s because America is a racist, homophobic, xenophobic country which offers lots of free stuff for those breaking the laws to move here.

Shoe manufacturer Crocs announces a new line of footwear in 2022: the Fauci Flip-Flops.

A Little Jab Will Do You – Or Will It?

Back in the 1950’s Brylcreem ran an advertising campaign for their men’s hair product with the slogan, ” A little dab’ll do ya.” Seventy years later the CDC has unwittingly repurposed that theme while encouraging COVID vaccinations: “A little jab’ll do ya.”

But will it? Depends on whom you ask.

Q: Will the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson and Johnson vaccines protect you from catching COVID?

A: No, but President Biden and Anthony Fauci say you should get the jab so America can bend the curve or get back to normal or something.

Q: Will the jab keep you from transmitting COVID?

A: No, and questioning the efficacy of the jab may mean you’re a white Christian nationalist mouth breather. If you ask why the thousands of illegals coming in through the southern border aren’t required to be vaccinated, you may be a white Christian nationalist xenophobe.

Q: Once jabbed, can you quit wearing a mask and no longer worry about social distancing?

A: No, because you can still catch COVID and infect others, you selfish jerk! Fun fact: did you know that if you get the jab and die within 14 days, your medical record will list you as “unvaccinated?”

Q: So why get the experimental gene therapy jab?

A: If you do catch COVID it minimizes the symptoms and will probably keep you out of the hospital, though the chances of needing hospitalization are minimal anyway unless you are obese, have one or more co-morbidities and someone in hospital administration hears you have a cough.

Q: Is it true many hospitals are currently overrun with COVID cases?

A: No. Whistleblowers are providing evidence and leaked Zoom calls from hospital marketing meetings show that like many things with this scamdemic, hospitals being overrun with COVID emergencies isn’t true.

Q: Are most doctors and nurses getting the jab?

No. Many nurses have quit their jobs when being forced to undergo the jab and over 860,000 doctors worldwide have signed the Great Barrington Declaration recommending focused protection for the most vulnerable rather than mass vaccinations of an experimental gene therapy for everyone.

Q: Is the jab safe?

A: Not if you believe the self-reporting VAERS database the CDC uses. One NYC doctor says VAERS is grossly undercounting the number of deaths and significant side effects caused by the jab.

Q: Will a jab of the CDC’s magic elixir protect you against different variants of COVID?

A: No. The vaccine is only effective against the original variant of COVID, and is reportedly only good for 5-6 months. Kind of like taking a flu vaccine left over from two or three years ago. It might work…?

Q: Are there any other benefits to getting the jab other than it minimizes symptoms from the original COVID virus?

A: You can go places that require proof of being jabbed like restaurants, concerts, health clubs and football stadiums. Oh, you also get a cool card identifying you as a “vaccinated” person and the privilege of unlimited virtue signaling if that’s your thing.

Q: Let’s see if we understand what we’re being told. Even if you’ve had COVID, you’re being asked to take the jab to presumably protect others and eliminate the pandemic, though you can still get sick and transmit the virus?

A: Yes. The question we all need to ask is why are health bureaucrats like Tony Fauci and our elected leaders pleading/insisting/demanding/mandating/shaming everyone to take an experimental gene therapy that doesn’t provide immunity, doesn’t prevent transmission, works only on the original COVID variant, and doesn’t last more than a few months?

Fauci has warned for weeks its probable another, more dangerous variant may be on the horizon. If we don’t stand up as a united people, defy the medical tyranny of the past 19 months and reclaim our freedom as individuals, Dr. Gloom may be right about a dangerous new variant.

Trump Was Impeached for Far Less

Who knew that when Joe Biden said, “America is Back” he was referring to a show-and-tell where he turns his back on the world while America and Afghanistan burn.

If political disasters were measured on the Richter scale, Biden’s last 10 days would measure a 14.0.

To think Nancy Botoxi and the Democrats impeached Trump twice over a legitimate phone call with the Ukrainian president and a riot at the Capitol instigated in large part by militia leadership working with the FBI.

With a southern border featuring a tsunami of humanity, many of whom are infected with the Fauci pandemic, inflation that reminds us of Georgia peanuts and gas lines, and a military exit that makes Custer’s Last Stand look like World War II’s VE-Day, just what does Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. have to do to be impeached by Congress?

The number of abandoned Americans stuck in Biden’s Gaffeinistan as “guests’ of the Taliban ranges anywhere from 15,000 to 45,000, depending upon whom you ask in the competent-challenged administration. Obama 2.0 is staffed largely by Obama flunkies and suffice it to say their math abilities and geopolitics expertise hasn’t improved under President Word Salad.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken is second only to his boss in the stupid things he says. Sunday he said we needed to ask the Taliban for permission to evacuate Americans from Kabul. Earlier in the weekend he said the best way to get Americans out would be for them to find their own way to the Taliban-surrounded airport, even while there are multiple reports of Americans with passports trying that being beaten at Taliban checkpoints.

And lest we forget, Blinken has also admitted that he ignored warnings received in mid-July from intelligence agencies and his own State Department that a Taliban takeover would occur sooner rather than later.

But with all things Team Biden, there’s plenty of blame to go around. Blinken’s naivete doesn’t excuse a military led by losers like Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley, the former who earlier this year put the military on a 60-day stand down to pursue white supremacists in the ranks, and the latter who who goes to sleep at night spooning books about Critical Race Theory.

In a Sunday 4 p.m. press conference intended to update us on his Afghan disaster and an East Coast tropical storm, Xibiden slurred, stuttered and tongue slalomed absurd comments about the importance of storm victims getting vaccinated for COVID. He ignored questions about the ongoing threat of desperate Americans trapped in Bidenistan because that was like four or five days ago.

If this debacle had happened under Trump the Democrats would have already voted to impeach him a third time. Instead, Nancy Pelositon spent the weekend hosting a Democrat fundraiser in Napa Valley and Cryin’ Chuck Schumer was seen dancing with Stephen Colbert in NYC. Meanwhile, Vice President Comma-la Harris flew halfway across the world to Singapore and Vietnam to discuss regional security issues.

Like this administration understands anything about security issues and protecting America’s interests.

Impeachment? Heck, Amtrak Joe hasn’t even fired anyone for what many are calling the largest military blunder in American history. Eighty-three billion dollars worth of helicopters, attack planes, Humvees, guns, ammunition and uniforms abandoned to the terrorists to just scoop up like piñata candy. The piñata is America’s reputation and taxpayers.

But look, the grateful Taliban even sent us a thoughtful postcard doing a historic re-enactment of our victory at Iwo Jima. C’mon man, wasn’t that nice?

God bless and protect our American and Afghan allies trapped behind enemy lines and forced to confront the Taliban on their own. Only God knows if there is anyone in this administration willing, competent and able to lift a hand to help, but don’t bet on it.

Thanks for reading Dean Riffs. Welcome to all those who love American liberty, free enterprise, and who believe God has blessed our country.
