Ben Hur was wrong. The Roman and Greek navies did not use slaves or prisoners to row galleys but professional rowers. Galley salves did not become common until the 16th century long after those empires fell.

Biden Frivolously Neglects National Security

Biden Frivolously Neglects National Security

By Joe Guzzardi  

To learn first-hand how negligent the federal government is about national security, book an airline reservation to any destination. By comparison to the open Southwest border, airports are locked down tight.

Biden Frivolously Neglects National

The pre-boarding drill is too familiar. Travelers, once at the football-field long Transportation Safety Administration pre-boarding line, must remove shoes. After taking out iPads, liquids, gels and aerosol items (maximum 3.4 ounce-capacity) which have been packed into one quart-sized, clear plastic bag with a zip-top closure, airplane passengers then must toss their baggage into bins for screening.

After that frustrating drill, passengers must show government-issued identification with a current photograph to a TSA official, and go through a metal detector. Unlucky passengers are pulled aside for further screening with either a full-body pat-down or a handheld wand that’s passed across the upper torso, hands, legs and backsides. These considerable inconveniences that often involve affronts to privacy cost taxpayers $7.7 billion annually.

At the border, however, illegal aliens from more than 100 countries have been able to walk right in, surrender to Customs and Border Protection agents, and wait for transportation to their final destination within the U.S. The aliens’ backgrounds and health status at the time of their crossing are unknown. But, after the fact, officials learned that more than 18 percent of illegal immigrant families and 20 percent of unaccompanied minorswho recently crossed the U.S. border tested COVID-positive before border agents released them into the interior.

Moreover, trusted border sources revealed that, exclusive of their immigration offenses, 15 percent of border crossers have criminal records. Edgar Campos-Campos, for example, a previously deported and now detained Mexican national, was convicted of aggravated statutory rape in Bedford County, Tenn. Immigration law, until Department of Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas redefined to his advantage what criminal behavior is, banned convicted felons from reentry. In his memo to Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting director Tae D. Johnson, Mayorkas also doubled down on keeping the border crisis overheated when he pronounced that “undocumented non-citizens,” as he calls illegal immigrants, won’t be deported unless they represent a threat to border security, national security or public safety.

The contrast between airport security and open border insecurity proves that the U.S. isn’t a serious country. If the federal government should suddenly become motivated to protect its citizens, the border could be secured in little time. Israel can share its approach. Last month, Israel Aerospace Industries, a defense contractor, introduced REX MKII, a remote-controlled robot that can patrol border zones and track infiltrators. The unmanned vehicle can be tablet or manually controlled to achieve the most effective movement or surveillance functions. REX MKII is the latest addition to the drone technology world. Proponents claim that semi-autonomous machines, like the four-wheel-drive robot REX MKII, provide a large range of protection as they gather intelligence. The Israeli military currently uses a smaller but similar vehicle called the Jaguar to patrol Israel’s border with the Gaza Strip.

Israel is keenly aware of threats from foreign enemies, but the U.S. is indifferent to the identical risks. Former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott, ousted by Biden after his 30-year career defending the homeland, said that terrorists and other criminals, now aware that the border is open, are diligently trying to cross into the U.S. Scott said that criminals want to gain access to the U.S. interior. Statistically, Scott added, the widely available public CBP statistics prove that every year the illegal entries always include rapists, murderers and potential terrorists. “Those all exist in who we actually catch,” Scott said, concluding that “to think there is not just as bad or worse people in those getting away would be naive.”

Scott’s credible warnings should be heeded. Moreover, last year’s DHS Assessment Threat predicted the 15,000-strong Haitian surge, also ignored. Neither Biden nor his immigration czar Vice President Kamala Harris has been to the border, proof of their superficiality. DHS Secretary Mayorkas continues to undermine national security and subvert immigration law with his dangerous statements and inaction. In the Biden White House, naïveté, to Scott’s assessment, reigns.

Elanco Arrogance Inspires Mom To Run For School Board

Elanco Arrogance Inspires Mom To Run For School Board — A silver lining in the dark cloud of the last two years is that citizens are waking up and getting involved.

Jennifer Jarvis of Lancaster County, Pa. attended her first school board meeting last month. She was concerned about the Eastern Lancaster County School District’s (Elanco) stringent mandatory mask policy and the affect it would have on her seven-year-old son who has autism and a sensory processing disorder.

The school board brushed her concerns aside with condescension and arrogance.

Mrs. Jarvis wouldn’t quit, though, and her story hit a nerve. Other parents came to her side.

The board backed down and exemptions to the pointless, if not dangerous, rule became easy to come by.

Oh but the hornet’s nest was kicked. If you can’t trust your elected officials to do what’s right when they aren’t being watched, you can’t trust your elected officials.

Mrs. Jarvis decided to launch a last minute write-in campaign for the Nov. 2 school board election. Four seats are contested. All incumbents are running but besides Ms. Jarvis there are two other write-in candidates.

She says one thinks like her but they are not coordinating their campaigns. The other thinks the opposite of her.

Mrs. Jarvis, though, seems to have captured the imagination. People are approaching her with concerns long ignored.

One person described how a copy of Lighter Than My Shadow by Katie Green had been circulated from the Garden Spot High School/Middle School Library, and the school officials shrugged off complaints.

The book, ostensibly about an eating disorder, includes illustrations of sexual relations that are rather graphic for a school book.

See below.

Sorry.

Mrs. Jarvis said that someone from neighboring Conestoga Valley School District informed her that district is planning an in-school Covid vaccination clinic. She investigated and confirmed it is being considered.

There is a pretty solid argument that the young should remain unvaxxed. The vax might even be more dangerous than the disease for the young.

We are wishing you well Mrs. Jarvis.

Again, sorry for the below image but it was in a school book.

September BLS Report Boon To Open Immigration Boosters

September BLS Report Boon To Open Immigration Boosters

By Joe Guzzardi

For the second consecutive month, Wall Street analysts and media business forecasters badly missed the Bureau of Labor Statistic’s job creation total. Dow Jones projected 500,000 new jobs for September, a greater than 300,000 misfire after the true BLS number came in at 194,000. Television commentators were aghast at their second straight BLS whiff. August’s expected jobs creation total was predicted to be 720,000, which turned out to be a more inaccurate forecast than September’s when the so-called experts were off the mark by 485,000 jobs. In August, the economy created a mere 235,000 jobs.

September BLS Report Boon To Open Immigration Boosters

No surprise that COVID-19 took the brunt of the blame for the steep declines, particularly among workers in education and local/state employment, but also among bus drivers, food service workers and substitute teachers. Another variable that added to the dismal September results was the disappearance from the labor force of many older, low-wage workers still fearful about COVID-19 and its Delta variant. A historic 11 million jobs are open and available. As far as the economy and job creation are concerned, the U.S. is still in COVID-19’s grasp.

“We’re hiring” signs are everywhere, yet few workers have stepped up to fill the jobs. Although openings are at or near an all-time record, one hurdle to attracting employees is that many of the positions require in-person work for construction, hospitality, delivery services or warehousing, the exact types of jobs too many Americans shun in the current environment. Thanks to the pandemic fear the government and scare-mongering media have instilled in the general public, potential workers stay away from close-contact employment. Consequently, most job seekers are hopeful of finding mostly unavailable remote work. A recent review of the ZipRecruiter websitefound that only one in 10 postings offered remote employment.

When workers are in short supply, the clarion call for more immigration inevitably follows. Bill Kristol, for example, once a conservative, now a Democrat, and always an immigration advocate, put out a tweet which proclaimed that immigration could solve the economy’s employment doldrums. Kristol wrote: “We can debate infrastructure, tax policy, government spending, etc. But it’s not a close call as to the one thing that would do the most for our economy across the board: More immigration. Both ‘skilled’ and ‘unskilled.’ Which the Administration and Congress have done nothing on.”

Well – not exactly nothing. Kristol must not be paying attention to the immigration news. Encouraging illegal immigration, bringing Afghan evacuees to the U.S. and raising the refugee cap are definitely something. Soon the U.S. will have a worker surplus. The 15,000 Haitians who surged the border, the 50,000 or more Afghanistan evacuees and the 125,000 refugees that Biden has committed to for fiscal 2021-22, and the 2 million released-at-the-border illegal aliens will inevitably receive employment authorization. Also on their way to compete for jobs in the U.S. labor pool are the annual 1 million-plus legal immigrants who, as part of their permanent residency, receive lifetime valid work permits. Finally, add about 700,000 guest workers that traditionally enter the U.S. to perform jobs which range from medical doctors to agriculture-based employees.

The approximately 1 million legal and 2 million illegal immigrants, the evacuees, the refugees and the guest workers will go a long way to making Kristol and the immigration lobby’s dreams come true. And if Congress passes the reconciliation bill that it’s kicking around, about 8 million more aliens will be granted amnesty, receive legal status and work permits. COVID-19 restrictions could impact the foreign-born arrivals, but illegal immigrant amnesty candidates already represent several million work permits.

High immigration and the lower wages immigrants earn harm those that can least withstand economic setbacks – American blacks and Hispanics, other minorities, the disabled, recently arrived low-skilled legal immigrants and others without a college degree. More immigration, regardless of how much it may hurt Americans who fund it, is the blueprint that the Biden administration has, to the disappointment of most, chosen to follow, and is committed to.

Vitamin D Insufficiency May Account for Almost Nine of Ten COVID-19 Deaths

Vitamin D Insufficiency May Account for Almost Nine of Ten COVID-19 Deaths –Our headline is unchanged from the one on the National Institutions of Health (NIH) website for which this claim can be found.

It’s from a report by Hermann Brenner and Ben Schöttker, which was published Nov. 27, 2020.

The researchers say that based on data from Medical University Hospital Heidelberg at that start of the pandemic the results imply that 87% of COVID-19 deaths may be statistically attributed to vitamin D insufficiency and could potentially be avoided by eliminating vitamin D insufficiency.

Sure you all heard about this right?

Brenner and Schöttker recommended that rational vitamin D supplementation whose safety has been proven in an extensive body of research should be promoted and initiated to limit the toll of the pandemic even before the final proof of efficacy in preventing COVID-19 deaths by randomized trials.

This happened right? I mean you saw all those passive-aggressive public service announcements on TV and social media pushing the use of inexpensive vitamin D supplements, right?

Oh sorry, those were for the vax.

Actually, if you are a regular reader here you would have been informed last August.

The establishment, though, almost seems to be keeping vitamin D a secret. It’s enough to make you believe in conspiracy theories.

You can read Brenner’s and Schöttker’s full report at https://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/12/12/3642/htm

On an even gloomier note, the CDC says that on Oct. 8 — with 76.4 percent of those 12 or older having at least one shot — there were 2,196 Covid deaths. On Oct. 8, 2020 there were 681 Covid deaths.

If it needs to be pointed out, nobody was vaccinated in 2020.

We fear for the winter.
