The Fleecing of the UNH Students

Granite Grok - 4 hours 13 min ago

A recent article was published in the NH Journal about a UNH professor requiring his students to: “find someone to accuse of being racist, homophobic, or ableist and “call them out” in order to get credit for a communications class at the state-funded college.”

Edward Reynolds, a communications professor and weight lifting coach, gained notoriety this week on social media when one of the requirements for his class hit the “Libs of TikTok” account.

Since New Hampshire taxpayers help fund UNH, this is an example of the education the students will receive at your expense. More WOKE Critical Race Theory-focused indoctrination versus, learning communication skills that the students can take to their chosen career. 

Not only are the taxpayers in New Hampshire paying for this garbage, the students who pay the tuition are forced to pay for this too.

People are fed up with a costly education at any level that seeks to indoctrinate our kids into a radicalized worldview.  Parents want their children educated for a future. This is not only a scam on everyone involved, it’s contributing to the illiteracy problem this country faces.

For all of this woke indoctrination from the white professor, what about his black and brown students? How does this help prepare them for a future career? He’s missing a real opportunity to educate those students too.

By not giving his black and brown students a real education in communication, he limits their skills. Maybe that is part of the institutionalized racism we are hearing about. Maybe the white professor in all of his wokeness showed his own racism by denying his black and brown students real knowledge if they take his class.

Here’s an idea Professor Woke, educate all of your students. Give them all a chance at a future, especially your brown and black students. They all deserve an opportunity to succeed in life.  A quality education will open doors, illiteracy will close them.

DOD Whistleblowers: MISCARRIAGES Up 279%, CANCER Up 296%, NEUROLOGICAL ISSUES Up 1000%

Granite Grok - 5 hours 44 min ago

Governor Sununu, you are on notice!!!

Every day there is more credible evidence that Americans have been lied to regarding the efficacy and safety of the Covid “vaccines” – and Governor Sununu is responsible for helping disseminate that false narrative.

Related: Dr. Robert Malone: mRNA Covid Vaccines Will “Often Cause PERMANENT DAMAGE in Children’s Critical Organs”

He has zealously spent millions and pursued actions that have filled the coffers of pharmaceutical companies… many who, in turn, have filled his.

The latest disturbing credible evidence comes from three brave DOD whistleblowers (all doctors) who extracted data out of a DOD database. Their shocking declarations regarding vaccine injuries were provided via sworn affidavits under penalty of perjury, and presented to Senator Ron Johnson’s Covid Panel by their attorney, Tom Renz.

Per Renz’s testimony to the panel (video below), the DOD data includes the following disturbing findings:

Miscarriages increased by 300% over the 5 year average – almost.”

“We saw almost 300% increase in cancer over the 5 year average.”

Neurological issues which would affect our pilots, over 1,000% increase82K per year to 863K in 1 year.

“Our Soldiers are being experimented on, injured, and sometimes possibly killed.”

As can be seen above, our government has not been honest with us.

 

Renz’s testimony might provide insight into the concerns that were raised by Scott Davison, the CEO of OneAmerica, a $100 billion Indianapolis-based life insurance company. A few weeks ago, he made stunning statements that “death rates are up 40% over what they were pre-pandemic” – and that most of the claims for deaths being filed are not classified as COVID-19 deaths.

Indiana Life Insurance CEO: Deaths Are Up 40% Among People Aged 18-64

It is time to end the madness, pass HB1022 to make Ivermectin available without a prescription, and hold those accountable for all of the injuries and deaths related to the vaccines.

Friday Open Thread – SNOW! SNOW! SNOW! WMUR WEATHER PANIC PORN!

Granite Grok - 6 hours 28 min ago

Yes, we need an occasional alert or update, but like with their COVID Panic Porn, there’s only so many times you can tell us “we THINK this is how hard the wind will blow and we THINK this is where the snow will fall (and how much).

Look, it’s NH. Look, we get Nor’Easters.  We can deal with it – its not a Snowpocalypse – that was the Blizzard of ’78 and mostly in MA (I was in school in Boston at the time).

So, your threat, your thoughts – make them as clean as the driven snow (or not).

One of Fauci’s NIAID Scientist Says It is Time to Drop The Masks in Public Schools

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-01-28 23:30 +0000

Politics always trumps science especially when science has become so dependent on politics for funding. To think that relationship wouldn’t end up being one way is not just naive it’s absurd. That’s doesn’t mean science can’t happen.

But the people doing it are always going to want two things. To keep their jobs and to get more funding. This means you must appease your political sugar daddy and the results are – well, look at the past two years.

Craptastic public health failures at every turn. And while not everyone agrees, some folks who were going that line have the sense to realize that enough is enough.

Margery Smelkinson, Ph.D. is an infectious disease specialist. She works at Tony Fauci’s NIAID and she’s out against masking kids in schools.

 

 

She’s called for the curtain on more than just masking.

 

Her Atlantic essay cautioned against “a pivot” to higher-grade masks, which Montgomery County started distributing in schools this month. The FDA has not approved N95s for children, and Chinese-made KN95s require a “very tight seal” that is “unrealistic” in schools, Smelkinson wrote.

 

We’ve seen several such calls more notably at places like Plymouth University.

Some local boards and committees have also considered an evolution to N95 masks in their quest to keep the nightmare alive and kicking. Like Plymouth University, it’s a knee-jerk action without any regard to the issues related to such an edict.

 

Not for nothin’, but the N95 respirator is an OSHA-regulated piece of protective equipment. There are lots of rules (here’s one example). That means there are conditions and guidelines for not just use but proper and effective use, especially when employers require them of employees.

Employers should reference this guide to help educate their employees on the proper use and limitations of this type of PPE. Teach them how to use it and for how long. There is a checklist for fit-testing, and several other goodies, not mentioned in the email to faculty and students.

And implementing the N95 without proper training or an understanding of proper fit would be pointless. The same guide also notes several issues that interfere with the effectiveness of the N95.

 

The N95 also increases the likelihood of side effects like hypoxia, dizziness, headaches, and the re-inhalation of contaminants our bodies rely on an unobstructed exhale to remove. But another example of the dangers created y politicizing public health and weaponizing the flu almost no one needs to fear.

But that ship sailed, listed, burned, and sank. We’re left with the wreck and no good way to get to it to rescue the millions trapped in its memory.

Margery Smelkinson is trying to ease people back from the COVID ledge, despite having helped lead them there but then, that’s science. You look at a thing and then come to realize the circumstances are other than you once believed or have been proven wrong.

Smelkinson’s not admitting she was wrong, she is saying we’ve done this, and now it’s time to stop. The problem there is that none of this had much to do with science or public health. It was always political and the politicians aren’t down with their play. If it suits them the part played by Margery Smelkinson Ph. D. could be recast.

In more tyrannical regimes no one would hear from Margery ever again. A circumstance we’re a lot closer to today than we were two years ago. Blame whomever you want but we need to stop heading in that direction and go back or no one will be writing these sorts of op-eds for The Atlantic or anyone else, ever again.

Leavitt Blasts New Hampshire Schools for Pushing Radical Ideology on Students and Parents 

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-01-28 22:00 +0000

HAMPTON, NH – Today, Karoline Leavitt released the following statement following three situations that unfolded this week in New Hampshire’s school system:

“This week alone, it was revealed that college students at the University of New Hampshire were asked to accuse their fellow students of being ‘ableist, racist, or homophobic,’ middle school students in Derry are being sent to detention to learn ‘compliance‘ if they are not properly wearing masks, and the teachers union at my alma mater, Timberlane Regional School District, blasted concerned parents as causing ‘interference‘ in their child’s education.

Let me be very clear – students should not be asked to accuse one another of racism, children should not be forced to wear masks, and a parents’ involvement in their child’s education is NOT interference, it is their right. Unfortunately, our teachers unions and educators have forgotten they work on behalf of the taxpayers and our curriculum is failing our students. A good education is the foundation for a successful life, and I will fight day and night to ensure New Hampshire’s students receive one. When I am elected to Congress, I will be a vocal advocate for school choice, academic excellence, state and local control, parental rights, and ultimately, the abolishment of the Department of Education. The power belongs to the parents and the students, not the unions and the system.”

Fighting for Deceased Donor Rights in New Hampshire

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-01-28 20:30 +0000

As of March 15, 2021, a new federal policy went into effect that totally diminished hope for New Hampshire residents who are on the current “Transplant Wait List.”

The federal government’s contracted agency UNOS, (United Network for Organ Sharing), which is responsible for deceased donor organ distribution throughout the U.S.—made a significant policy change that devastated prospective New Hampshire organ recipients by expanding the “consideration zone” to a 250 nautical mile radius around a donor hospital. This means most organs harvested in the Granite State are now going to big metropolitan cities in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

Those states with their large populations now fall within the new zone. These urban areas have very lengthy waitlists with much longer wait times and virtually no organs are being offered to NH citizens since this policy took effect.

As someone who was on dialysis for almost four years while also on the waitlist for a kidney transplant opportunity, I’ll state that this new policy is a “punch in the gut” and discriminatory to NH people.

We want to thank NH State Rep Jose Cambrils for this Op-Ed. If you have an Op-Ed or LTE
you would like us to consider, please submit it to Editor@GraniteGrok.com.

I was blessed to have received a life-saving kidney transplant in February of 2020. But, if I were still on the waitlist today, I would no longer have any reasonable expectation of getting a deceased donor organ.

It should be noted that for every year a patient is on dialysis, there is a cumulative 7% increase in the probability that they will die while waiting for a transplant.

The good news for our NH citizens is, that I introduced House Bill 583 in the 2021 session.

HB583 would allow registered NH drivers that sign up to be organ donors, the ability to direct their donation to local residents first. We have a long tradition of “neighbor helping neighbor” in this great state. Our driver licenses are legal documents that citizens are able to use to designate where they’d prefer their organs to be utilized via the DMV database.

A NH First policy will be made an option with this legislation. Then if any organs could not be matched with a Granite State, recipient, the organs would go to the next closest state with a matching patient.

This issue is all about a private individual’s right to designate their organs after death. No federal or state government or agency has the ownership of a citizen’s organs.

The Bill has received tremendous support. It passed the House Transportation Committee with a unanimous, bipartisan, 19 – 0 vote in October 2021. Then on January 5, 2022, it passed the full NH House with a unanimous 353 – 0 voice vote.

It is now in the hands of the NH Senate Health and Human Services Committee.

I sincerely hope the Senate will see fit to move HB583 forward so that Governor Sununu can review it and hopefully sign it into law.

This critical life-saving Bill will restore the only hope that our transplant list citizens will have. If we turn this bill into law, NH will once again be “first in the nation” in ensuring that “neighbors” get the first opportunities to receive these gifts of life from fellow Granite Staters. Please let the Senate know that you support HB 583, and help out your NH friends and families in need of an organ.

Nobody’s Buying Old Joe

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-01-28 19:00 +0000

Down in deepest Maryland, our traveling observer, Weegee, discovers that a store at a satellite airport dismally orbiting the twin Death Stars of Baltimore and Washington cannot sell sleepy Joe tchotchkes. Yes, there is one poll that money cannot, indeed will not, buy. Read our discussion:

You can buy a bobblehead Joe (above) from the National Archives store, because they have no choice, but airport shops need to make (a lot of) money to stay in business.

Weegee:
I was at BWI today, the America! store has lots of Trump,Obama and Hildebeast merchandise, yet no Biden merchandise, they do have Fauci bobbleheads, but no China Joe ones.
Yah 81M Soros ballots.
I always check out America! at BWI because i think they have a good read on the political pulse.

Mike:
Nobody’s buying Buyden.
Reliably lefty staff, but they are in business to sell stuff.
Simply put, he’s a sadder sack than even Hillary

Weegee:
Nope and he’s the first president who has virtually no presence at America! (the store)
For a Lefty staff they sure have the Trump stuff out front and center- you have to look for the Hildebeast stuff – yes you can get Trump/Obama/Hildebeast/Bush bobbleheads.
Not to mention huge stacks of MAGA hats

Mike:
The one poll that money not only cannot, but will not buy, better even than the betting sites.
A store at a satellite airport dismally orbiting the twin Death Stars of Baltimore and Washington cannot sell sleepy Joe tchotchkes.

Weegee:
Yeah that tells you just how popular president asterisk and the woman of easy virtue are with the travelling public. And did you see that Biden’s brain had a multiple bit error today?

Mike:
A prefrontal cortex infartion?
(Spelling intentional)

Does Pedophilia Book Okay’d for Bedford Students Violate Obscenity Laws?

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-01-28 17:30 +0000

Many years ago, a Bedford teacher was caught pushing Marxism on the students in the Personal Finance Class. Instead of children learning how to balance a checkbook or understand simple and compound interest, they were force-fed Marxist ideology.

It was an opportunity missed because the graduates need personal finance skills in the future. Instead, Bedford students were learning why they can’t make it in America.

The parents who brought this pro-Marxist book forward were upset about the message of Jesus being a wine-guzzling vagrant, but the more disturbing part was the Marxist political agenda that was being pushed on the Bedford students.

Since I was a resident at that time, I spoke before the Bedford School Board asking them to teach these kids personal finance! Is it too much to ask that they are educated versus indoctrinated? (1:17)

 

 

There were other books that were challenged after that for the explicit content. Tim Mayes, former Superintendent finally conceded and called for a panel of parents to review the books that would be assigned to children in the school. I’m not sure whatever happened after that, but Bedford parents are back to questioning the books that their kids are reading.

Fast forward to today and Lawn Boy is another controversial book that was challenged in Bedford, and during the reconsideration process to remove the book, the panel, Mike Fournier (Superintendent), and School Board all said the book was appropriate for the students.

Here is what parents reported was included in the book:

What if I told you I touched another guy’s d**k? What if I told you I sucked it? I was 10 years old, but it’s true. I put Doug Goebbel’s d**k in my mouth. I was in fourth grade. It was no big deal, he sucked mine too. And you know what? It wasn’t terrible.”

“In fourth grade, at a church youth-group meeting, out in the bushes behind the parsonage, I touched Doug Goble’s d**k, and he touched mine. In fact, there were even some mouths involved.

You can see one parent in Leander, TX talk about the issue she had with Lawn Boy. In this case, like many other parents, they are objecting.

Like all books assigned in school, the questions I ask are, what is the literary value? Will children be able to expand their vocabulary so that they can better prepare for their college essays? Are they reading something that is at grade level or above so that they are continually improving their reading skills and comprehension? Is there a meaningful message in the book that students can learn from? Something that maybe teaches them the virtues of courage, honesty, and integrity.

This is what parents are looking for, not pornographic descriptions of child sex scenes.

When I see something like this, I begin to wonder who would want children exposed to this pornographic material? Does Bedford have another predator working in the school trying to groom children by sexualizing them with this kind of content?

How many teachers have we seen arrested in New Hampshire for sexual assault against children over the last few months? I can recall two. Who benefits from this kind of sexualization of children? Sexual predators.

As a parent, I’d want to know who insists on assigning this book to children in Bedford, and then I’d want to keep mine as far away from them as possible. I have to say, I’ll never look at Mike Fournier, Superintendent the same way again.  Why would he think this is ok for children?

Bedford’s parents drove their last Superintendent out of the district when he allowed one of the guidance counselors to speak in favor of a sexual predator who had worked in the district as a guidance counselor. Have they learned nothing from that fiasco?

Parents are fed up with the garbage and mediocrity their kids are receiving in their local public schools. They expect better. There is a reason we have classical literature that has withstood the test of time.

Can these students read the Federalist papers? Have they attained that level of reading in Bedford? If not, then why are they not focusing on quality over this obscene content?

Finally, there are obscenity laws in New Hampshire. I wrote about that here.

If you do not want your child sexualized to benefit predators, then look into challenging obscene materials assigned to your children.  Start taking these examples to your County Attorney and ask them to do something.

=========================================================
NOTE: This is copied from a parent who speaks for many when it comes to the inappropriate sexualized books available to children. Remember, the schools are now tasked with a child’s social and emotional well-being, and they can’t even get this right:

Linda Trigalet

January 9 a

I prayed a long time before I decided to speak out about the reading material at the school. When I did, the last thing I expected was for my phone and messages to blow up with stories from former students, adults and even a couple of strangers. I could do a story a day for the rest of the month but tonight, I’ll only share one story. She was abused as a baby and young child. Now in elementary school, she lives in a wonderful foster home and intense, long term counseling will be in her future for many years to come. She loves playing outside and reading books. One of her favorite things is to do is curl up with a picture book and totally forget her past pain and trauma. Her vivid imagination takes her to a whole new level and she is happy when reading. This child has proactive, educated parents and tons of supported resources, unlike many of our rural, low income abuse students. Her parents long for her to be safe in school, while also having access to the library. Sadly, they can not risk their child’s mental health or life over access to books, especially these inappropriate books. Reading a book from the school library about father/daughter rape, and having to relive her trauma is not a risk they are willing to take. Bristow’s new library policy requires parents to either risk exposing their student to obscenity and explicit material OR opt their child out of school libraries. This is grossly unfair to these young students who are just learning the joy of walking into a library of books. Statistics show that 1 in 5 females and 1 in 9 males will suffer abuse before they turn 18. (And that’s the cases that are reported.) It is time for us to protect the children – we do it online w/ filters; let’s do the same thing with the written material. Let’s go Bristow Public Schools…you have options. Remove the books, not the students!

Why is Canada’s Triple Vaccinated, Negative-Tested Justin Trudeau In Self-Quarantine

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-01-28 16:00 +0000

According to Justin Trudeau, he has been exposed to COVID 9. The triple-vaccinated Prime Minister Vaccine administrator tested negative, but he’s gone into hiding nonetheless. Protocol, you see.

Five days.

No Trudeau for at least five days while he hides in his home. But is the otherwise healthy, young, triple-vaccinated negative-tested Trudeau hiding because of COVID or because of this?

Truckers.

 



 

Many Canadian truck drivers are participating due to a January 15 deadline that forces unvaccinated drivers to observe a two-week quarantine and COVID-19 test before crossing into Canada from the U.S.

The U.S. also implemented new restrictions starting January 22 that will require non-U.S. individuals entering the nation at the Canadian border to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

 

They also mentioned something about supply chain issues in the US. Not Canada, the US.

Drivers are forming up and headed to the Nations Capitol to express their dissatisfaction with the mandate and the loss of work. A small army of unvaccinated truckers milling about honking horns, shouting. What is soy-boy, boy-band Justin to do?

Quarantine.

He was exposed, don’t you know. EXPOSED!

And if Truckers are going to jam the streets and shut down the city, he might as well stay inside where it’s warm and cozy.

Five days may not be long enough. He’ll have to expose himself again.

Schreibtischtäter Part 2: Why They Kill

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-01-28 14:30 +0000

Killing COVID Patients for Cash! Government has so distorted the financial model for hospitals and doctors, that you’d better have an aggressive lawyer on retainer before you venture into one for a respiratory ailment. How so?

Classic Cloward and Piven strategy – destroy the hospitals bottom up and top down in order to force us closer to state run medicine – and you all scoffed when we said that was the end goal of Obamacare: To fail so the public would demand total government takeover.

Early in 2020, we warned that restricting hospitals to COVID treatment only would bankrupt them, and force staff layoffs, which happened, of course, but never fear, because government jumped in to offer incentives for (mis)treating COVID patients, and making sure every case and every death counted towards the scary totals. How bad could that be? Let America’s Front Line Doctors explain the incentives for hospitals to maximize COVID payouts:

When we covered the very sad passing of long time Grok friend, John Irish, we told you that rigid application of inappropriate protocols, and disavowal of right to try laws mean that faceless bureaucrats, Schreibtischtäter, were killing saveable patients to suit the great narrative, and that doctors were “just following orders.” They had sold their souls to the government devil!

Surely that can’t be right, Mike? Unfortunately, so. There are stories from all over our great nation that confirm most hospitals and the corporate doctors employed by them are incentivized and intimidated to “stick to the program.” There are a small number of good news stories of aggressive lawyers, lucky escapes, and even of families smuggling lifesaving drugs like Ivermectin into hospitals to save loved ones. Did we really allow OUR GOVERNMENT to do this to us? Sadly, yes. This is going to be a big hole we must dig ourselves out of. Be wary, be safe, and I’m not talking about running from the Omicold!

A Familiar Game Plan

Libertarian Leanings - Fri, 2022-01-28 14:18 +0000

Julie Kelly:  Meet the Capitol Police’s New Spy Chief

When most Americans hear the term “Capitol Police,” they likely conjure visions of uniformed officers manning metal detectors at the numerous congressional buildings or helping tourists navigate the sprawling Capitol grounds: a D.C. version of a mall cop.

That imagery, however, is in stark contrast to reality as Democrats have weaponized yet another federal agency to target their political enemies on the Right.

After January 6, 2021, Capitol Police officials announced plans to expand beyond the legislatively authorized purview of the agency and open offices in Florida and California, as well as in other states. Congress overwhelmingly supported a bill last year to fork over $2.1 billion in new funding to the Capitol Police. Now flush with cash and immune from any serious public oversight, the agency is returning the favor by spying on dissidents of the Biden regime.

[...]

Far from ensuring the safety of legislators and their staffs, the underlying political motive is obvious to anyone who’s been paying attention the past several years: the Capitol Police, acting as the Stasi of the Democratic Party, will collect dirt on Republicans under the pretense of national security then leak gossipy details to an always-compliant news media.

Journalists will then source the leaks to anonymous “intelligence officials” to legitimize any incriminating disclosures, which in turn will prompt Democrats to call for immediate investigations and criminal referrals—see the January 6 select committee for how this successful formula works.

In fact, an official from the Obama Administration, the birthplace of Russiagate and other political espionage efforts, is heading up the new endeavor.

Wake up and Smile – Mom to School Board: “We’re Done Asking…We Are Unmasking Our Kids”

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-01-28 13:00 +0000

Video of moms bringing the rain on local school boards is a hot ticket these days, so this should be equally pleasing. This mom from San Diego is a former Miss California and is the wife of a former NFL quarterback.

And Carrie Boller has had enough of this crap, and she’s not taking any more of it.

 

I’m simply here to tell you to unmask our children. We’re done begging. In fact, we’re done asking. We are going to unmask our children tonight. The pandemic is over! The parents are done. We’re done asking you, public servants, for permission.

 

I’m not sure how that’s going to work out but Carries not just throwing shade.

 

I would love to run for school board to replace all of you. So I’m going to promise you tonight that I will campaign against you, I will, I will fundraise against you, and I will make sure that none of you ever serve in a public space ever again.”

 

Carri Boller is not, by the way, new to this sort of thing. This former Miss California (Carrie Prejean). In the Miss America pageant, she was asked a question by gay blogger Perez Hilton about gay marriage, and her answer did not toe the line on the approved narrative.

 

I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land that you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage and, you know what, in my country and my family I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anyone out there but that’s how I was raised and that’s how I think it should be between a man and a woman.

 

She thinks it’s great that people can have that choice, but it’s not hers. Her reward for being honest was not being allowed a choice herself. You think like them or keep it to yourself.

Carrie didn’t get that message, and we’re so proud of her for that.

Cackling on the High Court! – What if Biden Nominated Kamala Harris to the Supreme Court Just To Be Rid of Her?

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-01-28 11:30 +0000

A hallmark of Joe Biden’s presidency to date is being or doing the wrong thing at every opportunity. Even Franklin Pierce, New Hampshire’s less than stellar contribution to the office, looks like an all-star compared to Biden.

Only Harris could be worse. So what to do?

He can’t kill her (that’s a Clinton thing) and she’s not going to get better. Slow Joe has enough problems – well, this administration does, Joe thinks Harris is the President and thank God she is not; even secular-humanist Dems would agree. Kamala bad. But what to do?

Their VP diversity hire is about what you’d expect from someone who has never been much else or good at any of the jobs she’s been given by the Party. Lousy AG, crappy Senator, miserable VP.

Why not saddle the nation with her for 40 years by appointing her to the US Supreme Court?

Can you imagine?

I can’t, and lucky for us neither can Whoever is Running the Biden Administration. While there’s been buzz it’s mostly the media looking for clicks. No one in their Left mind wants to make a monument out of the failure that is Kamala Harris.

There are plenty of more capable progressive black women (whatever that is) who are at least capable of being a judge even if it’s an activist judge. If that’s to be Biden’s only enduring legacy aside from being a sh!t president, he’s not picking Harris to be the one.

I’m not even sure a Democrat-majority Senate would confirm her, she’s that bad. And she’d be cackling up at the court for decades.

Cackling on the High Court!

Who the heck would want to clerk for that?

Authoritarian Madness: The Slippery Slope from Lockdowns to Concentration Camps

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-01-28 02:30 +0000

“All the Dachaus must remain standing. The Dachaus, the Belsens, the Buchenwald, the Auschwitzes—all of them. They must remain standing because they are a monument to a moment in time when some men decided to turn the Earth into a graveyard. Into it they shoveled all of their reason, their logic, their knowledge, but worst of all, their conscience. And the moment we forget this, the moment we cease to be haunted by its remembrance, then we become the gravediggers.”— Rod Serling, Deaths-Head Revisited

In the politically charged, polarizing tug-of-war that is the debate over COVID-19, we find ourselves buffeted by fear over a viral pandemic that continues to wreak havoc with lives and the economy, threats of vaccine mandates and financial penalties for noncompliance, and discord over how to legislate the public good without sacrificing individual liberty.

The discord is getting more discordant by the day.

Just recently, for instance, the Salt Lake Tribune Editorial Board suggested that government officials should mandate mass vaccinations and deploy the National Guard “to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere.”

In other words, lock up the unvaccinated and use the military to determine who gets to be “free.”

These tactics have been used before.

This is why significant numbers of people are worried: because this is the slippery slope that starts with well-meaning intentions for the greater good and ends with tyrannical abuses no one should tolerate.

For a glimpse at what the future might look like if such a policy were to be enforced, look beyond America’s borders.

In Italy, the unvaccinated are banned from restaurants, bars and public transportation, and could face suspensions from work and monthly fines. Similarly, France will ban the unvaccinated from most public venues.

In Austria, anyone who has not complied with the vaccine mandate could face fines up to $4100. Police will be authorized to carry out routine checks and demand proof of vaccination, with penalties of as much as $685 for failure to do so.

In China, which has adopted a zero tolerance, “zero COVID” strategy, whole cities—some with populations in the tens of millions—are being forced into home lockdowns for weeks on end, resulting in mass shortages of food and household supplies. Reports have surfaced of residents “trading cigarettes for cabbage, dishwashing liquid for apples and sanitary pads for a small pile of vegetables. One resident traded a Nintendo Switch console for a packet of instant noodles and two steamed buns.”

For those unfortunate enough to contract COVID-19, China has constructed “quarantine camps” throughout the country: massive complexes boasting thousands of small, metal boxes containing little more than a bed and a toilet. Detainees—including children, pregnant women and the elderly— were reportedly ordered to leave their homes in the middle of the night, transported to the quarantine camps in buses and held in isolation.

If this last scenario sounds chillingly familiar, it should.

Eighty years ago, another authoritarian regime established more than 44,000 quarantine camps for those perceived as “enemies of the state”: racially inferior, politically unacceptable or simply noncompliant.

While the majority of those imprisoned in the Nazi concentration camps, forced labor camps, incarceration sites and ghettos were Jews, there were also Polish nationals, gypsies, Russians, political dissidents, resistance fighters, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and homosexuals.

Culturally, we have become so fixated on the mass murders of Jewish prisoners by the Nazis that we overlook the fact that the purpose of these concentration camps were initially intended to “incarcerate and intimidate the leaders of political, social, and cultural movements that the Nazis perceived to be a threat to the survival of the regime.”

As the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum explains:

“Most prisoners in the early concentration camps were political prisoners—German Communists, Socialists, Social Democrats—as well as Roma (Gypsies), Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, and persons accused of ‘asocial’ or socially deviant behavior. Many of these sites were called concentration camps. The term concentration camp refers to a camp in which people are detained or confined, usually under harsh conditions and without regard to legal norms of arrest and imprisonment that are acceptable in a constitutional democracy.”

How do you get from there to here, from Auschwitz concentration camps to COVID quarantine centers?

Connect the dots.

You don’t have to be unvaccinated or a conspiracy theorist or even anti-government to be worried about what lies ahead. You just have to recognize the truth in the warning: power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

This is not about COVID-19. Nor is it about politics, populist movements, or any particular country.

This is about what happens when good, generally decent people—distracted by manufactured crises, polarizing politics, and fighting that divides the populace into warring “us vs. them” camps—fail to take note of the looming danger that threatens to wipe freedom from the map and place us all in chains.

It’s about what happens when any government is empowered to adopt a comply-or-suffer-the-consequences mindset that is enforced through mandates, lockdowns, penalties, detention centers, martial law, and a disregard for the rights of the individual.

The slippery slope begins in just this way, with propaganda campaigns about the public good being more important than individual liberty, and it ends with lockdowns and concentration camps.

The danger signs are everywhere.

Claudio Ronco, a 66-year-old Orthodox Jew and a specialist in 18th-century music, recognizes the signs. Because of his decision to remain unvaccinated, Ronco is trapped inside his house, unable to move about in public without a digital vaccination card. He can no longer board a plane, check into a hotel, eat at a restaurant or get a coffee at a bar. He has been ostracized by friends, shut out of public life, and will soon face monthly fines for insisting on his right to bodily integrity and individual freedom.

For all intents and purposes, Ronco has become an undesirable in the eyes of the government, forced into isolation so he doesn’t risk contaminating the rest of the populace.

This is the slippery slope: a government empowered to restrict movements, limit individual liberty, and isolate “undesirables” to prevent the spread of a disease is a government that has the power to lockdown a country, label whole segments of the population a danger to national security, and force those undesirables—a.k.a. extremists, dissidents, troublemakers, etc.—into isolation so they don’t contaminate the rest of the populace.

The world has been down this road before, too.

Others have ignored the warning signs. We cannot afford to do so.

As historian Milton Mayer recounts in his seminal book on Hitler’s rise to power, They Thought They Were Free:

“Most of us did not want to think about fundamental things and never had. There was no need to. Nazism gave us some dreadful, fundamental things to think about—we were decent people‑—and kept us so busy with continuous changes and ‘crises’ and so fascinated, yes, fascinated, by the machinations of the ‘national enemies’, without and within, that we had no time to think about these dreadful things that were growing, little by little, all around us.”

The German people chose to ignore the truth and believe the lie.

They were not oblivious to the horrors taking place around them. As historian Robert Gellately points out, “[A]nyone in Nazi Germany who wanted to find out about the Gestapo, the concentration camps, and the campaigns of discrimination and persecutions need only read the newspapers.”

The warning signs were there, blinking incessantly like large neon signs.

“Still,” Gellately writes, “the vast majority voted in favor of Nazism, and in spite of what they could read in the press and hear by word of mouth about the secret police, the concentration camps, official anti-Semitism, and so on. . . . [T]here is no getting away from the fact that at that moment, ‘the vast majority of the German people backed him.’”

Half a century later, the wife of a prominent German historian, neither of whom were members of the Nazi party, opined: “[O]n the whole, everyone felt well. . . . And there were certainly eighty percent who lived productively and positively throughout the time. . . . We also had good years. We had wonderful years.”

In other words, as long as their creature comforts remained undiminished, as long as their bank accounts remained flush, as long as they weren’t being locked up, locked down, discriminated against, persecuted, starved, beaten, shot, stripped, jailed or killed, life was good.

Life is good in America, too, as long as you’re able to keep cocooning yourself in political fantasies that depict a world in which your party is always right and everyone else is wrong, while distracting yourself with bread-and-circus entertainment that bears no resemblance to reality.

Indeed, life in America may be good for the privileged few who aren’t being locked up, locked down, discriminated against, persecuted, starved, beaten, shot, stripped, jailed or killed, but it’s getting worse by the day for the rest of us.

Which brings me back to the present crisis: COVID-19 is not the Holocaust, and those who advocate vaccine mandates, lockdowns and quarantine camps are not Hitler, but this still has the makings of a slippery slope.

The means do not justify the ends: we must find other ways of fighting a pandemic without resorting to mandates and lockdowns and concentration camps. To do otherwise is to lay the groundwork for another authoritarian monster to rise up and wreak havoc.

If we do not want to repeat the past, then we must learn from past mistakes.

January 27 marks Remembrance Day, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, a day for remembering those who died at the hands of Hitler’s henchmen and those who survived the horrors of the Nazi concentration camps.

Yet remembering is not enough. We can do better. We must do better.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, the world is teetering on the edge of authoritarian madness.

All it will take is one solid push for tyranny to prevail.

The San Jose Doctrine

Granite Grok - Fri, 2022-01-28 01:00 +0000

San Jose is about to pass a law requiring every gun owner to pay an annual fee and obtain liability insurance that would cover damage caused by his weapon.

The mayor of San Jose estimates that residents incur about $442 million in gun-related costs each year. Which is a crazy figure (more than $1 million per day), but let’s give him the benefit of the doubt.

The fees — which would generate at most about $1.4 million per year — will be funneled into ‘evidence-based initiatives to reduce gun violence and gun harm.’

Now, that’s pretty funny because all the available evidence suggests that the best way to reduce gun violence is to encourage more people to have guns.

But while we’re on the subject of evidence, the evidence demonstrates convincingly that every crime is committed by someone whose parents had a child. So if San Jose residents really do incur $442 million in gun-related costs each year, that figure is necessarily dwarfed by child-related costs.

Therefore, it only makes sense that, to help reduce crime of all kinds, San Jose should discourage people from having children by requiring parents to pay an annual fee and obtain liability insurance that would cover damage caused by their children — even after the children grow up and move away. In fact, they should have to get liability insurance that would cover damage caused by all their descendants — grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and so on.

The mayor of San Jose put it this way:  ‘Certainly, the Second Amendment protects every citizen’s right to own a gun. It does not require taxpayers to subsidize that right.’

It’s a non-sequitur in that subsidizing gun ownership would mean giving people money to buy guns. Probably by ‘subsidize,’ the mayor means ‘pay for unfortunate consequences of’.

But in any case, let’s apply his logic to having children:  ‘It is every citizen’s right to have a child. This does not require taxpayers to subsidize that right.’

And why stop there? Let’s apply it to receiving medical care, or getting an education, or having a retirement income, or any other entitlement that liberals like to call a ‘right’:  According to what we might call the San Jose Doctrine, just because you have a right does not require taxpayers to subsidize that right.

Goodbye Medicare, Medicaid, public schools, Social Security, government-guaranteed college loans, and so on.

Goodbye welfare. Hello, personal responsibility.

People who think San Jose is on the right track might want to look a little farther down that track before boarding that train.

Bad PR – Greg Gutfeld Features the Andy Ngo Dartmouth College Event Cancellation

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-01-27 23:30 +0000

It’s nice to see that the Right side of the blogosphere covering how Dartmouth College Administration caved to Northeast Antifa and the Dartmouth Anarchists Heckler’s vote by canceling the College Republicans’ event with Andy Ngo and Gab Nadales.

They were scared of the bad PR blowback if something happened from the Antifa side of things, but you know things have gone sideways for Dartmouth College when Greg Gutfeld covers it.

Bad PR – Greg Gutfeld Features the Andy Ngo Dartmouth College Event Cancelation

Instead, they’re getting ridiculed all over the place for being cowards and not standing up for the “values” they purport to hold. Free Speech for an event called “Extremism in America” canceled by those known to hate Free Speech?

It doesn’t get much better than that. Bad PR is bad PR – and Gutfeld is the new King of late-night comedy.

 

H/T to Jim Kofalt (Exec. Dir of 603 Alliance, NH State Rep – and Grokster!) for finding the complete show on Bitchute.

And I found this handy tool that would create embed codes for BitChute videos!

Now, I can’t abstract out just the “Dartmouth College gets ridiculed for Free Speech Cowardice” segment but it starts at 30:10.

Here’s the rough transcript I found on Fox:

ANNOUNCER: “CANCEL PARTY.”

GUTFELD: His talk about leftist violence was shut down in silence. Yes, Antifa threatened him over his stance so darkness surrendered like France. And so fastest threats are empowered by a school that acts like a coward. Journalists Andy Noe’s event at Dartmouth College at bartending correspondence school was cancelled last week after Antifa protested his appearance on campus, which has us wondering, will the school change their nickname from big green to big yellow to match the street down their backs?

Noe, who was invited by Turning Point USA and College Republicans was set to give a talk with ex-Antifa member of Gabriel Nadales, about far-left violence, it was titled extremism in America. So far, so good. We’re all opposed to extremist violence, right? Well, not so fast after the event was announced. Leftist trolls online threatened violence if the school allowed the talk to take place. Bomb squads, police dogs had to do a sweep of the venue before Andy’s arrival.

And since it’s Antifa, they also sniff for body odor. Three of the dogs had to be hospitalized. Ultimately, Dartmouth pulled the plug due to safety concerns, which is the worst excuse I’ve heard since. I can’t go out with you. You’re too attractive. And so, Dartmouth’s commitment to free speech is as strong as Brian Stelter’s commitment to Jenny Craig. Slip that one in there. So, Ari, what do you make of this story?

FLEISCHER: Well, first of all, I got waitlisted when I applied to Dartmouth, and they never told me if I got in or out, and so if they tell me now I’m getting in, I’m not going because of this.

GUTFELD: There you go. There you go. Good for you.

FLEISCHER: I did go to Middlebury and that was a school that attacked Charles Murray.

GUTFELD: That’s right. That’s right.

FLEISCHER: This is everything that’s wrong with this country right now. This is what we were talking about earlier with the ACLU. He has every right to go to that campus and give a speech and this, this practice of the left and shutting down voices they don’t agree with, in uniform and with support of school faculty and school administrators.

GUTFELD: That’s the problem.

FLEISCHER: This is the problem.

GUTFELD: Yes.

FLEISCHER: We talk about polarization in our country. This is what drives it when you cut somebody down. Don’t let them come on a college campus.

GUTFELD: You know, Guy, it’s kind of ironic, an event about leftists. It’s so obviously ironic, an event about leftist violence canceled over a threat of leftist violent.

BENSON: Yes, sort of making the point for Andy and proving the thesis of the talk. This is the pure hecklers veto. It is horrible. It incentivizes more of this stuff. And it reminds me just to make this about me. A few years ago, I spoke at Brown.

GUTFELD: Right.

BENSON: Which is a very far left Ivy League School, and there was the normal yelling and screaming and they wrote a petition this whole manifesto. They called me homophobic. I was like, who’s going to tell them? They had to bring in police. They had dogs sniffing, they were checking people for guns, like these are Brown students, they don’t have guns. But it ended up being fine. And Brown stood up to the mob and said he’s going to speak we’re protecting free speech. If you’re Dartmouth right now, and you’re getting shown up by Brown on this stuff like what’s going on in Hanover? That’s embarrassing.

GUTFELD: Yes, Kat, you know, he was also beaten up by Antifa. So, this is like, they basically just chose a side.

TIMPF: Yes, but also, I don’t know if they realize it or not, but like, obvious horrible that this happened is horrible that they beaten him up. But he’s got a bigger career because they keep doing this.

GUTFELD: That’s Streisand Effect.

TIMPF: I mean, they, there was one of the Antifa members saying, oh, like I’ll pay you if you beat him up or whatever. That’s what he claimed. It’s like, well, no, he got paid, because of what you guys did. He’s now even more famous and well known for exactly this. So, obviously, it’s a horrible thing. And obviously, not something I condone or him. But you know what? They’re not accomplishing what they think they are.

GUTFELD: Yes. You don’t condone him.

TIMPF: I don’t condone him getting beaten up, no.

GUTFELD: Oh, there you go. I got confused there, Tyrus. Last word to you.

TYRUS: Well, the good news is, is that I’m sure Twitter cancelled their accounts immediately for those you know, threats and stuff. So, that’s a good — at least those guys, they don’t they can’t use social media anymore.

GUTFELD: Yes.

TYRUS: We’re very positive to that. But, you know, I think for every person regardless of whether you’re whatever your side of the fence you are, if you’re cancelled, you’re not given a voice. Well, I kept thinking about what would be a good show for Saturday nights. It’s the canceled platform. So, if you’re cancelled, come to Fox and you get an hour and you can do your stick. Those that doesn’t come on, they can do their show. They’ll get way more. They will get way more people watching, ratings and stuff. So, not a new thing. Canceled? Give us a call. Do your show.

GUTFELD: I don’t know because that’s Kilmeade’s new hour. I don’t know if he’d be happy about that. I got to tell Kilmeade. Kilmeade, we just canceled your show.

TYRUS: Yes.

GUTFELD: I know, it hasn’t started —

TYRUS: But the good news is, once he’s cancelled, he can be a guest.

GUTFELD: There you go.

TYRUS: It all works out.

GUTFELD: Brilliant.

TYRUS: Thank you.

GUTFELD: All right. Up next, Commi-China’s absurd routine editing famous movie scene.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Granite Grok - Thu, 2022-01-27 22:00 +0000

It is with heavy hearts and a sense of great loss that we, Persian-Americans, descendants of Cyrus the Great, honor the memory of the victims of the Holocaust.

We are in solidarity with the Jewish people in their unshakable resolve that never again any aspiring individual or government would even contemplate, much less carry out, the horrors similar to the ones committed by the Nazis.

The Holocaust was the systematic annihilation of six million Jews. Denying the Holocaust is denying reality. It is shamelessly attempting to gloss over one of the most horrific crimes in history.

We join with the Jewish people on this day and days to come in frustrating the schemes of genocidal aspirants. We are particularly affronted by the past and present rulers of the Islamic Republic of Iran who have blatantly and belligerently taken upon themselves, against the wishes of honorable Iranians, the denial of the Holocaust, and the vilification of the State of Israel.

We demand, in the strongest of terms, that the hatemonger leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran abandon their foolish and shameful stance that clearly does not represent the Iranian people who have always considered Jewish people as friends, going back thousands of years.

We greatly honor the victims of the Holocaust and pray that humanity never again allows any people anywhere to suffer such a dreadful fate.
