Mississippi–A Warning for Virginians


The proud folks of The Old Dominion turned their state from Blue back to Red in their recent governor’s election. Even more dramatic is the fact that in the last twelve months, voters in various Virginia counties voted overwhelmingly to keep their Confederate monuments! In nine out of nine ballot referendums, the voters spoke, and they spoke with a loud voice! This, of course, is in line with a national poll reported by CNN that 52% of Americans wanted to keep Confederate monuments—this was even true in the New England States! In the South, the percentage in favor was even greater—between 60 to 70%. Traditional American values win when “We the people” are allowed to speak. The folks in Virginia should be proud of their victories. These triumphs are victories for all true Southerners. But with this electoral victory comes a word of caution. It takes more to defeat our enemies than just winning an election or ballot referendums. Our enemy never sleeps. Mississippi is a prime example.

Dying COVID-19 Patient Recovers After Court Orders Hospital to Administer Ivermectin

After an Illinois hospital insisted on administering expensive remdesivir to an elderly COVID-19 patient and it failed to work, the dying man’s life was saved after a court ordered that an outside medical doctor be allowed to use the inexpensive drug ivermectin to treat him over the hospital’s strenuous objections, according to the family’s lawyer.

Ivermectin tablets are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat humans with intestinal strongyloidiasis and onchocerciasis, two conditions caused by parasitic worms. Some topical forms of ivermectin are approved to treat external parasites like head lice and for skin conditions such as rosacea. The drug is also approved for use on animals.

Sen. Mike Lee planning to force a government shutdown to block Biden’s vaccine mandate

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah Sen. Mike Lee is plotting to force a government shutdown to block the Biden administration's vaccine mandate for private businesses.

Lee is joining with other Senate Republicans to block funding for enforcing the mandate.

Utah Sen. Mike Lee has joined a group of Senate Republicans who are plotting to use the threat of a government shutdown to defund the Biden administration’s vaccine or testing mandate for some private businesses.

The federal government officially runs out of money on Friday at midnight.

Politico reported Democrats are hoping to quickly pass a stopgap measure to keep the government funded past that deadline, but Lee and several other Republicans plan to object and draw out the process unless Democrats agree to remove funding for enforcement of President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate.

Forgotten Monument to Dead Orphans from Fauci’s Torturous and Deadly AIDS Testing Is Located in New York State & SHOCKING: RFK Jr. Claims Fauci Killed, Tortured, Poor Minority Orphans in 1980s

 Via sw44magnumman Brown

In 2004 Dr. Fauci’s NIH was also caught funding experiments on AIDS orphans at a New York City hospital. The Gateway Pundit reported on this dark Fauci chapter in October.

In August Gateway Pundit contributor Cassandra Fairbanks broke the story on Dr. Fauci’s use of taxpayer money to torture beagles in barbaric animal testing. Dr. Fauci funded a study in Tunisia where beagle dogs were eaten alive by parasite-infected flies.

Secretary of Defense Sends out Memo to Force Full Vaccination of All Members of the Armed Forces Under DoD Authority & Defense Secretary: Unvaccinated National Guard Members Cannot Train, Be Paid

Via Billy

A pilot buddy of mine actually brought this to Sen Johnson’s attention.  In any case, time is running out for us all…please help and look into this if you can.  It would be extremely helpful to not only me, but my fellow ~650K military brethren that are in jeopardy of losing it all due to this unlawful, immoral, and unconstitutional mandate.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that the Air Force last week announced that anyone not vaccinated for COVID is no longer eligible for a permanent change of station.

The White House’s Office of Management and Budget is telling federal agencies behind the scenes that they should refrain from suspending or firing federal workers who have not complied with Biden’s authoritarian vaccine mandate until the holidays are over, according to a memo obtained by ABC News.

The Terrible Woes of Crossing State Lines

 Via LargeMarge

Over the past month, I probably watched about three hours of MSNBC and CNN.....mostly covering the Rittenhouse court case.  So it's an odd thing that they dragged out and verbally least twenty times....that Rittenhouse had crossed state lines.

So I pulled out the map eventually.....thinking he must have driven 300 miles by himself, and crossed the state line.

Well...NO, from where he was a 1-minute drive (1-mile) to the state line.  Kenosha, the city?  After you pass the state line, it's a three-minute drive (I-94) and roughly a 3-mile distance to the city limits.

Front Line Physician Suing Over Banned COVID Treatments: ‘Let Doctors be Doctors’

Critics have asserted that Marik has been prescribing Ivermectin, which he says is not true. “I never was allowed to prescribe Ivermectin in the first place, so how could it be about Ivermectin?” he posited in response to those who say Ivermectin does not work and should be banned. “This is about doctors being allowed to make decisions based on their conscience and medical training.”

Dr. Paul Marik, a doctor at the center of a Virginia lawsuit against a health care employer that banned the use of certain kinds of medicine to fight COVID-19, told The Daily Wire in an interview Tuesday that his case is fundamentally about the ability of medical physicians to care for their patients as they see fit based on their expertise. In other words, it’s about “letting doctors be doctors.”

Dr. Marik practices at Sentara Norfolk General, in Norfolk, VA. He is is a founding member of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care (FLCCC) Alliance. He is also the chief of pulmonary and critical care medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School.

 Notes from the Ninth Circle: Appalachia: Resistance to the ...

It all began in the remote coves of Jackson County in Western North Carolina for many; that lifestyle that involved a hard scrabble life, no nonsense theories and learning to survive the cold, hard facts of the world. Wars took the lives of many of the young men who were born here, and the families left behind learned to deal with the fact that likely there would never be any more money than they had at the time. 

Mornings began early, there was a cow to be milked, breakfast to be cooked, and children to be readied for school, many of them barefoot by choice as soon as the sun began to warm the cold earth. School lunch was not provided by the government and those who could not afford the 15 or 20 cents needed for lunch carried a bag to school. Inside that bag, many times a bag left over after using all the sugar it contained, would be a biscuit with a slice of tomato, or a slice of home cured ham from a smokehouse that held the hams from hogs butchered and preserved. Nothing was wasted, the fat was rendered and used for cooking, soap making, ointment or waterproofing boots. Most people kept two hogs to be butchered around Thanksgiving and a community effort was shared by each family in turn. The meat was carefully preserved and sausage was ground and fried, then canned in quart Mason jars; the grease poured over it so that it was kept separated in the can. That lard was off white, and necessary to use for frying the sausage again when it was ready to be eaten.
Chickens provided eggs, and when the old hen stopped laying eggs, she became Sunday dinner. It was the task of youngsters to find where the "Old setting hen" was protecting her eggs which would later hatch out small chickens. Springtime brought the sounds of Gee and Haw, the right and left signals to the horse pulling the plow which would till a large garden. 
Saturday was the time for preparations for Sunday morning. Shoes had to be shined, clothes ironed or pressed and Sunday best placed within easy reach. It was a time before TV, cell phones, computers and most homes had an old battery operated radio and "The Lone Ranger", "Wild Bill Hickock" and the Grand Ole Opry was the entertainment center. Families who were blessed with any voices would blend to sing the old hymns, usually accompanied by an old organ, a guitar, banjo or "Juice harp" harmonica. "The Old Rugged Cross", "Rock of Ages", "Take it to the Lord in Prayer" could be heard floating on the air around many homes.
Those days are gone, gone like the ways of our grandparents, but our roots are here, wherever we roam; the memories still remain with us and a longing for a simpler, calmer, saner world flits though the minds of many.

'Dukes of Hazzard' star John Schneider Double Downs on Cancel Culture: 'We don't belong in that country club'

  Two new films 'Poker Run' (With HK) and 'Christmas in Tune' with the Flag 
 … It had been attacked maybe 20 years ago. And then that attack went away. I guess the critics found another hobby. So no, it didn’t surprise me. But I tell you, my wife and I dirt track race. We are out among people from coast to coast all year round… And there are still children playing with General Lees in the dirt regardless of cancel culture trying to cancel it. And I think it’s because parents save their General Lees and pass them down to another generation.

John Schneider is hitting the road.

The actor, best known as Bo Duke from the hit series "Dukes of Hazzard," is keeping busy this holiday season with two new films premiering on the same day. For starters, he’s rolling the dice with "Poker Run," where he served as writer, director and leading man. It’s a sequel to fan-favorite "Stand On It," a "Smokey and the Bandit" tribute that was released in 2020. The 61-year-old is also starring in the new Lifetime film "Christmas in Tune" alongside Reba McEntire where they find themselves sharing the stage.

Evidently they have banned me again so search for the title. (You'd think they had something better to do. )
