(Natural News) The radical Left — which now controls tech giants like Google and Facebook — can’t win any debate (or elections) based on facts or logic, so they resort to brazen censorship to silence all opposing views in the hopes of dominating the culture by cheating. “These activists want the playing field to be tilted in favor of their ‘politically correct’ worldview so that democratic outcomes like the 2016 presidential election can never happen again,” warns Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), a member of Congress. “Censorship like this undermines public discourse and trust in our institutions — and it is likely to get worse before it gets better.”
In fact, it’s now clear that Google, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter have all decided to ban all the speech they oppose in the hopes of achieving a kind of “cultural coup” that silences any views they oppose, including biological science facts such as the fact that there are only two genders, not an infinite number of imaginary “gender fluid” delusions. This insidious censorship stunt is being pursued with the desire to banish all conservatives from the internet, but unless it is reversed, my analysis concludes it may actually lead to kinetic warfare that’s likely to involve tech giants’ headquarters being necessarily targeted by pro-human rights forces attempting to halt tyranny and restore freedom of speech, a basic human right that’s now being systematically violated by Google.

I can’t believe that it took me 5 years to check out the ice skating resources in Springfield MO. It turns out that most of my assumptions about the place were unfounded. They have great public skate hours. Multiple sessions per day, 7 days a week, this time of year, and they sell a seasons pass at a very reasonable price. The pass is $120 a year, and $100 if you are a senior or a student. For comparisons sake, the Germain Ice Arena in Estero FL, charges $400 a month for unlimited ice time, and then only for what they “free style” skating, which is geared more towards competitive figure skaters rather than the general public.
They also have 8 week hockey and figure skating classes that are held year round if you don’t know how to skate. This runs about $100 per 8 week session.The rental skates look half decent also.
The proshop was closed and I could not get my skates sharpened when I was there. You might want to call before you go, they are located at: 635 E. Trafficway St., Springfield, MO
Phone (417) 866-7444
As you can see, I had the entire rink to myself the other day. Which is a fantastic thing if you want to do any serious skating.
My only gripe about the facility is that this is not a free market enterprise but instead consists of the socialist government of Springfield, stealing money at gun point from the citizens, to build a multi million dollar facility, that when all is said and done, is not something that the citizens of Springfield seem to want to utilize. That being said, I had no part in the theft, and plan on utilizing this facility over the coming years. If I can afford it I am planning on picking up hockey equipment and getting back to playing after a 45 year hiatus. Hope to see you there!
One can not escape it. The mindless drivel of group think: “Support the troops”. Never mind that they are the standing army that the founders warned us about. That the deep state has been openly investigating whether or not this standing army would be willing to criminally take arms from American Citizens.
What are we supposed to support? Perhaps the gross violation of the Constitution (treason) by fighting in wars when Congress has not declared war?
Perhaps the use of depleted uranium in 6 countries? The use of which is clearly a war crime? To cause birth defects in children for at hundreds of years into the future.
Or perhaps the fact that out military is reportedly currently active in over 200 countries. Again Congress has not declared war, so we have 200 wars of aggression. Which according to treaty is again a “war crime”.
So I guess the group think is really “Support war crimes” ” Support the trampling of the US Constitution”.
Sorry, but I don’t do group think, I gave that up after high school.
How about you? Do you support criminality just because it’s politically correct to do so? If you do, you support the inhuman actions of a criminal globalist government…
What we should be doing is supporting and bringing back the militia, and at the same time getting rid of the standing army (that is not authorized by the Constitution) and also getting rid of the standing army in blue, that we call “police”. Our standing army should not exist in times of peace. The thugs in blue should never exist…. The militia was supposed to keep the peace and defend our rights. Not thugs that are controlled by the globalists.
Every society has rites of passage. If you want to begin to understand any society, study its rites of passage.
In the Christian West, there are three acknowledged rites of passage: baptism, marriage, and funeral. Obviously, a funeral is a rite of passage for the survivors. Nobody wears street clothes — other than a mortician’s street clothes — when he is invited by somebody else to one of these rites of passage.
Every society has additional rites of passage. There is usually a rite of passage associated with advancing from childhood to adulthood. I love the writings of Jean Shepherd, who wrote A Christmas Story. I think his greatest story was “Wanda Hickey’s Night of Golden Memories.” There, he established the connection between a tribal rite of passage for young men with the senior prom.
School Rites vs. Parental Rights
One of the rites of passage that apparently I am the only one who has recognized is what I call the dorm key ritual. When a parent takes his child to register in a college dorm, the person at the front desk hands the room key to the freshman student, not to the parent. The parent is paying for the room, but the student gets the key. Whether parents recognize this or not, this is one of the major rites of passage for about a third of the American population…… Read More
(Natural News) As we’re all well aware by now, YouTube is no longer a platform for freedom of expression. Over the last two years, YouTube has systematically censored, demonetized and banned video channels that cover cannabis, liberty, natural health and firearms self-defense. This has turned YouTube in an echo chamber of stupiditydriven by corporate narratives and globalist disinfo.
REAL.video launches in July, providing a free speech alternative to YouTube. Upon launch, it will almost instantly become the new hub for the most powerful and well-informed videos on the ‘net, covering everything from daily independent news to censored science and medicine.
As I explain in my video below, there are five powerful reasons to ditch YouTube and switch to REAL.video. These reasons include: ….. Read More
MFP Commentary: “Land of the Free” my arse! Where the hell are the so called “troops” when you have “domestic enemies”? (MIA as usual) It seems as if Israel runs the legislatures in this country.
These state governments are clearly the enemies of your right to free speech and association! Why don’t we treat them as the enemies of freedom that they clearly are?
I seriously think we need stronger treason laws where legislators that advocate the tramping of our rights should face the possibility of being hung from the neck until dead. As it stands these criminals commit these crimes against us with no penalties at all! Gun grabbing politicians should be the first to be charged IMHO.
“The first time it was reported that our friends were being butchered there was a cry of horror. Then a hundred were butchered. But when a thousand were butchered and there was no end to the butchery, a blanket of silence spread. When evil-doing comes like falling rain, nobody calls out ‘stop!’ When crimes begin to pile up they become invisible. When sufferings become unendurable the cries are no longer heard. The cries, too, fall like rain in summer.” ― Bertolt Brecht, Selected Poems
There are days I wake up, and I’m not sure what country I live in anymore.
There are days I wake up and want to go right back to sleep in the hopes that this surreal landscape of government-sanctioned injustice, corruption and brutality is just a really bad dream.
There are days I am so battered by the never-ending wave of bad news that I have little outrage left in me: I am numb.
And then I get hold of myself, shake myself out of the doldrums, and remind myself that it’s not yet time to give up: America needs our outrage and our alertness and our tenacity and our fierce determination to remain a free people in a land where justice matters.
ACT. It doesn’t matter what your politics are or where you stand on immigration issues. There are some lines that should never be crossed—some government actions that should never be tolerated or justified—no matter what the end goal might be, and this is one of them. Demand that Congress stop playing politics and endangering children’s lives.
ACT: Call the Justice Department (202-353-1555) and read them the Fourth Amendment: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
When you find out that Amazon is selling police real time facial recognition software that can scan hundreds of thousands of faces, identify them, track them, and then report them to police, don’t just shrug helplessly.
ACT: Harness the power of your wallet to urge Amazon to favor freedom principles over profit motives. It’s only a matter of time before these programs are used widely here in the U.S. They are already being used and abused abroad. For instance, Amazon’s Rekognition software was used by broadcasters to identify attendees at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Chinese police have used similar facial recognition tools to scan crowds at rock concerts, malls and gas stations in order to catch alleged lawbreakers. Just recently, Chinese police used the technology to capture a suspect who had been living under a pseudonym after he failed to pay for $17,000 worth of potatoes. Chinese schools are even employing the facial recognition cameras in classrooms to alert teachers to students who aren’t paying attention.
ACT: Do your own research. You’ll soon discover that because of the corruption that surrounds this abusive program, countless innocent Americans have been robbed blind by government agents out to get rich at their expense. Billions of dollars have been taken without probable cause. Anthonia Nwaorie, a Texas nurse who had saved up $41,377 to start a medical clinic for women and children in Nigeria, had her life savings seized by Customs Agents who refused to return the money unless she agreed to pay their “expenses.” Six months later, even though Nwaorie was never charged with a crime, she’s still waiting to get her money back…… Read More
“The tank, the B-52, the fighter-bomber, the state-controlled police and the military are the weapons of dictatorship. The rifle is the weapon of democracy… If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government—and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws.”
“Fantastic doctrines (like Christianity or Islam or Marxism) require unanimity of belief. One dissenter casts doubt on the creed of millions. Thus the fear and the hate; thus the torture chamber, the iron stake, the gallows, the labor camp, the psychiatric ward.”
“A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.”
“Anarchism is founded on the observation that since few men are wise enough to rule themselves, even fewer are wise enough to rule others.”
I am opposed to the government death penalty; I am also pro-life which makes me blessedly consistent. I don’t trust the government to be able to have the responsibility to mete out the severest penalty and to do it either professionally or with no ill intent. In the smaller sense, the evidence is massive of the queue of innocents who have been shot, hanged and poisoned for crimes they did not commit. In the larger sense, government puts us all on death row and it is just a matter of time before the cops kill you in your home or vehicle or we suffer a massive die-off in America from an EMP burst that takes us from zero to 1850 in one second.
I use this preamble to frame my severe skepticism of the state doing the right thing…ever….. Read More
We labor today under the weight of countless tyrannies, large and small, carried out in the name of the national good by an elite class of government officials who are largely insulated from the ill effects of their actions.
We, the middling classes, are not so fortunate.
We find ourselves badgered, bullied and browbeaten into bearing the brunt of their arrogance, paying the price for their greed, suffering the backlash for their militarism, agonizing as a result of their inaction, feigning ignorance about their backroom dealings, overlooking their incompetence, turning a blind eye to their misdeeds, cowering from their heavy-handed tactics, and blindly hoping for change that never comes….
