Dear Patriots,

To start out a new week, we suggest several longer articles that go into depth on current events.

1- We often share the work of Selena Zito because she often hits the nail on the head.

In this piece she illustrates why more Democrats are moving to the Republican Party. And it has NOTHING to do with anything the RNC has done! Read it all.

It’s the culture, stupid

QUOTE: By the way, this is not about Republicans getting things perfect or even semiperfect or even partially perfect — this is about Democrats overreaching so wide and so far that they can’t see the forest for the trees.

What makes it worse for the Democrats is that they have done it in unison with our cultural curators for so long. When corporations and the media amplify this overreach in their advertisements, tweets, or social justice positions or opinions, they just push people even further away.

While Republicans would love to take credit for it (they deserve none), there was no master plan hatched by the Republican National Committee or former President Donald Trump. They did not create any of the backlash in the same way that Trump or the RNC did not create this conservative populist coalition that formed before he ever stepped on that escalator in 2015.

People will calculate that the midterm elections this year will be about a lot of things: Trump, racism, and not getting Build Back Better passed. They will be wrong — it is the culture, and had they just spent some time listening to people, they would have known.

2- In this installment of their weekly Sunday Six conversation, PF Whalen and Parker Beauregard of The Blue State Conservative discuss six critical battles of the culture war being waged right now. Here is just one of the six battles, go to the link for the whole list.

Six Key Battles Currently Being Fought In The Culture War

QUOTE: #6: Resistance is building against the left’s sexual and gender values being taught in schools.

Leftists believe that they, not parents, should be the ones instilling values in our nation’s children. If a father explains to his daughter that girls are girls and boys are boys, that’s problematic and must be stopped. If a mother teaches her son that God wants him to wait until marriage to have sex, and that marriage should be to a woman, such talk is homophobic and bigoted in their view. But this is a losing battle for the left, and a winning one for the right. Conservatives need to stick to their values and take issues like this head-on. It’s the right thing to do, and it will help them at the ballot box.

3- As we move toward the midterm elections, with the Democrats sinking to record lows on all issues in the polls, watch for this strategy to develop.

Biden “Strategy”: Blame Putin For Everything and Portray Critics as Treasonous

QUOTE: Especially now that Biden’s approval ratings keep dropping, gas prices keep rising, inflation eating at American paychecks, as Russia’s murderous dictator Vladimir Putin invades Ukraine and kills its people.

So, what can the Biden White House do? Looks like they’ve already begun this four-step program:

    • Blame Putin for everything that’s gone wrong since Day One of the Biden administration, including inflation from wild spending sprees, and high gas prices at the pump.
    • Double down on the already-approved Biden White House theme that critics are nothing but traitorous pro-Russian stooges.
    • Spin away the reality of Biden as a weak, doddering old man by reminding Americans of all those times he’s threatened to take Putin, former President Donald Trump or Joe’s old nemesis, “Corn Pop”  behind the barn for an old fashioned “whuppin’.”
    • Entertain a more aggressive interventionist foreign policy in Ukraine and elsewhere.

You can see this taking shape as Democrats rally around the president, hoping to shore him up with the November mid-term elections approaching.

4- The world now admits Covid-CCP is over, the leftist in the media are working up other news to use to scare you.

The Collapsing Covid Narrative is Being Replaced with Putin and Ukraine
QUOTE:  There were scientists who advocated herd immunity through natural infection at the outset. Those voices, however, were ridiculed, censored, discredited, fired and cancelled.

Instead, one after another, governments across the world seized the false narrative and proceeded to impose a cascade of disastrous measures that inflicted unprecedented damage on the human race.

These policies were a gargantuan mistake that cost untold trillions of dollars and countless lives.

Now that the false narrative is collapsing, those responsible for this debacle should be asked to explain themselves. These people, however, are very cunning and they are already in the process of skilfully diverting the public’s attention to another place with a new narrative.

Today they are all talking about Vladimir Putin as the greatest threat to mankind. They hope to inflame people’s passions so they will not notice that Covid has somehow gone away even though a short while ago we were allegedly all in danger of dying from it.

5- This is an in-depth look at the lies about early treatment options and how the left kept these cures from sick people.

The Extraordinary Story of How Governments Suppressed Effective COVID Treatments and Targeted Physicians Who Prescribed Them

QUOTE: But here’s the kicker: The authorities knew all about chloroquine and other treatments for COVID-19 before there was a COVID-19 — because they had figured it out for the 2003 SARS epidemic and the 2012 MERS epidemic, both caused by related coronaviruses. But they hushed it up.

Five Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) U.S. scientists (employed by the U.S. government), along with three Canadian government scientists, in 2005 published a paper showing chloroquine was an effective drug against SARS coronaviruses. European scientists showed the same thing in 2004.

6- Socialism fails every time it is tried. Sadly, it is being tried on the United State at a rapid pace by the Biden regime. There is hope.

Robert Genetski-The Epoch Times

Progressive, Socialist Policies Are Destructive, Have Never Brought Prosperity

QUOTE: After years of data accumulation and analysis, top U.S. economist Robert Genetski found that progressive or socialist policies are destructive and can only bring America away from prosperity. He also said the Biden administration’s economic policies are “absolutely” progressive or socialist.

“The classical free-market policies were far more effective and powerful than I ever imagined, and the movement away from them, in terms of progressive economics and socialism, were far more destructive,” Genetski told The Epoch Times. “I would never have guessed that for 52 years we would have no increase in the real take-home pay of the average worker.”

QUOTE: “I’m hopeful that people will become very frustrated. They don’t necessarily have to understand the economics, but they see what it does to their incomes, and they don’t care about the economics. They just want to change and hope that something will get better.”

“For example, we have elections coming up in November. If there is a huge switch to getting rid of people who believe that the government should control more, and we put other people in, that will slow the trend and maybe stop it for the next two years until the presidential election,” said Genetski.

“It’s a process that goes on. No one knows how it’s going to turn out. But the history suggests that when you move too dramatically in one direction, and you see the damage, and people realize that, there is an automatic tendency through elections to shift policies back in the other direction.”

Pray for the people of Ukraine. Pray their leaders remain strong. Pray that Putin deescalates. Pray for leaders to emerge in America to take the country in a better direction.
