The Impact of Toxic Propaganda on America’s Children

Whether immigrant or home-grown, doesn’t living in America warrant some special gratitude? Aren’t you lucky as hell?

I can’t help but wonder and worry how today’s American culture–an environment impacted by the COVID-19 shutdowns, virtual social isolation, national disrespect, and victim identity politics–will influence today’s children.

An America with “childhood cheer” in lockdown:

America didn’t cause the pandemic, and indeed, it isn’t the only country to suffer its devastatingly destructive social and economic consequences.

Nevertheless, “the virus” has infected the American experience for everyone.

Most particularly, try to imagine yourself as a small child first experiencing a new world of masked, unsmiling strangers where nervously suspicious people everywhere distance from one another outside six-foot arcs.

While recently driving past an elementary school, the scene reminded me of televised views of maximum-security prison inmates being briefly allowed time outside in an exercise yard.

The little jailbirds were all masked and socially distanced in line amidst lots of tantalizingly colorful slides and other vacant playground equipment.

It struck me that these were the lucky ones…children who were actually allowed to be with other masked socially distanced friends in a nurturing school environment. But why weren’t they running around like ordinary masked bandits and exercising joyful energy on such a warm, bright day?

After all, Covid transmission and serious health consequences among children are recognized to be very rare.

Who were they supposed to be afraid of or protecting?

It seemed more to reflect a projection of adult paranoia where instead of everyone being experienced as a potential new friend, we are becoming more and more distrustful of contact with everyone.

An America of virtual relationships:

And remember a bit later when pre-Covid lockdown extracurricular school and community activities such as athletic training, sporting events, music and art clubs, dances, and theater performances were all important aspects of our social experiences?

That was when we were taught how to explore important lessons about how to cooperate and interact with others in various situations.

We learned how to navigate and persevere through personal challenges. We developed special and shared interests and abilities. We uncovered unique aspects of our own identity.

Through direct physical proximity, we also learned the necessary but difficult and complex lessons about forming genuine friendships.

We built mutual trust with our peers.

We experienced disappointments and betrayals.

We learned how to adapt, expand, and become more valuable and rewarded in society as productive social beings from these experiences.

When today’s children and adolescents grow up, will they see themselves as a generation whose lives will forever fall in the dark shadow of a global pandemic?

An America at war with its heritage:

Will that new generation recognize and respect the marvelous American principles and virtues my generation and yours inherited from very wise, brave, and generous generations that preceded ours?

Conversely, will many instead view America through the distorted lens of the 1619 Project as a systemically and eternally racist country forever rooted in plantation slavery of the pre-Civil War South?

This abhorrent fiction is now being introduced into schools with the express purpose to reframe the country’s history by replacing 1776 as America’s founding date and substituting 1619.

When students and families visit our national Capitol to witness how our government works, will the area remain enclosed, as now, by a seven-foot-high security barrier topped with barbed Cortina wire? How many of our sacred national monuments and heroic memorials will remain standing and unmolested?

Will the next elected leaders of our country be under non-stop impeachment investigations theatrically staged as rancorous media events by the losing side?

An America of identity victimhood:

Remember when we were taught to believe in an American dream that almost anything is possible for all rugged and determined individuals who are prepared to seize upon equal opportunities to achieve high goals through determination and hard work?

Do you recall when America celebrated an enriching cultural heritage of “melting pot” multicultural social, religious, ethnic, and racial diversity?

Both of those core ideals are now under dastardly malign assaults by an ideological counterculture of wokeness that divisively views America’s populace as “privileged” and “victim” classes characterized according to stereotypic mushed-together skin color, alphabet, and acronym group identities under the contradictory guise of promoting “equity and inclusion.”

Nearly every major U.S. company now has a diversity and inclusion department offering lessons in unconscious bias, workshops on “white privilege,” and “struggle sessions” on systemic racism to their employees.

Scariest of all, more and more school districts across the country are all in on creating neo-Marxist “critical race theory” programs to instruct K-12 administrators and teachers how to indoctrinate impressionable young minds not only that they live in a racist society, but that they and their parents (if white) carry that historical stain.

Imagine the amount of senselessly wasted classroom time squandered on such egregiously toxic propaganda that might otherwise be devoted to learning valuable information and skills that prepare students for constructive and rewarding lives in this great nation…or anywhere they choose.

It’s our job to open their youthful eyes to these unparalleled American opportunities, and by example, to reopen our own mind’s eyes to remember the limitless joys and opportunities we so very fortunately inherited and grew up with.

America’s Wind Turbines Increase Energy Cost and Endanger Us All

America’s Wind Turbines Increase Energy Cost and Endanger Us All

Wind is even more intermittent than you could imagine, abruptly varying its energy output. Every turbine has a range of wind speeds, usually between 30 miles per hour (mph) and 55 mph, in which it will produce its maximum rated electric output. At lower speeds, the production falls off considerably. At wind speeds above the maximum rate for a turbine, the blades…

America has an Economic Virus

America has an Economic Virus

Whenever the government says, it wants to “help,” watch out! The problem is going to get worse. Why? Because government is meddling where it doesn’t belong. Because government is meddling where it has no expertise. Because government meddling imposes top-down “solutions” that are not based on free-market supply and demand. It always backfires…

The Global Western Cabal End Game

The Global Western Cabal End Game

The pandemic is becoming permanent, even as it ends. Why? Because we did not pass the cabal’s election laws. Had we allowed the cabal to make fraud the norm in every state, then they would have been able to throw future elections even without a pandemic. We did not pass those laws so now the pandemic is permanent…

The Light at the End of the Tunnel

At the moment, Socialists hold the reins of power in their hands, and in doing so, they have weaponized the DoJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, and Homeland Security significantly enough to change the Patriot Acts definition of who constitutes domestic terrorists. For the Democrat Party, control is essential, and seeing the light of an oncoming train, they are desperately attempting to rearrange…

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

This case is not about whether vaccines are effective, useful, or a good idea. It’s about whether this federal executive branch agency has the power to force millions of people working for or with a Medicare or Medicaid provider to undergo an invasive, irrevocable, forced medical treatment, a COVID shot. It’s a bureaucratic power move that is unprecedented…

A Scientific Reawakening at the Lincoln Memorial

A Scientific Reawakening at the Lincoln Memorial

The “Defeat the Mandates” march called for an end to vaccine mandates nationwide. Dr. Peter McCullough applauded the doctors and health care workers who stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and those throughout the nation that fought the good fight against medical tyranny. “We never had a full-throated endorsement from our government agencies, the CDC, the NIH, and the FDA, nor the White House task force,”…

Biden’s Forthcoming Failure in the Middle East Will Have Worldwide Implications

Since Biden has come to office, almost every nation that used to depend upon America for their security is realizing how wrong they have been and are now either arming themselves with more weapons or re-aligning with China and Russia, even if temporary. What is brewing in the Middle East – as I have been repeatedly warning – is a Nuclear confrontation because…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

Can Dr. McCullough, talk more about pericarditis? Everyone mentions myocarditis, but there are never any statistics mentioned for pericarditis. In Australia, there are twice as many reports of pericarditis than myocarditis from vaccines. What are the dangers of having Covid naturally and then getting vaccinated? Wasn’t there a thought that you should not get vaccinated for 90 days after having Covid?

Hunter Biden, Paul Pelosi Jr. and A Swamp of Thieves

Hunter Biden was earning an $80,000 monthly salary from the Ukrainian energy company and why he concocted a billion-dollar deal with a Chinese investment firm, 10% of all earnings of which were destined for the coffers of the family’s mob boss, Joe Biden himself. But why stop with the Biden’s? Speaker Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr. has been linked to at least five businesses under investigation for alleged fraud…

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

PM Boris Johnson announced that his country is to move into mitigated COVID restrictions, dropping the legal requirement for face masks and COVID passports. Meanwhile, the European Union drug regulators warned frequent COVID boosters could adversely affect the immune system.

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

A close examination of the newly unredacted emails reveals that none of the usual justifications for redactions, such as private information about people or threats to sources and methods, apply. All appear to have been made solely to shield Fauci and the NIH from scrutiny over its cover-up of the virus’ origins. Also involved in the obfuscation effort were Fauci’s boss, recently retired NIH Dir Dr. Francis Collins…

This Week In COVID: Hospitals, Please Stop Killing Our Loved Ones!

Patients never have the same doctor or nurse 2 days in a row. Family advocates STILL aren’t allowed to be bedside. The ‘Science’ isn’t being followed, but the ‘Money’ is being chased after. Doctors aren’t THINKING, they are OBEYING. One-size-fits-all does NOT work for high-risk patients or any patients. If you agree this is wrong, help us fight for what’s right…

The Questionable Merger of a Global Reverse Biotechnology Corporation

The former corporation of Senomyx, once headquartered out of La Jolla, California, allegedly used aborted Fetal cells in its food and beverage products while in collaboration with some of the world’s largest leading food and beverage corporations.
