    No matter how hard California tries to be on the cutting edge of electric vehicle use or on getting into green energy, they keep tripping over their own two feet. Their refusal to see just how unprepared the US is to go green and how it cannot be done all at once is a tremendous shortcoming for the state.

    In response to this shortcoming, the state has had to issue warnings of potential rolling blackouts and informed its residents of the tremendous strain on their aging electrical grid.

    As first reported by Fox News affiliate KMPH, the state has had to resort to its emergency gas generators as a backup for the grid. These four generators have never been needed in the state’s history but are not being used after the order was passed down from the California Independent System Operator to the Department of Water Resources of Roseville and Yuba City.

    These generators were installed in 2021 for emergency use and, through the burning of natural gas, can generate 120 megawatts for the grid. This means power for 120,000 homes in a state with over 39.2 million homes.

    Given the drop in the bucket that this represents, it underlines just how dire the situation has become. With the current heatwave that California and much of the western side of the US have been under, it is only making things far worse for the state’s grid.

    Now, this kind of news is not unexpected.

    Since August 2020, when the state first started rolling blackouts through 800,000 homes and businesses, these outages lasted from 15 minutes to hours at a time. Governor Gavin Newsom accepted blame at the time and claimed that they had not taken the steps necessary to be prepared.

    Two years later and with a 2045 timetable to become reliant solely on renewable energy, Gov. Newsom has proven that he has learned absolutely nothing about electricity.

    Given the mass exodus that California has undergone in the last few years, the fact that the electrical grid is this strained is even more shocking than it was in 2020. Elliot Manzer, the ISO’s president and CEO, issued a statement on September 5th about the situation.

    “We need a reduction in energy use that is two or three times greater than what we’ve seen so far as this historic heat wave continues to intensify.” Manzer went on to suggest that the state needed “energy deficits” of 10% or more or 3 million households or more could find themselves going offline.

    The last week of August also saw ISO warning Californians and suggesting they raise their thermostat to 78* or higher. They suggested running large appliances and pre-cooling the house when the sun was out to take advantage of the solar power.

    Before Labor Day weekend, they changed this stance. Instead, they asked customers to avoid large appliances, turn off unnecessary lights, and resist charging their electric cars.

    Given the large push to change over to green energy-driven solar-powered cars and to convert their homes to solar power, California is already seeing the problems with electric car reliance. Their grid simply cannot keep up with the demands, and given their makeup, it’s not surprising in the least. The infrastructure itself is old and not as efficient as it could be.

    However, it’s the energy sourcing that causes most of the problems.

    Currently, California gets 40.5% of its electricity from solar power. 32% comes from natural gas (much to the disappointment of the green lovers), 11.5% from wind, 11.1% from hydroelectric, 10.5% from nuclear, and 0.1% from coal.

    Suffice it to say, California’s electrical needs are being met through incredibly diverse sources. This might be satisfying the green energy crowds, but this kind of reliance without proper backups is a dangerous idea and one that they are already discovering can become catastrophic at a moment’s notice.

    The Navy’s Sheep Has Grabbed the Attention of PETA

      You don’t really expect to hear about the Navy having sheep. And even if you’re aware of the sheep being kept by this branch of the military, you assume they’re doing everything right. Apparently not, and PETA is getting very upset about it all.

      So, in case you didn’t know, the military has been using sheep for research for quite some time. Some of the sheep will graze on the bases. But in many instances, the sheep are used in testing procedures. More specifically, the Navy is looking to find out more about decompression sickness and how to combat it.

      Referred to as “the bends,” decompression sickness happens when the body ascends from pressurized environments – such as being a diver and moving from the deep ocean to shallow waters. It can cause bubbles to form in the muscles, organs, and blood.

      Experiments are taking place in San Diego. The Navy will place sheep in high-pressure chambers as a way of replicating what naval divers experience.

      PETA, however, has stepped in.

      The VP of international laboratory methods, Shalin Gala, spoke with Military Times to explain “The U.S. Navy is literally squeezing the life out of sheep and other animals in crude and painful decompression tests that only serve to leave the U.S. further behind the rest of the world.”

      They have gone as far as calling on Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to stop the “archaic tests” that waste money and risk animal lives.
      Many of the sheep involved in the experiments end up with chest pain, paralysis, seizures, vomiting, crippling joint pain, and more.
      What the Navy is doing isn’t anything new. In fact, the military in the UK and France have performed similar research studies. The only difference is that the UK and France stopped testing on animals over a decade ago.

      We have the technology that would allow the Navy to get even more data if they were to switch over to androids, AI, and other tech. For example, SpaceX isn’t sending monkeys into space like what NASA did four decades ago. Instead, they’re using highly technical robots that have sensors to collect data about the various pressure points and such.

      What’s being used for space could easily be used by the military. It’s about the money.

      Still, the Navy’s surgeon general, Rear Adm. BL Gillingham, wants to argue. “While the Navy pursues every effort to engage in research that does not require animal use, there are still critical areas of study, which remain impossible without the use of animal model research.”
      It comes down to the question of what is and isn’t humane. Are the sheep being treated properly? PETA would say no.

      And this isn’t the first time PETA and other animal groups have targeted the military. In 2010, a petition was filed that actually led to a criminal investigation. Why? More decompression sickness experiments were being performed.

      The UK and France have switched over to humans, citing that they can obtain more accurate and informed results.
      While PETA often blows some things out of proportion, it seems they may have a point on this one.

      BREAKING: The @USNavy is squeezing the life out of sheep & other animals in gruesome decompression sickness experiments!

      The navies of U.K. & France stopped torturing animals in these tests over 10 YEARS ago—the #USNavy must stop these experiments NOW! https://t.co/2Om1tDGFcy

      If we’re supposed to be the best military in the world, shouldn’t we be capable of providing better (and more humane) testing to improve outcomes?

      Turns Out Joe Rogan Was Right About Ivermectin and COVID

        After claiming Ivermectin was the cure the government didn’t want to discuss when COVID was just kicking off, Joe Rogan was laughed at. When he caught COVID himself and received it as a part of a treatment course with Z-packs and vitamin drips for three days, people thought he was full of it and making things up.

        Turns out, this was more than an internet rumor but actually had solid skin in the game.

        The study was conducted by Flávio A. Cadegiani, MD, MSc, Ph.D. Cadegiani is a board-certified endocrinologist with a master’s degree and a doctorate in clinical endocrinology. The study has been peer-reviewed and published online by the medical journal Cureus. With a large sampling, the data is amazing.

        Conducted in the city of Itajai in Brazil, the https://www.cureus.com/articles/111851-regular-use-of-ivermectin-as-prophylaxis-for-covid-19-led-up-to-a-92-reduction-in-covid-19-mortality-rate-in-a-dose-response-manner-results-of-a-prospective-observational-study-of-a-strictly-controlled-population-of-88012-subjects?email_share=true&expedited_modal=true had 88,012 patients in the study. During the study, they saw a 92% reduction in the risk of death from COVID patients who received Ivermectin as a part of their treatment or as a preventative. They also received an 84% decrease when compared to those who were using the substance irregularly.

        “The hospitalization rate was reduced by 100% in regular users compared to both irregular users and non-users,” the study stated.

        The regular users for this study were already at an increased risk of death, as they were older and had a high prevalence of type-2 diabetes, as well as hypertension than those who were irregularly and non-users. For those irregular users, they saw a 37% reduction in their risk compared to non-users. In this study, a regular user was someone who took more than 30 tablets over a five-month period.

        Going on to explain, the study stated that dosage was determined by body weight, however, “most of the population used between two and three tablets daily for two days, every 15 days…Non-use of ivermectin was associated with a 12.5-fold increase in mortality rate and a seven-fold increased risk of dying from COVID-19 compared to the regular use of ivermectin. This dose-response efficacy reinforces the prophylactic effects of ivermectin against COVID-19.”

        These kinds of results are simply extraordinary. As Cadegiani explains, the “dose-response effect” is fully explained and proven here. Writing on Twitter, he backed up his thesis with proof and showcased it for the world to see. “An observational study with the size and level of analysis as ours is hardly achieved and infeasible to be conducted as a randomized clinical trial. Conclusions are hard to be refuted. Data is data, regardless of your beliefs.”

        Naturally, the left will be lining up to make some semblance of claims against this study. It doesn’t fit their vaccination-first belief system, and it doesn’t do anything to shove more big pharma down the people’s throats. Instead, it does what so many of the right and the hippies both did; it proves the power of alternative medicine and backs up the concept of people taking responsibility for their health.

        The people in this study were not the best candidates for this kind of study. If anything, they were some of the least likely to survive a bout with COVID. By proving Ivermectin was able to keep them alive and allow them to recover, the proof is now irrefutable as to how it could help someone who is already healthy like Joe Rogan in recovery.

        With this kind of proof, the funniest thing is that the same people who were proclaiming that people needed to trust the jab but refused to consider Ivermectin as a viable response are now being proven completely wrong. The jab might have been considered a small change in existing science, but that small change was a joke compared to this old science.

          Haven’t you heard? Joe Biden is making a comeback. At least, that’s what the liberal media has been boasting about recently. This is the newest way to get the president’s approval rating up.

          It’s working, sort of. His approval rating has gone up a few points. Unfortunately, that still puts him in the low 40s, which means that he’s not doing the bang-up job that most Democratic voters thought he was capable of when they voted for him.

          And most of it is based on lies. You see, it’s all based on the “string of wins” that CNN has been boasting about. You know, things like the Inflation Reduction Act, the forgiveness of some student loan debt, and lower gas prices. But are those really wins?

          The Inflation Reduction Act has yet to actually reduce inflation. And if it sends the country crashing into a recession, that’s not a great move, either. And even many Democrats, including Bernie Sanders, believe that the legislation may actually ADD to the problem.

          The student loan forgiveness of $10,000, along with extending the repayment of loans until the end of December, is also a move that many question as being a good one. It could cause many people to face tax burdens when they file their state income taxes in April because of the “income” they received. And, it’s an extremely lopsided policy since only those who make less than $125,000 will see any of their student loan debt being forgiven by the president.

          As for the gas prices, is Biden seriously trying to take credit for this? He’s the reason they skyrocketed to over $4 in the first place. He swore up and down that he wasn’t responsible for the high gas prices. Yet, somehow, he wants the credit when they drop? Sorry, Joe. It doesn’t work that way.

          CNN may want to boast about Biden’s string of wins, but this is just a way to make Americans believe that there are actually improvements.
          The reality is that Americans are still disappointed by Joe Biden’s performance in office. A YouGov poll even showed that among Independents, his approval rating is only sitting at 26.7%.

          He may have the vote of Democrats, but there are more and more Independents. People don’t want to claim that they are with either party. Instead, they look at the issues and choose the right candidate based on those. And it’s not a bad idea considering the mess that we’re in now is because of the Democratic chant of “vote blue no matter who.”

          YouGov: Biden Approval Rating Among Independents Hits New Low

          Joe Biden: Independents
          Approve 26.7%
          Disapprove 64.1%

          When 64.1% of Independents are saying that they disapprove of the job that Joe Biden is doing, it’s hard to believe the liberal media. President Biden is most certainly NOT making a comeback.

          Oh, and it might actually be worse since the YouGov poll happened before the disgusting speech Joe Biden gave last Thursday. Although he swears that he’s about unity, his speech was perhaps the most divisive ever given by a sitting president. Apparently, making America great again is a bad thing. He commented that “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundation of our Republic.”

          Yeah, talk like that isn’t about to help Biden. Especially when he goes on to say that “MAGA Republicans…embrace anger. They thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth, but in the shadow of lies.”

          Wow. Yeah, if there’s anyone lying, it’s Biden – and it’s to himself. Meanwhile, the angriest mobs are those of the Democrats. Yet, we’re supposed to ignore all of that and believe every word out of the bumbling idiot’s mouth since he sits in the Oval Office.

          If the liberal media wants to believe that Biden is making a comeback, fine. We’ll wait for the light of truth to show that his numbers haven’t even seen their worst yet.

            CNN can no longer try to put a spin on sky-rocketing inflation to make this Democratic administration look even somewhat productive.

            Rahel Solomon, a CNN Business correspondent put it bluntly this week on the network saying that American life is “being shaped by the really high inflation,” which topped 8.6% in May.

            “Well, I think for a lot of Americans, their reality is being shaped by the really high inflation. We know, under the hood of that number, it’s really high energy prices, really high food prices. The costs of new and used cars have gone up, pretty much everything broad-based has gone up. The cost of shelter has gone up, which has some economists really concerned,” Solomon stated with candor.

            She went on to say if you are an American, it is really hard to “feel great” about the economy. And she used a personal story to highlight just how difficult things have become.

            Solomon said that even though her world is talking to economists, traders and analysts, she still is shocked when she goes to the grocery store and looks at the prices. She said it makes her understand how bad it is for others around the country.

            On CNN, Solomon was talking with anchor Ana Cabrera. They discussed a new Monmouth University Poll that revealed almost 9 in 10 American adults believe that the United States is moving in the “wrong directions.”

            CNN Rahel Solomon: “Pretty much everything broad-based has gone up [in price]”
            Energy prices up
            Food prices up
            New & used car prices up
            Shelter prices up pic.twitter.com/sHzDfpHBmg

            — RNC Research (@RNCResearch) July 6, 2022

            The poll also found that inflation and record-high gas prices are what concern Americans the most right now. This should be alarming to the Democratic Party because they control both the White House and Congress.

            When you put together poll numbers like these with Biden’s low approval rating, it’s not hard to project what the midterm election results will be in November of this year.

            We do not have inflation figures for June yet from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. But most experts agree that we will probably see the consumer price index show another inflation increase.

            Inflation continued to significantly rise in Europe last month.

            If we see an increase, the Federal Reserve will likely keep raising interest rates and some economists think this will lead America into another recession.

            With even CNN painting a bleak picture of the economy, the Biden Administration continues to push a trillion-dollar tax-and-spend plan. They spend much of 2021 dismissing the rising inflation as something transitory. And now they are claiming that spending more money and raising taxes will help reduce inflation.

            Here is just one of Biden’s risky plans they may enact socialist price controls on the healthcare system. This may in the beginning reduce the cost of prescription drugs.

            But even Biden’s advisors know that price controls have never worked. They reduce the price at first, but then it leads to shortages, and the customers are harmed.

            Price controls were tried in the 1970s with gasoline. But it led to long lines and shortages at gas stations.

            Rather than helping reduce costs, price controls will harm the economy and threaten high-paying manufacturing jobs. And they will lead to fewer new medicines.

            There was a study done by the Council of Economic Advisors that estimated that price controls could lead to 100 fewer lifesaving medicines over the next ten years. This could reduce the life expectancy of the average American by four months.

            We lived through the gas shortages in the ’70s and had to wait in long lines, but at least we were not sick while doing it.

            Even CNN can’t spin this reality.

              Every now and then, you hear a chilling tale that tells you just how far the nation has slipped. Criminal activity isn’t prosecuted nearly as frequently as it should. It allows other criminals to create unthinkable scams with the assumption that they’ll get away with it.

              Crime deterrents are clearly not a focus for the Democratic Party.

              That’s what has led to a mother-daughter team working a “body broker service” that they ran out of the funeral home the two owned.

              The team, based in Colorado, is being forced to appear in court to answer for charges of mail fraud – among other things.

              Megan Hess, the daughter, has pled guilty. Shirley Koch, the mother and owner of Sunset Mesa Funeral Home has pled not guilty – though there’s a change-of-plea hearing this week.

              The two women allegedly established Donor Services, a nonprofit, so that they could collect cadavers and body parts to sell to buyers within the scientific and medical community.

              Imagine finding out that your grandmother was not actually cremated or buried as the funeral home told you – and instead, was sold to the medical community for experiments.

              To say that you’d be horrified is an understatement.

              The indictment identifies that Hess and Koch received permission on some occasions from family members to collect tumors and small tissue samples. What they didn’t seek permission for is the other parts that they took – including torsos, limbs, and even heads. In some instances, they sold the entire body.

              When families were given the remains, it was not the remains of their loved ones, according to a report by the New York Times.

              Thanks to the profits that the scheme generated, the Sunset Mesa Funeral Home offered some of the most affordable cremation services around. They provided their services to the population of Montrose, Colorado – a city of approximately 20,000 people, about an hour outside of Grand Junction.

              The scheme ran from 2010 to 2018.

              The Daily Sentinel has also said that Hess and Koch took advantage of the poor and desperate so that they could maintain their inventory of body parts.

              Selling off body parts wasn’t the only thing the women were guilty of. Documents were often forged so that buyers thought that they were getting bodies that had a clean bill of health. Instead, some had tested positive for diseases like hepatitis and HIV. The documents, however, showed that all were negative.

              By Hess pleading guilty to mail fraud, some of the other counts of mail fraud along with a charge of transporting hazardous waste, will be dropped.

              Hess told the U.S. District Court that she’s taking responsibility and that “I exceeded the scope of the consent, and I’m trying to make an effort to make it right.”

              Many family members don’t believe that the plea agreement is enough. Others want to hear that the women admit guilt inside of an open court.

              What these women have done is illegal and more than a little disturbing. Yet, with most of their charges being dropped, they don’t face nearly the kind of sentencing that they should.

              It’s yet again proof that the Democrats aren’t really concerned about reducing the amount of crime. People can do the unthinkable and walk away with little more than a slap on the wrist.

                Unlike any other topic that has become political, the death of a servicemember can bring together people from both sides of the aisle. When this death is the last surviving World War II Medal of Honor recipient Hershel W. “Woody” Williams, it garners the attention of every politician in Washington.

                With House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer announcing his laying in honor at the Capitol building, they paused to say that this gesture is not just about Williams, but about all those who served in WWII. Announced on July 3rd, it’s fitting to have such an honor announced the day before Independence Day.

                In her remarks, Pelosi stated “Woody Williams embodied the best of America: living a life of duty, honor, and courage. When Woody lies in honor under the Capitol Dome, it will be with immense gratitude for his service that the Congress will pay tribute to this legendary hero, and all of the patriots who fought for our nation in World War II.”

                While her words towards our current military and many who have served are usually given with a degree of disgust and looking down her nose at them, these remarks came off as truly sincere. It’s almost as if she figured out that not all the patriots are bad people, even in her book.

                Schumer’s remarks much like Pelosi’s are not in keeping with the same tone that his past comments have been delivered with, but they certainly carried his distinctive NY sense of American pride that has largely been missing from anyone associated with the left.

                “This is only a small tribute to someone who has made as impactful contributions to America as Woody and all our brave soldiers who fought against tyranny and defended our country in World War II. Whether it was for his acts of bravery in combat or his tireless advocacy for all veterans and their families, Woody made our entire country, especially his fellow West Virginians, proud.”

                Given the immense dedication to the mission and his men, Williams’ award of the MOH is incredibly well deserved.

                With four riflemen providing cover fire for him, Williams fought alone for four hours going alone from Japanese trenches and pillboxes. Placing charges and retreating only to rearm himself and to get explosives, he singlehandedly cleared an immense pathway for his fellow Marines and brought great credit upon the Corps.

                Woody Williams was far more than just a hero; he was the greatest of the greatest generation, and a model for future generations. Thank you, @WoodyWilliams45, for your friendship and your lifetime of service to Veterans and Gold Star Families. pic.twitter.com/AgxuTYeNnf

                — Senator Joe Manchin (@Sen_JoeManchin) July 3, 2022

                Seeing people from both sides of the aisle come together to honor this great man is something we need to see more of from the left. Even if it’s only window dressing to make their other positions seem more palatable to other Americans, coming together to honor a great man like this Marine is a great way to set the foundation for future bipartisan cooperation.

                While he takes his rightful place in the Capitol to lay in honor, this is a time to honor his legacy. We don’t do that by continuing the infighting, but by finding common ground.

                When his unit was under attack, Williams was willing to risk everything to save his Marines. He sought to find the hard answers to end the evil actions of the Japanese and take Iwo Jima. With four others to watch his back, there was only so much they could do with their rifles, and the rest of this mission was on Williams to a complete.

                Much the same, we are now in a similar battle with the left. As so many Americans are finding themselves helpless to take on this mode of activism and wokeness, we must remain strong, determined, and ready to face our attackers and to stand up for what is right for all Americans.

                We all have four men to watch our backs as we march towards victory, we just need to use them.

                  Unlike any other topic that has become political, the death of a servicemember can bring together people from both sides of the aisle. When this death is the last surviving World War II Medal of Honor recipient Hershel W. “Woody” Williams, it garners the attention of every politician in Washington.

                  With House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer announcing his laying in honor at the Capitol building, they paused to say that this gesture is not just about Williams, but about all those who served in WWII. Announced on July 3rd, it’s fitting to have such an honor announced the day before Independence Day.

                  In her remarks, Pelosi stated “Woody Williams embodied the best of America: living a life of duty, honor, and courage. When Woody lies in honor under the Capitol Dome, it will be with immense gratitude for his service that the Congress will pay tribute to this legendary hero, and all of the patriots who fought for our nation in World War II.”

                  While her words towards our current military and many who have served are usually given with a degree of disgust and looking down her nose at them, these remarks came off as truly sincere. It’s almost as if she figured out that not all the patriots are bad people, even in her book.

                  Schumer’s remarks much like Pelosi’s are not in keeping with the same tone that his past comments have been delivered with, but they certainly carried his distinctive NY sense of American pride that has largely been missing from anyone associated with the left.

                  “This is only a small tribute to someone who has made as impactful contributions to America as Woody and all our brave soldiers who fought against tyranny and defended our country in World War II. Whether it was for his acts of bravery in combat or his tireless advocacy for all veterans and their families, Woody made our entire country, especially his fellow West Virginians, proud.”

                  Given the immense dedication to the mission and his men, Williams’ award of the MOH is incredibly well deserved.

                  With four riflemen providing cover fire for him, Williams fought alone for four hours going alone from Japanese trenches and pillboxes. Placing charges and retreating only to rearm himself and to get explosives, he singlehandedly cleared an immense pathway for his fellow Marines and brought great credit upon the Corps.

                  Woody Williams was far more than just a hero; he was the greatest of the greatest generation, and a model for future generations. Thank you, @WoodyWilliams45, for your friendship and your lifetime of service to Veterans and Gold Star Families. pic.twitter.com/AgxuTYeNnf

                  Seeing people from both sides of the aisle come together to honor this great man is something we need to see more of from the left. Even if it’s only window dressing to make their other positions seem more palatable to other Americans, coming together to honor a great man like this Marine is a great way to set the foundation for future bipartisan cooperation.

                  While he takes his rightful place in the Capitol to lay in honor, this is a time to honor his legacy. We don’t do that by continuing the infighting, but by finding common ground.

                  When his unit was under attack, Williams was willing to risk everything to save his Marines. He sought to find the hard answers to end the evil actions of the Japanese and take Iwo Jima. With four others to watch his back, there was only so much they could do with their rifles, and the rest of this mission was on Williams to a complete.

                  Much the same, we are now in a similar battle with the left. As so many Americans are finding themselves helpless to take on this mode of activism and wokeness, we must remain strong, determined, and ready to face our attackers and to stand up for what is right for all Americans.

                  We all have four men to watch our backs as we march towards victory, we just need to use them.

                  Cost of Democrats Betrayal Hits Millions as Truth Comes Out regarding the True Cost of Their Actions

                    Alejandro Mayorkas is the criminal mastermind overseeing the southern border. He is Joe Biden’s Homeland Security chief and could not care about keeping the country safe from foreign invaders. The man thinks that the border issues directly result from Donald Trump’s failed policies. And he is not afraid to share his pointless opinion of a belief based nothing on lies.

                    The Democrats fought hard to keep Donald Trump from being able to finish the wall that would have secured the border and made life a lot safer for people living near it. A structure that would have kept illegals out and made life safe at the border. Mayorkas admitted that Joe Biden had wasted $72 million in shutting down all the wall construction.

                    Mayorkas tried to make it sound like Donald Trump was the problem. He said, “We inherited a broken and dismantled system that is already under strain. It was not built to manage the current levels of migration flow. Only Congress can fix it. We have effectively managed an unprecedented number of noncitizens seeking to enter the United States.”

                    Congress was in a position to fix the border while Trump was president. But the Democrats kept dragging their feet and refused to work with Republicans to develop a solution that would work.

                    Millions of illegals continue to press the border, and all Biden does is put them on buses and release them into the country’s interior. The delusional man thinks that Biden is handling the border just fine. But letting illegals walk on across without intervention is not handling anything. It is letting a problem get out of control. And eventually, it will destroy the country in the process.

                    Biden does not care about the country. All the old man cares about is himself and pacifying illegals. He refuses to stand up to the migrants. Instead of telling them to enter the country the legal way, he wants to let them enter any way they want. And that is putting American lives in danger near the border.

                    Newsmax reports that “DHS released more than 80,000 of those migrants, raising the total number of illegal immigrants released under the Biden administration to 836,225.” The old man is on pace to set a world record for letting illegals into the country.

                    Biden and his administration willfully wasted millions of dollars to stop securing the border. Terrorists have an open the door to enter the country from the south and be transported by the Biden express to their next target. And without intervention, there is no chance of catching them before killing innocent people. It is a clear signal that the president and his staff are not concerned about protecting the country.

                    Mayorkas is blind to the truth. He is also in favor of ending Title 42 and binding the hands of border agents tasked with enforcing immigration laws. The Homeland Security Chief reasons that the 1944 law keeps people from being registered at the border; The agents turn them away.

                    But registering people under Biden’s watch is not border control. It takes an inventory of the names of people he is getting into the country illegally. Biden’s approach to the border marks him as a traitor. He has willfully chosen to assist illegals in invading America.

                    A president who cared about the country would have already secured the border or allowed the construction of the wall to be finished. The funds that Biden wasted would have better been used to provide the equipment agents need to do their job of protecting people.

                    The president and his staff have proven that they cannot be trusted with American security. They are more concerned with confusing the issue to justify letting illegals wander across the border. But even more alarming than their betrayal is the frivolous spending of money they have wasted on opening the border.

                    Summer Plans? Omicron Subvariant Says Not So Fast…

                      The Democrats have had to give up a lot of control since the pandemic waned. All of a sudden, people are able to go wherever they please – and without a mask. Even the most liberal of cities and states have lifted mask mandates and social distancing rules so that people can have their American freedoms back.

                      Oh, but wait.

                      Just when you thought it was safe to go back into society, there’s an Omicron subvariant rearing its ugly head. And some researchers say that it could pose a problem for us here in the United States.

                      Across the globe, we’ve seen some COVID infections soar as people try to return to normal. Even cruise cases have increased – and you need proof of vaccinations to get on board.

                      Most countries have accepted the rise and fall of COVID cases as part of life now. The UK, for example, has said that they’re not planning on going into lockdown again. They’ve been there, they’ve done that, and people have the masks as souvenirs.

                      Omicron Subvariant BA.2 is the official name that is causing some concern in the various health communities. What is it and should we be worried?

                      Well, so far, Dr. Fauci hasn’t poked his head out of hiding to tell us how worried we need to be. So, either he’s not concerned, or he’s realized the hard truth that no one cares what he thinks about it.

                      BA.2 has become the dominant strain in the U.S. – particularly in heavily populated areas like New York City. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that as of March 19, there was a 13” increase in COVID cases over the prior week – and the subvariant was responsible for approximately 35 percent of those cases.

                      The symptoms for the subvariant are similar to what you’ve grown accustomed to with COVID-19. This includes everything from fever to cough to diarrhea. There are a few other symptoms that are particularly associated with omicron and its subvariant, including fatigue, congestion, and a runny nose.

                      Is there any way to know for sure that you have the subvariant? Not unless you go into the hospital for some serious testing. You’ll pop positive for COVID with any of the home testing kits that you can get, so that will tell you everything you need to know about the need to quarantine away from others.

                      Since the subvariant has so many symptoms as allergies and the common cold, most people don’t realize they have it. This, of course, leads to it spreading to more people.

                      Dr. Rachael Lee, an associate professor of infectious disease said, “We will have to wait and see what exactly that means” regarding the symptoms and what people should do. Her advice is to stay hydrated.
