Is Unlocking Closed and Indifferent Minds Possible?

by Gary D. Barnett, Lew Rockwell:

“We are seeing a globalization of indifference. There is a culture of conflict, which makes us think only of ourselves. Makes us live in soap bubbles which, however lovely, are also insubstantial. We’ve become used to the suffering of others. It doesn’t affect me. No one in our world feels responsible.”

Jonathan Pryce

As should be very apparent, this is a contentious subject, a double edged sword of sorts, and one that requires open and honest explanation. It should be obvious, but it is not, that no one can forcibly open another’s closed mind, or tame and stifle his indifference. No matter the power wielded, no matter the desired intent, no matter a gallant effort, wasted or not; each person is a unique individual, regardless of his collective desires, or his cowardice in the face of adversity and human suffering.

Reject the Normalcy Bias

by Kurt Schlichter, Townhall:

One of the most powerful tactics in the left’s arsenal is leveraging the reluctance of conservatives to accept that the foundational reality of our society has changed. We are not a free country in the sense we were just a decade ago – hell, the Durham Report just showed our ruling caste collectively framing a president they disliked and we all know there will be zero consequences. But part of the reason is human nature. The left exploits our normalcy bias, the tendency to assume that things right now are the same as they have always been. Yet, this is not normal. This whole political/cultural morass that America has fallen into is the opposite of normal. And some of us just can’t handle the truth.

Black Cleopatra Is Total Fail

from Moonbattery:

Netflix tried to change history by making Cleopatra black. Instead, it made history with the biggest TV fail yet:

Forbes magazine reports the controversial production has not just garnered the lowest audience score in Netflix history on debut, it has essentially the lowest audience score possible on Rotten Tomatoes at one percent.

Big Brother’s Window Into Your Brain? Mind-reading Tech Is Already Here

by Selwyn Duke, The New American:

Mind your manners, we were told as children. But may you one day have to mind your mind?

Mind-reading technology is still considered the stuff of science fiction, of, for example, the alien-origin children in movie Village of the Damned (1960) who could probe others’ thoughts. But China is already using “emotional surveillance technology” wireless sensors to monitor workers’ brain activity and emotional state. What’s more, this is mere small potatoes compared to what university researchers have just developed: a “noninvasive” means through which thoughts can be converted into text.

‘The Left’ Plunges Deeper Every Day Into Mental Illness As Everything Democrats Do Blows Up In Their Own Faces, Wile E. Coyote Style – This Is The Death Of A Country

by James Howard Kunstler, All News Pipeline:

“The average Democrat knows the Biden family is profoundly corrupt and they simply don’t care…. Sam Harris spoke for all of them when he said it wouldn’t matter if Hunter’s laptop was packed w/pictures of dead kids.” — MartyrMade on Twitter

This is the dirty secret of our time: the device that the Woke / Progressive elite used to finally get rid of Donald Trump — Covid-19 — shoved them over a cliff Wile E. Coyote style. And now, as they freefall off that cliff, the supposed antidote to Covid-19 — getting vaccinated — is blowing up in their faces, again, Wile E. Coyote style. The elite now have to wake up every day and wonder if the vaccines they rushed to get will end up killing them prematurely. This is what has finally driven them crazy. And, of course, crazy people will do crazy things: like destroy their own country.

‘Joined the Woke Cult’: Miller Lite Under Fire over Feminist Ad Campaign

by Hannah Bleau, Breitbart:

Miller Lite is under fire after a March ad campaign caught renewed attention for its overtly feminist tone — which is now reigniting the outrage that ensued after Bud Light appeared to collaborate with biological man who believes he is a woman — as companies continue to embrace the radical woke agenda.

The “Bad $#!T to Good $#!T” campaign, ostensibly debuted in March for women’s month, attempts to right apparent wrongs for women in the beer industry.

Why is Miriam Cahn’s Art Depicting Child Abuse Exposed in Museums? And Why is Macron Defending Her?

from Vigilant Citizen:

The Swiss painter Miriam Cahn caused outraged when she exposed paintings depicting graphic abuse in a Paris museum. While people were horrified by these “works of art”, Emmanuel Macron and the entire media establishment have been praising and defending her. Let’s look at the “art” elite stooges are so vehemently defending.

US Navy Enlists Drag Queen For ‘Digital Ambassador’ Role To Attract More Recruits

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:


The US military can no longer recruit the traditional backbone of the fighting force–white southern conservative heterosexual men.  Few Democrats can be found in America’s armed forces–only 29%.

White southern males see serving their country as honorable.  But when they see their country being taken away from them in every respect–in Budweiser, Gillett, Disney, Google, et. al., ads and public policy advocacy, in corporate advertisements that never show a white family, and when they suffer the outrage of being required as military recruits to subject themselves to brainwashing called “sensitivity training” in which they hear that they are racist and misogynist oppressors of blacks and women and find that those taught to regard them as oppressors are their officers, and that they cannot be promoted because they are racially and gender over-represented in the officer ranks, white heterosexual males unconfused about their gender simply have stopped joining the American military.

Miller Lite Parent Company Molson Coors Pushes Woke Corporate Diversity And Climate Agenda

by Ben Zeisloft, Daily Wire:

The parent company of Miller Lite, which garnered social media backlash for recently publishing a feminist beer commercial, has advanced several climate and diversity efforts in recent years.

Miller Lite partnered with female comedian Ilana Glazer for a Women’s History Month advertisement which blasted the beverage industry’s past objectification, announcing efforts to donate fertilizer so that female brewers could grow hops, the flowers used as a bittering and stability agent in beer. Enthusiasts of the beverage, many of whom were already frustrated by the partnership between self-described transgender social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney and rival beer brand Bud Light, criticized the feminist advertisement online.

Biden Denounces Whites at Black College

from Moonbattery:

Ever digging for new depths, Joe Biden denounced his fellow Caucasians as the greatest threat to America while pandering to the blacks who put him in power at Howard University:

“The most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy,” Biden said during the address.

The racially correct audience applauded.

“I’m not saying this because I’m at a Black HBCU, I say it wherever I go,” Biden added.

HBCU = historically black college/university.

The Woke Plot

by Lew Rockwell, Lew Rockwell:

When people complain about woke culture, they usually think about universities. They are sick of fake courses, demands for diversity, constant complaints of oppression, and the like. What we need to realize is that the situation is much worse than that. Woke culture in universities is just one part of an insidious plot to make our entire society woke.

Dr. Paul Alexander writes on May 9, ““’When other priorities, like gender or race, are introduced as a metric of assignment and advancement, the foundations of performance-based competition are sacrificed and the emphasis on safety takes a backseat,’ a current Air Force instructor pilot and former trainer for Undergraduate Pilot Training, who spoke on a condition of anonymity due to fear of reprisal, told the DCNF.
