Ousted Border Patrol Chief Describes ‘HORRIFYING’ Threats to U.S. | The Glenn Beck Program – YouTube

Rodney Scott, former U.S. Border Patrol Chief, was forced out by the Biden administration in June. But now Scott, a 29-year veteran of the agency, is speaking out about the countless threats this administration’s lack of concern for border security presents for Americans everywhere. In this clip, Glenn reads Scott’s powerful letter, which he recently sent to several congressmen, describing those concerns: ‘This is a national security threat.’ It’s all ‘horrifying,’ Glenn says.

Jim Jordan: Should we be surprised Afghan refugees weren’t properly vetted? – YouTube

Jim Jordan: “Americans were left behind, allies were left behind, $90 billion of equipment and weapons were left behind. Joe Biden described all that as an ‘extraordinary success,’ so should we be surprised that they didn’t properly vet the people they did bring out?”

Tulsi Gabbard: The Deep State, Elite & Media Destroy Outsiders, Anyone Deemed A Threat To Their Power | Video | RealClearPolitics

Former presidential candidate and Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) joined ‘Special Report’ host Bret Baier on Thursday to discuss the White House’s approach to domestic and foreign policies.

“Outsiders: people like me, people like Donald Trump, it doesn’t matter, Democrat or Republican, if they identify … someone who is not going to toe the line [or] is not someone who is not going to follow kind of the establishment way of things that are accepted, they pose a threat.”

“That confirms what I have known to be true, which is that you have the power elite, people like Hillary Clinton, those around her working with the media, the deep state in order to bring down the destruction and downfall of anyone that they deem to be a threat to their power,” Gabbard said.

“They will do all they can to silence or censor or cancel what they view to be a threat. So this is bigger than about me or Trump or anyone else,” she added.

Gabbard said this habit in the “Deep State” is “a threat to our country and democracy.”

“The arrogance that these people have in thinking they have the right to manipulate the American people what they view, what they hear, what they see all to preserve their own selfish interests, not caring at all about the impact on the country, the impact of the American people or who gets hurt along the way,” Gabbard said.

Gabbard on the border: “Utter disaster… directly attributed to the Biden-Harris administration’s open-border policy. This is not only a humanitarian crisis. It is a national security crisis and it’s something I have said all along, which is that if we do not secure our borders, then we can’t have a secure nation. There are so many issues that have happened under this administration that have led to this point and their continued failure of leadership is exacerbating the crisis that we are seeing play out before our very eyes.”

Protesters Heckle Al Sharpton At Del Rio Border: “Why Are You Stoking Racism Where It Doesn’t Exist?” | Video | RealClearPolitics

Pro-border protesters heckled Al Sharpton on Thursday as he attempted to deliver a speech on the treatment of Haitian migrants by U.S. Border Patrol agents on horseback at a press conference near the Del Rio International Bridge.

“We don’t want your racism in Texas, get out of here!” someone said.

“Get out of Texas,” another said.

“Why are you stoking racism where it doesn’t exist?” someone asked.

Sen. Graham: Biden Has “Surrendered The Border” To Cartels, Coyotes, And Human Smugglers | Video | RealClearPolitics

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said President Joe Biden’s handling of the U.S.-Mexico border is yet another “surrender” by the Biden administration following the Afghanistan withdrawal.

“Maxine Waters is unhappy with the cowboys,” Graham began. “Well, you know who the cowboys are? They’re federal law enforcement officers with a duty to protect the border, and she sees them as the bad guy.

“So, all I can say is what Biden has done is he surrendered the border to drug cartels, coyotes, and human smugglers,” the Senator said. “He surrendered Afghanistan, to terrorists, the Taliban and al-Qaeda, and a major terrorist attack is going to come our way. Because between the combination of allowing Afghanistan to fall back into terrorist hands, and have a completely open and broken border here in the United States, it’s just a matter of time that the terrorists come through that border to kill a bunch of us.”

“Here’s what I want to say to the American people, the man on horseback is there to protect your family, the people rushing our border have put us all under siege,” Graham said. “And I think the most inhumane thing going on right now in America is that the men and women of the Border Patrol have been completely abandoned, demagogues scapegoat, and treated like dirt by elected officials in the Democratic Party and this administration.”

“So, I’m not unhappy, I am pissed,” Graham said. “Secretary Mayorkas needs to resign. He’s completely incompetent. The border is not closed, it has been surrendered.”

This is yet another surrender of the border by the Biden Administration. It is only a matter of time until terrorists seize upon this debacle.– Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) September 23, 2021

What Ever Happened to Objective Truth? — The Aquila Report

If a proclamation is made, it is either true or false. When it comes to a particular issue, there is no such thing as your truth and my truth. It’s always possible we are both wrong, of course, but we cannot both be right at the same time and in the same sense. It is impossible. If we ever get to a place where we properly understand objective truth, I believe we will simultaneously have respectful dialogue with those we disagree with. When it comes to the huge issues in culture, objective truth should humble us. We should all be able to say, “I could be wrong,” and mean it.

One of the major cultural trends happening today concerns the nature of truth. Truth has largely been replaced by pragmatism and emotionalism. Pragmatism claims if something works, it must be true. Conversely, emotionalism, at it’s basic level, claims if something feels right or wrong, it probably is. Any concept of truth which exists outside of ourselves has not just taken a back seat, it has left the vehicle altogether.

Objective truth, according to Steven Cowan and James Spiegel, is a “real feature of the world that is independent of what a person or group thinks about it. Thus, for the objectivist, if a proposition is true, then it is so whether or not any person believes it. Further, it is true for everyone at all times and places.” I dare say no one speaks about truth in these terms today. In our current world, your truth is yours and my truth is mine. We better not blur the lines, either, or there will be major backlash from all parties involved.

It has always baffled me how anyone could believe truth belongs to a human person or group. We are all, in one sense, creatures of our environments. Surely if my parents insist stars are holes in the sky that allow heaven’s light to shine through, I’ll spend a good amount of my growing years believing it. Furthermore, if my older brother teaches me God created meat for the consumption of humanity and anyone who thinks differently are unenlightened airheads, I will spend much of my life feeling superior to vegetarians.

I’m convinced most of the bickering happening in our world today comes from a difference in perspectives. One person believes they have truth at the exclusion of those who disagree, while those who disagree believe such a person is foolish and simply needs to be educated. Objective truth, by definition, says something is true or false regardless of opinion and with zero neutrality. It exists apart from any system, idea, or human personality.

I was first exposed to objective truth when I began studying Philosophy in college. I recall experiencing an aha moment when I first learned about the correspondence theory of truth.

Microaggression: Political Correctness Run Amok — Daily Declaration


About to compliment a co-worker on her new haircut? Think again, that’s microaggressive behaviour that implies all you see is her looks, devaluing her professional accomplishments.

Introducing Microaggression

In a discussion about candidates for a position at your workplace, you say, “I think the most qualified person should get the job.”

Don’t say THAT!

You are implying that there are people who are more qualified than others, which means you are labelling some candidates as less qualified.

You claim, patriotically, “America is a land of opportunity!”

OOPS, you are implying that there’s a level “playing field” so that if someone hasn’t been able to “make it,” it’s his or her fault.

Don’t get it?

It’s obvious among the politically correct: Inequality is pervasive in the U.S. and certain people groups are doomed to failure from birth.

On a flight, you politely engage your obviously Asian seatmate in conversation, asking where he is from. The Microaggression Theory interpretation? You are implying that the person is not a true American.

The History of the Concept

Microaggression Theory began at least as early as 1970 with creeping political correctness about racial issues. Should we say “Black Americans” or “African-Americans?”

Shortly afterwards, women began being oversensitive about labels, attitudes, biases related to gender. Not so gradually, any marginalised group – whether disabled, minority or religious – became aggrieved by casual conversation deemed to be derogatory.

Today, it’s risky to carry on a conversation with anyone lest you run into someone’s sensitivity and unintentionally cause emotional trauma!

Everyone is a victim and has been emotionally wounded . . . so beware.

No wonder Americans are, increasingly, more lonely and isolated. It’s dangerous to talk to anyone. We are now a society of pervasive witch-hunts living in a culture of victimhood.

In short, Americans have become overly sensitive and even paranoid lest they offend someone and inadvertently provoke someone to anger.

Judgementalism and Bullying

While early microaggressions were primarily racial or gender-based, now anybody can take offence at anything. “Bullying” now rivals judgmentalism as the ultimate sin, and that includes using the wrong pronoun in referring to someone who is obviously male or female if they self-identify as the opposite gender or even “something” else.

Words like “rude,” “insensitive,” or “demeaning” are passé; those are all encompassed with one word, “microaggression.” Tort law now calls cases based on such fragile complaints, “eggshell plaintiffs.”

The secularists have pushed true religion from the public square and replaced it with political correctness – a false religion with their own commandments.

Despising the God-breathed truths and commandments, they’ve created their own rules and regulations.

There is an ever-evolving new set of standards that, lacking any authority, we have to guess at what those standards might be. Woe to anyone who is not up to speed as to the latest version of the theology spawned by their ideology.

The secularist left rejects any faith based on revelation or authority; instead, we have a self-identified elite explaining what is acceptable and what is not acceptable conversation and comment . . . and what will get you excommunicated from polite society if you miscue.

The New Commandments

Ironically, Microaggression Theory inadvertently illustrates that it is an integral part of our human nature to have a religion. To that point, Pascal is often quoted,

“There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every person, and it can never be filled by any created thing. It can only be filled by God, made known through Jesus Christ.”

Actually, the exact quote in its full context is even better:

 “What else does this craving, and this helplessness, proclaim but that there was once in man a true happiness, of which all that now remains is the empty print and trace? This he tries in vain to fill with everything around him, seeking in things that are not there the help he cannot find in those that are, though none can help, since this infinite abyss can be filled only with an infinite and immutable object; in other words by God himself” [Blaise Pascal, Pensees, Penquin, 1966, 75.]

Leftists, denying God’s authority, have been compelled to create their own set of rules and regulations. Rejecting divine revelation, they rely on subtle and ambiguous interpretations to reveal the real “truth” of feelings beliefs and attitudes.

Replacing scriptural teachings about inherent God-given equality, they construct long charts of forbidden language and the corresponding “hate-filled” interpretations.

These new Pharisees devise longer and longer lists of “microaggressable themes” and try to document every possible sensitivity that might be affronted by words, deeds or attitudes.

A Generation of Victims

Although there is no documentation of psychological or physical harm to the offended persons’ health or well-being, there is significant speculation about loss of self-confidence and such problems as depression, anger and increased anxiety.

With the expansion of microaggressions to include issues of sexuality, it’s not surprising that the fad –– the “hottest concept” on today’s college and university campuses –– has “created a whole new generation of permanent victims.”

Phrases like “white privilege” and “institutional racism” are thrown around to explain supposedly “hostile” campus environments.

Diversity initiatives are de rigueur as a means of assuring “cross-cultural competency.” So-called “safe spaces” are now required to “protect” the sensibilities of students who will soon be out in the workforce, with ramifications that will affect all of us for years to come.

Let’s hope we all live long enough to see this modern Tower of Babble crumble beneath the ever-growing weight of its insanity and see our youth liberated from trivial problems to enjoy a new maturity and learn to deal with real problems.

COVID Shot Mandates, Boosters & Adverse Effects — VCY America

Date:  September 23, 2021 
Host:  Jim Schneider 
​Guest: Barbara Loe Fisher

Jim Schneider and Barbara Loe Fisher unpacked a lot in today’s program! Shot mandates are traveling at lightning speed across the country and it’s happening on so many fronts. With the promise of an executive order, President Biden is utilizing OSHA to order companies with 100 or more employees to receive the jab. Previously, the President had ordered the COVID jab for federal employees and contractors.

Recently a Florida mother was shocked when she learned that to renew her lease at her apartment complex, she would have to show proof of vaccination. This mandate has even gone to the military. It’s reported that as many as a quarter of all active duty Navy SEALs do not want the jab and as such, can put our military readiness in jeopardy. Hundreds of employees of a North Carolina hospital system have been suspended because they refused the jab.

Meanwhile the death toll and the severe injury toll is escalating from those who have received the jab. Booster shots are now gaining approval for those age 65 or older, and those considered high risk. Now Pfizer is saying that their COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective for children ages 5-11 at one-third the dose.

Barbara Loe Fisher is president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC). She has researched, analyzed, and publicly articulated the major issues involving the science, policy, law, ethics, and politics of vaccination to become one of the world’s leading non-medical, consumer advocacy experts on the subject.
