WATCH: Former West Point Cadets’ Reasons for Leaving Academy Should Horrify Every Red-Blooded American

Former West Point Cadet Says Military Academy ‘Glorifies Ignorant Submission and Unethical Behavior’

By Fox News. Former cadet at the United States Military Academy Hannah MacDonald said that West Point “glorifies ignorant submission and unethical behavior” Thursday on “Hannity,” joining two other former cadets in their criticism of the academy.

For MacDonald and her fellow former cadets Nickaylah Sampson and Willow Brown, enrolling at the nation’s oldest service academy was a dream come true. . .

Sampson remembered talk of briefs about “White rage” and “extremism.” The former cadet found such discussions “ridiculous,” saying “[i]t really had nothing to do with…bettering yourself as an Army officer.”

MacDonald recounted tutoring students writing essays about critical race theory and socialism this fall, explaining that the students “didn’t agree” with such ideas but “thought their professors would enjoy [their essays] because [they were] in line with the books they were reading.”

Her disappointment was especially profound given her Christian upbringing, in which she said she was taught that “there’s no greater love than to lay down your life for someone else.” (Read more from “Former West Point Cadet Says Military Academy ‘Glorifies Ignorant Submission and Unethical Behavior’” HERE)

Former West Point Cadets’ Reasons for Leaving Academy Should Horrify Every Red-Blooded American

By Biz Pac Review. On Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday, host Sean Hannity spoke with three former West Point cadets who were effectively driven from the military academy because of its philosophical shift in values as well as for refusing to submit to the COVID vaccine.

Although the stated policy of the academy was that vaccinations were optional for cadets, the trio nevertheless endured targeting and harassment which eventually took a toll on their well-being and paralyzed their military career endeavors. It all came to a head on September 27th, following the U.S. government-imposed vaccine mandate.

Cadets were then “instructed in a meeting to either get vaccinated, file for an exemption or separate from the academy,” Hannity said. According to several cadets in attendance, they were denied legal counsel after being assured they could acquire it.

Willow Brown, who left the academy in the spring, explained the reasoning behind her decision to leave West Point.

“I went to the academy hoping to serve my country and bring the fight to the enemy. I found myself instead in the classroom learning about how to be more sensitive, and this woke ideology that had taken over West Point really surprised me.” (Read more from “Former West Point Cadets’ Reasons for Leaving Academy Should Horrify Every Red-Blooded American” HERE)

GOP Rep. Visits Jan. 6 Detainees at D.C. Jail, Says They Are ‘Suffering Greatly’

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Thursday visited the D.C. jail and reported that detainees charged in connection with the Capitol riot were “suffering greatly.”

The Georgia Republican said her visiting the detainees in the “Patriot” wing of the D.C. Central Treatment Facility “was like walking into a prisoner of war camp and seeing men [whose] eyes can’t believe someone had made it in to see them.”

Mrs. Greene said they have “virtually no medical care, very poor food quality, and [are] being put through re-education which most of them are rejecting.”

She said the detainees “have felt forgotten and hopeless” and that she was “greeted by men with overwhelming cheers who rushed out to meet me with tears streaming down their faces.”

The lawmaker is planning to release a report about the visit and said she is committed to bringing an end to this “political war.” (Read more from “GOP Rep. Visits Jan. 6 Detainees at D.C. Jail, Says They Are ‘Suffering Greatly’” HERE)

Evil Biden Administration Pushes Supreme Court to Halt Texas Heartbeat Law

The Biden administration on Monday asked the Supreme Court to block the Texas Heartbeat Act, accusing the state of “nullifying” the constitutional rights of its citizens.

The Texas law, also called S.B. 8, allows private citizens to sue abortion providers if they perform abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detectable. A 5-4 Court in September refused to block implementation of the law, rebuffing an emergency appeal from abortion clinics in Texas. The Justice Department says its claim is different because the federal government has a special duty to stop end-runs around the Constitution.

“The United States has a sovereign interest in ensuring the supremacy of federal law by preventing a state from suspending a constitutional right within its borders,” the government’s emergency appeal reads.

The Biden administration has taken the lead in the legal fight against the Texas Heartbeat Act. Apart from Monday’s emergency appeal, Attorney General Merrick Garland has promised to step up prosecutions under a federal law that forbids injuring, intimidating, or interfering with patients or workers near abortion clinics. And President Joe Biden has promised a “whole-of-government” response to the law.

The Justice Department also suggested the Court should add the Texas case to its regular docket and resolve the case through normal process. The justices would hear arguments sometime in early 2022, with a decision to follow by summer. (Read more from “Biden Pushes Supreme Court to Halt Texas Heartbeat Law” HERE)

Under Biden Administration Plan, Poor Would Be Three Times More Likely To Get IRS Audit Than 1 Percenters

Under a new Biden administration proposal, the Internal Revenue Service is three times more likely to audit a citizen making less than $25,000 rather than someone in the top 1 percent of wealth.

The new proposal, which would require financial institutions to annually report customers’ account deposits and withdrawals at $600 or more, gives the IRS more leverage over those making less than $25,000, because they are more likely to have irregular income. Over the next decade, the reporting on more than 140 million bank accounts would raise an estimated $700 billion in tax revenue — which would cover social spending in the Reconciliation Bill.

Discussion of raising the threshold to $10,000 has not eased any tension. More than 40 banks urged lawmakers to vote against such a proposal in a letter addressed to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. The banks warned against the mandatory collection of most Americans’ financial information “without proper explanation of how the IRS will store, protect, and use this enormous trove of personal financial information” could result a “tremendous liability” (Read more from “Under Biden Administration Plan, Poor Would Be Three Times More Likely To Get IRS Audit Than 1 Percenters” HERE)

YouTube To Censor All Anti-Vaccine Content

YouTube is cracking down on anti-vaccination content on its site, taking down several channels from high-profile anti-vaccination activists.

Channels belonging to activists such as Dr. Joseph Mercola and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. are among those that YouTube will be taking down in its efforts to police anti-vaccination content on the social media site, according to the Washington Post . Any video content that claims “commonly used” vaccines already approved by health officials and the medical community might be life-threatening or ineffective will be banned from the site as part of YouTube’s new set of policies.

“Developing robust policies takes time,” Matt Halprin, YouTube’s vice president of global trust and safety, said of the decision not to act sooner. “We wanted to launch a policy that is comprehensive, enforceable with consistency, and adequately addresses the challenge.”

The Biden administration has encouraged social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to get better at policing anti-vaccination content, especially posts that could sow misinformation about the coronavirus vaccine.

President Joe Biden previously slammed social media companies, such as Facebook, as partially at fault for people dying from the coronavirus due to the misinformation content on their sites, stating that “they’re killing people.” Following criticism, Biden later walked back this comment, explaining that he wanted Facebook to do more to patrol the amount of misinformation about the coronavirus vaccines on its site.

The Horrific Afghanistan Withdrawal Re-Opened Our Nation’s 9/11 Wounds; Biden Marks 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Criticizing ‘Dark Forces’ in America Against ‘Peaceful Religion’ of Islam

By The Federalist. The 9/11 tragedy and two decades of responses to it will never rest easy in the minds of those who lost loved ones, or still suffer scars from the trauma of the deadliest attack on our own soil. This year’s anniversary has most outraged about the reemergence of the Taliban, the irresponsible way this administration exited Afghanistan, but mostly the idea that some Americans and allies are expendable.

We broke our promise, we violated our honor, and we have invited harsher terrorist attacks in the future, with our own hardware. President Biden’s foolish decisions dishonor the memory and heroism of the thousands of people who died in the towers, in the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania, and the many more brave Americans in the military who died in the 20-year War on Terror.

To be fair, the Bush administration also made hasty mistakes amid a desire to spike the ball and declare “Mission Accomplished.” But lessons are supposed to be learned so mistakes are not repeated. For Team Biden, it should never have been about when we would leave Afghanistan, but how.

Unfortunately, Biden has allowed his administration to be overrun with overconfident, ideological warriors, who may read intelligence reports but do not believe or learn from them. Replete with the best degrees, and long pedigrees earned by slavish commitment to all the politically correct causes, there is a ruling class in this administration that always knows best, blames America, and cynically relies on national media to cover up for all the errors and omissions of socialism, globalism, and elitism.

It is all so depressing and alarming and predictable. Our president is barely able to read cue cards, and the vice president has no-clue cards.

This national shame and confusion run contrary to the way Americans responded to 9/11. We came together with a near-universal belief that those who attacked America needed to be brought to justice. We took pride in our country and honored those who protected us from terrorism. (Read more from “The Horrific Afghanistan Withdrawal Re-Opened Our Nation’s 9/11 Wounds” HERE)

Biden Marks 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Criticizing ‘Dark Forces’ in America Against ‘Peaceful Religion’ of Islam

By Breitbart. President Joe Biden marked the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by criticizing Americans for the anti-Muslim anger that occurred in the United States after the attacks took place.

“We also witnessed the dark forces of human nature. Fear and anger. Resentment and violence against Muslim-Americans — true and faithful followers of a peaceful religion,” Biden said in a prerecorded video published for the occasion.

The president said that the principle of “unity” in the country was endangered by the attacks but ultimately prevailed. . .

Biden released his pre-recorded video, as the White House confirmed Friday he had no plans to address the nation on the 20th anniversary of the attacks. (Read more from “Biden Marks 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Criticizing ‘Dark Forces’ in America Against ‘Peaceful Religion’ of Islam” HERE)

Where’s Joe? Biden Remains Hiding at Camp David as Afghanistan Collapses; Thousands of Americans Stranded

By Breitbart. President Joe Biden will remain hidden at his presidential retreat at Camp David through Monday, according to the White House, as the Taliban swiftly seized control of Afghanistan.

The president’s daily guidance for Monday indicated Biden would remain at Camp David for at least one more day, with no public events scheduled.

But a senior administration official indicated to reporters Sunday evening that Biden might address the country “in the next few days,” according to reports.

It remains unclear whether Biden will speak from Camp David or return to the White House to deliver his speech, the reports noted. He was previously scheduled to remain at Camp David until Wednesday.

Biden has not spoken publicly on Afghanistan since Tuesday after expressing optimism that the leaders of the Afghan government would rally to defend their country. (Read more from “Biden Remains Hiding at Camp David as Afghanistan Collapses” HERE)

US Government: ‘Thousands’ of Americans Stranded in Afghanistan

By Breitbart. The State Department and Department of Defense said in a statement Sunday that there are “thousands” of Americans stranded in Afghanistan after the Taliban declared victory over the U.S.-backed government earlier in the day.

“Tomorrow and over the coming days, we will be transferring out of the country thousands of American citizens who have been resident in Afghanistan, as well as locally employed staff of the U.S. mission in Kabul and their families and other particularly vulnerable Afghan nationals,” they said in the statement.

The Biden administration rushed in 3,000 forces over the weekend to evacuate Americans from Afghanistan, as the Taliban continued its rapid offensive across Afghanistan and headed towards the capital of Kabul.

On Saturday, Biden rushed in 1,000 more and then, on Sunday, an additional 1,000 — as the Taliban entered Kabul and moved into the presidential palace. (Read more from “US Government: ‘Thousands’ of Americans Stranded in Afghanistan” HERE)

DOJ Uses Scare Quotes to Threaten State Election Integrity Efforts

Joe Biden’s Department of Justice is using scare quotes in a new guidance that it has issued to threaten state election integrity efforts.

The guidance repeatedly refers to post-election “audits,” using the quotes to suggest that’s not what they really are.

And it lists a number of examples of illegal activities – although it does not connect those with the Arizona election audit that has been going on for some months already, or the other states that are considering them.

The recounts and reviews of election results from the 2020 presidential race were triggered by evidence that suggested fraud or manipulation. Multiple legacy media outlet fact-checkers have said there was absolutely no inappropriate behavior in the election.

But it’s not even contested that there were outside influences, that leftist Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook handed over some $350 million to mostly leftist elections officials to help them “run” the 2020 count. Further, multiple state officials arbitrarily changed state voting laws and procedures to accommodate COVID conditions, even though the Constitution limits those who can make those changes to state lawmakers.

3 CNN Employees Fired for Showing Up Unvaccinated

CNN fired three employees who came to the office unvaccinated, according to the network’s senior media reporter, Oliver Darcy.

CNN President Jeff Zucker sent a memo to office staff Thursday that said the network had discovered three employees who had been coming to the office unvaccinated, and terminated all three of them. The portion of the memo that was posted by Darcy did not disclose how staff discovered that the employees had not been vaccinated, but clarified that CNN has “a zero-tolerance policy on this.”

Zucker also said in the memo that the plan to return to the office Sept. 7 had been postponed to mid-October. (Read more from “3 CNN Employees Fired for Showing Up Unvaccinated” HERE)

COVID Super Spreaders: Maskless Democrats Who Fled Texas Test Positive for Virus; Hypocrite: Texas Dem Tweets About Making the Rest of Us Suffer With a Mask Mandate

By USA Today. Three Texas House Democrats have tested positive for the coronavirus in Washington, D.C., according to Texas House Democratic Caucus leadership.

They’re among nearly 60 lawmakers who fled the state last week to break quorum in the House, part of an effort to block the passage of a GOP-led elections bill. Most members are staying in the same hotel.

One member found out about their positive test result late Friday evening, but they did not have symptoms, caucus officials said. All House lawmakers were alerted and received a rapid test immediately after the member’s positive result.

Two additional members tested positive in a rapid test Saturday morning, and one has mild symptoms, the caucus said. . .

The three members are vaccinated. The caucus did not release their names. (Read more from “COVID Super Spreaders: Maskless Dems Who Fled Texas Test Positive for Virus” HERE)

Texas Democrat Who Fled to DC Tweets About Making the Rest of Us Suffer With a Mask Mandate

By Townhall. One of the Texan Democrats who traveled was Rep. Gene Wu (D-Houston), who, as Katie highlighted, has some pretty insufferable tweets.

In his one of his more recent tweets, Wu quipped he is going to ask to ask President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to institute a mask policy, as he mockingly responded to a tweet.

While this article was being written, the tweet Wu was responding to became unavailable, as the owner deleted the account. It was of Vice President Kamala Harris speaking to the members in an indoor room, while she and others were without masks. . .

Despite CDC guidelines and federal mandating all passengers, regardless of vaccination status wear a mask while at the airport, on the airplane, and using other methods of travel, Wu and his colleagues all appeared without masks on their charter bus and private plan to D.C.
