1- This podcast will teach you more history about Cuba and Hong Kong than you have ever been taught. Megyn Kelly gives these two gentlemen ample time to lay out what has happened in these two counties. You will recognize many similarities to where the United States is at this moment.
Listen on Apple Podcasts:
Megyn Kelly is joined by Antonio Garcia-Martinez, author and entrepreneur whose family came from Cuba, and Samuel Chu, Managing Director of the Hong Kong Democracy Council, to talk about what’s happening now in Cuba and Hong Kong with citizens fighting back against governments, as well as what’s behind the protests in Cuba today, the extraordinary way Cuba regulates the internet, how the Democrats and Republicans approach Cuba today, China’s crackdown of Hong Kong in the 1980s, what the world can do to help Hong Kong, what’s next for Hong Kong, and more.
2- Please support and pray for America’s Frontline Doctors.
They are bravely fighting for us against the rest of the medical community and the government.
America’s Frontline Doctors, a nonprofit, filed a motion on July 19 seeking immediate injunctive relief to stop the emergency use authorization (EUA) of COVID-19 vaccines for three groups of Americans: anyone under the age of 18, anyone who has recovered from COVID-19, and those who haven’t given informed consent as defined by federal law.
The motion was filed against Xavier Becerra, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and other defendants in a federal district court in the Northern District of Alabama.
“The emergency declaration and its multiple renewals are illegal,” the complaint (pdf) alleges.
3- THIS is what a political leader looks and sounds like. Since we have so few examples of that, we wanted you to see this one!
DeSantis Rejects Federal Mask Guidance for Children: ‘Not Doing That in Florida’
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Florida won’t implement mask mandates on public school children amid the COVID-19 pandemic, coming after federal health officials have suggested that unvaccinated kids and school staff should wear masks while in class.
“There’s been talk about potentially people advocating at the federal level, imposing compulsory masks on kids,” DeSantis said during a bill signing event in Fort Pierce on Thursday. “We’re not doing that in Florida, OK? We need our kids to breathe.”
“Parents obviously can equip their kids to go to school however they want, but there shouldn’t be any coercive mandates on our schools,” he said, adding that masks are “terribly” uncomfortable for kids.
4- Good work ignoring these propaganda filled fake news show!
“‘Today’ averaged 2.9 million viewers during the week of July 12-16 to mark the first time NBC News’ flagship program failed to surpass the three-million viewer threshold since at least 1991,” Fox News reported.
An industry insider with “knowledge of the show’s inner workings” told Fox, “It’s a total fiasco. The show has lost its role [as a] cultural touchstone. There are obviously bigger industry trends at play, but the show is a non-factor.”
5- ZERO. ZIP. NADA.
Rather than acknowledge science, Dr. Makary says the CDC continues to use ‘flimsy evidence’ to push the COVID vaccine upon children.
A team of Johns Hopkins researchers recently reported that when studying a group of about 48,000 children, they found zero COVID deaths among healthy kids, but the Centers for Disease Control doesn’t care.
Makary says the CDC’s untrustworthy reporting doesn’t stop there. He adds that, “The CDC may also be under[-]capturing data on vaccine complications.” The CDC bases its risk-benefit analysis for vaccinating all children on complication rates from the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System database (Vaers). However, Makary argues that this database is composed of self-reported, raw data that “is unverified and likely underreports adverse events.”
6- Oh look. The Senate Republicans appear to be alive.
Senate Republicans Block Effort To Advance Biden Infrastructure Plan
Senate Republicans have blocked an effort to advance the Democrats’ infrastructure plan on Wednesday afternoon, producing a massive setback for the Biden administration’s efforts to go ahead with a bill expected to cost roughly $3.5 trillion ($4.1 trillion with a $600 billion bipartisan plan) to fund the Build Back Better agenda.
The Republicans blocked Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s attempt to move forward on a proposal, arguing that the party could not advance a plan that is still being negotiated.
It was blocked 49 to 51, with Schumer changing his vote to “no” for procedural reasons so he could bring the bill back up, as reported by The Recount.
According to Politico, the block amounted to a setback to Biden’s agenda, although members of both parties expect at least one more attempt in the coming days.
7- More of this, please!
Eric Clapton won’t play venues that require proof of vaccination in the wake of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement clubgoers must present COVID passes
Eric Clapton will not perform at venues that require proof of vaccination.
‘Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021, I feel honor bound to make an announcement of my own,’ Clapton said via statement posted onto architect, film producer and anti-vaxxer Robin Monotti Graziadei’s Telegram account.
‘I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present,’ the musician said. ‘Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel the show.’
8- There was one country that actually used their common sense and now have proved that lock downs are not the way to go.
Alone among the advanced countries of the world, Sweden followed the sensible policy for dealing with a highly transmissible virus with a 99%+ survival rate, dangerous mostly to easily identifiable groups – the elderly and those with co-morbidities. It allowed the population at minimal risk to carry on life as usual, and restricted movements and otherwise protected only those at elevated risk. As the rest of the advanced world locked down, life for almost all Swedes went on as normal.
The result: herd immunity spread. Sweden’s economy avoided the catastrophic harm inflicted elsewhere.
And now we see that Sweden’s approach (which, incidentally, is how all previous pandemics have been handled) has been vindicated.
9- Frankly, there is very little with regards to Covid-CCP that we have been told that is the truth. Here is another one.
The Biden administration, stung by missing its vaccine targets and the rising COVID-19 cases, has decided to blame Republicans. That’s not surprising. But it’s traditionally Democratic groups – minorities and the young – who aren’t getting vaccinated, and it’s leftists who are the most influential anti-vaxxers on the planet.
As Politico reported recently, “the Biden administration is casting conservative opponents of its COVID-19 vaccine campaign as dangerous and extreme.”
The administration points to state immunization rates as proof that anti-vaxxers on the right are to blame for the problem. “State vaccine rates fall along red, blue divide,” is how The Hill reported it.
But wait a minute. The states with low vaccination rates also tend to have larger minority populations. And blacks are the least likely racial or ethnic group to have been vaccinated, with Hispanics the second least likely, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.
10- Keep pushing back on government schools. Stand up for your kids!
A top official with the Virginia Parent Teacher Association has resigned after seemingly wishing death to parents who oppose the teaching of critical race theory and other progressive ideas.
Michelle Leete, the vice president of training for the Virginia PTA, had said “let them die” at a rally held last Thursday in Fairfax County in response to protesters opposed to CRT and other progressive proposals.
There are a lot of plates spinning. There is a lot happening by many different people. Events are moving quickly. Stay informed. Share information. Pray for our country and for those people in the world also fighting communism.

P.S. Did you miss a newsletter or wish to revisit one? All of our newsletters are now archived HERE.
According to our Constitution, everyone is entitled to a defense when all the power and might of the United States is brought to bear against an individual. It’s a fundamental right to counsel long recognized by the Supreme Court.
Defending the Republic is stepping up to assist as much as we can with coordination, resources, and consultation with the lawyers who are defending those still accused and those still incarcerated—and in many cases, likely wrongly accused of any offense regarding their presence at, near or in the Capitol Building on January 6.
First, I must note bald-faced lies spread about me. I had nothing to do with the events at the Capitol that day. I was not in Washington. I encouraged anyone who would listen—and many who did not—to leave Washington, to stay out of Washington, and not participate in any way.
January 6 was too late for people to show their disgust, in Washington DC, with the obvious fraud in the past election. I fully expected a “false flag” operation created by someone on the left. It was a trap for Trump supporters.
I have never encouraged violence. I abhor it. Anyone who accuses me with “having blood on my hands” or otherwise having any role in January 6 is lying and defaming me.
Second, those who actually broke into the Capitol, who destroyed property or stole property, who attacked an officer, should be held accountable. That said—so should all who burned buildings, looted, rioted, assaulted police, and took over parts of cities, beat people and committed countless other atrocities much of the last year of the Trump administration.
Unfortunately, with the help of Kamala Harris and other now-obvious communists, most of those who destroyed our cities and hundreds of millions of dollars of property and livelihoods of others, were released upon booking.
Ironically, Mr. Biden trespassed on the Capitol when he was 21. He was arrested and released. Even more ironically, I can remember being able to walk freely in and out of the Capitol and to watch important votes and proceedings from the gallery. After all, it is the “people’s house.”
Now, at least 80 people are still in custody in DC. They and more than 400 others were hunted down by massive displays of “law enforcement”, and arrested at gunpoint in front of their families, and jailed for whatever the government says they did at the Capitol.
Of the hundreds now who have been arrested, many were held for days without being allowed to shower, speak to a lawyer or anyone, and many more have been held in solitary confinement for days, weeks, and now months.
They are our fellow citizens entitled to a defense and humane treatment, yet they have been treated worse than international terrorists and illegal aliens.
Previously, the ACLU and the UN have said solitary confinement is torture. It can drive a sane man insane in twenty-four hours. Yet this is how our government is now treating people who succumbed to an operation we now know was created, incited and staffed by our FBI.
The January 6 defendants have been abused to shut them up, to “teach everyone a lesson,” to demonstrate the consolidation of the evil and power now apparent in our government. Those still in custody are being held and abused to coerce them into pleading guilty to crimes they may not have committed and to avoid the exposure the government has of its own misconduct in creating and inciting the event.
I just learned last week that now those held are not being allowed to shave, get a haircut or clip their finger or toe nails unless they submit to the Covid vaccine which—by the CDC’s own numbers—has killed tens of thousands of people and caused hundreds of thousands of others to develop numerous problems.
That is not constitutional in the country I grew up in. It is not constitutional now.
Americans are facing the unprecedented consolidation of power in the hands of totalitarian globalists – corrupt dictators – throughout our government institutions.
This Republic was divined by God. We have unalienable individual rights endowed by Him. The government is lying to us at every turn, and it’s using the media to push its lies. God loves truth, and He hates deceit. We must return to God and work to restore truth, justice, and righteousness with all that we do. We must stand together, make our voices heard civilly, and advocate for all that we know is right.
There is nothing right about the way our fellow citizens – even some who overstepped their bounds – are being treated in federal confinement in Washington DC.
Defending the Republic will work to correct this injustice on behalf of all of us.
