Ultimately, Americans have always chosen liberty over tyranny
Our subject line today comes from Dr. Ben Carson who wrote a piece this week that we link below.
In many ways, we feel that we are on the cusp of some startling shifts in thinking across, not only America, but the world. Frankly, it could go either way at this point. However, we remain optimistic and hopeful.
1- We told you that far leftist Trudeau was hiding from the Truckers! Each day more Canadians are getting involved in this protest and showing love and gratitude for the brave Truckers. Apparently, fighting for freedom is contagious!
Truckers Force The Canadian Prime Minister To Flee His House
QUOTE: One of the most important stories of the year has gone totally unreported by the corporate media: Truck drivers in Canada have created a “freedom convoy” to protest the vaccine mandates and finally arrived in the capital city of Ottawa. They have created a blockade at the center of the city and massive protests have taken place.
The sheer scale of these protests is unprecedented in Canadian history. By some counts, the number of trucks could be as high as 50,000 while the number of protesters supporting them might be more than 1 million.
Several British outlets are reporting that Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been forced to flee his official residence because of the protests. There are rumors that Trudeau may have even fled the country to go into hiding in the United States.
The truckers have vowed to stay until all the vaccine mandates are halted and the Prime Minister is ousted.
2- A judge in Pennsylvania has ruled that the use of mail-in ballots during the 2020 election was unconstitutional. The Pennsylvania constitution does not allow for the legislature to make this law. To add mail-in voting, the judge advised an amendment, voted on by the people. This is a small victory in the long war to achieve voter integrity. There are many battles being waged.
Illegal Pennsylvania Mail-In Voting Scheme That Had an Impact on 2020 Election Has Now Been Declared Unconstitutional
QUOTES: A Pennsylvania court Friday struck down Act 77, the 2019 law that among other changes established no-excuse mail-in voting in the state.
Commonwealth Court Judge Mary Hannah Leavitt concluded in her majority opinion Friday that Pennsylvania’s legislature did not have the constitutional authority to change the state’s strict absentee voting requirements.
Pennsylvania’s constitution requires votes to be cast in person, unless certain requirements are met, Leavitt wrote.
“No-excuse mail-in voting makes the exercise of the franchise more convenient and has been used four times in the history of Pennsylvania,” Leavitt explained.
“Approximately 1.38 million voters have expressed their interest in voting by mail permanently,” she added.
“If presented to the people, a constitutional amendment to end the … requirement of in-person voting is likely to be adopted. But a constitutional amendment must be presented to the people and adopted into our fundamental law before legislation authorizing no-excuse mail-in voting can ‘be placed upon our statute books.'”
3- It is often said that abortion is the cause that the left worships above all else. The last two years have revealed other tenets of their sick religion. Now we can add a zeal to censor and erase opinions different from their dogma. Take it from liberal Glenn Greenwald who has been censored by the left. In his long Substack piece he goes into depth on the Spotify issue. Censorship is not as evil as abortion but, both achieve the result of silencing humans.
The Pressure Campaign on Spotify to Remove Joe Rogan Reveals the Religion of Liberals: Censorship
QUOTE: All factions, at certain points, succumb to the impulse to censor. But for the Democratic Party’s liberal adherents, silencing their adversaries has become their primary project.
QUOTE: American liberals are obsessed with finding ways to silence and censor their adversaries. Every week, if not every day, they have new targets they want de-platformed, banned, silenced, and otherwise prevented from speaking or being heard (by “liberals,” I mean the term of self-description used by the dominant wing of the Democratic Party).
QUOTE: The emerging campaign to pressure Spotify to remove Joe Rogan from its platform is perhaps the most illustrative episode yet of both the dynamics at play and the desperation of liberals to ban anyone off-key. It was only a matter of time before this effort really galvanized in earnest. Rogan has simply become too influential, with too large of an audience of young people, for the liberal establishment to tolerate his continuing to act up.
QUOTE: In sum, censorship — once the province of the American Right during the hey day of the Moral Majority of the 1980s — now occurs in isolated instances in that faction. In modern-day American liberalism, however, censorship is a key tenet of their religion.
They simply cannot abide the idea that anyone who thinks differently or sees the world differently than they should be heard. That is why there is much more at stake in this campaign to have Rogan removed from Spotify than whether this extremely popular podcast host will continue to be heard there or on another platform.
If liberals succeed in pressuring Spotify to abandon their most valuable commodity, it will mean nobody is safe from their petty-tyrant tactics. But if they fail, it can embolden other platforms to similarly defy these bullying tactics, keeping our discourse a bit more free for just awhile longer.
4- We love this Governor because he pushes back and is unfailingly unafraid and unintimidated. He spends his political capital trying to help his citizens.
He calls out the federal government for all of the lies it has told us. He calls out the Biden Regime for denying sick people treatments.
‘You Look At That Data — Yikes, Yikes’: DeSantis Responds To FDA Data On Merck Pill
5- A frustrating aspect of life in the 2000s is that rarely are bad politicians held accountable for their horrible decisions and actions against the American people.
With that in mind, we will not forget those who have destroyed a generation and an economy with brainless mandates, lockdowns, masking, and vaccines.There is no way to be exonerated from these continued dictatorial efforts.
Finally Noticing Lockdowns Are Killing Kids Does Not Absolve The Left
QUOTE: It has been two years since the world first noticed people were getting sick and dying from a novel coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China. As the seriousness of the disease became more apparent, policymakers around the world struggled with how to respond.
Now it is becoming clear that most of the policies they chose, like all policy choices, were not consequence-free. Sadly, America’s school children appear to have borne the brunt of their choices.
Politico and other outlets have reported on the “disaster” of learning loss resulting from pandemic school closures. Unfortunately, this learning loss is concentrated in minority communities that could least afford to suffer these consequences — as I, my rocket-scientist brother, and countless others can attest, education is the key to escaping poverty.
QUOTE: I have been warning the American public about these devastating effects on our children for the better part of two years now. Early in the pandemic, it was obvious to anyone who actually sat down and looked at the data, rather than acting on fear and propaganda, that children were not at risk from this virus nearly to the degree that adults were, never mind older adults with co-morbidities, who are overwhelmingly the victims of the disease.
QUOTE: Despite the incredible costs these policy makers and pundits imposed on our children, all is not lost. The American people appear to be realizing, slowly, that bureaucrats act in the interests of bureaucrats, not the public, and that unions act in the interests of unions, not the public.
The mass exodus from states that continue to choose restriction over freedom is happening for a reason. The mass exodus from public schools is happening for a reason. Ultimately, Americans always choose liberty over tyranny.

Yes, there is disturbing news coming at us.
However, for a few minutes spend some time with THE GOOD NEWS!
1- We are always reminding you that there are a lot of people who are working on various elections issues in different states. However, it is almost impossible to find ANY reporting on issues involving voting integrity.
We mentioned earlier this week the vote in Wisconsin to decertify the electors in the 2020 election. Well, it was not quite the way it was reported due to a complicated legislative process. In this segment of The War Room you will hear Wisconsin State Representative Timothy Ramthun explain what happened and what is going to happen in Wisconsin.
You will also hear from two impressive candidates, Kari Lake, candidate for Governor of Arizona and Kelly Tshibaka candidate for US Senate in Alaska.
Episode 1,595 – Wisconsin Biden Decertification; Invasion Of Southern Border; Fight In Alaska
2- Two other countries snap out of it!
Denmark intends to lift all coronavirus restrictions
The Danish government intends to lift all restrictions imposed in connection with the pandemic from January 31, TASS reports with reference to Jyllands-Posten.
According to her sources, Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen plans to announce the decision at a press conference on Wednesday. According to the publication, the head of the cabinet will also announce that from February 5, COVID-19 will no longer be classified as diseases that are critically dangerous to the public. These government decisions were made on the basis of the recommendations of a special epidemiological commission, the newspaper writes.
Sweden decides against recommending COVID vaccines for kids aged 5-12
QUOTE: Sweden has decided against recommending COVID vaccines for kids aged 5-11, the Health Agency said on Thursday, arguing that the benefits did not outweigh the risks.
“With the knowledge we have today, with a low risk for serious disease for kids, we don’t see any clear benefit with vaccinating them,” Health Agency official Britta Bjorkholm told a news conference.
3- Canadian children are calling the truckers who are in the convoy protesting the vax mandate. Listen to the sweet messages from young people who have learned a lesson about freedom. This is a huge protest that is being ignored by Fake News. Thousands of Canadians are lining the highways, bridges and roadways as the Truck Convoy passes by with signs and cheers of support.
God Bless Truckers!
Meanwhile, as the truckers move closer to him, this guy is hiding.
Trudeau isolates after being exposed to someone with COVID
QUOTE: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is isolating at home after learning he was exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19
4- SOME in the Fake News are coming to the conclusions many of us have had for a year. A year ago, questioning masking children at school got you tossed off Twitter and Facebook. Now, it is being said in The Atlantic!
The three doctors who wrote this article do not have issues with the vaccine for children. We disagree and deeply hold that the vax is unnecessary and dangerous for everyone and most certainly for children. But we will take this one step at a time as people awaken from their misinformation. If we can unmask our children, that would be a great victory.
The Case Against Masks at School
QUOTE: Districts should rethink imposing on millions of children an intervention that provides little discernible benefit.
To justify mask requirements in school at this point, health officials should be able to muster solid evidence from randomized trials of masking in children. To date, however, only two randomized trials have measured the impact of masks on COVID transmission.
The first was conducted in Denmark in the spring of 2020 and found no significant effect of masks on reducing COVID-19 transmission. The second is a much-covered study conducted in Bangladesh that reported that surgical masks (but not cloth) were modestly effective at reducing rates of symptomatic infection. However, neither of these studies included children, let alone vaccinated children.
Other studies—not randomized trials—have looked at the effects of masks in schools, and their results do not support pervasive, endless masking at school.
5- Also in The Atlantic is this excellent piece by Mary Katherine Ham on how she lives a life unafraid and how she is raising her children without fear.
Kids Shouldn’t Have to Be ‘Resilient’
QUOTE: This “child sacrifice” form of debate doesn’t serve children or parents. Adults should do our best to make rational calls for our kids, to weigh costs and benefits, to pass the baton from the amygdala to the neocortex. If I’d chosen never to let my kids near a bike, I’m sure my friends and family would have understood and respected my decision. But that would have been an irrational reading of the risk, and deeply unfair to my kids.
“Kids are resilient” has been a refrain of the pandemic, used to justify the removal of regular school, birthday parties, and talking with friends at lunch. But it’s not a kid’s job to be resilient. It’s a parent’s job to be resilient for them, to spare them from our fears and worries. The longer we abdicate, the more damage we will do.
6- Yes, we WILL continue to nag you to take charge of your health and boost your immunity. And go outside and get some sun!!!
A Daily Vitamin D Supplement Can Help Prevent Autoimmune Disease, Huge Study Shows
A daily vitamin D supplement could reduce the rate of autoimmune disease by 22 percent – at least in the over-50s, a new study published this week has shown.
“We know vitamin D does all kinds of wonderful things for the immune system in animal studies,” senior author Karen Costenbader told New Scientist. “But we have never proven before that giving vitamin D can prevent autoimmune disease.”
In a huge, long-term randomized and double-blind trial – pretty much the gold standard – researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital set out to investigate two potential supplements’ ability to prevent autoimmune disease: vitamin D, and omega 3 fatty acids. Nearly 26,000 participants, all above the age of 50, were recruited from across the US and randomly assigned one of four daily regimens: either one vitamin D and one placebo supplement, one omega 3 and one placebo supplement, one vitamin D and one omega 3 supplement, or two placebo supplements.
