Lots of Good Stuff From Sidney Powell and Defending the Republic

Sidney Powell Statement on January 6 Committee Subpoena

Ms. Powell has received the January 6 Committee’s subpoena, and she looks forward to providing the Committee with significant evidence in support of the election fraud statements and claims she presented on behalf of the electors and clients she represented. Those claims are supported by expert reports and affidavits of witnesses that no court took the time to hear. Ms. Powell is a practicing lawyer, and she will comply to the full extent required by law and legal ethics.


Ms. Powell looks forward to appearing before the Committee to answer questions, walk through the evidence, and present a full picture of the fraud and other misconduct that took place during the 2020 Election, including the myriad of election fraud allegations only now being examined by state officials in Georgia, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

-Statement on behalf of Sidney Powell–From Howard Kleinhendler, Counsel for Sidney Powell


Regardless of who wins any election, to have confidence in the outcome, we must continue to demand (1) real paper ballots, (2) hand counted in a bipartisan transparent process, and (3) citizen voter ID.

To think about…

Dear Patriots,Many are hibernating as cold January weather swipes through the country, so we offer you a few longer pieces for contemplation. ### 1- It is refreshing and hopeful to read about the actions of the newly sworn-in Governor of Virginia. We will be watching his progress and we will pray he remains resolute. (Red State)VA Governor Glenn Youngkin Overturns Mandates and Takes on Critical Race Theory Immediately Upon Taking OfficeQUOTE:Newly-minted Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin started his first day in office with a bang that could reverberate across the nation as a signal to other governors on the fence between the people and the donor class.Signing a slate of executive orders, Youngkin fulfilled some of the biggest promises he made to voters during his groundbreaking gubernatorial run. The orders include:• Ending the use of Critical Race Theory in public education• Investigating “wrongdoing” in Loudon County• Opening the economy for all business• Withdrawing from previous “green energy” initiatives that have been harmful to Virginia’s economy and bureaucracy• Slashing “job-killing” regulations• Allowing parents and students to opt out of school mask mandates• Rescinding vaccine mandates for all state employeesYoungkin also pledged to “restore integrity and confidence” in the state Parole Board, a move bolstered by the appointment of new Attorney General Jason Miyares, who has already announced he will begin the prosecution of criminal activities in districts in which Soros-backed District Attorneys refuse. There are also provisions for fighting human trafficking and antisemitism. Youngkin signed the orders immediately after his Saturday, January 15th inauguration.____________________2- We are thrilled to see that there are a few brave college students who have woken from their stupor of fear and indoctrination to tell their school to stop forcing experimental shots on them. Read this whole letter and their thoughtful, fact-filled arguments. We pray this spreads to other college-aged Americans. (The Chicago Thinker)Editorial: UChicago Must End Its Booster Mandate—We Are Not Lab RatsQUOTE:Per the University of Chicago’s newly announced booster mandate, all students and employees must obtain a booster shot by January 24. Those who do not comply will be barred from campus and restricted from attending in-person classes, among other activities. This booster mandate is demonstrably unsafe, ineffective, unnecessary, inconsistent, and unethical. We’ve struggled beneath UChicago’s draconian COVID decrees for years, but the university’s booster mandate reaches a new height of absurdity. UChicago claims to rely upon “expert” opinion in structuring its COVID regime. Yet, even advisory committees at the FDA and CDC initially declined to recommend the COVID booster for those under the age of 65. QUOTE:Mandates for the COVID vaccine and booster are unnecessary to protect the health of the UChicago community.COVID has a survival rate of over 99.87% for individuals under the age of 65. According to the CDC, only 5% of “COVID deaths” are solely attributable to COVID as the cause. The other 95% of “COVID deaths” involve, on average, almost 4 additional conditions (comorbidities) or causes per death. We will not play pretend by accepting our university’s gross exaggerations of the public health risks of catching and transmitting COVID. We will not live in fear.____________________3- It is not every day we can point to a current elected Senator and say they have consistently done well. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) is one a very few.  (The Federalist)9 Times Ron Johnson Triggered The Left — And Turned Out To Be RightQUOTE:Sen. Ron Johnson is not planning his Senate retirement anytime soon. The Wisconsin lawmaker is running for reelection, he announced this week, at which the corrupt media predictably came out, guns blazing.CNN’s Chris Cillizza, for instance, announced that the “Senate’s leading conspiracy theorist is running for another term,” and The Nation ran an article calling him an “off-the-deep-end” senator.But while attention-seeking pundits attack Johnson for opinions that don’t conform to the left-wing narrative (opinions held among many Americans outside the Beltway, by the way), his opinions are often proved to be exactly right. There’s quite a long list of “Ron John” statements and actions that, after sending the media into a tizzy and Big Tech giants into a censorship spree, have held up quite well over time. ___________________4- If there was any doubt that Democrats lay ground work for cheating long before the elections, this story will help dispel all doubt. (Breitbart)Democrats Block Plan to Remove Foreign Nationals from Voter RollsQUOTE:House Democrats this week blocked a plan that would have required states to remove foreign nationals from voter rolls.On Wednesday, Democrats voted down an amendment by Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) that would have kicked likely hundreds, and potentially thousands, of foreign nationals off state voter rolls.The amendment would have been tacked onto the Democrats’ “Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act” which seeks to federalize all local and state elections with prohibitions on requiring photo identification when voting by mail and weakens current requirements that mandate states routinely clean their voter rolls.All of this could be prevented if states were actually maintaining accurate voter rolls, which has been required by federal law for nearly 30 years. Whether intentional or not, we know this is happening, it’s undermining the integrity of our elections. This amendment would simply ensure those who are noncitizens, who do not have the right to vote in federal elections, are removed from states’ voter rolls. This is especially critical as my friends on the other side of the aisle push for a federal takeover of elections. House Democrats last blocked the amendment in December 2021.____________________5- The Great Shift. We may be in the middle of the largest realignment of the states in our lifetimes. Thankfully, we still have the freedom to move to places that maintain freedom for it’s citizens. (Ben Shaprio)The Great Re-sorting Is HereQUOTE:Americans have been fleeing the most liberal states in mass numbers. Those numbers are about to increase even more.The only region of the country to gain population was the South, which now holds 38.3% of the total population of the country—and which picked up 657,682 Americans migrating from different areas. The Northeast is now the least populous region in the United States, and saw a net population decrease of 365,795 residents. All net increase in population in the West was due to births and international migration, not domestic moves.It’s not just individuals—it’s companies. Facebook’s parent company, Meta, just signed the largest-ever lease in downtown Austin for floors 34 through 66 of the tallest tower in the city. Elon Musk has relocated his company headquarters to Texas. My own Daily Wire relocated in 2020 from California to Nashville, Tennessee.In other words, red state governance is a magnet; blue state governance is a disaster. Yet blue states cannot change course. They cannot simply jettison their adherence to failed ideas like single-payer health care or voting for illegal immigrants. To do so would be to acknowledge error. And so instead, they are banking on unearned moral superiority—virtue signaling—to fill the gap where good governance should be.____________________6- This is a thoughtful and creative analysis of the current state of affairs. It also outlines why we must wrest power from our present mediocre government and bring back an intellectually vibrant America. (Jacob Fraden)Mediocrity in powerQUOTE:Every nation has its fair share of people with no useful abilities, yet harboring considerable ambition and an insurmountable craving for la dolce vita. The longing is there, but with no means for its realization. So, what are they to do? Sooner or later the mediocre find a workable solution: they go into politics.A sufficiently high position in a government structure that doesn’t require any special abilities or talents gives a nearly assured opportunity to receive lucrative benefits, including money, respect, and influence. There is a famous saying: “Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach.” There is a corollary: Those who can’t teach, govern.This is how the selection process works: mediocrities float to the top. Thus, government agencies accumulate a number of bureaucratic politicians for whom the main goal in life is to hold on to their positions and, if possible, move up the career ladder. The good of the country and its people becomes secondary and intrusive. Many professional bureaucrats possess just one talent: seizing and holding onto power.QUOTE:Over the past half-century, our political system has been transforming into a form of governance that I would call “dexiosocracy,” which in Greek means “the rule of the mediocre.” Consequently, the country is heading toward the abyss. The mediocrities have seized power, and we are reaping the rewards.     ### As always, we thank you for your support and attention.  We ask that you share this information as it is one of our best weapons. The more people who have the truth the harder it becomes to gain more power over us.

Good News Friday

Dear Patriots,

A bad week for the left, is a GREAT week for LIBERTY!

It has been a bad week for the Biden Regime. The Biden economic news on inflation is heartbreaking with 7% increase in costs. Biden polling numbers are historically low. Biden gave an ill-received speech in Atlanta about “voting rights”  that even the Democrats in Georgia refused to attend.

The next day Democrat Senators told everyone they would not support the end of the filibuster, dashing hopes that the disastrous voting bill could pass. Covid-CCP cases are soaring.

AND, The Supreme Court blocked the use of OSHA to enforce the Biden vax mandates on companies with more than 100 employees.

Defending The Republic is litigating numerous cases against the government and the unconstitutional mandates.



Please watch this interview with Sidney Powell on Frank Speech TV from Wednesday night. It is a summary of where we are and what Defending The Republic is currently working on.


1- Biden’s overall approval rating in the last seven Quinnipiac polls: 49%, 46%, 42%, 38%, 37%, 36%, 33%.

While his overall approval is historically low, the details are even worse. 

Only 28 percent of Hispanics approve of the job Biden is doing as president. 61 percent of Hispanics disapprove of Biden’s handling of the economy with 59 percent of Hispanics saying they disapprove of Biden’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. 


New Poll Has Biden Circling the Drain and Going Down Fast

QUOTE: The new Quinnipiac poll definitely has Biden circling the drain and going down fast.  He’s in a death spiral across all categories and all groups.

Biden’s approval rating has cratered to 33 percent, with 53 percent disapproving. In November, it was 36 percent approval, so it’s still continuing to go down. It’s worse among independents at 24 percent and among Hispanics, it’s only 28 percent. Those are two numbers that Biden has to cringe at when he looks at them. Without them, Democrats are up a creek without a paddle. But Biden is down even with Democrats. He’s dropped 12 approval points with Democrats since November, from 87 to 75. I’m inclined to think that’s progressive flight since he hasn’t been able to deliver on the free stuff that they want including the Build Back Better bill.


2- Finally, we are getting some buy-in to immunity.

(Trending Politics)  

A Return To Sanity — NCAA To Allow Those W/ COVID “Herd Immunity” To Participate In Sporting Activities

QUOTE: In a sign of sanity returning in the U.S., but also for economic reasons, The NCAA announced this week that athletes who had the COVID do not have to get vaccinated and can participate in sporting activities.

These athletes will be able to participate for 90 days after coming down with COVID.

The ninety days conveniently gets them past the NCAA basketball tournament, “March Madness”, where they make tens of millions of dollars for the association and for the participating colleges to help fund their programs.


3- More and more parents are getting involved in school issues for ever growing lists of reasons.

(The Federalist) 

Wisconsin Parents Join Crusade To Take Kids Back From Leftist Schools

QUOTE:  The banquet hall buzzed with impassioned chatter as parents, friends, first-time school board candidates, and other locals congregated for a Saturday morning town hall that felt more like a strategy session. After two major public school districts, Milwaukee and Madison, shut down yet again and blamed COVID, parents were fired up.

Talk of critical race theory, leftist administrators, mask mandates, and school shutdowns hummed through conversations with the kind of first-hand animation that could propel once-complacent Wisconsin parents into a movement of activists capable of unleashing an unquenchable red wave in the Dairy State. They saw what happened in Virginia, and now they want to bring it home.

Former Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, who’s now running to unseat Democrat Gov. Tony Evers in November, organized the event. “We need more parent activists. This is that important,” Kleefisch said while moderating a panel of concerned moms-turned-activists.


4- The Democrats cheated in Wisconsin in 2021. This week, we finally got a ruling on the illegal use of absentee drop boxes. 

This is a massive ruling and has implications not just in Wisconsin, but in many states that illegally slipped in the use of ballot boxes to collect absentee ballots. 

(Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty) 

Waukesha, Wisconsin Judge Rules Absentee Ballot Drop Boxes, Ballot Harvesting Illegal Under State Law
QUOTE: Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren issued a summary judgment decision, in court, that absentee ballot drop boxes and ballot harvesting are not permitted in state law. Judge Bohren also ruled that the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) guidance documents on absentee ballot drop boxes, issued in 2020, should have gone through the rules process.

The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) filed a lawsuit on behalf of two Waukesha County voters in June 2021 challenging the legal status of absentee ballot drop boxes after WEC issued unlawful guidance to clerks, in 2020, encouraging the use of absentee ballot drop boxes, and telling voters that anyone else can return their ballot for them.

 Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren issued a decision, in court, that WEC’s guidance on absentee ballot drop boxes should have been adopted through the rulemaking process in Chapter 227. Further, Judge Bohren made clear that state law provides just two legal methods to cast an absentee ballot: through the mail or in-person at a clerk’s office. The ruling means unstaffed absentee ballot drop boxes and ballot harvesting are not legal methods to cast absentee ballots.


5- A few weeks ago we sent you this Tool Kit for staying healthy in conjunction with Dr. Bradley Meyer and the Defending the Republic documentary – “Doctor’s Orders”

The documentary has been watched over 265,000 times. We have received a lot of feedback on the Tool Kit and are offering it here again.

These are supplements you need to be taking daily and have on hand if you get ill. More than likely, there is NO ONE who will give you this guidance. When you get Covid-CCP, you are on your own. 


Life is moving fast so…

Hold Fast,

Defending The Republic


The tide is turning

Dear Patriots,

We have been talking about the ramifications of Covid-CCP and the vaccine for this past year as we knew this was a massive effort to remove American citizens from their God-given rights and freedoms.

We have used our resources to help many people fight the legal battles that have arisen.

Often we felt we were yelling into the wind, but it was important to pass on to you better and different information regarding Covid-CCP.

It seems that many more Americans are finally coming to the realizations we have been sharing. We remain hopeful that this is trend that will continue. 

This is where you become important!  Please share information on this subject.


1- We will NOT backdown at Defending The Republic!

Defending the Republic has filed a lawsuit against the Biden Administration – including President Biden himself – on behalf of workers who are …

… forced to choose between their jobs and the jab because of the unlawful federal contractor COVID-19 vaccine mandate. The federal contractor vaccine mandate is part of a larger and wholly unlawful effort by the Biden Administration to expand the scope of federal power to reach all Americans. 

Making matters worse, the federal contractor requires workers to take experimental and unapproved vaccines. The only “approved” COVID-19 vaccine is Pfizer’s Comirnaty, which is unavailable according to the latest government reports. To be in compliance with this mandate, workers must receive vaccines that are “authorized” based on limited safety and efficacy data. As we have already seen, these vaccines are historically dangerous, causing serious health consequences such asmyocarditis, pericarditis, and even death.

American workers deserve better and we will be there to fight for their right to decline federally mandated injections. 


2- Are we, at last, reaching “Herd Intelligence” ?


Now 68% of Americans say the economy is their biggest concern

• A newly released poll shows 68% of Americans’ top concerns going into the 2022 midterms are driven by economic woes
• Only 37% of respondents think the coronavirus pandemic is a priority compared to 53% who felt that way in the poll taken last year
• Despite massive COVID case spikes in December, Americans still felt the priority for government in 2022 should be on the economy

Concerns over the economy are overshadowing the pandemic as a whopping 68 per cent of Americans name financial and economic worries as a main issue heading into the midterm elections.


3- There is a lot of information at the link about the vaccine. Follow the science and you will see how we have been lied to for two years.

(Steve Kirsch- Substack) 

New big data study of 145 countries show COVID vaccines makes things worse (cases and deaths)

QUOTE: This study is yet another independent analysis that is difficult to refute: we have been misled by the CDC, FDA, and NIH.

The next time you see you county health officer, President Biden, or Boris Johnson why not ask them if they can find a mistake in this study by Kyle A. Beattie entitled Worldwide Bayesian Causal Impact Analysis of Vaccine Administration on Deaths and Cases Associated with COVID-19: A BigData Analysis of 145 Countries.

The study found that the COVID vaccines cause more COVID cases per million (+38% in US) and more deaths per million associated with COVID (+31% in US).

These results should encourage local policy makers to make policy decisions based on data, not narrative, and based on local conditions, not global or national mandates. These results should also encourage policy makers to begin looking for other avenues out of the pandemic aside from mass vaccination campaigns.

In other words, we were lied to.

The vaccines are making this worse, not better. This is why we are not getting ourselves out of the hole. 

This is hardly the first study to reach those conclusions. These studies, all done independently, found the same thing—the more you vaccinate, the worse things get.


4- We have talked many times about the lack of treatment for the virus. It is a subject that is gaining more traction. Demand early treatment from your health care provider.

(Brian C Joondeph, MD) 

Early Outpatient COVID Treatment – Why is There Still no Plan?

QUOTE:  For most infections, early treatment is imperative to prevent late complications. Gangrene infection in the toe must be treated aggressively to prevent losing not only the toe, but also a foot or leg if the infection is inadequately treated and spreads.

Those with cardiovascular disease are treated with statins and blood thinners as outpatients to prevent more serious disease and subsequent hospital care for stroke and heart attack with a much higher probability of disability or death.

COVID has been with us for almost two years and yet there are still not officially and medical establishment endorsed outpatient treatment protocols to keep infected individuals out of hospitals, which is where more serious problems begin, from secondary hospital infections, ventilators, and ultimately death.

What we are doing is the same thing over and over again, expecting different results, when reality says otherwise. What’s that the definition of?

As America approaches 1 million COVID deaths, we should by now be throwing the kitchen sink at this virus – vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, antivirals, and the cheap off-label zinc ionophores and supplements, that each play a role in keeping Americans from getting sick and dying. It should not be an either/or option but a thoughtful use of everything available. Patients kept out of the hospital live, many of those entering the hospital are damaged or die.

Yet here we are, almost two years into this pandemic, with a dozen claims by President Biden to “shut down the virus” only to set new daily case records last week, with a gaping hole in this important phase of COVID management. How will history judge this omission?


5- Do not comply. We have been such good citizens through all of this, but the time has passed to comply with more mandates and edicts from so called “experts”.


Airline pilot Latane Campbell interview: A pilot’s view of COVID policies

QUOTE: Latane Campell is a pilot for a major airline. In this video he shares his perspective on the vaccine, mandates, masking, and how this is going to end. He points out that 80% of his fellow pilots will refuse to take the booster. They are fed up with the ridiculous mandates from the CDC. In the cockpit, they remove their masks because 1) they need to maximize their oxygen and 2) because they need to talk to each other and to the ground. Virtually all pilots realize that masks are just political theater.


6- This inexpensive drug is effective at ALL stages of Covid-CCP. Read and know about this research. It may save the life of someone you love, IF you can get a doctor to use it. Advocate for your health!

(The Epoch Times) 

More Good News on Ivermectin

QUOTE: When it comes to the treatment of COVID-19, many Western nations have been hobbled by the politicization of medicine. Throughout 2020, media and many public health experts warned against the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), despite the fact that many practicing doctors were praising its ability to save patients. Most have been silenced through online censorship. Some even lost their jobs for the “sin” of publicly sharing their successes with the drug.

Another decades-old antiparasitic drug that may be even more useful than HCQ is ivermectin. Like HCQ, ivermectin is on the World Health Organization’s list of essential drugs, but its benefits are also being ignored by public health officials and buried by mainstream media.

Ivermectin Useful in All Stages of COVID

What makes ivermectin particularly useful in COVID-19 is the fact that it works both in the initial viral phase of the illness, when antivirals are required, as well as the inflammatory stage, when the viral load drops off and anti-inflammatories become necessary.

According to Dr. Surya Kant, a medical doctor in India who has written a white paper on ivermectin, the drug reduces replication of the SARS-CoV-2 virus by several thousand times. Kant’s paper led several Indian provinces to start using ivermectin, both as a prophylactic and as treatment for COVID-19 in the summer of 2020.


7- These two Tweets are an example of how the Left has flipped and flopped. We have NO idea what the government is now injecting into the military. There is NO approved vaccine in the United States.


8- What in the world is the CEO of Pfizer telling us ?

(Alex Berenson) 

If you are a vaccine company executive, it’s time to slam the brakes

QUOTE: Pfizer’s CEO Albert Bourla sees the dangers ahead, as his very carefully worded interview (worthy of close review) with CNBC yesterday shows.

Here’s what Albert Bourla, Pfizer’s chief executive officer, said on Monday in an interview on CNBC:

The hope is that we will achieve something that will have way, way better protection, particularly against infections because the protection against the hospitalizations and the severe disease, it is, it is reasonable right now, with the current vaccines as long as you are having let’s say the third dose.

Read those words very carefully.Protection against “severe disease” is “reasonable right now” for people who have taken a “third dose” of Pfizer’s vaccine.

Put aside the fact that even those words are at best an optimistic interpretation of current data.

Put aside the fact that Pfizer has NEVER compared a three-dose vaccine regimen to a placebo in a clinical trial.

Put aside the fact that “reasonable right now” suggests that any effect of a third dose will not last.


Even against “the hospitalizations and the severe disease.”

(Just The News) 

QUOTE: Georgia authorities have launched an investigation into an allegation of systematic ballot harvesting during the state’s 2020 general election and subsequent U.S. Senate runoff and may soon issue subpoenas to secure evidence, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger confirmed to Just the News.

 Georgia law strictly prohibits third-party activists from picking up and delivering ballots on behalf of voters, a tactic called “harvesting” that liberal organizers have tried to get legalized in many battleground states without success. The U.S. Supreme Court this summer rejected Democrat efforts to overturn an Arizona law that outlawed harvesting in the battleground state.

Raffensperger, who is seeking reelection in 2022, led a successful effort in 2019 to strengthen Georgia’s prohibition against harvesting ahead of the 2020 presidential election, and defeated an effort by prominent Democrat lawyer Marc Elias to overturn the harvesting ban. Raffensperger also reviewed and rejected claims by former President Donald Trump of widespread fraud during the 2020 election in a series of contacts under investigation by a local district attorney in Atlanta and the Jan. 6 select committee in Congress.

Raffensperger confirmed in an interview aired Tuesday on the John Solomon Reports podcast that his office has deemed the allegations credible enough to open an investigation and possibly seek subpoenas from the State Election Board to secure evidence.

 “We do have some information,” Raffensperger said. “And we are going to investigate that. We did deploy drop boxes that were under 24/7 surveillance, and because they were then that really, you know, can indicate who dropped that information off, and we’re really just going through that.” 

_________________________2- We all want to stop supporting China but it is tough to do so when Amazon makes things so convenient and cheap! Here are a few tips to help you be more sensitive to buying products made in China and some ways to work around and find American products.

Break Your Chinese Shopping Habit for 2022: Here’s How

(PJ Media)  

QUOTE:  China is the United States’ greatest existential threat and geopolitical enemy. They steal our intellectual property. They hack us and spy on us. They trade and form military alliances with our enemies. They colonize, buy, and assimilate territory all over the world at a frightening rate. And they’ve infiltrated the U.S. to a shocking degree already, evidenced by our increasingly authoritarian government-global corporation complex.

No, you don’t have to give up Amazon or Walmart.

It’s almost impossible to beat the convenience of online shopping at Amazon, Walmart, and the like. Luckily, there’s a simple way to filter your search results for items produced by American workers in American companies. When you type what you’re looking for into the search field, first add the phrase “made in USA,” then type the rest.

There are also websites from which you can buy directly, and which sell only American-made products, but their selection tends to be more limited. The Grommet is a good example: on this site, you can shop through a department or just type specifically what you’re looking for into the search window. While such sites may or may not carry what you’re looking for, if they do have it, you can complete your purchase right there with a couple clicks — and feel righteous about spending money while you’re at it!

______________________3- We pray this is true and that people will resist the pressure to keep getting endless jabs.Covid experts warn fourth dose of vaccine may be pointless and Omicron might end pandemic

(Daily Mail Online) 

QUOTE: The US, the UK and other major economies could be on the brink of over-vaccinating people in the fight against Covid, experts say.

Israeli officials have already announced their intentions to embark on dishing out another round of booster jabs, meaning both the US and UK will eventually face pressure to follow suit even though both nations have insisted there are no plans to administer fourth doses yet.

But scientists argue that rolling out vaccines every three-to-four months simply isn’t ‘doable’ and may not even be necessary because of Omicron, which some believe will speed up the process of endemicity and consign days of sky-high hospitalization and death figures to history. 

And they called for more data on dosing gaps between boosters before pressing ahead with plans to administer fourth jabs. Some experts claim the benefits of extra jabs are minimal because their primary purpose – preventing deaths and hospitalizations – has barely waned after a year and several Covid variants, effectively meaning boosters are adding to an already high base level immunity.   

_________________________4- It is rare to read an admission this blunt.  It is also refreshing.I was wrong about COVID-19(Kaylee McGhee White- Washington Examiner)

QUOTE: For the first few months of the pandemic, I was wrong on just about everything regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. I supported the initial two-week lockdown that turned into six months of forced isolation. I encouraged people to wear cloth masks that don’t work. I argued that the threat posed by the pandemic required collective sacrifice. I even defended Dr. Anthony Fauci.

These positions were the biggest failures of my career so far.

Even though we knew very little about COVID-19, I knew enough about the government and its desire for control to have understood that “14 days to stop the spread” would turn into an extensive battle for normalcy. I should have known that forcing people to change their behavior in service of a collective cause would lead many to develop a sort of religious zeal for that cause. Most regrettably, I should have seen through the hubris of our public health officials, many of whom I naively trusted, and recognized the political self-interest at the core of so many of their policies

Hello 2022

Dear Patriots,

This year will be pivotal for each of us and for our country.

Defending The Republic is optimistic that our year of building and organizing places us in a position to bring real solutions to the many issues that face us.

We have produced this brief video taking a look back on the year. It is good to look back to make sure we are ready to go forward into the future.

Please watch and share.

This year we will continue talking to you each week; informing you of news that is being hidden or underreported.

Today, we have much to share.


1- Shockingly, after two years, there is NO consistently used treatment for Covid-CCP. The medical community refuses to collectively treat Americans once they become ill.

The ONE exception to this was the antibody infusion treatment that popped up last summer.

As soon as the positive results of this treatment were exposed, the Biden Regime made it unavailable. How many of us have to die before we can get consistent treatment that does not involve the dangerous vaccine?

Doctors Outraged After Biden Regime Shuts Down Life-Saving Monoclonal Antibody Treatments


QUOTE: Doctors across the country are expressing shock and outrage after the Biden regime shut off distribution of monoclonal antibodies, preventing them from treating patients infected with the Delta coronavirus with the life-saving therapeutic.


In a letter addressed to Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra Tuesday, Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo accused the Biden administration of “actively preventing the effective distribution of monoclonal antibody treatments,” undermining Florida’s strategy to handle the disease.


The Biden administration paused shipments of the monoclonal antibodies because according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the treatment isn’t effective against Omicron, which they claim became the dominant strain earlier this month.


However, the CDC has now admits that it seriously miscalculated the prevalence of the Omicron variant in the US, according to the Daily Mail reported, “overblowing the figure by as much as 50 percentage points, sowing confusion as the nation breaks records for new cases.”



2- This is why elections matter and why who you vote for makes an enormous difference in your every day life. People in states with sensible leadership have protections that those in liberal dominated states do not. It is no wonder there is currently a mass exodus from Blue States.

Red States Boost Unemployment For Unvaxed Workers Fired Over Vaccine Status


QUOTE: At least five states have passed legislation boosting unemployment insurance for workers who lose their jobs for being unvaccinated, and several more states are considering similar protections.


Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Kansas, and Tennessee have extended unemployment benefits for workers fired for not getting vaccinated against COVID-19. Lawmakers in Wyoming, Wisconsin, and Missouri are considering similar worker protections in a Republican-led effort to fight back against President Joe Biden’s federal vaccine orders, which cover millions of private workers and federal contractors.


Biden’s vaccine orders have sparked widespread and intense pushback from elected officials and private businesses. The Daily Wire is leading a legal challenge against one of Biden’s orders mandating that companies with at least 100 employees either vaccinate or regularly test workers for COVID-19. Any worker who refuses the vaccine or tests must be fired or the business will be fined a minimum of roughly $14,000 per infraction, according to the mandate.


Despite the Biden administration’s push for a federal fix for the spread of COVID-19, the president said on Monday during a call with state governors that “there is no federal solution. This gets solved at the state level.”


3- No one knows why there is an unheard of 40% increase in DEATHS among young healthy people? Humm.

Reading this entire article, there seems to be a word missing. Could we consider that most if not all of these deaths may have been caused by a recently introduced medical procedure called the Covid-CCP VACCINE? It is now being nicknamed the “Clot Shot”, and for good reason.

Or, could we also just consider that two years of “flattening the curve” has caused more alcoholism, drug use, depression and illness?

Honestly, it may NOT be the vaccine that is causing unprecedented deaths in young people. But, could someone, at the very least, STUDY and examine the possibility instead of continuing to blindly force it on every working person and the military?

Insurance CEO says deaths up 40% among working age people, and it’s not just COVID


QUOTE: “We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business,” OneAmerica CEO Scott Davison says.


The head of OneAmerica insurance said the death rate is up a stunning 40% from pre-pandemic levels among working-age people.


“We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business – not just at OneAmerica,” the company’s CEO Scott Davison said during an online news conference this week. “The data is consistent across every player in that business.”


Davison said the increase in deaths represents “huge, huge numbers,” and that’s it’s not elderly people who are dying, but “primarily working-age people 18 to 64″ who are the employees of companies that have group life insurance plans through OneAmerica.”Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be 10% increase over pre-pandemic,” he said. “So 40% is just unheard of.”


4- We spent some time last year talking about how to get healthy and strong. We believe that healthy people are harder to push around!

Once again we share this totally overlooked aspect of our two years of Covid-CCP hysteria. We will be talking more about ways to improve your health this year, but in the meantime, you can drop your chances of Covid-CCP complications up to 60% by losing weight!

Study Shows That Losing Weight Drastically Reduces Risk Of Severe COVID-19 Outcomes


QUOTE: A new study concluded that Americans can reduce their risk from COVID-19 by losing a few pounds.


The Cleveland Clinic found that, among COVID-19 patients with obesity, weight loss via bariatric surgery was associated with a 60% reduction in risk of severe complications from the virus.


“Obesity weakens the immune system, creates a chronic inflammatory state, and increases risk for cardiovascular disease, blood clots, and lung conditions. All of these conditions can complicate COVID-19,” the Clinic said in a press release. “Our study provides strong evidence that obesity is a modifiable risk factor for COVID-19 that can be improved through a successful weight-loss intervention,” Dr. Ali Aminian, the study’s lead author, said.


“This study suggests that an emphasis on weight loss as a public health strategy can improve outcomes during the COVID-19 pandemic and future outbreaks or related infectious diseases,” said Dr. Steven Nissen, chief academic officer at the Heart, Vascular and Thoracic Institute at Cleveland Clinic. “That is a very important finding considering that 40% of Americans have obesity.”


5- As Biden told us before Christmas regarding his plan to end Covid-CCP, “There is no federal solution.”  We agree!

This is not only true in regard to Covid-CCP but on almost all issues. Massive government overreach into global warming is a folly. This year alone produced massive failures.

Read them all. We pulled two of the worst.

“The Top 10 Under-reported Climate Flops of 2021”


QUOTE: The year 2021 may go down in history as the year that foretold the end of the climate idiocy movement — although the movement is unlikely to take the hint.


This year witnessed the follies, failures and lies of climate idiocy laid bare for all to see — that is, if the media had actually reported them.


So here are the 10 biggest failures of the climate movement in 2021. The only reason the climate movement survives past these flops is because the mainstream media keeps it afloat by failing to honestly report the news.


2. Frozen Texas windmills causes blackouts that kill dozens. As bitterly cold weather approached Texas before Valentine’s Day weekend, Texas regulators opted to rely on wind turbines to provide 30% of the state’s electricity. But when the weather hit, the wind turbines froze. Because of the faith that the wind turbines would work in the approaching cold weather, back-up natural gas facilities were not prepared to step in to fill the gap. Much of Texas went dark and the state came within just a few minutes of a total grid failure that could have last weeks. More than 200 died as a result of the power failure. The media response has been to try and shift blame from the wind turbines to the fossil fuel plants. But the bottom line is: The wind failed first and worst in Texas.


4. Biden’s war on fracking backfires — raises energy prices and emissions — and makes the US dependent on OPEC again. President Biden campaigned in 2020 on banning fracking and his first year in office has not disappointed. Biden has taken a number of actions to depress US oil production as oil demand ramped up from the lows during the COVID pandemic. Throw in the global energy crisis (See No. 1) and Americans are paying the highest prices for gasoline in more than a decade. Biden has “tried ” to alleviate this crisis by asking the OPEC cartel to increase oil production, signaling the transfer of energy dominance from the US (under President Trump) back to the cartel. OPEC then rebuffed Biden. High natural gas prices have also caused US electric utilities to burn 20% more coal which will result in an increase in US emissions.

After Spokane Food Program Officials Turn Away Unvaccinated for Christmas Meals – Patriots Step In and Feed Everyone


QUOTE: A week before Christmas, in Spokane, WA, the Christmas Bureau food assistance program turned away needy people who could not show proof of Covid-19 vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test no more than 72 hours old.


The Christmas Bureau is an annual holiday assistance program coordinated by Catholic Charities Eastern Washington, Volunteers of America, and the Spokesman-Review. The program is made possible by generous monetary funds and volunteer hours donated by community members and organizations.


In response to the Christmas Bureau’s actions, a group of Christian patriots launched a “No Vaccine Canteen” to feed everyone — regardless of their medical history. Dan Bell, who helped organize a food drive and feed the homeless, said he was surprised to see that a Catholic church was involved in turning away the hungry.


“As a Christian, if you’re following the teachings of Jesus, you feed the hungry, right? You feed all hungry. So, we wanted to make sure nobody went without a good hot meal on Christmas,” Bell said in an interview with the North Idaho Exposed YouTube channel.

Suburban Chicago village stands up to new ‘political’ vaccination mandate

QUOTE: A village in the suburban Chicago area is standing up to Cook County’s new vaccination mandate.


The Village of Orland Park, which sits about 25 miles southwest of Chicago, said it would not enforce the mandate, according to a resolution passed by village officials Tuesday.


The Orland Park Board of Trustees voted unanimously to pass the resolution, saying that no data could be presented to support the county’s “political” mandate, according to a report. “If a mandate is going to be passed, it should be passed by law. It should be done by the legislative body, and additionally, it should be supported by data and facts,” Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau said.


Orland Park has a lower case rate than both Illinois and suburban Cook County as a whole, and the village has not once enforced a mask mandate, according to the mayor. In total, roughly 94% of the village’s residents are vaccinated, and several came to voice their opinions at Tuesday night’s meeting.

“There is no evidence that the vaxxed versus the unvaccinated can catch this disease more,” Diane Murphy said.

Vaccines don’t stop Covid hospitalizations or deaths. They never have, even at peak effectiveness. A huge US database offers proof


QUOTE: Even at the peak of their protection earlier in 2021, Covid vaccines barely reduced the risk of hospitalizations in vaccinated people who had “breakthrough” infections, new data show.


Vaccinated people in a study published Tuesday had a nearly 1 in 200 chance of of requiring hospitalization for Covid in the first six months after being “fully vaccinated.”


That stunning risk came even though the median age of people in the study was only 51, and most were relatively healthy.


Deaths, ventilator use, and other severe outcomes also occurred regularly in vaccinated people. The data comes from a study of about 600,000 vaccinated Americans seen at over 100 academic medical centers.


The study was published online Dec. 28 in the Journal of the American Medical Association – JAMA Internal Medicine.


The data in the study also make clear how quickly vaccine protection fades after the second dose – and that the Centers for Disease Control hugely understated the number of vaccinated people hospitalized for Covid earlier this year.


9- This three hour interview with Dr. Robert Malone is full of interesting ideas and information.

Dr. Robert Malone is the inventor of the nine original mRNA vaccine patents, which were originally filed in 1989.  Since January 2020, Dr. Malone has been leading a large team focused on clinical research design, drug development, computer modeling and mechanisms of action of repurposed drugs for the treatment of COVID-19.

We encourage you to listen to it. It is being removed from some platforms so you know it must be on target! Also, Dr. Malone was kicked off Twitter last week. This is the left’s response to anyone who manages to shine some light in the media darkness.
