Jodi Shaw's battle with Smith College may be ending, but the war against Critical Race Theory has just begun

Jodi Shaw's battle with Smith College may be ending, but the war against Critical Race Theory has just begun By CLG Founder, Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D. | 25 Feb 2021 | After over a year of combating Critical Race Theory (CRT) at Smith College, Jodi Shaw finally submitted her letter of resignation to President Kathleen McCartney. She thereby relinquished her position as a Student Support Coordinator in Student Affairs, which earned her a whopping $45,000 per year. But, you see, Jodi Shaw is "privileged," and, according to the CRT experts at Smith College and elsewhere, her privilege needs to be eradicated. She needs to be subjected to CRT's racial profiling, struggle sessions, and shaming routines in order to root out her secret disease. Seeing no end in sight, Shaw finally decided she'd had enough.

Bongino highlights double standard over Biden using same migrant facilities press criticized under Trump

Bongino highlights double standard over Biden using same migrant facilities press criticized under Trump | 24 Feb 2021 | The mainstream media is demonstrating a clear double standard by not calling out the Biden administration for utilizing the same migrant facilities as its predecessor, Fox News contributor Dan Bongino told "Outnumbered" Wednesday. Bongino referenced a diagram posted on social media by Campus Reform Editor-in-Chief Cabot Phillips that illustrates the difference between the media's coverage of the two administrations. "It said: ‘Is Donald Trump your president?' 'Yes.' And when he is, they refer to his 'concentration camps,' 'cages,' and then with the exact same facilities [they ask]: 'Is Donald Trump the president?' 'No.' They're 'temporary facilities.'"

Texas's deregulated electricity market raised consumer costs by $28B - WSJ | 24 Feb 2021 | Texas's deregulated electricity market has raised costs to consumers by $28 billion since 2004, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis published Wednesday.

That was followed by many households receiving sky-high electricity bills, with warnings from experts that consumers are likely to be hit with covering the costs for grid upgrades.

The Great Reset Rubric: Making Sense of Our Present Dystopia

The Great Reset Rubric: Making Sense of Our Present Dystopia By CLG Founder Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D. | 23 Feb 2021 | The Great Reset represents the best rubric we might find for grasping much of what's going on in the world today: the prevalence of woke ideology and cancel culture; the draconian COVID responses; the seemingly endless Antifa/BLM riots; the supposed Biden presidential victory; Big Tech censorship; and the endless stream of propaganda, double think, and gaslighting propagated by mainstream and social media. Even if not by design, as I will show, all of these seemingly disparate elements interlock in a way that support Great Reset objectives, and the Great Re-setters favor all of these developments. Likewise, once we are able to grasp the contours of the Great Reset, we will be poised to understand the reason for the prevalence of these elements and how they all interconnect and function together to produce our present dystopia.

Lawmakers Demand Investigation of NIH, Pentagon 'Secretively' Funneling US Tax Dollars to Wuhan Lab

Lawmakers Demand Investigation of NIH, Pentagon 'Secretively' Funneling US Tax Dollars to Wuhan Lab | 23 Feb 2021 | A letter sent Tuesday from members of Congress to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Inspector General Christi Grimm is demanding a "prompt and thorough investigation" into the National Institutes of Health's relationship with the Chinese Communist Party-run Wuhan Institute of Virology. The 28 congressional signers, led by Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., wrote: "The NIH, unfortunately, has played a major role in supporting [the Wuhan Institute of Virology] and this treacherous research and the promotion of spurious claims dismissing the NIH-funded lab's potential role in the COVID-19 pandemic." Lawmakers wrote that the NIH and Pentagon are responsible for "secretively" funneling tax dollars to the Wuhan research lab through the U.S.-based nonprofit EcoHealth Alliance. The Wuhan Institute of Virology has already received $600,000 in U.S. taxpayer funds between 2014 and 2019 to study bat-based coronaviruses through EcoHealth Alliance, and the lab is still authorized to receive U.S. tax dollars for animal experiments until 2024.

Democrats' 'chilling' letter demands cable providers account for 'misinformation' and 'lies' from 'right-wing media outlets' they carry | 23 Feb 2021 | Two Democratic members of Congress penned letters Monday to a dozen cable providers demanding they account for "misinformation, disinformation, conspiracy theories, and lies" from "right-wing media outlets" they carry -- and the networks specifically named were Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News Network. The letters from U.S. Reps. Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney, both of California, were addressed to AT&T, Verizon, Roku, Amazon, Apple, Comcast, Charter, Dish, Cox, Altice, Alphabet, and Hulu... Eshoo and McNerney demanded in their letters that cable providers explain "what moral or ethical principles (including those related to journalistic integrity, violence, medical information, and public health) do you apply in deciding which channels to carry or when to take adverse actions against a channel?" The letters also asked the cable providers to detail what steps they've taken to "monitor, respond to, and reduce the spread of disinformation" from news networks they carry, as well as any punitive measures they've taken against such channels -- and if they plan to carry networks like Fox News, Newsmax, and OANN once contracts expire. [Omg. In other words, we're not allowed to question any aspects of the scamdemic and/or the deadly Gates/Fauci vaccine. If this totalitarinism isn't a call to the Second American Revolution, I surely don't know what is.]
