Yesterday found out my coworkers son going away to college in the Panhandle of Texas was notified and asked if there was any problem with his soon-to-be roommate being transgender (biological female in a men's dorm). Thankfully the University allowed the son to opt for other arrangements and was respectful of his and his parents religious beliefs and wishes. This is in the reddest part of the state of Texas we are talking about. I am a stranger in my own country and state. I've even started to consider leaving paid employment because I just cannot, in good conscience continue to send my tax dollars to the fraud and corruption that is our government. The one thing they are supposed to do is uphold the Constitution fairly and protect our borders from invasion, both of which they are actively and demonstrably failing at in epic form. How can you continue to give your tax dollars to support corruption?

In a JCPenney store in South Dakota the other day, I heard a mother and daughter talking in English. That's it. Every other customer group was speaking some other language. We are not anywhere near the southern border, and we have miserably brutal winters, so I have to wonder what draws these folks who have no cultural, historical, geographical, or economic ties to this area.

They are purposefully planted in all States, that’s why. Our government is placing them wherever they want. Get used to it.

I just had this conversation with someone who runs a cleaning service

She said the young people coming here have no desire to work hard- they’re told they can come here and make huge money- doing very little. She thinks that’s why they’re coming.

Well, housecleaning is hard physical work and she can’t keep the young girls. She said she’s lost more girls than she can count to…dance/strip clubs!

Because they can work fewer hours and make more money … and maybe catch a man in the process

We live 60 miles from NYC. When we watch the news, EVERY PERSON they interview has an accent and/or can barely speak English! WTH? Do they deliberately stay away from people who are fluent in English, or is this done to prove that NYC is still a melting pot? One would think that everyone who lives in or around NYC is a foreigner. Happens after every incident where they interview the people who live in those neighborhoods....What’s the point?

They are assigned to certain areas to turn them blue. Is your state one of the 15 giving them driver's licenses which automatically registers them to vote, or like Houston Texas, they are paid a universal basic income (Uplift Harris) or your local Catholic Charities has sponsored them into your town.

Expand full comment

(Uplift Harris) is supplying a universal basic income? I am intimately aware with a certain Houston religious group funding healthcare clinics (medical and dental) where no and low cost healthcare is provided to "refugees" and you cannot imagine the Texas Code of Rules and Regulations along with the U.S. Code that has been written to provide everything a person needs to live a wonderful and 100% parasitic life in ease and comfort. I will definitely investigate Uplift Houston and thank you for that information.

Regarding auto-voter registration: Texas is not one of the states that allows non-citizens to possess a driver's license, that should be illegal; as well should be automatically registering to vote. Those 2 practices when combined would constitute direct governmental fraud, election meddling, true insurrection. Not an insurrection from the Uniparty war room, who now holds persons in jail as domestic terrorists for the crime of attending a peaceful protest of an obviously stolen Presidential Election.

I heard a talk by a local police dept spokesman, and he kept extolling the virtues of Lutheran Social Services (https://lsssd.org - separate entity from the church) in bringing in and acclimating immigrants. They receive government grants to do this.

Expand full comment

Lots of Christian charities do this.

It makes me angry.

On the one hand, as Christians, we're called to care for the orphan, widow and the needy. On the other hand, does that mean if our government brings all the widows, orphans and needy and drops them on our doorstep, we're required to care for them all? How is that right? Are these people not the least bit responsible for their own lives? Not caring for them could lead to their death and I believe that man is made in the image of God and therefore worthy of care. But I don't understand how the orphans, widows and needy breaking the law makes them my responsibility. Or any other Christian's responsibility.

Before the government crammed all the orphans, widows and needy down our throats, churches used to send out groups of missionaries to help the orphans, widows and needy in their own lands. I guess that's just not good enough anymore.

Honestly, that shocks me that Lutheran Social services is completely divorced from the Lutheran Church. Was it ever associated?

The churches are 100% responsible for the MAP pedo agenda and Im in shock at how many Christians didn't hold their leaders accountable to stop this madness 50 years ago.

IMHO, yes, you are wrong. You go to church to hear the word of God...to grow closer to him. The churches do not send people here, they help those who are here because they are God’s children.

I have noticed that for several years the high number of people speaking in another non-english language in my N GA area. In fact, at the farmers market there was a lady next to me, looked mid to upper class, speaking just a little English, and used medicaid coins to buy fresh basil.

I understand where you are coming from and agree with your take for the most part, just a word of caution on making assumptions—more and more people are choosing to raise their children to be bilingual and may just be speaking in their “family”/minority language. This is my case and the case of several of my family and friends. But we also make sure our kids know English (actually unless you segregate yourself in a specific community, it’s almost impossible for them not to, in fact full and balanced bilingualism is very difficult to achieve). I am sure people in stores hearing me speak to my kids in another language have often thought we were non English speaking recent immigrants, when that is completely not the case.

I am in central Florida so not near Miami which I would expect, it's either rednecks or non English speaking people. I literally have to ask someone if they speak English if they don't have a baseball cap and jeans on. I lived in England for 20 years and probably 60% were non English. Everyone spoke English. What annoys me is how they expect services to speak to them in their language, so you can't get a job unless you are bilingual locally - they need to be forced somehow to learn English.

Many majors are sponsoring young aspiring pilots in flight academies right now to deal with the already-bad-and-only-going-to-get worse ATP shortage. Another option is to get a four year degree in an aeronautical field at one of the schools (Embry-Riddle in FL, Purdue in IN, or U. of North Dakota are the big three in this area) where alongside your degree you are trained up through commercial multi-engine/CFI/CFII and then get into the pipeline to acquire your 1500 hours before you can jump to a major. There are plenty of ways to become an airline pilot that don't require you to get anywhere near Colorado Springs.

He could always consider Hillsdale college, or any other college that upholds traditional values.

Expand full comment

Hillsdale had a HUGE applicant pool last year.

And, I have not gotten the impression that Hillsdale is necessarily accommodating to our kids with “quirks” whose learning styles don’t fit the Classical model of education.

Don’t get me wrong - it seems to be a great school! But it cannot possibly serve alllll the kids who need a quality, truly traditional (classical, but not in the Classical way) college education.

Expand full comment

Copernicus is right. The demand for Hillsdale has increased tremendously since Covid. My daughter just graduated and she said that the school's leadership really doesn't want to increase the size much more because than what makes Hilldale, Hillsdale will be compromised.

Regarding quirky students: my oldest son also graduated from Hillsdale, Copernicus and he is clearly on the ASD spectrum (I would say high-functioning/Asperger's). I found the staff, students and professors to be very caring and tolerant of his many verbal and physical tics and his tendency to perseverate on ideas. But while at Hillsdale he was highly involved in the Catholic group, orchestra, honors program and music fraternity. Though the competition to get in is only going to get more intense, it is definitely worth consideration.

Expand full comment

What about kids with learning disabilities?

We were in a rigorous private classical model elementary school. Which we loved, until we didn’t. The flexibility and willingness to accommodate was non-existent. We were told the child just needed to stop complaining and do the work like everyone else was doing. 😡

Copywork as a way of learning penmanship and grammar and such is great. Unless you have a writing disability and still can’t remember how to form letters, for instance. (In college obviously they’ll be typing, but even typing can be a challenge for some of these kids.). Our school didn’t see it that way.

Expand full comment

I can attest to the inflexibility at classic ed schools. It was a great place, but the work load was a nightmare for me to ensure my child got accomodations. It really depended on the teacher and was not cut and dry so the expectations were unclear. Expectations in teaching is most important for student success.

Expand full comment

I had my youngest child in a rigorous classical school and agree with you that they can be inflexible. Having differences in processing and learning styles shouldn't be a barrier to attending a classical school, but leadership in these settings think they can just "will" kids to a certain level of performance. I definitely understand what you are saying. I would ask to speak to someone at Hillsdale regarding your specific concerns. I do know that they have many homeschool students at Hillsdale.

Expand full comment

The classical school model isn’t for every child. The curriculum is set, the work is rigorous and in our classical and Christian school, they made that clear in the first prospective parent meeting. They really can’t accommodate children with learning disabilities. In recent years, a teacher from that school started an alternative Christian school here, geared especially to those children with learning or emotional disabilities!

….We finally left the C&C school after our two girls finished the 8th & tenth grades because the school culture was sick — esp. in the upper grades. Homeschooled for a year & then entered them in another Christian high school here, which lacked the order & academic rigor, but truly made up for it in Christian love, service; they encouraged charity, maturity and creativity. Interestingly, many of their classmates were also fellow refugees they’d known from years past at the C&C sch. — including their favorite teacher & her kids.

But it all depends on those at the top!! (Both girls were nat. merit scholars, btw — I attribute that to their first years at the classical school. Those last HS years were INVALUABLE, though!).

Many Blessings!

Yes, I know of a good student who applied to Hillsdale and didn't get accepted. We need more good colleges. Amazing the colleges fall all over themselves trying to be more woke at a time when enrollment has dropped off a cliff, while colleges not doing that have more students applying than ever! Not too smart.

My daughter, who has learning disabilities, just graduated from Spring Arbor University in Michigan. It is a Christian school and has a very caring staff that deals with a lot of kids who need accommodations. It is not even close to the caliber of Hillsdale (I had two kids who went to Hillsdale), but it is a good conservative school, and I highly recommend it.

Since quite a few comments in this thread brought up their own searches for a good school for their children, I thought I’d share a stack from someone I read here. I found this young man’s tale of his search for a decent college very inspirational. He’s very methodical and shares a lot of details about his criteria in looking for a Christian education.

No idea what faith banner he flies under, there were some schools he ruled out because he felt he’d be somewhat uncomfortable with their doctrine and practices personally. But he was very respectful in his approach. Hope it’s helpful to someone else.

Our youngest just graduated from Mid America Christian University in OKC. As traditional Catholics (Latin Mass) we were at first a little concerned about her being indoctrinated with protestantism.

But having her on a campus where the students, the teachers and the administration were all publicly-declared and practicing Christians was a blessing. Although I'm sure some of the students were LGBTQ, it wasn't publicly tolerated.

We are very pleased with her experience there.

Our daughter got her 5th and 6th year of college there (changed majors a couple of times, getting her BA from FSU. She loved it and got extra credit and paid for working at Florida School for the Deaf and Blind. She will be starting her 27th year working with the Deaf (political correct again- it was Hearing Impaired before) in the school system. Their adoption of a 2 year old boy from Chine who was born with no ears has given us a love for that school and FSDB. Our China baby is now living at FSDB, coming home on weekends. Public school offered nothing for the special needs students in most areas, no matter how hard the supervisors of the schools try. Teachers have too much non-educational duties by dealing with students on meds, no breakfast (yes, it’s free, but the kids can’t walk to school alone), not being there and on and on...Now her first born starts teaching 3rd grade in as Orange City school.

Fortunately, my son wants to go to the college 10 miles away so he can live at home. He still thinks he wants to live on campus and it is one of the more conservative campuses but we had a heart to heart about what he might face living in a dorm these days. I already told him that we will know and choose his roommate or it won't happen. I'd be more worried about a trans living in a girl's dorm but I told him that I can't control how many people living nearby might be gay couples or such and who knows what he might walk in on in the bathroom (gay or straight), or drugs, etc and does he really want to live like that? I have a friend whose daughter avoided high school bathrooms because she was scared she'd walk in on someone having sex. I've already told him that I'm not paying for on-campus housing. I'm praying he chooses the at home option especially since I recently learned it is a minimum of $14k to live on that campus and that is a colossal waste of money when home is free and a much better option.

When my son enrolled 7 yrs ago at Oregon State he was late and joined in for the winter term. When he filled out his dorm paperwork they asked a question he didn’t understand at the time (7 yrs ago right?). Because of that question and he was late to enroll and there wasn’t room left anywhere else they placed him in a transgender dorm full of these trans kids! It was awful!!! The place was crawling with very weird, gay, lesbian and trans kids. His roommate ended up “liking” him and it was a dude. 🤮 My poor son. The stories he told us about people undressing in front of each other like it was no big deal, male and female…..ugh. Luckily he found the one bathroom that was for private use and that private bathroom became his best friend! He struggled through that and then was able to get the he$$ out of there and we helped get him an apartment with a normal roommate. And this was 7 years ago before it was the new thing to be transwhatever. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Oh and one of the ones who he didn’t know if it was a boy or girl asked about his tattoo which is of Jesus….when he told that person what it was he/she/it growled at him. 😂

I had no idea this was really getting so ingrained as I have been keeping my head down all these good long 7 years now.

Just a FYI...we don’t ‘give our taxes’...it is not a voluntary action...it is a ‘requirement’ and ‘against the law’ to not pay them... but as they stand today, these ‘taxes’ are truly ‘taxation without representation’ as our government no longer represents ‘the will of the people’ (I believe that is why The Revolutionary War was fought and Our Country was created!)

I am checking into becoming an "expat" in a country that is closely aligned with the USA for many years. I won't name it right now--still in the investigatory stages. Several business connections of mine have visited there several times and were enthralled with it. One of my former clients moved there for his retirement years as it is way more affordable than being retired here in the USA--plus the natives speak English as well as Spanish and they enjoy expat Americanos! It is an Hispanic country--so wish me well, friends! The main religion is Catholic--I have been an independent, evangelical Christian for most of my life--so I should be just fine--faith wise.

Unfortunately you still have to pay taxes on any income. Retirement or worklife…

@DEBORAH E. dds,

As someone with a doctorate (dds?) you might be enmeshed in system think, through indoctrination, no fault of your own. If you are open and choose to think outside the box, outside the indoctrination, to expand your thinking into what is actually true vs what you've been taught all your life (I was there, former hygienist in fact, kept putting off going back to dental school and actually couldn't be happier, but have had my eyes opened so again no fault, no foul), on the subject of taxes I have a book that will make you uncomfortable as you come to understand the truth. Cracking the Code: The Fascinating Truth About Taxation in America by Peter Eric Hendrickson. While he is not a lawyer, the legal scholarship in this book is top notch, irrefutable. I gave a copy to a retired federal law clerk (lawyer that worked for +25 years for a federal judge as a clerk, a coveted position in lawyer land, one that involves heavy research the judge/s themselves don't have the time to do while they are hearing cases) and his response after having skimmed -his word, a researcher skill- the book was, "I see his [author's] argument," which he did not dispute. He allowed he would have to go back to read thoroughly.

The truth is that most Americans do not have a federal income tax liability. It takes cojones to file a truthful return after which one should expect to get pushback from the big bully agency. But the truth is in 'their' code, U.S.C. Title 26. It is obfuscated beyond belief. Legalese. And once you know the truth and act according to the law 'their' (agency) tactics become obvious.

The book is *not* widely available. You might find it at online retailers but the price is liable to be exorbitant. You won't find it at brick and mortar locations. Forget the big retail outlets. Even my local independent bookseller told me it was out of print. Not true. I think it's in its 17th printing. (Suggesting the author does short runs, not hundreds of thousands of copies.) You must go to the author's website:

https://www.losthorizons.com

Info there for purchasing. Be forewarned there is no online payment portal. I suspect this has to do with the fact that the author has been targeted by the government to be made an example of. His fortitude to keep fighting the good fight is beyond admirable. To purchase you must put payment in a stamped envelope. I have ordered at least 4 times, all pre-pandemic. Excellent turn around time, better than expected. I recommended in the past year to someone who purchased and customer service/turn around experience was the same. The website is full of examples (the Bulletin Board) of regular folks who have filed truthful returns and gotten back $$ that they did not owe, typically everything they have paid in outside of their true liability (which is zero).

Myself, when I read the book I experienced major cognitive dissonance. My cells rebelled, they had been so programmed for a lifetime. I "fact checked" a dozen or so references, which all checked out, which exercise was tedious to say the least, tiring probably because I was already in that mental state of cognitive dissonance. I gave the benefit of the doubt on the rest, of which there are dozens if not >100. I didn't count.

Highly recommend. I can pretty safely say you don't have a federal income tax liability. If you don't want to "continue to give your tax dollars to support corruption" (I agree, corruption is baked in to that sector: read Whitney Webb's One Nation Under Blackmail) you owe it to yourself to become informed. I hope something here is helpful to you on your journey. Blessings.

This is the usual nutball tax protester theories about "income." There are ZERO actual tax attorneys or courts who will put up with these fringe theories.

Try it and you may end up in federal prison. Notorious tax protester Irwin Schiff pushed this same theory as to what constitutes "income" and died in prison for his idiocy.

Expand full comment

yeah Elaine Brown ended up in federal prison for trying to not pay taxes. End up in prison and lose your license. Everyone knows the tax code says you don't have to pay taxes but the system doesn't care. Look at Joe Biden and Hunter flaunting their corruption graft and lucre. You think they are going to get any kind of justice? No. the system is now being helped by A.I. A.I. is progressing to the point they can read your mind with a cell phone and also place thoughts in your consciousness. I know it sounds completely made up. Look it up. It's on Quora. It's happening everywhere and the big Universityy research dept. are admitting it.

I personally know people that don't pay federal income tax. So much for me since I'm not at liberty to reveal names. I'm just a screwball nut job anonymous nobody on the internet. Ah well.

I agree that both nanotech and subliminal whatever-they're-blasting-us-with are a frightening proposition. Glad I'm not a spring chicken. Less earthtime left to have to deal with the worst of what they have planned. Though I'm sure that in the end God wins. I have no clue on the timeline. The trick, imho, is not caving to fear. It hovers, threatening, but I'm goofy enough (you already knew that) to name it, call it out and keep it at bay 98% of the time. Makes for a better life experience. ~The Cockeyed Optimist

Not true @Fred Bennett. You must do your homework. No argument here is based on the Constitution. That's precisely the tack/"nutball protestor theories about 'income' " that gets people into trouble. The law applied is all from the code, U.S.C. Title 26, which is completely separate from the Constitution. The code was "written by" the IRS (like laws are written by drug companies or insurance companies). It is their code. Are you aware that the code has a definition of "includes" and "including"? Do you know what the definition of "includes" and/or "including" is? You probably do. Most people can come up with a reasonable definition off the top of their head, one that would compare fairly to a dictionary definition. There is a common meaning in the English language. Why is there a definition of "includes" and "including" in the code? Do they assume we're stupid? (Well, ok, I grant that could be argued. Ugh. 🙄) The only reasonable answer is because there is a different / special legal meaning within the code. And indeed there is. Under certain circumstances the terms (new legal terms created by the code, NOT words: read again, terms, legal terms, *not* words) "includes" and "including" have a meaning quite different from the common meaning. Look at §7701(c), speaking of obfuscating legalese. If you can't determine on your own what the heck is meant by the legalese, the book Cracking the Code is extremely helpful getting around the obfuscation. Truly. I don't mind arguing intelligently, no ad hominems (of which "nutball tax protester" is one), no emotional outbursts, but you must become informed first. We have to start with the same knowledge base, even if you believe it to be false and are prepared to demonstrate evidence of its incorrectness. All due respect. Most anybody here reading Jeff Childers has a critically thinking mind. I suspect you are very much one of that crowd. This is a different area of investigation and, respectfully, you must dig in and learn before you reflexively respond to what you have seen in the past in the way of folks who have argued the Constitution with regard to tax law. Particularly, in case you are unaware(?) of the 1871 creation of the DC corporation which has nothing to do with the 1780s Constitution, and under which U.S.C. Title 26 was crafted. I encourage you to dig in. The recommended book is scholarly. If you have no scholarship with regard to the code, check it out, and feel free to fact check every single reference. When you bring evidence to rebut, I will sit and listen to your arguments. Until then, please refrain from using a broad brush to paint anyone informed about the code with disparaging characterizations. Thank you for your attention.

Concerning the chef. Perhaps the jabs, but I'm leaning more towards an Arkanside. Cleaning up loose ends. Note that many of the Clintons Arkansides weren't enemies, but people who knew too much. Recall 4 former bodyguards of Clinton's were killed at Waco, just one example. Of many. And knowing Mr. Obama's proclivities, well.....

A: Three.

That begs the 2nd question. Why did the third building fall when only two airplanes hit one building each?

Which again begs a 3rd question. Who were the tenants in that mysterious 3rd building that was reported to have fallen five times that day before it actually fell at 5:24PM.

At the time, 9/11/2001, I had almost 24 years experience as a full-time firefighter with considerable training and experience in building construction and why buildings catastrophically fail. I was not surprised when the three buildings fell. This summer an I-95 bridge collapsed in Philadelphia due to a fire. The bridge was constructed of steel and concrete, two substances generally considered by the general populace to be unaffected by fire. The bridge collapse was also predicable and no surprise. Predictable incidents occurring about the same time are co-incidents.

Building 7 had limited damage. So how did it fall, pancake style, just like tower 1 and 2? It takes weeks to install demolition charges in a 47 floor structure like that.

More than 90% of the structural steel in the WTC towers was never exposed to any fire or structurally compromised in any way. Every fireman or structural engineer on the planet should question those collapses, which all three defy the laws of physics.

“Chef Campbell’s Instagram page, hashtagged “#fitchef,” includes clips of his workouts, including Olympic swimming — for times. In his videos, Tafari practices backstroke and freestyle, records a 40-minute-long swim workout with his Apple watch, and benches an impressive 315 pounds. Ironically, from social media posts it appears Tafari accomplished a long-standing goal of becoming a confident swimmer around five years ago.”

Apparently he could swim quite well, unless something else was going on.
