The First Amendment says that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” but make no mistake: we do have an established religion in the United States today. It’s woke Leftism.
Wokeism, including sexual confusion, contempt for masculinity, erasure of femininity, obsession with racism real and imagined (mostly the latter), is the religion that the U.S. government backs and fosters today. There are pride flags at U.S. embassies around the world, openly “gender fluid” and transgender government officials, and fulsome praise for Leftist societal and sexual fads from officials at the highest levels, including the president of the United States himself. It became clear during the presidential administration of Joe Biden that establishment, like religion itself, is inescapable: just as individuals who insist that they are atheists have some central focus and guiding force and principle in their lives, that is, something that takes the place and serves the purpose of a religion, so governments will endorse and even impose certain values.
On May 5, 2022, the Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) announced that it was planning to “interpret the prohibition on discrimination based on sex found in Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and in the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008, as amended, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly the Food Stamp Program (7 USC § 2011 et seq.), to include discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.” This new interpretation would mean that “state and local agencies, program operators and sponsors that receive funds from FNS must investigate allegations of discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation. Those organizations must also update their non-discrimination policies and signage to include prohibitions against discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation.”
This new policy required schools that received federal funding for lunch programs to endorse and promote the transgenderism, including allowing biological men to use women’s bathrooms. If any school refused to comply, it would be denied federal funds.
This Agriculture Department decree was just one example of a myriad of ways in which Biden’s handlers were pushing the woke agenda upon the American people. On June 15, 2022, Biden signed what his administration called an “historic executive order” that was designed to aid in “advancing LGTBQI+ equality during Pride Month.” The White House press office stated proudly: “President Biden believes that no one should face discrimination because of who they are or whom they love. Since President Biden took office, he has championed the rights of LGBTQI+ Americans and people around the world, accelerating the march towards full equality.” To this end, the White House announced plans to end “conversion therapy,” that is, efforts to convince young people not to be homosexual, or even to convince those suffering gender confusion that they should not seek to alter themselves through surgery and pharmaceuticals so that they could pretend to be a member of the opposite sex.
“As a candidate,” the White House said, “President Biden pledged to help end so-called ‘conversion therapy’ – a discredited and dangerous practice that seeks to suppress or change the sexual orientation or gender identity of LGBTQI+ people. Today, President Biden is using his executive authority to launch an initiative to protect children across America and crack down on this harmful practice, which every major medical association in the United States has condemned.” This opened the possibility that those who tried to fight the prevailing gender fantasy and madness could face criminal prosecution.
Joe Biden, or the shadowy figures who were actually making the decisions in his administration, was establishing a religion for his people: rewarding the orthodox and punishing the heretical and their institutions in ways that would make the heresy less appealing and put it on the road to extinction. The most obvious difference, of course, is that Biden’s Leftism isn’t generally recognized as a religion, although it very much is one, as can be seen all over, for instance in the transgender pronoun fantasies and hunt for heretics who dare to “misgender” a particular fantasist, and the fervor with which supporters of abortion vowed to fight against all restrictions to the practice after Roe v. Wade was overturned.
But since this secular ideology is not understood to be a religion, it is not seen as an established creed in violation of the First Amendment, as it would be in a sane polity. If it were, then the solution to it would also be found in the First Amendment, in the prohibition of such an establishment, and provisions such as school lunch money being withheld from schools that refused to indulge insane gender faddism would be seen as establishing a religion, and accordingly ended. But don’t watch for that to happen here.

What you are about to watch is a nightmare. It is not meant to be prophetic, it need not happen, it's the fervent and urgent prayer of all men of good will that it never shall happen. But in this place, in this moment, it does happen. This is the Twilight Zone. - Rod Serling
Given our declining economy that's in recession and hurting average Americans, a massive red wave is predicted for the 2022 mid-term elections, a nightmare for Democrats and they are in panic mode.
Angry voters are poised to kick out of power the tyrannical Democrats who are bent on transforming America into their version of a socialist utopia, which, in reality, will be a socialist nightmare.
"Picture if you will" the depths desperate Democrats will sink, including election fraud, to thwart the will of the people and hold on to power.
Connecting some dots will provide a window into the election fraud Twilight Zone concocted by socialist Democrats who are colluding with corrupt media cohorts.
Here are the dots:
First dot: Democrat-friendly pollsters have begun publishing incredulous polls that show Democrats with a generic election preference edge, contrary to earlier polling.
Notably, in his July 1, 2022 article "Poll: GOP Holds Same Generic Ballot Lead as Week Before Roe Overturned," Nick Gilbertson wrote: "A Rasmussen Reports poll reveals that a generic Republican candidate holds the same 5-point lead over a generic Democrat candidate as the week before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade."
Then, curiously, on July 22, 2002 a somewhat more rosy election picture was painted by Mark Murray in his article "Generic ballot position has improved for Democrats — but be careful reading the numbers."
"Historically, the generic ballot has overstated Democratic performance.
"The generic ballot numbers have been climbing for Democrats in polling over the past month.
"Despite President Joe Biden’s approval rating in the 30s, a recent Quinnipiac poll found 45% of registered voters wanting Democrats to control the U.S. House of Representatives, versus 44% who want Republicans in charge — a shift from when Republicans held a 5-point advantage on this question in June, 46%-41%.
Additionally, the online Politico/Morning Consult poll has Democrats leading by 4 points, 45%-41% — after it was tied in June."
Nine days later, on July 31, 2022, a more realistic generic preference was presented by Bonchie in an article "CBS News Poll Provides Red Flag After Red Flag for Democrats."
The article by Bonchie includes this sentence: "Is the Democrat Party on the rebound heading into November’s mid-term elections? If the latest CBS News poll is any indication, the answer is a resounding 'no.'"
That same day, July 31, 2022, another article was published "Strategists: Fake Missouri Poll Underestimates Trump Support in 2024 Primary."
In that article, Matthew Boyle wrote: "Several Republican strategists told Breitbart News on Sunday that a Missouri poll commissioned by campaign operatives associated with Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s U.S. Senate campaign deliberately undercounts former President Donald Trump’s support in an effort to boost Schmitt in the final days of the race."
Second Dot: Secure in the knowledge that U.S. news organizations are entrusted with reporting vote counts and declaring winners, Democrats orchestrated a test run of their election fraud scheme, using an obscure Kalamazoo-based television station in West Michigan.
Details about this insidious test run are included in the article "West Michigan television station says it accidentally posted mock election results."
The article states: "In advance of Michigan’s Tuesday, Aug. 2 primary election, News Channel 3 was conducting a test of its election systems last week. In doing so, the station inadvertently published mock results on WWMT.com. The numbers used were randomly generated and did not reflect actual results."
Here are the images of the fake elections results News Channel 3 posted:
The Michigan Department of State expressed no alarm about the fake results being published ahead of the actual election, which must have pleased the Democrats. When concerned citizens expressed outrage, various media outlets defended the Michigan station. For example, the AP published an article "Release of test election results fuels unfounded fraud claims."
Our sources of news control what we read and see and they have been influencing, manipulating, and controlling us with ease. Now, they have become political operatives and are colluding brazenly with the Democrats to manipulate elections results to favor the Democrats, betraying our trust.
The extent of the unchecked power of the media can be discerned from the article "How Media Organizations Report Election Results in Real Time."
That article exposes how news organizations declare winners based on estimated numbers of votes with no check on their numbers by responsible government election officials, even if those numbers are "mistakes."
Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of every democratic society and a key feature is that each citizen’s vote counts equal.
Joseph Stalin said “[i]t’s not the people who vote that count; it’s the people who count the votes.”
It is imperative that we remove the power to call elections away from the media and put it back where it rightfully belongs--with our state election officials.

The Russian Embassy Just Released A New Video Mocking The West: ‘Time To Move To Russia’ Where There’s ‘Traditional Values, Christianity, No Cancel Culture’
By Alicia Powe | Gateway Pundit
The Russian embassy in Spain released a video on Friday mocking the West and the sanctions it has imposed on the country.
The clip published on the embassy’s Twitter account, called “Time to move to Russia,” touts Russia’s cultural values.
“This is Russia,” a narrator speaking English with a Russian accent says in the 53-second ad. “Delicious cuisine, beautiful women, cheap gas, rich history, world-famous literature, unique architecture, fertile soil, cheap electricity and water, ballet, cheap taxi and delivery, traditional values, Christianity, no cancel culture, hospitality, vodka.”
Russia’s economy, “can withstand thousands of sanctions,” continues the voiceover.
“Time to move to Russia. Don’t delay, winter is coming, ” the viral ad concludes, quoting the ominous line from Game of Thrones.
State-controlled Telegram channels won’t stop bragging about this video. Not sure who is the creator. But wow, just watch it. If the Russians didn’t promote it, I’d think this was a satire. Why do they think this could attract foreigners to move to Russia? “Winter is coming.”
CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE HILARIOUS VIDEO.
The Russian embassy’s reference to winter is also seen as a veiled threat to the West given Russia’s control of much of Europe’s gas supply.
In 2021, Russia supplied the EU with 40 percent of its natural gas and 27 percent of its imported oil.
In June, Russia announced it would reduce natural gas flows through a key European pipeline by 40 percent in Germany.
On Monday, the Russian government double down, announcing it would cut gas to Germany and Europe by an additional 20 percent. As a result, Hanover, Germany turned off the heat, hot water and electricity in public buildings across the city.
“Public fountains are also being switched off to save energy, and there will be no night-time lights on major buildings such as the town hall and museums” the BBC reports.

Americans Ask If Biden Has Body Double After Face Looks Totally Different in 2 Different Vids Posted on Same Day
By Kassandra White | The Western Journal
President Joe Biden looked different in two videos he appeared in on Tuesday, July 26. Above are the images from the two videos.
[Below are some readers' comments:
- Is that an impersonator? Look how narrow-set and beady the eyes are. Does Biden really look like that? Or are they sending out his body double to read the teleprompters at this point?
- The impersonator has a fatter face with no age-related moles, a neater haircut, different shaped ears and rounder eyes.]
In the beginning of his video address of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement, Biden appeared normal as he criticized the Jan. 6 incursion at the United States Capitol.
During the last two minutes, Biden’s pupils appeared heavily dilated.
[A reader's comments:
- Here are the two videos back and forth. Pay attention to his physical appearance and his voice. Again, both supposedly from today, both only a few hours apart. What the hell is happening here? ]
Biden would later appear in an official White House video in which he touted small decreases in the average price of a gallon of gas.
In that speech, Biden appeared more recognizable, with the pupil dilation from his previous video seemingly gone.
The videos were released just hours apart.
Members of the public were quick to point out that Biden looked noticeably different in the second video released on Tuesday, causing some to ask if he had a body double.
One Twitter user ever brought up the point that others in the past used body doubles, so it is not something outside the realm of possibility.
Biden was diagnosed with coronavirus last week, a disease that White House staff have indicated he’s gradually recovering from.
The coronavirus case and his medication for it could explain why Biden’s voice sounded deeper in the first video he released.
It’s entirely possible that White House physicians would prescribe medication for a 79-year-old coronavirus patient that causes pupil dilation.
White House physicians have disclosed that Biden has received a regimen of paxlovid, an anti-viral drug designed to keep high-risk and older patients from developing severe cases that land them in the hospital.
Biden did appear to have recovered in a Wednesday Rose Garden appearance.
Biden disclosed experiencing mild symptoms, such as a runny nose, a dry cough and fatigue, during his bout with coronavirus.
Biden tests positive for COVID in 'rebound' case, doctor says
By Adam Sabes | Fox News
President Biden tested positive for COVID-19 in a "rebound" case on Saturday, according to the White House.
"As described last week, acknowledging the potential for so-called ‘rebound’ COVID positivity observed in a small percentage of patients treated with PAXLOVID the President increased his testing cadence, both to protect people around him and to assure early detection of any return of viral replication," White House Doctor Dr. Kevin O'Connor said.
O'Connor said in the letter that Biden tested negative for COVID-19 on Tuesday evening, Wednesday morning, Thursday morning, and Friday morning, but tested positive on Saturday morning by an antigen test.
The doctor says that the re-infection represents "rebound positivity" and said that Biden has not experienced a reemergence of symptoms, and there's no need to restart treatment.
Biden will, however, begin "strict isolation procedures," according to O'Connor.
Biden tweeted on Saturday afternoon that he will continue working.
"Folks, today I tested positive for COVID again. This happens with a small minority of folks. I’ve got no symptoms but I am going to isolate for the safety of everyone around me. I’m still at work, and will be back on the road soon," Biden said.
Biden tested negative for COVID-19 on Wednesday after contracting the virus last week, prior to the announcement on Saturday afternoon.
A White House official told Fox News that contact tracing is now underway since Biden tested positive for COVID-19 again.
Previously, White House press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that it didn't matter where Biden contracted the coronavirus.
"Look, I don't think that matters, right? I think what matters is we prepared for this moment," Jean-Pierre said on July 21.
He was previously seen at several White House events without a mask since testing negative for COVID-19 on Wednesday, including at a roundtable discussing the economy on Thursday.
Dr. Marc Siegel, Fox News medical analyst and professor of medicine at New York University Langone Medical Center said it's not a good look for President Biden.
"Not a good look for a president who talks about mandates. He has played too loose with this," Siegel said.
Siegel said that Biden should have stayed in isolation longer, stating that he still had mild symptoms.
"Paxlovid rebound for Biden is not a surprise. I was surprised when he ended quarantine after 5 days even with two negative tests because he still clearly had mild symptoms including nasal congestion," Siegel said. "What I think happens is that the Paxlovid stops the virus from reproducing but when it wears off there may still be some particles left and they then start to reproduce again and the test turns positive."
"I think the FDA should consider extending the course to 7-8 days in higher risk cases like the president," Siegel said.

The problem isn’t really Joe Biden. It’s that the supposed “adults in the room” who surround him are children with no self-awareness and a violent allergy to accountability.
A revolt is underway in King Biden’s court. The facade of the Capable Unifier has come undone. As if by magic, a moratorium on noticing Old Joe’s feeble condition has been lifted, and the ruthless machine that pushed the freakish spectacle of his presidency on the country is feigning surprise to find that the Oval Office is occupied by a dementia patient.
Joe Biden has yet to face a midterm referendum, but he is already one of the most unpopular presidents in U.S. history. His own party is abandoning him. A recent New York Times poll found that more than 60 percent of Democrats want Biden to bow out in 2024. Across the board, Biden approval ratings are floating in the 30s.
This day was always going to come, sooner or later. Democrats used every dirty trick in the book to push Biden past the finish line and remove the Bad Orange Man from power, but they never had a plan for what would come after the election. Everything about Biden’s campaign was a cynical sham.
To the undeceived, the signs of Biden’s incapacity were obvious even then. Biden spent much of the campaign sequestered at home. An irresponsible, overtly political media campaigned on his behalf. They refused to cover his mental decline, covered up his family’s treacherous, salacious dealings with China, the evidence of which is now undeniable, and portrayed Biden as a saint, the John Paul II of “democracy.”
Of course, this was all a load of poppycock. Americans are well-acquainted now with the real Biden. He is a nasty, corrupt, tired old man.
But the establishment rallied behind Biden for lack of alternatives, and this factor hasn’t really changed. Kamala Harris, who rose to her current station through one of the more spectacular examples of affirmative action in history and an infamous act of “poontronage,” is a talentless buffoon who is even more inept and unpopular than Biden. Then there’s Pete Buttigieg, the lab-created striver freak from South Bend. Who else? Bernie Sanders? He has shown himself to be as malleable as the rest of the machine’s cogs.
Democrats are currently preoccupied with finding somebody to replace their shambling puppet ruler, but it might do them some good to ponder this question: why aren’t there any leaders on the Left? There is nobody at the top with any spine, nobody who has the nation’s best interest at heart. A problem this deeply rooted can’t be fixed by swapping Biden for another shill of the oligarchy who has a little more energy.
The globalist institutions in which the liberal “elite” live create empty suits who lack conviction and loyalty to the nation. The system rewards those who kowtow to it and readily obey its soul-warping demands of uniformity. The carbon copy “elites” it produces are obsessed with power and the means of preserving it. When they make mistakes, which is often, their first instinct is to moralize and blame the people. In the name of social justice, they destroy those with competence, originality, and daring and replace them with unqualified people who will take marching orders. Those who rise to the top are followers, slaves to fashion and the day’s absurd dogma. Biden, a former “moderate” whose campaign relied on a misleading perception of familiarity, is no exception.
The only way for a white man like Joe Biden to succeed in the Democratic Party is to apologize for existing. Who finds such a man inspiring? Who would march into battle with him? Good rulers know how to give a speech that uplifts their people, but today’s occupational “elites” are barely literate in English.
Harris is a particularly rich font of the “wisdom” of her class. The system has trained her and others like her to distinguish themselves not by worthy acts of public service (a term they have stolen for their own selfish purposes), but by adopting a freakish, nonsensical language that alienates average people (“Latinx,” “birthing people”) even as it exposes the rulers’ lack of competence. They discredit themselves and degrade the public a little more each time they open their mouths.
The problem isn’t Biden, it’s that the so-called “adults in the room” who surround him are children with no self-awareness and a violent allergy to accountability. They are incapable of feigning interest in what concerns normal people, and the public is beginning to sense this indifference. The unusually hostile, contemptuous tone of the Biden Administration is a novelty in our politics and a sign of deep insecurity. The “elites” know that they are not legitimate and that their own corruption is what powers the enduring political appeal of Donald Trump, who appears to be on a glide path to the White House in 2024 despite the establishment’s efforts to make him into a pariah, or even a political prisoner.
Biden doesn’t get a pass for his role in destroying the country because of his feeble condition. What he’s doing at the southern border is treasonous. On some level, he is aware of his responsibility. He did not have to run for the presidency, but he was compelled by his own hunger for power. The “elites” should have stopped him. That’s what they would have done if they loved the country, instead of degrading it with this charade.
