Why Biden Dietary Expert Is Clueless on Obesity

The federal government gluttonously consumes 31¢ of every dollar Americans create. In return, we get nothing, because the government is useless. It doesn’t even defend the border from foreign invasion. To grasp how useless it is, consider that there is an obesity epidemic and that Fatima Cody Stanford is a member of Joe Biden’s 2025 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee:

Stanford, a doctor specializing in obesity medicine at Mass General Health in Boston, claims diet and exercise have little impact on the disease that affects nearly half of all Americans, so what does she think people should do about it?

Embrace it, because like sexual deviants (according to liberal ideology), fat people are born that way.

The number one cause of obesity is genetics,” Stanford told CBS’ Lesley Stahl.

60 Minutes specializes in catering to those with an excessive appetite for liberal idiocy. Yet not even Stahl could refrain from a skeptical expression:

You might just as easily claim that smoking cigarettes is caused by genetics. Proneness to addiction is surely biological. However, smokers are not a preferred identity group according to cultural Marxist ideology, as the morbidly obese now are.

Stanford elaborated during the interview to claim that an overwhelming majority of U.S. doctors hold a bias toward obese patients.

Doctors fail to affirm their identity by recommending they lose weight. Such fatphobia constitutes not merely bigotry but oppression, according to Democrat ideology.

According to a USDA press release,

“The 2025 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee will examine the relationship between diet and health across all life stages and will use a health equity lens throughout its evidence review to ensure factors such as socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, and culture are described and considered to the greatest extent possible…”

Since there are always going to be fat people, maybe Pfizer can help impose equity with a mandatory drug to make everyone obese.

Obesity is a risk factor for many serious diseases, prominently including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Whatever the ailment, obesity will make you more likely to get it and make it more severe when you do. It will take years off your life. Yet obesity has its advantages; by driving up the mortality rate, it helped our rulers hype Covid as a life-threatening disease.

In case you are wondering how someone as clueless as Fatima Cody Stanford could be a doctor, much less a member of a federal committee empowered to tell us how to live, the mentality exemplified by a surgery internship program at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine may help explain:

On their website, Loyola claims that the internship “is intended to encourage medical students from racial and ethnic groups that are underrepresented in medicine to consider pursuing a career in academic surgery.”

Applications are limited to those who identify as “African American/Black, Hispanic/Latinx, American Indian/Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander.” Notably absent from the list are Asians and white students.

It isn’t just Loyola:

In an interview with the Daily Caller, [Do No Harm] senior fellow and University of Michigan professor emeritus Mark Perry pointed out that Loyola’s actions should not be viewed in a vacuum, rather they are “representative of the illegal discrimination taking place at almost every US medical school on the basis of race, color, or national origin.”

Under liberal hegemony, the primary purpose of healthcare is the same as for journalism, education, entertainment, et cetera: to impose moonbattery. That is the only effective purpose of our cripplingly expensive federal government.

Shocking Follow-up to Shocking Pfizer Video

It was almost unbelievable when top Pfizer executive Jordon Trishton Walker spilled to a Project Veritas reporter during what he thought was a gay date that Pfizer has been at the least conspiring to conduct “directed evolution” (i.e., gain of function) research to mutate viruses so as to profit from the vaccines, daring fate to subject us to another Wuhan Institute of Virology type leak (transcript here). The follow-up video is still more astonishing:

Before you let the authorities bully you into letting them stick something from Pfizer into your arm, consider that this messed-up maniac is their director of worldwide R&D strategic operations and mRNA scientific planning.

The global mega-corporation is so powerful that this is still not regarded as a news story. Tucker Carlson is aghast at the near-total media blackout:

If anything could be a bigger scandal than Pfizer conspiring to create new viruses Wuhan style to profit from vaccines, it would be the liberal establishment media refusing to report it. This might help explain the blackout:

Again we are reminded that Big Media will only tell you what is in ruling class interests to tell you.

Note that Walker’s alarming instinct was to call on the police to do something about Project Veritas, despite being the one who committed assault. It is not too late to stop what’s happening to this country, because James O’Keefe and Tucker Carlson are not yet in an FBI basement getting their fingernails pulled out on orders from the people who control Pfizer.

White Liberal Attitude Toward Blacks

White liberals’ attitude toward blacks is hard to figure out. They seem to worship as deities blacks they select to represent the race (e.g., George Floyd). Yet they also regard blacks as inferior, or they would not presume to dictate how they are allowed to think.

The welfare state and its predictable consequences are illustrative. Blacks are treated as helpless dependents and manipulated into living in squalor. Yet white liberals who made cash oblations to Black Lives Matter must understand at some level that the welfare-bred lowlife looting in the name of George Floyd would slit their throats for the spare change in their purses.

A couple of stories sum up the condescendingly abusive yet reverently submissive attitude white liberals have toward blacks:

Not even Sigmund Freud could come up with a theory to explain the relationship. All we know for sure is that it is nothing to be proud of.

We Appear to Be at War With Russia

As you have probably heard, even as the nation lurches toward fiscal collapse, Biden is sending dozens of outlandishly expensive Abrams tanks to the repressive corruptocrats running Ukraine.

Via Free Beacon:

The United States announced on Wednesday it will supply Ukraine with 31 advanced M1 Abrams tanks worth $400 million in a matter of months, a decision that helped break a diplomatic logjam with Germany over how best to help Kyiv in its war against Russia.

Over 500 other types of armored vehicle are also on the way to Ukraine complements of whoever is left holding the bag for the USA’s debt.

Even Joe Biden grasps the implications. Last year, he stated that similar action would start World War III:

So far as we know, there won’t be American crews just yet — although Biden has implied otherwise. The learning curve on an Abrams is so steep that Ukrainians probably won’t be proficient with them before the war is over.

Germany’s leftist Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock provides confirmation that we are at war:

Cornering an animal is dumb. Cornering an animal that holds the world’s largest nuclear arsenal goes beyond dumb.

It’s as if the moonbats in the driver’s seat have realized the wheels are coming off due to their own irresponsibility and incompetence so they may as well steer the bus over the edge of a cliff to distract us.

Satanic Statue Atop New York City Courthouse

We have concrete confirmation. Our moonbat rulers are hostile to innocence and virtue because there is something satanic about them:

The new eight-foot-tall golden statue by Pakistani American artist Shahzia Sikander now stands on the roof of the state courthouse in New York’s Flatiron district next to previous statues of respected lawmakers Moses, Confucius and Zoroaster.

The “NOW” statute, with curling braids and tentacle-like arms rises from a lotus flower, was created to pay homage to Ruth Bader Ginsberg and her fight for abortion. The statue is adorned with the late Supreme Court Justice’s signature lace collar.

Sikander said the statue is part of an “urgent and necessary cultural reckoning underway as New York reconsiders traditional representations of power in public spaces and recasts civic structures to better reflect 21st-century social mores.”

Sikander confirms that the twisting hair is meant to represent horns. As LifeNews notes,

Images used by Satanists and The Satanic Temple often depict Satan with goat-like horns.

Still more satanic than the statue is what Sikander means by “21st-century social mores.” When our mores consist of demonic moonbattery, civilization is lost; all we can do is await God’s judgment.

Shocking Undercover Pfizer Interview

At first, it seemed Pfizer was our savior, providing a vaccine to a deadly disease. But as the Covid saga continues to unfold, a different picture emerges. Presenting Jordon Trishton Walker, Pfizer Director of Research and Development–Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning, who explains how “directed evolution” could allow Pfizer to capitalize on preemptive vaccines to diseases that will not exist until Pfizer creates them, Wuhan Institute of Virology style:

Covid certainly will be a “cash cow” for some for the foreseeable future. As Walker states, there is a “revolving door” between Big Pharma and Big Government. This provides the people on both sides of the door with what they want: money and power, respectively.

Walker doesn’t come off like someone who would hold such an important position, but if Kamala Harris can climb to VP and Ketanji Brown Jackson can serve on the Supreme Court, anything is possible in the age of Affirmative Action run amok. The reckless pursuit of “diversity” could have resulted in Pfizer hiring someone dumb enough to spill the secret recipe.

Big Pharma and Big Government are not the only crucial components of the corrupt establishment. Big Media will be called upon to play an important part by suppressing this bombshell story:

Whether this can be suppressed remains to be seen.

Alleged Sexual Exploitation at Austin High School

As noted previously,

Given that education has been subordinated to liberal indoctrination — prominently including the inculcation of depraved sexual attitudes — it is hardly surprising that deviants who are sexually attracted to children are increasingly drawn to teaching.

A lawsuit from woke Austin is illustrative:

The lawsuit was filed on Friday, Jan. 20, by three former students at James Bowie High School in Austin. The same alumni and six others also initially sued Austin Independent School District in the fall of 2022.

Bowie and his fellow heroes did not die at the Alamo for this:

Diane Elizabeth “Betsy” Cornwell, the longtime theater director at the school, was placed on paid administrative leave following the first lawsuit as the district began investigating, the Austin American-Statesman reported in October.

During theater production rehearsals, Cornwell forced the students “to engage in open-mouth kissing, groping and simulated sexual intercourse,” according to the lawsuit. These ”intimacy sessions,’ the former students say, “were nothing more than choreographed sexual assaults.”

Some of the former students said Cornwell was “aroused” during the rehearsals and at one point yelled, “More, more, more!” as scene partners were lying on the floor and kissing, the lawsuit states.

She appears to carry some weight at James Bowie High.

Cornwell has been the director of the school’s theater program — the Starlight Theatre Company — since 1988. The school’s fine arts center was named after her in August…

That outrage inspired former students to sue.

The nine students, who attended the high school between 2004 and 2019, allege Cornwell subjected them to “inappropriate touching; inappropriate sexual comments; harmful and abusive language; assault; battery; emotional and psychological abuse and manipulation; allowing sexual assaults to happen under her direction; declining to remove or otherwise discipline perpetrators of same; and her provision of drugs to at least one student.”

It appears educrats have had Cornwell’s back:

Multiple students complained to the district about Cornwell, who they say later targeted and embarrassed them by playing phone messages from parents complaining, according to the federal lawsuit.

The cleanup required will have to extend far beyond Starlight Theatre Company.

Depleted US Military Promises Equipment to Enemies

Because the country is going insane, inviting a massive invasion and then refusing to defend the border are evidently not sufficient to get Joe Biden and his handlers tried for treason. Maybe this will suffice: in the name of picking a fight with nuclear-armed scapegoat Russia over the irrelevant conflict in Ukraine, Biden et al. have offered to supply military equipment to some of our worst enemies, including the Marxist regimes in Cuba and Venezuela.

Via Independent Sentinel:

U.S. SouthCom Commander General Laura Richardson spoke to the Atlantic Council on January 19th. She explained that the Biden administration offered Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, and six other Latin American nations U.S. military equipment if they’ll give old Russian weapons to Ukraine.

If they will give outlandishly expensive Abrams tanks to the tyrannical corruptocrats running Ukraine, maybe Miguel Diaz-Canel and Nicolas Maduro can expect some too. It would be trivial compared to the $billions in US military equipment Biden gifted to our Taliban enemies after they provided a base for the 9/11 attacks.

Meanwhile,

To date, the U.S. military has provided a “staggering” amount of military hardware and munitions to Ukraine in its defense against Russia’s invasion, amounting to more than $27 billion. This U.S. support has included over 1 million rounds of 155 mm howitzer ammunition. …

An in-depth study conducted by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) euphemistically described the U.S. military’s own remaining stockpiles of the 155 mm howitzer rounds, Javelin anti-tank missiles, and Stinger anti-aircraft missiles as a result of providing so many, so quickly to Ukraine as “limited.” …

The CSIS study explains that “limited” means that “there would be risks” in the form of degradations to military “unit training,” which might become “more difficult” due to insufficient munitions inventories. There would also be other, more strategic risks in the form of degraded “support” for “war plans,” which might include a Chinese invasion of Taiwan…

His ChiCom benefactors must be pleased with Joe Biden.

UK Wind Farms Paid Not to Produce Electricity

There is great news in the historic transition to green energy. British authorities have found a way to make wind farms profitable. Owners of the monstrosities will be paid to do what they do best: not produce electricity.

Via Scotland Against Spin:

Between 4.30pm and 6pm on Tuesday, wind farms were paid about £65,000 to stop producing enough electricity to power 50,000 homes for a day, according to data from the UK Wind Curtailment Monitor.

At the same time, households were being asked to switch off their devices to help save electricity, amid concerns from National Grid ESO, the legally separate part of the National Grid which balances supply and demand, that it would not have sufficient energy supply.

The idea is to prevent the total blackouts that will characterize Europe’s alternative energy future.

This isn’t the first time British subjects have paid the wind farms to do nothing. Whereas usually wind turbines don’t produce enough energy, sometimes they produce too much. From last summer:

[T]he UK was forced to pay £78million to wind farms in the last year alone to cover the costs of switching off wind turbines when it is too windy.

Meanwhile, replacement generators received £429million bringing the total cost up to around £500million.

Due to inadequate storage infrastructure like batteries in place, wind turbines have to be turned off in order to prevent the national Grid from being overloaded.

As has been obvious for some time now, wind is not a viable alternative to fossil fuels and nuclear energy.

A handful of scoundrels with political connections are getting rich off green energy. The rest of us are getting screwed. What we tolerate, we will get more of.

White Power Graffiti in Idaho Is Hate Hoax

It isn’t easy to find the white supremacism that liberals claim is endemic. Let’s try Idaho:

The words “White Power” were found spray-painted on the side of Caldwell High School last Thursday, two days after the high school held a “Brown Pride” protest, the Idaho Statesman reported. The Tuesday protest was held in support of a student who was told to remove a hooded sweatshirt reading “Brown Pride” because other people reportedly found it “racist,” the outlet reported.

According to Caldwell High School Principal Anita Wilson, the “Brown Pride” shirt was forbidden not because it was thoughtcrime like a “White Pride” shirt would be, but because “Caldwell has had a gang problem before, and ‘Brown Pride’ is associated with gangs.”

Despite the likelihood that it was a hate hoax, authorities could be counted on to clutch their pearls theatrically over the “White Power” graffiti. Caldwell Chief of Police Rex Ingram proclaimed that “we will not tolerate hate in our city.”

Anyone with a clue knew how this would end:

On Friday, police provided an update that the graffiti vandalism is believed to be a “diversion tactic” used by one of the Hispanic gangs in the area to avoid being caught by police, and “was possibly done to exploit the recent protest at Caldwell High School.” …

“I am proud of the investigative effort given by our detectives in this matter, who quickly determined this incident to not be a hate crime,” Ingram said.

Please welcome Caldwell, Idaho Hispanic gangs to the Hate Hoax List.
