The claim that border patrol agents on horses whipped Haitian migrants illegally crossing the border spread like wildfire, pushed by the media and Democrats. But it was a lie, not just disputed, an outright hoax.
On top of all the other evidence, the photographer who snapped the now-viral photo confirmed there was no whipping:
The photographer behind now-famous images depicting Border Patrol agents on horseback appearing to chase migrants with whips says things are not exactly what they seem when it comes to his photos. . . .
. . . "Not only were whips not used, the reason horses were used is because that’s how border patrol patrols in terrain that is rough. Horses were not even used in an agressive manner, there’s no indication anyone was injured.
"The whip lie should have died within hours, but it’s still going on, and its being spread by Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and the head of DHS, Alejandro Mayorkas, all of whom explicitly or implicitly compared it to slavery.". . .
"In August, a slew of healthcare groups gave their employees deadlines to take COVID-19 vaccines or face termination. Although these mandates on paper allowed for religious and medical exemptions, in multiple cases, when exemptions proved hard to come by, employees facing threats of termination resorted to lawsuits to hold onto their jobs.
"How did these lawsuits turn out, and who eventually submitted to the will of the other: the healthcare group or the plaintiffs?". . .
“Joe Biden claims the U.S. Constitution empowers a president to mandate vaccines. He is wrong. Under the Constitution, states, not the federal government have that power,” Brooks said in a statement, challenging anyone to “identify a provision in the U.S. Constitution that unambiguously gives Joe Biden or the federal government the authority he arrogantly claims.”. . .

Democrats continue the push to persecute the unvaccinated "Americans discovered on Wednesday that, on Saturday, Democrats had slipped something awful into their $3.5-trillion ironically named "Build Back Better Bill." If the bill becomes law (and the only thing currently stopping it is that Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin are saying "no"), employers can be charged as much as $700,000 per unvaccinated employee. This is madness.
. . ."As the Democrats get more shrill and more vindictive, increasing numbers of people are going to assume that Democrats are acting from either insanity or malevolence. Either is a terrible choice for a once free country's political leadership.

"Online, red pill is especially used among anti-feminist and white supremacist groups to refer to “waking up” to the truth that women and liberal politics are oppressing men and white people.
"WHERE DOES RED PILL COME FROM?
"Red pill comes from the popular and influential 1999 sci-fi action film, The Matrix. There’s a scene early on in the movie in which the main character, Neo, is offered two pills: a red one and a blue one. The red pill represents an awakening, but one that could be difficult and painful. Neo’s world will be changed uncomfortably if he takes the red pill, but he’ll be made aware of the truth of the world. The blue pill represents comfort and security. If he takes the blue pill, he’ll continue to live in blissful ignorance.
"The concept has a precedent in the 1990 science fiction film Total Recall. In that film, one character offers another a red pill, said to be a symbol of his “desire to return to reality.” There’s no blue pill presented, however."....
However, MRC applied this 4.6 percent drop in Biden votes to the most closely-contested states and concluded that a knowledge of the Biden-China corruption scandal among Biden voters alone would have turned Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin red, giving Trump a 289-vote margin in the Electoral College and handing him the presidency.

"In many if not most of the cases, Presidents, Deans, and other administrators were aiders and abetters.
"But of all the cases, the attack on Prof. Gordon Klein at UCLA’s Anderson Business School was perhaps the most insane – truly other-worldly.
"Prof. Klein’s alleged offense was that he insisted on treating black students equally. He refused a request by a white student to allow black students preferential treatment on final exams. Because such a racial preference would violate UCLA’s anti-discrimination policies (and maybe even the law), Klein refused. Students then launched a defamatory campaign against Prof. Klein, and the cowards who run UCLA’s Anderson School capitulated, denouncing and suspending Klein. He eventually was reinstated — because he did absolutely nothing wrong — but not before his reputation and career were severely damaged.
"We covered Prof. Klein’s situation initially in these posts:
Newsom Survives CA Recall – But What Happens Next? - Liberty Nation. . . "The narrative from the very beginning of the Newsom campaign was that this was a “Republican recall” and that the forces of Trump were hard at work in the Golden State. Quite how true this rhetoric has been remains to be proven. Democrats understand that Donald Trump is a divisive figure for their voting base and one that can ensure a loyal turnout. Rather than running on the governor’s record – as cited in his victory speech – it seems Newsom et al. were positioning themselves as the anti-Trump vanguard.". . .

"The Biden administration has created crisis after crisis and instead of focusing on fixing those issues, Romney has been spending his time helping liberals make a movie aimed at attacking Republicans.
"The movie, called “Veep,” is an inaccurate Hollywood film aimed at painting Republicans as evil conspiracy theorists.
"The main topic of the movie is former Vice President Dick Cheney, who served under President George W. Bush.
"Romney said, “Leaving Americans behind and leaving our Afghan friends behind, who worked with us, would put upon us and will put upon us a moral stain.

Marine Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, the officer who went viral for blasting the military's leadership amid the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, has been sent to the brig, according to a report.
"First a psych eval and now brig confinement. It appears the powers that be are out to make an example of him — which he astutely predicted. On the psych eval, it was tragic that the Marine leadership went "full Soviet" on him.". . .
"After several of his videos went viral, his superiors banned him from posting on social media, but the marine continued to do so before handing in a letter of resignation on August 31 - the final day of US occupation of Afghanistan.
"Now, his father has revealed that the former Lieutenant Colonel has been sent to military prison, known as 'the brig', where he is being held as he awaits a military hearing for breaking the gag order set by his superior officers.
"'All our son did is ask the questions that everybody was asking themselves, but they were too scared to speak out loud,' said Stuart Scheller Sr.
"'He was asking for accountability, but they had a gag order on him and asked him not to speak.
" 'He did, and they incarcerated him.' ". . .
UPDATE: The Wrong Man Is In The Brig – Put Biden On Trial -(andmagazine.com)"Scheller was up until recently a Marine battalion commander. He was relieved of his command following a series of public statements he made chastising military leadership for the manifest incompetence shown during the Afghan withdrawal that led directly to the deaths of 13 Marines. After his relief Scheller announced he would resign from the service and continued to speak out – in apparent violation of direct orders to stop discussing his concerns publicly.
"In one video, posted on September 16th, Scheller stated hisintentionto charge Marine Gen. Kenneth McKenzie Jr., head of U.S. Central Command, with dereliction of duty. In the video, Scheller said he was continuing to speak out even though it could jeopardize a deal the Marine Corps had offered him, under which he would accept nonjudicial punishment, resign his commission, forfeit his military pension, and accept a general discharge under honorable conditions rather than face a court-martial.
" 'I have read the entire UCMJ [Uniform Code of Military Justice] in the last two weeks of my purgatory – all of the punitive articles – and it turns out that all military officers are subject to the UCMJ,” Scheller said in the video. “Because it appears to me that no general officers are willing to hold each other accountable, I am submitting charges against Gen. McKenzie for his bad assumptions – not because I’m vindictive, but because the senior leaders need to be held accountable to the same standard as us.' ”. . .
Monica Showalter"As Joe Biden was creating his border mess in Del Rio, Texas — drawing in thousands of illegal migrants, releasing them scot-free into the interior of the country, and then blaming the Border Patrol for doing their jobs — it wasn't just border town residents and U.S. citizens further inland who were watching the hideous spectacle on television. Turns out Mexico's cartels were watching, too, and have decided that Biden has handed them the perfect tool.
"According to independent journalist Lara Logan:
BREAKING: Acc to law enfcmt in RGV Texas, BP agents advised latest Intel from cartels: after Biden response to horse patrol, cartels ordered their smugglers to force BP to react/appear to use excessive force & record. Cartels will push to media to force more agents off the line.
. . .
Joe Biden is one of those craven leaders who's signaled to cartels that he has no intention of backing his own government enforcing the laws of the country and is easily diverted by "racist" narratives. The end result is that Border Patrol agents are now on their own, and cartels have noticed. They'd like more racial incidents, the better to beef up profits. Any Border Patrol agent who sticks his neck out to protect the country from an illegal foreign invasion will be subject to a cartel-provoked incident framed as racism by the press and then get the back of Joe's hand. As the old fool put it: "Those people will pay."
