The Stryker Corporation and the Arcus Foundation: Billionaires behind the new 'LGBT' movement

Billionaire 'philanthropists' have been driving the change from LGB to LBGT. The Stryker Corporation and their Arcus Foundation is just one example.

Not long ago, the gay rights movement was a small group of people struggling to follow their dispositions within a larger heterosexual culture. Gays and lesbians were underdogs, vastly outnumbered and loosely organized, sometimes subject to discrimination and abuse. Their story was tragic, their suffering dramatized by AIDS and Rock Hudson, Brokeback Mountain and Matthew Shepard.

Today's movement, however, looks nothing like that band of persecuted outcasts. The LGBT rights agenda — note the addition of "T" — has become a powerful, aggressive force in American society. Its advocates stand at the top of media, academia, the professions, and, most important, Big Business and Big Philanthropy. Consider the following case.

'Grandfather' has become a 'problematic' word

Language has become the main terrain on which the culture wars sweeping the Western world are played out.

Arguably, just about every word and phrase can become an unexpected target of linguistic policing. Who would have imagined that it would no longer be acceptable to use words like "grandfather," "spirit animal," "brown bags," "cakewalk," "jerry-rigged," "Sherpa," "mantra," "totem pole," or "housekeeping"? These are just some of the entries on a long list of problematic words and phrases contained in the Inclusive Language Guide published by the University of Washington.

Any sensible person reading this guide will be struck by its surreal tone. The reader learns that it is imperative to stop using phrases like "raining cats and dogs." The authors of the guide are obsessively driven in their attempt to justify why reasonable and hitherto uncontroversial words must no longer be used. For example, it justifies the need to abolish the word "housekeeping" on the grounds that "in reference to office work, this language can feel gendered."

Comment: The preening woke attempting to dictate to the world how one is permitted to speak woud be hilarious, if it weren't so horrifying.

Orwell's prescient 1984 nails it:
"Don't you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thought-crime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten. . . . The process will still be continuing long after you and I are dead. Every year fewer and fewer words, and the range of consciousness always a little smaller. Even now, of course, there's no reason or excuse for commiting thought-crime. It's merely a question of self-discipline, reality-control. But in the end there won't be any need even for that. . . . Has it ever occcured to you, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?"

Long Island judge rules Gov. Hochul's mask mandate as 'unlawful'

A Long Island judge ruled against Gov. Kathy Hochul's controversial mask mandate on Monday — in a move that could lead to the lifting of similar orders in schools across the state.

Nassau County Supreme Court Justice Thomas Rademaker threw out a Nov. 24 rule issued by Health Commissioner Mary Bassett that led Hochul to order businesses without mandatory vaccination policies to require that all workers, customers and guests wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Nassau County Supreme Court Justice Thomas Rademaker said the rule amounted to "a law that was promulgated and enacted unlawfully by an Executive branch state agency, and therefore void and unenforceable as a matter of law."

And as a result, Rademaker said, the mask mandate Hochul announced on Dec. 10 "must fail as violative of the State Administrative Procedure Act."

In a virtual talk scheduled for February 1, students at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, will hear how "professionalism," understood here as codes of dress, behavior and etiquette in the workplace, is actually racist.

The university's website explains that "the term 'professionalism' has at times been used to silence and marginalize people of color, when attributes of appearance, language or interactions that have nothing to do with job knowledge or constructive collegial relationships are labeled as 'unprofessional.'"

"In this context, so-called professionalism is coded language, a construct that upholds institutional racist policies and excluding practices."

The American dream - 'You have to be asleep to believe it'

American Dream

The American Dream, where once upon a time, was when a parent saved to raise their children to have a perpetual better life than they had. Parents would save for their college education and they pushed their children to achieve. My father began saving the day I was born for my college education and law school.

Americans, no matter the circumstances of their birth, all shared freedom, opportunity, the right to build private businesses and enterprises, and a republic - "Representative Democracy." We raised our children believing that they had a legitimate opportunity to live a better life than we did predicated upon their own skills and intelligence. We tried to instill a good work ethic, and that would provide good fortune for the future ahead.
American Way

But in today's world, our politicians have sought to replace parents all under the guise of socialism. Individualism, we are now told from the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is evil and we are now to become just part of the collective hive. The ruling elite has stolen the wealth of the nation and its citizens while pretending this is somehow for our benefit. This was not an accident, but a plan implemented over many decades in the dark corners of the mind of Klaus Schwab.

US Navy F-35C fighter jet CRASHES into USS Carl Vinson in South China Sea, 7 injured

F-35C USS Carl Vinson

Seven U.S. military personnel were hurt on Monday when an F-35C warplane had a 'landing mishap' on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson in the South China Sea and the pilot ejected, the U.S Navy said.

A Navy statement said the incident happened during 'routine flight operations' in the South China Sea.

The status of the $94 million fighter jet was unclear.

'The pilot safely ejected from the aircraft and was recovered via U.S. military helicopter,' it said.

'The pilot is in stable condition. There were seven total sailors injured.'

The statement said three of personnel required evacuation to a medical facility in Manila and four were treated by on-board the carrier and released.

Comment: The seemingly increasing occurrence of these crashes and failures in recent years is rather telling as to the state of the West. However, perhaps more importantly, what with the West's escalation of aggression in Ukraine against Russia, and the US increasing its military presence in the South China Sea, 'mishaps' like this could, potentially, have devastating consequences: Also check out SOTT radio's: NewsReal: Why You Should Question Media Reports About China 'Causing Covid' And 'Invading Taiwan'

Freedom Convoy: Truckers angry over vaccine mandates roll toward Canada's capital in protest

Trucks line up to cross the U.S. border in Sarnia, Ontario, after the COVID-19 vaccine mandate took effect.
'I'm literally going to lose my truck, my house, my car, my savings,' says unvaccinated owner-operator.

Truck drivers in Canada are slow-rolling in convoys across the country to protest the COVID-19 vaccine mandate at the U.S. border, with plans to converge at the capital, Ottawa, on Saturday.

Among them will be Ontario owner-operator Brigitte Belton, who until recently regularly moved freight between the U.S. and Canada. Since Saturday, she and other drivers who haven't been vaccinated against COVID-19 have been barred from crossing the border.

Comment:




From National Post:
Truck Convoy supporters would be correct in their contention that the protest isn't attracting nearly as much official attention compared to prior protests that have been numerically much smaller, such as the pro-Wet'suwet'en blockades that dominated the national discourse in early 2020. Only on Monday did the convoy first receive acknowledgement from major party leaders. Conservative Leader Erin O'Toole dodged a question on the convoy, while Prime Minister Justin Trudeau obliquely mentioned the protests while accusing Conservatives of "fear mongering" by linking trucker vaccine mandates to supply chain disruptions.

Actually, one of the only major organizations to comment on the protest has been the Canadian Trucking Alliance, who denounced it . The CTA - which previously opposed vaccine mandates on truckers - is now advising truckers to comply and "strongly disapproves" of protests to the contrary . "This regulation is not changing so, as an industry, we must adapt and comply with this mandate," wrote the group in a Saturday statement.

The View pushes the 'new normal': 'I may never...feel comfortable without a mask'

the view
Whoopi Goldberg went on a rant against Bill Maher on "The View," lambasting him for criticizing vaccine and mask mandates. Co-host Sara Haines went on to say that she may never feel comfortable again unless she's wearing a mask.

Goldberg calls mainstream talk show host Maher "out on the fringe" at the start of her rant: "People on the fringe ... who are speaking out like this, and over the weekend, Bill Maher made a case for people who are vaccinated, boosted, and have been following the rules since all of this started. Take a look."

A clip of Maher's show then rolls, showing him making a joke about people "scanning your head" as if you were a "bunch of bananas," and then saying that the people in favor of all these COVID-19 rules are the ones who are "bananas."
