Just 22 percent of Americans have a positive opinion of the U.S. government.

The Pew Research Center released data from their American Trends Panel survey on Thursday, which found only 22 percent of adults have a positive opinion of the federal government.

Even Democrats, the most fanatically pro-government extremist segment of the population, report declining sentiments toward the federal government. Just 32% of Democrats report positive views of the federal government. And only around one-in-ten Republicans (11%) see the federal government favorably.


Pew reports, “State governments get mixed ratings: 50% of adults have a favorable opinion and 49% have an unfavorable view. This reflects a 4-point decline in favorability since 2022 and a 9-point decline since 2019.”

New York Times worked with Pentagon to find Government “leaker”

Some 50 years ago the New York Times heroically published “The Pentagon Papers,” including various classified documents showing the US Defense Department was lying about casualties in the Vietnam War.

The US military was actually suffering greater casualties–and achieving less success–than the Pentagon had been saying.

FAST FORWARD to 2024. Today’s New York Times is a reverse image of its former self. Today’s New York Times has been WORKING WITH the Pentagon to republish the government’s narratives regarding conflicts in Ukraine and Israel.

And now there is evidence that the New York Times has been working as a secret government spy agency, helping the government track down and identify leakers of government information.

The Times had worked “feverishly” to assist the Pentagon in identifying Teixeira.

“In an odd twist,” according to American Institute for Economic Research, “the Times had gone from publishing state secrets to helping the government conceal them.”


 The documents “suggest that the Ukrainian forces are in more dire straits than their government has acknowledged publicly,” the New York Times admits. The Associated Press, meanwhile, noted that “at least one of the documents shows estimates of Russian troops deaths in the Ukraine war that are significantly lower than numbers publicly stated by US officials. Under a section titled ‘Total Assessed Losses,’ one document lists 16,000-17,500 Russian casualties and up to 71,000 Ukrainian casualties.”

This is a very different picture than what Americans have been told by military officials. For example, Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, publicly stated Russia had suffered “significantly well over” 100,000 casualties in Ukraine.

Government BBC radio tries valiantly to debunk the true fact that Arctic ice recently measured its highest extent in 21 years

London. March 2024. According to the Daily Sceptic, “Arctic sea ice on January 8th stood at its highest level in 21 years.” Citing the U.S.-based National Snow and Ice Data Centre (NSIDC), the report indicated “that sea ice recorded its third highest monthly gain in the modern 45-year record.”

Further, according to the science blog No Tricks Zone,, “the reading up to January 8th has now far exceeded the average for the years 2011-2020,” and also exceeded “the average for the years 2001-2010.”

The British government’s BBC radio show “More or Less”  ‘fact checked’ the Daily Sceptic’s report. The government show’s researchers were forced to admit that that sea ice in the Arctic had soared to its highest level for 21 years on January 8th of 2024. But immediately after confirming the Daily Sceptic’s claim was TRUE, the BBC reporters argued that the information was “cherry picked.”

Writing for The Daily Sceptic and WattsUpWiththat.com, Chris Morrison states that “[t]The ‘fact check’ did little more than confirm the widely held suspicion that many BBC programmes are now infected with a need to crowbar a climate catastrophe narrative into broadcast messages.”

New York government shuts down another prominent antigovernment website–Vdare.com

Governments everywhere are ramping up efforts to silence antigovernment, conservative, or libertarian speech and ideas. The US government has spent millions of dollars on censorship efforts in the past five years.

Now Letitia James, the Attorney General of New York has launched a fishing expedition lawsuit against the prominent Vdare.com website. The site, founded by Peter Brimelow, features lots of conservative content and often focuses on immigration issues.

This is more lawfare aimed at destroying or silencing voices who question the government. And now Brimelow writes that Vdare.com may soon fold and surrender the site.

The website is now being fined $250 per day for “contempt.” Brimelow writes that “On March 27, 2024, in another of her lightning-fast NYAG James-compliant rulings, New York State Supreme Court Judge Sabrina Kraus held us in Contempt of Court because we have not yet complied (because we were fighting it) with her January 23, 2023 order that we meet NYAG James’ massive and crippling subpoena demands.

FBI is amping up home visits to chat with people about their Facebook posts

Jim Hoft of The Gateway Pundit is out with a terrifying news story about the FBI visiting people at their homes to talk about Facebook posts.

A muslim woman named Rolla Abdeljawad was visited at her home in Stillwater, Oklahoma by two men in plain clothes claiming to be FBI agents. The “agents” questioned Abdeljawad about her recent Facebook post.

The post was NOT “threatening,” pornographic, or otherwise unlawful. It was apparently a post about ISIS being fake or perhaps ISIS being controlled by US or Israeli intelligence.

The crusading Jim Hoft reports on a number of other similar encounters by people with FBI agents in recent weeks.

Apparently, the visitors have been confirmed as FBI agents and admitted that they regularly visit people to warn them about their social media information.

This seems to be associated with increasing government operations to censor and silence antigovernment information on social media.

Martin Kulldorf has been separated from Harvard

One of the world’s foremost epidemiologists clashed with the establishment over COVID-19 panic

Cambridge, Massachusetts. March 10. Martin Kulldorf writes that “I am no longer a professor of medicine at Harvard.” The acclaimed Harvard biostatistician and infectious-disease epidemiologist does not report whether he has retired, quit, or been fired or let go by Harvard. Kulldorf says in a published statement that he clung to truth “as the world lost its way during the Covid pandemic.”

“The public should not trust scientists, even Harvard scientists, unwilling to debate their positions with fellow scientists,” writes Kulldorf in a defiant essay. Kulldorf recounts that the virtually the entire academic scientific establishment forsook its ideals in pursuit of the government’s COVID lockdown and vaccine hysteria.

“At the behest of the U.S. government, Twitter censored my tweet for contravening CDC policy. Having also been censored by LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube, I could not freely communicate as a scientist. Who decided that American free-speech rights did not apply to honest scientific comments at odds with those of the CDC director?”

While the US government secretly directed censorship at other social media platforms, it PROSECUTED and destroyed another platform, Gettr, for offering freer speech.

While the US government was secretly directing Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and Google to censor anti-government ideas, a handful of smaller social media platforms popped up, advertising themselves as free-speech platforms. One example was Gettr.

But Gettr is now languishing financially, and deep in debt. Hundreds of Gettr workers have now been laid off. Gettr’s major founder and financial backer, exiled Chinese businessman Guo Wengui, is being prosecuted by the US Justice Department. The charges? “Fraud,” claims the DOJ. The paragraph below is from PC Mag:

“In the DOJ’s indictment, Guo is accused of manipulating his nearly 900,000 followers on Gettr into investing millions into cryptocurrency and anti-Chinese Communist Party “media scams,” The Verge reports. Guo pleaded not guilty in a Manhattan federal court on the same day as his arrest. He was ordered to be detained without bail.”

“Manipulating” “followers” into investing into crypto and anti-communist “media scams” now constitutes fraud, according to the US government.

This shocking story has been mostly ignored. Mainstream pro-government news sources have reported the story in a mocking manner. For example, the pro-government-extremist magazine “Mother Jones” seemed to poke fun at the downfall and indictment of Gettr and its financial backers. See here.

Canadian Lawmaker introduces Bill to imprison people who “suggest that a fossil fuel “would lead to positive outcomes in relation to the environment, the health of Canadians, reconciliation with indigenous peoples or the Canadian or global economy.”

Ottowa. Feb. 16, 2024. Charlie Angus, a far left Canadian member of Parliament, has introduced C-372: An Act respecting fossil fuel advertising.

The totalitarian bill specifies penalties for producers (“on conviction on indictment to a fine not exceeding $1,000,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years, or to both”) and individuals of any stripe (“Every person, other than a producer, who contravenes section 6 is guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding $500,000”) who make improper statements about the fossil fuel industry. 

C-372 states that “It is prohibited for a person to promote a fossil fuel or the production of a fossil fuel…(b) in a manner that states or suggests that a fossil fuel or the practices of a producer or of the fossil fuel industry would lead to positive outcomes in relation to the environment, the health of Canadians, reconciliation with Indigenous peoples or the Canadian or global economy.”

Terry Etam, writing for Wattsupwiththat.com, compares the bill to the 1956 Soviet Criminal Code.

The CIA’s creative writing group

A report from inside Langley, Virginia.

Writing in The Paris Review, author Johannes Lichtman describes how the deep state agency recruits a wide range of creative writers to its writers circle.

“I kept wondering why I’d been invited. I don’t write about CIA-adjacent topics, nor am I successful enough a novelist that people outside a small circle—one that I doubt includes U.S. intelligence agencies—know my name. So the invite was a bit of a mystery. This was the second-most common question that came up when I told writer friends about it. . .”

“I began by asking what people were writing. Surprisingly, none of the CIA writers were writing spy novels. They were working on short stories. Self-published dystopian sci-fi. A presidential biography. Upmarket fiction. A personal blog, which I was told to check out if I ever wanted a really good muffin recipe. The writing group was organized around what sounded like a listserv announcing periodic meetings to whatever members were available that day. Only about half the people in the room seemed to know one another.”

Thailand Courts sentence man to 50 years in prison for criticizing the king.

Every government ultimately comes for all freedom, all property, all money, and to kill all who resist.

Governments everywhere are constantly waging war on criticism and free exchange of ideas.

Now a court in Thailand has handed down an unprecedented 50-year prison sentence to a man convicted of violating the country’s strict laws that criminalize insulting the country’s centuries-old monarchy, according to a legal advocacy group statement reported by CNN.
