Al Perrotta is on vacation.
The government is spending your money to produce video games designed by behavioral psychologists that brainwash your kids into being gullible leftist sheeple, who mindlessly believe whatever elite authority figures tell them — on every subject from election integrity and climate change to obedience to vaccine mandates. Gateway Pundit reports:
The US government is using taxpayers’ money to create a video game as a “psychological vaccination against fake news,” according to a leaked State Department memo obtained by America First Legal (AFL) and reviewed by Foundation for Freedom Online (FFO).
The State Department’s Global Engagement Center (GEC) released a memo on October 31, 2022, with the subject line “Cat Park: A New Online Game to Inoculate Youth Against Disinformation,” which describes a plan to launch a new tax-funded online game.
Of course the elitists who designed this child mind control scheme justify it by accusing their political opponents of promoting mayhem and slaughter. “[S]ensational headlines, memes, and manipulated media can be used to advance conspiracy theories and incite real-world violence.”
Ten years ago, the report above would have sounded like some made-up crackpot claim you’d find on a website that warns against the “Lizard People.” Now it’s just the news. It doesn’t even shock us.
In fact, stop and think for a moment. Is there anything that would? Let’s play a game. Is there any atrocity, any crime against freedom and human decency, fairness or basic honesty, the U.S. Constitution or the Golden Rule, that you would put past Progressives? These are the people who dumped virus patients in nursing homes to spike the death statistics and justify mail-in balloting to steal the 2020 election. Who lit up the Empire State Building to celebrate partial birth abortion. Who are cutting the healthy breasts off 13-year-old girls.
Nope, there’s literally nothing you could tell me about the left that I couldn’t believe — except if required self-sacrifice and integrity. That is a bridge too far.
Election Abuses in Arizona
Are you wondering how Kari Lake and so many other wonderful candidates in Arizona lost in the midterms? They quite possibly didn’t. The squalid, willful incompetence which Democrats in that state use to cover election manipulation is under close legal scrutiny, The Western Journal reports:
Arizona Assistant Attorney General Jennifer Wright — with the Elections Integrity Unit — wrote a letter to the Maricopa County officials Saturday demanding an accounting for the widespread ballot tabulation and ballot printer problems seen during the general election on Nov. 8.
Among the most troubling issues raised in the letter directed to Thomas Liddy with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office was the apparent co-mingling of ballots in black duffle bags in at least one polling location, which were successfully run through the on-site tabulators with those put in “Door 3” to be sent to the Election Department’s downtown Phoenix tabulation center because they could not be read.
“The Elections Integrity Unit (“Unit”) of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office (“AGO”) has received hundreds of complaints since Election Day pertaining to issues related to the administration of the 2022 General Election in Maricopa County,” Wright opened her letter.
“These complaints go beyond pure speculation, but include first-hand witness accounts that raise concerns regarding Maricopa’s lawful compliance with Arizona election law,” she continued.
Wright wrote that statements made by Maricopa Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates and County Recorder Stephen Richer, along with other official communications from the county appear to confirm potential election law violations.
But if you want to investigate abuses like this in achingly close, crucial elections, you’re going to get called an “election denier,” a made-up term of abuse crafted by our Stasi media to sound like “Holocaust denier,” in order to demonize and scapegoat people who object to U.S. elections being run like East German plebiscites. Keep your eyes on the Arizona story as it develops, and for daily updates watch Steve Bannon’s War Room.
Truckers Protest What They Call Election Fraud in Brazil
Is it possible that a Latin American election was actually as corrupt and crooked as U.S. elections have become? Are the people south of the border slipping down to North American standards? Millions of supporters of conservative Brazilian populist president Jair Bolsonaro think so. They know that globalists are hungry to control their country’s vast natural resources, and subject Brazilians to the climate cult global austerity program.
The recent election that anointed as the country’s next president the Marxist Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has provoked widespread charges of vote fraud. Now the country’s truckers are joining protests, demanding investigations, according to Creative Destruction Media. That site reposted tweets depicting massive traffic stoppages:

Meanwhile, Brazilian banks eager to please the incoming Lula regime have threatened to close down the bank accounts of companies that take part in the protests — just as Canadian banks did to anti-vaccine mandate protestors in 2021. But don’t talk about a coordinated conspiracy, now. That might get you called an extremist.
Ted Cruz Blames McConnell for Throwing the Senate Away
Who’s to blame for the GOP not retaking the Senate, even as the Democrat preside over spiking energy prices, an wide-open border, massive deficits, inflation, high-interest rates, and a potential war with Russia? Our regime media outlets, including controlled opposition “conservative” sources, want you to think that Donald Trump flubbed this easy win. This even though Trump-endorsed candidates performed extremely well in most of the country. Ted Cruz, Trump’s one-time bitter rival for the presidential nomination, has a more plausible theory. Again, from Western Journal:
With the disappointing results from the predicted “red wave” this midterm cycle, Republicans have been quick to point fingers at former President Donald Trump for the particularly poor performance of Republicans in the Senate races.
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, however, has specifically named Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell as the reason for Republican failure to win the upper chamber.
According to The Daily Caller, Cruz unapologetically stated on Monday’s episode of his podcast “Verdict with Ted Cruz” that McConnell’s “indefensible” abandonment of Arizona Senate candidate Blake Masters is what kept Republicans from recapturing the Senate.
Cruz said the party had missed a “generational opportunity” to take both the House and Senate and maintain a significant majority in both houses of Congress.
“We had an extraordinary opportunity. We had a generational opportunity,” he said.
“This should have been a fundamental landslide election. We should have won the House and the Senate. We should have a 30, 40, 50 vote majority in the House. We should have 53, 54, 55 Republicans in the Senate.”
On the podcast, Ferguson asked Cruz, according to The Daily Caller, “Explain to me, Senator, why in a race where the polling showed that we had a legitimate chance of winning there. Why did he pull out that money from Masters who desperately needed it?”
“Because Masters said he would vote against Mitch McConnell, and so Mitch would rather be leader than have a Republican majority,” Cruz said, according to The Daily Caller. “If there’s a Republican who can win, who’s not gonna support Mitch, the truth of the matter is, he’d rather the Democrat win. So he pulled all the money out of Arizona.”
Cruz’s statement confirms what I’ve been saying for years: Our real enemies are RINOs, much more than leftist Democrats. At least the latter aren’t trying to take over our own political party and remake it as the Washington Generals — whose job it is to lose graciously to the Harlem Globetrotters, every single game.

Don’t miss Randy Robison’s new column, which reminds us that no electoral shenanigans or cultural pressure can stop us from acting like Christians — by sharing the Gospel with our neighbors, one soul at a time. That’s how the Roman empire got converted in just a few generations, and Caesar couldn’t stop it. He still can’t stop it now. The gates of hell won’t prevail against that battering ram … .
David Marshall has a delightful new excerpt from his recent book, revealing how C.S. Lewis’s Narnia novels help highlight the solid evidence for the divinity of Jesus.
