The Jig Is Up. We The People Own The Truth.

Newsletter | June 1, 2023

The jig is up for the crooks, scoundrels, gangsters, and tricksters with their fairy tales, fables, tall stories, and downright lies. We The People own the truth, and they know it.

You can’t turn on your TV or radio without hearing a lie issuing from the mouths of our political and corporate establishment, lies abetted by an elite media that has become a breeding ground for falsehood.

We’re not talking about the sort of spin we’re accustomed to hearing from politicians since the beginning of recorded time. In fact, sometimes, it’s hard not to think that American democracy is fundamentally about saying one thing to your constituents to get elected and then doing the opposite once at the Capitol to make sure you have the money to get re-elected. But the mendacity filling the airwaves and our newspapers and websites today is of a different category. A category filled with ugly harmful intentional lies and reckless abandonment of truth.

Let’s start with the most blatant lie in Washington since it’s at the core of the current White House’s agenda — climate change. Sure, the weather changes, from day to day and from millennium to millennium, but there’s no evidence that humanity’s actions have much influence on the weather. And yet progressives continue to push an idea that their own leadership admits is a lie. Barack Obama was mastermind of the Paris Climate Accords — if he were really worried about the oceans’ rising, he wouldn’t have bought million-dollar ocean-front properties in Massachusetts and Hawaii. While we’re at it, how did he get so rich that he’s able to buy those homes?

If the ruling class really believed in climate change, its leading lights wouldn’t be spending so much on fuel for private jets. And yet there’s White House climate czar John Kerry off on another trip to Europe or Asia to meet with like-minded colleagues who agree that mankind will have to stop farming if we want to save the planet.

Here’s another lie the ruling class stands behind — the Trans agenda. Biology is a stubborn fact, there are two sexes, male and female. When a Supreme Court Justice says she can’t define a woman, it just means she doesn’t want to anger her pathological allies in the progressive movement, so she lies. The White House validated this pathology by giving a high-level job at the Department of Health and Human Services to a deranged pediatrician named Richard Levine who dresses in women’s clothes and demands the press call him “Rachel.”

In the Beltway Liars’ Hall of Fame, there’s an entire Russiagate Wing, with Congressman Adam Schiff still promising he has more than circumstantial evidence that Donald Trump colluded with Russia. Schiff’s former counsel, Levi Strauss heir Daniel Goldman is there, too. The newly elected New York Congressman lies from the House floor about FBI whistleblowers and patriot Kash Patel.

James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, virtually every senior figure from the Obama administration lied to the press about Russiagate — even after they testified under oath that they’d seen no evidence of conspiracy, coordination, or collusion between Trump and Russia.

Sitting at the very top rungs of American society is a cabal of professional pathological liars. They’re waging a vicious information warfare campaign of lies against us. So, how do we fight back? First, turn off your TV. Listen to those you trust. Recalibrate your truth detector by speaking with friends and family. Read scripture and find your certain foothold on reality. Now you’re ready — speak the truth and call out the liars. Write it out on social media if you like — write your congressmen and Senators.

Speak the truth — sing our national anthem louder. Say our pledge of allegiance with more conviction. They can’t win an information war when all they have are lies, and We the People own the truth.

Please participate in our Reader’s Survey. Your insights and thoughts are important as we learn what is on the minds and in the hearts of our fellow Americans. We read them all and share some of them every Monday at 9 a.m. during America’s Future live broadcasts with our Executive Director Mary O’Neill on America’s Mondays With Mary. Thank You! 

America Patriots - Julie Kelly

Julie Kelly is one of America’s great writers. She’s a hard-hitting political commentator and reporter who’s covered everything from Russiagate to the corrupt so-called conservative grifter movement that calls itself Never Trump. But she’s best known for her work investigating the January 6, 2021 protest and its aftermath — how the current administration used the demonstration to target its political opponents and lay waste to the constitution. Without Julie’s reporting shining light on federal law enforcement subversion and unlawful and unconstitutional actions, we wouldn’t know anything about how the government has abused its powers to destroy middle-class Americans who just wanted to have their say. In speaking the truth, Julie Kelly has become one of our leading dissident voices. We spoke with her recently to hear what she has to say about January 6 and the future of our country.

You’ve reported so many terrible and heart-breaking stories about January 6 defendants — what is the most important thing for Americans to know about these men and women and their families?

I am always amazed by their graciousness, deep faith, and continued love for this country despite what the Biden regime is doing to them. They truly are going through hell – careers and marriages destroyed, bankrupted, alienated by the neighbors and community, constantly harassed by national and local media–but they in many instances remain oddly optimistic. Even at their darkest moments, they will reach out to thank me for my reporting, which humbles me and keeps me going. 

Can you tell us something about the U.S. Attorney leading the prosecution of the January 6 cases, Matthew Graves?

The poster child for a fully weaponized, partisan Department of Justice. Appointed by Biden to take over the office in November 2021, he wasted no time escalating the January 6 prosecution, which he rebranded the “Capitol Siege” investigation. He brought seditious conspiracy charges against American citizens who committed no violence in order to give the Biden regime, Democrats, and the media a legal basis to describe January 6 as an “insurrection.” After several individuals were convicted of seditious conspiracy, Graves sought terrorism sentencing enhancements, adding years to their prison time. At the same time he fixates on a four-hour disturbance nearly two and a half years ago, Graves has buried any investigation into BLM riots that lasted much longer and did far more damage than anything that happened on January 6.

You’ve said you think Donald Trump will be indicted by the Justice Department for January 6; now that he’s the near-certain Republican candidate, do you still think they’ll charge him? 

I have no doubt Special Counsel Jack Smith, the prosecutor hand-picked by Attorney General Merrick Garland last year to give the phony impression the investigation into Donald Trump is “independent” of DOJ, will hand down a multi-count felony indictment against Trump within the next few months. The indictment might include a seditious conspiracy charge since members of the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys, two groups loyal to Trump, were convicted of that offense. This is about to get very ugly, and anyone who believes this vengeful DOJ won’t go that far is kidding themselves.

What are the ways that we can help January 6 defendants?

Most would say just pray for them and pray for justice to prevail. I urge people to contact Republican members of Congress and demand a separate J6 committee so the American people can learn the truth. The public needs to know what this DOJ is doing to their fellow countrymen. More videos from that day – now under protective orders – must be made available. Ditto for documents, especially records from the office of Nancy Pelosi, which were kept “off limits” by the January 6 committee. What happened on January 6 is one of the greatest scandals in history, and the coverup must end.

What is your prayer for America right now

That the forces of evil lose. That those responsible for destroying so many lives are held accountable. That the victims can rebuild their lives and find peace. And that this dangerous slide toward a banana republic is somehow halted.


Time To Ramp Up Student Knowledge Of American Civics

Child with American Flag

The drumbeat of anti-American rhetoric over time has taken hold in today’s classrooms. For the first time since the United States Department of Education (DOE) began testing eighth graders’ knowledge of civics, the performance of these students has declined.  Interestingly, the most significant decline occurred in the highest-performing students.

The findings follow testing of civics knowledge (and other subjects) that were uncovered in the 2022 national report card, released by the  DOE’s National aCenter for Education Statistics Assessment (NCES) through its testing source, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).

No doubt, these results, among others, are influencing parental decision-making to homeschool their children, which continues to rise across the county. It is clear that students are learning less and less about what makes America exceptional. Rather than emphasizing the greatness and strength of our Constitution and the Judeo-Christian values our nation was founded upon, public educational institutions, instead, accentuate the flaws of our nation’s past as though we have made limited progress – a falsity unto itself.

Historian and Hillsdale College Professor Wilfred McClay makes the case for our nation’s progress in a recent interview when he characterizes the issue in plain language, stating, “Teachers and professors over-emphasize America’s shortcomings without due regard for the nation’s founders and institutions…love of one’s country, of what is one’s own, and gratitude for the forbears who made our present prosperity and freedom possible, is something that formal education should be inculcating and reinforcing.”

Although COVID lockdowns and school closures had serious detrimental impacts on the state of our nation’s youth, the silver lining is that parents were offered a front-row seat to the indoctrination and lack of critical thinking skills that plague today’s public schools. It also bolsters arguments made for school choice by many parents and others in a gallant effort to improve student performance and redesign America’s educational system to serve the best interests of students and to ensure the future of our nation’s prosperity.

Keeping You Informed

Powerful Impact Expected As SCOTUS Closes Term

On June 30, 2023, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) will officially close its October Term 2022. By then all of the nearly 70 non-expedited SCOTUS cases selected by the Justices to be heard during this term should be resolved. Presently, 29 cases have been resolved either by consolidation with other cases, by dismissal, or through formal opinions located here. Of the approximate 40 outstanding cases, eight have been consolidated with others.

Readers are advised to stay alert for landmark decisions before the term ends in the areas of affirmative action, election law, immigration law, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech.  SCOTUS will also resolve the Biden student loan debt forgiveness scheme along with other legal issues of importance.

To stay informed about these important decisions, readers can access this term’s case highlights and rulings on our website here. Below are three of the most recent decisions as of May 25, 2023. To access the SCOTUS website for more information, please visit

Tyler v Hennepin County, Minnesota (21-166)
ISSUE: Whether the government (in this case, a local county government) is in violation of the Fifth Amendment’s Takings Clause when it seizes the entire value of a person’s real property (e.g., a person’s home), including any equity, to satisfy a smaller debt owed (e.g., unpaid property taxes).
RULING: Yes. The government violates the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment if it seizes the entire value of a property to satisfy a debt of lesser value on account of the government failing to pay the (former) landowner just compensation. – The United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit is reversed.

Sackett v EPA (21-454)
ISSUE: Whether the Clean Water Act (CWA) “extends to wetlands that have no continuous surface connections with ‘waters’ of the United States?” And, whether the lower court properly interpreted the meaning of “waters of the United States,” under the CWA.
RULING: No. The ruling limits the scope of the CWA. “The CWA’s use of ‘waters’ refers only to geographic[al] features that are described in ordinary parlance as streams, oceans, rivers, and lakes and to adjacent wetlands that are indistinguishable from those bodies of water due to a continuous surface connection…[t]o assert jurisdiction over an adjacent wetland under the CWA, a party must establish first, that the adjacent [body of water constitutes] . . . water[s] of the United States (i.e., a relatively permanent body of water connected to traditional interstate navigable waters); and second, that the wetland has a continuous surface connection with that water, making it difficult to determine where the water ends and the wetland begins.”– The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit is reversed, and the case remanded.

Dupree v Younger (22-210)
ISSUE: Whether “a post-trial motion under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure (FRCP) Rule 50 is required to preserve for appellate review a purely legal issue resolved at summary judgment.” 
RULING: No. “A post-trial motion under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure (FRCP) Rule 50 is not required to preserve for appellate review a purely legal issue resolved at summary judgment.” – The dismissal issued by the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit is vacated, and the case remanded.

Defund The Federal Beast

Let’s Defund “Transgender” Genital Mutilation

This is the sixth entry in our IN FOCUS section highlighting some of the most abusive and oppressive federal agencies and programs that House Republicans should target for ending. Readers will find the previous articles of the series here.

One of the most astonishing signs of the moral collapse of the West is its embrace of the fantasy that a person can change his or her sex.  It is one thing for this delusion to affect children through what is often called “social contagion,” a phenomenon brilliantly described by Abigail Shrier in her book Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters (Regnery: 2021).  But the delusion does not end there.  Adults seek to “transition” as well.  All this raises the question of who is paying for the hormone treatments or surgical procedures required to make a person “transition”?  Well, for an increasing number of people suffering from “gender dysphoria,” the taxpayers are required to pay for gruesome treatments that only enrich doctors and pharmaceutical companies who have lost their way, elevating profits over people.

Military Service Members and Veterans.  One of President Biden’s first acts as president, on January 25, 2021, was issuing an Executive Order encouraging transgender persons to serve in the U.S. military by ensuring that taxpayers would pay for “gender reassignment surgery” for active duty military and veterans.  A high-ranking former Army officer concluded: “Biden’s order currently reads like anyone in a war zone can suddenly take leave to undergo reassignment surgery.”  

Federal Prisoners.  Although there appears to be no policy of the Federal Bureau of Prisons ensuring inmates may receive transgender surgery, in April 2023, the first transgender prisoner had such surgery at the order of a federal district judgein the Southern District of Illinois.  That surgery was the first, but almost certainly will not be the last, as, according to one estimate:  “About 1,200 transgender individuals are estimated to be in the federal prison system, or less than 1% of the overall inmate population of about 159,000.”  

Medicare.  One does not ordinarily think of senior citizens on Medicare as having “gender dysphoria” and seeking treatment, but the federal government funds “medically necessary” genital reassignment  surgery through Medicare.

Medicaid.  Some states attempted to fight back to end use of Medicaid funds for gender reassignment surgery, provoking Biden’s Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, Kristen Clarke, to send a letter to the attorneys general of the 50 states, threatening that states would be in violation of the U.S. Constitution and federal law if they refused to fund such surgery.  The letter threatened consequences if a state tries to “criminalize[] or even restrict[] a type of medical care predominantly sought by transgender persons….”

Federal Employees.  The federal government has ensured that health plans available to federal employees provide coverage for transgender surgery.  A fact sheet issued by the Office of Personnel Management states that all Federal Employee Health Benefits plans must offer “access to medications and provide coverage of medically necessary hormonal therapies for gender transition care.”  Although surgery is not expressly mentioned, the general requirement to provide care for trans-people would seem to require its coverage.

With the federal government’s vast funding of anything healthcare related, there is no doubt other programs exist that we have not yet identified, but there is no question that the Biden Administration is committed to maximizing hormonal and surgical care to trans-persons.  Fortunately, there has been some pushback at both state and federal levels.

A few states have begun to resist such surgery.  In April, 2021, Arkansas became the first state to ban the practice of permitting transgender genital mutilation, although the legislature had to override the veto of Republican Governor Asa Hutchinson, now a candidate for the Republican nomination for President, to do so.  On October 4, 2022, Oklahoma also decided to withhold funding from state hospitals that perform the practice on children.  Other states have been developing other ways to protect their citizens.

At the federal level, in the last (117th) Congress, two bills were introduced.  Senator Roger Marshall (R-KS) introduced the “End Taxpayer Funding of Gender Experimentation Act of 2021.”  Predictably, the bill was buried in the Finance Committee by Democrats in control of the Senate.  In August 2022, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) got no further when she introduced the “Protect Children’s Innocence Act” in the House to ban the practice on minors, and prohibit federal funding for it in all cases.  Greene reintroduced her bill in the current (118th) Congress on March 7, 2023, as H.R. 1399and that bill has been referred to four separate House committees for consideration.

But for the current mania over transgenderism, such a ban on taxpayer funded transgender surgery would not seem all that radical.

In 1996, Congress realized that female genital mutilation, a common practice in some Muslim nations, was becoming an exploding problem in the United States, banning it for minor girls.  That law was struck down by a federal judge in Michigan in 2018.  Congress responded by criminalizing the procedure in 2021, with a bill signed by President Trump.  Representative Scott Perry (R-PA), explained the bill, “We must be abundantly clear that this cultural practice has no medical benefit and won’t be tolerated in the United States of America.”  Scott Berkowitz, president of the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, stated, “This bill will help protect girls from this awful, and often overlooked, form of sexual assault.” Designated as HR 6100, the “Stop FGM Act of 2020,” found that “[f]emale genital mutilation is a heinous practice that often inflicts excruciating pain on its victims and causes them to suffer grave physical and psychological harm.”  Codified as 18 U.S.C. § 116, the law provides for a 10-year prison sentence for attempting or conspiring to commit female genital mutilation.

Congress got it right in 2020, finding that genital mutilation caused its victims “grave physical and psychological harm.”  Similarly, it is inexcusable for the federal government to compel taxpayers to pay for destructive transgender surgery for adults or children.  House Republicans can and should act as quickly as possible to stop any and all funding for such perverse medical and surgical treatments.
