Facts Are Facts, No Matter What the Dictators of Davos Say



By John F. Di Leo, Opinion Contributor

The world’s central planners meet, speak, plan and party together.

Whether they do so in Davos or New York, Paris or Washington D.C.; whether in the name of the WEF or UN or Congress or EU, these central planners share the same goal: to repeat so many seemingly-unrelated lies, so often and so vigorously, that they can get the public to believe that statism is the solution.

Well, their solution will never be right, because their premises will never be right.

Facts are facts, no matter what the dictators of Davos may say. For example, a few truths:

1. Carbon Dioxide is not a pollutant.
2. Man does not control the weather on earth; our climate is controlled by nature and the Sun.
3. The Constitution is the primary law in America, whether elected officials like it or not, and violations of their oaths of office will someday have to be punished.
4. Men are men, and women are women. You can’t change from one to another, no matter how many operations and drugs you take.
5. The 1st and 2nd Amendments are at the core of the American system. The Left hates these amendments most of all because they hate the American system so much.
6. Today’s Democrat politicians are every bit the slave masters that their pre-Civil War ancestors were, but in fact, are far worse.
7. Petroleum is one of the greatest materials on God’s green earth. Instead of trying to stamp out its use, we should appreciate it for its incredible versatility and usefulness.
8. Abortion kills an innocent human being. Capital punishment applied by the criminal justice system kills a guilty human being to avenge victims and protect society. The two situations are not remotely related.
9. By completely eliminating the power that the several states once held on the federal government, the 17th Amendment turned the American system inside out. By breaking the Constitution’s delicately balanced system, the 17th was in fact a much more devastating revolution even than the Civil War.
10. Vote fraud in a republic has the same effect – overthrowing the rightful government – that regicide has in a monarchy, and needs to carry the same penalty.
11. Virtually none of the people pouring over our southern border are really asylum seekers. At best, they’re just run-of-the-mill economic migrants, legal and illegal alike. Many are much worse.
12. The Left focuses on the fact that sunlight and wind are free, and oil and coal must be bought, to give the false impression that solar and wind power are cheap by comparison. But in truth, the costs of production and delivery is infinitely more relevant with power delivery. And while petroleum, coal, natural gas and nuclear are cheap and efficient to transform into power, the fact is that solar and wind are incredibly inefficient and undependable. Solar and wind are, in fact, the most expensive, and objectively worst, power sources on earth.
13. Endless deficit spending is a permanent inflation engine, robbing everyone with money of their money’s value at a terrible pace, hurting the poorest the hardest and quickest because they can least afford these deltas.
14. An avoidable recession, even a short one, may be recoverable for those established in their careers, but can be economically devastating for those just starting out. Being graduated from high school or college into a weak job market can rob youths of their chance to ever get on that ladder, permanently closing the doors that are often only open to the young.
15. The transgender movement is slowly destroying everything that was designed to support and protect women’s safety and opportunities, from sports to scholarships, from bathrooms to awards shows, from pageants to careers. The trans movement may more noticeably annoy men, but it does infinitely more real, permanent damage to women.
16. Humans are natural omnivores. A balanced diet of meat, dairy, grains, fruits and vegetables is critical to human health, and is both a cause and result of an affluent society. The current effort to replace real meat with lab-cultivated or plant-based substitutes, and to otherwise meddle with the normal American food balance, is unnatural and destructive.
17. The primary purpose of government is to protect law-abiding citizens from those who would do them harm. The entire political movement now known as “criminal justice reform” – which seeks to end the imprisonment of proven criminals – is therefore an abandonment of government’s duty to its honest citizens. Robbers, muggers, rapists and murderers – among others – need to be removed from society, through either incarceration or execution. For government to do less is to render government itself an abomination.
18. Marriage exists to channel the human libido – a societally destructive negative when acted upon outside of marriage – into a necessary and valuable societal positive. The ongoing efforts to destroy traditional marriage over the past half century have already wreaked havoc shown in the schools, the welfare rolls, the churches and the workplace.
19. Every increase in the minimum wage destroys countless jobs.
20. The primary goal of trade policy must be to ensure that the nation can be self-sufficient; not to ban the importation of goods outright, but to ensure that imported goods are an optional supplement to domestic supply, never so substantive a source that a wartime cutoff would be economically destructive.
21. Nothing a president or ambassador agrees to, in these global events like Kyoto or the UN or Davos or the G-20, is in any way binding on the United States unless it is put in treaty form and approved by the U.S. Senate.
22. When the Supreme Court issued Dobbs, it clarified that abortion policy is in the hands of the states, as per the 10th Amendment. As a result, Joe Biden’s efforts to go around Dobbs with Executive Orders are clearly unconstitutional. In fact, since Executive Orders can only legally be issued in areas where the executive has been specifically empowered by the Constitution and Congressional action, many Executive Orders are illegal by definition.

This is only the tip of the iceberg; there are many more. But these are 22 of the many key points on which the statists are completely wrong, and the American way is completely right.

Here’s hoping that Divine Providence helps us survive until Americans are back in charge of all branches of government, and can set America back on the right course.
