AOC Calls for Ministry of Truth

Concerned that “free speech can be abused by enemies of the Biden Administration to undermine its policies and programs,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is calling for “the creation of a commission or some similar agency to rein in media who deviate from the truth.”

While the United States has relied on the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of speech for the last 230 years to prevent the government from censoring criticism of itself, Ocasio-Cortez contends that “the anarchy allowed by our Constitution is not up to the task of shepherding the American people toward the democratic socialism voters just endorsed in the recent elections. The collective ideal cannot be accomplished if antagonists are free to defame our truths and our spokespersons. Congress is the people’s voice and should take action to crackdown on the purveyors of lies and dissension.”

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey agreed that “we ne

Biden As the Post Turtle President of America

Opinion Column by Frosty Wooldridge
Half the people in America scratch their heads in wonderment concerning the Biden Administration.  How did Joe Biden, after 47 years of accomplishing about as much as a chicken scratching in the dirt for worms, ascend to the presidency of the United States?

It brings to mind the story of the “Post Turtle.”  An old Virginia farmer sat in his doctor’s office when the doc asked him his opinion about Joe Biden and his role as our new president.

The farmer said, “Well, ya know, Biden is a ‘Post Turtle.'” 

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, “What is a ‘post turtle’?”

The old man said, “When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle’.”

The doc looked puzzled, so the farmer explained, “Well, you know he didn’t get up there by himself. He doesn’t belong up the

Biden Says “Trump Incited Insurrection”

After the “Stop the Steal” rally held in Washington DC on Wednesday, thousands of those who attended walked over to the Capitol to protest the acceptance of electoral votes obtained by election fraud. As hundreds of shrieking congressmen cowered under their desks a police officer shot an unarmed protester trying to enter the chamber where the debate initiated by formal challenges to some of the electoral votes was getting underway.

President-Elect Joe Biden characterized the protest as an insurrection and blamed Trump “for inciting what history will come to be called the worst threat to democracy this country has ever seen as hordes of domestic terrorists terrorized Congress.”

Trump’s actual parting words to rally participants were “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. Today, we will see whether Republica

America's Difficult Path Into 2021

Opinion Column by Frosty Wooldridge
After this week’s results in Georgia, the democratic party will now be able to run roughshod over the other half of our country’s citizens.  It’s a clean sweep of power, money and influence.  The mainstream media made it possible along with the CIA, FBI and corruption of the Deep State that pulls all the levers of power.

At the surface, we see cheering by half the country that doesn’t understand what open borders will mean.  That cheering half of Americans can’t or won’t see the undertow ripping at the foundation of our Constitutional Republic.  

As promised, Mr. Biden will create a free-for-all at America’s southern border.  Hundreds of thousands and into the millions of desperate Mexicans, Central Americans, South Americans and Asians see a new opportunity to migrate.

But first, let’s look at the success of California’s massive illegal and legal immigrant load.  Its schools now teach in Spanish in the pre

The Problems Biden-Harris and Congress Won’t Solve In 2021

Opinion Column by Frosty Wooldridge
We elect our presidents and Congresses to fix, repair and solve our national problems.  As we enter 2021, however, we will discover that they won’t solve any of our major problems in the next 52 weeks.  Why is that?  Answer: they didn’t solve those problems in the past 52 weeks.

What problems need fixing, but won’t get fixed?

First off, we’ve been at war in Iraq and Afghanistan for 20 years at $6 trillion in spending.  We’ve accomplished nothing to secure our freedoms or ensure our safety.  Both countries remain ‘goat herder’ third world nightmares with no foundation for any kind of civil or 21st century advanced societies.  Yet, the new president and Congress will continue spending something like $4 billion every 30 days to keep those ‘forever wars’…forever.  Note that since those two wars started in 2001, 114,000 active duty and retired military veterans committed suicide.  In other

The End of a Very Nasty, Desperate, Angry Year

Opinion Column by Frosty Wooldridge
The year 2020, just about done and gone, doesn’t excite anyone for the birth of 2021.  We’ve really got multiple messes in our country.  Worse than that, I’m not sure there’s anyone who can repair our problems.  

There might be some kind of salvation in the newly released vaccines being distributed to cure Covid, but how do we cure the anger of our youth toward their own country?  How do you change a teenager from stomping on Old Glory?  How do we assuage Black Lives Matter as they march, burn, riot and loot at the drop of a hat?  What do we do to cure our young Antifa anarchists?  How do we cure a $26 trillion national debt?  How do we solve joblessness, hunger, illiteracy in our inner cities, and over 100,000 homeless Americans living in tents in the streets of major cities like LA, San Francisco, Chicago, Denver, Miami and New York City?

If Trump couldn’t solve them, how will a man suffering from senility and

Your Fate Follows Your Vibrations

Read more on this subject: Self-Help: Rational Living
Opinion Column by Frosty Wooldridge
This Christmas and New Year’s season, humanity’s vibrations accelerate toward love, fellowship, brotherhood, sisterhood, family and friends.  Each of us gravitates toward kindness, reverence and gratitude.

While we may scurry around town purchasing gifts, watching our kids perform at the Christmas musical or talk with old friends on the telephone—a new focus of renewal cascades into our lives.

You may see it as the birth of a child. You may look upon it as the metamorphosis from the shortest day of the year to the lengthening of light that brings hope for spring.  You may be religious or otherwise, but this much remains certain: your vibrations enjoy a response to something in the air, something undefined and something magnetic that leads to spiritual outreach.

“Your action has nothing to do with your abundance. Your abundance is a response to your vibrations. Of course, your belief is part of your vibrations.” &nbsp

The 2020/2021 Ammo Shortage

What’s Behind It?

Are Industry Leaders Telling The Truth?

So by now, if you are a typical reader of this journal, you are aware of the current panic buying in ammo and guns occurring these days. But for those who are just catching up on current events, lets us briefly recap;….

As a member of “The Gun Culture”, I already had a sense 2 years ago that this year’s election might not go well for Trump, and that would bode badly for the future of gun rights. Reactively, that would also mean bad things for PRICES of gun stuff, as has occurred repeatedly over the years when future supply and replenishment are threatened by political winds. People panic, demand increases, stock on hand gets bought out, resupply can’t keep up, prices elevate, gnashing of teeth and wailing ensues. I wrote an article here on Freedom’s Phoenix about it in January of 2019, trying to warn you all. https://www.freedomsphoenix.com/Arti

Christmas Magic: Moment Frozen in Time Where the Bolt Goes Into the Bottom of the Globe

Opinion Column by Frosty Wooldridge
This year, 2020, proved a rough one for every one of us. Over 300,000 Americans lost their lives to a “killing machine” virus.  Their loved ones grieved such heavy losses.  We’ve been house-bound like few times in history. On a somber note, historians will record humanity’s folly in the 21st century.

But this is Christmas, and I would like to share with you, if you haven’t already read this story from the South Pole, a tale of hope, of kindness and of beauty.  My wife Sandi and I wish you Merry Christmas, with love and warm wishes,  Sandi and Frosty Wooldridge.

In the morning, a whiteout howled across McMurdo Station, Antarctica with 100 mile per hour winds and minus 80 degree temperatures.  I had been confined to my barracks for two days as a ‘Condition One’ storm worked its way over the icepack before me.

By late evening, the weather turned placid but a biting minus 60 degree tem
