Will Wilkinson is a New York Times opinion writer, and VP for Research for the “non-partisan” Niskanen Center. I’ve reached out to them for comment.
Update: Wilkinson has been fired and the left is upset that no one appreciated his ironic humour. Live by the cancel culture – die by the cancel culture. New Rules.

WH source: The NRA, Turning Point USA & Patriot Guard Riders are three of many non-militia groups on the list CID / FBI are using to cross reference in vetting for potential “extremists”
“YAF also on the list”
“They’re looking at various TPUSA chapters in almost every university and high school where there is one (for example high school members who are in the future soldier program, which is Army’s version of Delayed Entry Program) + college age soldiers obviously already in.”
“Investigators also looking for the following in pictures: MAGA / KAG apparel, Gadsden flag, Confederate Flag, NRA gear, Q stuff”
“Soldiers facebooks, twitters, instagrams, tik-toks and snapchats also being checked, units from deep red states such as Texas being thoroughly examined.”
“Left wing, anarchist groups also listed but not a top priority, in fact zero have been investigated as of this evening. Leaders in both Army + FBI have directed to focus attention on groups with “strong conservative sentiments”
“NCIS, AFOSI, CGIS also expecting to receive that directive from senior DoD officials in the coming days, this goes way beyond the inauguration. It won’t magically stop after tomorrow.”
OTOH, this thread will still exist when Twitter nukes his account.
On Monday, [Nova Scotia] becomes the first jurisdiction in North America to switch from an opt-in donation system to an opt-out system. It’s a move that medical experts across the continent are watching with great interest.
Instead of signing organ donation cards, the system is now built around presumed consent — that every adult is open to being a donor when they die.
“But if you’re dead, you don’t need your organs.”
If you’re dead, you don’t need your savings or property either.

HERE THERE BE TASERS: Premier Francois Legault announced a “shock therapy” of several new lockdown measures on Wednesday afternoon.
Your official government watchdogs welcome the “heavy police presence”.
Selley: Because governments can’t get their act together and some critical mass of citizens can’t or won’t take the precautions necessary not to spread and catch the virus, you can’t go for a healthy walk after 8 p.m. in Canada’s second-most-populous province unless you have a dog.

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation yesterday said it needs a new debt clock after federal debts surpassed a trillion for the first time since Confederation. “This one doesn’t have enough digits,” said Aaron Wudrick, federal director.
Anne Phair was having some coffee with some friends one day, back when you could still do that. They were talking about the federal carbon tax. Anne said, “I was talking to some friends, most of which don’t actually own their own businesses, and one was talking about how her grandma got some money back and she doesn’t ever get money back. And she was so surprised and I’m like, ‘Yeah, that was my money.’”
I’ll believe there’s no conspiracy when the people who say there’s no conspiracy stop acting like conspirators: According to Forbes contributor and clean tech entrepreneur Wal van Lierop, climate change is such an emergency that Covid-19 lockdowns should continue indefinitely as climate change lockdowns.
CBC, December 17th – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said today that Canadians who have received letters suggesting they may have to repay emergency relief benefits shouldn’t be concerned — at least for now.
CBC, December 18th – Ottawa-area club plans to keep funds as ‘cushion’ against future expenses
Make no mistake: this plan for us — not them.
The UN is explicit: “COVID-19 has provided insight into how rapid lifestyle changes can be brought about by governments … The lockdown period in many countries may be long enough to establish new, lasting routines if supported by longer term measures. In planning the recovery from COVID-19, governments have an opportunity to catalyse low-carbon lifestyle changes by disrupting entrenched practices.”
Governments can achieve these goals, the UN says, through taxation and other policies affecting fundamental decisions we make about our lives, from what we eat (preferably meatless, low-carbon diets), to how we travel (less by air, more by subsidized electric cars), to how we power our homes (with wind and solar energy, at least for “higher income” earners, given the costs) and much, much more.
That’s what Trudeau means by “The Great Reset.”
The Ford government is considering adopting an “immunity passport” to show who has taken a COVID-19 vaccine and will be eligible for certain activities once vaccination becomes widespread. The shocking comments were made by Health Minister Christine Elliott on Tuesday.
Elliott was being asked about vaccine distribution including convincing more people to take the shot once it is available.
