Saturday News Roundup: The Media has Blood on its Hands, and America has had Enough

Domestic terrorists? What domestic terrorists? – We led Friday’s News Roundup with the FBI’s arrest of one Jason Charter, a BLM/Antifa organizer who led the effort that tried and failed to take down the Andrew Jackson statue in Washington, DC’s Lafayette Square last month. That seemed like an important story with all of the media-fed, Democrat-organized social unrest taking place in the country, right?

It turns out that, other than Fox News and OAN, not a single other TV “news” outlet spent a second of air time covering that story. That’s right: ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN are all so down with the terrorist cause in our country that they refuse to report on the arrests of these terrorists when they take place.

In the minds of the corrupt editors and reporters at those outlets, it is far more important to spend their time spreading more panic porn about the Wuhan virus than it is to inform the public that many of the people who burned and looted large swaths of a dozen major American cities during June are being brought to justice.

Because if a story is good for Trump, it’s bad, bad, bad for the corrupt news media.

Speaking of stories that are good for Trump and really bad for the media… – A new study from the International Journal of Infectious Diseases finds that Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), which the corrupt news media spent months demonizing and lying about after Trump endorsed its use, does indeed save the lives of people who have contracted COVID-19.

From a report at the Wall Street Journal:

Coronavirus patients treated with the drug hydroxychloroquine within the first two days of admission were more likely to survive than patients who received other treatment, according to the study, which was published online by the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.

The study, which analyzed medical records of 2,541 Covid-19 patients, suggests that hydroxychloroquine can be effective if given during the early stages of contracting the virus and at the right dose, the researchers said. Other studies, however, haven’t found a benefit, and federal health officials withdrew the drug’s authorization for emergency use.

Patients whose records were analyzed were given 400 mg of hydroxychloroquine twice on the first day, followed by 200 mg twice a day the following four days.

“We gave it early,” said Marcus Zervos, head of the infectious-diseases division for Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, who co-authored the study. “If it’s given late in therapy, it’s going to have relatively more limited benefits.”

[End]

In other words, this study verified exactly the studies out of France and South Korea, as well as anecdotal information from doctors around the U.S. who have had tremendous results with treating patients with HCQ early in the course of the virus. We knew all of this three full months ago, but the focused campaign by corrupt media outlets like CNN, NBC and the New York Time to demonize this drug intimated many doctors to avoid its use, no doubt resulting in many deaths that would have otherwise been avoided.

The simple fact of the matter is that the American news media has blood on its hands over this safe, effective and cheap drug. But then, our corrupt media has so much blood on its hands these days that this episode is just par for the course.

If we can’t find some way to effectively hold these corrupt editors and reporters accountable for their actions, our country will eventually die. They are a gigantic cancer that is rapidly metastasizing across our culture.

How to know President Trump gave a great and effective speech… – President Trump delivered a soaring and inspiring patriotic speech at Mount Rushmore last night. Here is how the news-fakers at the New York Times characterized it:

Let’s remember that the New York Times has rolled out the terms “dark” and “divisive” at Trump’s inauguration speech and every one of his State of the Union messages. After each and every one of those speeches, the President’s public approval ratings went up.

Dear NYTimes editorial board: Your elementary school word template is failing.

Speaking of failing… – A group of protesters managed to delay the timing of the Mt. Rushmore ceremony for awhile as they blocked the road up to the monument ahead of the President’s arrival.

From a story at Fox News:

About 15 protesters were arrested Friday after they blocked an access road to Mount Rushmore hours before President Trump was scheduled to give remarks to kick off Independence Day weekend.

According to the Associated Press, the protest group was mostly made up of Native Americans protesting that South Dakota’s Black Hills were taken from the Lakota people against treaty agreements.

[End]

Note: Anyone who watched the protest action live knows that the AP characterization of the makeup of the protest group is completely false. The group in fact was made up mainly of the same kind of pasty-white entitled Millennials who we see dominating every Antifa and BLM-organized riot. But hey, lying outright to the American public is what the AP and the rest of our corrupt news media does.

More from the story:

One group parked three vans across the road and removed the tires from two of the vehicles to make it more difficult to remove them. Several demonstrators climbed on top of the vans chanting “Land back!”

The sheriff’s office said attendees had been told to arrive early and should have been past the roadblock by the time the standoff began. However, the Rapid City Journal reported that some motorists who had tickets for Friday evening’s fireworks show were unable to get through the protests and were standing by their cars watching the standoff.

The Journal also reported that law enforcement in riot gear as well as members of the National Guard had declared an unlawful assembly.

Police later used pepper spray on several protesters to break up the standoff and tow trucks were brought in to remove the vans blocking the road. Arrests were made after protesters ignored a police-imposed deadline to leave.

[End]

About that police-imposed deadline: The live video feed showed that the police present on the scene sat by and did nothing as the Antifa/BLM group showed up and blocked the road. It also showed that it took almost two full hours before the police finally brought in tow trucks and started using pepper spray to clear the damn road, actions that could easily have been achieved far more quickly.

This is unacceptable.

People in this country have an absolute right to protest in public, and that right must be protected. But people do not have any right at all to block streets, disrupt, vandalize and loot businesses or tear down statues. Those acts will only end when police are freed up to take quick and decisive action to end them.

Enough. America has had enough.

Have a Happy Independence Day anyway!

Friday News Roundup: Another Jobs Blowout, Terrorist Clowns Arrested, and Garcetti Owns the Riots

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – Despite the best efforts of the corrupt news media and its Democrat masters to keep the economy shut down, America had another blowout jobs month in June. The U.S. economy added 4.8 million new jobs during the month, again humiliating all the “experts” who had projected about 2.5 million would be added.

That is almost 10 million net new jobs added during May and June, despite the best efforts by Democrat governors in big states like New York, California, Michigan and New Jersey to slow-play their reopenings. In total, 17.8 million American workers remain unemployed thanks to our insane response to all the COVID-19 panic porn, but that number is vastly lower than the 30-50 million all the “experts” were predicting just a few weeks ago.

In response to this latest good employement news, all the markets were up, and the NASDAQ set yet another new all-time record high.

God Bless America.

Another domestic terrorist goes down. – Federal authorities arrested and charged the ringleader of the mob that attempted to tear down the statue of Andrew Jackson in Lafayette Square across from the White House on June 22. The domestic terrorist’s name is Jason Charter, a clown who has bragged on Twitter and other social media about his ties to Antifa.

From a Fox News story:

“They were very organized,” a federal law enforcement official said. “Charter was on top of the statue and directing people … they had acid, chisels, straps and a human chain preventing police from getting to the statue.”

The FBI’s criminal complaint against Charter attaches screengrabs of local news videos and accuses him of also being involved in the destruction of the Albert Pike Historical Statue in Washington this month.

Citing local news video, the FBI alleges that Charter is seen “standing over the toppled Pike Statue, pouring an unknown liquid onto the statue.”

The complaint said: “He is then observed waving others away from the statue, and squatting down behind the statue where his hands are not visible. Seconds later, the statue catches fire. Charter is seen standing over the flames as it burns.”

The complaint also cites a tweet from a Twitter account with the name Jason Charter that says, “Tearing down statues of traitors to the nation is a service to this nation not a crime.”

[End]

So, not exactly the brightest bulb in the light fixture. Just another sad white Millennial nerd with an all-consuming sense of entitlement and zero sense of self-awareness.

Here he is in all his glory:

Jason Charter on Twitter: "Chilling at #BLMPlaza. #DC… "

Another of the ringleaders of the attack on the Jackson statue, a 37 year-old child name Graham Lloyd, turned himself in to Portland authorities on Wednesday. A federal judge there ordered Lloyd’s case transferred to Washington, DC for trial.

In case you’ve forgotten it already amid all of the COVID-19 panic porn spread by the corrupt news media, these and dozens of other arrests of Antifa/BLM terrorists in recent days come in the wake of President Donald Trump’s signing an executive order designed to protect national monuments and exacting long prison terms for such acts.

Cause, meet effect.

Good question, sir. – After the arrest of long-time Jeffrey Epstein associate and procurer Ghislaine Maxwell by the FBI yesterday, one Twitter user posed this question:

Mr. Coudrey names just a handful of the most famous of the many thousands of pedophiles and sex traffickers this Administration has arrested and prosecuted, but it’s a very valid question. Because when you look at that list you see that everyone on it other than Allison Mack was active during the Bush years, and Mack was active throughout the Obama years. So, it’s an interesting question that neither Obama nor Bush want anyone trying to answer.

But here’s another very interesting aspect of that list: Of the seven named there, four have very strong and well-known ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton.

– Anthony Weiner is married to Hillary’s longtime companion, Human Abedin.

– Harvey Weinstein raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for various Clinton campaigns and their crime family fake foundation.

– Bill Clinton is listed on the flight logs of Epstein’s Lolita Express jet more than 30 times.

– Ghislaine Maxwell was so close to Bill that she was actually invited and attended Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. As we can see, she was even awarded a prime aisle seat:

Ghislaine Maxwell at Chelsea Clinton's wedding : Epstein

Aren’t all of these “coincidences” rather amazing? Think about it: How many sex traffickers and pedophiles have you be-friended, employed or invited to parties and weddings in your own life?

But it’s all a “conspiracy theory,” right?

*sigh*

You don’t saaaaayyyyyyyyyyyy… – Marxist Democrat Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti had a rare moment of temporary honesty this week. In reponse to a question by a Breitbart reporter about the cause of the state’s recent spike in COVID-19 “cases,” Garcetti said that “Some of the spread did come from our protests.”

Obviously, it’s notable when any Democrat politician actually admits that their pet cause – the riots – led to a spike in COVID cases. But Garcetti’s use of language in describing the protests is even more interesting to me. Note that he does not refer to them as “the” protests, but “our” protests. Wow.

But wait, there’s more. Breitbart quotes Garcetti has further saying that, “I want to see march for racial justice continue,” he said. “I don’t want to let up, I don’t want to see us just disappear.” Not “them” or “the protests,” but “us.”

We have known all along that these riots were staged events, carefully planned and organized by Antifa and BLM, who serve as the domestic terrorist arms of the Democrat Party, but it is a rare Democrat politician indeed who is so self-unaware that he willingly admits his ownership of them in public.

That is all.

Is Provo, Utah Ground Zero?

Could Provo, Utah become ground zero? – Here’s a little experiment for you to conduct this morning. Go to Google or whatever other search engine you use and do a search on “Provo shooting.” Now, try to identify a single story on that topic from a national news media outlet. If you find one, let me know because it is not coming up on my computer.

For those of you who may have missed it, on Monday, BLM rioters actually shot and almost killed a man who was attempting to escape after his car had been surrounded by thugs wielding clubs and other weapons. One man – who has now been arrested – drew a pistol and fired two shots at the man, with one severely wounding him. Videos taken of the incident show at least one additional man pulling a pistol and firing on the car as it drove away.

This is an incredibly dangerous escalation in the violence that BLM and Antifa have been committing on the streets of major cities for the past five weeks, yet it gets not a peep out of our utterly corrupt national news media. Of course, the media’s ongoing narrative – coordinated daily with the Democrat Party – is that BLM is just a placid and peaceful organization dedicated to the fight against police brutality. Obviously, the Provo story does not fit that false narrative, so it gets ignored.

Also ignored is the fact that Utah is a right to carry state, and that fact led to BLM/Antifa radicals being met in Provo yesterday by a counter-protest featuring hundreds of armed citizens who said they were there to prevent another near-killing or worse from taking place.

From a story at the Salt Lake City Tribune:

“The innocent person getting shot the other day, we as a community want those guys to know we don’t put up with that. We’ll back the police,” said a counterprotester who only gave his first name, Weston. “The road is for people to drive their vehicles on and we have a right to travel freely.”

“They can have a different opinion, I can respect that,” Weston added, saying he supports protests as long as no one gets hurt.

Police officers estimated the crowd Wednesday grew to between 200 and 300 people, with about two-thirds of the group there in support of racial equity and Black Lives Matter.

Officers blocked off the roads so protesters could march down Center Street to the steps of the Historic Utah County Courthouse. They were flanked by the counterprotesters. A man on a terrace near the top of the Nu Skin Enterprises building pointed a rifle at the crowd, but the movement otherwise remained peaceful.

[End]

Thus, thanks to the police practice all over the country of just allowing these leftist thugs to block streets, trap cars and threaten their occupants with impunity, we now have a situation in Provo in which a single gunshot, whether fired intentionally or accidentally by some goofball who forgot to set his safety, could potentially touch off a bloodbath. This is what stupid police practice forced by ineffectual politicians leads to folks – it is nothing more or less than an inevitable outcome.

Given the violent nature and goals of the Marxist thugs who lead BLM and Antifa, it is frankly amazing that we have not already seen a bloodbath take place. Well, other than in Chicago, where bloodbaths with 100 or so shot and a dozen or two innocent citizens murdered are regular weekend occurrences under Mayor Lori Lightfoot. But I digress.

And if you still somehow labor under the media-promoted illusion that these BLM thugs are just innocent Americans fighting for social justice, look what they did last night in Portland, Oregon:

What, are the elks in the Portland area racists now?

These thugs are not innocents; they aren’t well-meaning people fighting for social justice. They are Marxists, violent anarchists whose goal is the ultimate destruction of the foundations of the American Republic.

If local officials in Provo and other cities around the country aren’t extremely careful, Monday’s escalation of violence there could ultimately end up being remembered as another shot heard ’round the world, and not in a good way.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: The COVID-19 Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves

The beatings will continue until morale improves. – California Governor Gavin Newsom re-implemented lockdown orders yesterday in 19 of the state’s most populous counties, as reported by Fox News:

California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a new round of lockdown measures Wednesday, ordering 19 counties to close all indoor operations for several business sectors, including restaurants, as the state grapples with a resurgence of coronavirus cases.

In addition to bars being forced to shut down temporarily, restaurants, wineries, movie theaters, family entertainment venues, zoos, museums and cardrooms must halt operations in selected communities, Newsom said Wednesday.

Businesses can continue to operate if they can move operations outdoors.

“This doesn’t mean restaurants are shut down,” Newsom, a Democrat, said at a briefing. “It means that we’re trying to take the activities, as many activities as we can — these mixed activities, these concentrated activities — and move them outdoors, which is a way of mitigating the spread of this virus.”

The list of affected counties ran up and down the state: Contra Costa, Fresno, Glenn, Imperial, Kern, Kings, Los Angeles, Merced, Orange, Riverside, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Joaquin, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Solano, Stanislaus, Tulare and Ventura counties.

[End]

So, thousands more businesses hampered beyond profitability or lost completely, tens of thousands more Californians back to the unemployment roles, all in a re-try of a strategy that has already been proven to be utterly ineffective.

And that’s not all:

Beaches in Los Angeles County, along with piers and bicycle paths, will close beginning Friday through Monday in an effort to prevent a repeat of Memorial Day weekend when large crowds gathered in close proximity and largely ignored safety measures.

All parking facilities at state beaches in Southern California and the Bay Area will also be closed for the upcoming weekend. The closures reverse the reopening process that began weeks ago after months of unprecedented lockdowns.

The state first began to “toggle back” reopenings over the weekend when it ordered bar closures in seven counties that are seeing increases in infections.

Ahead of the holiday weekend, the governor has voiced concerns about people gathering with friends and family, which he said could lead to complacency and more virus transmissions. He is also urging municipalities to rethink firework displays.

[End]

Ok, so no gathering with friends and family? But what about all those riots and protests and demonstrations by the Antifa/BLM domestic terrorist arm of the Democrat Party?

Oh, hey, those are fine:

Well of course they are. Allowing this dichotomy of government action to continue to go on is inhumanly depraved. People can’t go to church, can’t attend movies, can’t hug their grandparents, can’t let their children play in a park or on a beach without the Democrat governor or mayor sending in the police. But let 5,000 potential rioters pack themselves tightly into a public space for a few hours to chant obscene slogans advocating de-funding and murdering police officers, and the governors and mayors can’t be bothered to lift a finger.

You just could never make this stuff up, folks, not in a million bazillion years.

Meanwhile, in Texas, a different kind of protest action rose up. – Taking a cue from the leftists at Antifa/BLM, a Kilgore bar owner organized what he calls the “Bar Lives Matter” protest against the orders of Texas Governor Greg Abbott on Wednesday:

Austin, Texas protest lockdown bars

From a story at the New York Post:

Bar owners in Texas staged a protest in reaction to the state’s order to shut them down for a second time due to the coronavirus, reports said.

Tee Allen Parker, owner of the Machine Shed Bar and Grille, named Tuesday’s event “Bar Lives Matter” in an apparent reference to the Black Lives Matter movement against police brutality.

Parker, whose establishment is in Kilgore, Texas, roughly two hours south of Dallas, is already suing Texas Gov. Greg Abbot over the bar closures — which he claims are devastating his livelihood and forcing many of his peers into bankruptcy, according to CBS Austin.

“This one individual is picking and choosing winners and losers,” Jared Woodfill, an attorney for Parker, told the outlet. “Gov. Abbott has chosen to sentence bar owners to bankruptcy.”

As a part of its most recent coronavirus order, Texas did not close down or limit capacity at other businesses — like hair salons, tattoo parlors, and nail studios. The order did require restaurants to operate at 50 percent capacity.

“You can’t tell me that my tiny little bar is the problem. He’s the problem,” Parker previously told the Washington Post. “He’s targeting us, and it’s discrimination.”

[End]

I have been an off-and-on fan of Gov. Abbott, but it is very hard to argue with Parker’s statement that the Governor and his “Strike Force” of advisors, not the bars, are the real problem. Just like Newsom, Gov. Abbott has done next-to-nothing to crack down on the massive demonstrations and protest actions that include no social distancing and very little mask-wearing that happened in Texas’s major cities during June. Similarly, Abbott continues to do next-to-nothing to educate the Texas public about the massive fraud the state’s hospitals are committing in their reporting of new “cases” in their craven efforts to grab as much federal money as possible.

To single out bars amid all of the other establishments at which Texans congregate closely in groups is obviously discriminatory and very likely violates both the U.S. and Texas constitutions. From April through June, it was easy to pound solely on Democrat governors for their depravity in the face of this viral gift from China, but Abbott and Arizona’s Mike Ducey are making it very difficult to continue drawing that distinction.

Better temper that optimism over a Wuhan Virus “vaccine.” – Stocks all over the world rose overnight and the U.S. markets are poised for a big opening today due to optimistic news regarding the development of several COVID-19 vaccines.

From a Reuters story:

NEW YORK, July 1 (Reuters) – U.S. stocks moved higher on Wednesday as rising hopes of a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine eased concerns another round of lockdowns was likely following a record surge in coronavirus cases in the United States.

Pfizer Inc’s shares rose nearly 5% after the drugmaker said a COVID-19 vaccine being developed with German biotech firm BioNTech showed promise and was found to be well-tolerated in early-stage human trials.

The gains made Pfizer shares one of the top boosts to both the S&P 500 and Dow Industrials while U.S.-listed shares of BioNTech gained more than 8%, helping improve the mood on Wall Street after the United States registered 47,000 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday, the biggest one-day spike since the start of the pandemic.

Investors were also encouraged by some upbeat economic data as coronavirus-induced lockdowns have eased. A report on Wednesday showed a slump in global manufacturing had ebbed in June, with U.S. figures hitting their highest level in more than a year.

[End]

That all sounds great, right? Trouble is, the day before we saw this announcement largely ignored by our corrupt news media:

Do you understand what that’s telling you? It’s telling you that the FDA is planning to refer to any medical treatment that produces 50% better results than a damn sugar pill as a “vaccine.” What exactly is 50% better than zero?

So, if you still labor under the illusion that Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates are going to ride to the rescue this coming winter with a miracle cure for the Wuhan Virus, you are in for one enormous disappointment.

That’s not going to happen.

Our country must do the same thing with COVID-19 that we have done with every previous flu strain: Learn to live with it. Protect the most vulnerable, practice common sense safety measures and effectively treat those who become ill. All of this other stuff and fear porn flying around in the public domain thanks mainly to Fauci, our main current national menace, is just so much nonsense designed frighten you into submission.

We are in a very dangerous place at the moment. Be careful out there.

That is all.

CHOP Chopped: Hypocrite Seattle Mayor Finally Lets Cops do Their Jobs

Jenny Durkan to the rescue! er, three weeks late… – It turns out that all you had to do to get the CHOP cleared out of the midst of Seattle was to send in the police in force, and do it before noon, while all the depraved occupants were still sleeping.

This morning, after a fellow Marxist on the Seattle City Council had organized a protest action in front of the Mayor’s home, she sent in the cavalry to rid her city of the armed militants who had illegally occupied the area for the past month or so. Obviously, the only way to convince a commie Democrat mayor to let the police do their jobs is to make he or she feel personally threatened, a mistake the Antifa/BLM thugs made Sunday evening.

Thus, at about 5:00 PT this morning, the nitwit Marxist Mayor issued this executive order:

Image

Moments later, the legal residents of the CHOP area were treated scenes like these:

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best – who has been prevented from doing her job for the past month by the nitwit Marxist Mayor – issued the following statement as her officers went about their business:

Image

So, the filth and vermin are being cleaned off the streets and, as noted above, at least 20 of the agitators have been arrested. Given that Seattle most likely has a Democrat district attorney who is bought and paid for by George Soros front groups, it is highly unlikely that any of those 20 will do any real jail time unless there are charged with federal crimes by the FBI agents who reportedly accompanied the local police this morning.

Now all of the brain-dead nitwit Seattle residents who elected all of these Marxist Democrat leaders in the first place can go back to living their brain-dead lives and cast more brain-dead votes for Marxist Democrats this November. Because they’re too brain-dead to understand that that’s how they got into this situation in the first place.

And so it goes.

Wednesday News Roundup: Fauci is a Menace, an Environmentalist’s Apology, BLM/Antifa Shooting in Provo

Just one more reason to lock Dr. Anthony Fauci in a broom closet and lose the key. – Back in January, Dr. Fauci – who has never found a cure for any virus and is yet to get a single thing right about this one – assured us that COVID-19 presented no immediate threat to the United States.

Yesterday, during testimony before a Senate committee, Fauci said this about a new viral gift from China:

Why is this menace to our society still employed by the federal government, and still making media appearances on behalf of the Trump Administration? His ongoing presence in the national debate is even more malevolent and destructive than that of Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff.

That’s why the lone bright spot in yesterday’s hearing came from Dr. Rand Paul, Senator from Kentucky, who sliced, diced and ground Fauci’s unbridled hubris into a million pieces. From a report at Political Insider:

“Fatal conceit is the concept that central planning with decision making concentrated in a few hands can never fully grasp the millions of complex, individual interactions occurring simultaneously in the marketplace. It is a fatal conceit to believe any one person or small group of people has the knowledge necessary to direct an economy or dictate public health behaviour,” Senator Paul explained.

“I think government health experts during this pandemic need to show caution in their prognostications. It’s important to realize that if society meekly submits to an expert, and that expert is wrong, a great deal of harm may occur. When we allow one man’s policy or one group of small men or women to be foisted on an entire nation,” he continued.

Senator Paul gave the example of experts demanding school closures, in order to control the spread of the coronavirus. This is despite solid examples from all over the world, that show no surge in cases when schools open. Contact tracing studies in China, the U.K., Netherlands, and Iceland also failed to find a single case of child to adult infection.

“Perhaps our planners might think twice before they weigh in on every subject. Perhaps our government advisors might hold their tongue,” Paul argued.

“Why weigh in with these opinions that we have no knowledge of? They are forecasts that may well be wrong. Perhaps our experts might consider the undue fear they are instilling in teachers who are now afraid to go back to work. We shouldn’t presume that a group of experts somehow knows what’s best for everyone,” he added.

[End]

Dr. Paul did not call Fauci out by name, but it is obvious who he was referring to in his remarks. Whether Fauci, stewed as he is in a toxic mixture of arrogance and media adulation, took any of it to heart is doubtful.

This little man is a national menace.

Environmentalist Dr. Michael Shellenberger stands as a stark contrast to Dr. Fauci. Shellenberger is the rarest of rare individuals in the world of climate change environmentalism – an expert who understands the limits of his own ability to predict the future using the same kind of faulty computer models that once told us we would lose 2 million Americans to COVID-19, and who understands the incredible damage to global society that has been committed by those in his profession.

Yesterday, Shellenberger published a piece at Quillette.com titled, “On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare.” The title is self-descriptive of the content.

Here’s an excerpt:

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem. I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.

But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as expert reviewer of its next assessment report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public.

Here are some facts few people know:

  • Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction”

  • The Amazon is not “the lungs of the world”

  • Climate change is not making natural disasters worse

  • Fires have declined 25 percent around the world since 2003

  • The amount of land we use for meat—humankind’s biggest use of land—has declined by an area nearly as large as Alaska

  • The build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explain why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and California

  • Carbon emissions are declining in most rich nations and have been declining in Britain, Germany, and France since the mid-1970s

  • The Netherlands became rich, not poor while adapting to life below sea level

  • We produce 25 percent more food than we need and food surpluses will continue to rise as the world gets hotter

  • Habitat loss and the direct killing of wild animals are bigger threats to species than climate change

  • Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels

  • Preventing future pandemics requires more not less “industrial” agriculture

I know that the above facts will sound like “climate denialism” to many people. But that just shows the power of climate alarmism.

[End]

Go read the piece in full. It’ll be the best 10 minutes you spend all day.

I keep telling everyone that BLM and Antifa are just different names for the same terrorist groups. – Yesterday in Provo, Utah, Black Lives Matter engaged in a dangerous escalation of its tactics, as one of the group’s activists actually shot a man who was attempting to escape from a mob of BLM thugs who had surrounded his car:

Despicably, the corrupt news media attempted to portray the driver as the bad guy, until enterprising people on Twitter slowed down and enhanced the video to clearly show that it was a BLM activist who did the shooting. The utter depravity of our news media today simply knows no depths.

This morning, Provo police announce they have arrested a suspect:

The police go on to say:

Police also arrested Samantha Darling, 27-year-old resident of Ogden City, and booked her into custody at the Utah County Jail for a charge of Obstruction of Justice and Rioting. The Provo Police Department extends its thanks to citizens…

who gave evidence and testimony to investigators and to allied agencies and officers who assisted this investigation, notably Ogden and Salt Lake City Police Departments. The investigation of criminal acts incident to protest events in Provo last night is ongoing.

[End]

Rumors flew yesterday of a second gunman on the opposite side of the street also drawing a pistol and aiming it at the vehicle, but no proof has come to light thus far.

Regardless, this incident demonstrates a very dangerous escalation of the Antifa/BLM insurgency in our country. It’s obvious that President Trump would prefer to avoid calling in the National Guard to put these riots down, but the escalating violence and animalistic behavior increasingly exhibited by these Marxist radicals, combined with the refusal by local officials to take effective action, could ultimately leave him no choice.

They’re shooting people now, Mr. President. The National Guard and your powers to declare national emergencies exist for a reason. Time is growing short to make use of them.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan is a Raging, Despicable Hypocrite

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan couldn’t be bothered to try to protect her city’s citizens when they were seeing their property destroyed by rioters for two weeks in early June. She didn’t have a care in the world for business owners who had their stores looted and vandalized. She stood by and made fun of residents and workers in the 6 square block area of her city that was taken over by Antifa and BLM thugs and dubbed first the CHAZ and then the CHOP.

The Mayor praised the CHAZ/CHOP as a new “summer of love,” and continued to defend it even after her chief of police expressed her concern about not being able to help people in that zone of depravity who were being assaulted and beaten up. She even defended the heavily armed leftist criminals who ran the place after the first murder that happened there, only finally relenting and claiming she was going to let her police rid the zone of its human pestilence last weekend after a second murder had taken place.

But boy, let a member of her city council organize a protest action in front of her house and suddenly Mayor Jenny Durkan is an outraged woman of action.

From a piece by Sara Carter:

Seattle’s Mayor Jenny Durkan on Sunday issued a statement after a group gathered outside her home to protest her decision to dismantle their autonomous zone, saying the protestors have no “regard” for her “safety.”

“Mayor Durkan and her family are in the state program to keep their address confidential because of the death threats mostly related to her work as Seattle’s U.S. Attorney under President Obama,” a statement from the mayor’s office read. “Instead of working to make true change, Councilmember Sawant continues to choose political stunts. Tonight she did so without regard for the safety of the Mayor and her family. The Mayor was not even home – she was working at City Hall. Seattle can and should peacefully demonstrate but should not put families and children at risk.”

[End]

That was on Sunday. Today, she issued a letter to the city council requesting that it “punish or expel” councilwoman Sawant for essentially doxxing her:

Mayor Durkan is justified in being concerned for her family over this leftist idiot’s decision to organize a potentially violent group of domestic terrorists to protest at her home. She is also the world’s worst hypocrite for refusing to express any similar concerns for the people of her city as their property was destroyed and their lives placed in danger as Durkan sat by and did nothing.

Bottom line: Jenny Durkan is today’s Worst Person in the World.

That is all.

Monday News Roundup: America has a Real Pandemic of Circus Clowns

The circus clownery will continue in Minneapolis until the complaining stops. – Members of the Minneapolis City Council voted to defund the city’s police department on Friday. What happened next will shock you. No, wait – if you’ve been paying attention, it really won’t shock you at all.

From a report at the Daily Caller:

Minneapolis is spending $4,500 a day on private security for three city council members who support defunding the police after allegedly receiving threats, a local report published Friday showed.

Private security details cost Minneapolis taxpayers roughly $63,000 over the past three weeks, a spokesman for the city said, according to a Fox 9 report. Council members Andrea Jenkins, Phillipe Cunningham and Alondra Cano are outspoken supporters of efforts to defund the Minneapolis Police Department, the report stated.

Neither Cunningham, Jenkins nor Cano have responded to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

Cunningham did respond to Fox 9’s request for comment, telling the outlet through a text message that, “I don’t feel comfortable publicly discussing the death threats against me or the level of security I currently have protecting me from those threats.” The security detail is temporary, he noted.

[End]

Classic Democrat dishonesty: 

  1. Vote to implement a policy that will undoubtedly harm taxpayers;
  2. Lie about getting death threats;
  3. Force the taxpayer to pay out the wazoo for your own personal private security.

These people are despicable. Here they are in all their glory:

Minneapolis City Council members get private security detail after ...

They are the faces of the city’s looming destruction.

Starbucks would like to interrupt your morning coffee by brainwashing you. – Starbucks announced yesterday that it is “pausing” all social media advertising so that it can make sure it is spreading the exact brainwashing messages the Democrat Party demands. In a note posted on its website, the company had this carefully-constructed lawyered-to-death inanity to say:

We believe in bringing communities together, both in person and online, and we stand against hate speech. We believe more must be done to create welcoming and inclusive online communities, and we believe both business leaders and policy makers need to come together to affect real change.

We will pause advertising on all social media platforms while we continue discussions internally, with our media partners and with civil rights organizations in the effort to stop the spread of hate speech.

[End]

So, be ready next time you choose to support this leftist corporation: You might have to have a discussion about your being a racist while you wait for your latte’.

Still think Antifa and BLM are just getting away with their destruction of our cities? – You might want to think again:

The wheel of American justice turns slowly, but it grinds exceedingly fine.

Corrupt News Media today: “Aerial footage shows massive crowds rallying to celebrate #Pride in Chicago.”

Corrupt News Media in two weeks: “Chicago officials shocked at massive outbreak of new COVID-19 cases among city’s gay community. Cause a complete mystery.”

*sigh*

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. – As the city’s murder rate quadruples as a direct result of his insane, anti-police leadership, New York City Mayor Warren Wilhelm spent the day Sunday handing out masks …. TO PEOPLE ALREADY WEARING MASKS!:

The man is just a giant, evil buffoon.

Meanwhile, this was happening:

Say goodbye to that billion dollar tourist industry, New Yorkers. And remember: You elected this guy, saw what an abject, evil moron he is for four longs years, and then you elected him again.

You are reaping what you have sown. Too bad.

Speaking of abject, bellowing buffoons… – For reasons that remain unclear, clownish sports commentator Dick Vitale put on his bermuda shorts and went out on the streets of Miami to shame Floridians for not wearing masks over the weekend.

As he was lecturing everyone else for not wear a mask, this braying jackass revealed he doesn’t even know how to wear his own:

Holy crap. You just can’t make this stuff up, never in a million years. The clowns will soon outnumber the rest of us. Maybe they already do.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: Media Repeats 2016 Playbook, Barr’s Doing Plenty, Pelosi is Nora Desmond

News media, June 2016: Trump admits to grim realization that he is losing!!!!!

News media, November 2016: D’oh!!!!!!

News media, June 2020:

*sigh*

News media this week: William Barr is doing nothing to hold rioters accountable!!!!!

William Barr this week, from a story at WND:

Barr: 500 criminal investigations launched against leftist rioters

Indictments already at hand for arson, destruction of property

Attorney General William Barr said Thursday that the Department of Justice is conducting about 500 investigations into acts of arson and destruction associated with the protests and riots over the past several weeks.

The DOJ is ramping up investigations into the activists who participated in destruction of private and public property over the last several weeks, Barr said during an episode of the Verdict podcast with Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.

“We’ve had scores of indictments so far for such things as arson, destruction of federal property,” Barr said, adding that the DOJ is going full bore on a probe. “We have right now about 500 investigations underway, so it’s picking up pace. We are committed to holding accountable the people who engaged in this.”

He added: “State and local are not doing their jobs.”

[End]

Of course, “state and local” is a polite way of saying that Democrat governors and mayors are preventing their local law enforcement officials from doing their jobs. Because that’s what Democrats do these days.

Then there was this DOJ announcement Saturday night:

Oh.

And this from Friday:

Golly. Sure seems like he’s doing a lot.

Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi can’t even remember George Floyd’s name, doing her best impression of Nora Desmond in the process:

If you want fake news, bookmark the Washington Post. – Swear to God, this all came from the same Washington Post story:

ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm….

Catherine Herridge won’t be tolerated by CBS News much longer. – But while she is there, she’s doing terrific work reporting the truth. Of course, doing that will eventually get her fired by CBS, just like what happened to Lara Logan and Sharryl Atkisson before her. Watch:

NOOSECAR Update: For anyone keeping count, hoaxer Bubba Wallace finished 22nd in the NASCAR event on Saturday. I’m just shocked that all the virtue-signaling white drivers didn’t just pretend to have car problems so Wallace could finally win a race.

That is all.
