Saturday News Roundup: NBC News is a Dumpster Fire, and Don’t Think Seattle Can’t Happen to You

This is the current state of NBC News. – Dr. Joseph Fair is a virologist who also happens to be a “medical contributor” to NBC News. Across the months of May and June, Dr. Fair made numerous appearances on the “Today” show and other NBC/MSNBC platforms to give viewers all the gory details about his long and difficult struggle with what he claimed was a case of the Wuhan Virus, COVID-19.

The only problem is, he never had COVID-19.

From a report at the Daily Caller:

Fair suggested during an interview on the “Today” show May 14 that he may have gotten the virus through his eye during a flight. He conducted the interview while in a New Orleans hospital, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

NBC News originally told viewers about the negative tests, but abandoned that part of the narrative as the story continued, according to Steve Krakauer’s “Fourth Watch” newsletter. During a June 14 interview with Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press,” no one noted that Fair had already tested negative at least five times, according to Krakauer.

“In the end, NBC’s viewers were left with two very alarming – and false – impressions,” Krakauer wrote. “First, that an expert virologist can take every precaution but can still catch COVID-19 through his eyes. False. Second, that tests can be so untrustworthy that you can have multiple negative tests and still have coronavirus.”

NBC News has not yet updated its May 14 article claiming the virologist got “coronavirus despite being in good health and taking precautions.”

[End]

Oh.

NBC News is a raging dumpster fire, but that just makes it equal to every other broadcast or cable news station outside of OANN and NewsMax.

Everything you see on any cable or broadcast network “news” program is most likely a lie. Every. Damn. Thing.

Something will be happening with Venezuela, and the U.S. will be heavily involved. – At least, that’s what President Donald Trump told an interviewer with the Spanish language channel Telemundo yesterday.

From a report at Breitbart:

Host Jose Diaz-Balart asked, “For you, Venezuela, is it Guaido, is it Maduro, is it U.S. intervention?”

Trump responded, “It’s freedom for their people. It’s freedom. Venezuela was a rich country 15 years ago, and it’s been destroyed by two people, but a system, a horrible system. … And something will happen with Venezuela. That’s all I can tell you. Something will be happening with Venezuela.”

Diaz-Balart then asked, “Through the United States?”

Trump responded, “We’ll be very much involved.”

[End]

Just a reminder that Barack Obama considered Hugo Chavez, the first brutish socialist thug ruler of Venezuela, to be a role model, and that the socialist model currently being forced on helpless Joe Biden by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the model that turned that formerly 1st-world, wealthy nation into a 3rd world hell hole in the span of a decade.

It really doesn’t seem like something the U.S. should aspire to emulate, does it? Pay attention.

Be glad you don’t live in Seattle. – I almost started this segment by saying “pity the poor people in Seattle,” but hey, they’re the morons who elected the current Mayor, the evil Jenny Durkan, and a city council filled with radical thugs, so pity really isn’t justified, is it?

Ok, there are innocent, sensible people in that messed up town who didn’t support any of those thugs: You should expect to see a mass exodus of such people from that community in the very near future, as they flee a city that elected Democrats are making sure descends into outright chaos.

On Friday, a majority of the Seattle City Council agreed to support a proposition that would cut the police department’s budget by 50%. The plan would be to reallocate those funds to “other community needs.” It is not clear what those “other needs” are exactly, but presumably they would include lots of Unicorns and rainbows. Because these are Democrats we’re talking about here, after all.

Think about the insanity of this for a moment: Seattle is already such a lawless jurisdiction that members of the city council itself helped a group of Antifa/BLM Marxist thugs illegally seize a 6 square-block section of the Capitol Hill area – including a police precinct building – there for a solid month as the Mayor refused to allow the police department to intervene. It was only when those same Marxist thugs – again helped along by at least one member of the city council – broke into a gated neighborhood and staged an illegal protest action at the Mayor’s home that the despicable Ms. Durkan finally allowed the police to break up the illegal insurgency.

It is tempting for those of us living in distant parts of this giant country to look at the mass insanity taking place in Seattle, Minneapolis, New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta and Portland and laugh with condescension about it all, but that is a dangerous reaction for us to take. This kind of stuff can hit very close to home very quickly.

In my home state of Texas, the Democrat morons running the city of Austin have now turned its downtown area into a homeless camp that is beginning to rival those seen in Los Angeles and San Francisco. In Houston, the Democrat Mayor there, Sylvester Turner, acted this week to cancel the Republican Party’s state convention that was to be held there, using COVID-19 as his excuse, a bare week before it was to happen. The GOP has sued, but has little hope of prevailing in time for the event to come off.

Don’t kid yourselves that the kind of nonsense you see happening in far-off states can’t happen in your state: It can, and it will very soon unless each and every one of you gets your butts up off your sofas and goes out and votes in November.

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: Atlanta Riots, Austin De-Funds Police, CDC Pushes Panic Porn

Here we go again. – Riots broke out in Atlanta last night after video emerged of another questionable police killing of a black man. Here is an excerpt from a report at Aljazeera, which sadly is a far more reliable source of actual information these days than most American media outlets:

Atlanta’s Police Department on Sunday released bodycamera and dashboard camera footage of the attempted arrest and fatal shooting of Rayshard Brooks outside a Wendy’s in Georgia’s capital on Friday.

Officers Garrett Rolfe and Devin Brosnan attempted to arrest Brooks after questioning him and getting him to performing inebriation tests.

Footage showed Rolfe attempting to put handcuffs on Brooks before a struggle begins.

Dashcam footage showed the scuffle in more detail, with Brooks, Brosnan and Rolfe all on the floor, before a taser is fired at Rolfe. Three gunshots are then heard while the three are off camera.

Rolfe’s death sparked protests in Atlanta on Saturday night, leading to the Wendy’s where Rolfe was shot being set alight.

[End]

So, in this case, we have a guy who got drunk, passed out in his car while presumably trying to get a burger at the local Wendy’s, and ends up dead when he resists arrest. Knee-jerk defenders of the police are going to yell, “he was resisting arrest!!!!!!”

Yeah, and so what? He was shot in the back while running away from the police officers, drunk out of his mind. Why in the world would a properly trained police officer even pull his gun in that situation, much less pull the trigger? It is absolutely mind-boggling that this specific incident can possibly take place immediately in the wake of three weeks of social unrest over the police murder of George Floyd.

It almost makes you want to think all of this stuff is pre-planned, doesn’t it? But nah, that couldn’t be the case.

Get ready for an entire summer of this stuff, folks, because it’s coming.

Well…’bye. – Atlanta’s police chief resigned in the midst of the rioting, and nobody seems to be interested in talking her out of it:

Atlanta’s police chief resigned and a police officer was terminated after the shooting of a black man, Rayshard Brooks, who later died.

Mr. Brooks, 27 years old, of Atlanta, was shot outside a Wendy’s restaurant Friday night and died soon after. Videos of parts of his struggle with police and its aftermath, widely shared on social media, sparked anger in the city, amid the continuing national outcry over the police killing of George Floyd last month.

“Out of a deep and abiding love for this City and this department, I offered to step aside as police chief,” said Chief Erika Shields, who served in the city’s police department for over two decades, in a statement released Saturday evening. “It is time for the city to move forward and build trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve.”

[End]

Good move. Given the performance of her officers in this case, you kind of have to wonder what in the hell Ms. Shields has been doing to try to build that trust over her 20 years on the force.

Well Bye GIFs | Tenor

“And you shall reap what you sow.” – It’s always great to see personnel from CNN being assaulted by the rioters they’ve spent the last 3 weeks pretending are “peaceful protesters.” Here’s a nice example from last night in Atlanta:

This bus driver shows us the proper technique for dealing with a street thug:

We need more real men in America just like him.

The Wuhan Virus Panic Porn campaign continues to accelerate. – Hey, remember when the goal of the COVID-19 mitigation efforts was to “flatten the curve” in order to ensure that our hospitals weren’t overrun with patients? Remember when the people at the CDC, Antony Fauci and Deborah Birx assured us that was the case?

Yeah, that’s all gone now, subsumed in the frenzy to prevent President Trump from re-starting his campaign rallies. This morning Trump’s own CDC is quoted by The Hill as saying we might have to shut things down again as “cases” are rising in half a dozen states:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Friday strict social distancing measures that were put in place in March may have to be implemented again if coronavirus cases in the U.S. rise dramatically, CNBC reports.

“Right now, communities are experiencing different levels of transmission occurring, as they gradually ease up onto the community mitigation efforts and gradually reopen,” Jay Butler, CDC’s deputy director for infectious diseases, told reporters Friday.

“If cases begin to go up again, particularly if they go up dramatically, it’s important to recognize that more mitigation efforts such as what were implemented back in March may be needed again,” Butler said. It’s not clear what is considered a dramatic rise.

Again, we have flattened the curve. We have prevented the hospitals from being overrun with COVID-19 patients, if indeed any such possibility ever actually existed, which is unlikely. Despite the media’s politically-motivated hysteria over what they fraudulently continue to refer to as “cases,” deaths due to the virus continue to drop daily.  The number of hospitalizations are going up in some areas, and that is actually a positive sign that more and more testing is being done and that patients are now able to have elective and non-emergency surgeries performed.

Given that Fauci is even denying that this increase in the number of “cases” doesn’t mean there’s a “second wave” coming, it is obvious we have a big problem at the CDC, at least in terms of messaging if not in terms of mismanagement. If these people can’t get their talking points straight, then they need to be prohibited from speaking to the corrupt news media, which is only interested in whipping up a new public panic about the virus.

Oh, hey, that whole “defund the police” deal is not just a blue state thing. – The city council for the socialist enclave of Austin, Texas did this on Thursday:

“You cannot solve a public safety crisis by creating another,” Corby Jastrow, president of the Greater Austin Crime Commission, told the Austin City Council on Thursday.

After a 12-hour meeting, the city council voted unanimously to partially defund the Austin Police Department.

The council’s decision directs the city manager to halt any new sworn officer staff positions, as well as redirect money from the department’s budget and use it toward other social services. The city manager will bring back proposals to the council over the next few months as they decide specific numbers for next year’s city budget.

As far as how much to cut, some socialist and leftist groups have been petitioning the council to take away at least $100 million—a quarter—from the police department’s budget next year.

Hundreds of citizens, including some members of the Democratic Socialists of America, testified to the council on Thursday in favor of the proposal, while some voiced a public safety concern over the decision to defund.

[End]

That’s right, folks: The vote was unanimous. There is not a single member on Austin’s city council willing to defend the city’s police department. You should expect to see similar votes on similar idiotic actions to come from the Texas cities of San Antonio, Dallas and maybe even Houston soon.

Make no mistake about it: There will be massive flight of actual taxpayers from every city that takes these actions. Decades of gentrification and urban revival efforts will go completely to waste. Tens of thousands of minority-owned businesses will die. These cities will all be looking like re-runs of 1980s Detroit soon.

Thanks, Democrats!

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: MSNBC Hires Coup Plotter, Whitmer Poured out in Court, and More

Oh, sure. Why not? – Just when you thought MSNBC was incapable of sinking any lower, they fooled you again. Late Friday the fake news cable channel introduced its new “legal analyst”: Former FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

Conservative Twitter is outraged by this hiring, but why? Shouldn’t we all have expected it? After all, MSNBC already employs John Brennan and other Obamagate coup cabal honchos. I’m just amazed they haven’t hired Peter Strzok yet. I mean, if your “news” operation is nothing more than a propaganda outlet for the Deep State, why not go all in?

My only question is whether the homely Ms. Page’s ghoulish face will actually be shown on TV, or will she send her “analyses” in via text, with a CC: to lover boy Strzok?

Are you listening, Al Sharpton? – These are the truest words ever spoken:

Phil Murphy doubles down on destroying New Jersey. – In the midst of the spectacles of mass demonstrations in which no one is staying at home or washing their hands or doing any social distancing, Democrat governors are continuing to extend their politically-motivated lockdowns.

Phil Murphy in New Jersey announced on Friday that he is going to keep the Garden State locked down through July 5 for no valid reason whatsoever.

Meanwhile, not even Dr. Fauci is keeping up this pretense anymore. – In a CNN interview yesterday, the little economy destroyer said schools should reopen in the Fall, although still with mitigations:

“In some situations there will be no problem for children to go back to school,” Fauci said during the interview. “In others, you may need to do some modifications. You know, modifications could be breaking up the class so you don’t have a crowded classroom, maybe half in the morning, half in the afternoon, having children doing alternate schedules.”

Are you listening, Gov. Murphy? Probably not.

But there is massive WINNING in Michigan. – 77 year-old barber Karl Manke won a big victory before the Michigan state Supreme Court. In a 7-0 decision, the Court poured out Michigan’s abusive Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the activist appeals court judges who have abused Manke for the past few weeks, allowing Manke to retain his barber’s license and keep his shop open while the case against him is fully considered by the Court of Appeals. A 3-judge panel of the Appeals court had ordered Manke to close while the case was being heard.

Manke’s attorney, David Kallman, called it the “biggest, most lopsided victory of his career.” Life as an aspiring banana republic dictator is getting harder and harder for Frau Gretchen.

“De-fund the police! De-fund the police! De-f…wait, what? A new poll? Just 16% support? Are you sure? Ok, ummmmm…Never-mind! Never-mind! Just kiddin’! Just kiddin’!” – In Friday’s Evening Wrap, we told you about the sudden backing down within the Minneapolis City Council from its Thursday calls to “dismantle” and “de-fund” the city’s police department in the wake of the murder of George Floyd.

After a new poll found that that concept is supported by just 16% of those surveyed, the Council decided on Friday to pass a very limited new measure that eliminates the police use of choke holds and requires by-standing officers to intervene when they see a fellow officer using excessive force, as happened to Floyd. These are simply commonsense measures that most Americans already support.

You have to look way down to about the 20th paragraph to find it, but a New York Times report this morning quotes Minneapolis’s worthless, spineless Mayor Jacob Frey as also pulling back any support for de-funding his police department:

Mayor Jacob Frey has said he does not support calls to dismantle the department. On Friday, City Council members voted to accept a civil rights investigation by the Minnesota Department of Human Rights and to adopt updates to the Police Department’s use of force policy that include a ban on chokeholds. The topic of eliminating some of the department’s functions was not discussed.

[End]

Talk about burying the lede. But hey, it’s the New York Times – what did you expect?

Despite this latest show of poll-based cowardice by one city’s radical Democrat city council, however, no one should think that the Democrat Party as a whole is abandoning the idea of abolishing traditional police departments nationwide. That remains the obvious end-game.

They and their corrupt media toadies will now simply double-down on their efforts to brainwash the public to accept this society-destroying notion until the polling numbers become more politically viable. We have an election in 6 months, and any politician actively running on a suicidal notion that only has 16% public support will get killed at the polls. They’ll have to get that support number up into the 40% range before their politicians will risk actual votes on it.

“Uh, Mr. Mayor? We’re gonna need a new emergency response team.” – All 57 members of the City of Buffalo, New York’s emergency response team resigned en masse after two of their members were placed on suspension after an altercation with a fairly old radical leftist protester.

The radical jackass was pushed to the ground by the two officers when he accosted them as they were attempting to break up an ongoing riot on Thursday.

From a report at The Hill:

John Evans, president of the Buffalo Police Benevolent Association, announced the 57-member team’s resignation at a press conference Friday.

“Fifty-seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of two of their members, who were simply executing orders,” Evans told a local NBC affiliate.

[End]

Here’s a video of the incident. You can judge for yourselves:

So, the question here becomes whether the officers used “excessive force” on the old jackass. They certainly did shove him to get him out of the way as they attempted to do their jobs. Are the Buffalo mayor and city council now going to tell their police officers that they must now do nothing as they are harassed and prevented from doing their jobs by radical clowns like this?

If so, they’re going to lose many more officers in the future. As far as I can tell, this guy got exactly what he deserved.

That is all.
