Tuesday News Roundup: Sessions’ Last Stand, Biden/Bottoms 2020, and Fauci is a Menace

Today is Beauregard’s last stand. – Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, the former do-nothing Attorney General who allowed Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller to run the Department of Justice for two solid years, makes his last stand today in Alabama. He trails opponent Tommy Tuberville by a wide margin in the polling leading into today’s GOP primary runoff election to determine which Republican gets to run Democrat Doug Jones out of the U.S. Senate.

In typical blunt fashion, President Donald Trump made his preference in this election known on Twitter yesterday.:

Just a reminder that everything that happened with the Soviet-style Mueller Special Counsel operation stemmed from Jeff Sessions’ own mendacity. This man is one of our country’s worst disasters, and fully deserves the electoral humiliation coming to him today at the hands of Alabama’s voters.

Speaking of our nation’s worst human disasters… – The leftist nitwits at the Dan Abrams operation “Mediaite” got a case of the vapors yesterday after a senior White House staffer shared a mean cartoon targeting Dr. Anthony Fauci, the man who has done more to destroy our nation’s economy and school system than any person alive.

From the piece at Mediaite:

White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications Dan Scavino publicly blasted White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr. Anthony Fauci Sunday on Facebook.

Scavino posted a cartoon by conservative illustrator Ben Garrison which showed Fauci as a faucet flushing the economy down a sink, with labels including “Indefinite lockdown!” and “Shut up and obey!”

“Sorry, Dr. Faucet! At least you know if I’m going to disagree with a colleague, such as yourself, it’s done publicly — and not cowardly, behind journalists with leaks,” Scavino commented. “See you tomorrow!”

[End]

Looks like a pretty accurate cartoon. Mediaite’s only upset because cartoonist Ben Garrison captured the reality of Fauci and all the damage he has done and continues to do to our society so succinctly. The man is a menace to our very survival.

In case you missed it, Fauci complained to one eager reporter the other day that he has not briefed the President in “at least two months.” This is what we know in the real world as great and reassuring news. Given that Fauci has yet to be right about anything at all related to the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems like a peachy idea to keep him the hell away from the President so that policy decisions might be made on actually accurate information coming from others.

If Mr. Trump never speaks to this little menace again, America will be a much safer place.

She’s a leader with real leadership who is leading by exercising leadership with leading. She leads the entire nation by leading with leadership, and leads with more leadership than all those other non-leading leader losers hoping to become Joe Biden’s running mate. – Here is Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ argument for why she should become Joe Biden’s running mate:

Biden/Bottoms 2020! It will be the greatest bumper sticker ever!

Oh, please, please, please let this happen.

News you will not see reported on CNN or the New York Times, part 99,353:

This is what Fredo Cuomo and Jake Tapper refer to as a “civil rights group,” folks. You could never make this stuff up.

A sports journalist piece everyone should read. – Sports journalist Jason Whitlock, who famously called out the NFL and Black Lives Matter last week, published a terrific op-ed at OutKick.com yesterday. It’s a piece every American should read.

Here’s an excerpt:

It’s the media’s addiction to Twitter. We now crowdsource our ethics, standards and guiding principles. The Twitter mob is America’s ombudsman.

Journalism is dead. It’s been sick for a long time. The widespread usage of the internet placed journalism on life support in the 1990s. Facebook and Twitter pulled the plug.

Big Tech killed the greatest human experiment, the United States of America. You can’t sustain freedom and fairness with mob crowdsourced ethics and standards.  By definition, a mob is disorderly, riotous and lawless. A mob is unconcerned with truth.

The theory driving the importance of a “a free press” is that journalists will deliver truthful information to the public and the public will make good decisions based on that information.

Feed the public social media-friendly, clickbait narrative lies disguised as racial-justice truth and you provoke the kind of unrest currently sweeping this nation. Media black lies matter. They agitate old wounds, sow discord and distrust, undermine patriotism and prevent us from addressing real problems.

The annual murder of thousands of black men is a legitimate problem. Social media has us fixated on the annual murder of a half dozen. Black lies matter, especially when they’re used to conceal a political agenda detached from the advancement of freedom.

Journalists should not be political partisans.

[End]

As I keep telling you, the death of journalism threatens to become the death of our country if we do not find some way to hold the corporate, clickbait-focused media giants accountable for their intentional spreading of rank falsehoods. My one disagreement with Whitlock here is that he puts the main focus of his blame on social media, where these thousands of corrupt journalists manifest their outrageous biases every day.

But social media is just a facilitator here, a convenient platform. The truth is that the death of real journalism in our country took hold in our nation’s universities during the 1960s and 1970s with the new focus on “advocacy journalism” replacing the former focus on hard work, proper sourcing and the telling of the objective truth.

The central problem here is that for the last half century students in journalism schools all over the country have been brainwashed to believe that there is actually no such thing as objective truth. Once you lose the concept of truth, then all journalists feel justified in becoming fiction writers and reporters as they intentionally slant the “news” to favor their own personal pet causes.

Fundamentally, this is how a blatantly Marxist, domestic terrorist organization like Black Lives Matter gets turned into a “civil rights group” in the eyes of the entirety of the American media establishment.

The brainwashing will continue until every one of us submits.

That is all.

Sunday News Roundup: No Justice in St. Louis, A Recall Drive Targets Durkan, and Trump Sends Dems a Blunt Message

The only “justice” available in St. Louis is the kind paid for by George Soros. – The St. Louis couple who brandished a pistol and rifle to protect their homes from a group of about 300 aggressive BLM Marxists who had broken down the gate to invade their community had their home invaded again on Friday. This time the invasion – and confiscation of their guns – was conducted by police acting on the orders of Obama-funded city prosecutor Kimberly Gardner:

So, a group of potentially violent rioters can destroy the legally-placed entrance to a gated community and invade private property (the streets in the neighborhood are owned by the HOA) and this “circuit attorney” will do nothing. But anyone who brandishes a permitted firearm as a means of protecting their own home will be subject to search and seizure and potential prosecution.

This is absolutely outrageous, and another instance where we see the U.S. Department of Justice doing nothing to intervene. William Barr, where are you?

The only real justice being executed in the United States right now appears to be whatever comes from the President’s desk. – Corrupt Marxist Minnesota Governor Tim Walz found that out the hard way late Friday evening, as his despicable request for a federal government bailout to repair the riot damage done to Minneapolis was outright denied by the Trump Administration.

From a story at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The federal government has denied Gov. Tim Walz’s request for aid to help rebuild and repair Twin Cities structures that were damaged in the unrest following George Floyd’s death.

Walz asked President Donald Trump to declare a “major disaster” for the state of Minnesota in his request to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on July 2. More than 1,500 buildings were damaged by fires, looting and vandalism in the days of unrest that followed Floyd’s May 25 death in Minneapolis police custody, racking up more than $500 million in damages, according to Walz.

The governor’s spokesman, Teddy Tschann, confirmed late Friday that the request for federal aid was denied.

“The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” Tschann said in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.”

[End]

Oh, darn. Oh, heck. Oh, that nasty old Donald Trump.

Thank God for Donald Trump and his clear-eyed view of this world. These riots were Democrat Party riots. BLM and Antifa, the two domestic terrorist groups that organized and managed the riots, are nothing but Democrat Party armed support groups, just as the Ku Klux Klan was for more than a century in this country. These Democrat Party riots were enabled and urged on by Democrat mayors and Democrat governors and simply do not in any way merit the intervention of the U.S. taxpayer to help to pay for the damage they caused.

This Trump ruling was a big middle finger to Gov. Walz, and it sends a very important signal to the Democrat Party and its armed terrorists: You break it, you buy it.

It is the only proper signal to send.

News you won’t see reported on CNN or MSNBC. – A Washington state judge approved a petition effort to recall despicable Democrat/Marxist Mayor Jenny Durkan, the feckless nitwit who facilitated the June riots in her city that led to the illegal establishment of the infamous CHAZ/CHOP area.

From a story at the Washington Times:

A King County Superior Court judge has approved a petition for an election to recall Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.

The Seattle Times reports the ruling Friday on charges filed by a group of five people last month comes after weeks of local protests against racism and police brutality – sparked by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Once any recall petition is approved, signatures are needed to qualify for a special election ballot. The petitioners must, within 180 days, collect valid signatures from a number of voters equal to 25% of the votes cast in the last election. In this case, signatures from more than 50,000 Seattle voters would be needed.

The Durkan petitioners’ recall effort accuses the mayor of “endanger(ing) the peace and safety of the community” by allowing police to “leak false information about fabricated crimes and threats to the media” and issuing a citywide curfew without sufficient notice to the public. The petitioners also accused Durkan of restricting certain property rights in downtown Seattle and Capitol Hill, the neighborhood where many of the protests took place.

In a response Saturday, Durkan’s chief of staff, Stephanie Formas, said the mayor “consistently has acted to protect the City’s public health and safety and to respect the constitutional rights to peaceful protesters.”

[End]

The statement by Durkan’s chief of staff is an outright lie. Durkan willingly facilitated the actions of the rioters every step of the way, including ordering her police to stand down as the domestic terrorists seized control of the 3rd precinct police building and a city hall annex. She only relented and allowed the police to do their jobs after the rioters broke into her own gated community and vandalized her home.

Seattle Mayor Durkan's 'Summer of Love' - Ricochet

No Mayor in U.S. history – with the possible exceptions of Bill de Blasio and Lori Lightfoot – has more richly deserved to be booted out of office than Durkan. If this recall effort fails, then any thinking person still living in Seattle with the means to do so should flee the area, because all hope for avoiding an inevitable descent into utter chaos will be lost.

Good luck and Godspeed.

That is all.

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!

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.

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.

The Silent Majority is Becoming the New Resistance

Guest Piece by Kelly M.

Sometimes you feel like your head might explode.

Something has happened in this country that I never thought I would see. I have been rendered afraid to speak my mind. I have been rendered mute. Not because I don’t have conviction of what I believe, but because I do.

Whether those of you who don’t agree with my point of view on things believe it or not, this feeling that I have is not unique to me. Nor has this feeling softened or blurred my belief of what is right and wrong. If anything, it’s hardened my commitment. It’s strengthened my beliefs.

This constant outrage and self-righteous preaching and re-writing of history that is going on reminds me of all of the books I’ve read about the resistance movement in France during the second world war. Despite what the folks who call themselves “The Resistance” today might think, they are actually employing the tactics of mental warfare employed by the other side in those dark days of the German occupation.

Yes, all those who are calling out anyone who doesn’t believe what they believe and feel what they feel, who attempt to ruin or shame or humiliate anyone who dares ask questions or challenge their groupthink mantras, those who are calling anyone who supports one candidate instead of their candidate Nazis… are, in fact, the real Nazis.

One doesn’t have to spend much time in the small villages and town squares of France that were once occupied by the Germans to begin to understand the depths of depravity foisted on the French population by the Nazis. Several years ago, my first real understanding of this came when I visited La Musee de la Resistance in L’Isle Sur la Sorgue, in Provence.

The Germans were not able to simply march through France and take it over because the people were weak. Not at all. The French people endured unspeakable horrors. Knowing that most of the military aged men were away at war, the Germans simply tried to enslave French women and children. They terrorized them, they intimidated them, they tried to turn them against each other, and they slowly but devastatingly stole the most important activities of their daily lives and culture. It didn’t happen quickly. Slowly, bit by bit, day by day, insult by insult the Nazis tried to wear down these people by rendering them speechless and powerless.

The Nazis seemed successful, for a time. But they didn’t understand the indomitable human spirit of the French citizens, the women in particular. They mistook silence for acquiescence. They mistook femininity and maternal instinct for softness and submission. They mistook survival instinct for surrender.

Most importantly, the Nazis started to believe that by pillaging and breaking down these communities, they were subduing anyone who dared defy them. The Nazis thought that by turning worlds upside down, destroying churches and seizing the property, homes, and even wives of the French soldiers, they were building themselves up and they viewed the power they’d granted to themselves as an aphrodisiac. They literally thought they were irresistible.

What they didn’t understand was what strong solder the anger and bile the French felt for the Nazis was creating. The humiliation and fear they had sowed in these communities also united them in secret, hidden ways that would have never occurred prior to the despicable hate crimes of the German soldiers.

When churches and communities are destroyed, it’s more than cultural. It’s personal. The cries of relief from the eventually liberated French were accompanied by a low, guttural moan of defiance and resolve to regain what they treasured most from their nearly lost culture.

Yes, when the free world stormed the beaches of Northern France those young soldiers from America, Canada and England were able to surprise and overpower the German hold on Europe and turn the tide of the war. But the liberation of the French didn’t happen without the assistance and wiliness of so many in the French countryside who fed, hid, sheltered and protected those soldiers at great risk to themselves and their families.

So sleep well in your self-satisfied bubble tonight, feeling accomplished because you’ve wrongly, self-righteously, and without an ounce of self-awareness of your own hatred, smugness, and ignorance branded half your fellow citizens racist homophobic maniacal neanderthals. Keep enabling and praising the twenty- and thirty-something children who are actually your masters – they know that your need for them to admire and “be friends with” you allows them to say or do anything with no consequence. They may smile with you in family pictures, but they mock you and see you as nothing more than a mindless simp, a useful idiot.

Look at the empty, dead eyes of these completely unaccomplished, arrogant, miserable young people burning cities, murdering innocents and tearing down statues while filming themselves with cell phones that you’re likely paying for, flaunting useless college degrees that you’ve paid for…it’s so cool that you can say how “woke” you are and how evolved you are because you’ve got such a “brave” kid who is “speaking their truth to power.”

You have passed along your own perpetually outraged mindset to them. But unlike you, they were raised to be enabled and empowered with a complete lack of respect for and ignorance of history, life, law and the meaning of real independence and freedom. Their whole lives have literally been all about them.

We could have had dialogue, but you insisted on monologue. We could have had healing and forgiveness, but you insisted on ripping open old wounds and beating dead horses. You don’t want change, you want to remain mired in past miseries and injustices. Your goal isn’t mutual understanding or mutual forgiveness. Your goal is destruction.

To paraphrase Teddy Roosevelt, you will soon understand that millions of us may be speaking softly, but we understand the importance of big sticks. Don’t be surprised when you’re surprised by the force you’ve created and unleashed.
