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.

Friday News Roundup: Musk Shames Bezos, Whitmer Shames Herself and de Blasio is Just a Giant Shame

Elon Musk confronts Jeff Bezos: Bezos blinks. – Alex Berenson is a former New York Times reporter who has done yeoman’s work on Twitter exposing all the massive false information that has been spread about the Wuhan Virus by the government and the corrupt news media. His information has been quoted here many times over the past few months.

Berenson has just published a new book exposing these merchants of disinformation, titled “Unreported Truths About COVID-19 and Lockdowns”:

Early yesterday, Amazon blocked Berenson’s book from being marketed on its site, citing non-existent “standards” that it does not apply anywhere else. Basically, Berenson was being blocked because his book does not conform to the propaganda being pushed by China and the WHO.

Berenson complained about it on Twitter, where Musk has obviously been following him. Musk responded by tweeting, “This is insane, @JeffBezos,” and “Time to break up @Amazon. Monopolies are wrong!”

Within a few hours, Amazon suddenly restored Berenson’s book to its platform, and a spokesman lamely explained that it had been block due to an “error.” Yeah, sure.

Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer again violates her own edicts. – Gretchen Whitmer, the aspiring banana republic dictator and barber-hater who currently serves as Governor in Michigan, has apparently decided that all of her stay-at-home and social distancing nonsense is completely optional.

On Thursday, she made that clear by doing this:

So, if you’re a protester or a looter or a rioter in Michigan, hey, no worries about all that social distancing and staying-at-home stuff! Frau Gretchen was just kidding.

He’s gone full AOC. Not a good look, Joe. – Joe Biden told a group of climate alarmists yesterday that he’s going all-in on the Green New Deal as a means of not just saving the earth, but also to solve all the problems of racial injustice.

No, I’m not kidding. From a report at the Washington Examiner:

In a virtual fundraiser on Thursday afternoon hosted by Climate Leaders for Biden, the former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate said addressing climate change is urgent “not just to stop the earth from warming, but to address the environmental injustices that have left so many low-income people and people of color more vulnerable to the coronavirus, to asthma and other respiratory problems, the effects of pollution,” according to a pool report.

Biden also touched on mass unemployment due to coronavirus pandemic lockdowns, saying that “creating millions, over 10 million good-paying jobs” while investing in clean energy is “an enormous opportunity to rebuild the backbone of this country.”

Addressing “a stimulus to create clean energy jobs that will spur the economic recovery,” Biden said that, “I think that we’re on our way, and we can be on our way to a significant economic recovery, not just to build back but to build back better. Building back what we had before this crisis is not enough.”

“Invest in jobs and the technology of the future,” Biden said. “The clean energy infrastructure is at the very top of the list.”

[End]

This is all Church of Climate Change dogma straight out of the Green New Deal, a collection of mindless shibboleths that have no basis in reality. But hey, Biden himself is out of touch with reality most days, so what else would we expect from him?

He’s under-shooting here. – Biden created a media kerfuffle for himself on Thursday at another event at which he was speaking to minority supporters. From a New York Times Report:

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. told a group of black supporters on Thursday night that most Americans were good people who think the nation can be improved, while also declaring that “there are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people.”

Mr. Biden offered his estimate during remarks in which he spoke about the importance of a president setting a positive example for the nation on racial issues. He accused President Trump of dividing the country while pledging that, as president, he would not.

“The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re going to get the worst of us to come out,” Mr. Biden said during the discussion, which was moderated by the actor Don Cheadle.

“Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that,” the former vice president said. “There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.”

[End]

Naturally, Biden’s critics jumped on the “10 to 15 percent” remark as if it is some sort of “basket of deplorables” moment, but that’s not going to fly. I doubt there is anyone in the United States who doesn’t believe that at least 15% of the population of this or any other country are “just not very good people.” If anything, Biden is underestimating here.

If you’re looking for ways to take Biden’s campaign out, look elsewhere because this cat don’t flush.

Hey, 2/3rds of them voted for the guy. – I found this incident to be highly ironic:

From the Breitbart piece:

The crowd booed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) during his appearance at Thursdays’s vigil for George Floyd, with some hurling expletives, demanding the Democrat politician to “get the f*ck out of here!”

While Rev. Kevin McCall urged the crowd to treat de Blasio with respect, the mayor did not receive an overwhelmingly warm welcome, as the audience inundated his appearance with boos and shouts of “get the fuck out of here,” “f*ck the mayor’s curfew,” and “shut the f*ck up.” Some reportedly turned their backs to the mayor:

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s speech at the memorial for George Floyd in Brooklyn was met with boos and jeers, despite requests from organizers for the crowd not to do so.

Embedded video

Let’s be honest here: New Yorkers get what they deserve in a mayor. In the 2013 election, they elected this giant Marxist boob over his Republican opponent by a margin of 73% to 24%. When he ran for re-election in 2017, after four years of abject failure and rampant nit-wittery, these same New York City voters gave him another four-year term by a margin of 67% to 28%.

According to NYC law, de Blasio is now term-limited out, but the reality is that if he could run for a third term, the very same people who tried to boo him off the stage on Thursday would overwhelmingly re-elect him again for the simple fact that he would have a “D” next to his name.

There is a word for the process of doing the same stupid thing over and over and over again and expecting a different result. That word is “insanity,” and it perfectly describes the voter of New York City and other major cities that have been controlled by Democrat machine politics for many decades.

That is all.

Whitmer Requests National Guard Through July; Grenell Gets in Some Parting Shots

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

The only appropriate response to this request is “Hell, no.” – Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer, the aspiring banana republic dictator who currently serves as Michigan’s brutish Governor, made a startling request of President Trump earlier today. In a letter e-mailed to the President, Herr Gretchen has the utter gall to request an extension under U.S. Title 32 to extend her use of the state’s National Guard at federal expense through … wait for it… JULY 31.

I kid you not:

Image

The power-mad Whitmer already has this authority in place through June 24, 12 days after her current lockdown order is set to expire. So, what does this tell you about her plans for further extending that order, despite the fact that there exists today not one shred of data or science to underpin it?

The truth is that there was never any real justification for Whitmer to have this Title 32 authority in the first place, and there is damn sure no reason whatsoever why she really needs it for another two months and three days.

It is long past time for President Trump to start asserting his authority to roll back the excesses of fascist Democrat Governors like Whitmer. A firm, swift and unambiguous denial of this brazen request would be a great way to start.

So long, Ric – please come back soon. – The Great One, Mark Levin, conducted a wide-ranging 19-minute interview with outgoing Acting DNI/Ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell on Wednesday. During the course of that interview, Grenell had some very revealing things to say about the way he was un-welcomed by the DC Swamp into the DNI job, and how the corrupt news media treated him throughout that assignment.

Here are some outtakes from the interview:

On how he was distrusted by members of congressional oversight committees and other deep state politicians, as well as the news media: “An outsider coming in with fresh eyes is like the enemy because you’re going to look at things differently.”

“Look what they did when I came in and was appointed. They immediately said this is an outsider who has no experience. And I heard that over and over, Mark, from most every news outlet. No experience, no experience. That’s not true. I have different experiences. I’ve been a consumer of intelligence since 2001, longer than a lot of the people who are in charge of overseeing intelligence from Congress. But that didn’t matter to them because I didn’t grow up in the system.”

On whether knowledge about Obamagate went all the way into the White House: “There is no possible way that it wasn’t known inside the White House and that multiple layers of people knew about this.”

On congressional manipulation of the Intelligence Community: “It was the political people and the politicians who were ignoring the problems and the career people were clamoring for reform. An overwhelming majority [of career officials] hate the leaks, they hate the manipulation coming from Congress, they hate how oversight is done through a letter, and then you don’t talk to anybody about it, and the briefings are ‘gotcha’ briefings. That’s not good.”

It’s a really good interview and well worth a listen.

From the day he was appointed to become the U.S. Ambassador to Germany, Mr. Grenell has been one of the most loyal and impactful members of the entire Trump Administration. As of yesterday, he is now officially out of government service, which is a terrible loss for the country in this time of great stress and peril.

President Trump should do everything in his power to convince him to serve in another high position because, as Abraham Lincoln famously said about Ulysses S. Grant:

“I need this man. He fights.”

Pew Research Center Report Shows Danger of Living in Democrat-Controlled Areas

The Evening Campaign Update

Living in a Democrat congressional district can be very hazardous to your health. That has to be the main takeaway from a report issued on Tuesday by the Pew Research Center.

The report, titled “Coronavirus death toll is heavily concentrated in Democratic congressional districts,” demonstrates that “Of the 44 hardest-hit congressional districts – the top 10% in terms of deaths – 41 are represented by Democrats, while three are represented by Republicans.” Pew’s researchers also found that “nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress.”

This is stunning data, but it should surprise no one. It is completely in line with the map below, compiled late last week by USAFACTS.org:

The data underlying this map illustrated that roughly 1/3rd of all U.S. Wuhan Virus deaths have taken place in each of the green, yellow and red areas. In other words, fully 2/3rds of all deaths have occurred in large cities and metro areas in the northeast and midwest. All of those areas are dominated by Democrat politicians. These are areas like New York City, Newark, Boston, Chicago and Detroit, where people are packed in more closely together and in which thousands continued to ride public transportation petri dishes to and from work throughout this viral outbreak, thanks to failed leadership by their governors and mayors.

Let’s also remember that it wasn’t Republican politicians who made the ghoulish decisions to send infected seniors back into their nursing homes where they infected thousands more. Those decisions were the exclusive province of Democrats like Andrew Cuomo and Phil Murphy and J.B. Pritzker and Gretchen Whitmer.

Desperate to find some solace in the stark reality of this Pew report, the leftist perpetual outrage crowd on Twitter tried and failed to make some hay out of this chart earlier today:

Obviously, when 80% of the deaths take place in your party’s districts in the first place, those districts are going to see a more rapid decline rate once the epidemic starts to fade. This isn’t exactly rocket science here, folks. The numbers are what they are, and to their credit, the liberals who run the Pew Center didn’t make much effort to cover for their fellow Democrats in this report.

Wednesday News Roundup: Cop Killing, Whitmer Dissembling, and ChinExit is Under Way

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

If this doesn’t make you sick, I don’t know what will. – A video made public yesterday shows four Minneapolis police killing a man on the street in broad daylight. Literally killing him. Watch:

Despite the man’s repeated pleas that he can’t breathe, this policeman leaned with his knee on his neck until he died. In broad daylight, while a crowd of pedestrians watched and shouted, so these officers had to know they were being caught on video. Yet, the officer leaned on the man until he died while his three fellow officers stood around like slugs and watched.

Maybe the guy resisted arrest; maybe he even got violent with the cops – we don’t know all the facts around the incident yet. But they don’t matter. This man was handcuffed, on the ground, pleading that he can’t breathe, and the police killed him.

His alleged crime? Forging a check. That’s right – the cops were called out to the scene to investigate a complaint of forging. This man is dead because he might have forged a check.

If the victim were white or Hispanic or Asian, you wouldn’t hear much more about this killing. Because he is black and our media establishment is utterly corrupt and thrives on fomenting racial strife in our country, this story will dominate the news for weeks as the Democrats attempt to blame this killing on President Trump.

The act by these bad cops is indefensible and they all need to be fully prosecuted for it. You can be sure that the coverage of this act by the corrupt news media will be indefensible as well, and there will be no price to be paid for that.

You won’t have to worry about Gretchen Whitmer being Biden’s running mate after this. – Michigan’s aspiring banana republic dictator famously ordered her state’s residents to stay locked down in their homes back in March, advising them not to even drive to their vacation homes in order to avoid spreading the Wuhan Virus. That advice had literally zero science or data to support it, but hey, she was having a great time lording her power over the little people.

That bit of bad advice became problematic for the Generalissimo over the weekend, however, when it was revealed that her very own hubby had driven many miles to their own vacation home, in the process attempting to use his status as Mr. Generalissimo to jump the long line at the boat storage facility to have his boat lowered into the water.

When asked about the incident at her press conference on Tuesday, Herr Gretchen responded that Mr. Generalissimo was just employing a “bad attempt at humor” in attempting to bully the boat facility, and had only traveled to the vacation home to “rake leaves.” No one, not even her own sign language expert, believed her:

Operation ChinExit is well under way. – It is already being overwhelmed by other, more sensationalist news stories, but White House Economic Advisor Lawrence Kudlow made a huge announcement Wednesday during an interview with Stuart Varney on Fox Business.

Kudlow told Varney that the U.S. would join Japan and Australia in subsidizing companies that work to move their supply chains out of China back to the United States:

The Trump administration is willing to pay for U.S. companies to uproot their supply chains and bring them home from China, according to the president’s top economic adviser.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused supply chain disruptions and elevated concerns the U.S. has become too reliant on production in Asia, and specifically China, for goods and key technologies.

“We welcome any Americans companies in Hong Kong or China mainland, we will do what we can for full expensing and pay the cost of moving if they return their supply chains and their production to the United States,” chief White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on Tuesday.

[End]

This is a very big deal, so don’t expect to see much about it on CNN or MSNBC.

Dining in in LA County? – It looks like that could suddenly happen as soon as this weekend, as the LA County Board of Supervisors approved a motion yesterday to ask the state to allow it to move to accelerate its glacially-slow reopening. Obviously, LA Democrats got some really bad polling numbers this week, because, as we know, Democrat officials base literally every action they take on polling data, not science or health-related data.

Interestingly, the request from LA County will include the reopening of churches in the area, just 5 days after President Trump warned governors and local officials that he would seek to override their authority if they did not move quickly to reopen religious facilities.

Funny how that works.

Saturday News Roundup: Trump Declares, Whitmer Extends, Pritzker Sued, DeSantis Frees

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

But what will he do to force the issue? – On Friday afternoon, President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those three glorious words) declared the nation’s churches, synagogues, temples, mosques and other houses of worship to be “essential” and demanded that the 50 state governors act to open them “right now, this weekend.”

The President’s demand was accompanied by a simultaneous release of CDC guidelines for the opening of places of worship, which formerly enjoyed the absolute protection of the First Amendment to the Constitution, but now apparently are only allowed to operate at the whims of governors, 24 of whom are Democrats who are hostile to individual freedoms generally. Somehow in all of the panicked decision-making committed in response to this Chinese plague, places of worship were given lower priority than liquor stores, pot shops and abortion clinics by federal health “experts.”

Hey, next time we have a pandemic, maybe the president at that time will think to have a constitutional “expert” on his response task force, too.

Now, you can be absolutely certain that not a single one of those 24 Democrat governors will voluntarily reopen their churches anytime in the near future, or make any special effort to comply with the President’s wishes. You can also be certain that many of the Republicans will also slow-play this CDC guidance. Given that it is not at all clear what power the President would have to hurry them along or usurp their authority in our federal system, Mr. Trump will apparently be left to rely on his Department of Justice to start suing governors who refuse to comply.

And we all know what a slow process…oh, wait…

Well, that was fast. – And just like clockwork, the DOJ filed a challenge to the religious freedom restrictions being enforced in Illinois by toadish Governor J.B. Pritzker. From a report at NPR:

The Trump administration is supporting a lawsuit challenging the Illinois governor’s stay-at-home order. The legal maneuver marks the first time the U.S. Department of Justice has weighed in on state level COVID-19 policies that are unrelated to religious matters.

The department on Friday filed a statement of interest in the case against Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker, saying the protective coronavirus measures in place exceed the limits of his office.

“In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Governor of Illinois has, over the past two months, sought to rely on authority under the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act to impose sweeping limitations on nearly all aspects of life for citizens of Illinois, significantly impairing in some instances their ability to maintain their economic livelihoods,” the department said in a statement.

The government is siding with Republican state Rep. Darren Bailey who filed the initial suit in state court earlier this month. He argued that Pritzker’s executive order violates a 30-day limit on the governor’s emergency powers put in place by the state legislature.

[End]

Cool. Now do Michigan.

Commentary: Why it matters when Gov. J.B. Pritzker wears a mask ...

Speaking of Michigan, Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer has done it again. – The aspiring banana republic dictator extended her science-devoid stay-at-home order on Friday through June 12, in the process creating an entirely new rationale for keeping her state on lockdown: “If we’re going to lower the chance of a second wave and continue to protect our neighbors and loved ones from the spread of this virus, we must continue to do our part by staying safer at home.”

Oh. So, now Democrats have a new narrative: The stay-at-home strategy wasn’t about “flattening the curve,” as they all assured us was the case back in March; now, it has morphed into preventing an imaginary “second wave” of the Wuhan Virus that no one knows will ever come. And even if we knew such a second wave was coming, there literally no scientific or data-driven basis for thinking that staying at home in June would protect anyone in October or December or whenever the Democrat talking point memo imagines the “second wave” is coming.

Herr Gretchen is no longer governing her state – she’s just campaigning to be Joe Biden’s running mate, and believes that keeping the boot on the necks of Michiganders helps her in that cause. This is a very, very dangerous woman, folks.

Gretchen Whitmer | Ricochet

In response to the Generalissimo’s dictatorial reign of power, hundreds of Michigan citizens gathered on the steps of the capitol building in Lansing on Friday to…cut hair. I kid you not. Led by 77 year-old barber Karl Manke, the group actually set up barber’s chairs and had Manke and other hair stylists clean people up right on the capitol steps:

Hilarious. These are Americans. This is what America looks like, Herr Gretchen.

Somebody needs to lock this guy in a closet and throw away the key. – After spending the last 3 months as the leading advocate for these interminable stay-at-home orders and frequently telling TV audiences that we may need to keep doing this for 12 to 18 months or whenever we have a miracle vaccine to shoot into everyone’s veins, Dr. Anthony Fauci actually had this to say on Friday:

You seriously could never make this stuff up. Never in a million, trillion years.

This is what leadership looks like. – While Dr. Fauci and the Democrat governors were focused on their mission to destroy the country on Friday, the best and most effective Governor in the land did this:

Can anyone doubt that Gov. DeSantis will also be among the first to lift all restrictions on church attendance?

Ron DeSantis is the Anti-Whitmer.

DeSantis banks on Trump in his corner for Florida governor's race ...

Let freedom ring.

Have a great Saturday, if you can.

Larry Schweikart: Democrats Push the Panic-Porn Button

Guest Contribution by America’s History Teacher, Larry Schweikart

As the Democrat governors lose the narrative of the China Virus—and also lose control of their states, they have ratcheted up the panic-porn to new levels. Hoax News reporters harangue President Donald Trump about not wearing a mask, then about taking hydroxychloroquine, then about whether he would shut down the country if the China Virus numbers suddenly rise again.

His answers? “No, I won’t wear a mask,” “I’ve been taking hydroxycholoroquine for two weeks,” and “No, I won’t shut the country down again.”

Bravo.

It’s clear none of this has anything whatsoever to do with a flu and everything to do with damaging the U.S. economy enough to keep Trump from getting massively reelected. After all, they did it once before . . . sort of. In early October, 2016, as Joel Pollak and I revealed in our book How Trump Won, the Trump team was circulating internal polls that were shockingly good for The Donald. How good? They had him within the margin of error in Illinois, Rhode Island, and Oregon. They had him even in Minnesota (which, as it turned out, was the case).

I am convinced that Hillary Clinton’s team was reading the same tea leaves, and had to do anything to stop the momentum. I believe that is why they rolled out the “Access Hollywood” tape so early. It did have a damaging, but quite temporary, effect on the Trump team. But by election day, the impact had faded, and while Trump did not carry Oregon, or Rhode Island, or Illinois, he did shock the pundits by winning perennial teaser states for the GOP like Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, and came reasonably close to winning Virginia and within a hair of winning New Hampshire. This suggests that early internal polling had some merit.

The point is, “Access Hollywood” was a last-minute, desperate brake on Trump’s momentum. While the Democrats didn’t introduce the China Virus to the U.S.—China did—they reveled in an opportunity to again put a brake on Trumpmentum. One can look at polls from the same Hoax Pollsters who gave us a Hillary landslide in 2016, or who missed Wisconsin by an average of six points, or who missed the Ron DeSantis/Rick Scott/Josh Hawley/Mike Braun elections in 2018. Those same Hoax Pollsters say that Joe (I’m hidin’) Biden, who hasn’t appeared in public at a live event in nearly two months, is somehow leading President Trump.

If you buy that, then you likely have the Las Vegas Raiders winning the Super Bowl this year, too.
What the draconian lockdowns by the blue-state governors, particularly Gretchen Whitmer in Michigan, J. B. Pritzker in Illinois, Gavin Newsom in California, and Andrew Cuomo in New York have done is to finally . . . finally . . . chip away at the remaining Democrat base. Already—and the Democrats, deep in their evil hovels of voter analysis know this—Trump has been eroding the black vote and has been actually building quite a bit of Hispanic support. Most polls put Trump’s black approval at between 16% and 22%.

Blacks, and even black conservatives, are quick to insist that Trump won’t get that much of the actual black vote, and they are right. He doesn’t need to. He’ll get between 12-13% actual vote, but add to that another 3-5% of black voters who will stay home. That is a death sentence for the Democrats. That alone would put Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida, and North Carolina in Trump’s column. But when you add that to his up to 47% (in some polls) Hispanic support, and combine that with the outrage in the suburban areas of Virginia, Minnesota, Colorado, and other states enduring a lockdown, Trump’s electoral college numbers are poised to soar.

These last two weeks we had two good tests of the public mood on the lockdowns. A Republican held the WI7 seat largely on the basis of winning mail-in ballots, and not just absentees! In California, Mike Garcia flipped the seat previously held by Katie (The Fuller Brush Girl) Hill, who had resigned. Garcia won by nine, and most surprising of all, continued to break even in the days after the election when Democrat “vote harvesting” often produces surprises. Then, in Staughton, Virginia, Republicans flipped three out of three city assembly seats in a district that went for Barack Obama twice. The issues? Guns and the lockdown.

When you add to this the fact that Governor Cuomo literally sentenced old people to death by sending China-Virus-infected old people back to nursing homes, I think you’ll start to see a serious boil here by election time. The last hope was to somehow perpetuate the panic through the virtue-signaling wearing of masks (of dubious effectiveness, as admitted even by St. Fauci). It ain’t happenin’. The red states that opened, such as Georgia and Florida, have lower rates of the China Virus now. Remarkable what sunlight and herd immunity will do to the flu.

As for Trump? He will be the beneficiary of not only creating one, but two great economies by election time, while simultaneously overcoming the China Virus. The Democrats couldn’t help themselves. They pushed the Panic Porn Button too soon.

Friday News Roundup: Win for Flynn, Loss for Gretchen, CORONAPANIC Lunacy and More

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – The DC Circuit Court of Appeals, in an extremely rare action, ordered corrupt Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan to personally respond to the Court to explain his refusal to grant the DOJ’s motion to dismiss the case against General Mike Flynn, which was filed on May 7:

As appellate lawyer John M. Reeves (reeveslawstl) explained in a great thread on Twitter, writs of mandamus like the one Sidney Powell filed on Tuesday are most often rejected outright by a court of appeals. But, when not rejected outright, district judges are generally allowed to respond through  an amicus curae, an outside attorney appointed by the circuit court who would file a response on his behalf. In fact, that is exactly what the appellate court did in the U.S. v. Fokker case cited in this order.

The 3-judge appellate court panel could have also merely “requested” Judge Sullivan to respond; instead, it requires him to file his response within 10 days. This is an extraordinary demand by an appellate court of a district judge who has been on the bench for more than a quarter of a century and who, prior to his gross mismanagement of the Flynn case, had established a firm reputation for adhering to the law.

The 3-judge panel consists of Judge Karen Henderson, a George HW Bush appointee; Judge Robert Wilkins, an Obama appointee; and Judge Neomi Rao, an appointee of Donald Trump. We can be confident that Judge Rao will do the right thing, and that Judge Wilkins will parrot whatever opinion is written for him by a bunch of Lawfare lawyers. Thus, the entire matter will hinge on the judgment of Judge Henderson, who, if the order issued yesterday is any indication, is already highly concerned about Sullivan’s conduct.

And speaking of WINNING… – Staunton, Virginia, is a town that has trended Democrat for more than a decade, one that voted for Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self twice, and went for the Fainting Felon over Donald Trump in the 2016 election. GOP voter turnout has been depressed in recent election cycles, as Republicans have become discouraged, assuming the handwriting was on the wall.

But this week, everything changed. Three city council seats, all held by Democrats for years, were up, and the Republicans, in what one reporter called an outcome that was “stunning beyond words,” took all three seats from Democrats, riding a wave of record turnout. Thus, as the corrupt news media continues to crank out its fake polls – Fox just released another laugher yesterday – pretending to show Biden and the Democrats with substantial leads, the results of elections on the ground keep painting a very different picture.

And even more WINNING! – As we reported yesterday evening, Texas Congressman John Ratcliffe was confirmed by the full Senate yesterday on a party-line, 49-44 vote, to become the full-time Director of National Intelligence.

The courageous Grenell will now resume his job as full-time U.S. Ambassador to Germany. Every American should wish him Godspeed and be thankful for his outstanding work as Acting DNI. He has truly made a difference for the nation.

And hey, President Trump: If you want to make every leftist head in America explode simultaneously, how about firing Christopher Wray and making Mr. Grenell the Acting Director of the utterly corrupt Federal Bureau of Investigation? Wouldn’t that be fun?

Yeah, it really would.

Will this WINNING never end? – Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer, the aspiring banana republic dictator currently serving as Governor of Michigan, suffered another setback on Thursday when a county judge who, unlike her, has actually read the U.S. Constitution rejected her efforts to deny 77 year-old barber Karl Manke his right to cut hair.

From U.S. News and World Report:

The state health department failed to show that Karl Manke’s shop was a specific threat to public health, Shiawassee County Judge Matthew Stewart said.

Manke reopened his shop in Owosso on May 4, drawing customers from across the state who were inspired by his plea for freedom from a government shutdown. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said barber shops and hair salons are risky places because of the contagious virus.

Manke, 77, has received at least two tickets for violating Whitmer’s orders, and his barber license was suspended last week. Nonetheless, he said he’s still cutting hair — “Oh, heavens yes” — including the hair of a squirming 2-year-old Thursday.

“Listen, I’ve been in this business for 59 years. She wants to come cut my hands off, that’s another story,” Manke said in an interview, referring to the governor.

America needs more 77 year-old men like Karl Manke, and more judges like Matthew Stewart.

Gov Whitmer: “Dictator of the Week” Award

Biden team vetting more potential VP candidates. – Don’t look now, but Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden’s handlers, after starting the vetting process with Generalissimo Gretchen and Stacey Abrams, are also moving to vet more serious people, starting with Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.

Say what you will about Sen. Klobuchar, but she, unlike the Generalissimo, is actually someone who has qualifications to be president, which is something any Biden running mate would end up becoming within a few weeks after Inauguration Day due to Biden’s obvious, advancing mental decline.

The Biden handlers also leaked on Thursday the fact that they are also vetting Florida Congresswoman Val Demings. Unlike the loooooser, unaccomplished Ms. Abrams, Cong. Demings is an accomplished, serious person with 35 years in law enforcement. She rose from being a patrol officer to ultimately serve as Orlando’s Chief of Police for 10 years prior to being elected to congress in 2016. Yes, she’s a leftist, but at least she is someone who has had experience leading in a crisis.

While a Biden presidency would be an unmitigated disaster for the country in any event, it is somewhat reassuring that his handlers are at least beginning to consider some fairly serious people as his running mate. Don’t get me wrong: They’re all terrible people. But a Whitmer/Abrams level of terrible is a little more dangerous to everyone than Klobuchar/Demings level of terrible would be.

The push for Joe Biden to choose a black woman as his vice ...

CORNAPANIC LUNACY, Part I – The things we are doing in response to the virus are simply insane, as illustrated by this photo of a beach in La Grande Mont, France:

CORNAPANIC LUNACY, Part II – Horse racing is about to restart in Texas, but few will be there to see it. At Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie – which is in Democrat-controlled Dallas County – the bar and sports book, both entirely indoor facilities, will be allowed to admit fans and bettors up to 25% of capacity.

But the grandstand, which is outdoors in the warm sunlight and fresh air, will be kept empty. This despite several recent studies that indicate that warmth and sunlight help to kill the Wuhan Virus.

You just could never in a million years make this stuff up, folks.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: DeSantis, Whitmer, Northam, Morning Mika and More

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has unarguably led one of the most successful responses to the Wuhan Virus pandemic in his state, it well and truly fed up with the idiotic coverage coming from Florida’s corrupt news media.

Check out this clip from his Wednesday press availability with Vice President Mike Pence:

Transcript:

“Our data is available; our data is transparent. In fact, Dr. Birx has talked multiple times about how Florida has the absolute best data. So, any insinuation otherwise is just typical partisan narrative trying to be spun. Part of the reason is that, because you’ve got a lot of people in your profession who waxed poetically for weeks and weeks about how Florida was gonna be just like New York.  ‘Wait two weeks, Florida’s gonna be next! Just like Italy in two weeks!’

“Well, hell, we’re 8 weeks away from that and it hasn’t happened. Not only do we have a lower death rate – well, we have way lower deaths generally – we have a lower death rate than the Acela Corridor; D.C., everyone up there. We have a lower death rate than the Midwest: Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio. But even in our region – Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia – Florida has the lower death rate. And, I [Florida] was the number one landing spot from tens of thousands of people leaving the number one hot zone in the world [New York City] to come to my state.

“So, we succeeded, and I think that people just don’t want to recognize it because it challenges their narrative; it challenges their assumption; so they gotta try to find a boogeyman. Maybe it’s that there are black helicopters circling the Department of Health. If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you.”

[End]

Perfect.

Life is tough for Church Lady Joe Scarborough when Morning Mika is all verklempt. – Morning Mika was so verklempt over President Donald Trump’s tweets yesterday that she actually promised to put in a call to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to beg him to ban the President from the platform.

I’m not kidding:

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski says she will speak with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to discuss getting President Trump banned from Twitter.

The “Morning Joe” co-host argued that the social media giant’s platform policies are being “abused by the day.”

“Need to know why Trump is not banned?” Brzezinski asked in the first of a series of tweets.

“I will be reaching out to head of twitter about their policies being violated every day by President Trump,” Brzezinski wrote in a subsequent tweet. “Hope my call is taken. Please retweet if you agree.”

[End]

Remember, Morning Mika’s father – Zbigniew Brzezinski – basically invented globalism during the Carter Administration, where he served as National Security Advisor. So, Morning Mika has been all verklempt since mid-2015, when Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the presidency. Now you know why Church Lady Joe is such a miserable human being.

Herr Gretchen is the perfect authoritarian thug. – Michigan’s Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer just can’t get out of her own way. Over the past two months, she has repeatedly warned Michiganders against traveling to visit their lake homes and other vacation homes – indeed, she has attempted to even ban them from walking across the street to chat with a neighbor.

But being the authoritarian thug that she is, Herr Gretchen naturally assumes the traditional ‘do as I say, not as I do’ posture. Yesterday, as noted by Jim Hoft at GatewayPundit, one enterprising citizen caught her visiting her own vacation home even as she continues to advise the little people to stay at home:

CONFIRMED: Governor Whitmer Begs Michiganders Not to Travel to their Summer Home — Then Her Cars Are Seen Parked Outside of HER SUMMER HOME!

No wonder Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden is considering her to be his running mate. She’s the perfect Democrat authoritarian thug.

Give us yore attenshun, please, citizens! Tha raght honorabul Guvnah Ralph Nahthum of tha Commonwealth a’ Vahginyah has anothah eeeeedict ta make! – As states all over the nation now move into the 2nd and 3rd phases of highly successful reopening programs, Virginia Governor Ralph KKK Coonman Northam told reporters on Wednesday that he has “no particular timeline” in his tiny mind on a plan to start reopening his own state.

From a piece in the Daily Caller:

The Virginia governor delayed reopening parts of Northern Virginia last week after leaders in the area sent him a letter expressing concerns that their communities should not yet reopen. Northam said he is “following the data” as he prohibits Northern Virginia from reopening, according to the Washington Times.

“We haven’t set any particular timeline,” Northam said, the Times reported Wednesday. “We will continue to follow that daily. We will be in communication with those (local) leaders, and when they are comfortable, and when the data supports a movement into Phase 1, we will do so,” Northam said.
[End]

As we detailed last night, new data clearly demonstrates that there is no science-based or data-driven case to be made for continued lockdowns in states and big cities where Democrat politicians are still keeping them in place. That is being done for purely partisan political reasons alone.

How do you know Ralph Northam is lying? His lips are moving.

That is all.
