Tuesday News Roundup: Tucker Carlson Exposes Soros as Seattle’s Mayor Hires a Pimp

Here’s how depraved Democrats are in their pursuit of political power. – The House’s new draft of a short-term budget deal through December 11 defunds school lunches for children and aid to American farmers, so that their candidates can then go into rural areas where both are needed and blame Donald Trump.

From a story at BreakingDefense.com:

The document, released Monday by the House Appropriations Committee, could go up for a vote before the entire House later this week before being sent to the Senate.

In a sign of the fights to come with only nine days until the federal government shuts down, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell immediately rejected the proposed House bill, writing on Twitter: “House Democrats’ rough draft of a government funding bill shamefully leaves out key relief and support that American farmers need. This is no time to add insult to injury and defund help for farmers and rural America.”

[End]

Every time you think the Democrat Party could not possibly become any more despicable than it already is, they go and prove you wrong again.

Fox News can’t mute Tucker Carlson. – Fox is moving increasingly left during its daytime programming, but the ratings power of its evening host lineup is keeping that four-hour block steadfastly conservative.

Late last week, we saw the spectacle of former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich being shut down by Harris Faulkner, Melissa Francis and Marie Harf when he raised the unarguable fact that George Soros has spent hundreds of millions of dollars over the last decade supporting radical anarchists in district attorney elections all over the country. This summer, we saw the results of that Soros effort with hundreds of domestic terrorists being released immediately without charges filed against them after they had been arrested for rioting in cities like Portland, Seattle, Minnesota, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, St. Louis, Chicago and New York.

Tucker Carlson, host of Fox’s 8-9 p.m. ET hour, took it upon himself to respond to Fox’s censorship of Gingrich by airing a full-segment report on Soros’s evil activity last night, and it is outstanding. Here’s the clip of it:

So long as his ratings remain strong, Carlson apparently still overrules Paul Ryan in the Fox News power structure.

Philly fans boo everything, even when they aren’t there. – During their loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz was booed twice as he came off the field after throwing interceptions:

That’s nothing unusual, of course. What is odd about this situation, though, is that there were no fans in attendance in Philly on Sunday. Wentz was in fact booed by the fake fan noise being pumped into the stadium by employees of his own team. I’m not sure you’ll see that adherence to authenticity in any other BLMFL stadium this season.

While Joe Biden flubbed the lines to the Pledge of Allegiance while reading yet another TelePrompter speech to yet another imaginary audience, President Donald Trump put in a full day’s work at the White House – including a meeting with potential nominee Amy Coney Barrett – then flew out to Toledo, Ohio for another of his massive airport rallies.

Here are some scenes from that:

But the fake pollsters expect you to believe that the guy who doesn’t even know how to put on his mask with the blue part facing outwards is leading the incumbent who draws these crowds everywhere he goes.

Don Lemon says the part he isn’t supposed to say out loud. – CNN is now officially aligned with the domestic terrorist groups and their goals of destroying America.  Watch as pretend journalist Don Lemon formally adopts the Antifa/BLM goal of “[blowing] up the entire system”:

Dear Don: When what you’re saying is too extreme for even Fredo to endorse, you’ve probably said too much.

The Big Apple continues to rot from its core. – In a bit of real news that was of course ignored by our corrupt, mainstream news media, the Daily Caller reports that 87% of New York City restaurants were unable to make their August rent payments due to the depressing effects of ongoing lockdown orders by the city’s buffoon Mayor, and thanks to the fact that House Democrats killed a Republican stimulus bill that would have provided rent support before they left for their August vacation.

From that Daily Caller story:

A survey found that 87% of New York City restaurants, bars, and nightlife venues couldn’t pay their full rent in August as the city grapples with permanent business closures and unemployment.

The survey by the NYC Hospitality Alliance also showed that 34% of these establishments couldn’t pay rent at all, Patch reported.

The results, which were released Monday, come ahead of the scheduled reopening of indoor dining at 25% capacity starting Sept. 30. If positive rates for coronavirus don’t show significant increase, the capacity will be raised to 50% by Nov. 1, according to Eater.

But many restaurants are struggling to remain afloat in the meantime, and outdoor dining seemingly failed to help many businesses survive the warmer months of the pandemic.

“Restaurants, bars and nightlife venues have been financially devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic,” Andrew Rigie, the group’s executive director, said in a statement according to the NY Post.

“Even before the pandemic when operating at 100 percent occupancy, these small businesses were struggling to stay open. Now we’re seeing widespread closures, approximately 150,000 industry workers are still out of their jobs, and the overwhelming majority of these remaining small businesses cannot afford to pay rent.”

[End]

Thanks, Bill de Blasio and Nancy Pelosi!

Meanwhile, in Riot City, USA… – The domestic terrorists in BLM and Antifa took their rioting to another residential neighborhood overnight as local police stood around and watched:

In Seattle, communist Democrat Mayor Jenny Durkan has hired a pimp to be her “Street Czar”, because of course she has:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. Come back and see me – I’m here all week.

Wednesday News Roundup: China Scientist Drops a Bombshell and DOJ Convenes a Bolton Grand Jury

Let’s all remember that Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates and Barack Obama directed hundreds of millions to this lab and its “research”. – Last night, Tucker Carlson interviewed a Chinese virologist named Dr. Li-Meng Yan. Ms. Yan worked at the WHO reference lab in Hong Kong, one of the top research labs on earth, during the time the China Virus was released from the virology research lab outside of Wuhan.

She told Carlson that the China Virus was created in that lab and the release of the Virus was committed intentionally by the Chinese communist government.

From a story at Fox News:

Carlson specifically asked Dr. Li-Meng Yan whether she believed the Chinese communist party released the virus “on purpose.” “Yes, of course, it’s intentionally,” she responded on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a World Health Organization reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation.

“I work[ed] in the WHO reference lab which is the top coronavirus lab in the world, in the University of Hong Kong. And the thing is I get deeply into such investigation in secret from the early beginning of this outbreak. I had my intelligence because I also get my own unit network in China, involved [in] the hospital … also I work with the top corona[virus] virologist in the world,” she said.

“So, together with my experience, I can tell you, this is created in the lab … and also, it is spread to the world to make such damage.”

Yan’s comments conflicted with the opinion of Dr. Anthony Fauci, a White House coronavirus adviser, who previously cast doubt on the idea the virus was artificially created. In May, he told National Geographic: “If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, and what’s out there now is very, very strongly leaning toward this [virus] could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated—the way the mutations have naturally evolved.”

In response, her former employer, the University of Hong Kong, criticized her account. A press release noted “that the content of the said news report does not accord with the key facts as we understand them.”

“Specifically, Dr Yan never conducted any research on human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus at [the University of Hong Kong] during December 2019 and January 2020, her central assertion of the said interview.”

Yan, who said she was one of the first scientists in the world to study the novel coronavirus, fled China and currently fears retaliation. She was allegedly asked by her supervisor at the University/WHO reference lab, Dr. Leo Poon, in 2019 to look into the odd cluster of SARS-like cases coming out of mainland China at the end of December 2019.

[End]

So, who are we to believe, a scientist who is placing her life in clear danger by making these allegations, or a lifelong bureaucrat who steered millions of dollars to the lab from which the virus was clearly released?

Doesn’t seem like a real tough question.

This also happened on Tuesday:

From a story at the Washington Examiner:

The Justice Department opened a criminal inquiry into whether former White House national security adviser John Bolton unlawfully disclosed classified information in his latest book.

A grand jury convened and issued subpoenas for communication records from Simon & Schuster, the company that published The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir, as well as from Javelin, Bolton’s literary agency, according to multiple reports on Tuesday.

“We are aware of reports that grand jury subpoenas have been issued seeking information concerning the publication of Ambassador Bolton‘s recent book,” Bolton’s lawyer, Charles Cooper, told the Washington Examiner. “Ambassador Bolton emphatically rejects any claim that he acted improperly, let alone criminally, in connection with the publication of his book, and he will cooperate fully, as he has throughout, with any official inquiry into his conduct.”

[End]

Oh, my, oh, my, oh, my, my, my. Whether he ends up being prosecuted and convicted or not, the decision to publish this book is going to end up costing Mr. Bolton far more money in legal fees than whatever money he may make from it. Couldn’t happen to a nicer warmonger.

No critical race theory training at CDC after all. – After President Trump ordered a halt to all training sessions on the evil “critical race theory” within federal agencies, some Obama holdover at the CDC decided they would move ahead with that agency’s sessions anyway:

Yesterday, the Director of the OMB, Russ Vought, announced that that bit of subversion had been halted:

There is still justice in the world.

A beautiful day for a peace deal. – As I covered elsewhere this morning, the Democrat/media Axis of Propaganda was beside itself with rage on Tuesday as President Trump was having the temerity to bring actual peace between three nations in the Middle East.

Katie Pavlich posted these photos, which captured the beautiful setting at the White House:

Blessed are the peacemakers. Thank you, President Trump.

Today’s Democrat Party-sponsored Riot Update – Portland, aka Riot City USA, had a fourth straight day of no rioting following the DNC stand down order issued last Friday due to bad polls. But real journalist Andy Ngo reports that the Democrat-paid organizers are getting ready to mount a new offensive soon:

As I pointed out yesterday, the past few days of relative calm are just a lull in the action. Expect the death and destruction to mount back up soon.

There was some action in Philadelphia, where Democrat-sponsored BLM terrorists held what CNN and MSNBC would claim was a “largely peaceful” rally that included these scenes:

Ask yourselves this: Why do Democrat mayors force their police officers to put up with this kind of crap? That woman is a feral animal who should have been arrested, taken to jail, and booked for assaulting a police officer. She needs to be in custody for her own safety and for the safety of those around her.

That is all.

Queen Nancy Personifies the Democrat Party’s Contempt for Ordinary Americans

So, why do we care where Queen Nancy gets her hair done? – The answer to that is simple, isn’t it? It’s because she has been one of the loudest Democrat voices over the last six months lecturing the little people of America to stay locked up in their homes and only venture out when wearing a mask. She’s been one of the most ardent fans of the lockdowns mandated by despicable Democrat governors like her step-nephew Gavin Newsom, putting millions of little people out of work and shuttering hundreds of thousands of businesses.

Even worse than her act of intentionally violating nephew Gavin’s lockdown/mask orders on Sunday by intimidating a single mother salon owner to open her shuttered business just for her decripit, stringy mane was Queen Nancy’s response to getting caught. She couldn’t lower herself to do the simple thing: To admit her wrongdoing and ask to be forgiven. Instead, she haughtily claimed at a press conference to having been “set up” and demanded that the salon owner she had intimidated apologize to her.

Nancy Pelosi says her visit to a hair salon was a 'setup' - Los Angeles Times

This would seem a small matter were it not so perfectly emblematic of the dismissive stance taken towards ordinary Americans not just by Queen Nancy and her despicable fellow Democrats, but many Republicans who fester in the DC Swamp as well.

It is a sad fact of America’s current state of being that, aside from President Donald Trump, several members of his cabinet and senior advisory staff and a handful of members of congress, almost the entirety of the District of Columbia has become hostile territory. About 95% of the national news media is supportive of that contempt for the American people. Even worse, the Democrat Party funds two different domestic terrorist groups – Antifa and BLM – whose operatives travel the country burning and looting vast swaths of Democrat-controlled cities at will, knowing the Democrat mayors will not allow the police to properly deal with them.

Here’s a prime example of these terrorists acting with impunity in Washington, DC just a few hours before this was written:

The police can’t act because the Mayor won’t allow it. The Mayor isn’t home, so she couldn’t care less about the disturbance and threat these thugs are creating for her neighbors. You think you’re safe in your home because your town has ordinances that designate this to be criminal behavior? Better check to see which political party your mayor is affiliated with, because you might be surprised to discover exactly how unsafe you really are.

The Democrat Party also has an online army, the social media outrage mob that attacks, doxxes and cancels anyone the Democrats point their gnarly fingers towards. The single mother salon owner, Erica Kious, made an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show last night. She told Carlson that Nephew Gavin’s lockdown order has caused her to lose 60% of her clients and most of her stylists and that her business is dead.

Even worse, she told Carlson that she will have to leave San Francisco after being attacked by the Democrat outrage mob on social media with the most vile and disgusting kinds of death threats imaginable.

It’s a disgrace. This is behavior that no civilized society should allow, but that’s the whole point: The Democrat Party is working hard to ensure that America loses its status as a civilized society.

See, it would be impossible to “transform” a free nation of 330 million people who exist as a cohesive unit, a people who share common values, a common outlook and common goals. It is far, far easier to foment a Marxist-style revolution within a population that is completely divided among itself, shares no common values or goals and is already assaulting one another online and actively attacking one another in the streets.

Every goal the Democrat Party has pursued over the past half-century has been designed to divide the American population along class, race and religious lines. They’ve used education policy for this, they’ve used tax policy for this, they’ve used civil rights policy for this, they’ve used housing policies and healthcare policies, immigration polices and foreign policy for this. Hell, they’ve even used energy and environmental policy to advance their divisive goals.

Democrats like Nancy Pelosi now believe that they are on the cusp of consolidating that half century of hard work in this year’s election. Her contempt for and hostility towards Erica Kious is just the manifestation of the way she feels towards all of us.

In their path stands a single obstacle: Donald J. Trump. He’s it. He is all the rest of America has.

You give this woman a majority in the House and Joe Biden/Kamala Harris in the White House, you will not enjoy the result.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Turncoat Kasich, Flynn Case Filing, and a Bogus Suit Hits Hannity and Carlson

You expected something else? – “News” broke on Monday that fake Republican John Kasich will “speak on behalf of” Joe Biden at the DCN phone call, er, “convention” when it virtually takes place in August. Note the specific wording, “speak on behalf of”. What, Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe can’t speak for himself now? Or is that just yet another example of bad writing in the media?

It’s a valid question because you have to wonder whether Biden will by then even be capable of delivering his own acceptance speech from the safe confines of his basement. With everything else they are doing right now with the help of their corrupt media toadies, no one should doubt that the Democrats would try to hold a convention during which the nominee never opens his mouth.

Think about it: San Fran Nan has been illegally allowing members of her House caucus to “vote by proxy” for months now, and no one in the corrupt media can be bothered to inform their readers or viewers of that fact. If Democrats can get away with that, why wouldn’t they believe they could get away with holding a convention in which Kasich gives Biden’s acceptance speech by proxy?

In any event, Republicans should celebrate the fact that Democrats will now be subjected to an hour of the most tiresome man in politics droning on about “Hey, didja know my Dad was a mailman?” Maybe they can get Bill Kristol and Paul Ryan to join him. Awesome.

Speaking of Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden… – Here he is wishing that our public schools taught more about radical Islam:

This is a guy, mind you, who can’t make himself utter the words “under God” in a campaign speech, but he’s all in on teaching Islam to your children. That’s who the Democrat Party wants to be your next president.

Problem, meet new narrative solution. – So, you’re the leaders of the Democrat Party, and you see Tucker Carlson’s ratings going through the roof as he tells the truth about what is really happening in our society night after night. You see Sean Hannity coming in a strong second in the cable ratings by pounding on Obamagate night after night. You see Ed Henry reviving the ratings fortunes of Fox’s mid-morning program while reporting scoops about Obamagate. You see Fox News in general destroying MSNBC and CNN in viewing audience and even among the 25-49 target demographic week after week after week.

What do you do? How about finding a disgruntled ex-Fox employee and a dissatisfied sporadic contributor who are willing to file a scattershot sexual misconduct lawsuit against all of the them?

From a story at Politico:

Two women accused male Fox News hosts of sexual harassment and, in one woman’s case, rape, in a lawsuit filed on Monday in federal court in New York.

Ed Henry, who was fired as a host earlier this month, was accused of sexual harassment and rape in the suit, while hosts Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Howard Kurtz were alleged to have separately behaved in a sexually inappropriate way. Jennifer Eckhart, a former producer, accused Henry of rape and threatening retaliation for refusing his advances. Cathy Areu, a reporter often invited on the network, accused Henry, Hannity, Carlson and Kurtz of sexual harassment and gender discrimination.

[End]

This is just too convenient for words, folks. Obviously, all of the accused Fox personalities have denied the accusations – they would do that even if they were guilty. For his part, Henry admits to having a consensual relationship with Eckhart, and the two exchanged some decidedly creepy messages. There is a reason why Fox dismissed him when the allegations became public.

The test will be to watch and see where this lawsuit goes, how it ends up being disposed.

My bet is the claims against Carlson and Hannity will quietly disappear in a few weeks after it become obvious Fox is not going to kneejerk to firing them as it did with Henry.

Kurt Schlichter had this reaction to the news of the suit:

That pretty well sums up my feelings about it, too. We’ll see.

Flynn Persecution Update: The U.S. Solicitor General’s office filed a petition yesterday urging the DC Circuit Court of Appeals to deny corrupt Judge Emmet Sullivan’s request for an en banc rehearing of General Mike Flynn’s application for a writ of mandamus.

Here’s how real journalist Catherine Herridge reported it on her Twitter feed:

Note this closing comment: “As far as the government is aware, only one district judge has ever before filed a petition for rehearing en banc in a mandamus case + that petition was denied.” That is how extraordinary and completely inappropriate this effort by Sullivan to keep Flynn’s case alive – and thus keep Flynn quiet – until after the election truly is.

Make no mistake about this: When the Circuit Court rules against Sullivan in a few weeks, there is no question whatsoever that the corrupt judge and his Lawfare lawyers will immediately request a hearing before the U.S. Supreme Court. Here’s the thing about that: the Supremes will not reconvene until the first Monday in October.

With Sidney Powell having filed her own response to Sullivan’s request, the case is now fully in the hands of the Circuit Court. But, given the realities of the calendar at this point, Sullivan and his deep state sponsors have basically already achieved their true goal.

That is all.

Thursday News Roundup: Joe Biden Needs More Fiber, the Times Beclowns Itself Again, and the Trouble With Polls

Pray for these debates to happen. – Think about it: If a debate breaks out this fall between Donald Trump, Kanye West and Joe Biden, we are all going to think we must have accidentally ingested a massive amount of peyote. It would be such a wild trip that we absolutely must find a way to make it happen.

Kanye West no longer supports President Trump, says Joe Biden not ...

This cracked me up, but only because it could be based in reality:

James Woods is a national treasure.

Your corrupt news media in action. – The New York Times weighed into the ongoing tit-for-tat exchange between Fox’s Tucker Carlson and depraved Democrat/Marxist Senator Tammy Duckworth. Because Duckworth cannot be defended based on facts and logic, the Times very predictably based its defense of her by proclaiming that, because Duckworth was born in Thailand and lost her legs serving her country in Iraq, she is above any form of criticism.

From a piece at The Federalist:

The New York Times charged Fox News’ Tucker Carlson of espousing nativism Wednesday after the prime time television host criticized Illinois Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth, who said Americans ought to consider cancelling George Washington and called American heroes honored in Trump’s Friday speech at Mount Rushmore “dead traitors.”

“Tammy Duckworth Confronts Nativist Smears From Tucker Carlson,” blared the Times headline. “Senator Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, a Thai-American Democrat who lost both of her legs fighting the Iraq war and is now a potential vice-presidential nominee, was targeted with nativist smears for the second night in a row on Tuesday by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.”

Carlson however, did no such thing. His rant had nothing to do with where she was born which was in Thailand, and nothing to do with her citizenship, which was granted by having an American father. See for Yourself:

https://twitter.com/i/status/1280855419813015552

[End]

As you can see, what Carlson actually did was take Duckworth to task for saying it’s time for Americans to “cancel” George Washington, without whose amazing courage America literally would not exist, and for characterizing him and many others, like Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, Ulysses Grant, Andrew Jackson, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King and many other real American heroes as “dead traitors.”

Tammy Duckworth hates America, which of course just makes her a typical Democrat member of congress these days. But of course, her status as a Democrat is why the Times is obligated to defend her by any means available, even when the only means available happen to be intellectual dishonesty and abject stupidity. Because that’s what our corrupt news media does.

Hey, didja ever wonder what Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden believes with every fiber of his being? – Well, yesterday, the Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee tried to explain it, and sadness and unintentional hilarity ensued:

Verbatim Transcript:

Biden: Lonnie knows I believe this every fiber my being. We’re posed. I, what I proposed is, is………..it can be done. I hink we’re in a position ta, ta really make it happen. And my team and your team…already working closely together, and light, to light up the path forward here. Critical laws like the pro act to strengthen collective bargaining. On politics like the prevailing and pr……look, I guess…I’m gettin’, I’m, I’m gettin’, f, takin’ too much time. You know…

[End]

So, there you have it, folks – Joe Biden’s core beliefs, beliefs that he feels with every fiber of his being. Or maybe he meant he just didn’t get enough fiber in his Metamucil – it’s all so confusing. Who really knows?

So, you needed one more reason not to watch CNBC? – Well, here you go:

Can’t wait to see the ratings for that time block.

The trouble with polls, part 6,572. – A new national poll released yesterday by The Hill/HarrisX has Democrats concerned. Why? Because HarrisX is an actual legitimate polling organization that has little-to-no incentive to fake up its results.

This poll of 933 registered voters was taken on July 3-4, and it finds Biden leading President Trump by a margin of 43 to 39. That 4-point margin is well below the 8-12 point leads found by a series of media-driven polls released over the past month, and it has some Democrats very concerned, as reported in a piece at The Hill:

“I think a four point lead should be very concerning,” Democratic pollster and founding partner at Hit Strategies, Terrance Woodbury, told Hill.TV.

“We know the enthusiasm gaps between Biden and Trump, with Trump’s supporters being very enthusiastic and insistent on voting for him, margins that close are problematic,” Woodbury added.

A recent USA Today-Suffolk poll found half of Trump supporters said they were “very excited” to vote for the President while 27 percent of Biden supporters said the same.

New York Times-Siena College survey from early June showed similar gaps in voter enthusiasm when looking at battleground states.

[End]

As good an organization as HarrisX is, even its polls on this race remain extremely problematic, for one simple fact: Most Trump supporters are very uncomfortable expressing their real views with any stranger who claims to be a pollster. One poll of Trump voters on Twitter earlier this week showed that well over 70% of the respondents would fear retribution from employers or others for admitting to be a Trump supporter.

That’s how pervasive the media campaign to demonize supporters of the President of the United States has become.

Now, think of what that means for pollsters, even the really good ones like HarrisX. It means you can never be confident that you have compiled a truly representative sample of the American public, no matter how hard you try. This is why no one should waste a bunch of time worrying about these polls, especially four months in advance of Election Day.

Those Democrats have every reason to be worried, because if Biden really does have a 4-point “lead” in the current polls, it likely means he really trails the President by half a dozen points or even more.

That is all.

Watch Tucker Carlson Destroy Don Lemon in 92 Seconds

Down goes Lemon! Down goes Lemon! Down goes Lemon! – Holy, cow, this is brutal. Watch as Tucker Carlson absolutely destroys Don Lemon and CNN in 92 short seconds (Transcript follows):

Transcript: 

Carlson: Now, if you’re running a channel like CNN, you want dumb people on the air because they’re compliant. They’ll say what they’re told, they’ll tell the audience what the moment demands, they’ll never stray from the script, and that’s exactly what Mr. Lemon is doing. But just 7 years ago, it was a different country and people were kind of allowed to say what they think. And so, at the time, here is what Don Lemon was saying about Black communities. Watch this.

Lemon: More than 72% of children in the African American community are born out of wedlock. That means absent fathers. And studies show that lack of a male role model is an express train right to prison. And the cycle continues. So please, Black folks, as I said – if this doesn’t apply to you, I’m not talking to you – pay attention to and think about what has been presented in recent history as acceptable behavior. Pay close attention to the hip-hop and rap culture that many of you embrace, a culture that glorifies everything that I just mentioned: Thug and reprehensible behavior. A culture that is making a lot of people rich, just not you. And it’s not going to.

Carlson: Wow. Can you imagine what would happen if Don Lemon or his body-building buddy over there, or any of these hair hats, said anything like that on CNN tonight, or MSNBC? That would be their last live broadcast ever. They would be fired immediately. You can’t express views like that, and so they don’t. Tells you a lot

[End]

Of course Tucker is 100% right on this: Don Lemon and his fellow “hair hat” hosts at CNN and MSNBC are nothing more than automatons, useful idiots who the honchos at CNN and MSNBC can put on the air and feel certain will stick to the DNC script, whatever that happens to be on any given day.

Lemon is a rank coward – and credibly accused sexual assaulter – and thus will likely not address Carlson’s monologue. But if he were to address it, he would no doubt recite some talking points that had been carefully drafted for him about how times change, and his thinking has evolved on fatherless children, yada yada yada, blah-blah-blah.

Well, what exactly has changed since 2013? That’s easy: First, you have the ascendancy of the Marxist Democrat Party support group Black Lives Matter. Did you know that advocacy FOR fatherless families is one of that domestic terrorist group’s central tenets? That’s right: BLM doesn’t think 72% of Black babies being born out of wedlock is a high enough percentage – these thugs (Lemon’s word) are shooting for 100%, because they know the chaos that creates in the Black communities spreads across the entire country.

The second obvious thing that’s changed is who the President happens to be. In 2013, it was Barack Obama, who spoke frequently about the damage done to black communities by federal policies that incentivize fatherless families in the Black community. Of course, he never implemented a single policy to try to change anything, but he talked a good game.

In that 2013 clip, it’s a safe bet that Lemon was simply parroting recent remarks made by Obama, or perhaps Eric Holder, who was the Attorney General at the time. It has to be something like that, given that Lemon is obviously not capable of forming his own thoughts on any subject. Like Joe Biden staring blankly at the camera in his basement, Lemon was just reading a script.

Today, Donald Trump is the President, which at CNN HQ means that the scripts being handed to Lemon to recite are being compiled to reflect the views of Black Lives Matter, which the Democrats and corrupt media are working feverishly to normalize as a legitimate “civil rights” organization, even though that terrorist group advocates for policies of destruction and deprivation of such rights.

Everything you see today on CNN, MNSBC and 98% of the national news media is engineered with a single goal in mind: To deny the re-election of Donald J. Trump. Lemon is just a mindless automaton with a $200 haircut who looks good in a suit and happens to be a good reader.

The hilarious part of all of this is that Lemon has no idea he read that stuff in 2013, and was probably as surprised as anyone to see that clip. Because the messages he parrots are not his – he’s just the empty vessel who carries them on-air.

That is all.

Jason Whitlock Flays and Exposes the NFL and Black Lives Matter

Over the past month I have received a number of nasty notes from both acquaintances (I hesitate to use the word ‘friend’ for these people) and non-acquaintances over my consistent characterization of Black Lives Matter being essentially the same as Antifa: A Marxist/Anarchist terrorist organization funded by Soros-backed front groups whose goal is the destruction of America.

Black Lives Matter is not, as the corrupt news media continues to contend, any sort of social justice or civil rights organization. You don’t have to take my word for it – all you have to do is visit the group’s website and read its goals and objectives. It is a Marxist-run terrorist organization, period.

If you don’t believe BLM’s own website and public statements by its leaders bragging about how they are all “trained Marxists,” how about Jason Whitlock?

As he noted on Twitter the other day, Mr. Whitlock – a highly-regarded sports writer and sports-TV personality – has been Black since the day he was born. He also has a long and public history of being completely down with the real goals of real social justice and civil rights groups in America.

Whitlock appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program last night and echoed my assessment of BLM to a T. In the process he also excoriated the NFL owners and Commissioner Roger Goodell as cowards who are sucking up to a bunch of Marxists. It was epic.

Here is a clip of the interview – Whitlock comes on at about the 1:40 mark:

Here are some of Whitlock’s statements:

Asked about the NFL’s lack of leadership, Whitlock said:

“I see a lack of leadership. A failure of men. This goes against every value that exemplifies America. The NFL has built itself on unity and there is no way you can do any research on the Black Lives Matter Movement and not see it’s a Marxist movement.”

Tucker asked Whitlock where is NFL commissioner Roger Goodell during this mess?

“Under his desk like a coward. Abandoning those in America that enriched him by doing nothing to back them up. A complete failure of leadership that has men and women falling in cowardice.”

About Black Lives Matter, Whitlock said it is a “Marxist political organization” that does not stand for “Black death nor Black men.”

“It is a political movement. It is a Communist political movement. … I’ve seen many of these guys [NFL owners], they claim they’re in Christianity and their religious beliefs, do they understand Black Lives Matter, Communism, Marxism, is anti-religious? This is a historic failure of men and leadership. This is cowardice at its highest level, this is the NFL jumping the shark and saying we quit being who we said we are. We’re now something else because our money is on the line and we don’t stand for the values we said we stood for.”

[End]

Now, I suppose Whitlock will inevitably become the target of the Perpetual Outrage crowd on Twitter, which leads the cancel culture there. Because there is nothing those on the political left in America hate and fear more than a Black man telling the truth.

Just ask Clarence Thomas and Tim Scott.

Black Lives Matter is essentially the same as Antifa: A Marxist/Anarchist domestic terrorist group. You don’t have to take my word for it anymore.

That is all.

Tucker Carlson: Why Won’t Republicans Investigate Big Tech Monopolies?

Reuters reported this morning that the Department of Justice will propose legislation that would remove exemptions from anti-trust laws enjoyed by big tech firms like Google and Facebook, after Google was revealed yesterday to be engaging in very clear anti-trust behavior in its efforts to de-platform two conservative news sites.

From the Reuters piece:

 The U.S. Justice Department will propose legislation as soon as Wednesday to try to remove protections that big tech platforms like Alphabet’s (GOOGL.O) Google and Facebook (FB.O) have had for decades, a department official said on Wednesday, speaking on condition of anonymity.

President Donald Trump, who has battled Twitter (TWTR.N) and other tech companies over alleged censorship of conservative voices on social media platforms, said in late May he would propose legislation that may scrap or weaken the law shielding internet companies, in an extraordinary attempt to regulate the outlets where he has been criticized.

Trump wants to “remove or change” a provision of a law known as Section 230. Under the 1996 Communications Decency Act, Section 230 does not generally hold platforms responsible for what their users post and allows them to moderate the content of their sites as they see fit.

The Justice Department plans to make a legislative proposal that Congress would have to pass, according to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the proposal.

[End]

Ok, that’s great, and it’s nice to see William Barr getting off his butt and doing something about this. Too bad the same cannot be said about the useless GOP caucus in either house of congress.

I linked to this Tucker Carlson monologue in this morning’s News Roundup, but after watching it again and reading the transcript, it merits more attention.

This is a monologue everyone needs to see and digest, especially Carlson’s points about the utter lack of concern about the clearly monopolistic and aggressive restraint of trade behaviors in which Google and some of the other tech giants are engaging in their zeal to silence conservative points of view in our country.

Carlson focuses in particularly on Utah Sen. Mike Lee, the ex-libertarian, open borders-supporting senator who mainly represents the U.S. Chamber of Commerce these days. No one should be surprised that a wholly-owned subsidiary of big corporations like Lee – who sadly chairs the Senate Antitrust Committee – is a complete sellout on this issue, just as he is a complete sellout on border security. But what comes as a somewhat bigger surprise if you haven’t been paying attention is that Georgia Congressman Doug Collins, who is running for the Senate right now, has been every bit as inactive in his role as ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, which would also have jurisdiction over this matter.

Below is the clip of the monologue, followed by a transcript of Carlson’s comments targeting Lee, Collins and other do-nothing congressional Republicans. On this as in so many other issues, you will see that the GOP congressional caucus remains utterly and completely worthless.

 

Partial Transcript:

All of this raises an interesting question, though. Google says it now holds conservative websites responsible for the comments of their readers. And yet, irony of ironies, thanks to a special carve-out Google has received from the United States Congress — something called Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, remember that — Google itself is not responsible for content on its platform because the Congress says it doesn’t have to be.

So, if you’re slandered by someone, for example, and that slander passes through Google servers, you cannot sue Google over it. Google is immune from the consequences. Immunity is a very nice thing to have if you’re a big company. Fox News doesn’t have it.

But again, thanks to Congress, Google does have immunity, and that’s one of the main reasons that Google’s founders are some of the richest and most powerful people in the world. Because Congress allowed them to be.

Sen. Josh Hawley has pointed this out. Let’s hope he and his colleagues act soon to revoke this privilege. If Google will not extend 230 protections to others, Google should not enjoy those protections itself, obviously.

Google should have faced these consequences a long time ago. Congress should have done this years ago. It’s been clear for a very long time that the Big Tech monopolies have now surpassed the federal government as the chief threat to our liberties.

Tucker Carlson, 2017: Google is the most powerful company in the history of the world. It’s the portal through which the bulk of our information flows. That means that if Google isn’t on the level, neither is our understanding of the world. To an unprecedented extent, Google controls reality.

Now, Google has already shown a disturbing willingness to distort reality for ideological ends.

And now it is happening. Google is acting directly to shape what people can say and what they’re allowed to speak. It’s a direct effort to stifle free speech. All of that is even truer today.

So why hasn’t the Congress done anything about this? Well, we’d love to ask Sen. Mike Lee of Utah. We invited him on the show. He would not come. We’ve invited him before, he would not come then.

Why do we ask him? Because Lee chairs the Senate Antitrust Subcommittee. He is the man who could do something to protect you from Google, but Lee has not bothered to do that. Instead, Mike Lee repeatedly has taken the side of the Big Tech companies over your constitutional rights — the constitutional rights Mike Lee is sworn to uphold and protect but refuses to.

So, the question is, why is Mike Lee still sitting in the United States Senate? He should not be in the Senate, that is for sure. We are hoping Mike Lee is soundly defeated in his next primary by someone who cares about the Constitution and more to the point, about protecting Americans from the actual threats they face. We are fervently rooting for that day. We will celebrate it when it happens. We trust it will.

So, how about House Republicans? Well, this spring, Congressman Doug Collins, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, and Jim Sensenbrenner, the ranking member of the Antitrust Subcommittee, released a letter defending Google and the other tech monopolies from scrutiny. They attacked any investigation of the tech companies that might have “preconceived conclusions that large tech companies are inherently bad or must be broken up.”

They actually wrote that. Who is paying these guys? And more to the point, whose side are they on? Again, let us hope for a vigorous primary challenge to these two and any who share this view.

Year in and year out, we vote for these people in the fervent hope they will stand up for us when it matters. Now it matters. And now, like every time before, they sell us out.

Time is up. Seriously, it is too much. The stakes are too high. We need better leadership. We need someone to protect us. Nobody is.

[End]

The apparent insanity involved here, of course, is that these supposedly “conservative” Republicans refuse to lift a finger to protect the constitutional rights of alternative media outlets that strive against the rank hostility from these social media giants and the mainstream news media to support the policies that the GOP supposedly hold dear.

The only logical assumption to make about that, given the facts on the ground, is that Republicans in congress really don’t care much about those policy positions at all. Thus, getting anything done will be left up entirely to President Trump and Attorney General Barr.

That is all.

Wednesday News Roundup: Google Monopoly, CHOP Follies, Bolton Sued and More

Tired of all this #WINNING yet? – The markets boomed on Tuesday, with the Dow shooting up by more than 500 points and the NASDAQ approaching 10,000 again at the close. The news that retail sales for May had rocketed up by an all-time record 17.7% (as opposed to an “expert” projection of 8%) provided the main impetus for yesterday’s gains, Democrat/Media panic porn over the coronavirus notwithstanding.

Futures point to a higher opening again today, as the markets continue to try to climb back from their big losses of last Thursday.

In case you missed it… – Comcast/NBC News and Google conspired yesterday to de-platform two conservative news sites, The Federalist and ZeroHedge, in about the clearest example of monopolistic behavior one could ever witness. You can read all about it at yesterday’s Evening Campaign Update.

In his opening monologue last night, Tucker Carlson discussed the obvious dangers of the Department of Justice and Congress sitting by and doing nothing as one company – Google – controls more than 70% of all online advertising cash flow:

It is beyond any question that Google today is exactly what Standard Oil was 120 years ago: A blatant monopoly that engages in restraint of trade and other unfair business practices against its competitors and others – like The Federalist and ZeroHedge – that it does not approve of. If the federal government cannot summon the integrity and political will to properly regulate and break up Google – just as it did with AT&T in the 1980s and 1990s – then congress should just repeal the anti-trust laws and drop all pretense of the existence of a fair and competitive marketplace.

It’s a start. – As expected, President Donald Trump signed an executive order on policing reforms at a White House ceremony on Tuesday.

Axios provides a succinct summary of the Order’s main provisions:

The big picture: Under the order, police departments that meet certain standards, outlined by the Justice Department, on use of force will be given access to federal grants, a senior administration official said on a call with reporters on Monday.

  • Departments must ban the use of chokeholds to receive such certification, unless an officer is targeted by deadly force.
  • The order also moves to create a national registry to track police officers with multiple instances of the use of excessive force.
  • The order also includes new programs that would help law enforcement officials better deal with mental illness, homelessness, and addiction — including encouraging departments to involve mental health professionals and social workers to work alongside officers in the field.

Worth noting: The order does not address larger concerns about systemic racism and racial profiling in law enforcement.

  • “I strongly oppose the radical and dangerous efforts to defund, dismantle and dissolve our police departments. … Americans know the truth: Without police, there is chaos. Without law, there is anarchy,” Trump said.

Democrats naturally were entirely negative about the order, refusing to give the President any credit for all the many actions he has taken during his presidency to improve lives in Black communities around the country. A great example came when Bret Baier interviewed South Carolina Cong. James Clyburn on his show last night. Watch as Clyburn lies through his teeth in order to avoid saying anything positive about the President or this EO:

Such despicable people.

From our “You Just Cannot Make This Stuff Up” files…. – Rather than enforcing the law over the multiple obvious felonies that have been committed by the radical Antifa activists who created it, the City of Seattle’s government continues to treat the CHOP as if it is a legitimate autonomous country and is now even negotiating deals with those same activists.

Yesterday, the City went to great expense to remove the graffiti-smeared temporary barriers to entry and egress the activists had set up, replacing them with costly concrete barriers designed to ensure no vehicles can enter the area:

Is the 'CHOP' here to stay? City adds concrete barriers to ...

I guess the city’s despicable Mayor and city council members look at this as a civic beautification project. in exchange for the fancy new barriers, the Antifa activists agreed to reduce the size of their stolen territory from 6 square city blocks to 3, but the remaining territory still encompasses the Seattle PD’s 3rd Precinct building.

Pathetic.

Just for fun, Tucker Carlson gave his viewers a look at life inside the CHOP on his show last night. It is exactly what you would expect when a bunch of 20-something nerds who have never had a productive moment in their lives take charge:

DOJ sues John Bolton, aka, Trump’s Biggest Mistake. – Former National Security Advisor John Bolton is back in the news, once again for bad reasons. The Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against the 1970s pornstache-sporting gadfly in an effort to block publication of his new tell-all gossip book because it very predictably contains classified information, which publisher Simon and Schuster refuses to remove.

From a report at Fox News:

The complaint argues that Bolton submitted his book, “The Room Where It Happened,” for publication without first getting permission from the government through the prepublication review process and that the book contains classified information.

The Justice Department wants the court to issue an order to Bolton “to notify his publisher that he was not authorized to disclose ‘The Room Where It Happened’ because he has not completed prepublication review and because it contains classified information” and for his publisher to delay the release of the book. The book is scheduled to hit shelves next week.

Bolton attorney Charles Cooper responded Tuesday night: “We are reviewing the government’s complaint, and will respond in due course.”

The Trump administration has long contended that a manuscript of Bolton’s memoir contained classified information, but that the way the material was woven into the narrative would make a traditional “scrub” impossible.

Sources told Fox News the classified information was “part and parcel” of the entire storyline.

[End]

So, here we see the DC Swamp/Deep State in action: John Bolton, a lifelong Swamp snake and ostensible Republican attempting to publish a book whose clear goal is to help the Democrats and their addled presumptive nominee, Joe Biden, win the 2020 elections.

We should also remember the fact that Bolton played a big role in helping Adam Schiff and San Fran Nan dummy up the false narrative they used to hold the country hostage for 6 months last fall and winter while they pushed their sham impeachment. Bolton is just Mitt Romney with a really bad haircut, stupid-looking mustache and ill-fitting suits.

That is all.
