Thursday News Roundup: Biden Goes Berserk, Portland Riots Mount, de Blasio Goes Full-on Nazi

Here is an angry old white man exercising his white privilege and verbally assaulting a Black reporter who is just trying to do his job. – That’s how the corrupt hacks at CNN and the New York Times would describe the video below if it involved a Republican.

But hey, it’s Joe Biden, so the only thing that gets reported out of this incident is that Biden was trying to “clarify” the fact that he has not ever taken a cognitive test despite his claim a couple of weeks back that he is “tested all the time.”

Here’s the clip:

You could never make this stuff up, folks.

Oh, but it gets better. – Here is the Democrat Party’s Unfrozen Caveman Presumptive Nominee explaining how he would deal with China if he wins the election:

If that doesn’t give you a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, nothing will.

This is happening in Australia. Not Russia. Not China. Not Venezuela. Australia. – It will eventually happen in the United States if we, the people don’t make this madness stop. Watch this video featuring Katie Hopkins and realize that this is nothing more than the logical conclusion of where Democrat governors – an a few Republicans, too  – want to take us:

An entire major city, locked in their homes, unable to travel more than 5 km, unable to go to the grocery store with anyone else including their children, all schools and child care centers closed, all non-essential businesses closed, everything shut down for six solid weeks due to the deaths of 7 elderly patients, all of whom were over the age of 70 and some of whom probably did not die to to COVID-19.

If you think this cannot happen in America, you just have not been paying close enough attention to what has already been happening.

For example, here is what communist Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti is now doing in Los Angeles with the full approval of communist Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom:

But it gets even worse in New York City. – Andrew Cuomo, the ghoul Governor of New York who is personally responsible for the deaths of thousands of elderly New Yorkers in the state’s nursing homes, has been bragging for weeks now about how the worst of the viral gift from China is over for his state.

Ok, fine. But if that’s the case, why is the Big Doofus, New York City’s communist Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio, implementing Nazi-style check points at which his cops are wasting their time checking the papers of everyone entering and exiting the city?

From a report at NBC4 New York:

Mayor Bill de Blasio said New York City would start implementing checkpoints across the five boroughs to help enforce Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s quarantine order for travelers from viral hotspots, citing the ongoing national COVID threat.

The measure announced Wednesday is the first significant effort by New York City specifically to help enforce the 14-day quarantine for travelers from 34 states and Puerto Rico. In revealing it, de Blasio said the state was “absolutely right” to impose the travel restriction in the first place. Cuomo announced it in late June.

The governor has said the quarantine itself is imperfect and Mayor de Blasio admitted New York City’s new enforcement plan has some caveats as well. But the idea, the mayor said, is to send a strong message to people coming in.

“The checkpoints are going to send a very powerful message that this quarantine is serious. Even if we can’t reach every single person I think it’ll get the message across,” de Blasio said. “We don’t want to penalize people. We want to educate them, make sure they’re following the rules.

[End]

Thus, the descendants of thousands of Holocaust survivors who still live in New York City are getting a real-life taste of the kinds of crackdowns their ancestors experienced. Right here in America, where their descendants fled after the War.

Surreal.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, the “peaceful protesters” continued their efforts to destroy Portland. – Hey, at least the police are now being allowed to use tear gas. In Democrat-run cities in America today, that is what we call “progress.”

The intrepid real journalist Andy Ngo is as always on the ground getting the truth out while the corrupt corporate media continues to lie about it. As usual, the riots were still ongoing as I began to compile this piece at 5:30 CT. Here are some highlights of the hijinks and shenanigans these “peaceful” kids were engaged in:

Hey, at least they’re attacking a local police precinct instead of the federal courthouse now.

So, you might be wondering how the leadership of communist Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler and his fellow communist Democrats on the city council is working out for the people of the city in terms of violent crime. Well, Mr. Ngo is on top of that, too.

Check this out:

So, just like New York City; just like Chicago; just like Minneapolis; just like Seattle. All Democrat cities run by communist Democrat Mayors and city councils dominated by communist Democrats.

There’s a pattern here, folks, and it isn’t hard to detect. Well, unless you’re a Democrat or a corrupt reporter, that is.

That is all.

Candace Owens: “This is the Greatest Rigging of an American Election”

Candace Owens, the great young Black conservative political activist who helped to start the #WalkAway movement that will likely lead to President Trump receiving a significantly higher percentage of the Black vote this year, had some really smart things to say about this election in an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation yesterday.

Owens’ view is that COVID-19 and the panic around it created by the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the corporate news media amounts to the “greatest rigging of an American election” we have ever seen. At this point, it is pretty hard to argue with that assessment.

Here are several clips from that interview, followed by a transcript of some of her key quotes from it:

Transcript:

“Coronavirus is the greatest rigging of an American election that has ever taken place— and we are all unwitting participants.

“We don’t see the candidates, right? The candidates are not allowed to travel. They can’t talk about their policies. Who knows? They’re already saying now, at The New York Times, that there might not be a debate.

“The Left is completely hiding their campaign. That is their strategy: ‘We’re going to hide Joe Biden so you never have to meet him. And, at the same time, we’re going to tell the current president that he can’t he can’t travel – but, if he does any events, if he has a room full of people, that it’s all dangerous and against safety measures and it’s not right.

“Then, you have them talking about mail-in voting, which we know is corrupt. We know it’s corruptible. We know that it allows for tons of rigging.

“Now, they’ve crashed the economy and forced a ton of people that maybe would have considered some conservative voting, it they had a job, their lives were together.

“Well, now they’re relying of the Left’s Socialist system. They’re relying on stimulus checks. And, that means they’re going to be more inclined to vote for someone who has more Socialist perspective.

“They’re not allowed to work, right? So that naturally puts them out of the category of voting that they maybe would’ve been in if things had been normal, right?

“So, we see all this stuff happening and we’re supposed to think that November is not being impacted by all of this.

“Of course it is.”

[End]

Yes, of course it is.

Equally as compelling were Owens’ comments on how leftist Democrats have “destroyed Black America”, after the interviewer asked her about a flyer distributed for years by the Museum of African American History that attributed all manner of family values-kinds of things as being exclusively “white” and thus, things Black Americans should shun.

Here are some of the quotes from that passage:

“Because they’re trying to destroy Black America. I shouldn’t even say ‘trying.’ They’ve successfully destroyed Black America. And they’ve done it through culture. They’ve done it by telling kids that there is something wrong with aspiring to do things right.

“You can see this now in certain schools – they are trying to teach kids that there is something wrong with even trying to learn to speak proper English. They’re saying that that is wrong and racist. So, they’re talking about introducing courses in Ebonics – slang – that Black Americans need to develop their own sub-culture apart from White American culture.

“The problem is that this idea of separation and not actually rising to the challenge, and getting smarter and competing and learning proper English…there has never been any group of people that have lagged behind another group of people and gotten ahead by this method.

“A great example of this is David Hume, when he challenged the Scottish people, when they were trailing behind the English people for so long, he turned to the Scottish people and he said to them in the 17th century, you know, we’ve got to learn proper English. Rather than him saying that having to learn proper English is wrong and it’s racist, they rose to the challenge and within a couple of decades the Scots actually passed the English in engineering and science.

“Because they rose to the challenge.”

[End]

Great stuff there.

That is all.

EPIC: Jim Jordan Pummels a Dissembling Anthony Fauci in Friday Hearing

Anthony Fauci, the most clear and present danger to the survival of the American Republic today, appeared before some committee or other in the House of Representatives Friday morning. There he had to face a Jim Jordan who was armed for bear, determined to expose Fauci for the raging hypocrite he truly is.

I don’t have time to transcribe the clip below, but you should take the time to watch and hear it. As you do, you will see Fauci repeatedly refuse to admit to the obvious fact that the enormous crowds of protesters and rioters we saw throughout the month of June and have continued to see in lesser numbers throughout July helped to spread the Wuhan virus. You will also see Fauci claim that he never opines about whether or not certain specific group activities – like going to church or going to the gym or going out to dinner – should be allowed or banned.

As you watch him make these claims to Mr. Jordan, remember that Fauci has in fact issued such opinions many, many times. He has in fact advocated that church attendance be drastically limited. He has in fact advocated for the closing of restaurants, bars, movie theaters, sporting events and many, many other types of businesses. His pronouncements and opinions have in fact served as the very basis for putting millions of working Americans out of jobs and destroying hundreds of thousands of American businesses over the past four months.

But, when challenged by Jordan to simply admit that enormous crowds of rioters, looters and bombers obviously would help to spread the virus, Fauci suddenly finds himself unable to express an opinion.

Watch:

This little man is a menace to your freedoms and to our very way of life.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Americans Must Stop Listening to Fauci and Birx

The greatest deflection tactic in American history took place on Thursday. – Here it is:

Note the time stamp on that tweet. It was put out by the President 16 minutes after the Trump Administration released the GDP numbers for the second quarter. Those numbers weren’t good; but then, no one expected them to be good, given that the second quarter was when our country went literally insane on the catastrophic advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci (more on that little menace to society in a moment).

President Trump obviously didn’t want to see the corrupt new media mis-reporting on those numbers as the lead story for the next several days, so he put out the single most magnificent troll tweet since Twitter was invented. Every corrupt reporter and editor and talking head and idiot Democrat/communist in America immediately exploded with rage and hysteria, which was exactly the reaction the President had wanted to achieve. Coverage of the down economic quarter pretty much evaporated.

Late in the day, his goal achieved, the President explained the tweet by basically saying, ‘hey, I was just asking a question.’

Hilarious. He’s the cat-person with a laser pointer; the corrupt news media is his cat.

Birx and Fauci roll out their next tool to control your behavior. – In a TV interview on Wednesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci told the corrupt talking head that “If you have goggles or an eye shield, you should use it.” Thus does the media campaign to pressure governors and the President to require goggles or eye shields begin.

On Thursday, the Queen of Scarves, Dr. Deborah Birx, joined in the brainwashing campaign, saying “Here’s the thing about the face shield in addition to the mask: the mask is to protect others. The thing about the face shields – we think that that could protect the individuals and that it would decrease the ability for them to touch their eyes and spread [the] virus as well as those droplets coming towards them.”

Remember: These are the very same two “doctors” who just 3 months ago were telling you not to wear masks because they are ineffective at stopping the spread of a virus and are actually harmful to your own health. But now, masks have somehow become the key to everything. You must wear them, not only when you enter a store or restaurant or gym or any other public facility, but anytime you freaking go outside.

It’s not about protecting your heath, it’s about controlling your behavior.  These are not just random remarks by these two “doctors”: They are intentional, calculated statements designed to start another media-led panic. Why? Because the “case” numbers related to the China virus are once again falling.

You are the frog, and they are boiling you.

Speaking of media-led panic campaigns… – The corrupt national media will refuse to report it, but their panic campaign to demonize HydroxyChloroquine took another big hit on Thursday.

From a piece at the Federalist:

The Lancet, a peer-reviewed medical journal that published a 96,000-subject study indicting the efficacy of the politically controversial hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 has retracted its findings that the malaria medication led to an increased risk of death.

“Today, three of the authors of the paper, ‘Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis”, have retracted their study,” The Lancet said in a retraction statement Thursday. “They were unable to complete an independent audit of the data underpinning their analysis. As a result, they have concluded that they ‘can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources.”

“We deeply apologise to you, the editors, and the journal readership for any embarrassment or inconvenience that this may have caused,” the authors of the study wrote.

The study was first published in May and was the largest ever conducted analyzing the impacts of hydroxychloroquine after President Donald Trump was reported to be taking the medication as a precautionary measure following possible exposure to the virus.

Legacy media meanwhile, with its animus for Trump, used the study to attack the president and his physician for taking a medication that had anecdotally shown potential promise in treatment of infection while posing few risks. Trump had previously touted the possible benefits of the medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration for emergency use during press briefings to reporters who pinned the death of an uninfected man who drank fish tank cleaner outside of medical guidance on the president.

[End]

Let’s all remember that Dr. Fauci himself – who praised HCQ’s effectiveness as a treatment for viral infections in 2005, and said he would himself prescribe it in early March – used this specific study as a means of bashing HCQ:

The man is a menace. He is a menace to our entire society. He has used his position and the media idolatry towards him as a platform to lie to us repeatedly and with malice aforethought. We will never be able to return to normalcy as a society until we shun him and Dr. Birx and reassert our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms.

Speaking of HCQ… – Fauci, Birx and their evil media minions took another big blow where HCQ is concerned yesterday. In Ohio, the Pharmacy Board withdrew a rule banning the use of HCQ, which was entirely motivated by political hatred towards President Trump. Why are the rescinding it? Because of complaints from actual, real doctors who want to prescribe it to their patients and are having great success with it as a treatment for COVID-19.

From a story at the Butler County Journal News in Ohio:

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy withdrew a rule preventing hydroxychloroquine from being sold in the state as treatment for coronavrius after Gov. Mike DeWine called for the board to halt the rule.

As a result of the feedback received by the medical and patient community and at the request of Gov. DeWine, the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy has withdrawn proposed rule 4729:5-5-21 of the Administrative Code,” read a statement from the board. “Therefore, prohibitions on the prescribing of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine in Ohio for the treatment of COVID-19 will not take effect at this time.”

The board will reexamine the rule with the help of the State Medical Board of Ohio, clinical experts and stakeholders to determine the next step.

The rule, which was scheduled to go into effect today, would prohibit pharmacies from selling or dispensing hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for coronavirus unless the use is approved by the board’s executive director. The rule would also void all previous approvals of the drug.

The governor said in a statement Thursday that he agreed with Stephen Hahn, commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, that the decision to treat the virus with hydroxychloroquine should be between a doctor and patient.

[End]

Again, we must as a people ignore the edicts of Fauci and Birx, who are nothing more than tools of people who hate you and would rather you were dead. We can never return to normalcy until we shun them as the menaces to our society that they truly are.

That is all.

Friday News Roundup: Fauci’s Errant First Pitch, Trump Cancels Convention, and the Truth About the Portland Riots

Not to be mean, but…well, yeah, ok, to be mean because this little menace to society richly deserves it. – Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Democrat operative who has worked so hard to destroy our nation over the last four months with his constantly-shifting, always-wrong narrative about the Wuhan Virus, threw out the first pitch at the Washington Nationals game last night.

Very predictably, it all went very, very, very wrong. Watch:

So, 15 feet short and 27 feet outside – every bit as accurate as anything he has had to say about the viral plague from China. The man is consistent if nothing else.

Bob Uecker Just A Bit Outside GIFs | Tenor

But keep your social distance and wear those masks, folks! – Here’s the little menace later, setting an example for the rest of America:

Yeah, you’ll never see that photo on CNN or MSNBC.

Dr. Fauci does not just kowtow to hypocrite Democrats, he personifies them.

But never fear, the little menace was still on the job earlier in the day, doing everything he can to continue to destroy America’s economy and society, in an interview with MarketWatch.

Here’s the headline of the story:

Anthony Fauci tells MarketWatch: I would not get on a plane or eat inside a restaurant

Holy crap.

 

Speaking of #EnemiesOfThePeople, here is how the New York Times is lying to its readers about the Portland riots today:

And here is the truth about the riots and the rioters, brought to you each and every day by a real journalist, Andy Ngo:

You will never see any of that reported by the New York Times or CNN or MSNBC or any of the three broadcast network news.

Enemies of the people, one and all.

This is hysterically funny. – Watch Charlie Hurt’s face as the dimwitted Marie Harf tries to avoid the question from Harris Faulkner, and find some way to blame Republicans for what is happening in cities Democrats have run into the ground for decades:

Honestly, it’s hard to know how she manages to dress herself each day. Maybe she doesn’t.

 

The climate alarmists are going after the polar bears again. – The good news is that 20 years ago, the climate alarmists assured us that all the arctic polar bears would be gone in 15 years because of “global warming”. That not only did not happen, but the population of polar bears actually multiplied.

The bad news is that the climate alarmists – supported as always by a slavish, corrupt news media establishment – are back going for polar bear gold again. Only this time, instead of just giving themselves a mere 15 years to be wrong, they’re giving themselves an entire lifetime so that none of them will be around to be mocked when the polar bears are still doing just fine in the year 2100.

Take a gander at this:

Yeah, that’s not going to happen, either. Just your dishonest climate alarm community, supported by your corrupt, fake news media, at work.

The lies and corruption never end.

Speaking of lies and corruption, watch for a Wuhan Virus miracle in Florida. – At his press conference on Thursday, President Trump announced that the RNC is cancelling the in-person part of the Republican National Convention, which was to be held in Jacksonville, Florida.

Thus, the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media have achieved their goal. Don’t be surprised if the number of new COVID-19 “cases” suddenly begins to fall in the weeks to come.

Just as you were brainwashed by the media to believe you were obligated to elect a Black president in 2008; and just as you were brainwashed by the media to believe you were somehow obligated to elect a woman president in 2016; you are being brainwashed today to utterly and completely ignore all of the real data and science about the Wuhan Virus for purely political reasons.

This is nothing new, but it does grow more intense and focused and transparently dishonest with time.

That is all.

Celebrate: Navarro Op-Ed Signals White House Break With Fauci

Peter Navarro, the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy for President Donald Trump, grew weary of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s grandstanding and chronic flip-flopping in public long ago. Back in April, Axios reported on a confrontation Navarro had with the little menace to American society during a Coronavirus Task Force meeting at the White House:

Toward the end of the meeting, Hahn began a discussion of the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, which Trump believes could be a “game-changer” against the coronavirus.

  • Hahn gave an update about the drug and what he was seeing in different trials and real-world results.
  • Then Navarro got up. He brought over a stack of folders and dropped them on the table. People started passing them around.
  • “And the first words out of his mouth are that the studies that he’s seen, I believe they’re mostly overseas, show ‘clear therapeutic efficacy,’” said a source familiar with the conversation. “Those are the exact words out of his mouth.”

Navarro’s comments set off a heated exchange about how the Trump administration and the president ought to talk about the malaria drug, which Fauci and other public health officials stress is unproven to combat COVID-19.

  • Fauci pushed back against Navarro, saying that there was only anecdotal evidence that hydroxychloroquine works against the coronavirus.
  • Researchers have said studies out of France and China are inadequate because they did not include control groups.
  • Fauci and others have said much more data is needed to prove that hydroxychloroquine is effective against the coronavirus.
  • As part of his role, Navarro has been trying to source hydroxychloroquine from around the world. He’s also been trying to ensure that there are enough domestic production capabilities inside the U.S.

Fauci’s mention of anecdotal evidence “just set Peter off,” said one of the sources. Navarro pointed to the pile of folders on the desk, which included printouts of studies on hydroxychloroquine from around the world.

  • Navarro said to Fauci, “That’s science, not anecdote,” said another of the sources.

Navarro started raising his voice, and at one point accused Fauci of objecting to Trump’s travel restrictions, saying, “You were the one who early on objected to the travel restrictions with China,” saying that travel restrictions don’t work. (Navarro was one of the earliest to push the China travel ban.)

[End]

Yesterday, in response to Fauci’s continuing efforts to undermine national policy in his myriad media appearances, Navarro penned a sterling op-ed for USA Today. As is his habit, Navarro is devastatingly succinct and precise in laying out the many reasons why Fauci deserves to be ignored in the nation’s ongoing efforts to effectively deal with the Wuhan Virus pandemic.

From the op-ed:

Dr. Anthony Fauci has a good bedside manner with the public, but he has been wrong about everything I have interacted with him on.

In late January, when I was making the case on behalf of the president to take down the flights from China, Fauci fought against the president’s courageous decision — which might well have saved hundreds of thousands of American lives.

When I warned in late January in a memo of a possibly deadly pandemic, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases was telling the news media not to worry.

When I was working feverishly on behalf of the president in February to help engineer the fastest industrial mobilization of the health care sector in our history, Fauci was still telling the public the China virus was low risk.

When we were building new mask capacity in record time, Fauci was flip-flopping on the use of masks.

[End]

There’s more, and you should go read the piece in full. The simple fact of the matter – as we have pointed out repeatedly here – is that Fauci has yet to get any single aspect of this viral gift from China right. As Navarro points out, the little menace has been wrong about everything, often with catastrophic results to our society.

Even now, Fauci is out in the media declaring that it would be “dangerous” for the U.S. to reopen schools this fall when literally every other nation on earth is opening their own schools and getting their kids back to learning. As clearly exhibited by his multiple love letter to Hillary Clinton and all of the selfies he has had taken with Clinton, Pelosi and other leftist luminaries, Fauci is nothing more or less than a tool of the Democrat Party who has worked from Day 1 to undermine America’s response to the virus, in the process intentionally undermining America itself.

Fauci himself admitted last week that he has not been allowed to brief the President in more than 2 months, and the fact that Navarro was allowed to author that op-ed clearly signals that his relationship with the White House has been officially severed.

That, folks, is a very good thing for our country.

The Corona Panic Porn Just Never Ends

California Governor Gavin Newsom, a despicable Democrat, tanked a major stock rally today by announcing he was re-closing his state. Newsom attributes his latest irrational, probably illegal action to his state’s rising number of “cases” of COVID-19, a number everyone knows is vastly inflated and fraudulent.

As Newsom takes this action motivated solely by politics, the folks at the Daily Caller thought it was important to remind readers what was taking place in Los Angeles a month ago, because Newsom says this is still ok.:

Oh. Any questions?

Meanwhile, in other COVID-19 news… – Alex Berenson has an important CORONAPANIC UPDATE from Florida:

Oh.

Remember the goal in Florida is to inflate the numbers so high that they justify cancelling the GOP National Convention. So, expect them to go much, much higher in the next 2-3 weeks.

And a fair warning from @EthicalSkeptic about the flood of “new” deaths to come, as states that have withheld that data will now start claiming it is all “covid-related” to keep the panic going:

Despicable.

But none of this fits the narrative, so, carry on.

Masking the Truth: It’s not about the Virus, It’s about Obedience

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

The Left has sprinted past what we previously thought was a line in the sand between personal freedom and forced, state dictates for personal behavior.

The breach of that boundary has led to numerous other fundamental rights crumbling to dust along with our historical monuments.

There is still time to restore those boundaries and our rights but only if we start telling the truth en masse and defying unjust edicts from lawless lawmakers.  Sadly, we can no longer depend that there will be enough lawful lawmakers to protect our liberties. We must protect them.

Coronavirus is still being used as an excuse to crack down on our freedoms despite false projections that even the CDC dramatically ratcheted down months ago.

Democrat governors and other politicians are refusing to relinquish the “emergency powers” they have awarded to themselves that allowed them to continue lock downs and restrictions of citizens and their businesses on their whim.

As if they somehow thought of it independently, they continue to act simultaneously to tighten their demands and micromanage our lives.  They have now moved from suggesting to demanding that we all, no matter our health, risk level, or opinion are to be forced to wear masks in public. What a perfect and ever-present reminder that we are not in charge of our lives. They are.

Even weak-willed Republicans like Governor Greg Abbott of Texas have become lost in this masquerade.

It doesn’t matter whether masks work or make sense. It only matters that it has been a wildly successful tool for obedience training in collectivism for Americans. Socialism can’t take hold without it.

The avowed and secret socialists among us are engaged in an all-out battle to punish America for being built precisely on that individualism and for flourishing because of a constitution that was created to protect it.

While Democrat tacticians have their Democrat politicians ramping up threats of fines and jail time for refusing to wear a mask, they’re also pushing the idea that masks are “cool.”  There is a whole new cottage industry that is marketing masks as an opportunity to make a “signature” fashion statement. There’s nothing quite like superficial individuality to “mask” one’s prostration to serfdom and conformity.

Savvy watchers of the Left were suspicious early on when they noticed a familiar Leftist tactic being warmed up and served for public consumption. They went to work making it socially acceptable to vilify dissenters and brand them as selfish. They rush to reward it.

How dare anyone question the efficacy of masks or the use of bullying and intimidation to force Americans to comply?  How dare anyone care about their own personal freedom and the freedom of their fellow citizens, even those too ignorant or complacent to care?  “We’re in the middle of a pandemic!” They scold, self-righteously.

Masks create further alienation and suspicion between friends, neighbors and business associates. They muzzle us while helping snitches to easily identify dissenters.

We have seen how deadly the combination of collectivism and social bullying can be. It can often lead to mob rule and violence. At that point, politicians don’t have to worry about enforcing their unconstitutional orders. The mob does it for them.

Masks also blur the lines between criminals and law-abiding citizens. We are indistinguishable from Antifa and other groups who now commit heinous crimes in plain sight and with impunity. The backward subliminal message is that masked people are law-abiding and unmasked people are criminals.

After watching the same Democrat politicians refuse to impose their own orders on rioters, looters and vandals, their credibility is lower than the fatality rate of the coronavirus.

In light of such a blatant dereliction of duty to protect their innocent constituents, they still have the chutzpah to claim that it is compassion that compels them to order us to wear masks.

The good news is that a growing number of people believe that these suffocating orders are ridiculous and even dangerous. The bad news is that most still only whisper it in muffled tones behind their cloth masks.

As we have seen, complying with the orders of authoritarians only brings more authoritarianism. Masks will continue to be a major battleground on which we can beat it back.

Previously polite, law-abiding citizens must unmask themselves and let their voices be heard. Unlike their oppressive opposition, they have little interest in vilifying those who choose to wear a mask for their own reasons.

In the 1982 film, Ben Kingsley portrayed Gandhi as saying, “100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate.”

It’s time to stop cooperating.

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

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

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

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

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

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

From a report at the Wall Street Journal:

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

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

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

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

[End]

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

From a story at Fox News:

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

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

[End]

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

More from the story:

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

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

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

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

[End]

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

This is unacceptable.

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

Enough. America has had enough.

Have a Happy Independence Day anyway!

Tuesday News Roundup: Nike Takes a Dive, Fauci’s Putting on a Show, and the Truth About Texas

Being “woke” = going broke. – At least that appears to be the case for Collin Kaepernick-supporting Nike. In case you missed it, the woke shoe maker that seems to have contracts to supply the shoes and uniforms for most major sports teams across the globe somehow managed to report a princely $790 million loss for the 4th quarter of 2019.

The company blames part of the loss on store closures related to COVID-19, but that can’t be true, given that none of those closures took place until late in the first quarter of 2020. Nike also announced that it will be executing a big layoff as the result of its losses, which come on the heels of the massive, Kaepernick-focused advertising campaign it ran during the second half of 2019.

Here is a corporate BS-filled statement issued by Nike:

“Consumer Direct Acceleration is the next digitally empowered phase of our strategy,” Nike said in a statement. “We are building a flatter, nimbler company and transforming Nike faster to define the marketplace of the future. We are shifting resources and creating capacity to reinvest in our highest potential areas, and we anticipate our realignment will likely result in a net loss of jobs.”

[End]

Blah-blah-blah, yada-yada-yada, losses and layoffs. Bad management reaps bad results. Tough.

CNN’s Ryan Lizza is the Jim Acosta of Yameche Alcindors:

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. That question is something you might expect a snot-nosed 12 year-old junior high dumbass to ask. This is why the White House should never hold another press briefing and should revoke all press passes. These corrupt reporters are a pestilence on our country.

Ever wonder what Dr. Fauci does with that mask once he thinks the cameras have been turned off? – Now we know:

This man is a national menace who has lied to us every step of the way. For him, it’s all just a show.

Can’t get any real information about what’s happening in Texas related to COVID-19? – You are in that boat if you rely on TV or the newspapers for your “news.” They only report the top-line number, which is the number of new “cases,” a number we all know is hyper-inflated by hospitals so they can maximize revenue from the federal government.

If you want real, actual detailed information, you are left to go to Twitter, of all places. Specifically, you must go to Alex Berenson’s Twitter feed. Yesterday, he received an email from a senior executive at one of the state’s major ER chains of hospitals:

Here are the attachments (this is long but worth the read):

Bottom line is this:

– More people being tested means more “cases”;

– Virus is now showing up in a much younger group of patients than before, mainly because employers are telling anyone who sneezes or has the sniffles at work to go get tested;

– The vast majority of the new “cases” show very mild or no symptoms at all;

– Those admitted to the hospital see stays that are much shorter than seen during March thru May;

– Texas hospitals are not in danger in any way of being overwhelmed by this new outbreak.

Governor Abbott, unfortunately, is just another politician who has now overreacted by succumbing to the media’s panic porn about this surge in new cases, once again denying tens of thousands of Texans the right to make a living and shutting down thousands of businesses.

By its systematic refusal to report the full truth about what is really happening in Texas and other states where the number of cases is surging, our corrupt news media is, intentionally or not, destroying our country’s way of life and causing catastrophic damage to our economy. They are the very worst and most destructive class of people in our society today.

New Jersey Voter Fraud Incident Reveals Democrat Plan for November

But…but…but…we’ve been assured by Nancy Pelosi and Jake Tapper that voter fraud with mail-in ballots is a myth. – They wouldn’t lie to us, would they?

Why yes, yes they would.

About 1/5th of all ballots cast in a Paterson, New Jersey special election for city council have been thrown out by a judge as being fraudulent. Mail-in ballots were stolen from mailboxes by Democrat political operatives, filled out with forged signatures and mailed in as part of a scheme led by four men, Councilman Michael Jackson, Councilman-Elect Alex Mendez, Councilman Shahin Khalique, and Abu Razyen.

This kind of voter fraud is a virtually 100% Democrat phenomenon, perpetrated all across the country, mainly in low-income and heavily-minority communities. From a piece at The Federalist:

Khalique and Mendez both won their races by incredibly close margins. Mendez ousted incumbent William McKoy with a mere 245-vote lead. Khalique’s race was decided by a difference of only eight votes, though a recount placed him exactly equal with his challenger.

Jackson, Mendez, and Khalique have all been charged with the following: fraud in casting mail-in vote in the third degree, unauthorized possession of ballots in the third degree, tampering with public records in the third degree, and falsifying or tampering with records in the fourth degree. Mendez also faces charges of second-degree election fraud and third-degree false registration or transfer. Rayzen is charged with fraud in casting mail-in vote and unauthorized possession of ballots, both in the third degree.

The frustration with fraud is leading some to call for the total invalidation of the election. A local NAACP leader, Rev. Kenneth Clayton, argues the city should have an entirely new election due to the rampant alleged fraud.

“These kinds of acts make people not want to vote anymore. They feel disenfranchised, disconnected that their votes don’t count, and that is not fair to people,” Clayton said. He is filing a formal complaint to New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, who ordered the election to be exclusively mail-in.

Benjie Wimberly, deputy speaker of the New Jersey Assembly, likewise criticized the governor for the policy. He too fears voter disenfranchisement, and believes the state should do more to allow in-person voting to prevent these kinds of issues.

[End]

Note that the people who are doing the complaining about how easy it is to commit rampant fraud in a mail-in election are also all Democrats, who understand what the deal is here.

This kind of voter fraud has long in fact been one of the most common kinds practiced by Democrats. It has been in practice for decades involving absentee ballots, focused in areas where Democrat officials control local governments. If you control the local government, you have access to the list of local citizens who request absentee ballots. From that point, it is a simple thing to find out what day the ballots are being delivered and have operatives follow mail trucks through the relevant neighborhoods and remove the ballots from mailboxes. I have actually watched such operations in action in South Texas.

But doing this with absentee ballots is admittedly more difficult, precisely because those ballots must be requested by the voter in advance, as President Donald Trump notes here:

Mail-in ballots do not have that extra layer of security – Democrat operatives could just follow mail trucks around on the right day and loot every mailbox in neighborhoods where residents can’t afford security cameras. In a 100% mail-in election like Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are pushing this year, millions of Americans would end up being completely disenfranchised.

Over the past 20 years, Democrat governors and party-controlled legislatures in a growing number of states have ordered that all voting be conducted by mail. If you don’t think fraud just like this is widespread in elections in those states, you are hopelessly naive.

We have to understand that Democrats literally believe they are entitled to power because they are better people than you are. Armed with that conceit, they absolutely believe that any means necessary to obtain and maintain political power are absolutely justified.

Everyone needs to communicate with their U.S. senators to ensure they kill any proposal from the House – where Pelosi rules with a decrepit fist – that would mandate a national mail-in election. There is no question at all the Democrat Party plans to use COVID-19 as a justification to steal this election. The future of the country is really at stake.

Texas Gov. Abbott Falls for False COVID “Case” Reporting

Texas hospital hoax ensnares the Governor. – Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced yesterday that residents in the counties that are home to Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio must wear masks whenever they visit any business establishment.  His new order will become effective at 6:00 tonight, and will remain in effect through August 4. Which is fine, although it is sad to see Gov. Abbott falling victim to the “case” counting fraud the state’s hospitals are committing.

I’ve told you repeatedly over the past two weeks that every hospital in my home state – and I understand in many other states as well – have been scamming the taxpayers by classifying every incoming new patient who tests positive for COVID-19 as a “COVID-19 Related” case. It doesn’t matter if the patient is there for knee surgery or tonsillitis or to have their appendix removed, they officially become a part of the fraudulent COVID “case” count.

The hospitals are doing this because congress stupidly included a flat $36,000 per-patient reimbursement to hospitals for all “COVID-19 Related” cases in one of its early stimulus bills. So this is one big money scam, and there cannot be any question now that Gov. Abbott is aware of that fact, because his own spokeswoman for the Texas Department of State Health Services, Lindsay Rosales, confirmed that fact to JustTheNews his week:

Lindsey Rosales, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of State Health Services, confirmed to Just the News this week that the state is categorizing every inpatient in the state with a positive COVID-19 test as a COVID-19 hospitalization.

“The number of hospitalized patients includes patients with a lab-confirmed case of COVID-19 even if the person is admitted to the hospital for a different reason,” Rosales said.

Asked if inpatients in the state are tested for COVID-19 whenever they arrive for treatment, Rosales said, “Hospitals set their own protocols for determining when and if to test patients for COVID-19.”

She said the state does not keep track of the patients hospitalized with the coronavirus versus those hospitalized specifically because of it.

[End]

Which is exactly what I told you earlier this week

Governor Abbott justifies his new order by claiming that “COVID-19 Related” patients are filling up the state’s hospitals and ICU beds, but that is not at all the case. Read the letter below from the head of the Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council:

 

Only 38% of available respirators in use for just over 1,000 actual COVID-19 patients, who make up less than 10% of patients in the area’s hospitals. For this, Governor Abbott includes a new prohibition on elective surgeries in his new order.

Madness. Absolute, utter fraud and madness. A reader asked me on Wednesday why I think this mis-counting of “cases” is such a big deal. Well, here it is: The intentional miscounting of “cases” is creating perverse incentives for political leaders to make bad policy.

To be clear: I don’t mind wearing these masks, and have been doing so since March on every trip to the grocery store or any other public place, if only to make other people feel more secure. I’m fine with it. What I’m not fine with is public officials making policy that is likely unconstitutional based on false filings made by hospital officials who should be held accountable.

Shame on Governor Abbott for supporting and refusing to acknowledge this blatant case of hospital fraud in the Lone Star State.

Important Info on Texas “COVID-19 Related” Hospitalizations

Some continue to doubt me when I write that, in Texas, every person who goes into a hospital for any reason is being tested for COVID-19 and, if they test positive, their “case” is being listed as “COVID-19 Related.”

Check out this Twitter thread from this morning orginated by Alex Berenson:

Here is a reply from Amanda Carlson:

Here is the full screenshot of the reply she received from TDSHS:

Image

Clear enough?

So, whether you have checked into the hospital for elective surgery, a car accident, the chicken pox or a facelift, if you test positive for COVID-19 in Texas your “case” gets added to the grossly-inflated number referred to as “COVID-19 Related” in the Lone Star State whether you are showing any symptoms or not.

This explains why, as Berenson points out, the number of “cases” keeps rising while the numbers of available ICU beds and ventilators remains unchanged. It also explains why the number of daily deaths continues to fall despite the rising number of “cases”. Because a whole bunch of Texans with active antibodies but no symptoms are being classified as COVID-19 “cases” by a money-grubbing hospital system.

That is all.

The COVID-19 Data the Corrupt News Media Won’t Report

On Sunday, the U.S suffered its fewest Wuhan Virus-related deaths since March 23. If you get your news from CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times or any of the other corrupt major U.S. media outlets, you did not know that.

But it’s true: Across the entire United States, just 267 people had their deaths listed as being “COVID-19 Related”, a categorization that everyone know is grossly inflated. Take a look at this chart compiled from CDC data if you don’t believe me:

US Deaths Coronavirus

The country has been on the downside of that curve since April 18, more than two months ago, during which time the number of daily deaths has consistently and dramatically fallen. That has happened despite the fact that most states began re-opening their economies around that exact same time, despite the dire predictions from the professional purveyors of panic porn that we would see a dramatic spike in hospitalizations and deaths as the economy began to come back.

None of that happened. And because none of it happened, the media and their Democrat masters shifted focus to wailing about the rising number of “cases” as testing for the viral gift from China ramped up and hospitals and doctor’s offices began once again treating patients for non-emergency problems. These days, even Fox news focuses almost solely on the number of “cases,” for the simple reason that that is the only COVID-19 related number that is still rising.

[By the way, that word, “cases,” was intentionally and carefully chosen by the corrupt news media over what it had previously referred to as “positive tests.” Do you understand why? It’s because the term “cases” implies that a person who tests positive has had to be hospitalized, which is the disinformation they want you to believe, even though the vast majority of those testing positive never have to set foot in a hospital. Joseph Goebbels would be beaming with pride over this little trick.]

BUT WHAT ABOUT FLORIDA!!!!! you scream, since the corrupt reporters you watch and read have been screaming that at you for the past two weeks.

Well, there is this from Alex Berenson this morning:

See? The only thing that has spiked in Florida is positive tests, i.e., “cases.” Because the number of people being tested every day in Florida has risen dramatically in recent weeks, just like it has everywhere else.

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SHORTAGES OF HOSPITAL ROOMS AND ICU BEDS!!!! you scream for the same reasons. Again, that’s not happening, not even remotely:

BUT…BUT…BUT WHAT ABOUT TEXAS!!!!! you scream because one of your panicked friends misunderstood what Gov. Abbott said last week and sent you a panicked text

Well, there’s this:

Image

Oh.

BUT HOW CAN THAT BE WHEN CASES ARE GOING UP!!!!! you scream because Jake Tapper told you to.

The answer to that is simple: The vast majority of people who contract this virus either never display symptoms or the symptoms they do display are so mild they do not require a visit to the hospital.

Since Day 1 that this pandemic became widely known in the United States, millions of Americans have been walking around with it in their systems but not displaying symptoms. But we did not have the ability to perform widespread testing for it until mid-April, so no one had any real idea of just how widespread that phenomenon is. As testing has risen and the massive number of new “cases” has risen along with it, we are getting some idea.

The main idea we are getting that really matters is that this flu virus has a death rate that is going to end up being lower than that of the common flu once all the testing has been done and the true extent of the infected population becomes firmly known.

Here are other things we now know that we did not know just two months ago:

  • There are multiple treatment regimes that are highly effective in attacking this virus, and more are being developed every day;
  • We know who the truly vulnerable segments of our population are to this virus, and know far more about how to protect them;
  • We know that anyone under the age of 45 or so who is not grossly overweight and does not have pre-existing lung or heart conditions is virtually impregnable to this virus;
  • We know that the way in which we attacked this pandemic, by issuing blanket stay-at-home orders and shutting down the vast majority of the economy, was tragically and disastrously wrong; and finally
  • We know that literally nothing Drs. Fauci and Birx told us about this virus back in March was correct. Not one word.

So, there you go – a collection of the news about the Wuhan Virus that you will not see reported today in the mainstream, corrupt news media.

That is all.

The Democrat/Media Panic Porn is Losing Traction Fast

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

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – The stock markets had a bleak opening Monday morning following a weekend during which the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies loaded the airwaves with Wuhan Virus panic porn. The Dow opened down by more than 600 points, with the NASDAQ and S&P 500 also down from Friday’s highs. For awhile it seemed as if the panic porn parade at CNN and MSNBC would be able to cancel out all of the positive inertia that had underpinned the markets for the previous month.

But then a funny thing happened: About an hour into the session the markets slowly began to recover. Later in the day, after the Federal Reserve Board announced it would begin making purchases of corporate bonds, it recovered fully, with the Dow finishing the day in the green by 157 points. Today promises to be even better, as futures point to a positive opening which could see the NASDAQ achieve another new all-time record high.

The Democrats and their media toadies are going to need a new false narrative. The panic porn is failing.

Speaking of failed panic porn… – Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt is looking for a bigger venue. That’s because more than 1 million Americans have now requested tickets to attend this Saturday’s Trump Campaign kickoff rally in Tulsa.

With Trump fans already camping out at the 19,000 seat BOK arena in downtown Tulsa, Stitt can see that that facility is inadequate to satisfy demand for the event. “We’re excited we’re being recognized as one of the first states to safely and measurably reopen,” Stitt told reporters Monday. “I’m looking for a potential other venue that maybe we could move it outside. It’s still kind of in the works.”

The corrupt news media, doing the bidding of its Democrat Party masters, continued to ramp up the pressure on the Trump Campaign to cancel the event based on the false narrative of a “second wave” of the viral gift from China supposedly taking place. Even Fox News’s Martha MacCallum got in on the action last night during an interview with Lara Trump, but Ms. Trump was having none of it.

“Everybody has a choice. Nobody is being forced to sign up to come to this rally,” Lara Trump told host Martha MacCallum. “This is a record-setting response that we have gotten to this and I think it speaks to the fact people are ready to get back to life.

“You contrast, Martha, the way the media and the experts have talked about this Trump rally — this one Trump rally where it’s around 20,000 people that can be in attendance in this arena — with the way that they discussed the protests where we had thousands of people all across this country,” she added.

[End]

Interestingly, one of the arguments the Axis of Disinformation has made against the rally is that it would put so many people together in an indoor arena. Moving the event to a larger, outdoor facility – to, say, the 30,000 seat H.A. Chapman Stadium, where Tulsa University football games are played – removes that argument from the playing field, so to speak.

The Panic Porn campaign is failing. There are a lot of different ways to skin this cat. This event is going to happen.

It’s failing in New York City, too. – Yesterday evening we told you about the despicable action by New York City’s antisemitic Mayor, Bill de Blasio, of having his police department put padlocks and welds on the gates of the main park in the middle of Brooklyn’s largest Jewish neighborhood. It’s the latest move in an increasingly aggressive and highly disturbing campaign the Mayor has mounted targeting the city’s Jewish community, justified, of course, by all the disinformation spread about the Wuhan Virus.

That happened yesterday morning. Yesterday evening, leaders of that Jewish community took matters into their own hands:

This is America, folks, these are Americans, and that is one of the most American things you will ever witness. There is no science, no data and most importantly, no real law supporting the notion that their children – who are almost impregnable to this virus – should not be able to play at the local park. Just the fascist edicts of an utterly corrupt nitwit drunk on power in the Mayor’s office.

These Americans are not buying into all the panic porn being spoon-fed to them every night on their television screens, and neither should you.

It’s time for America to become a free country again.

That is all.

New Democrat/Media Panic Porn Push Creates Key Leadership Test for Trump

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

Panic Porn propaganda campaign pays off with tanking stock markets. – The Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda’s latest Wuhan Virus-related panic porn campaign is already achieving two of its major goals: 1) It has halted the upward momentum in the stock market as investors start to fear a return of lockdowns in states that have already reopened; and 2) it is providing corrupt Democrat governors like New York’s Andrew Cuomo with a convenient excuse to renew crackdowns on elements of the public he doesn’t like.

The Dow tanked 1,800 points on Thursday in reaction to the latest ham-handed presentation by Federal Reserve Board Chairman Jerome Powell, but recovered a third of that loss on Friday as the positive inertia behind the market’s rise regained traction. But a weekend of Democrat/media panic porn has investors spooked once again, and the Dow futures are threatening to wipe Friday’s gains off the board. As usual, bad news for America is considered good news by the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the news media.

As for Cuomo, let’s start by showing you the scene in Brooklyn yesterday, about which he expressed zero concerns about social distancing or wearing of masks:

This, folks, was a “Black Trans Lives Matter” rally, attended of course by about 90% brain dead white New York liberals. Governor Cuomo no doubt celebrated that outpouring of rank stupidity.

Here is what Cuomo did choose to complain about:

That’s right: Cuomo has zero concerns about 10,000 people closely packed together and chanting mindless slogans in Brooklyn, because those are his people. That’s his voter base. But try to make a living cutting hair or let more than 25% capacity into your bar, and he’s ready to bring out the state police to fine you and shut you down. Because people who actually make a living, run a business and pay taxes in New York State are not necessarily part of his v0ter base.

See how that works?

The news media – including Fox Business, by the way, on which guest host Degan McDowell led off Mornings With Maria this morning with a 3-minute panic porn report – continues to pound on what it calls an “uptick in ‘cases’ and hospitalizations related to the coronavirus’ despite the fact that those “upticks” are isolated to a few states and are the results of two overriding factors:

  • we continue to do more and more testing as time goes on, which will naturally lead to more positive results; and
  • hospitals in most states are now able to admit patients for elective and non-emergency surgeries, and the first thing they do with any of those patients is to test them for the Wuhan Virus. Regardless of the reason why the patient checked into the hospital, if he or she tests positive, the case is then tagged as being “COVID-19 related.” You can be there for a knee replacement, a tonsilectomy or to have warts removed, but to the CDC, you are listed as a coronavirus patient.

Even in spite of all of the CDC’s various efforts to ensure over-reporting of hospitalizations and deaths related to COVID-19, here is a chart of the official CDC data:

As you can plainly see, the numbers of deaths and “cases” continue to steadily fall nationwide. Yes, there are a few states that are seeing “upticks,” but even with all the intentional over-reporting, the nationwide trend is unmistakably downwards.

The stated goal of all of the irrational shutdowns – “flattening the curve” – as undoubtedly been achieved. There is simply no science-based or data-justified reason for any governor to renew stay-at-home orders and other artificial means of denying their citizens the right to make a living. Any governor who chooses to do that is motivated purely by rank partisan politics.

The third goal of this renewed Democrat/media panic porn push is of course attempting to prevent President Trump from re-starting his campaign rallies, the first of which is scheduled this coming Saturday in Tulsa. That’s just 5 days away, and you can be sure that the entirety of the media establishment and every Democrat in America will be pushing the panic button harder and harder as this week progresses.

It is vitally important that the President refuse to give in to this obvious, blatant push to further damage our country. He must not give in to the massive pressure that will be coming his way and ramping up all week. This is the crucial moment in which he will either show real, true leadership in the face of adversity or give in to the mob. If he chooses to do the latter, then frankly, he will deserve whatever he gets at the polls in November.

He’s never let us down to this point, and personally, I can’t wait to watch his speech in Tulsa come Saturday.

That is all.

The Evening Wrap: Alex Berenson Debunks the Media’s Latest Round of Panic Porn

Alex Berenson – that rarest of endangered animals, a real working journalist – has done yeoman’s work on Twitter in debunking the rampant and intentional disinformation spread by the corrupt news media relate to the Wuhan Virus and the government’s response to it. His new book on the subject, “Unreported Truths About Covid-19 and Lockdowns“, was initially blocked by the evil minions at Amazon, and then shot to the top of the bestseller list once the minions relented due to popular demand.

Now that President Donald Trump has announced his plans to renew his massive campaign rallies around the country in the coming weeks and months, the Democrat/Media Axis of Propaganda has once again gone into high gear in an effort to convince the nation that we are suddenly in the middle of a “second wave” of the virus, even though there is zero data to support the claim.

Today, Berenson completely debunked this new round of Covid-19 panic porn in 10 easy tweets. Here is what he said:

2/ So: you’ve heard positive tests are up in several states. True. The media refers to these as “cases,” as if positive tests have clinical significance by themselves. They do not. The vast majority of people with positive tests do not become ill enough to need hospitalization…

3/ Much less intensive care or ventilator support. For people under 50, this is true in the extreme. But the daily age distribution of positive tests is rarely if ever supported…

4/ Second: you’ve heard overall hospitalizations are up in some states. This is also true. THIS IS A FEATURE, NOT A BUG. Overall hospitalizations are rising because people are returning to hospitals for elective (and in some cases very necessary) surgeries that were postponed…

5/ Now, in some of these states COVID-related hospitalizations have also risen (though they make up a tiny fraction of overall hospitalizations). Scary, right? No. When people go to the hospital for elective surgeries they are now routinely tested for COVID…

6/ Whether or not they are symptomatic. Hospitals have financial and legal as well as medical incentives to do this. IF THEY ARE POSITIVE, hospitals will report them as COVID patients (since, technically, they are), EVEN IF THEY HAVE NO COVID SYMPTOMS.

7/ This fact accounts for the bizarre disconnect between the fact the number of people going to emergency rooms with influenza-like or COVID-like symptoms is NOT rising (and remains in the low single digits) even in states reporting more hospitalizations…

8/ As well as the fact that fewer hospitalized cases are now progressing to ventilators (I can’t swear to this in every state, but it appears to be a trend)…
9/ And the fact that deaths no longer seem to have any relationship to case counts in many states (true even accounting for the fact that deaths lag). The question you should be asking yourself: why aren’t Europe and Asia seeing post-lockdown spikes if this trend is real?
10/ And don’t say masks. Masks are not routine in Europe. So either COVID is somehow different post-lockdown in Europe (and different in different states, too)… or this is just one last gasp of panic porn.

There. Wasn’t that easy?

Meanwhile, Creepy Uncle Quid Pro China Joe Biden weighed in with this:

Quote: “You know the rapidly rising…uh, umm, uh…in with, uh…with, uhhhh, I don’t know, uh…”

Terry McAuliffe is right: Hidin’ Biden really is better off staying in the basement.

Thanks, Dr. Fauci! Thanks, Democrat governors! Thanks, corrupt news media! – CBS reports today that fully 40% of Black-owned businesses are not expect to survive the Fauci/Democrat/media-driven response to the coronavirus.

From the CBS piece:

Jameian Selmon kicked off 2020 with a dozen employees and a full slate of weddings and birthday parties booked for her thriving event-planning company in Minneapolis. Less than four months later, her company is gone — one of hundreds of thousands of black-owned businesses around the U.S. that have closed permanently amid the economic rubble caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

After Minnesota shuttered non-essential employers in March, one client after another called to cancel, costing her $120,000 in business. “As more things got shut down, the weddings for May canceled, then the weddings for June canceled, then July,” said Selmon, 42.

“It was really hard for me to let them go,” she added in recounting the day she was forced to fire her workers. “It’s always been my dream to employ people, and the girls cried. The others, they understood.”

Nearly half a million closures

There were more than 1 million black-owned businesses in the U.S. at the beginning of February, according to research from the University of California at Santa Cruz, which drew from Census survey estimates. By mid-April, 440,000 black business owners had shuttered their company for good — a 41% plunge. By comparison, 17% of white-owned businesses closed during the same period, the UC Santa Cruz research shows.

[End]

Tragic. But Democrats are fine with this outcome, because many of the owners of those now-closed Black businesses will end up on welfare and other federal assistance and become more reliable Democrat voters. The fact that they are pushing yet another round of utterly false panic porn proves that they simply do not care about individual Americans of any color.

All they care about is the obtaining and maintenance of political power. Never forget that.

That is all.

Another Tucker Carlson Opening Monologue Every American Should See

Tucker Carlson’s opening monologue last night was a brilliant exposition of the manner in which our nation’s leaders have used a public health emergency to subvert American democracy. If we don’t all wake up soon – including President Trump and his military leaders – the consequences could become too ingrained to be peacefully reversed.

This is a monologue every American needs to watch and read. Thus, I, your loyal servant, hereby provide the clip of the video, along with a painstakingly-compiled transcript for those of you who still prefer to read stuff.

Video Clip:

Transcript:

Millions of Americans remain subjected to unprecedented restrictions on their personal lives, their daily lives, their family lives. The coronavirus lockdowns continue in many places. You may not know that because it gets no publicity, but it’s true.

If you’re living under it, you definitely know. As a result of this, tens of millions of people are now unemployed. A huge number of them have no prospects of working again. Many thousands of small businesses are closed and will never reopen.

Many Americans have become dependent on drugs and alcohol, seen their marriages dissolved, become clinically depressed. Some of them have delayed their weddings. Others were banned by the government from burying their loved ones and funerals. Some Americans will die of cancer because they couldn’t get cancer screenings. Some unknown number have taken their own lives in despair. Others have flooded to the streets to riot because bottled up rage and frustration take many forms.

The cost of shutting down the United States and denying our citizens desperately needed contact with one another is hard to calculate, but the cost has been staggering. The people responsible for doing all this, they have no regrets about it.  “We faced a global calamity,” they say. “COVID-19 was the worst pandemic since the Spanish flu.”

That flu killed 50 million people.

“We had no choice. We did the right thing.” That’s what they’re telling us. Is it true? The answer to that question matters not just because the truth always matters, but because the credibility of our leaders is at stake here.

This is the biggest decision they made in our lifetimes. They were able to make it, they rule because we let them. Their power comes from us.

So the question now and always is, are they worthy of that power? That’s not a conversation they want to have. And right now, they don’t have to have that conversation because right now, all of us are distracted and mesmerized by the woke revolution underway outside. They created a separate country in Seattle. As we said, we will bring you the latest on that in just a minute.

But we think it’s worth taking a pause to assess whether or not they were, in fact, lying to us about the coronavirus and our response to it. The short answer is this: Yes, they were definitely lying.

As a matter of public health, conclusively, the lockdowns were not necessary. In fact, we can prove that and here’s the most powerful evidence — states that never locked down at all, states, where people were allowed to live like Americans and not cower in indoors alone, in the end, turned out no worse than did states that had mandatory quarantine, the states you probably live in.

The states that did lock down and were quick to reopen have not seen explosions of coronavirus cases. All of this is the opposite of what they said would happen with great confidence.

The media predicted mass death in places of Lake of the Ozark and Ocean City, Maryland — the place where the middle class dares to vacation. But those deaths never happened.

In the end, the Wuhan coronavirus turned out to be a dangerous disease but a manageable disease like so many others. Far more dangerous were the lockdowns themselves.

For example, in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts — panicked and incompetent governors forced nursing homes to accept infected coronavirus patients. And as a result, many thousands died and they died needlessly. This is all a remarkable story but its going almost entirely uncovered.

The media would rather tell you why you need to hate your neighbor for the color of his skin. The media definitely don’t want to revisit what they were saying just a few weeks ago, whend they were acting as press agents for power-drunk Democratic politicians. Back then, news anchors were ordering you to stop asking questions and obey.

[Plays montage of CNN/MSNBC anchors lying about the Wuhan Virus]

Boy, that montage was the opposite of a Mensa meeting. Has that much dumbness been captured on tape, ever? The last clip you saw was from May 25. That was just over two weeks ago. “98,000 people are dead! How dare you leave your house?” If you don’t work in the media, you’re not essential.

But it didn’t take long for that message to change completely. In fact, it took precisely 5 days.

[Plays another montage of Don Lemon being an idiot, which he does quite well.]

Yeah, “don’t judge, this is how this country was started, by looting CVS and setting fire to Wendy’s. You took American history. You knew that!”

[Plays another montage of Chris Cuomo.]

One minute they were mass murderers for going outside. Now they are Sam Adams. They are patriots, they are American heroes.

If all of this seems like a pretty abrupt pivot, fret not. Rioting is not a health risk – as long as it helps the Democratic Party’s prospects in the November election, rioting will not spread the coronavirus.

Sounds implausible, but we can be certain of that because last week hundreds of self-described public health officials signed a letter saying something. They announced that the Black Lives Matter riots are a ‘vital contribution to public health.’ In effect, they’re an essential medical procedure.

But that doesn’t mean you get to go outside. You don’t. Thanks to coronavirus, you do not have the right to resume your life. And if you complain about that, it’s quote, “white nationalism.” That was a ‘professional’ conclusion.

Does a single American believe any of that? No, of course not. It is too stupid to even for CNN to repeat, so they mostly ignored it.

That’s an ominous side if you think about it. It means these people are done trying to convince you, even to fool you. They’re not making arguments, they are issuing decrees. They think they can. They no longer believe they need your consent to make big decisions to run the country. Once the authority stops trying to change your mind, even by deceit, it means they’ve decided to use force, and they have.

During the lockdowns, people whose loved ones died were not allowed to have funerals for them. Think about that; it’s hard to think of anything crueler, but it happened to a lot of people. They claimed it was necessary. It was not necessary, and we know that they because now that a man has died whose death is politically useful to Democratic Party, the authorities have given him three funerals and not a word about a health risk.

Or consider King County, Washington — that’s where Seattle is. Restaurants in King County are operating at just 25% capacity. That’s the law now. Nonessential businesses are allowed 15% capacity. The effect of that is an economic disaster. Most small businesses run on very small margins. They can’t survive for long, and many have failed.

What should they do? They should join Antifa, obviously, because in King County, Washington, Antifa can do whatever they want to do. They’ve taken an entire six-block section of downtown Seattle, and that’s fine with health authorities. There is no social distancing required. They are essential.

Are you getting the picture? Is this adding up to our message? Yeah, the message is:  you were played. We were all played, corrupt politicians scared us into giving up control over the most basic questions in our own lives. At the same time, they gave more power to their obedient followers like Antifa while keeping the rest of us trapped at home and censored online.

In other words, they used a public health emergency to subvert democracy and instill themselves as monarchs. How are they able to do this? The sad truth is they did it because we let them do it. We believed them, they are therefore we obeyed them. If there’s anything good to come out of this disaster, it’s that none of us will ever make that mistake again.

[End]

Take that all to heart, friends, because it is the plain, unvarnished truth.

That is all.

Virus Fear Porn Returns and Democrats Screw Up Another Election

China’s Communist Party, circa 1990: We have too many people. I have a great idea! Let’s kill all the girl babies to keep the population down!

China’s Communist Party, circa 2020: We don’t have enough women for all the men. I have a great idea! Let’s legalize two-husband marriages!

Think I’m kidding?:

I promise you that I am not nearly not creative-minded enough to make this stuff up.

Speaking of inconsistency of thought… – 

Media/Dems/Fauci last week: It is a crucial matter of public health that all these protesters ignore social distancing and loot and burn cities.

Trump: I’m gonna start holding rallies in the next two weeks!

Media/Dems/Fauci now: Hey! Hey! Hey! What about those social distancing rules???????

*sigh*

Don’t believe me? Check out these news results when you search “Anthony Fauci”:

The New York Post: “Anthony Fauci warns that ‘nightmare’ pandemic isn’t close to over

CNBC: “Dr. Anthony Fauci says WHO’s remark on asymptomatic coronavirus spread ‘was not correct‘”

USA Today: “Viruses like the one that causes COVID-19 have long been Dr. Anthony Fauci’s ‘worst nightmare’

It’s like clockwork, folks: The COVID-19 brainwashing campaign has restarted in earnest for the simple reason that President Trump is about to start campaigning again. What better way to try to harm his campaign than having 98% of the media – taking their talking points from Fauci, who has been 180-degrees wrong about every damn thing related to this virus – to portray his rallies as dangerous to the public health?

Georgia gives us a November preview. – Very predictably, Georgia’s Democrat primary election yesterday has turned into a complete cluster-you-know-what. There were rampant malfunctions of new, court-mandated voting machines, and voters in minority areas of big, Democrat-dominated metro areas in DeKalb and Fulton counties had to wait in line for hours in order to cast their votes. Imagine that.

The corrupt news media it doing its best to blame the fiasco on GOP Governor Brian Kemp, but the reality is that the political parties and county governments are in charge of determining the number and locations of polling places, and the new, faulty voting machines were mandated by the state’s supreme court as a result of a lawsuit brought by notorious loooooooser Stacey Abrams.

RNC Chairman Ronna McDaniel summarized the situation in a series of tweets:

What happened with Georgia’s primary election is unacceptable and a case study in Democrat mismanagement. Most of the chaos occurred in large Democrat-run counties, like Fulton, which was already under investigation and had thousands of absentee ballot requests “go missing.”

Democrat counties also had problems with the new voting machines, a system that resulted from a Stacey Abrams-backed lawsuit and a ruling from an Obama-appointed judge.

It’s the latest example of how Democrats’ phony “fight to stop voter suppression” can end up actually suppressing votes itself.

Counties themselves are responsible for determining things like how many in-person polling locations there are and training workers on how to use equipment. The chaos has resulted in Fulton being under “at least three investigations into its shoddy elections management.”

The bottom line: Democrats couldn’t run a caucus in Iowa, but they want to redesign our entire election system in a matter of months? Too many mail-in ballots with too few in-person voting sites – while suing to eliminate safeguards – is a recipe for disaster.

That pretty much sums it up, all right. November is gonna be a nightmare, folks.

That is all.

The Evening Wrap: The WHO is Back to Obfuscation After a Rare Moment of Honesty

After a rare moment of actual honesty, the World Health Organization has now returned to its normal obfuscation and narrative engineering. Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO’s technical lead on the Wuhan Virus, created a firestorm on Monday when she went off-script and admitted publicly that asymptomatic people “very rarely” transmit the virus to others.

That admission, which has become increasingly apparent over time to anyone really following the data trail on the virus’s spread, effectively meant that pretty much everything we have done as a society in response the virus has been wrong. It means that the right approach all along would have been to quarantine those who have tested positive, protect the vulnerable elderly and those with pre-conditions by having them stay at home, and effectively treat those who became ill.

Instead, based faulty guidance from inept “experts,” catastrophically inaccurate statistical models, dishonest toadying by the WHO on behalf of the ChiCom government and rampant hysteria in the global news media, we shut down the economy, threw tens of millions out of work and destroyed hundreds of thousands of businesses. Even worse, we still have a dozen or more Democrat governors keeping their states locked down for purely political motives. All based on a false narrative perpetuated by the WHO.

Obviously, this could not stand, especially since Dr. Kerkhove’s admission destroys any shred of justifications for governors like Gretchen Whitmer and Ralph Northam to keep their states in lockdown mode through November. Thus it was that Dr. Kerkhove was back in the media today claiming that she had been misunderstood, and that she had sort of, kind of misspoken.

As reported by Sara Carter:

She said during a live Q & A that streamed on social media, “I was responding to a question at the press conference. I wasn’t stating a policy of WHO or anything like that. I was just trying to articulate what we know. And in that, I used the phrase ‘very rare,’ and I think that that’s a misunderstanding to state that asymptomatic transmission globally is very rare. I was referring to a small subset of studies.”

“We do know that some people who are asymptomatic or some people who don’t have symptoms can transmit the virus on,” she said.  Then she added that she was relying on “two or three studies”, as well as unpublished reports from some countries to the WHO for her statement. Then she tried to explain that based on some models (mind you not studies), the virus could have a higher rate of infection transmission from asymptomatic persons to others.

“Some estimates of around 40 percent of transmission may be due to asymptomatic, but those are from models, and so I didn’t include that in my answer yesterday but wanted to make sure that I covered that here,” she said.

[End]

Get that? She was referring to peer-reviewed scientific studies and unpublished reports from some countries when she made her statement, from which she really did not actually back off. But then she goes on to say that, well golly, some models show the virus could have a high rate of asymptomatic transmission.

Oh. You mean like the models that told us back in March that 2 million Americans would be dead by now? Those models?

So, it’s like the Climate Change scam, then: Who are you gonna believe, our models or your own lyin’ eyes?

In the end Dr. Kerkhove said just enough today to provide the media/Democrat hysteria factory with the propaganda it needed to prop up its false narrative for a little longer.

These people are despicable. Enemies of the people, one and all.

That is all.

Tuesday News Roundup: Pelosi’s $10.99 Cultural Appropriation and Romney’s Bridge to Nowhere

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

So, what was this really all about?

Image

Do any of you think that every Democrat member of congress just keeps a Kente cloth garment lying around the office to pull out on special occasions? Or is it more likely that maybe last Wednesday, at a meeting during which they were planning how to milk maximum political leverage out of this carefully-choreographed George Floyd funeral tour, some enterprising staffer found this on Amazon:

Image

So, you order 50 of those, and presto! Even Gerrold Nadler can have his very own Kente cloth scarf, all for the cost of about $550.

Do you think there is a single person among that group of congressional Democrats who has the slightest understanding of the origins of the Kente cloth, or what its meaning is? Because, to very real human beings in Ghana, which served as one of the central staging points for the African slave trade centuries ago, those cloths and their patterns do have very special meaning.

They aren’t some costume for cynical politicians to wear to Halloween parties, not some modern-day version of the blackface get-up worn by the Ralph Northams and Justin Trudeaus in their younger days. Do you suppose that Nancy Pelosi or Gerrold Nadler or a single one of their Democrat colleagues gave any of that a moment of thought as they dressed up for their moment of disgraceful cultural appropriation? If you do, you’re a fool.

When asked at her press conference if she thought maybe she and her colleagues were using the garments to pander to Black voters, Pelosi just smiled and asked, “Well, is it working?” What else do you need to know?

Incidentially, Pelosi’s is a good question, one to which I really don’t think we know the answer yet. It’s a long time until November, folks.

Does he keep notebooks full of black people, too? – Then there’s pathetic RINO Mitt Romney, who spent about 30 seconds interfering in a Black Lives Matter march on Sunday to get his own photo op:

Tremendous Sincerity': Trump Mocks Mitt Romney for Joining Black ...

In a report at The Hill today, Romney, the most whitebread white guy in the entire U.S. Senate, says that he wants to be the catalyst who forces change in the GOP’s relationship with the Black community:

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Monday said his party has “an embarrassingly small share of African American votes” and would like to change that, one day after he marched in a protest in Washington.

Romney said he is working with several Republican colleagues on legislation to “make some changes to the way we do our policing” in an effort to crack down on aberrant officers who violate civil rights or use excessive force against people of certain races.

He noted that Democrats who unveiled a police reform bill earlier Monday did not reach out to any Republicans to discuss the legislation beforehand.

He said the lack of outreach indicates it “is designed to be a message piece.”

He said he hopes to put together what ultimately will be bipartisan legislation to reform policing that can pass the Senate.

He said any legislation “needs to have people on both sides of the aisle working together.”

[End]

Let’s just all ignore the fact that President Donald Trump has, at urging of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, already stolen much of the thunder from any congressional deal on this with his signing of prison reform legislation last year. That prison reform bill, by the way, repealed several of the provisions targeting young Black males contained in the 1994 crime bill signed by Bill Clinton – and co-sponsored by Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden.

Yeah, let’s ignore all of that because Mitt freakin’ Romney thinks he’s going to be the guy who bridges the gap between the GOP and the African American community.

*sigh*

Dear Republicans: With a bridge like Mitt Romney, you might as well have a bridge to nowhere.

Donald Trump No GIF by Election 2016 - Find & Share on GIPHY

Democrats hate Jewish people, part 62,532. – New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and his NYPD have looked the other way as tens of thousands of protesters, rioters, looters and arsonists have turned much of New York City into Dresden circa 1945 for the past two weeks, never saying word one about social distancing or wearing masks.

But boy, let a group of maybe a dozen Hasidic Jewish kids who are at zero risk of getting or spreading the Wuhan Virus congregate together in a local park, and this is what happens:

Disgusting hypocrisy and Antisemitism on display.

The first leak in the Minneapolis dam. – A manufacturing company that employed 50 Minnesotans says it will move elsewhere after city officials refused to do anything to prevent its facility from burning to the ground week before last. Kris Wyrobek, President and owner of 7-Sigma, Inc. told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that “we are sorting through the rubble, trying to figure out how to get this operational again. We are cautiously optimistic we can do that. But we are certainly not able to do that in Minneapolis.”

From the Tribune report:

“They don’t care about my business,” said Kris Wyrobek, president and owner of 7-Sigma Inc., which has operated since 1987 at 2843 26th Av. in south Minneapolis. “They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own.”

Wyrobek said the plant, which usually operates until 11 p.m., shut down about four hours early on the first night of the riots because he wanted to keep his workers out of harm’s way. He said a production supervisor and a maintenance worker who live in the neighborhood became alarmed when fire broke out at the $30 million Midtown Corner affordable housing apartment complex that was under construction next door.

“The fire engine was just sitting there,” Wyrobek said, “but they wouldn’t do anything.”

[End]

Wyrobek said the decision to relocate from the radical leftist Democrat-run city has already been made and that there is nothing feckless Mayor Jacob Frey could say that would change his mind. Expect hundreds of other Minneapolis business owners to turn this first leak in the dam into a raging flood in the days and weeks to come.

That is all.

The Evening Wrap: Fudd Disarmed, CNN Fakes a Poll, DOJ Demands a Prince and More

From our “Leftists Destroy Everything They Touch” file… – The evil propagandists at HBO are doing a remake of the old Looney Tunes cartoons that I loved as a kid, and as soon as I heard that would be happening I knew they would find a way to ruin the greatest cartoon franchise in American history.

Sure enough, they did. At a rollout event last week, the PC police producing the coming atrocities announced that neither Elmer Fudd – whose character is a hunter – nor the gunfighter Yosemite Sam will have … wait for it … their GUNS. To make this even more of an utter and complete farcical enterprise, HBO’s social justice warrior spokesperson said that, instead of his trusty double-barrel shotgun, Elmer Fudd will carry a scythe. So I guess he’s going to spend his time harvesting wheat instead of hunting that wascally wabbit.

View image on Twitter

No word on what Yosemite Sam might be carrying, but I suppose we should all be happy if the producers don’t try to re-imagine him as a drag queen conducting story time hours at elementary schools in the Bronx.

Then again, who really cares, given the reality that, without the late, great Mel Blanc performing the voices of the characters, it’s all going to be unwatchable trash in any event.

About that “scary” CNN poll… – CNN today provides a textbook reason why no one should pay the slightest attention to any poll that is affiliated with any corrupt media outlet. This particular CNN poll claims to show Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Farty China Joe Biden with a 55-41 lead over President Donald Trump.

Scary, right?

Except that, when you look into the bowels of the poll, it has significantly over-sampled Democrats, under-sampled independents, and massively over-sampled “non-Hispanic minority voters” by almost 100%. Had this poll’s sample been appropriately structured to actually reflect the American public, it would likely have produced a result similar to the poll released today by Zogby Analytics.

That Zogby poll pegs the presidential race in a statistical tie at 46/46. It measures President Trump’s public approval rating at 48%, right in line with other non-media-outlet polls like Rasmussen and Gallup and HarrisX. Perhaps even more telling, Zogby finds that fully 53% of those surveyed agree that Democrat governors around the country are keeping their non-scientific shutdowns in place in order to try to damage the President’s re-election chances.

We’ve said this before and we’ll say it again: Any time you see a poll that is affiliated with any media operation, whether it’s CNN or Fox News or the Wall Street Journal or the Washington Post, that poll was not created to try to gauge real public sentiment on whatever its’ subject might be. Those polls are created for one reason only, which is to create “news” stories.

So, please stop  emailing and private messaging me to see what I think about the CNN and Fox polls. What I think is that you need to ignore them and focus on something real.

Photo op? What photo op? – I’m old enough to remember last Monday, when every Democrat, SJW, snowflake and corrupt reporter screamed to high heaven about the President holding a photo op. Obviously, that’s all been forgotten:

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 461 points to close at 27,572, and the NASDAQ set yet another all-time record high in heavy trading today.

Imagine what is going to happen once the Democrats finally give up on their failing Wuhan Virus-related lockdown strategy. It’s going to be absolutely glorious.

Speaking of the Wuhan Virus… – I kid you not, CNN ran a chyron this morning that read “Experts Fear Trump May Release Vaccine Too Early To Help Campaign.”  You don’t have to believe me – just look at the screen shot:

Image may contain: 2 people, text

Talk about giving the game away. Here we have CNN and some nitwit named Peter Hotez actually expressing fear that President Trump would not wait until after the damn election to release a vaccine should one be developed in the next few months. What kind of ghoul even has such a thought spring into his head, much less express it verbally on semi-national airport TV?

It truly boggles the mind.

Would have been nice for you to admit this in February. – But, of course, the WHO was too busy at that time trying to help China execute its cover up. That corrupt international organization admitted today that transmission of the Wuhan Virus by those who are not exhibiting any symptoms is “very rare.”

Oh. Maybe that explains why not one of the hundreds of people filmed 3 weeks ago having fun in a pool in Lake of the Ozarks has tested positive for the virus.

If you feel sick, get tested and stay home. If you have no symptoms, go live your damn life and stop listening to idiots like Gretchen Whitmer.

Dear DOJ:  Bill and Hillary Clinton are right up the road in Chappaqua. – In case you missed it, the DOJ officially notified the British Government that it needs to hand over Prince Andrew, a long-time associate of Jeffrey Epstein, for questioning in its ongoing investigation:

Look, I get why the Justice Department lawyers want to talk with Andrew, as he no doubt has gobs of information about Epstein’s illicit activities. But the question must be asked, why are Bill and Hillary Clinton, and other well-known close friends of Epstein (can you say Bloomberg?) seemingly getting a pass here?

The long-time relationship between Bill Clinton and Epstein has been public knowledge since late in Clinton’s own presidency, for crying out loud. Epstein was a man who ran a massive pedophilia human trafficking operation for 25 years, and Bill Clinton’s name is all over his private jet’s flight logs.

If the DOJ really is looking to bust Epstein’s pedophile ring, it would simply be unacceptable for the Clintons and other prominent Americans who spent years snuggling up to Epstein to get a pass.

And by the way, Epstein did not kill himself.

That is all.

Dear America: Don’t Comply With A Lie

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

The ides of March took us lurching toward tyranny with an obscene level of attempted government control over our lives, our businesses and even our personal relationships. The pretext for it all was a virus with a .4% fatality rate. as reported by the flawed CDC.

That statistic doesn’t reflect any of the widely reported pressure and financial incentives that were used to inflate the statistics and ramp up public fear. Medical professionals who have been elected to absolutely nothing still can’t agree on whether wearing masks in public is recommended let alone ought to be required. But most people continue to comply.

It’s not as though we aren’t already aware of how much Leftist politicians and un-elected bureaucrats have wanted to grow their own power in the form of growing government. Their policies have illustrated this repeatedly. The likelihood of any government official advocating or voting to relinquish their own power is like a highway toll with an expiration date. Both are as rare as hens teeth.

Then came the riots. The very same political “leaders” who demanded that we stay at home “for our own good”, incited and cheered massive protests that led to violence, destruction and even death.

Didn’t that once and for all, expose the farce of their lock downs, the cynical lie of their “concern and compassion” for the lives of law-abiding citizens, their property and the rule of law? They remain naked emperors, espousing the same false coronavirus narrative so they can continue to micromanage restaurants and all other public places. Yet, most people continue to comply.

What reasonable person still takes these demogogues and dictators seriously after the swarming crowds and wanton destruction of numerous once-great American cities–all of which are controlled by Democrats?

Despite the obvious fallacies and frauds of the coronavirus narrative, its subliminal seduction is still piped in to us from grocery store speakers, highway billboards and TV commercials. “Stay safe, Stay Home, Save a life!” -and most people continue to comply.

Even conservative people and conservative groups claim that they are somehow showing “respect” by wearing masks and accepting governmental control of their gatherings. How is it respectful to bow to what you know is a lie? Taking the path of least resistance today will lead to being prevented from resisting at all in the future.

Acquiescence to unconstitutional laws emboldens those in power. Think of it as the “Broken Windows Theory” in reverse. When citizens offer no push back and demand no accountability of lawless lawmakers, we can count on those lawmakers to impose even more severe and lawless laws in the future–and that’s precisely what they’ve done.

Why? Because most people continue to comply.

Sunday News Roundup: De-Fund the FBI, Frey gets Fried, and an Archbishop’s Message

Wait. This is our national A-team? – If you have watched any of the various FBI-themed TV shows in recent years, the image you see depicted is one of fit, drop-dead gorgeous and handsome young women and men with flowing locks, expensive tailored clothes, quick draws and no-nonsense personas who always get the bad guy in any situation. It is an image that the FBI itself has carefully nurtured over the decades – they’re brave, they’re heroic, they’re keen investigators who always get their man.

Revelations over the past several years of utter FBI ineptitude at stopping the acts of domestic terrorists they were fully aware of and were monitoring have destroyed the notion that the agency always gets its man. Revelations of the agency’s role in the still-growing Obamagate scandal shattered its image as an agency dedicated to anything resembling truth or justice. Over the past 24 hours, since photos of an entire squad of FBI agents taking a knee to Black Lives Matter protesters in Washington DC emerged, we now know beyond all doubt that the agency’s preferred visual image is completely false. What we see instead is this:

… a rag-tag group of ordinary, not particularly attractive boys and girls, many of whom have obviously spent too much time at the dessert station on the FBI buffet.

Like the parade of corrupt FBI directors we have been treated to throughout the agency’s entire history, any group of law enforcement officers who would bow before  a crowd that is almost certainly infiltrated with domestic terrorists is motivated not by any sense of justice and upholding the law, but rather by politics.

There is no question that reforms in the way our police departments and agencies work need to be implemented. Anyone who knows anything about the history of utterly corrupt police departments in many major cities – like Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, New Orleans, Detroit and St. Louis – understands that corruption and racial abuse in those departments has run rampant for many decades.

We have seen many calls to “de-fund” the police in recent days, a crazy notion that would leave millions of Americans helpless at the hands of criminal gangs. That “de-fund” effort of course targets local police departments, mainly in big, Democrat-run cities. But there are far more good cops than bad cops, and those good cops are vital to the lives and livelihoods of law-abiding people who live in crime-ridden neighborhoods.

However, there is one law enforcement agency that literally cries out today to be completely de-funded and rebuilt from the ground up under new leadership. That is the agency led today by a worthless, feckless and corrupt bureaucrat named Christopher Wray, the one that took a knee to domestic terrorists this weekend.

You want to “de-fund the police”? Start at the top.

Speaking of worthless and feckless bureaucrats… – Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey engaged in his own genuflecting to domestic terrorists scene on Saturday, thinking he’d be applauded for it. It didn’t quite work out that way for him:

It’s like Cerci Lannister’s walk of shame on Game of Thrones, only he thankfully remained fully clothed.

This guy is like Justin Trudeau’s less-attractive, less-effective little brother.

But you still can’t go to church. – These scenes happened all over the country, proving once and for all that the entire concept of “social distancing” is a bad joke that has no meaning:

And yes, even in Vegas:

All of these scenes and many more demonstrate conclusively that Americans are simply over the whole “social distancing” nonsense. Democrat mayors and governors who just 12 days ago were intent on keeping their cities and states locked down through Election Day on November 3 are going to have a real hard time putting this genie back in their political bottles.

News you won’t see reported on CNN or MSNBC. – On this Sunday, I will leave you with this powerful message, a letter written to President Donald Trump by archbishop Carlo Vigano, who clearly sees the true nature of the motivations behind the global protests we are now seeing. The letter is very long and can be read in full at this link.

Here is a key excerpt for those of you who are in a hurry:

In society, Mr. President, these two opposing realities co-exist as eternal enemies, just as God and Satan are eternal enemies. And it appears that the children of darkness – whom we may easily identify with the deep state which you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days – have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans. They seem to be so certain of already having everything under control that they have laid aside that circumspection that until now had at least partially concealed their true intentions. The investigations already under way will reveal the true responsibility of those who managed the Covid emergency not only in the area of health care but also in politics, the economy, and the media. We will probably find that in this colossal operation of social engineering there are people who have decided the fate of humanity, arrogating to themselves the right to act against the will of citizens and their representatives in the governments of nations.

We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances, because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could be condemned as an unjustified aggression against the population. The same thing is also happening in Europe, in perfect synchrony. It is quite clear that the use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with conviction. It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches.

For the first time, the United States has in you a President who courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and the right of citizens to freedom of worship. Your participation in the March for Life, and more recently your proclamation of the month of April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month, are actions that confirm which side you wish to fight on. And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons.

For this reason, I believe that the attack to which you were subjected after your visit to the National Shrine of Saint John Paul II is part of the orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction. And it is disconcerting that there are Bishops – such as those whom I recently denounced – who, by their words, prove that they are aligned on the opposing side. They are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches.

The American people are mature and have now understood how much the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters. However, it is important that the good – who are the majority – wake up from their sluggishness and do not accept being deceived by a minority of dishonest people with unavowable purposes. It is necessary that the good, the children of light, come together and make their voices heard. What more effective way is there to do this, Mr. President, than by prayer, asking the Lord to protect you, the United States, and all of humanity from this enormous attack of the Enemy? Before the power of prayer, the deceptions of the children of darkness will collapse, their plots will be revealed, their betrayal will be shown, their frightening power will end in nothing, brought to light and exposed for what it is: an infernal deception.

America Needs New “Experts” in Every Field

This week we witnessed the spectacle of so-called “expert” economists – men and women supposedly revered in their field – being humiliated by the Labor Department’s jobs report for May. These “experts” weren’t just wrong, they were more wrong than any group of experts in their field have ever been.

The consensus of those “experts” going into Friday was that the U.S. economy had shed more than 8 million jobs during the month of May and that the new rate of unemployment would approach 20%. They based that expectation on careful study and analysis, along with their collected wisdom gathered over years of experience in the field of economics.

Yet, when the numbers came in, it turned out that the phenomenal Trump economy had actually added jobs during May. And not just a few jobs, mind you, nor even a few thousand jobs. The economy added 2.51 million jobs in May, more than the U.S. economy had ever added in any month since records began to be kept. Rather than  rising up to 20%, the rate of unemployment in fact dropped dramatically to 13.3%.

Why did this happen? Part of it has to do with the fact that, over the past few months, the U.S. has been sailing in uncharted economic waters as it has dealt with it’s first-ever voluntarily self-imposed recession.The simple fact of the matter is that no one really knew going in how our or any other nation’s economy would react to the insane manner in which we have responded to this viral gift from China.

But the other part of it in the economic field is political bias among the economist community, at least those who are surveyed by the corrupt national news media, almost all of whom are leftist Democrats. Their bias is to assume that the Trump economic program will be disastrous, which is why these “experts” have been surprised by almost every monthly jobs report for the last 3-1/2 years. Their consensus projections have consistently underestimated the monthly jobs reports, just as they consistently overestimated pretty much every one during the 8 disastrous years of Barack Hussein Obama.

Obviously, our corrupt media establishment should be surveying a more diverse set of economists to make these “consensus” projections.

Equally obvious is our country’s need for a more expert group of medical “experts,” particularly when it comes to the field of control of communicable diseases. Literally every prediction made by the two “experts” upon whom President Trump relied during this response to the Wuhan Virus – Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx – has turned out to be just as spectacularly wrong as this week’s projection by our economic “experts.” These two doctors, along with the equally inept meatheads at the Centers for Disease Control, are mainly responsible for having put more than 30 million Americans out of work and for our nation’s school children’s likely loss of a full year of learning.

Just as the media needs to rely on a more diverse set of economic “experts,” our government needs to gather together a much more diverse set of medical “experts” the next time China sends a viral plague to our shores.

No group of “experts” has been more consistently surprise than those in the oil and gas field over the past few months. Just a month ago, there is not one single “expert” in that field who believed the price for a barrel of West Texas Intermediate would be anywhere above $20. Yet, there it sits today, right on the cusp of $40 months before any “expert” thought that might be possible.

Similarly, the “experts” in the field of “climate change” have been completely and consistently wrong about literally everything since that field of quasi-science was invented out of whole cloth in the 1980s. It was the biggest scam in world history until the whole “Russia Collusion” scam was devised by the Clinton campaign and the FBI in 2016.

The field of education literally cries out for new experts in every discipline and at every level. America’s public schools are just mills of mediocrity and its universities little more than operations of Marxist indoctrination, and have been for decades now.

America needs new experts, hopefully some real ones. The “experts” we rely on today are killing us.

The Evening Wrap: A Fake HCQ Study, New Religious Cults, and Ben Sasse Throws a Tantrum *UPDATED*

Hey, remember that Lancet study from a few weeks ago that claimed to show that Hydroxychloroquine was somehow deadly to Wuhan Virus patients? – Yeah, the study was a scam:

It turns out that the company that provided the “data” for the study doesn’t even exist, and that the report that Lancet – a “respected” medical journal – published was actually authored by a science fiction writer. I’m not kidding. Not even the greatest science fiction writer who ever lived could possibly make this stuff up.

It was all just another leftist scam to “get” Donald Trump.  The sad part of it is that people most likely died as a result of the chilling effect it had on doctors being willing to prescribe this safe, cheap and widely-used drug for patients it could have benefited. Despicable.

This is what a religious cult looks like:

Just sayin’.

Speaking of stuff you could never make up… – A couple of friends who are on a trip in Alaska right now sent me this photo today:

This is posted on a miles-long hiking trail that most likely doesn’t have 50 people on it today. There is literally not one shred of science or data that supports the notion that staying 6 feet from people in the wilds of Alaska makes even the tiniest difference, yet there it is.

This is also stuff that a religious cult adhering to nothing but dogma would do.

Burying the lede… – Ned Ryun was angry to see the news that Lindsey Graham had postponed today’s scheduled subpoena vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee after Nebraska RINO Ben Sasse threw a typical hissy fit:

However, if you go actually read that article by The Hill, you find this lede conveniently buried way down in the final two paragraphs:

Earlier Thursday, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee held its own vote to give subpoena power to Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) for that panel’s investigation into Obama-era actions including Crossfire Hurricane.

The vote allows Johnson to subpoena Comey, Rice and former CIA Director John Brennan, among others.

Oh.

See, it’s not all up to Senator Graham. This can all just as easily be exposed by the Homeland Security Committee, whose Chairman is a far more serious person and not nearly so obviously compromised.

***UPDATE*** – James Rosen is reporting now that Senate Judiciary met later this afternoon and voted along party lines to authorize Graham to issue the subpoenas:

Fun!

***UPDATE 2*** The normally astute Mr. Rosen was wrong. Sorry about that.

What, is the New York Times running itself as a day-care center now? – After all of his corrupt reporters tossed a mass meltdown on Twitter last night and his editors staged an open rebellion over the publication of an op/ed by Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton, New York Times Publisher A.G. Sulzberger felt the need to explain the basics of newspaper publishing to his herd of juvenile delinquents:

The op-ed page exists to offer views from across the spectrum, with a special focus on those that challenge the positions taken by our Editorial Board. We see that as a source of strength, allowing us to provide readers with a diversity of perspectives that is all too rare in modern media. We don’t publish just any argument — they need to be accurate, good faith explorations of the issues of the day — and there are many reasons why Op-Eds are denied publication. It is clear many believe this piece fell outside the realm of acceptability, representing dangerous commentary in an explosive moment that should not have found a home in The Times, even as a counterpoint to our own institutional view. I believe in the principle of openness to a range of opinions, even those we may disagree with, and this piece was published in that spirit. But it’s essential that we listen and to reflect on the concerns we’re hearing, as we would with any piece that is the subject of significant criticism.

[End]

Absolutely stunning that a newspaper publisher has to write something like this to a pack of people who presumably graduated from something called “journalism school.” And we wonder why journalism – real journalism – has become an anachronism in our country.

Speaking of the corrupt news media… – Remember how every fake media outlet in the nation went berserk over this video clip a couple of weeks ago, with many squealing that these people were all gonna get the Wuhan Virus and spread it all over the country?

There have been no new cases of the novel coronavirus among the hundreds who flouted social distancing guidelines and attended pool parties at Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks over Memorial Day weekend, a state health official said this week.

Videos and photos that showed hundreds of partygoers prompted health officials in the state to express concerns that the large gatherings would lead to a surge in cases of COVID-19. Those who attended were urged to self-quarantine and get tested, while officials in St. Louis County — Lake of the Ozarks is a popular getaway for people who live in St. Louis — later issued a travel advisory.

Overall, the statewide hospitalizations from the virus have decreased by more than 40 percent in recent weeks, while the state’s number of positive cases has also declined, Parson said during the briefing, per the newspaper.

“Our hospitals are not overwhelmed. Our positivity rate continues to decline. People are recovering, and we are moving forward,” he said.

[End]

Oh.

One final reminder. – In 2009 and 2010, Americans put in office a Black president, a black attorney general, Joe Biden as VP, and Democrats had super majorities in both houses of congress. During those years, and the six years that followed, there was no criminal justice reform; there was no prison reform; there was no police reform or any other effort to correct racial injustice.

What did they focus on instead? Nationalized healthcare and climate change.

Because they’re all Democrats, and they don’t mean a damn thing they’re saying today.

The Same Shade of Grey: Why Socialists are Threatened by Individuality

Guest Piece by Karen Kataline

FREEDOM OF THOUGHT AND FINDING ONE’S OWN PATH BRINGS RICHNESS, COLOR, AND GREATER PURPOSE TO LIFE.

Things seemed almost normal on our brief trip to South Dakota recently. My husband and I were practically giddy to escape the gloom and doom of points further south from which we came.

We never felt guilty for dining indoors at a restaurant on our anniversary. We enjoyed strolls through one-of-a-kind stores in Deadwood and Hill City that sell everything from Black Hills Gold to rhubarb wine.

In the freedom-sucking world of Socialism, joy is frowned upon and independence is considered to be selfish. The pressure to think collectively and act mindlessly doesn’t just apply to people, it applies to their businesses and everything else they create.

As we watch the next wave of attacks on America in the form of riots which again threaten innocent people of every race and creed, their safety, their businesses and their freedom, it’s not difficult to recognize the same collectivist stereotypes that are continually reinforced by the propaganda media.

The message is that we are all members of a collective, and our guilt or innocence is based on the ethnicity into which we were born or the group to which we belong. That’s a direct attack on the heart and soul of America and the principles on which it was founded.

Using the excuse of a virus which, even by reportedly inflated statistics from the CDC, is non-lethal for 99.6% of the population, they have imposed preposterous rules and paternalistic restrictions that are direct assaults on our most fundamental liberties. One moment, they claim this is all for our health and safety and “for our own good.” The next, they become apologists for rioters and vandals who are quite lethal to our health and safety. Apparently, they believe that is for our own good as well.

Through the pivoting narratives and the breathtaking contradictions, the only thing that is ever-present is the grey cloud of groupthink.

Our justice system is also under attack, as a fundamental principle on which it is based is the treasured idea that every person is unique, yet we all deserve due process and equal justice under the law. Jurors take an oath to examine the facts and evidence in the specific case with which they are presented. They are constantly admonished to set aside their own preconceived notions and biases.

Our current, media echo-chamber promotes precisely the opposite of this. Rioters are applauded not only for ignoring due process for the accused, but for indicting and convicting the innocent for sharing the same skin color as the accused. Democrat Governors and unelected bureaucrats hand down one-size-fits-all orders that ignore the unique characteristics of every state, county, municipality or unincorporated area.

Regardless of how contradictory or quickly the facts change, the message is always the same and it is getting ever louder. We must fall in line and believe what they tell us to believe. They march in lockstep and we are expected to do so as well.

Government control is essential for their beloved socialist dream, and they must propagate collectivism and denigrate individualism in order to achieve it.

For example, it is immaterial whether mass mask-wearing in public makes any sense whatsoever. In fact, it may be better for them if it doesn’t, as it allows them to easily distinguish between those who obey and those who do not. The next step is to isolate and bully those individualists until they can’t dine, travel or get a haircut without submitting to the state. They are on lockdown all over again.

Freedom of thought and finding one’s own path brings richness, color, and greater purpose to life. Otherwise, we are all the same dull shade of grey.

Such individualism used to be highly prized by liberals in the sixties, but that has been demolished along with our historical monuments and the valuable lessons learned from America’s past.

The labor, faith, and personal expressions of free thinking adults are among the greatest threats to socialists and the tyranny they inexplicably feel entitled to impose upon us.

No wonder small businesses and little souvenir shops in Deadwood, South Dakota are such a threat.

Larry Schweikart: From DemPanic to DemSaster

Guest Piece by America’s History Teacher, Larry Schweikart

Poor old Joe Biden (Demented Biteme, if you follow my Twitter nicknames at @larryschweikart). He already had a weak hand. Heck, he had a hand full of the Bicycle trademark cards it was so bad.

It just got worse.

Rioters (yes folks, it’s a riot when “protestors” burn buildings, hurt people, and chase police out of a precinct) in Minneapolis have now made Trump the “Law and Order” candidate while simultaneously giving him a platform to woo black voters even more. How does that work, you ask?

Trump had already sent the DOJ into the murder investigation of George Floyd before a single Auto Zone was torched. Indeed, not a single major conservative voice dissented from seeing Floyd’s murderer cop prosecuted. Rush Limbaugh called it mindless. “What policy is there anywhere that mandates that kind of treatment of a suspect or prisoner who is totally under control?” The cop simply killed the guy. “There’s no other way to describe what happened.”

President Trump likewise chimed in. “At my request, the FBI and the Department of Justice are already well into an investigation of the very sad and tragic death in Minnesota of George Floyd,” and he called for “this investigation to be expedited.” Believe me, if there is a determination that—as it seems—this was murder, Trump will make a White House announcement and look for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, as well as numerous other black leaders, to be present when he does so.

But not only will it be impossible for anyone except from the insane Blind Lemon Don (Don Lemon) or PsychoJoe Scarborough to try to blame Trump, he will be rightly seen as attempting to right a wrong, while at the same time Trump appears to be the only one also supporting the (often black-owned) businesses that are being torched.

This has deep roots in all lawful citizens’ psyche (not just whites’). It is the “Law and Order” moment, akin to what drove large numbers of voters to vote for Richard Nixon in 1968. Perhaps they did not like Tricky Dick, but they knew that the anarchy and lawlessness exploding throughout the country had to end.

Trump now is in a position unimagined just six months ago of attracting not just more black voters than in 2016, but possibly a lot more. Already multiple polls had him swinging between 16% and 22% black approval. However, in all polls, there is a growing number of blacks who “don’t know” or “don’t care” who wins. I submit that most of these do know and care, but they don’t want to say they won’t be voting Democrat. Some 5-8% may stay home in 2020, while Trump will gain at least an additional 3% over his 2016 levels. This means the real black “vote” for Trump will be about 11% plus another 2-4% (i.e., half of the stay-at-home, which equals a half-vote for each candidate). That would put Trump in the 13%–15% range.

But that was before Minneapolis. Remember in 1932 blacks did not vote for Franklin Roosevelt. It took four years of winning them over. The same, I suspect, is true for Trump. The 2020 election may be his “1936″ moment.

Is there other evidence for this? Absolutely.

The most important evidence comes from the low numbers of blacks who support Demented Biteme. One poll had the number at 84%, another at only 74%!! Now, before you say, “Schweikart, that’s a lot,” remember that in 2016 Hillary Clinton lost carrying 88% of the black vote. Please tell me how Biden wins carrying between 4 and 14% less.

The most interesting thing about the impending DemSaster is that it seems inevitable. They can’t replace Demented Biteme. (If they could, you would never see polls showing Biteme defeating Trump. Quite the contrary, they would show him as weak, and needing to be replaced). No matter who Biteme picks as his veep candidate, he’s finished. How do I know this?

Because no one wants to be his veep, even though most suspect they would be elevated to the POTUS job before Demented Biteme could locate his teeth. Even with that, no one wants to be associated with a sure loser.

Meanwhile, the country is opening up, the economy even looks like may roar back. Americans’ savings levels were 33% higher in March, as I predicted. (With stores and entertainment closed, there was nothing to spend money on). Once unleashed, Americans are going to go on a buying spree.

The DemPanic is over. The DemSaster is about to begin.

Saturday News Roundup: Trump Fires WHO, Russia Hoax Dead, Roberts Goes Rogue Again

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Trump to WHO: You’re Fired! – President Donald Trump, outraged at the role the WHO played in helping China’s communist government conceal the real nature of the Wuhan Virus for several months, took final action with that corrupt globalist organization on Friday, completely removing the United States from its membership:

“China has total control over the World Health Organization despite only paying $40 million per year compared to what the United States has been paying, which is approximately $450 million a year,” Trump said during a news conference in the White House Rose Garden.

“The world needs answers from China on the virus. We must have transparency. Why is it that China shut off infected people from Wuhan to all other parts of China?” he added. “It didn’t go to Beijing, it went nowhere else, but they allowed them to freely travel throughout the world, including Europe and the United States.”

Naturally, RINO limp-wrists like Lamar Alexander were upset and disturbed by the move, because of course they were.

But then, WHO cares what they think? (See what I did there?)

The Russia Hoax breathes its last, dying gasp. – Thanks to the efforts of Ric Grenell and new Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, the Russia Hoax is now in hospice care, breathing its last, desperate breaths.

As promised, DNI Ratcliffe released the full transcripts and FBI summaries of the various calls General Mike Flynn conducted with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 transition period. His action came after Grenell had fully declassified the documents early this week. The calls show exactly what we should have expected: An incoming National Security Advisor holding calls with his Russian counterpart and having preliminary discussions on areas of mutual interest between our two countries.

The December 29, 2016 call that the Obama Coup Cabal and its corrupt media support group have claimed to be so concerning turns out to be a big nothing burger. During that call, when Kislyak raises the likelihood of Russia responding to Obama’s earlier expulsion of dozens of Russian “diplomats”, i.e., spies, Flynn advises him exactly as John F. Kennedy advised Nikita Kruschev during the Cuban Missile Crisis: to avoid ‘going nuclear’, and to respond in a “reciprocal” manner.

Naturally, the corrupt news media that has spent the last 4 solid years pushing the Russia hoax is today trying to convince you all that Flynn’s reply here is some sort of treasonous act. That is, of course, utterly absurd.

There is nothing wrong with that call, and we now know with 100% certainty that the Obama Administration – including Obama himself – went after Flynn for the simple fact that Flynn knows where all the bodies are buried with relation to Obama’s efforts to prop up Iran. Those corrupt bastards sold their souls and our national security to the Islamic state, and they could not countenance having Flynn as Trump’s National Security Advisor.

The most poignant part of reading the transcripts is that we see Flynn and Kislyak discussing the very real areas of mutual interest the U.S. and Russia had at the time related to destroying ISIS, stabilizing Syria and dealing with the Iranian threat. By mounting the Russia hoax, the Obama Coup Cabal and its media support team threw all of that potential good away, making it impossible for the Trump Administration to truly engage with Russia on those matters, and making our nation less secure in the name of protecting Obama, John Kerry and everyone else involved in the Iran deal.

This must not go unpunished. The Russia Hoax is dead, and it is now time for William Barr and John Durham to start extracting some justice.

Meet John Roberts, the new Anthony Kennedy. – Just when Americans all over the country are getting ready to go back to church, Chief Justice John Roberts decides to side with the communists.

In a 5-4 decision late Friday evening, Roberts sided with the four “liberal” – as the corrupt media likes to call them – justices in upholding the draconian, science-devoid restrictions on religious freedom being imposed by California Governor Gavin Newsom. Here’s the key passage from the decision:

Although California’s guidelines place restrictions on
places of worship, those restrictions appear consistent with
the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. Similar
or more severe restrictions apply to comparable secular
gatherings, including lectures, concerts, movie showings,
spectator sports, and theatrical performances, where large
groups of people gather in close proximity for extended periods of time. And the Order exempts or treats more leniently only dissimilar activities, such as operating grocery
stores, banks, and laundromats, in which people neither
congregate in large groups nor remain in close proximity for
extended periods.

[End]

Thus does the majority of the U.S. Supreme Court uphold dramatic restrictions on the absolute freedom of religion guaranteed in the First Amendment by equating your church, synagogue, temple or mosque to the local Kiwanis Club.

If you are not outraged by this, I really don’t know what to say to you.
