Party Bloodbath: Four revellers ‘fighting
for life after being shot at Beverly
Hills mansion party held for NFL star’
Posted by Ribicon 8/4/2020 10:27:35 AM Post Reply
Four people are in a critical condition after being gunned down at a Los Angeles mansion party believed to have been held for an NFL player, says a report. A terrified partygoer filming as multiple shots rang out at the plush Beverly Crest pad said "a bunch of gangsters came in and robbed everybody and started shooting". The shooting occurred hours after cops were called to a gated community in Mulholland Drive, near Franklin Canyon Park, Officer Mike Lopez told Fox 11. Scores of people were attending—prompting a police callout at about 6.30pm because of the ban on large gatherings in Los Angeles County
Why George Washington Was ‘Better Than
His Era’ and a Great Businessman
Posted by Judy W. 8/4/2020 10:15:46 AM Post Reply
As mobs push to tear down statues of George Washington across the country, author John Berlau points out that the first president and revolutionary general was clearly better than the era he lived in. Berlau joined “The Right Side of History” to discuss his new book “George Washington Entrepreneur: How Our Founding Father’s Business Pursuits Changed America and the World.” Berlau is an award-winning journalist, columnist for Forbes and Newsmax, and a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Washington not only excelled as a military commander and political leader, but the book explains he was also America’s first true entrepreneur.
Oprah Winfrey says 'system of White

Billionaire Oprah Winfrey says it’s important for Americans to realize that “the system of White people” continues to keep Black citizens off “the ladder of success.” The media mogul made the comments July 31 on her Apple TV+ show “The Oprah Conversation,” which included former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho. Ms. Winfrey titled the episode “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man: Part 1,” in honor of the ex-athlete’s YouTube conversations under the same banner. “I’ve created this for you because in order to stand with us and people that look like me, you have to be educated on issues that pertain to me and

The plot to kill former Rep. Steve Stockman is unfolding before our eyes. Unjustly convicted of campaign finance violations (3 grand juries refused to indict him), imprisoned in a federal facility with a very high rate of COVID-19 infection, denied compassionate release despite serious comorbidities, Steve now is being denied medications that have been prescribed to him.Steve’s wife Patti emails: Steve is improved, though definitely still sick. However, the prison refuses to refill his long-standing prescription for Zinc and the hospital ER doctor prescription for Hydroxychloroquine!

On Monday, President Obama trotted out his highly awaited endorsement list of more than 100 Democrat down-ballot candidates, and based on the media's reaction, it's the holy grail for those Democrats. (snip)“Far left progressives Elizabeth Warren, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders and now Barack Obama have endorsed Ammar Campa-Najjar,” said the campaign of GOP opponent Darrell Issa, the former 49th District congressman. “And he wants us to believe he’s a conservative?” (Campa-Najjar doesn’t list endorsements by Warren, Ocasio-Cortez or Sanders on his campaign site.) Contacted for comment on the Issa team remark, Campa-Najjar didn’t take the bait.

In August 2019, Millie Weaver (aka Millennial Millie), went to a Trump rally in Cincinnati, Ohio. She carried with her a microphone emblazoned with Alex Jones’s InfoWars logo. Whatever one feels about InfoWars is irrelevant.

President Donald Trump’s campaign manager called Monday for more presidential debates, saying that they should begin earlier than planned.During an interview with “Fox & Friends” Monday morning, Bill Stepien said that the current debate schedule, which is set to begin Sept. 29, will prevent voters in early-voting states from seeing the two candidates go head-to-head before casting their ballots.“We want more debates, we want debates starting sooner,” Stepien, who took over as Trump’s campaign manager last month, said.“First debate is scheduled for Sept. 29, by that time 16 states already will have voted.
The Real Reason
Democrats are Pushing
for Mail-In Ballots
Posted by Magnante 8/4/2020 8:27:27 AM Post Reply
Mail-in ballots are the latest talking point for Democrats and their media allies. They claim this will keep voters safe from the Wuhan virus, even though it is burning itself out quite nicely on its own. (snip) The Postal Service will conveniently shut down, unable to deliver the ballots. If some post offices remain open, they will misplace or lose ballots. If ballots cannot be delivered, they cannot be counted. The election will not be decided, not on election night, not the next day, next week, next month.It will be a repeat of Al Gore’s hanging chad story, with lawsuits and Soros funded state and county officials unwilling to certify

As the November election draws near, one thing is becoming clearer by the day.The media is absolutely terrified by the idea of Joe Biden debating President Trump.

A bloody brawl broke out in Manhattan Beach after a couple confronted two men for not wearing masks, causing an argument that turned violent when the woman threw coffee into the face of one of the men. The brawl was all caught on video, recorded by James Hernandez’s bodycam, which he says he has to wear as a Trump supporter. “Because I wear a trump hat I’ve had a lot of confrontations, I guess,” he said.

On his way to a hearing last week, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler was in a car accident.Thankfully, the New York pol was unhurt. But the accident caused Mr. Nadler to be an hour late to the hearing.Watching Mr. Nadler during that hearing, which starred Attorney General William Barr, you might think he had hit his head in the accident.

One Swedish Model To Copy:
No More COVID-19 Lockdowns
Posted by PageTurner 8/4/2020 7:21:42 AM Post Reply
We’re getting an awful lot of very bad advice from public officials about how to handle the resurgent coronavirus pandemic. All of a sudden, we’re told, we must lock down the economy again, for our own good. Common sense and experience, it seems, have flown the coop. Just look at Sweden, which avoided a lockdown and slashed its daily COVID-19 death rate. Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank President Neel Kashkari is the latest to create a stir by saying he favored a “really hard” four-to-six week lockdown of the economy to get the virus under control and help the economy rebound
Biden’s Vice Presidential Angst replies

Would Vice President Biden’s search for a running mate have been so fraught if he hadn’t announced his plan to exclude male candidates from consideration? The thought occurs to us in the wake of the Washington Post’s story about Mr. Biden’s decision to delay by as much as two weeks the announcement of his choice and the ill-feeling among Democrats as jockeying for the position has intensified among the potential picks. “Even some longtime Biden allies worry that the process has become ‘messier than it should be,’ pitting women, especially Black women, against one another,” reports the Post’s Annie Linsky.
U.S. Plans to Build New
Arctic Icebreaker Fleet

A recent White House memo directs the Pentagon and other executive departments to provide a roadmap by early August for creating a security fleet of icebreaker ships, Fox News reported Monday. The move to acquire icebreaker ships signals Washington’s recognition of the Arctic and Antarctic regions' increasing geopolitical significance, as well as a willingness to stand up to China and Russia. The memo comes at a time when the United States has minimal strategic capabilities in the polar regions—there is not a single U.S. port in the Arctic capable of housing icebreaking ships.
The Biden Basement Strategy Backfires replies

Call it an unforced error — a potentially serious backfire. Over there at CNN, former Bill Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart outs the Democrats’ greatest fear: that Joe Biden will be a disaster in the scheduled presidential debates with President Trump. So Lockhart’s recommendation to Biden? Don’t debate. Lockhart’s stated reason for a Biden refusal to debate is, no kidding, this: Whatever you do, don’t debate Trump. Trump has now made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements according to the Washington Post. It’s a fool’s errand to enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules or the truth. Biden will undoubtedly take heat

Rep. Karen Bass, a top contender to become presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, appeared at Nation of Islam events, posed for a picture with a top Nation of Islam official, and attended a forum in 2013 hosted by the organization’s official mouthpiece. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has referred to Jewish people as “satanic,” blamed them for the Holocaust and the Sept. 11, 2011 terrorist attacks, and once praised Adolf Hitler as a “very great man.” Farrakhan has also denounced interracial marriage, which he said has “mongrelized” the black race.

I never understood why pro sports leagues thought that buying into a far-left, anti-American narrative would ingratiate them with their fans. At the moment, it looks like my skepticism (shared by many, of course) was justified. Breitbart reports: “Ratings crash for NBA, MLB after protest-filled debuts.” As the NBA and MLB return from their coronavirus-imposed hiatus, it appears TV viewers are not interested in what the increasingly woke leagues have to offer. With both baseball and basketball draped in all sorts of Black Lives Matter and social justice symbolism for their opening games,
Why Voting By Mail Imperils
Biden More Than Trump
Posted by MissMolly 8/4/2020 4:25:03 AM Post Reply
The Democrats are obviously committed to using the COVID-19 pandemic as the latest pretext for achieving their longtime goal of widespread voting by mail. They may, however, end up outsmarting themselves. The Democrats are so invested in their revisionist history concerning Bush v. Gore that they have forgotten why SCOTUS actually stopped the Florida recounts on December 12, 2000. That was the “safe harbor” date after which the state’s electors may not have been counted. Federal law requires that states must resolve post-election disputes (e.g. recounts) within thirty-five days after Election Day or risk disfranchising their voters. In 2000, that would have changed the outcome of the presidential election.

Get this: Democrats want to scrap this year’s presidential debates. It’s not hard to guess why. “Whatever you do,” CNN’s Joe Lockhart, who served as President Bill Clinton’s press secretary, advised Joe Biden last week, “don’t debate” President Trump. Dem strategist Zac Petkanas argues: “This is not a normal presidential election, and Trump is not a legitimate candidate” and so doesn’t deserve a debate. (Never mind that Trump won an overwhelming majority of electoral votes.)

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has a "bizarre" habit of bragging about arrests that never happened, Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Monday. "He’s dreamed of it and thought of it a great deal," Hemingway, senior editor of The Federalist, told host Tucker Carlson. "And he's had a lifetime of storytelling. I mean, I don't think he's the only politician out there to exaggerate or tell stories but he really is notable for this, and it was something that caused problems for him the first time he ran for president [in 1988] when that candidacy was derailed by his lies, his plagiarism."
Minneapolis’ Frey accuses Walz of

Mayor Jacob Frey, the Minneapolis Democrat who faced sharp criticism over his handling of the George Floyd riots in June, on Monday seemed to place much of the blame on Gov. Tim Walz, another Democrat, for failing to act quickly on early requests from the city for state intervention, a report said. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune published a detailed report that shed light on the interaction between the mayor's office and Walz in the early days of the protest. The governor's office made it clear that National Guard Troops were ready within 24 hours of the mayor's informal request, but Frey seems to be unconvinced

There is more than a whiff of desperation in the re-emergence of the thermonuclear bomb of hysterical rhetoric, that President Trump is just like (or even worse than!) Hitler. Never mind the absence of death camps — the very fact that his enemies are free to employ the most irresponsible and vile language against him without disappearing in the dead of night refutes the charge. Yet we have taxpayer-funded PBS and NPR pushing the comparison hard ("Trump is the most dangerous figure in human history"), and, on the same weekend, the man who handed the Democrats' nomination to Biden
