COVID-19 turning out to be
huge hoax perpetrated by media

Original Article

When the postmortem is done on the media’s coverage of COVID-19 (and it will be), it will be clear that the virus was no Black Plague — it’s not even the flu on a bad year. SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, has killed 56,749 Americans as of Tuesday. That’s not good. But it’s not as bad as the 2017-2018 flu season, when 80,000 -plus perished. And it’s a long cry from what all the experts were warning about just a few weeks ago: First, they predicted 1.7 million Americans dead; then they redid the models (this time apparently entering a few more “facts”) and said 100,000-240,000 dead.

Well said. This should be a must read. But I truly think it was not just media, it also included the democrat party. Look what the democrat governors are doing to their state's economy and extreme lockdown with no end in sight.

Good to know that I was thinking along the right lines all along. The media, the globalists and the leftists perpetrated the greatest con job on the world since Anthropogenic Global Warming/Climate Change. It was a giant concerted plan and they have been very successful after spending over a century classically conditioning of the public and making the masses more easily manipulated and controlled. I don't understand why we have allowed them to get so strong and influential but I hope this situation will become a revelation to many and we start taking our lives back.

Comparing the virus panic to the climate change alarmism seemed facile but the parallels continue to emerge. It turns out the virus panic was climate alarmism on 10x speed. We're still acting on 'models,' we're still expected to treat experts as gods, governors as emperors, fatuous 'orders' as law, a virus as an existential threat to all of humanity instead of what it is: a seasonal bug targeting the most vulnerable. Politicians and media have been feasting on the public's undivided attention. Society and commerce didn't shut down during WWII, they were focused on the war effort. Entities such as education that typically throw in with politicians and media will find that they've sacrificed much more than two idle months. They will have a gaping hole in their finances, they will find that their enrollment and tuition drop off perhaps never to return. Sports leagues succumbed to the 3rd grade shrieking - ridiculous considering the youth and top conditioning of athletes. Ironically the media, whose news divisions sowed panic, will suffer greatly as entertainment productions and sporting events shut down giving them nothing to broadcast.

This has been an orchestrated scam by the Democrats and the media to destroy the Trump economy, and it has worked. I knew it was a scam when I saw Yahoo add an icon to the top of their menu entitled coronavirus in mid March. I thought we had turned back socialism for the first time. Now all that has been reversed and we have more socialism than ever before, including more spending than ever in history, and the highest degree of tyranny in the history of our republic. It hasn't only been Democrats and the media, it is also the large corporations that now have embraced more tyranny in their workplaces than is bearable by any free person. The left has succeeded in making life so miserable that it better to just stay in bed in the morning. Retail is going to have a hard time getting anybody back into their stores because they now have a shopping experience that makes people want to stay home and order online.

The media will not be held accountable. Unfortunately their 1st Amendment rights include the right to lie, obfuscate, and distort the truth with impunity. And fortunately they have far less ability to control the public than they had back in my parents day when whatever Walter Cronkite said must be true. I believe Trump got suckered into this by the political CDC with the help of the deep state bureaucracy. I hope he is starting to see the light.

Yes, #7. I checked the CDC website last night and the number was 37,308. They must have been forced to eliminate all of the “deaths with Covid19” and kept only the “deaths from Covid19”. We’ve all seen it - 85 years old, history of blood clots, killed by a stroke but tested positive for C19. Listed as having died from C19. Meanwhile, the number of flu/pneumonia related deaths is over 83,000.

And I don’t think America will ever admit it. The millions who fell for it, and basically enjoyed the hype and drama, will never admit that they have been played for fools. The media won’t admit it. The Democrats won’t admit it. And as big a Trump fan as I am, the president won’t admit it. He should have known from the get-go that this thing was a scam.

Let’s not be so hard on ourselves. Experts proclaimed everyday the almost inescapable virility and morbidity of this pathogen. The media parroted as only they can the grave danger this virus presented to us. It was all we heard and we listened because we never conceived that anyone would ever use a pandemic for political purposes, but here we are several months down the road locked down, unemployed, financially strapped, with a lot of time on our hands to listen to those same experts and really think about what they are saying. We did research as best we could. We listened to other experts who were making a different case for handling this pandemic and as we listened we realized that something was not right here. There could be a different way to handle this crisis. About this time the democrat governors and mayors around the country were continuing to make the most absurd and oppressive edicts. We were treated like children. The rules made no sense. They were capricious and annoying but the politicians were sure they knew better than the rest of us. Wear masks, don’t wear masks. Wear gloves, don’t wear gloves. Go outside, don’t go outside. We were all confused and it only got worse until the many of us figured it out. We were being played and it looked like the same devious harbingers of death and destruction had an agenda. Then that’s when the American people had had enough. They started making noise and protesting and for good reason. These arbitrary rules were devastating our families, the economy and most of all our freedom. Although this tyranny is not over by a long shot, Americans are waking up to the realization that a large swath of the population and especially the democrat party are totalitarians. We have seen them step on our necks because they seized the authority to do so, but by what right? Pushback is desperately needed. I am appalled by some in law enforcement who followed orders in direct opposition to the rights we enjoy under the Constitution. How could they hassle a teen on a paddle board all by himself, a mother on a playground, church goers who were gathered in their cars for a Sunday service, or a couple on the beach? How could this happen in America? The experts we found out weren’t so expert. The media were dishonest when it was imperative that they be truthful with their facts. Numbers were skewed. Models were wrong. Americans were lied to, manipulated and oppressed. Now we know what some in our country are capable of and we will not go quietly and passively anymore. We will resist. This is not over by a long shot but we are awake and pushing back. Never for a moment believe that freedom will always be ours. It is fragile and must be defended and Americans are starting to fight back and we will win. We also will never go along with something like this again. They played us once, now it’s our turn to demand our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness be returned to us.

FTA - "The media has been hyping COVID-19 since Day One, alarming Americans to the point where they voluntarily went along with shutting down the entire economy — a mistake that will likely reverberate for a decade or more." Another reason why the msm should have been boycotted and destroyed long ago. This time, Americans drank the cool aid en masse and will unfortunately now pay a painful financial price for being told what to think instead of learning how to think. In the People's Republic of Colorado, the Denver msm should be lined up and tarred and feathered immediately for inciting mass panic. We should consider what this latest dose of socialism and accompanying group think has brought us - misery, unhappiness, financial distress, state control, and forced obeyance to a very evil deep state. And all that was needed here was some common sense. Wash your hands, cover your mouth when you sneeze, stay home when you feel sick. This is all we had to do. But, we let the dims and msm exploit their TDS using this virus as cover in a last ditch effort to destroy the President and bring over 60 million American to their knees financially while expressing adoration for the Chicoms for causing the crisis.

Hospitals are empty and furloughing employees. It's no surprise that every patient they see gets diagnosed as a CV victim. THEY GET PAID MORE TO TREAT THEM! A lot more. And if they go on a ventilator, much..much.. more. My point is, that the ridiculously low numbers, are skewed even more by dubious billing practices. I used to work on the business side of a hospital and the Chief of Staff, who was a Cardiologist, who also owned a Chili parlor chain, was convicted and actually went to jail. More specifically, he and his brother alternated the jailtime, so one could stay out and run the businesses. (how do you swing that BTW..another issue) They had other businesses. One was a Cardiac Rehabilitation Center. Every visit a patient made to rehab after a surgery was billed as a heart procedure. And since the billing code was right, they were paid. A lot! Until they went to jail that is. Prescription drugs are another major issue in this area. Hydroxychloroquine has 'anecdotally' (great word) been shown to be north of 95% effective against the CV. It;s off patent however, and sells for peanuts compared to Redesivir which sells for $1000 a pill! Who advertises on all media again? We are being scammed about 5 different ways.

Between the Stay-At-Home Nazis and the daily media body count, people are staying hunkered down. My business was just given “permission” to open back up, but a number of my clients are too afraid to come back. There seems to be some magic July date that they are waiting for, as if small businesses can just ride out the storm until the public feels comfortable. I am so angry at the perpetrators of this hysteria. People are absolutely wedded to their fear, which, I suppose, was the point all along. So many of us need to get back to work, and are ready to do just that, but are at a loss without customers.

“Health records from 5,700 patients hospitalized within the Northwell Health system... showed that 94 percent of patients had more than one disease other than COVID-19, according to the Journal of the American Medical Association,” FOX NEWS reported. (caps mine) Will the so-called ''media'' pay a price for their lies? NO! Why? Because THEY control what people listen to and watch. That little snippet above is Fox News, think you'll ever hear anything like that from these lying, Trump-hating, America-hating, Freedom-hating disgusting socialist pigs in the MSM? NO, you won't.

That's exactly why they've earned the name, "enemedia." And boy have they pulled out all the stops on this hoax. The fake numbers. No details and no comparisons on those numbers. The WW-size headlines and incessant but irrelevant BREAKING NEWS crawls. The pictures of hospital chaos, ALL from New York City where chaos is the normal mode. OK, some of the pictures are from Italy pretending to be from NYC. And the almost daily contradictions from Dr. StrangeFlu and Dr. Scarf. If I see one more "Stay Strong" public service announcement on these commie fake news networks, I'm going to start making "Stay Stupid" masks and wear them across my forehead to Costco.

If I was interested in a one world government based on socialism/communism, I would want to kill off anyone who had a memory or the clod war and the evils of communism. I would want to have the very young untouched to grow up under lock-downs and state control. I would want a generation of pleasure seeking compliant anti-nationalists to be largely unscathed. It's almost like manipulating a virus to selectively kill those who would be against a totalitarian one world government would be something that would be part of some larger plan.

Bad Flu! I see an attempted economic coup d'etat and of course led by the media and is the cure worse than the disease? Certainly is and I see politicians from the side of the Democrats stretching this out and their Wards of the State bowing down to them! Indian Health Service in my area put out a psa proclaiming that they work for me and I work for them by staying home and that made me cringe! They forget, that I am essential too!

If the CDC says it's 30,000 plus, that means the numbers are probably even less. They're slowly adjusting the numbers down to get to the real number without a more drastic drop. Let's not forget Republican governors went along with this too. And, the White House. We've opened Pandora's Box; now let's see what each side does with it. We gave them way too much time to come through this time; will people who fell for it this time, fall in line so easily the next time? How militant will they get, if they don't? Will governors who did the least to go along this time, not bother the next time and be brave enough to say so? How many businesses will refuse to shut down while government continues roaring on? It will be interesting.

I have been posting all along - - much to the chagrin and consternation of my fellow L-Dotters - - that Trump has sadly been a chump. He not only swallowed the hysteria regarding the virus - - but even worse - - much worse - - he also bought into the leftist canard that only Big Government can save the economy. His approval of the bailouts, subsidies, and "stimuli" were misjudgments which will haunt us for decades. These were horrible blunders by a man who otherwise has been brilliant. It is hard to believe that our wonderful President Trump has been such a fool - - but there you have it. The facts cannot be denied. We must still fervently support him politically - - but the bloom is off the rose. He did something monumentally stupid.

I was doing fine before this hoax and was suspicious about the body count which now may never be proven it's been boiler plated by the CDC. This was all done to harm President Trump the most hated man to the globalist. This is going to right itself but the results will be different on the other side of this and possibly for the good. Scared people will stay scared and busy people will get busy and President Trump will get his revenge on the other side of this. In the mean time Nazi governors better enjoy the power because they will have to answer for this. In the state I live in two stupid cities decide our elections and award buffoons like Obama and Hillary Clinton our electoral votes.

The propaganda machine that is running 24/7 at full rpm is just a little too obvious. What other virus in history brought you daily pictures of the ugly little virus? What other virus brought you daily briefings that broke into normal programming like it was an imminent tornado approaching? Why the daily pictures of citizens obediently wearing useless little masks? Why are medical bureaucrats like Fauci and Birx allowed to shut down the country. I can see why everybody paid attention when the first batch of made-up raw data was presented but the semi-accurate accurate numbers we are seeing now do not justifify shutting down lemonade stands or puppet shows. At least we are going to get rid of some really bad governors but at what price? Coming on the heels of Russia-Russia and Ukrainegate and months before the most important election in our future is way beyond coincidence.

If only the media would pay the price for their lying and hyping of this flu. How could they pay a price? It is they who will report on this travesty. But they won't. It might, and I say it MIGHT be FOX, but any reporting by the media on what Fox might say will immediately be dismissed as partisan. No, the media will not pay the price. But, they will switch on a dime when the truth about this overblown flu comes out and blame Trump. Just watch. He will be blamed for overreacting and shutting down the country and ruining people's lives and just in time for the election. Look how the Democrats lie and the media lie about Trump not acting soon enough. He was the only one that did and now they are saying he didn't. And they are making that into a drum beat. What we truly have learned from this experience is how easily the masses can be duped and indoctrinated into giving up their liberty because they have been told to fear for their lives when no real threat exists for the majority. The big question is, where will we be a year from now?

Huge HOAX? No, you got it all wrong, Mr. Curl. Here's how it is: The Chinese launched this virus like a Fu Manchu plot against the West, the yellow race to dominate a decimated world. The fellow-traveler globalists saw it was an avenue to reduce the surplus, unproductive population, and drive the rest to surrender to government control for their lives. So, the Chinese arranged to fly out thousands of infected individuals to the developed world to spread the virus before they announced it had been unleashed in Wuhan and beyond, leaving the streets lined with corpses and the smoke of cremations hanging over the countryside. The video was seen worldwide, the fear ignited. American heath officials and statisticians used models run with numbers provided by the Chinese and WHO...all false...which led to grossly high, catastrophic mortality rates. They ran to the politicians, who recognized a crisis in the making, one not to be wasted. They could tie everything imaginable to it, especially if public hysteria could be induced. From shutdowns to spending TRILLIONS, government did its job. There was no stopping the juggernaut. We were at war! And everyone who went along was a patriotic and humanitarian HERO! So, Americans "flattened the curve" by self-quarantine and masking, which blunted the projections, turning them back to more than reasonable proportions. But the people still demand protection from COVIDS...and here we are...and then there's the threat of a second wave, the real grim reaper's arrival, not to mention things like famine due to broken supply chains, unplanted crops, unmanned processing plants... No, it's not the models that were wrong...but the American HEROES who blunted the initial threat. Yay, US!

I don't think the media and "experts" will pay for their hoax. When it comes to light that the death toll is far less than predicted they will proclaim "See, our extreme measures saved countless lives!" They will pat themselves on the back and prepare for the next power-grabbing emergency, using COVID-19 as their playbook.

I expect the media to go back to their usual play, when they know they're wrong. They'll double down on the "danger", and they know that deep staters at CDC will find enough "deaths" to prove they weren't wrong. CDC also has a vested interest in doing that. We see what's going on around us (how many Covid deaths do you know? I'm at 0), and their credibility, along with many federal agencies, are now shot.

Some nice points, but there are some simple questions to answer before we go off speculating: 1. What is the actual infection rate. This can be found by 5-10 controlled antibody experiments around the US. Why have these experiments not been done? They could even be done passively on blood donors. This information should be in the public domain. 2. There should be better transmission studies. The “models” we hear about in the news are not backed up with actual results or compared to known transmission results for other diseases. 3. Where are the studies in public policy across countries? Why is this information not put into the public domain before public policy decisions are made? Well, until then, there is a very simple public policy model published at Info-Theory that has been so far accurate for the last month. It is a bit depressing, but then again, it doesn’t assume facts not in evidence.

BTW, I doubt the current mask-wearing phenomenon will go on for the next 3-4 months. So by August, we should know by individual experience if we have grossly overreacted. Of course, by then, we will be hearing that COVID is seasonal so the hysteria can go on through the election. Anything political should be suspect out of an abundance of caution.

The news has become unwatchable. It is no longer news. It is being tailored to do three things: - Scare people. - Attack President Trump. - Attack state level Republicans It is propaganda. The Democrats and their media sycophants engineered this. They used a pandemic to influence elections at all levels. They lined up 'experts' to predict doomsday. Most people fell for it. We're supposed to believe the experts after all. The amount of pressure put to bear on the general public and Republican law makers has been unprecedented. The result is everyone went along with stay at home orders and social distancing. What else could they do? The only good news is time's on our side. The doomsday predictions were wrong, and people want to leave their homes and go back to work. What will the big government tyrants try next? Cancel elections? This is far from over. They are still trying to scare people.

Remember the so-called mainstream (liberal) media is almost all based in New York City and their so-called reporting is New York City and New England liberal Democrat centric, that is foreign and irrelevant to the so-called “Flyover States” excepting a couple of liberal States, all the way out to the West Coast.

Do not forget the horrible projections and advice of our "scientific experts." In the early days, they parroted the WHO. Later they project the death rate to be over 30 times the actual death and wanted the country locked down for 6 or more months. The MSM ran with the early CDC projects and some are still using super high, outdated death projections.

There is no question that this has been a serious disease in the NYC metro area. And "escaping" New Yorkers have spread this disease far and wide, too. I am becoming more doubtful that much of the rest of the country, the low density "fly over" country needed to have the kind of things that do make sense in a tightly packed, commuter train dependent, subway dependent 'ant farm' like the NYC metro area. My bet is that a common question of political candidtates will be "will you ever do this sort of lock down for a future disease?", and it will cost a candidate a lot of votes if the answer is anything but a clear "Never!".

Trish Regan got it right from the beginning: CCP virus is another attempt to remove President Trump. Globalists are unforgiving and Fox (Paul Ryan) fired Trish for telling the truth. Science is the big loser here. It is just a bunch of augurs playing with models that predicted 2 million Americans dead. The Bill Gates models were as wrong as Al Gore’s. This is not scientific, they change them every day as they wish. All research except for Covid has been closed down at the NIH and all university campuses. No explanation for why the CCP virus has 4 insertions of HIV sequences in the receptor binding domain. Was this an AIDS vaccine attempt that acquired human to human transmission? Will CCP virus give immunity to AIDS? It seems science is a bunch of guys making adjustments to numbers and making vaccines that may not work since we never had a vaccine for colds. Even the flu vaccine is not so hot. Many, if not most of the deaths on New York are from other causes, not Coronavirus. It is just that Medicare and Medicaid pay more for Corona death, especially with ventilator death machines. The death rates are a gigantic lie because many corpses have never been tested. Hospitals were not overrun, in fact they are deserted because no one wants to go into one. They never established Chinese virus only hospitals so the others could proceed normally. Cuomo sent convalescent Corona secreting patients into old peoples homes. After 2 months of no medical procedures thousands will die of cancer, stroke, arrhythmias, and other things went untreated a bit too long. With the best beaches and State Parks, California Governor Newsom, Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, enforces no fresh air exposure. It is now Springtime, everything is in bloom and this virus is spent simply because sunshine eliminates it. The Globalist Democrats, Marxists, Global Warmists, Googles, Facebooks, Microsofts, Rothschilds, Deep Staters, and Chinese Communist Party have given US a big November 3rd challenge. With freedom we shall overcome once again and make America great again again. This sad episode is but a bad case of the Chinese flu.

Someone said that the cure to the Chinese Bio-war was to destroy the corporate headquarters of the three major networks. I am not sure that would work, but these are desperate times and we should seriously consider leveling at least 3 or more buildings, just to be sure. Seems like a small price to pay for the security of all Americans and it would be an inspiration to many. Crazy, but not nearly as crazy as instantly making almost all Americans unemployed and forcing them to wear useless face masks.

It’s the Y2K panic all over again, but this time you don’t end up with a generator. TN has had 10 times more deaths from the flu than the Chinese Virus. Killing the economy and placing free people under house arrest has failed to dramatically reduce the spread of the flu, so it’s reasonable to conclude that lock-down has been equally ineffective on Covid-19. We would have been right about here regardless.

Even the CDC cannot all agree on including 23,000 "presumption" of China virus deaths with no serology. The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) website for the coronavirus lists the total deaths from COVID-19 – the disease caused by the virus – as 37,308 in the United States. That’s a much lower number than what has been reported in the media or by other coronavirus trackers. For example, the Johns Hopkins University coronavirus tracker, lists the number of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. at 65,645. Even more confusing, a separate CDC website – dedicated exclusively to the novel coronavirus – lists the total COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. as 64,283. The NCHS website was updated on May 1, while the CDC’s coronavirus-specific website says it was updated on May 2. The discrepancy seems to be an issue of how the data relating to deaths was coded at the state level, that is, what the cause of death on a death certificate says. The NCHS website lists 37,308 total deaths from death certificates listing COVID-19 as the cause, which includes COVID-19 as the presumed cause of death. The CDC gives some explanation why the NCHS data may be different from other reported numbers (emphasis original).

Now that efforts to suppress the virus are successful people are saying it was never a danger. It's stupid. It was spreading at a rate of 35% a day in March. If you don't realize that's a danger you're a fool. Conservatives have not covered themselves with glory here.

I'm wondering if the demographics of who died from this virus will ever be made public. It appears that if one was in a nursing home, it was a death sentence. Just in my county, there are about 130 cases of coronavirus, and more than 90 of those cases are people in nursing homes.

On limited funds, but I will be the first in line to get a haircut.

The most appalling thing to me-- I know I shouldn't be shocked but yet I continue to be-- is the blatant war on free speech. I posted stats for average flu deaths vs Covid deaths for Ohio counties on a local FB page and nearly got lynched: 'irresponsible,' 'dangerous' for posting 'misleading' date, info should be removed immediately, yadda, yardage, yadda.

America is suffering through a pandemic, riots, a violent crime wave, a recession and record unemployment, but Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Queens-Bronx) wasted an hour of the nation’s time on feigned outrage in Congress over an alleged insult she didn’t even hear. Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) denies calling her a “f–king bitch,” a claim for which she offers no evidence, apart from the hearsay of a reporter from The Hill who claimed, in any case, that Yoho did not direct those words to AOC.

Rudyard Kipling’s poem “If” is a father’s lesson to his son on how to be a man. It begins, “If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you…” That seems to be a pretty good description of conservatives’ situation this miserable year. Keeping our heads when others are losing theirs is the opposite of being complacent: it requires action. The best medicine to cure our nation of what ails it this year is in two parts. First is a vaccine proven effective against the Kung Flu. Second, is a large dose of conservative anger. Conservatives are — and should be —

Adam Milne, the owner of Old Town Pizza & Brewing, realized he had to shut down his flagship Portland taproom on July 9 after the business closed out the day with just $18.75 in sales. As he walked through downtown and saw the boarded-up storefronts and empty streets that day, it was hard for Milne to envision customers returning to his restaurant anytime soon. He knew he couldn’t keep bleeding money by keeping the taproom open. “I think all restaurants are really hurting and struggling, but I’m not sure if the city and state officials realize that to be a restaurant and

In the past three months the outlook for the U.S. economy has improved in the eyes of business economists. However, the optimism is couched somewhat by the resurgence of the coronavirus. A National Association for Business Economics survey released Monday finds a “significant snap-back in expectations from the depths reached across nearly all categories in April,’’ according to Megan Greene, a senior fellow at Harvard who leads the NABE's survey of business conditions. The results of the survey of 104 NABE members showed that expectations for growth had brightened considerably, with two-thirds of them forecasting that the economy, as measured by the gross domestic product, will grow

Police in Portland responded to reports of gunfire near the protest site and took two individuals into custody, according to a report. The Oregonian reported that authorities responded to reports of gunfire in downtown Portland and an apparent victim was treated at a hospital after being taken there in a private vehicle. The report pointed out that it was not immediately clear if the shooting was related to the protest, which marked its 60th consecutive night in the city. "As police were securing the scene a person arrived at a hospital by private vehicle with an apparent gunshot wound, non-life-threatening," police said in a statement.

Congressional Republicans and the Trump administration have spent the past few months putting off another round of coronavirus relief. Watching and waiting made some sense, given the fluidity of our condition, but it now leaves them with little time to reach a common position and then negotiate an acceptable outcome with the Democrats. Senate Republicans have made a good start by ditching two bad ideas. One is President Trump’s demand for a big reduction in the payroll tax. Under the right circumstances, cutting that tax would be a very good idea. It does not, however, fit the needs of the moment very well. The millions who are out of work

Solving America’s race-related problems is hard. So hard that nobody really has any clue how to do it. Burning down an auto-parts store isn’t going to help. But forcing people to attend reeducation seminars also seems unlikely to work. Just as we spend more time watching TV than training for marathons, we lapse into doing what’s easy. And what’s easy, when it comes to race, is pretending to be outraged about commonly used words. Trying desperately not to get canceled, bosses are trying to think ahead about what words might create a fake Duraflame firestorm of anger, and preemptively ruling ordinary words out of bounds.

“Cancel culture” is a double entendre of the dangerous kind. It is not just about canceling individuals or entities who offend leftist activists and their myopic group of minions, it is about fundamentally canceling America. The rabid left is actively rewriting American history as being inherently bad from the start, as it has no excuse to change our culture if there is anything arguably good about it. Therefore, our values, historical narrative, monuments and anything that makes us uniquely American must be disparaged and destroyed. Tyrants throughout history have practiced cancel culture by forcibly suppressing opposition to their authoritarianism with methods similar to what the American left is using today.

We’ve spent plenty of time over the past month or two looking at the seemingly endless series of riots consuming many of the nation’s larger cities. While the violence, injuries, assaults and even deaths capture many of the headlines, the staggering amount of property damage taking place is also a part of the equation. The question is, what do these cities do in the aftermath when downtown storefront windows have all been replaced with graffiti-covered plywood sheets, walls and roads are festooned with paint and lights, statues and other public property has been destroyed? That’s a problem that the City of Denver

The English department at a public university declared that proper English grammar is racist. Rutgers University's English department will change its standards of English instruction in an effort to "stand with and respond" to the Black Lives Matter movement. In an email written by department chairwoman Rebecca Walkowitz, the Graduate Writing Program will emphasize "social justice" and "critical grammar." Walkowitz said the department would respond to recent events with "workshops on social justice and writing," "increasing focus on graduate student life," and "incorporating ‘critical grammar' into our pedagogy." The "critical grammar" approach challenges the standard academic form of the English language in favor of a more inclusive writing experience.

Olivia de Havilland, classic star of Hollywood and two-time winner of the Academy Award for Best Actress, died peacefully in her sleep at her home in Paris, France on Saturday. She was 104. De Havilland built her legacy — one of strong, beguiling characters in difficult circumstances — with her own hands. She rose to prominence in the 1930s as Errol Flynn’s imperiled lass in a series of swashbuckling adventure films like Captain Blood and The Adventures of Robin Hood. Typically, she’d be bound up and carried away, only to be saved by the hero and ensnared once more in the ties of matrimony.

What accounts for the frenzied shift to hysterical language among leftists when attempting to demean the president every time they open their mouths? That is an easy question; they know that Biden is a pathetic loser and that Trump is going to defeat him handily in November. Sure, the constant din of their hateful slings and arrows may have done some damage, but not nearly enough for him to lose the election, and the Democrats know it. Thus, we hear terms like "storm troopers," "militia," "private troops," and other nonsensical language to describe Trump's light-touch attempts at rescuing those Democrat-run cities

The dramatic increase of COVID-19 cases in the states of Texas, Florida, Arizona, and California this summer has many scratching their heads. The summer months were supposed to slow infections due to activities taking place outdoors and more in-home ventilation, such as windows being opened up. This hypothesis has thus far proved true in many northern states — most dramatically New York — while the South has fared much worse. There are a few possible explanations for the South’s infection spike. The first is that a widespread lack of mask-wearing is causing these increases. The national media have been quick to note that Republican governors such as Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis
