A just-enacted San Antonio City Council resolution provides, in relevant part (emphasis added): WHEREAS, COVID-19 is a public health issue, not a racial, religious or ethnic one, and the deliberate use of terms such as "Chinese virus" or "Kung Fu virus" to describe COVID-19 only encourages hate crimes and incidents against Asians and further spreads misinformation at a time when communities should be working together to get through this crisis; and WHEREAS, the Jewish community has been targeted with blame, hate, antisemitic tropes and conspiracy theories about their creating, spreading and profiting from COVID-19; and WHEREAS, to target and stigmatize specific communities for the COVID-19 outbreak and world- wide spread creates

It's the China fru. Whereas the city of SA is racist ignorant and has no sense of humor it is so ordered that they shall be ignored and publicly joked about until a vaccine is available.

You would think that the San Antonio City Council would be spending their time taking care of the city of San Antonio instead of worrying about how the COVID-19 virus will impact China’s future standing in the world. Looks like the city council there is just furthering Communist Chinese propaganda.

Anyone who submits to these tyrants deserves the treatment they get. It is becoming very clear that there is only one way to deal with this attack on fundamental freedoms. Well, maybe a couple of ways, but if we don't stop this history has a pretty clear record of where they go next.

Excellent post, #8. These are the same people who like to claim science. And yet, the truth eludes them, over and over again. I suppose it doesn't disturb them that the Chinese Communist regime persecutes minorities including the Uighurs and Christians and anyone who should dare to QUESTION the authorities or SPEAK OUT against them or speak WITHOUT PERMISSION. Way too many Americans are stupefying dense, naïve, childish. They hurl invectives against their fellow citizens because they voted for Trump, and strive to protect those who share NO Western liberal values (liberty, justice, religious freedom, freedom of thought and expression, etc) but who work to destroy them.

An engineer deliberately ran a train off the tracks at high speed near the Port of Los Angeles in an attempt to crash into and damage the USNS Mercy hospital ship, prosecutors say. The Pacific Harbor Line train derailed Tuesday, running through the end of the track and crashing through barriers, finally coming to rest about 250 yards from the docked naval ship. Federal prosecutors allege train engineer Eduardo Moreno, 44, of San Pedro intended to hit the ship, saying he thought it was "suspicious" and did not believe "the ship is what they say it's for.'"

Last September, "sources familiar with the private Supreme Court deliberations" talked to CNN about the Census Case. It was not clear who spoke to the media. Was it one or more Justices? Law clerks? Court staff? People who were in touch with the Justices or law clerks? These leaks were troubling. Confidential deliberations should remain confidential–especially when press reports paint some members of the Court in an unfavorable light. These disclosures corrode collegiality. Indeed, there have been new rounds of rumors about leaks in the Title VII SOGI cases.

Obama blasts Trump's handling of coronavirus

The Trump administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been an ‘absolute chaotic disaster,’ former President Barack Obama said on Friday. President Trump’s predecessor blamed the current occupant of the Oval Office and his allies for exacerbating ‘tribal’ tensions around the country, which he says has hampered the effort to reduce total number of cases nationwide. Audio of the web call in which Obama spoke was obtained by Yahoo News. ‘What we’re fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy - that has become a stronger impulse in American life,’ the president said.

Matt Drudge’s media links compilation has been one of the sites I’ve checked every morning for the last decade. The Drudge Report always had links to sites with stories I would not see on my trusted sites. I say “had” because I am weaning myself from it due to the dramatic shift in bias I’ve observed, especially in the most recent months. The Drudge Report has become part of the leftist media cabal slanting coverage to defeat President Trump. There were dramatic revelations in the plot to get Trump this week–virtually ignored by The Drudge Report. DOJ dismissed the charges against General Mike Flynn because of clear, unequivocal evidence of the FBI’s plot

As my colleague streiff reported earlier, a “private call” from former President Barack Obama just happened to be leaked to Michael Isikoff.

The same reporter who was leaked to about Carter Page. Almost as if there’s a pattern there that we’re seeing once again. On the call that obviously was private and not at all staged to be leaked, Obama said he was concerned that the “rule of law is at risk”

After seeming years of silence, and plenty of billionaire vacays, President Obama is on the warpath. Here's what the Washington Post is reporting: Former president Barack Obama shared deep worries Friday about the Justice Department’s decision to drop its prosecution of ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn (snip) The release of congressional interview transcripts, the declassification of some elements of the DoJ Inspector General investigation, and the news of the FISA warrant abuses on Carter Page, as well as the railroading of Gen. Michael Flynn, pretty well tell a story of Obama being the big power behind all of these legal abuses

Biden Campaign Building A ‘Secret’

The Biden for President campaign is building a “secret” group of Republican supporters in an effort to entice would-be Trump voters to cast a ballot for the former Vice President instead, per a Daily Beast report Sunday.The group is likely to attract so-called “Never Trump” Republicans, many of whom have been working against the president since before he won the election in 2016, and have undertaken several mostly unsuccessful efforts to undermine the president’s administration and derail his re-election.Biden gave some insight into the group’s creation late last month when he suggested that his campaign was “speaking to a lot of Republicans,”

On Friday, Ted Cruz flew to Dallas for a haircut. He hadn’t been looking particularly shaggy, but as hair salons have become the latest front in the culture war, Cruz—never one to miss an opportunity to declare which side he’s on—invited photographers to join him before he donned a face mask and a leopard-print smock for his visit to Salon à la Mode. The Dallas salon has become pivotal in the stay-at-home-order debates after its owner, Shelley Luther, was arrested on Tuesday and sentenced to seven days in jail on a contempt of court charge.

It's one of the biggest lies in leftist media and insider Washington politics: President Obama left the White House after eight years without a single scandal. "We didn't have a scandal that embarrassed us," Obama said during a private event in 2018, which was then repeated by his adoring allies. This is blatantly untrue and new information about the FBI's unsubstantiated criminal investigation into General Michael Flynn proves Obama was engaged in scandalous abuses of power right up until the moment he left the presidency.
