Hopefully, many of the things that lay heavy upon the nation right now will be in our collective rear-view mirror in the near future. These things include constant mention of pandemic and crisis, hourly radio reports and TV news reports of coronavirus infections and deaths, face masks, the pronouncements of "experts" like the little gnome man and the scarf lady, and ubiquitous signs and messages that implore us to stay home and stay safe (OBEY!) All of this is aimed at creating and reinforcing a state of fear and panic because scared people are easier to manipulate.

Whatever happened to “states rights”, their sovereignty and enumerated powers? Pull this and you will get federal law to cleanse Confederate memorials. Ready for that? People elected these fools. They deserve what the majority voting demanded.

Maybe the big box stores were allowed to remain open because they give big bucks to the politicians and "experts' while the mom and pop operations can't afford it. The " gnome man and the scarf lady" are responsible for most of our problems during the virus invasion and should be investigated to find out if they are receiving money from sources other than their salaries. I hate to say anything against Trump but he was hoodwinked by these two and allowed them to spout their obviously wrong charts and projections far too long.

Have wondered the same thing #2. The Mayor in Grants N.M. asking publicly, just a couple of weeks ago, why can't small businesses open ? WalMart's open, Home Depot is open but you can't shop at the corner market of local hardware store, you might get infected !! I never realized that bank checks or, even better, stacks of cash is just as effective as paper masks !!

If the Democrats win the presidency and take back the Senate, part of the Green New Deal will be be decrees for us to stay out of our cars in order to save the planet. My guess is it will start with a permit system with a bumper decal designating which three days per week we may drive that vehicle without additional passengers. The restrictions then will become ever more oppressive. Every large and small business that is not near a bus stop will be severely impacted.

Lawn signs sprouting in my suburban neighborhood state: "Graduating Class of 2020 — #AllInThisTogether." Our seniors chose that message, no doubt, because it's in use everywhere. But one more pronouncement of our so-called "togetherness" may make me scream. Across the country, some are more "in this" than others. It's all a matter of being essential. Or not. Or caught at a particularly good (or not so good) stage of your life or career. How do you prepare for the unexpected? My dentist is non-essential. It's impossible to offer virtual dental services.

Ballot Fraud Claims

My RedState colleague Nick Arama wrote earlier today about how Twitter is now “fact checking” President Trump’s tweets, starting with two he posted on Tuesday about how mail-in ballot voting is ripe for fraud, and has the potential of “rigging” the 2020 presidential election. As Nick noted, a number of high-profile conservatives fact checked Twitter in response, debunking their erroneous claim that Trump’s statements about voting by mail were “unsubstantiated.” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was another who pushed back hard against Twitter’s dismissal of Trump’s remarks on mail-in ballots, posting a series of tweets on the issue.

Lost in the shuffle of the Memorial Day holiday weekend — unusual, though it was — an Illinois judge unloaded on Governor J.B. Pritzker’s still-in-effect stay-at-home order this past Friday. I’ve written previously regarding the significant distinction between Chicago — and even Springfield — and “outstate” or “downstate” Illinois. This judge’s decision further highlights that great divide. The back story: State Rep. Darren Bailey, a Republican from the state’s 109th District, filed a lawsuit against Pritzker in April, asserting that Pritzker’s stay-at-home order unfairly affected the residents of his home county. Clay County Judge Michael McHaney issued a temporary restraining order in that matter, but only as to Bailey himself,

Just as the left attempts to sell us on the idea of solid mail-in voting for all future elections in the wake of the coronavirus, out comes the first arrest for mail-in ballot fraud. According to the Washington Times' Stephen Dinan: Federal prosecutors on Tuesday lodged mail-fraud charges against a postal worker they say altered absentee ballot requests in last month’s primary election. Thomas Cooper, 47, admitted to changing information on the requests for ballots — including five where he switched the party primary from Democrat to Republican, according to investigators. He told them it was a joke. The charges were announced the same day that President Trump renewed his attack on mail-in voting,

In the age of instant news, do we even need a daily White House press briefing? The latest from the talking heads club is that some, from Chris Wallace to Jonah Goldberg, find Kayleigh McEnany a little "Indefensible And Grotesque." I've seen a couple of Kaleigh's performances and it's hard to think of her as "grotesque." She is self-assured, but grotesque? After all, this is a group of reporters who ask questions like comparing the pandemic death totals to Vietnam casualties or another blamed the president because someone listened to him in February and died of the virus.

The Daily Mail (U.K.) says a technical report from Singapore predicts that COVID-19 will be gone in the U.S. by Nov. 11, the U.K. by Sept. 30, Italy by Oct. 24. Maybe that's why the heralded Oxford University vaccine development group is getting nervous. According to this account reported in the Sydney Morning Herald, the virus is disappearing, creating a panic among the vaccine developers. In fact the virus is fading so rapidly that "Professor Adrian Hill said an upcoming Oxford vaccine trial, involving 10,000 volunteers, threatened to return "no result" because of low transmission of COVID-19 in the community." "It is a race, yes.

President Trump has won the lockdown wars as coronavirus-related restrictions on businesses are eased across the country, so far with few signs of dire health consequences for the population. Just weeks ago, the question was whether to reopen, with the first states to press ahead accused of engaging in human sacrifice and killing their residents to appease the “Trump death cult.” New York Times columnist Paul Krugman asked, “How many will die for the Dow?” as recently as Thursday. Now, the debate is primarily over how quickly and to what extent reopening should take place,

Last week, I visited a local shop in Camden, Maine, that caters largely to tourists. On my way out, I asked the owners how they were holding up. They, of course, replied that they are desperately concerned about their business and are just trying to survive — like most business owners across the country right now. The entrepreneurs also said they were having a difficult time getting their employees to come back to work because they’re receiving close to $1,000 a week for not working. It’s a confusing and concerning problem for these business owners because they took the Paycheck Protection Program funds

Some companies are adding coronavirus surcharges to bills, infuriating customers enough to take their business elsewhere. “Many customers are angry about the changes,” wrote Ted Rossman, an industry analyst at Rossman noted that roughly 86% of respondents from an American Express survey said they would stop patronizing a business if it applied surcharges to receipts. A dentist in Florida charged patients $10 to help pay for the personal protective equipment worn by staff, which the mother of one patient felt she was not obligated to pay. "I don’t feel that I’m required to pay that," she told a local news station in Jacksonville, Florida.

Many restaurants in Illinois are preparing for outdoor dining starting on May 29, but indoor dining rooms must remain closed. As it stands now under Gov. J.B.

But recently, Kent has taken on a new role as coalition board member of Military Families for Trump to get President Donald Trump re-elected,

Anthony Fauci on Wednesday said there's no evidence that shows the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine is effective at treating COVID-19. "Clearly the scientific data is really quite evident now about the lack of efficacy for it," Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease doctor, said during a CNN interview. Fauci said evidence also shows the likelihood that the drug can cause severe irregular heart rhythms. "There was suspicion of that for a while, but as data comes in, it becomes more clear," Fauci said. The pronouncements mark Fauci's strongest warnings yet against the drug and puts him at odds with President Trump, who has embraced the drug as a "game changer" and a "miracle."

A suspected looter has been shot dead outside a pawn shop after protests over the death of George Floyd descended into chaos Wednesday night and rioters vandalized stores across the city. Minneapolis Department Police Chief John Elder confirmed in a midnight press conference that one person was shot and killed and that another person was being held in custody. (Snip) Stores including Wendy's, Target, Walmart and AutoZone were looted, ransacked and some set alight before rioters tried to bust open an ATM, as many ignored pleas from the Floyd family's lawyer and Minnesota Governor Walz to protest peacefully Wednesday night.

Bill Clinton is accused of having an affair with Ghislaine Maxwell during trips they took on pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's private jet, an explosive new book claims. The details of the alleged affair between the former president and the British socialite are detailed in a new book - A Convenient Death: The Mysterious Demise of Jeffrey Epstein. In an excerpt of the book, obtained by the New York Post, sources said Clinton would have sex with Maxwell during overseas trips on Epstein's Lolita Express plane and he would visit her at her Manhattan townhouse. The former president has denied having the affair with Maxwell.

The COVID-19 Death Count?

As the “official” tally of COVID-19 deaths tops 100,000 in the U.S., we keep hearing how that number is likely a low-ball estimate. But there’s far more evidence that the death count has been knowingly exaggerated – possibly by a very wide margin. A recent Seattle Times article pretty much lays out the charade going on. The headline reads: “Washington state’s actual coronavirus death toll may be higher than current tallies, health officials say.” But the story itself leads one to the exact opposite conclusion. Well down in the article, the reporter reveals that: “The rapid onslaught of this coronavirus forced

There’s a great deal to be upset about regarding the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers under color of authority, but it’s quite another thing for protesters to turn into rioters and steal stuff under cover of righteous indignation. That’s what happened in Minneapolis Wednesday night after Police Chief Medaria Arradondo announced that four police officers involved in the stop on Sunday night were fired. Floyd died in custody Sunday night after getting stopped for forgery. Floyd was held down at his neck by an officer using his knee.

Six days later, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that the city was “buckling down,” after having experienced “some recidivism” among released criminals. Unbelievably, de Blasio called the crimes committed by previously-convicted criminals “unconscionable”:

There’s a good chance the coronavirus will never go away. Even after a vaccine is discovered and deployed, the coronavirus will likely remain for decades to come, circulating among the world’s population. Experts call such diseases endemic — stubbornly resisting efforts to stamp them out. Think measles, HIV, chickenpox. It is a daunting proposition — a coronavirus-tinged world without a foreseeable end. But experts in epidemiology, disaster planning and vaccine development say embracing that reality is crucial to the next phase of America’s pandemic response. The long-term nature of covid-19, they say, should serve as a call to arms for
