Take the Red Pill

Elon Musk is one of the brainiest people on the planet and a fighter. (snip) Musk exhorted his 34 million Twitter followers: "Take the red pill." The New York Times goofily referred to his message as "cryptic." Most people know that the hero in The Matrix films is offered a choice between a blue pill (comfortable delusions) and a red pill that lets you see reality and truth. Never mind what the Times suggests; taking the red pill is not a new development. Fox News reported in 2017: "People of all ages and ethnicities are posting YouTube videos describing 'red pill moments'

Wonder if the folks that wrote the Matrix had any idea of the implications of red vs blue would be in the color of the pill?

Mr Price is an expert on reading methods that work. His book "Saving K-12" is a must read for parents of young children. Your older children hate to read because of the way they were exposed to reading in public school.

George’s Floyd’s preliminary autopsy
raises the question: Was this

Almost totally absent from the mainstream news Friday, as the violent insurrection in the wake of George Floyd’s death spread to cities nationwide, were the preliminary results of his autopsy. The report was part of the arrest warrant for Derek Michael Chauvin (snip) The brief mention of the autopsy suggests that the case against Chauvin, and possibly his three colleagues assuming they too will eventually be charged, for being totally responsible for the death of Floyd may not be as cut and dried as previously thought.

Judging by extensive photo and video documentation from the scene, the looters and arsonists in Minnesota were up to one half white, largely of the (forgive the crude expression) "scrawny commie stoner" variety. The same is true with respect to the latest mayhem in Atlanta; New York; and Washington, D.C. These events have little in common with the race riots of the 1940s and 1960s. The majority of these young people, of all races, seem to be having a good time. (snip) What I am getting at is that the kids are going crazy.

When Trump supporters say 'it's not about Trump, it's about us,' when the left howls about President Trump, they aren't kidding. The Minnesota riots, brought on by a video of a bad instance of police brutality, have incited leftists to paint the perpetrating cop, Derek Chauvin, as a Trump supporter on social media, something they're spreading around (snip) Here's the fact-check that isn't been seen on Twitter from its vaunted fact-checkers: The claim is 100% fake. 100% And I've looked around for Twitter's disclaimers about it and don't see any.

One of the most enjoyable things about the #MeToo movement has been the way that a political movement the left obviously intended to take out Trump and other prominent Republicans instead ended up exposing the gross sexism and outright misogyny of prominent Democrats in the political and media world. One would think there would be the same pleasure in watching how leftists have tried to hurt conservatives in the wake of police shootings, since that effort, too, has looped back to hurt leftists. There is no joy with this political theater, though

Even Trump supporters have wondered about Trump’s tweets implying that MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough had something to do with a young intern’s death in his office when he was still a Florida congressman. (snip) I, however, don’t think it was strange at all. Trump is one of the most calculating, rational people ever to occupy the White House. He’s been faced with a serious problem, which is the fact that the immensely powerful social media giants, which are the gateway to most information nowadays, have already begun trying to sway the election to Biden.

It's pretty amazing how many negative activities gather around Michigan's hard-faced and ambitious Democratic governor, Gretchen Whitmer. Besides her outrageous performance on the coronavirus crisis - banning sales of garden seeds, seeding nursing homes with COVID-19 patients, forcing private dam operators to overfill their reservoir for greenie purposes, causing two of them to burst -- she's also a liar. We saw that clearly enough when her husband tried to put himself at the front of the boating queue by citing his marriage to her -- cronyism at its worst

And send to you friends who are cowering in fear of encountering a mask-free human being while outdoors in the sunshine, where coronavirus transmission is almost impossible unless French kissing somebody. It happened during a live shot in which anchor Katy Tur was expressing shock (“Are the people out there are just not worried, Cal?”)

Even if Leftists successfully obliterate Tara Reade’s story, there’s one creepy Joe Biden narrative that’s not going to go away, and that’s the endless footage of him getting too close to and too touchy with little girls. On Tuesday, a new video emerged with the usual footage showing Biden relentlessly pawing manifestly uncomfortable little girls. What makes this one different is the way it’s paired with statements from Professor Anthony Zenkus (ironically enough, a die-hard leftist and anti-capitalist) who speaks in an old video about how pedophiles groom children:

There have been several great columns on the debate over mask-wearing in public. Scott McKay at American Spectator explains why the mask is essentially useless: The mask is not an adequate defense against the COVID-19 virus, gang. (snip) David Marcus astutely observes that the mask has become the political symbol of 2020. Indeed it has. In Staten Island a mob of “karens” forced a woman from a store for not wearing a mask and they were not at all polite about it; they were vicious. This is all the end result of the wholly unnecessary lockdown of the American economy

The mayor of Minneapolis told individuals protesting that their anger is “understandable” and “right" but urged them to make sure they are wearing masks and practicing social distancing during their demonstrations. “The City encourages everyone to exercise caution to stay safe while participating in demonstrations, including wearing masks and physical distancing as much as possible to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey’s office wrote in a statement addressed to individuals who took to the streets following the death of George Floyd while in police custody. “The City has made hundreds of masks available to protesters this week.”

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot reacted angrily Friday to President Donald Trump’s threat to take action against protesters in Minneapolis, accusing him of trying to “inflame racist urges” while encouraging people planning to protest in her city to stick to social distancing guidelines.(Snip)“I will code what I really want to say to Donald Trump,” Lightfoot said. “It’s two words. It begins with ‘f’ and it ends with ‘you.’ I will not remain silent while this man cynically tries to turn this incredibly painful moment into one for his own political gain.” Lightfoot, a former federal prosecutor, is the city’s first black female mayor.

The governor of Minnesota has called for full mobilization of the state's National Guard, as he suggested that foreign and extremist influences are fueling chaos as protests over the in-custody death devolve into violence in cities across the country. 'Last night is a mockery of pretending that this is about George Floyd's death, or inequities, or historical traumas to our communities of color,' Governor Tim Walz, a Democrat, said on Saturday.(Snip) 'The situation in Minneapolis is no longer in any way about the murder of George Floyd, it is about attacking civil society, instilling fear, and disrupting our great cities,' Walz said.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey held a press conference early Friday morning at City Hall. Around 1:30 a.m., Frey addressed a city that is enduring escalating protests that have lasted for the past three days in response to the death of George Floyd. Four Minneapolis Police officers were fired in the incident that happened Monday night. Thursday night's protests accelerated in violence in comparison to the previous two, with the Minneapolis Police Department's 3rd Precinct set on fire, where all the fired officers were from. During his address to media, Frey reflected on the bigger meaning of the protests. "Brick

Hillary Clinton said Friday that President Trump’s response to the George Floyd-inspired protests in Minnesota is yet another reason for voters to give him the boot in the November election. “The president of the United States is calling for violence against American citizens,” Mrs. Clinton tweeted. “That is so wrong. We need honest reckoning and reconciliation.” “If you haven’t already joined the work to replace him in November, start now,” she said. Ms. Clinton, who lost to Mr. Trump in the 2016 election, appeared to be alluding to Mr. Trump’s early-morning comments regarding the unrest in the wake of Floyd’s death.

Thursday on MSNBC, former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett said because there is “de minimis vote fraud in our country,” we “should have vote-by-mail in every state.” Jarrett said, “This week, we launched Civic Cities, where we are working with mayors across the country. I started in local government, so I appreciate how mayors really do have a touch on what’s happening in the communities. They are extremely influential. So I asked them to help us engage with the constituents they have. We have 31 mayors off the bat. Many more joined on since then. We’re working in high schools because people who are first-time voters tend to be lifelong voters.

Chuck Hagel, a former GOP senator and Obama administration Defense secretary, says he's voting for Democrat Joe Biden over Republican Donald Trump in November. Hagel said during an interview with AL-Monitor's On the Middle East podcast that his choice is based on the belief that America continues to lose sight of its mission in Iraq and perhaps the entire Middle East. "We can't afford to just abandon Iraq," Hagel told show host Andrew Parasiliti. "I don't think our continued role should be to fight ISIS," on an indefinite basis.
