Think it can't happen here? It can happen here. That's the warning from a young woman from Venezuela, who has seen the statue-topplings before - and the street renamings, (and the flag alterings, and the name changings) along the destruction of history, and knows exactly where it leads. She made this powerful video [Video] "Why do I even worry about some silly little statues coming down? (snip) It's because the last time I didn't care about this, I was a teenager. I have already lived through this thing, when I was living in Venezuela"

On Wednesday, news broke (snip) Barr’s DOJ finally forced the FBI to release Comey’s debriefing of the January 5, 2017 meeting that led to the General Flynn persecution. The notes, which Peter Strzok wrote based on a conversation with Comey, show Obama directing the FBI to investigate General Flynn using “the right people,” while Biden came up with the idea that Flynn should be prosecuted under the Logan Act, an old, unconstitutional law that is inapplicable to a national security advisor. As well as showing a White House conspiracy against the incoming administration, the notes also reveal that Susan Rice’s bizarre inauguration email to herself was false and that Biden lied

Joe Biden, who is poised to earn enough delegates to formally secure the Democratic presidential nomination this month, promises to enter the general election campaign on offense in states President Trump won in 2016. As the nation battles a pandemic, high unemployment, and civil unrest, polls show Biden leading Trump in six critical swing states the latter narrowly carried four years ago (snip) Apparently, Joe Biden's campaign has only begun to hire top officials in key states, leaving him without senior staff in battleground states like Wisconsin, Michigan, and Florida, alarming some Democrats who say the leadership vacuum could hinder the party's efforts to defeat Donald Trump

Madness is in the air, with mobs terrifying guilt-ridden government officials, corporate leaders, educators, and the heads of all our significant institutions into violating previously sacred principles in an effort to prove their wokeness. The Constitution and basic concepts of justice are out the window, and we face a grim new normal in which “getting whitey” becomes acceptable behavior from governments. How else to explain this “Face Covering Directive” from the “Health & Human Services” mandarins of Lincoln County, Oregon (snip) the exceptions allowed (snip) People of color who have heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment due to wearing face coverings in public.

One of the rules of thumb in 2020 America is that, if you hear about a racist incident, you should refrain from commenting for 48 hours. (snip) no one left a noose in Bubba Wallace’s garage space.

So much for the "block party atmosphere." So much for the 'summer of love.' Summer hadn't even started on the calendar when Seattle's Mayor Jenny Durkan was forced to shut down the whole dumpster fire of lawlessness in the heart of her city down. She praised it and praised it - and somehow never guessed that a police-free zone might just be an attractive place for criminals. After turning six blocks of prime downtown land to armed warlords who chased out an entire police station and then set up their own 'autonomous zone,' they did the predictable, turning the area into a hellhole

The Trump administration has had a few things to say during these unsettling times. Trump doesn’t approve of statues being torn down. Barr threatens Bolton with proceeds from his book being forked over if Bolton doesn’t complete the approval process prior to publication. (By the way: financial profits, not potential jail time!) Trump tweets about “law and order.” Barr and Trump warn that mail-in ballots are a recipe for massive voter fraud, including outside interference from China. Pompeo is aghast at how poorly the media covered a recent major announcement by the State Department.

The Political Genius of Donald Trump 6 replies

The word ‘genius’ is not often appended to Donald Trump, except perhaps by himself, but he has demonstrated since early 2016 that he does indeed have a rare political genius. A man not given to modesty, President Trump can rightfully claim he embodies the American ideal of an assured sense of purpose that comes from totally believing in one’s own greatness. (snip) So preoccupied with destroying Trump has the Democratic Party been since 2016 that their only success is their own survival. But the party is even more disunited than in 2016

Much as Democrats would like to deny it, the reality is that Americans were unanimous in condemning how George Floyd died at police hands in a Democrat-run city. Even after learning that Floyd was a career criminal hopped up on drugs when he met his death, Americans were willing to accept the Democrats’ (and their fellow leftists’) demands for police reform. Had Democrats stopped there, they could have achieved yet another incremental leftward push for their political agenda (snip) The problem is that Democrats have trained their army of college grads, minorities, and other victim groups

John Oliver embodies the mentality of the elitists who look down on President Trump and his supporters as ignorant buffoons even better than his HBO colleague, Bill Maher. The very people whose self-regard is dependent on their academic credentials, social standing and career prestige adore Oliver (snip) With all this standing as an Important Voice, Oliver should face a reckoning for mocking President Trump when he warned us in 2017 that after the mob was done with Confederate monuments, the Founding Fathers would be next, a prophecy that played out just last week.

So much for Seattle's 'summer of love.' That's some 'block party atmosphere' they've got in the CHOP. Less than two weeks after Seattle's mayor allowed warlords to declare an autonomous zone over six blocks of Seattle in the name of 'abolishing' the police, the place is already starting to look like Liberia. (snip) Apparently, the cops couldn't get in in order to clear a path to allow the first responding medics in.

When Trump’s Tulsa rally had lower attendance than expected, Democrats declared victory. They were wrong to do so. This was a win for Trump, no matter how you look at it. (snip) First, Democrats openly used a Chinese communist media platform to interfere with an American election. That’s not a good look. Second, although this was a digital scam, the game-playing the Democrats are boasting about matches perfectly what Attorney General Bill Barr warns will happen if Democrat states insist on mail-in voting (snip) Third, Byron York points out that punking campaign events will become the new standard for Biden rallies too.

The Dixie Chicks have officially changed their name to “the Chicks,” after public discussions arose over the appropriateness of the Civil War-era “Dixie” as part of their moniker. The group had long been unofficially referred to as simply the Chicks by many fans and most of their associates in the music industry, but losing the “Dixie” is still a surprise, albeit a pleasant one to some supporters who had been quietly uncomfortable with the name and its historic connotations. “We want to meet this moment,” the country-pop trio said in a one-sentence statement on its website, alluding to the change.

Before NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace appeared on CNN with Don Lémon to discuss his now disproven racial “noose” targeting, he had a decision to make. Wallace could accept the FBI/NASCAR finding and admit an honest mistake was made by an overly sensitive Richard Petty racing team; or he could make racism his new identity in NASCAR as Colin Kaepernick did with football in the NFL. Bubba Wallace chose the latter. As a result of Wallace’s new identity, and his announced career goals, NASCAR will now fragment in the same way as the National Football League. Social justice will now define Mr. Wallace professional effort; driving with NASCAR becomes a

Biden Cancer Nonprofit Paid Its

Little to Eradicate Cancer

Posted by Pluperfect 6/25/2020 5:14:11 AM Post Reply
Nearly two-thirds of the money the Biden Cancer Initiative spent since its founding in 2017 went toward staff compensation and six-figure salaries for top executives. The group spent far less on efforts to eradicate cancer. One of several nonprofits Joe Biden created following his tenure in the White House, the Biden Cancer Initiative paid top executives lavishly, with salaries comprising nearly 65 percent of its total expenditures. That is well above the 25 percent charity watchdogs recommend nonprofits spend on administrative overhead and fundraising costs combined.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) warned Wednesday that some out-of-state travelers to New York might be pulled over by police if they have license plates from states with high levels of the coronavirus. Cuomo said that in addition to law enforcement, he would expect individuals such as hotel clerks and businesses in New York to question travelers from select states.“You’re stopped by a police officer who says, ‘You’re driving a car from Florida. Weren’t you supposed to be on quarantine for 14 days?’” he said, citing an example.Travelers from Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, Utah, and Texas would be ordered to put themselves

Historian Daniel E. Walker and activist and journalist Kevin Powell made the remarks in an article written by Yahoo Music Editor Lyndsey Parker titled 'Why it might be time to finally replace The Star-Spangled Banner with a new national anthem'.
