About Pandemic, Elections

By golly, I think we've discovered the qualifications that got Katherine Maher hired to run Government Radio. Christopher Rufo has done extensive digging into Maher's track record, none of which had anything to do with journalism until NPR made her its new CEO in January. Maher did work at Wikipedia as its CEO during the pandemic and the 2020 election, where she took an active role in content control. And by content control, Maher made clear in a remote address to the Atlantic Council in 2021, she means imposing censorship on any information or discussion to which the government objected on both topics (transcript via RealClearPolitics):

She is not willing to do a review to see that she was actually promoting misinformation, which was the point of the insider story. Rather than admit their errors and do something about it, they simply moved on like it never happened. NPR has no integrity as a news organization.

This means that NPR parroted what the WH said. That is not honest reporting. What happened to investigative reporters, you don't hear from them anymore. News media says what the government wants them to say. Clowns now are reporters on most of the TV news media. We are now looking like a socialist or communist country.

Senate reauthorizes warrantless spy powers
just after midnight deadline

The Senate passed a controversial extension of the federal government’s warrantless spying powers just after a midnight deadline on Friday over objections from Democrats and Republicans who opposed the incidental collection of US citizens’ data as part of the authority. In a 60-34 vote, Democrats and Republicans voted to reauthorize Title VII of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) until 2026, sending the legislation to President Biden’s desk for a signature. The White House issued a statement in strong support of the legislation, called the Reforming Intelligence and Securing America Act, before it passed the House last week in a 273-147 bipartisan vote.

Workers at a Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee, voted overwhelmingly to join the United Auto Workers, becoming the first Southern autoworkers outside of the Big Three to do so in a region long resistant to unionization, the labor group announced late Friday. The UAW declared victory as votes continued to be tallied, with its unofficial count at 2,628 for joining the union and 985 opposed, or 73% to 27%. "Volkswagen thanks its Chattanooga workers for voting in this election," the company said in a statement acknowledging that workers had voted in favor of union representation.

Just one day after Israel made good on its promise to strike back at Iran for its drone and missile attacks against Israel on Monday, with bombing inside Iran, Iraq (Baghdad and Babil), and Syria, there are reports of new bombing in Iraq on Friday. Social media has been flooded with video of the attacks, thought to be focused on Iran-affiliated militia groups. One video claims that eight were killed in the airstrikes.

Earlier this month a Harvard Law School professor named Randall Kennedy called for the end of mandatory DEI statements, saying they made him "wince" and that they discredited the current "DEI regime." Candidates for academic positions at Harvard should not be asked to support ideological commitments. Imagine the howl of protest that would (or should) erupt if a school at Harvard asked a candidate for a faculty position to submit a statement of their orientation towards capitalism, or patriotism, or Making America Great Again with a clear expectation of allegiance? Such pressure constitutes an encroachment upon the intellectual freedom that ought to be part of the enjoyment of academic life...

An investigation is underway by the Federal Aviation Administration and United Airlines after a member of the Colorado Rockies’ traveling party was allegedly seen on video sitting in the captain’s chair in the plane’s cockpit during the team’s flight on April 10, the Wall Street Journal reported. The Rockies were en route to Toronto on a charter flight operated by United when the video was taken, according to the report. Following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, federal regulations tightened around who is allowed to be on the flight deck, and United’s own flight operations manual requires the cockpit door to remain closed the way it would be

Police officers can be seen in the videos dousing the man’s body with a fire extinguisher. The motivation an identity of the man who set himself on fire was not immediately clear.

Israel carried out a drone and missile strike inside Iran Thursday night in retaliation for the massive strike on Israel Saturday. Israel targeted facilities around Isfahan in central Iran, where Iranian nuclear facilities are located. The primary target seems to have been air defense systems around the Khatami Air Base near Isfahan. This is one of the bases from which last weekend's attack on Israel was launched. According to reports, the US was given notice of the attack at only the last minute. Speaking at the end of a meeting of the Group of Seven nations in Capri, Italy, Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani said

Israel downplayed reported airstrikes against Iran that appeared to hit targets near that country’s suspected nuclear program on Friday, seeming to cast the operation as proof Israel could reach the sites, rather than a full-scale attack. As Breitbart News noted, there were media reports that Israeli drones, or missiles, had hit targets near Isfahan, Iran — close to the Natanz nuclear facility — as well as targets in Syria and Iraq. Israel’s Army Radio repeated these reports. damage might have been, and one Israeli lawmaker — national security minister Itamar Ben Gvir — posted dismissively on Twitter/X that the attack had been a “scarecrow,” or “lame.”

National Public Radio CEO Katherine Maher has been thoroughly exposed as a radical in recent days as one of NPR’s veteran editors—Uri Berliner—actually told the truth and revealed that the taxpayer-sponsored “news organization” is hopelessly biased toward the progressive viewpoint. For this transgression, he was promptly suspended; he said thank you but take a hike, I’m resigning. The highly publicized back-and-forth led inquiring minds to take a closer look at Maher’s past, and what they found out is that she’s a radical extremist who thinks the leftist narrative is more important than the actual truth and that those who don’t stick to said narrative

The Biden administration on Friday released its long-anticipated rewrite of Title IX, but left out any mention of transgender-identifying male athletes in women’s sports. The Biden administration’s draft proposal included a radical revision that would have forced forced federally funded educational institutions to allow men to compete on their women’s sports teams unless they demonstrate it compromises student safety. Under that rule, the burden of proof would have been shifted to schools, which in effect would have to create separate policies for every sport.

The evil that is now running rampant across our country is ostensibly directed at Israel, but Israel is only the pretext, a target of convenience. We have seen in recent months that “anti-Zionism” is merely a cover for anti-Semitism. If Israel disappeared tomorrow, the anti-Semites here, in Western Europe and elsewhere, wouldn’t miss a beat. But it doesn’t stop there. In Iranian and al Qaeda ideology, Israel is only the Little Satan. America is the Great Satan. So, what would happen if someone brought an American flag to an anti-Israel demonstration? A few brave souls tried it: The al Qaeda and Iranian dogma that America is the Great Satan

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) made history Thursday night just before midnight by essentially surrendering Republican majority control to Democrats. For the first time in recorded history — since the House began keeping records — the House Rules Committee relied on minority party votes to overcome objections from the majority and advance a rule bill to the House floor. The committee voted nine to three, with all four Democrats on the committee voting with five Republicans to move a rule to the House floor, which, if passed with Democrat support as expected, would allow votes on Johnson’s foreign aid package, including a bill that includes tens of billions to fund Ukraine.
