"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.
It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated;
but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end
for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." —C. S. Lewis (1898–1963)

“Immigrants soon find their place in urban life, they soon adopt, externally, town manners and opinions, but for a long time they remain foreign to civic thought. One cannot make a social philosophy one’s own as easily as a new costume. . .

The Hunter Biden Corruption Scandal Is a Reckoning for the Legacy Media
Tyler O'Neil
The legacy media blinds itself. Many legacy media outlets have refused to report on the evolving Hunter Biden scandal. National Public Radio announced that it would not cover the story because the bombshell stories are "pure distractions" or "stories that are not really stories." As PJ Media's Jim Treacher noted, this boils down to the puerile statement, "'cause we don't wanna, so there."

Trump Already Won Tthe Hunter Scandal
Don Surber

Biden has presented himself as a Lunch Bucket Joe who identifies with factory workers. That those factories all disappeared in the 44 years he was in office – 1973 through 2017 – does not seem to matter to his handlers. Now the people know he was on the take all along.

Vernon Jones (D), and former NFL player Herschel Walker each claimed that Donald Trump "has done more for us in 47 months than Joe Biden has done in 47 years in public service."
Biden: Muslims Will Serve 'At Every Level' of His Administration

Soros-Funded Prosecutors Put 'Social Justice' Above Law and Order,
 Analysts Say

Self-styled progressive political activists who win election as district attorneys with financial support from wealthy donors have made "social justice" initiatives more important than public safety, legal analysts say.

Obamacare's Illusion of Preexisting Condition Protections
Contrary to the prevailing media narrative, federal health insurance enrollment protections for preexisting conditions long predate Obamacare. Bipartisan legislation passed nearly 25 years ago protects people with preexisting conditions and prior health coverage from having to wait for their condition to be covered when they move to a new job. These protections apply to the 180 million Americans with job-based coverage, who represent roughly 90 percent of everyone with private health coverage.
Memo Suggests FBI Opened Manafort Probe
Before Trump Hired Lobbyist but Gave No Warning

A recently declassified government document suggests the FBI opened its most recent investigation of Paul Manafort in January 2016, two months before President Trump hired the lobbyist as a senior official in his campaign. The revelation is prompting new questions about why the bureau did not provide the GOP candidate with a defensive briefing.
Trump Asks, 'Who Built The Cages, Joe?'
Here's the Answer: Biden and Obama Did

Trump explained that children aren't just brought here by their families, but by coyotes and cartels as a means of getting into the United States. When pressed on how he'll reunite the kids with their families, Trump pointed out that it was the Obama-Biden administration that built the cages and began the policy of child separation. Biden accused President Trump of implementing child separation as a disincentive for illegal immigrants to come to this country.
Biden: I'll Propose 'Pathway to Citizenship' for
11M Illegal Immigrants 'Within 100 Days'

While Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has dodged questions about what he would do to the Supreme Court if elected, he's quite clear about his plans on illegal immigrants. "The fact is I've made it very clear within 100 days, I'm going to send to the United States Congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people," Biden said in Thursday's debate with President Donald Trump.
Trump 'coyote' Remark Confuses Twitter,
Including Georgia State Democrat

When President Trump suggested at Thursday's presidential debate that the more than 500 migrant children unable to be reunited with their parents were brought to the border by "coyotes," many on social media were left confused. Trump supporters pounced on the mistake, mocking liberals who weren't up-to-date on border-area lingo. Many thought the president was talking about actual animals bringing children across the border – rather than human smugglers, for whom "coyotes" is a slang term.

Full Story Behind Hunter's Laptop
Debunks Latest Russia Conspiracy Theory

Tyler Durden
As the Hunter Biden laptop scandal threatens to throw the 2020 election into chaos with what appears to be solid, undisputed evidence of high-level corruption by former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter, the same crowd which peddled the Trump-Russia hoax is now suggesting that Russia is behind it all. If one looks at the actual facts of the case – in particular, that Hunter Biden appears to have dropped his own laptops off at a computer repair shop, signed a service ticket, and the shop owner approached the FBI first and Rudy Giuliani last after Biden failed to pick them up, the left's latest Russia conspiracy theory is quickly debunked.
How Do We Know the
Hunter/Joe Biden Documents Are Real?

John Hinderaker
First, because Biden hasn't denied that the hard drive belonged to Hunter, and the documents contained thereon are real. Second, because there is a witness. The Democrats have to be careful, because there is a real, live repair shop owner who is ready to explain what happened and to vouch for the integrity of the hard drive.
The Biden Emails Prove Impeachment Was a Sham
David Marcus
Remember January? ... [T]hink back to the biggest story of those chilly days. It wasn't the Chinese virus slowly spreading to our shores or the Democratic presidential primary. No, it was the impeachment of the president of the United States. This week's bombshell New York Post story on Hunter Biden now shows what many of us suspected: The impeachment was a ridiculous sham.
Sen. Ron Johnson Presses Wray on
Validity of Hunter Biden Laptop Claim

Sen. Ron Johnson is calling on FBI Director Christopher Wray to confirm or deny details regarding a laptop said to have belonged to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden. "The FBI has a duty to inform us. If they believe this was maybe Russian disinformation, they should give us a defensive briefing," Johnson told "Sunday Morning Futures." "If, for example, they also believe that what information this whistleblower gave us is fraudulent, that would also be a crime, and FBI should tell us that."

Hunter Biden Demanded Chinese billionaire Pay $10 Million for
'introductions alone,' Emails Show

Hunter Biden was receiving a $10 million annual fee from a Chinese billionaire who has been accused of corruption and with whom he sought to increase the cash flow with a joint business ownership, an August 2017 email from Mr. Biden shows. The money was for "introductions alone," said Mr. Biden, son of Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden. Another email to Hunter Biden from a consultant says that a 10% stake in an unnamed company will go to "the big guy?" The "big guy" was not identified.

Smoking-gun Email Reveals
How Hunter Biden Introduced Ukrainian Businessman to VP Dad

Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at a Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company, according to emails obtained by The Post. "Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together...

Source on Alleged Hunter Biden Email Chain
Verifies Message About Chinese Investment Firm

One of the people on an explosive email thread allegedly involving Hunter Biden has corroborated the veracity of the messages, which appear to outline a payout for former Vice President Joe Biden as part of a deal with a Chinese energy firm. The email includes a note that "Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate." A proposed equity split references "20" for "H" and "10 held by H for the big guy?" with no further details. Fox News spoke to one of the people who was copied on the email, who confirmed its authenticity.
FCC Moves to ‘clarify’ Section 230 Law
Following Censoring of Post Story

Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai on Thursday sent shockwaves through Silicon Valley when he announced plans to “clarify the meaning” of a law that protects tech giants from being held responsible for content posted by their users post.
Mainstream Media Ignores, Downplays
New York Post Bombshell On Hunter Biden

The mainstream media went into overdrive to dismiss Wednesday's New York Post bombshell revealing damning emails allegedly found on Hunter Biden's computer, with some outlets simply ignoring the development and others doing their best to cast the report as dubious. The New York Post report, entitled "Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad," touched on suggestions that the former vice president's son had unscrupulous financial and business ties to a natural gas firm in Ukraine – Burisma Holdings – and that his father later stepped in to have a probing prosecutor fired for looking into the matter.
Facebook, Twitter's Censorship Brazenly Protects Biden –
Endangers Our Democracy

Liz Peek
In 2016 President Trump promised to drain the swamp. Little did he know how tough that would be. The swamp is protected by the liberal media, Hollywood, the Justice Department, much of corporate America, academia, and now – most threatening of all – social media. The same social media that is working overtime to elect Joe Biden president. It isn't just that Twitter and Facebook tried to squash a blockbuster New York Post story that could destroy Joe Biden's campaign; it is that they were so brazen about it.
Facebook and Twitter's Censorship Is An Insult to Democracy –
They Must Stop or Be Broken Up

Gregg Jarrett
The great Twitter and Facebook masquerade is over. Posing as disinterested and neutral media platforms, they have unmasked themselves as partisan protectors of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden and propaganda advocates of the progressive cause. It is time that Twitter and Facebook be forced to halt their destructive practices or be broken up. The two technology giants wield too much marketplace power in the ever-expanding social media universe. With power comes abuse.
CBS Obtains 94-Page Outline Showing FBI and Chris Steele
Collaborative Use of Media Reporting

CBS News Catherine Herridge has obtained a 94-page spread sheet (pdf here) showing dates of media reports, dates of Steele reports on the same material, and the FBI effort to verify or validate the circular process.   In essence this is evidence of the process we initially shared almost three years ago; only now we know the names.
Biden Donor Group Sends 225,000+ Ballot Requests,
Including for DEAD Citizens

A self-described "voter participation" group which donates exclusively to Democrats and Joe Biden's presidential campaign has been caught making en masse ballot requests for deceased people. The Center for Voter Information was described by the Washington Post as having "a history of sending error-ridden mailers" but also labeled it "nonpartisan" – a farcical and manifestly false claim. The group is responsible for sending over 225,000 ballot request forms to residents in Texas, many of whom are deceased.
Group Claims Nearly 400,000 California Ballots
Sent to People Who Moved Out of State or Died

Millions of California ballots have been delivered to residents across the state as early voting begins for the 2020 general election, but some have gone to people who should no longer be registered to vote in the state, one group claims. A new study from the Election Integrity Project California has found that close to 400,000 ballots have been sent to people who moved or died.
370K Pennsylvania Mail-In Ballot Applications Rejected
Pennsylvania has cast off hundreds of thousands of applications for mail-in ballots ahead of the 2020 election, because of confusion about the process. About 372,000 requests were rejected, as reported by ProPublica on Friday, largely because many of them, about 90%, were duplicates. Overall, one out of every five requests for mail-in ballots are being rejected, according to the publication.
1619 Project – The Left's Final Assault on America
Scot Faulkner
The 1619 premise is: "Our democracy's founding ideals were false when they were written." Everything that happened in American history flows from the "original sin" of slavery. Every concept, document and institution that shapes and guides America was actually designed to promote slavery and therefore must be eradicated to atone for centuries of racial oppression... To succeed, the 1619 Project must ignore mountains of facts and fabricate mountains of lies.
The 1619 Project: Down, But Far from Out – Despite Sustained Criticism, the NYT Initiative is Still Being Promoted in Schools
The 1619 Project seeks to revise American history with a tendentious thesis: it claims that 1619, the year that 20 Africans arrived in the English colonies, and not 1776, marked the beginning of America, its 'true founding'. According to the Times, the U.S. was forged to preserve slavery, not the freedom and equality promised by the Declaration of Independence. America is a racist nation by design, and thus illegitimate, says the 1619 Project.
Congressmen Call for Investigation into Florida Democratic Party
'Looting' PPP Intended to aid Hardworking Americans

On Thursday, several congressmen called for a federal investigation into the Florida Democratic Party after  revelations that it applied for and accepted a large sum from a federal aid program designed to assist small businesses and workers hammered by the coronavirus pandemic and which explicitly excluded political entities.

The Clear Strengths of Trump's Platinum Plan for Black America
AJ Swinson
The best way to figure out if a political candidate is listening to voters is to examine his policy responses to their concerns. President Trump's Platinum Plan for Black America is a case study in thoughtful listening and constructive engagement, resulting in a series of proposals that can bring positive change to individual families and the Black community as a whole.
Liberty, in Sickness and in Health –
Judicial Skepticism is Reining in Pandemic Emergency Orders

Timothy R. Snowball
In the pandemic's early days, the American judiciary largely gave governors wide leeway in issuing unprecedented business-closure and stay-at-home orders in order to dampen the spread of the disease. More recently, some judges, concerned by the scope and duration of those orders, have taken steps to enforce constitutional limits on executive power.
Dr. Scott Atlas Accuses Media of Spreading 'partial truths'
About Coronavirus: 'It's very damaging'

NBC's Peter Alexander had pointed out that Atlas had contradicted Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield about how much of the U.S. population remains vulnerable to COVID-19. “You’re supposed to believe the science and I’m telling you the science," Atlas fired back.
Kristen Welker, Upcoming Presidential Debate Moderator,
Has Deep Democrat Ties

Her mother, Julie Welker, a prominent real estate broker in Philadelphia, and father, Harvey Welker, a consulting engineer, have donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates and close to $20,000 to Barack Obama alone. There was also $3,300 for Joe Biden's 2020 campaign and $2,100 for Hillary Clinton's doomed 2016 presidential effort against Trump. Another $7,300 was contributed to the Democratic National Committee between 2004 and 2020.
Pro-Second Amendment Judge Overseeing
Third Gun Rights Case This Week, Gun Control Groups Cry Foul

A U.S. District Judge in San Diego who has issued rulings in two separate lawsuits challenging California’s strict gun control measures will take up another weapons-related case on Monday, sparking criticism from gun-control groups who pro-gun advocates have been given an unfair advantage. Judge Roger Benitez has twice ruled in favor of gun rights: in a case that challenged California’s ban of high-capacity magazines, and another case mandating background checks for buying ammunition, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Biden Endorses Transgender Activism for 8-Year-Old Children
During the ABC News town hall on Thursday, Democratic nominee Joe Biden explicitly endorsed transgender identity and activism for children as young as 8 years old. He suggested that he would force schools, homeless shelters, and other institutions to let biological boys into girls' restrooms, changing rooms, other facilities, and sports in the name of fighting "discrimination."
No, Joe Biden, Cops Can't Just Shoot People in the Leg
Robby Soave
"You can ban chokeholds, but beyond that you have to teach [the police] how to de-escalate circumstances," said Biden. "So instead of anybody coming at you and the first thing you do is shoot to kill, you shoot them in the leg." This was just one line in a very long, rambling answer to a question about police violence – but it stuck out for its sheer absurdity. The suggestion betrays a total lack of understanding about how guns work.
The Significance of Macron's War on Islamism
Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Emmanuel Macron recently announced that he wanted to end 'Islamic separatism' in France. A minority of the country's estimated six million Muslims risk forming a 'counter-society', he said. It is tough talk from the President, but Macron is keen to position himself as the defender of French values, ...Macron proclaimed that 'the Republic won't erase any name from its history. It will forget none of its artworks. It won't take down statues.'
Surprise: Majority of Arabs Back Trump
Middle East Peace Plan, 79% of Saudis

In a surprise that experts didn't see coming, most Arabs in countries that would be affected by President Trump's Middle East peace plan endorse the pathway to normalized relations with Israel. In the survey, a remarkable 7 in 10 people in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, and Jordan said they also feel that normalization is coming despite what Palestinian leaders do to resist peace with the Jewish state.
Ohio State Prof Says Clarence Thomas Not 'authentically Black':

At a symposium hosted by Texas A&M University at Commerce, titled, "What the Truth Sounds Like," Professor Donna Ford argued that one of the significant problems in education is White females.

Orthodox Jewish Rabbis Sue Cuomo for
'Blatantly Anti-Semitic' COVID Order

On Wednesday, three Orthodox Jewish congregations in Rockland County, N.Y., sued Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) for issuing a "blatantly anti-Semitic" coronavirus order restricting religious services in Jewish areas, just before three sequential Jewish holy days. Cuomo falsely blamed the Orthodox Jewish community for a surge in COVID-19 cases in New York, referring to the surge as "a predominantly ultra-orthodox cluster," and he admitted the lockdowns were based on "fear" rather than science.

So, You Don't Like Trump
Ray DiLorenzo
I have never in my lifetime witnessed such an assault on a president to this magnitude by corrupt politicians and a corrupt media. The toughest job in the world made infinitely more difficult. This election will be a dangerous, massive pretense, a cloak, a farce. 'Listen' to what the Democrats don't say, not what they do say. So, if you don't like Trump. Maybe what you would call an unpresidential demeanor, is his commitment to America and just a lack of BS.
Yes, Hillary Clinton Orchestrated the Russia-Collusion Farce
Andrew C. McCarthy
In late July 2016, Hillary Clinton, in an effort to divert attention from the email scandal that was haunting her presidential bid, directed her campaign to peddle a political narrative that Russia's suspected hacking and leaking of Democratic Party emails was in furtherance of a conspiracy between Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump to swing the election to Trump.
DNI Declassifies Brennan Notes, CIA Memo on
Hillary Clinton 'stirring up' Scandal Between Trump, Russia

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Tuesday declassified documents that revealed former CIA Director John Brennan briefed former President Obama on Hillary Clinton's purported "plan" to tie then-candidate Donald Trump to Russia as "a means of distracting the public from her use of a private email server" ahead of the 2016 presidential election, Fox News has learned.
'As fast as we can' Pompeo Says Clinton's Private Server Emails
Could Be Released Before Election

Pompeo was asked if he is concerned that revealing the emails would have national security implications... "I've been at this a long time with President Trump, for four years now, almost. I've never seen him do anything that would put any kind of asset, any one of our officers in harms way. He wouldn't do that," Pompeo said on Fox News.
Gregg Jarrett Lambastes the Media as
'willing accessories to the Russia hoax'

Fox News legal analyst Greg Jarrett believes that there will be troves of proof demonstrating government officials' egregious misconduct during the Russia collusion probe once all of the materials get declassified. Jarrett told the "John Solomon Reports" podcast remarked that he thinks "when all of it is declassified there will be a mountain of damning, incriminating evidence about just how devious and corrupt these government officials were in the Russia hoax."
National Association of Scholars
Calls for Revoking the 1619 Project Pulitzer Prize

An impressive array of academics associated with the National Association of Scholars signed a letter to the Pulitzer Prize Board calling for it to revoke the prize it ceremoniously awarded to Nikole Hannah-Jones this year for her lead essay in The New York Times' deeply troubled and historically challenged 1619 Project.

Pulitzer Board Must
Revoke Nikole Hannah-Jones' Prize for 1619 Project Reporting

Peter Wood
We call on the Pulitzer Prize Board to rescind the 2020 Prize for Commentary awarded to Nikole Hannah-Jones for her lead essay in "The 1619 Project." That essay was entitled, "Our democracy's founding ideals were false when they were written." But it turns out the article itself was false when written, making a large claim that protecting the institution of slavery was a primary motive for the American Revolution, a claim for which there is simply no evidence.

A Pulitzer Prize That Should Be Revoked
Paul Mirengoff
I believe the Pulitzer Board awarded its prize to Hannah-Jones and, in effect to the Project, precisely because her essay viciously attacked America, If anything, the Board likely regarded the distortions, inaccuracies, and half truths as a feature, not a bug. Thus, I very much doubt that the Board will revoke the prize. However, the open letter serves as an important rebuke.
Washington Post Blames "Systemic Racism" for George Floyd
Robbing a Latino Woman at Gunpoint

Daniel Greenfield
The Washington Post took a shot at making its own version of the 1619 Project for George Floyd. "Born with two strikes – How systemic racism shaped Floyd's life and hobbled his ambition," the paper owned by the richest man in the world falsely claims. Floyd, you see, wanted to be a Supreme Court justice. But a racist country just kept arresting him for drugs, theft, and... armed robbery.
COVID-19: Is Vitamin D a Silver Bullet?
Mikko Paunio MD, MHS Medical Counsellor
The Great Barrington Declaration, which has been signed by almost 4,300 epidemiologists and public health specialists, around 7,700 medical professionals and 108,000 members of the general public, calls for protecting the most vulnerable and opening up society. Vitamin D supplements could significantly improve public acceptance of this alternative strategy, which would allow us to normalize societies.
Study: New Bedside Test Means
Faster Diagnosis, Treatment of COVID-19

A rapid, bedside test for COVID-19 delivers results in less than two hours, meaning that appropriate treatment can be initiated earlier for those already hospitalized because of their symptoms, according to a study published Thursday by The Lancet Respiratory Medicine. The standard COVID-19 test uses polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, technology... The PCR test requires samples to be sent to a centralized lab within the hospital for processing, typically takes more than 20 hours to produce results, the researchers said.
Federal Appeals Court Reinstates Criminal Convictions of

Putin Says He Wants to Work With Biden,
Claims 'Shared Values' Between Democrats and Communism

Russian President Vladimir Putin has attempted to mark a positive resemblance between Democratic presidential candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Soviet communists in a wide-ranging interview with the Rossiya TV channel... "The Democratic Party is traditionally closer to the so-called liberal values, closer to social democratic ideas," Putin said. "And it was from the social democratic environment that the Communist Party evolved."
Biden Rewrites History on Trump's Proud Boys Comment
On Thursday, Democratic nominee Joe Biden rushed to blame President Donald Trump for the plot to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-Mich.). In doing so, he lied about Trump's comments during the first presidential debate, misquoting and twisting the president's words in order to demonize his opponent. ...Biden misquoted the president in an attempt to accuse him of inspiring the kidnapping attempt.
Liberal Donors Pass Millions in Secret Election Cash
Through Sixteen Thirty Fund

Democratic donors are obscuring millions in 2020 election cash by using a dark money entity to mask the original source of the contributions, federal filings show. Nearly $30 million in secret cash has been pumped into the elections through the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a progressive incubator managed by Arabella Advisors, a D.C.-based consulting firm. Because the Sixteen Thirty Fund does not disclose its donors' identities, individuals can use the group to fund super PACs anonymously.

Andrea Mitchell Redefines Stupid
Don Surber
The problem with her is her sense of feminist entitlement. By virtue of her sex, Hillary should have gotten the presidency in 2016. Failing that, Harris should get the vice presidency and then the presidency once Hindenburg, er, Biden is out of the way... Hillary later gave Mitchell a pat on the head at a press conference, saying, "I love you, Andrea. You are indefatigable. You're my kind of woman, I'll tell you what."

Biden's Face Mask Is Useless
Because He Doesn't Understand How It Works

Bronson Stocking
Joe Biden is a superspreader event of germs and disinformation. It's bad enough that the poor people around him are lulled into a false sense of security by thinking Biden's fake embrace of "science" and mask-wearing is somehow protecting them. But it'll be much worse if voters buy into Biden's quackery and he becomes president.

Wind Industry Burying Millions of Toxic Turbine Blades In Landfills

Solar panels are a veritable toxic cocktail of gallium arsenide, tellurium, silver, crystalline silicon, lead, cadmium, and heavy earth material. Then there's the landfill legacy being created by wind turbine blades, with the First World cynically using the Third World as its dumping ground.

Here's Why Three Astronauts Have Endorsed
McSally and Not Mark Kelly

Three former astronauts are endorsing Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) in her special election battle against astronaut and Democratic challenger Mark Kelly. The astronauts say that while McSally has a record of accomplishments to point to, Kelly's positions remain largely unknown. The three are accusing Kelly of hiding his left-wing agenda behind the word "astronaut."
The Shy Trump Vote Is Bigger This Year...and
Who Falls into This Category Should Terrify Democrats

Suburban white women and urban black women are the two groups that are most likely to fall into the shy category for the 2020 cycle. That latter part should shake Democrats to their core. And as for Florida, a state that Biden must carry, it could already be out of his reach.
'White Supremacist' Suspect in Michigan Kidnapping Plot is
Actually a Trump-Hating Anarchist

A new video of one of the 13 men arrested and charged in an alleged kidnapping plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer shows the suspect is a Trump-hating anarchist despite media claims the plot was hatched by pro-Trump white supremacists. "You know Trump is not your friend, dude," said Brandon Caserta, with a large anarchist flag hanging on his wall behind him. "And it amazes me that people actually, like, believe that."
Sweating It: Renewable Energy Crisis Means Australians
Can't Run Air-Conditioners During Heatwaves

Once upon a time Australians enjoyed reliable and affordable power, but that was before heavily subsidized and chaotically intermittent wind and solar entered the scene. Now Australians are being told to turn off their air conditioners and/or to leave home and go back to work in order to keep the grid from a total 'system blackout'.

Greeley, CO, Nursing Home Residents Protest Pandemic Lockdown:
"I'd rather die of COVID than loneliness"

Waving signs that read such things as "I'd rather die of COVID than loneliness," and "We are prisoners in our home," residents of one nursing facility staged their own anti-lockdown protest along one of the busiest streets in Greeley, directly across the street from the city's largest and longest operating hospital. "Freedom, freedom, freedom," one lady chanted while waving a sign that read "we want our families back."
Netflix Indicted in Texas Over
'Cuties' Movie's 'Prurient Interest in Sex'

The indictment against Netflix comes following outrage over the film's release in September. Hundreds of critics called out the film's sexualization of young girls in various scenes throughout the movie, particularly ones in which they copy an older dance group's sexual moves and another in which one 11-year-old member of the dance troupe takes photos of her genitals, although no nudity is actually showcased.

As City Budgets Shrink, It's Time to Rethink Recycling Programs
Howard Husock and John Tierney 
The COVID recession has caused tax revenues to plummet, forcing cities and states to make painful budget cuts. But as they struggle to fund schools, parks, public safety, and other essential services, there's one simple and painless way for governments to save money: Rethink recycling.
Trump Thanks Supporters Gathered Outside Hospital:
'I'm about to make a little surprise visit'

President Trump tweeted out a video of himself at Walter Reed Medical Center on Sunday where he said he's learned a lot about the novel coronavirus and promised his supporters gathered out side the hospital "a little surprise." "We're going to pay a little surprise to some of the great patriots that we have," Trump said. "They've been out there for a long time and they've got Trump flags and they love our country so I'm not telling anybody but you but I'm about to make a little surprise visit."
Trump Runs the Country from Walter Reed as Biden Calls Another Lid
Matt Margolis
President Trump doesn’t seem to be letting his COVID-19 diagnosis slow him down. According to reports, he’s still working hard at his job. But Joe Biden, once again, called a lid at 9:16 a.m. Eastern Time on Sunday morning. President Trump himself reported that he was still doing the work of the American people while at Walter Reed. “I had to be out front. This is America. This is the United States. This is the greatest country in the world.
Rep. McCarthy Rips Pelosi for 'unbecoming' Reaction to
Trump Coronavirus Diagnosis: 'rather disgusting'

GOP Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy argued there should be more consideration for the well-being of President Trump and others following the commander in chief's coronavirus diagnosis. “This is uncalled for, especially in this time and place,” he said. “Other nations are watching America. This is the one time we could unite together… [Trump] is sitting here trying to work with this speaker to get a COVID relief package together and these are the comments that she makes? It’s really unbecoming of that position.”
New CDC Coronavirus Survival Rates
Torches the Democrats' Lockdown Regime

Matt Vespa
A new CDC study on COVID survival rates just wrecked the Democrats' lockdown protocols – and Joe Biden's plans for a new national lockdown. Why? Well, because the survivability rate for almost everyone, even the elderly is 90+ percent.

The Pandemic On Biden's Watch
Killed 13 Times As Many Children As COVID

I & I Editorial Board
Imagine the reaction of the public to a new virus outbreak that targeted children, sending 10 times as many to hospitals, and killing 13 times as many as COVID-19. Would you call the government's handling of this pandemic a success? That is what happened in 2009 when the H1N1 – aka, the swine flu – pandemic swept across the land. Despite these scary statistics, the message back in 2009 was "be calm."
INADMISSIBLE: Trump Bans
Chinese Communist Party Members from Immigrating to America

"U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has announced that any 'intending immigrant who is a member or affiliate of the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party (or subdivision or affiliate), domestic or foreign, is INADMISSIBLE to the United States.'" The policy change, occurring October 2nd, would therefore apply to members of the Chinese Communist Party.

Schumer and Senate Democrats Oppose Legislation Ensuring
Protections for Pre-Existing Conditions

Senate Democrats voted against legislation on Wednesday night that would guarantee insurance coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions. The Protect Act, introduced by Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) and co-sponsored by a host of other GOP Senators, was originally introduced in 2019 and brought back for a procedural vote by Leader McConnell on Wednesday night. Democrats consistently claim that Republicans hope to deny coverage to individuals who have pre-existing conditions, but Wednesday night’s vote says otherwise.
Here's What the Media's "White Supremacy Hoax" is All About
David Blackmon
No American president has denounced racism and "white supremacist" groups as often or as definitively as President Donald Trump has done over the past four years. Yet, this past week we were all treated to yet another Democrat/media hoax that desperately attempted to portray this President as a racist and white supremacist.

Trump Condemns White Supremacy – Media Says Not Often Enough
Andrew Moran
Former Vice President Joe Biden stated, not too long ago: "We choose truth over fact." Though he may not have been aware, Biden was echoing a tenet of Fourth Estate orthodoxy: abandon facts in favor of its version of the truth. From the 'fine people hoax' to condemning white supremacists, the media's affinity for fake news, out-of-context reporting, and hatred of the president are on display whenever activists-turned-journalists utter the man's name.

Black Professor Insists
'Proud Boys aren't white supremacists' as Trump Takes Flak

It turns out not everybody believes the Proud Boys are white supremacists, including a prominent Black professor at a historically Black university. Wilfred Reilly, associate professor of political science at Kentucky State University, said Wednesday that "the Proud Boys aren't white supremacists," describing the right-wing group's beliefs as "Western chauvinist" and noting that their international chairman, Enrique Tarrio, is Black.

On Wednesday, Lin Wood announced he would sue Democratic nominee Joe Biden for libel after the candidate released an ad suggesting that his client, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, is a "white supremacist" responsible for violence in Kenosha, Wisc. Wood has represented Nick Sandmann, the Covington Catholic High School graduate repeatedly defamed by the legacy media after the March for Life last year.
Flashback!
Joe’s Eulogy for His Good Friend, Former Cyclops Sen Byrd

Joe Biden was a good friend of the late Senator Robert C. Byrd. He eulogized Byrd at his funeral, claiming ‘Bob’ “elevated” the Senate. Biden left out the part where Byrd “exalted” the KKK. He called former KKK Byrd the “embodiment” of his state. [You had to be a Democrat to be a member of the KKK]
Black Appraisals of Black Lives Matter – Part I
Soeren Kern
"While it might not be popular to say in the wake of the recent social disorder, the true plight of black people has little or nothing to do with the police or what has been called 'systemic racism.' Instead, we need to look at the responsibilities of those running our big cities." – Walter E. Williams, professor of economics at George Mason University.

Black Appraisals of Black Lives Matter – Part II
Soeren Kern
"BLM are basically, in my opinion, profiteers. They are profiting on trying to give a narrative, a false narrative, that is: 'white racist cops are destroying the black community.' No BLM presence walking through Chicago protesting black-on-black crime. You know why? Because it is not profitable. There is no money to be made." – Leo Terrell, civil rights attorney and lifelong Democrat.
Parents Outraged After Ohio High School Football Game
Turns into a BLM Rally

Paula Bolyard
Parents attending a football game at Lakewood High School in suburban Cleveland, Ohio, were outraged when someone took to the public address system before the game to declare that the school would henceforth be an "agent of change" in combatting "systemic" racism in "society as a whole." A source close to the situation told PJ Media that Lakewood police are furious about the political stunt and are threatening to pull security from the football games until they receive an apology.
Democrat Heavy Hitters in House Urge
Return of Spending Bill Earmarks

Two of the most influential House Democrats said Thursday that the chamber should bring back earmarks next year, saying a de facto prohibition on "congressionally directed spending" gives too much power to the executive branch. Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 House Democrat, and James E. Clyburn of South Carolina, the party whip and third-ranking Democrat, told the Rules Committee that earmarks should be restored with "safeguards" Democrats instituted in 2007 and expanded two years later.
Another very good reason to deny Dems control of the U.S. House.

Newsom's Stupid Gas-Powered Car Ban Draws EPA Rebuke
Steve Berman
EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler wrote in a letter to Newsom, citing California's power deficits and emergency requests to other states to meet its electric demand, raising the question "how you expect to run an electric car fleet that will come with significant increases in electricity demand, when you can't even keep the lights on today?"
Virginia Forces Christian Ministries to
Adopt 'Government Ideology' or Pay $100K

Three Christian schools and a Christian network of pregnancy centers are suing Attorney General Mark Herring (D-Va.) in order to prevent Virginia from implementing two pro-LGBT laws that force "people of faith to adopt a particular government ideology under threat of punishment." The two laws purport to prevent "discrimination" against LGBT people but, in reality, they force Christian ministries to choose between violating their sincerely held religious beliefs or paying hefty fines, as much as $100,000 per offense.

'Fast Tests' that Could Be Saving Lives

James Anthony
At first glance, recent headlines on fast tests look like great news: "U.S. Approves Abbott Labs $5 Rapid Covid-19 Test For 'Mass Scale' Use"; "White House Signs $750 Million Deal with Abbott Labs to Buy 150 Million Rapid Coronavirus Tests." It is great news that there's a test. It's also terrible news that fast tests are controlled fully by bureaucrats instead of freely-deciding customers and business people.
'Game Changer': Trump Targets Virus Tests to Black People,

Democrats Made the Supreme Court Too Important.
Now They're Panicking and Paying the Price.

Bryan Preston
The Democrats and their base are panicking as if their world is about to end because one justice out of nine died at the age of 87. Their situation, and their panic, are entirely their fault. For decades, the Democrats used the courts including the Supreme Court as a super-legislature. They have systematically misused our courts to impose policy the voters wisely would not give them.
Trump Supporters Are Having All the Fun
Don Surber
Biden supporters aren't having fun because they don't exist. If they existed, he would have won in Iowa and New Hampshire instead of finishing fourth. Oh, there will be people who vote for Biden. Millions of them. But they are voting against President Donald John Trump, not for anyone. They have no candidate, and that is not fun because they have no team really.
Faith and Family: A Look at Judge Amy Coney Barrett
Amy Coney Barrett received a shocking introduction to Washington politics when she faced off with Democratic senators in 2017 at her confirmation hearing to sit on the 7th circuit U-S Court of Appeals. At issue was her religious beliefs. Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., told her bluntly, "The dogma lives loudly within you, and that's of concern." Barrett's response was measured but on point:  "If you're asking whether I take my Catholic faith seriously, I do, though I would stress that my personal church affiliation or my religious belief would not bear on the discharge of my duties as a judge."
GOP Fights Back Against Attacks on
Amy Coney Barrett’s Adopted Children

So much for keeping kids out of politics. Liberals on social media are questioning whether two children adopted by President Trump’s expected Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, were adopted legitimately -- as Senate Republicans leaped to defend her. “Some adoptions from Haiti were legit. Many were sketchy as hell,” wrote a Democratic activist and former Capitol Hill staffer, Dana Houle,
Fewer Than 1 Percent of Students, Teachers

Researchers found that only 0.23 percent of students and 0.51 percent of teachers had confirmed or suspected cases of the virus. For confirmed cases specifically, the rate fell even lower with only 0.076 percent of students infected and 0.15 percent of educators. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, said this early data has indicated that school reopenings haven't been as risky as previously thought.

Biden Was Briefed About Son's Involvement,
According to Hunter Biden Burisma Report

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has "not spoken accurately about his knowledge of his son's involvement in Burisma" or the problem it caused for the Obama administration, Fox News contributor Molly Hemingway said Wednesday night. Reacting to the mainstream media and Democrats downplaying the report by two U.S. Senate committees on Hunter Biden's overseas dealings while his father was vice president, the Federalist senior editor said there is "truly breaking news" in the report.
DOJ Investigating How FBI Handled Allegations of

U.S. Attorney John Durham, who was assigned to lead the investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election, "has sought documents and interviews about how federal law enforcement officials handled an investigation around the same time into allegations of political corruption at the Clinton Foundation, according to people familiar with the matter," the Times reported.
Durham Looked Into Clinton Foundation
Aspects of U.S. Attorney John Huber's investigation into the Clinton Foundation have been assumed by U.S. Attorney John Durham as part of his review into the origins of the Russia probe, Fox News has learned. A source familiar with Durham's investigation told Fox News on Thursday that parts of what Huber was investigating in 2017 – involving the Clinton Foundation – have been incorporated in Durham's investigation.
The New York Times
Just Gave Definitive Proof the '1619 Project' is a Fraud

Last year, the New York Times launched its "1619 Project" with much fanfare. The project aimed to flip American history on its head, arguing that the "true founding" did not come with the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, but with the arrival of the first slaves to Virginia on August 20, 1619. Slightly more than a year after the project launched, however, the New York Times threw the 1619 Project's central claim down the memory hole. The Times stealth-edited the 1619 Project's website, removing claims about the founding.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has found a number of mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania discarded in the trash. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded.  Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time. Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot. All nine ballots were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump."

 Five Republican senators, led by Kelly Loeffler (Ga.), have introduced legislation to protect women and girls in sports from biological males who claim to be transgender "females" and seek to participate in women's sports.
