"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. . .

America’s Founding Was Greatest Anti-Slavery Movement in History
Thomas Krannawitter
The United States was not founded as a regime of institutionalized racism, tribalism, or injustice. Intrinsic to the founding principles of this country, America institutionalized freedom, institutionalized opportunity, and institutionalized justice... Slavery is old. Slavery is older than human history, stretching back thousands of years to prehistoric times, before written historical records were kept.

The Strategies of Dementia Politics
Victor Davis Hanson
Joe Biden is tragically suffering a mental eclipse and sliding away at a geometric rate. Understandably, his handlers have kept him out of sight. He stays off the campaign trail on the pretext of the virus and his age-related susceptibility to COVID-19 morbidity. Often Biden cannot finish a sentence. Names are vague eddies in his mind's river of forgetfulness. He is in a far more dire mental state than a physically failing FDR was in his 1944 campaign for a fourth term.

A Republic v. A Democracy

Hydroxychloroquine Helped Save Coronavirus Patients, Study Shows;
Trump Campaign Hails 'Fantastic News'

Researchers at the Henry Ford Health System in Southeast Michigan have found that early administration of the drug hydroxychloroquine makes hospitalized patients substantially less likely to die. The study, published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases, determined that hydroxychloroquine provided a "66% hazard ratio reduction," and hydroxychloroquine?and azithromycin a 71 percent reduction, compared to neither treatment.

CNN Admits Hydroxychloroquine Works…
After Countless Needless Deaths

Court Anderson
The tawdry, malicious, partisan, anti-science subterfuge perpetrated by the left has run into a wall. A wall so thick that even purveyors of DNC narrative such as CNN have to admit it. Finally. Now that the race is 99% over and hundreds of thousands of dead bodies fill graves around the world. Trump was right. Hydroxychloroquine works. The much maligned, 70 year-old antimalarial drug is highly effective in combating COVID-19.
Massive Fraud Uncovered as CDC Grossly Overcounting COVID-19 Cases Causing States to Keep Their Economies Closed
The CDC is over counting the number of China coronavirus cases in an apparent effort to keep the country shut down throughout the summer... By including both active cases with cases of individuals who had the China coronavirus in the past, the CDC is grossly overstating the number of active cases in the U.S.
Labor Secretary Scalia Optimistic About Economy Resurgence,
But Warns Precautions Still Needed

"I believe that we can continue to reopen workplaces safely," Scalia said. He made clear, however, that this is only if people take proper precautions. Scalia specifically said people need to wear masks and practice social distancing, or economic growth will be more challenging.
Black Lives Matter: "We Are Trained Marxists" – Part I
Soeren Kern
A recent survey by the Pew Research Center found that more than two-thirds of Americans support the Black Lives Matter movement. The high level of backing raises the question of how much the public knows about BLM. On the surface, BLM presents itself as a grassroots movement dedicated to the noble tasks of fighting racism and police brutality. A deeper dive shows that BLM is a Marxist revolutionary movement aimed at transforming the United States – and the entire world – into a communist dystopia.

Trump Defends U.S. History,
Blasts 'radical left' in 'Salute to America' Celebration

In a Fourth of July speech at the White House in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and racial unrest, Trump made a full-throated defense of America's past and said he won't allow an "angry mob" to tear down statues, "indoctrinate our children" or "trample" freedoms. "We are now in the process of defeating the radical left," Trump said to hundreds at the White House lawn Independence Day celebration. "The Marxists. The anarchists. The agitators. The looters, and people who in many instances, have absolutely no clue what they are doing."
Modern Slavery and Woke Hypocrisy
Judith Bergman
BLM and its sycophants endlessly debate changing the names of streets and universities, and removing statues, all of which do not amount to anything more than infantile virtue signaling. To engage in all this posturing, while ignoring the staggering 40 million current victims of actual slavery, not only represents the immeasurable depths of woke hypocrisy, but constitutes an extreme insult to those who are suffering their slavery in silence...
Harvard Senior Video of Her Saying She'll Stab and Watch Bleed Out the Next Person with 'Caucasity' to Say All Lives Matter is a Joke
A Black Lives Matter TikTok video by Harvard Senior Claira Janover in which she threatens to stab and watch bleed out "the next person who has the sheer nerve, the sheer entitled caucasity to say 'all lives matter'" went viral Tuesday in spite of a disclaimer Janover posted under the video stating "for legal reasons this is a joke".
Feds Arrest 'ringleader' in Attack On Andrew Jackson Statue
Law enforcement sources tell Fox News that Jason Charter was arrested at his residence Thursday morning, without incident, and charged with destruction of federal property. He was arrested by the FBI and U.S. Park Police as part of a joint task force. These sources add that Charter has connections to Antifa and was in a leadership role on the night of June 22 when a large group of protesters tried to pull down the statue.
Washington Post Mocked for Claiming Trump was Wrong
About Violence in Dem-run Cities: 'Worst Fact Check Ever'

The Washington Post was lampooned over the weekend for running a story claiming to disprove President Trump's statement that most violence occurs in cities run by Democrats, but the data essentially backed up the president's case and the paper ran it anyway.
Former Fox News Reporter Rams Dagger into
Heart of Taliban-Russia Story Used to Attack Trump

Matt Vespa
As the left-wing engages in a coordinated and wide-ranging campaign on things they find problematic, especially when it comes to American history, the liberal media decided to show once again that they fall for anything relating to Russia. After two-plus years of peddling the Trump-Russia collusion myth, they decided to get another one going regarding the Taliban being paid by some super-secret Russian intelligence unit to kill Americans. It's bounty gate: Afghanistan edition…except that it's fake news trash.
It's Time to Stop Virtue Signaling About Russia and Face Reality
Over the weekend, another supposed bombshell dropped in the New York Times. A single anonymous source claimed that the Trump administration is in possession of intelligence showing that Russia put bounties on U.S. troops in Afghanistan. For their part, the White House has denied the report and said that the President, nor the Vice President were ever briefed on such a claim.
I'm Leaving Seattle for Texas So My Employees Can Be Free:
Billion Dollar Business Owner

I'm moving my business headquarters off the West Coast. We tried San Francisco. We tried the Seattle area. Both were wonderful in their own ways, especially in natural beauty and personal friendships. But both have become hostile to the principles and policies that enable people to live abundantly in the broadest sense... The best places to be in tech have now become some of the worst places to raise a family, practice a faith, or even think freely. This hurts my team and the business.
Green New Deal, Pandemic Tactics, and a
Renewed Freedom Movement

Tom DeWeese
The global forces are working hard behind the scenes to develop a plan to train activists, elected officials, and the complicit news media to launch an all-out drive to impose the Green New Deal at every level of American government. They intend to use the tactics they have learned from the Coronavirus lockdown. Fear is the key.
Biden and Dems Are Set to Abolish the Suburbs
Stanley Kurtz
President Trump had a great riff at his rally the other day in Phoenix. It was all about "abolish," about how the Left wants to abolish the police, ICE, bail, even borders. Trump's riff is effective because it is true. The Left has gone off the deep end, and they're taking the Democrats with them. Well, there's another "abolish" the president can add to his list, and it just might be enough to tip the scales this November. Joe Biden and the Democrats want to abolish America's suburbs.

Pelosi Asked to Stop China Daily Distribution to Hill Offices

Now we find the Speaker of the House, San Fran Nan is using her office to promote the Chinese Communist by giving every member of Congress the mouthpiece for the Communists – China Daily.
Momentum Building in States to Require
Campus 'Intellectual Diversity'

Mark Hemingway
In March of last year, President Trump issued an executive order making federal research funding contingent on universities having adequate free speech protections. At the state level, Texas last year became the 17th state since 2015 to enact legislation protecting First Amendment rights on campus. Currently, the conservative National Association of Scholars is working with four states – Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, and Arizona – to go further: pass laws to increase "intellectual diversity" at public universities.
Germany's Continuing Anti-Semitism Problem
Judith Bergman
German statistics on anti-Semitism, however, have been the object of criticism for quite some time: "The majority of [antisemitism] cases in Berlin are attributed to right-wing extremists – without evidence... For a long time, experts have criticized the attribution of the majority of cases to far-right perpetrators... and that too little attention is paid to other groups of perpetrators, such as those from Islamist and other Muslim circles".
Voters Strongly Support Mount Rushmore, Historic Statues
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 75% of Likely U.S. Voters do not believe that Mount Rushmore should be closed or changed because two of the four presidents it honors – George Washington and Thomas Jefferson – were slave owners. Seventeen percent (17%) believe the iconic memorial in South Dakota should be closed or changed.
Landmark Victory for Parents In U.S.
Supreme Court School Choice Case

In a landmark 5-4 ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that a state court may not strike down a school choice program simply because it permits families to choose religious schooling. In Espinoza v. Montana Department of Revenue, the Court held that barring religious options in school choice programs violates the First Amendment's protections for religious liberty.

The Future of Western Civilization is Imperiled by Mob Rule.
Now is the Time for Courage and Leadership.

Jarrett Stepman
Now, on a daily basis, we see scenes of lawless mobs attacking and tearing down statues, and defacing monuments of every type -- often as authorities stand idly by. But this violence has hardly been reserved just for statues. After toppling a statue of an abolitionist who gave his life to the cause as a member of the Union Army, a mob in Madison, Wisconsin, mercilessly beat a Wisconsin Democrat state senator who supported the protests.
Throw the Book at the Rioters
The Only Cause Advanced by Rioting is Authoritarianism.

Robert Tracinski
This isn't a spontaneous act of anger. It is a theory of how to achieve political change, and there is a full court press right now to get America to accept assault, looting, and arson as normal and acceptable forms of political activism. We should take a moment to think what that actually means. It means that argument, debate, and voting would be replaced as the means for making political decisions with a kick to the teeth. Persuasion would be replaced by terror.
Thoughts on the Current Crisis
Larry P. Arnn – President, Hillsdale College
As I write, I am not confident that I know whether all of the current economic shutdowns in the United States are necessary to stop the virus. Every hour I read some authoritative person saying yes, and the next hour I read some authoritative person saying no. What I am confident about is that we were not prepared for this pandemic, and yet we spend an enormous amount of money on a centralized bureaucracy that now operates top down...
A Brief History of Antifa: Part II
Antifa in the United States

Soeren Kern
"They're coming from other cities. That cost money. They didn't do this on their own. Somebody's paying for this.... What Antifa is doing is they're basically hijacking the black community as their army. They instigate, they antagonize, they get these young black men and women to go out there and do stupid things, and then they disappear off into the sunset." – Bernard Kerik, former commissioner of the New York City Police Department.
Jerry Nadler Says Antifa is Imaginary
Sadly it's not Rep. Jerrold Nadler who is imaginary. He is a powerful Congressional Democrat. On Thursday, Nadler (D-NY) took a break from trying to overturn the 2016 election and spoke on the House floor. During his address, Nadler called the domestic terror group, Antifa an "imaginary" thing. Justifiably he got absolutely shredded by GOP representatives for his idiotic statement.
Cuomo, de Blasio Wrong to Limit Worship Services,
Condone Mass Protests says Federal Judge

Three Minneapolis City Council Members Who Voted to
Defund Police Are Getting Taxpayer-Funded Private Security

On Friday. the Minneapolis City Council took the first formal step toward abolishing the police department in their city, by voting for a measure to abolish the police...

The company, which publishes the Wall Street Journal and the Times of London, among other papers, has complained to regulators around the world that Google is abusing its power in the $330 billion digital ad market and siphoning revenue that should be going to media companies.
NYT Finds Themselves in a Blunder
Over Their Botched Russia-Taliban Story

Members of the American intelligence community have concluded that members of the Russian intelligence unit offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants if they successfully killed members of the American military, the New York Times reported. The problem, however, is that almost everyone involved in this story says it isn't true. The White House, Russia and even the Taliban have said the Times' story is false.
FBI Says Noose Found In Bubba Wallace's Stall
Had Been There Since 2019

A noose reportedly found in the stall of NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace had been there since October 2019, according to the FBI. The FBI concluded Tuesday evening that no federal crime had been committed, and that nobody could have known which garage Wallace would be assigned to ahead of the Geico 500.

NASCAR Videos Show
Multiple 'nooses' Before Bubba Wallace Incident

Though the FBI concluded that a noose found in driver Bubba Wallace's garage at Talladega Superspeedway was not a hate crime aimed at NASCAR's most prominent black driver, official NASCAR videos reviewed by The Post show multiple nooses being used as garage door pulls at the same racetrack in 2017 – and at least one in 2019.

Someone Needs to Pay the Price for NASCAR's Noose Fiasco
Miranda Devine
It was never true that a "noose" was deliberately placed, as a racist threat, in the Alabama garage stall of Bubba Wallace, the only black full-time driver on the NASCAR circuit. "There was no hate crime" NASCAR boss Steve Phelps admitted Tuesday after 48 hours of incendiary hysteria. No kidding.
The Problem Isn't Bubba Wallace, or a Noose…
the Problem Is the Media

Kira Davis
This is a story of how progressive/legacy media has formed a rabidly destructive partnership with social media, resulting in inflamed divisions and an information famine. This is a story of how our current state of constant rage is not only cheered on by legacy media but, in fact, is generated by them as well.
Judicial Watch Reveals Obama Admin. Lied About Benghazi
Several weeks after an attack in Benghazi left four Americans dead, Obama official Ben Rhodes sent an email detailing how the administration would manipulate the intelligence.

"They plan to make the District of Columbia a state – that'd give them two new Democratic senators – Puerto Rico a state, that would give them two more new Democratic senators... So this is full bore socialism on the march in the House. and yeah, as long as I'm the majority leader of the Senate, none of that stuff is going anywhere," he said. McConnell also referred to efforts like expanding the Supreme Court, the Green New Deal, and Medicare for all, as evidence of the Democrat's radical socialist agenda.

Tulsa Athletic Says It Won't Play National Anthem At Games
The Tulsa Athletic soccer team announced Wednesday that it will replace the national anthem with Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" for the remainder of its home matches. "After carefully reviewing 'The Star-Spangled Banner' lyrics and meaning, including the third verse which mentions 'No refuge could save the hireling and slave / From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave…,' Tulsa Athletic came to the decision that the song does not align with the club's core values," the club, which competes in the semi-pro National Premier Soccer League, said in a statement.

Not satisfied with toppling the statues of America's Founding Fathers, some left-wing activists have now set their eyes on replacing America's national anthem.

The daily spectacle of angry mobs pulling down statues, taunting police, attacking passersby, and taking over entire city blocks makes it seem like Black Lives Matter is a mass movement, that pretty much everyone except knuckle-dragging Trump supporters is on board with its radical agenda, and that the new national consensus is that you're either anti-racist or racist. Under these conditions, many ordinary Americans feel disoriented and discouraged. Confusion abounds.
Supreme Court Sides with Trump Administration
On Process to Remove Asylum Seekers

The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that the expedited removal of illegal immigrants apprehended near the U.S. border does not violate the Constitution. The court upheld the government's ability to deport illegal immigrants on an expedited basis, if they are found within two weeks of entering the country and are less than 100 miles from the border.

Craig Bannister
On Friday, House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi appeared to forget what President Donald Trump and Republicans did that prompted her to accuse them of being complicit in the "murder" of Minnesotan George Floyd. While explaining why she wouldn't retract her claim, Pelosi first forgot what was in the Senate Republicans' police reform bill that offended her – then, she couldn't even recall what Trump did to draw her ire, saying, "Then, the president comes out with his – whatever it is, saying, uh, uh"…

GOP’s McCarthy: Pelosi Can Remove Confederate Portraits,
But She Might Start with Her Party and Biden

As Vanderbilt University Political Science and Law Prof. Carol Swain has explained, “Since its founding in 1829, the Democratic Party has fought against every major civil rights initiative, and has a long history of discrimination. The Democratic Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, opposed Reconstruction, founded the Ku Klux Klan, imposed segregation, perpetrated lynchings, and fought against the civil rights acts of the 1950s and 1960s.”

During an interview on MSNBC about Campaign 2020, Ambassador Susan Rice, the former national security adviser to President Barack Obama, stressed that Joe Biden needs to win the election because he is the leader who can "consign" Trump and his Senate supporters to the "trash heap of history." The "trash heap of history" or "ash heap of history" is a popular phrase that goes back centuries. However, it was often used by Soviet officials during the Cold War to explain what they would do to the Christian West.

That sound you just heard was millions of liberal brains blowing a circuit breaker. Trayvon Martin is a secular saint, and you can't question anything his family says or you're a racist.
Declassified Intelligence Community Annex on the Steele Dossier
Proves the FBI Misled Trump and Obama

Sean Davis
The declassified Steele dossier annex, which was attached to the full ICA at the demand of the FBI, is noteworthy both for what it included and what it refused to disclose about the dossier and its author. Although the debunked dossier was jointly funded by the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, the FBI never disclosed that information in the annex. The FBI did not disclose that the allegations were funded by a political opponent of the incoming president...
Primary Steele Dossier Source Remains Elusive
Six Months After Scathing Watchdog Report

The source, referred to as "Primary Sub-Source" in the watchdog report, is likely key to unraveling exactly how Steele came to peddle inaccurate information regarding Donald Trump and the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russia. But the Justice Department, FBI, and Steele have all withheld key details about the source.
There need to be some firings
China's Long Tentacles Extend Deep Into American Media
One unfortunate casualty of media consolidation could be the objectivity of news at a time of rising tensions with China. According to Gallup, public approval of the media's response to the coronavirus pandemic is the lowest out of the nine institutions surveyed, the only net negative on the list. Many more Americans approve of the president's response... many media companies either do business with China or are paid by the government in some way.
WSJ Analysis: 1,300 Chinese Medical Suppliers
Use Fake U.S. Address

At least 1,300 registered Chinese medical device companies have listed CCTC Service Inc. in Delaware as its U.S. agent, although the company uses a false address and does not have a working phone number, reports the Wall Street Journal. The Journal's findings highlight flaws in the FDA's medical device database and shows gaps in the FDA's coronavirus response program.
Harvard Chairman Indicted for Lying About
$1.5M Chinese Research Scheme

The chairman of Harvard University's chemistry department was indicted on charges he lied to US government officials about his work for a Chinese technology school while receiving federal research funds, according to the Justice Department. Charles Lieber was indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts of making false statements about his association with Wuhan University of Technology...
A Brief History of Antifa: Part I
Soeren Kern
Empirical and anecdotal evidence shows that Antifa is, in fact, highly networked, well-funded and has a global presence. It has a flat organizational structure with dozens and possibly hundreds of local groups. Antifa's stated long-term objective, both in America and abroad, is to establish a communist world order. In the United States, Antifa's immediate aim is to bring about the demise of the Trump administration.
Donations to Black Lives Matter Go to 'ActBlue' –
The Activist Arm of the Democrat Party

Elizabeth Vaughn
A young woman suffering from white guilt called a friend of mine to ask what "ActBlue" was? Planning to contribute to Black Lives Matter, she went to their website and clicked on the bright blue "donate" button. She was immediately redirected to ActBlue, which is the activist arm of the Democrat Party... The Democrats have set up a well-organized, highly-developed and exceptionally effective fundraising system which allows them to escape accountability.
DOJ Files Dozens Of Charges Against Floyd Rioters.
Catherine Herridge Got Her Hands On Them.

Jon Dougherty
The Justice Department has begun filing scores of charges against rioters who used the George Floyd incident to loot, burn, and cause damage around the country, including in the nation's capital. As reported by CBS News investigative correspondent , charges range from planting explosives, arson, damage to historical property, illegal firearms possession, damage to police vehicles, and in one case, pointing a laser at a law enforcement aircraft, which could have blinded pilots and caused them to crash.
The Monuments to the Framers of The Southern Manifesto of 1956
Lee Cary
As Confederate flags come down, so should the monuments that honor the Democrat politicians who overwhelmingly supported The Southern Manifesto of 1956. The Southern Manifesto – officially entitled The Decision of the Supreme Court in the School Cases Declaration of Constitutional Principles – was signed by 101 members of the U.S. Congress, including 19 senators and 82 members of the House of Representatives. Ninety-nine of them were Democrats.
Data: 100K Mail-In Ballot Applications Returned as
'Undeliverable' in Rhode Island

Overall, about one-in-eight mail-in ballot applications that were sent out, unsolicited, by Rhode Island state officials were returned and deemed undeliverable. This means that in the June 2 election, about 12.5 percent of the nearly 780,000 mail-in ballot applications sent to registered voters had to be sent back to state officials for being undeliverable. As Breitbart News has reported, more than 2.1 million mail-in ballots have been deemed undeliverable in the 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2018 elections. Since 2012, more than 28 million mail-in ballots have gone missing.
Truck Drivers Say They Won't Deliver to Cities with
Defunded Police Departments

As cities across the country are discussing defunding or disbanding their police departments, truck drivers are voicing concerns of safety. Seventy-seven percent of truck drivers say they will refuse to deliver freight to cities with defunded police departments. Truck driving is historically ranked as one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. In 2018, U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic reported truck driving as the most deadly job in the country.
Cities must decide what is 'essential'
Public Health 'Professionals' Keep Showing
How Unprofessional They Really Are

Betsy Mccaughey
Sadly, science is losing its luster as the profession puts politics ahead of the truth. Last week, two prestigious medical journals, The Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine, which until recently set the gold standard for scientific publications, had to retract articles they had published on -hydroxychloroquine. Both had dispensed with rigorous peer review to rush out articles purporting to show that President Trump's favored COVID-19 drug endangers patients. They were so eager to ridicule Trump they ended up discrediting themselves.
Former DEA Official Pleads Guilty to Elaborate
$4 Million Fraud Scheme

A former Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) public affairs officer pleaded guilty today to defrauding at least a dozen companies of over $4.4 million by posing falsely as a covert officer of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Garrison Kenneth Courtney, 44, of Tampa, Florida, pleaded guilty before Senior U.S. District Judge Liam O'Grady. Sentencing has been scheduled for Oct. 23, 2020.
Nancy Pelosi Pilfers Church Genuflexion As Her Personal Prop
Judi McLeod
Until National Football League (NFL) San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick popularized it, and until Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi swiped it as part of her props arsenal, "taking the knee" was the universal genuflexion as a sign of respect to the Almighty in churches. Dozens of sports stars adopted activist Kaepernick's taking the knee, a practice that continues to the present day. Only savvy Catholic blogger Ann Barnhardt seemed to notice how Pelosi hijacked the universal church genuflexion as her own.
Some would call it Heresy
Ignore the Optics. Trump's Executive Order Could Jump-Start the
Cause of Global Religious Freedom.

The second sentence of the executive order contains words that these advocates have been waiting for years to hear a president utter: "Religious freedom for all people worldwide is a foreign policy priority of the United States, and the United States will respect and vigorously promote this freedom." Why are these words important? The answer lies in the previous sentence: "Religious freedom, America's first freedom, is a moral and national security imperative."
There's an Effort to Get Me Fired at Cornell for
Criticizing the Black Lives Matter Movement

William A. Jacobson 
There is an effort underway to get me fired at Cornell Law School, where I've worked since November 2007, or if not fired, at least denounced publicly by the school. Ever since I started Legal Insurrection in October 2008, it's been an awkward relationship given the overwhelmingly liberal faculty and atmosphere. Living as a conservative on a liberal campus is like being the mouse waiting for the cat to pounce.

Cornell Professors Declare "Informed Commentary"
Criticizing the Protests as Racism

Jonathan Turley
A letter by his colleagues is a chilling reminder of the rapid loss of free speech values on campuses around the United States. It is the antipathy of the intellectual foundations for higher education. Rather than address the merits of arguments, you attack those with opposing views personally and viciously. That has become a standard approach to critics on our campuses. Unless you agree with the actions of the movement, you are per se racist.
Dr. Birx Says George Floyd Protests Have Resulted in the
Destruction of 70 Covid-19 Testing Sites

Dr. Deborah Birx, President Trump's coronavirus response coordinator, warned the nation's governors on a conference call that 70 coronavirus testing sites had been destroyed amid widespread protests in the wake of the death of George Floyd. During the Monday call, a recording of which was obtained by the Daily Beast, Birx said governors should "scramble now to make sure there is testing available in urban areas."
Surprisingly the MSM ignore the story
Andrew Cuomo Complains That Looters Are Getting Out of Jail –
His Bail Reform Opened the Door

Democratic New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is pushing for looters to be charged with bail-eligible crimes – after his sweeping bail reforms made that all but impossible. New York's bail reforms, which took effect January 1 of this year, removed the option of cash bail for a number of misdemeanors and non-violent felonies – which included stealing from stores or looting, which is classified as "burglary in the third degree."
America Has a Nobility Problem, and
It Means Our Leaders Don't Pay for Their Failures

Glenn Reynolds
Politicians and bureaucrats are America's ruling class and they should start paying a price for failure. Accountability isn't just for little guys. … The continued use of titles that in fact were briefly loaned by the people – "Governor," "Madame Secretary" – is the least of this. The single biggest characteristic of today's nobility is impunity, and – just as with the privileges associated with titles of nobility in the England our Framers rejected – this privilege extends not only to the titled, but to their retainers, in this case police and other government bureaucrats.
Yes, Let's Defund the Police … At the EPA
I & I Editorial Board
Democrats have met the enemy, and it is the police. Well, not all police. They love the heavily armed federal police at agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency... Meanwhile, Democrats around the country have been talking about defunding the police, with some proposing to shift resources from law enforcement to social services. But none has proposed imposing similar restrictions on federal officers. And no Democrat is talking about defunding them.
Trump and Barr Fooled Them All
Brian Cates
While the Democrats and the media anticipated getting the optics they so desperately craved of Trump sending in soldiers with bayonets fixed charging at the "peaceful protesters," what they got instead was the sudden appearance of a bunch of federal tactical units from the FBI, the Secret Service, the DEA, ATF, the U.S. Marshals Service, the Bureau of Prisons, and other agencies, in full gear, many with no rifles, and certainly no bayonets.
Ohio House Considers 'stand your ground' Bill;
Some Citizens Say it's a Racist Legal Concept

Legalized lynching. Citizens' license to kill. Codification of black men's deaths. These were just a few of the characterizations people offered to the Ohio House Criminal Justice Committee of a "stand your ground" proposal that lawmakers reviewed Tuesday. Starting in the afternoon and continuing well into the evening, a steady stream of citizens implored lawmakers to nix the proposal.
Teacher Spying on Student During Virtual Class Sends Cops to Search 11-Year-Old's Home After Spotting a BB Gun
A Baltimore County, Md., fifth-grader got a visit from the police after his teacher called to report that she had seen a BB gun on the wall behind the student during a class video call. The boy's mother, Courtney Lancaster Sperry, a Navy veteran, is warning other parents about a lack of privacy during virtual classes after her son was targeted by a teacher who saw what she thought was a scary-looking gun hanging on the wall of the boy's bedroom.

CONFIRMED: Vandal Behind Racist Graffiti at
Salisbury University … is Black

Salisbury University experienced massive racial unrest after a series of racist graffiti was discovered on campus over the course of the 2019-20 school year. The public, Maryland-based university canceled classes for a "day of healing" and hired a new associate vice president for diversity and inclusion at a cost of $140,000 annually.
'Zoom Bombers' Are Still Blasting Private Meetings with
Disturbing and Graphic Content

On a Thursday evening in late April, 27-year-old economist Christian dialled into a Zoom meeting for a Berlin think-tank. Around 60 people joined the regular get-together, discussing policy responses to the pandemic. At 7:40PM, mystery user "Christoph H." burst into the conference. Christian finds it difficult to speak about what he and other participants were forced to watch in the following seconds. "It was just sick," he said. Christoph H. played a video depicting a young girl being raped. Christian estimates she was about four years old.

It's Past Time to Examine How
Police Unions Protect Bad Cops

John Fund
Maybe it's finally time to consider the role that police unions play in perpetuating police brutality. Mayor de Blasio has frequently tangled with his city's powerful unions, but he's never challenged their vast political power. And make no mistake, that power is often used to cover up and deflect charges of police misconduct.
The Target of the Lockdown and the Riots
Don Surber
As Democrats riot and loot in cities across the country – sanctioned by Democrat mayors who refuse to arrest the hooligans – Americans now realize what a sham social distancing. The unconstitutional lockdown goes unenforced in Detroit, which is Michigan's hotspot while Governor Gretchen Whitmer insists on locking down the Upper Peninsula and the rest of the state.
What if D-Day Had Failed?
Carlo D'Este
What if D-Day Had Failed? June 6, 2005: A Look Back at What Might Have Been... This chilling scenario and its dire consequences is all the more reason to reflect – and to marvel – at the success of the remarkable event which took place in Normandy that fateful June day in 1944 when valiant soldiers, sailors and airmen changed the course of history.
Sen. Graham Refuses to Let FISA Abuse Get Pinned On
Low-Level FBI Staff:: 'I believe it goes to the very top'

Sen. Lindsey Graham says that he plans on calling former FBI Director James Comey and former deputy director Andrew McCabe to testify before his Senate Judiciary Committee, because he doubts they were unaware the dossier compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele had been debunked before it was used to get a FISA warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Ron Johnson Gains Authority to Subpoena Dozens of
Trump-Russia Investigators in Party-Line Vote

"America has long been admired for its peaceful transitions of power," Johnson said on Thursday. "However, evidence is mounting that this is not what happened in the transition between the Obama and Trump administrations. The undisputed examples that support that statement include the fact that the DNC and the Clinton campaign paid for fabricated foreign research, the Steele Dossier, that was used to instigate an FBI investigation against the Trump campaign and obtain FISA warrants."
Russia Developing Coronavirus Treatment That
Disinfects the Body With UV Light from Inside

Scientists in Russia are developing a treatment for coronavirus that uses ultraviolet (UV) light to disinfect the body from the inside, Andrei Goverdovsky, from state nuclear agency Rosatom, has said. "So far, no one has managed to hold UV disinfection inside a person," he said. "We figured out how to do this. We select molecules and gas components that when inhaled remain activated and emit ultraviolet light directly in the lungs.
Trump was called an idiot and much worse.
Dr. Marc Siegel on Faulty Hydroxychloroquine Data:
'This is a political hit job'

A database by Surgisphere Corp. of Chicago was used in an observational study of nearly 100,000 patients that appeared May 22 in The Lancet, an influential medical journal. The study tied the malaria drugs hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to a higher risk of death in hospitalized patients with the virus. The validity of the data, however, has been called into question. The Guardian reports that Surgisphere "has so far failed to adequately explain its data or methodology" and says the company's "handful of employees appear to include a science fiction writer and an adult-content model."
Trump Derangement Syndrome at The Lancet
Kyle Smith
Remember when we were told that the administration of Donald J. Trump posed a pernicious threat to science and medicine? In an attempt to sharpshoot Trump's most famous scientific claim, one of the world's leading medical journals just blew off its own foot. What other possible explanation can there be for the catastrophic failure of The Lancet's thunderously hyped anti-hydroxychloroquine article, which this week was retracted after it was revealed to be unsubstantiated, if not a full-on hoax?
This now makes future Lancet claims dubious
U.S. Shocks Economists by Adding 2.5 Million Jobs in May as
Unemployment Declines to 13.3%

The surprise increase came on the heels of the record 20.5 million jobs lost in April. The unemployment rate declined to 13.3%, bucking forecasts of a near-record 19% rate... "Today's data suggests that the US economy is more resilient than expected," said Seema Shah, chief strategist at Principal Global Investors. "Certainly the initial signs suggest that the reopening of economies has already started to heal the labor market."
The Media's Riot Defenders
Washington Free Beacon Editors
The Times now publishes calls for defunding police nationwide. The editorial board on which Rosenthal once sat cannot muster a denunciation free of qualifiers and compromise. In place of clear-eyed condemnations comes the incessant refrain that rioting and looting are lamentable, but the result of legitimate grievance. Those same grievances, they argue, can only be addressed through aggressive federal investigations, the stripping of legal protections for cops and, of course, voting for Democrats.
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey Rejects City Council's Push to
Defund Police, Despite Veto-Proof Majority

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey on Sunday reiterated that he doesn't support abolishing the city's police force, hours after a veto-proof majority of members of the Minneapolis City Council said they want to take that drastic step in the wake of the in-custody death of George Floyd. Frey, who has danced with protesters and ordered a police station to evacuate as rioters burned it to the ground, was shouted down by a large gathering of demonstrators near his home on Saturday when he defied their demands to shutter the city's police forces.
Trey Gowdy: 'Defunding the Police is the
Single Dumbest Idea I've Ever Heard'

Former House Oversight Committee chairman Trey Gowdy told “Sunday Morning Futures” that “defunding the police is the single dumbest idea I've ever heard.” “Who is going to process crime scenes, arrest bad people?” Gowdy, a Fox News contributor, asked during an exclusive interview with host Maria Bartiromo. “Who is going to enforce any law, child sex abuse, homicide? Who is going to do it if it's not the police?”
Armed ‘Patriots’ Patrol Coeur d’Alene, Idaho Streets
Prevent Riot Destruction Similar to Nearby Spokane

Reports and rumors that groups bent on rioting and violence in Coeur d’Alene brought out men and women with guns on Monday determined to stop them if they arrive. Dan Carson was patrolling Sherman Avenue with an AR-12 semi-automatic 12-gauge across his chest, an AR-15 strapped to his back, two 9mm handguns holstered and a .38 special, too. “I heard there are some people on the way who shouldn’t be here,” he said early Monday evening.

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho Stands Up…Antifa Stands Down!
Photos Tell the Story of Regular Folks Standing Tall

If you ventured to downtown Coeur d’Alene, Idaho last night you would think you had entered a Militia family reunion. No one has an accurate count of how many heavily armed citizens came out to support peaceful protestors and protect local businesses and citizens against shipped in ANTIFA members but it was certainly HUNDREDS, perhaps over a THOUSAND.
This is how it's done!
Darkness Falls – The collapse of the rule of law across the country, intensified by Antifa radicals, is terrifying.
Heather Mac Donald
Savagery is spreading with lightning speed across the United States, with murderous assaults on police officers and civilians and the ecstatic annihilation of businesses and symbols of the state. Welcome to a real civilization-destroying pandemic, one that makes the recent saccharine exhortations to "stay safe" and the deployment of police officers to enforce outdoor mask-wearing seem like decadent bagatelles.
Excellent! A must read!
Mayor Moron Destroys America's Major Cities
When you reward bad behavior, expect more of it.

John C. Wohlstetter
Protesters? Earth to Minneapolis Mayor Moron: Rioters torching whole sections of your city are not protesters. Many are professional agitators from out of town. Locals who loot stores are opportunists, many of them career criminals. The city's message took zero notice of these elementary realities.
LA Mayor Garcetti Calls His Cops 'Killers.'
The 'Killers' Just Sent a Reply to the 'Unstable' Mayor

Victoria Taft
Mayors and governors across the land have run to the cameras and microphones to be among the first to kneel in supplication to the riotous mobs in the streets. They eagerly do what the Leftists at Black Lives Matter (BLM) and George Soros call for, such as defunding police departments. They call for rule changes so that cops are defanged in the face of riotous antifa and BLM mobs.
Covid vs. Climate Modeling: Cloudy With a Chance of Politics
Eric Felten, RealClearInvestigations
As the staggering social and economic costs of shutdown have become painfully clear, the failure of the models to accurately anticipate what would happen is raising questions about their use to justify life-altering public policies. If computer models projecting the near-term future of an epidemic were so wrong, what does that mean for the far more complicated computer models predicting the far-off future of the entire planet?
The Green New Deal Dress Rehearsal
Paul Driessen
More than 1.4 million cases of Wuhan Coronavirus and 106,000 deaths in the United States alone have accompanied stay-home lockdowns, businesses bankruptcies, over 40 million unemployed workers, plummeting tax revenues and unprecedented debt. Ongoing rioting, vandalism, arson and looting are compounding problems for many cities and minority communities. But where many see disaster, others see opportunity. Some want to use the crises to enact laws and welfare programs they could never get otherwise.
Molotov Cocktail-tossing Lawyers Tried to Pass Out
Firebombs to Protesters

The two attorneys busted for throwing a Molotov cocktail through a police car window during protests in Brooklyn early Saturday were trying to pass out the incendiary devices to demonstrators in the crowd, federal authorities said Monday. Brooklyn community board member Colinford Mattis, 32, and his alleged accomplice, 31-year-old Urooj Rahman, were driving around in a tan minivan near a clash between police and demonstrators at the 88th Precinct stationhouse in Fort Greene...
Former Obama Intelligence Official Helps Secure Bail for
Molotov Cocktail-Throwing NYC Lawyer

A former Obama administration intelligence official who worked in both the Departments of State and Defense has guaranteed bail for a human rights lawyer accused of firebombing a police vehicle in New York City. The former official, Salmah Rizvi, told a judge the alleged firebomber is her "best friend."

Keith Ellison's Son Declares His Support for Antifa

The son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison tweeted on Sunday that he is declaring his support for Antifa after President Trump said that his administration would be declaring it a "Terrorist Organization."
Soros-backed St. Louis Prosecutor Ensures
All Arrested Looters and Rioters Released from Jail

Back in 2018, Katy Grimes wrote about leftist billionaire George Soros funneling millions into U.S. District Attorney races across the country. Apparently, the investment is paying off now. Soros-backed Saint Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner reportedly declined to prosecute those arrested for looting and rioting. More than 30 people were released from jail.
What George Soros' DA Spending Spree Bought:
Freedom from Prosecution

Lawrence Person
It should be obvious to any observer that the Antifa riots across the country were obviously coordinated with #BlackLivesMatter marches. Both groups are funded by George Soros. Just as he spent millions to spur the Ferguson riots on, people in both Antifa and #BlackLivesMatters are obviously coordinating their nationwide attacks.
Federal Court Strikes Down Vote-By-Mail in Texas,
Citing 'Significant, Irreparable Harm'

A Federal Appeals Court has blocked an injunction that would have allowed voting by mail in Texas to expand during the coronavirus pandemic, now leaving little wiggle room for expansion in the nation's second-largest state after the Texas Supreme Court recently shot down a similar measure that was making its way through the state courts.
Examples of Anti-Semitism On Campuses Abound – Enough is Enough
Gabrielle Golenberg – USC
This January in a journalism class at the University of Southern California, my stomach was in knots as I listened to my professor say that President Donald Trump is just like Adolf Hitler. I'm not a huge Trump supporter, but the comparison made me sick to my stomach as a Jew. Making matters worse, I looked around and saw my classmates nod their heads in agreement with our professor.
J.K. Rowling Slammed for Defending Concept of Biological Sex:
 'It isn't hate to speak the truth'

"Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling faced another backlash Saturday after issuing a cheeky tweet on sex and gender that opened up a new chapter in her ongoing feud with LGBT advocates. "If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction," Rowling tweeted to her 14.5 million followers. "If sex isn’t real, the lived reality of women globally is erased. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It isn’t hate to speak the truth."
