    os Angeles School Police Chief Todd Chamberlain resigned following a decision by the school board to cut millions in funding and remove officers from campuses. Chamberlain, who stepped into the job just last year, turned in his resignation on Wednesday, according to district spokeswoman Shannon Haber, the Los Angeles Times reported. With over 35 years in law enforcement, Chamberlain made the decision one day after the school board gave in to what he called a “potentially life-threatening” choice to cut the school police budget by $25 million....Los Angeles school police chief releases powerful resignation statement after board slashes funding July...

    Three weeks ago, 100,000 gathered for LA’s BLM protests. Now, for some strange reason, the LA area is seeing a surge in coronavirus cases....Despite the fact the experts now deem that the virus can no longer be contained, California Governor Gavin Newsom is pulling the COVID-trigger. He canceled fireworks and other activities enjoyed by millions of non-protesting and social-distance-practicing Californians ahead of the July 4th holiday... Los Angeles County beaches will also be closed during the holiday. However, many good people are tired of the clearly useless and political restrictions and are beginning to push back against the new rules….including...

    [Note: I received this in an email from a friend and great American in Washington, DC today. As we head into the July 4 weekend during this difficult time for our country, it touched me, and I hope it touches you as well.] INSCRIPTIONS OF A NATION In 1994, my good friend Clint Ensign, Vice President of Sinclair Oil published a small book containing the inscriptions from the major memorials, historic buildings and structures in the nation’s capitol. He titled it: “Inscriptions of a Nation – Collected Quotations from Washington Monuments”. It was the culmination of years of effort on...

    There are no coincidences here, folks. – FBI agents working under the auspices of the DOJ’s Southern District of New York (SDNY) office arrested long-time associate of and procurer for convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislain Maxwell. Maxwell has somehow managed to remain on the lam for the last year, since Epstein himself was arrested and then likely killed a few weeks later in a New York prison. She has done that despite a supposed FBI-directed manhunt managed out of the SDNY. Hey, guess what other big news was made out of the SDNY just 11 days ago? That’s right: Attorney...

    VIDEO The reaction of much of the media to the fantastic June unemployment report reveals why they have been in overdrive recently hyping the rise in Coronavirus cases. Of course, included in those cases are asymptomatic people as well as those who have RECOVERED from COVID-19 but have antibodies in their systems. Meanwhile, if you have been following my videos, tweets, and Newsbusters reports, then you know that while the media continues to report the increased cases they RARELY reveal the very important fact that the daily death numbers are in a steep decline. Since the media is DESPERATE...

    A virtual convention is being organized for thousands of black activists in support of Black Lives Matter. The goal is to produce a list of demands for the new administration. The new political agenda will piggyback off of the mass protests following the death of George Floyd. The 2020 Black National Convention on August 28 will be held virtually with a live broadcast.

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Could Provo, Utah become ground zero? – Here’s a little experiment for you to conduct this morning. Go to Google or whatever other search engine you use and do a search on “Provo shooting.” Now, try to identify a single story on that topic from a national news media outlet. If you find one, let me know because it is not coming up on my computer. For those of you who may have missed it, on Monday, BLM rioters actually shot and almost killed a man who was attempting to escape after his car had been surrounded by thugs wielding...

    Father Theodore Rothrock from St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Carmel, Indiana was suspended this week after his condemnation of the radical Black Lives Matter protest movement. Father Ted made the mistake of comparing Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and the other nefarious acolytes of their persuasion to “serpents in the garden” whose “poison is more toxic than any pandemic we have endured.”
  • WaPo wonders: Why did decades of progressive leadership in Minneapolis create even more inequality?

    You had us at progressive leadership, Washington Post. This analysis of the abject failure of a half-century of progressive control of the Twin Cities — and for that matter, increasingly radical progressive control — carries more than a whiff of an assumption that failure was only correlative rather than causative. How could inequality have gotten worse, Tracy Jan wonders, especially when state policy also applied progressive principles to the issue?

    A Virginia General Assembly law change, which goes into effect July 1, lays out the process for any locality to take down war memorials and monuments. That law also leaves a 60-day waiting period before anything can come down. Work crews wielding a giant crane, harnesses and power tools wrested an imposing statue of Gen. Stonewall Jackson from its concrete pedestal along Richmond’s famed Monument Avenue on Wednesday, just hours after the mayor ordered the removal of all Confederate statues from city land. The Jackson statue is the latest of several dozen Confederate symbols to be removed from public land...

    The beatings will continue until morale improves. – California Governor Gavin Newsom re-implemented lockdown orders yesterday in 19 of the state’s most populous counties, as reported by Fox News: California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a new round of lockdown measures Wednesday, ordering 19 counties to close all indoor operations for several business sectors, including restaurants, as the state grapples with a resurgence of coronavirus cases. In addition to bars being forced to shut down temporarily, restaurants, wineries, movie theaters, family entertainment venues, zoos, museums and cardrooms must halt operations in selected communities, Newsom said Wednesday. Businesses can continue to operate...

    Is ANTIFA planning nationwide civil disturbances on July 4th or is it another Tik-Tok hoax? Better to be prepared, because either way, ANTIFA will be paying a visit to your town eventually. Ads like the one you see below are starting to show up on Craigslist sites all over America, and they are a rallying cry for recruitment of new ANTIFA soldiers. Where do they get the money to pay their recruits $25 dollars per hour? From the myriad George Soros NGOs that launder the money through him and to them. Here is one such ad spotted by Janette just...

    Four members of the Toledo City Council, all Democrats, were arrested and charged in a bribery scheme by federal law enforcement authorities on Tuesday. Federal prosecutors alleged that Tyrone Riley, Yvonne Harper, Larry Sykes, and Garrick Johnson, were involved in a scheme that extorted money from business owners in the Ohio city in exchange for favorable council votes. The FBI began its investigation into the council members in early 2018. Each of the accused members could face up to 10 years in prison for the bribery charges, and up to 20 years on the extortion charges. Also charged in the...

    In case you missed this bit of real news amid all of the false hysteria over COVID-19 and the fake story on the “Russia briefing” being spread by our corrupt news media, the U.S./Mexico/Canada Agreement (USMCA) took effect today. It’s a really big deal, for one reason no one likes to talk about. From today forward, Canada and Mexico will no longer be able to ship goods made in China but assembled in their countries into the U.S. free of tariffs, a practice both countries had engaged in to the huge disadvantage of the U.S. for the previous 25 years...

    Being rather unwoke, I was mystified as to why it is forbidden to utter “all lives matter” or allude in any way to the horrific frequency of black-on-black urban crime. It turns out that merely being opposed to racism is not the same as being antiracist. Who knew? “Antiracist” requires adherence to the precept that all disparities are attributable to race and only to race. Therefore, anything that distracts from, complicates, or contradicts that precept is itself a racist act, even if factually true. (The spectacular anti-intellectualism of the defective products coming out of our universities is stunning.) Once I...

    democrats desperately want the hatred, rioting and violence to continue. They are motivated to see it go on. They profit from it. To wit: Chuck Schumer Blocks GOP Measure to Condemn Defunding PoliceSenate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) blocked a measure sponsored by Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) to condemn Democrat measures to defund police departments across the country. Cruz and Cotton tried to pass the resolution to condemn measures to defund the police by unanimous consent; however, Schumer denied the Republicans’ move to gain unanimous consent. Cotton said that Schumer “must want to defund the police.” Cruz said:...
