  • A Tale of Two People Without Masks – Trump vs. Gov. Ralph Northam – and the Different Media Treatment

    Some in media flipped out today that President Donald Trump dared to go golfing for the first time in months since the pandemic really changed habits. On top of media chastising him for going golfing, as we reported, CNN played the Karen mask police and called him out for not wearing a mask on the golf course playing in the open air, a ridiculous thing to be concerned about...Meanwhile, there’s Governor Ralph Northam in Virginia. He’s considering enforcing a mask law...But Northam was out in Virginia Beach today without a mask, apparently without social distancing, very close to people.

    A Portland restaurateur has announced that he will close not one, but all of his five restaurants because of COVID-19. David Machado, a hotel-based restaurateur, will be permanently closing the rooftop bar Altabira City Tavern, Citizen Baker, Italian restaurant Nel Centro, Pullman Wine Bar and Merchant, and Northwestern bistro Tanner Creek Tavern. “There’s no pathway back to a viable business,” Machado says, referencing the many hurdles that the restaurants will likely face if reopened. There are a few factors that make David Machado Restaurants especially vulnerable to the perils of reopening — perhaps most obvious is that all of them...

    ...Giving a “one-finger salute” to the filing of the Petition, Judge Sullivan enters an Order setting a briefing schedule for the filing of opposition and reply briefs on the issues before the Court as set forth in the DOJ motion to dismiss, setting a hearing date nearly two months away. The next morning the Circuit Court of Appeals ORDERS the district judge to personally respond to the Petition for Writ of Mandamus and address the issue of whether he has any discretion on the question of granting the motion to dismiss the case...Judge Sullivan has hired the very experienced and...
  • Study: A majority of the population may have 'some degree' of preexisting immunity to COVID-19

    A new study from scientists in the United States suggests that a significant majority of the population may already have some level of immunity to the coronavirus, a possible explanation for why so many individuals seem to experience few to no symptoms from the disease. The study, written by researchers in California, New York and North Carolina and soon to be published in the journal Cell, discovered that certain types of cells in blood samples taken from donors in 2015-2018—well before COVID-19 arose—were reactive against the COVID-19 virus. In other words, those blood samples were at least partially immune from...
  • The Flynn Saga Seems Too Complex? Read This

    American Greatness ^ | May 21, 2020 | Adam Mill
    Author Robert Fulghum once wrote, “All I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate-school mountain, but there in the sandpile at Sunday School.” In the exceedingly complex tale of the Michael Flynn prosecution, it’s easy to drown in the details. But it helps to remember that many of the principles of due process and fairness enshrined in our Constitution actually spring from our common experience in the court of kindergarten. Many of us can recall with bitterness a...

    Andrew Davis Web on Wordpress ^ | May 23, 2020 | Andrew Davis
    We are roughly two months into Coronamania, and it seems already a new local legend has been born. We’ve all seen him at this point. He’s your coworker, your neighbor, maybe he’s even your cousin. He’s the middle aged man driving in his car alone with a mask on. All joking aside, I’ve seen dozens of people doing this over the past few weeks, and it got me thinking. Why? While I like to think I’ve taken the virus fairly seriously and acted responsibly, I fail to understand the mindset of the most ardent faction of quarantiners...Sadly, I think there...

    While browing the Internet today, I came across a very telling chart. It is based on official government data, and was complied by USAFacts.org. Take a look: Here’s what you need to know about it: The white areas have seen zero cases of the Wuhan Virus; The red areas – major cities in the northeast and midwest – have seen as many cases as the yellow areas, which are basically the metro areas surrounding those big cities; The green and white areas – about 98% of the U.S. landmass – have seen roughly the same number of Wuhan Virus cases...
  • Fake News Gonna Fake – CBC Caught Using Photo From Ukraine In 2016 To Describe A Baby Suffering From Kawasaki Disease Linked To Coronavirus

    At the end of March CBS News painted a dire picture from New York City this week in their coronavirus coverage. CBS aired a “terrifying” footage from a New York hospital. Of course, that was fake news because they used a video from an Italian hospital. There was no need to add that footage except to stoke panic. Video comparison from the two news outlets. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWm0ytokzOI&feature=emb_title https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_J60fQr0GWo&feature=emb_title They did answer a few days later and confirmed that it was an editor’s mistake! But that wasn’t enough they now try to creat panic using children. They were caught using a photo...

    The argument for outdoor face masks is terrible when it comes to science, but very much a matter of culture. And that's where the split between Republicans and Democrats gets interesting. Fifty-two percent of Republican voters support mandatory face masks in some type of public spaces, with 27 percent saying both indoor and outdoor, and 25 percent saying indoor only. Eighty-one percent of Democrats support mandatory face masks in some public capacity, including 52 percent for both indoor and outdoor spaces and 31 percent for indoors only.

  • Another Dr. Fauci Lie Debunked – “Mysterious Inflammatory Condition” in Children Is Typical Every Year in 13 of 100,000 Children in Study

    ...Dr. Andrew Bostom reported on this rare inflammatory condition in children earlier this month...."Thus, even after Sen. Paul resoundingly debunked Fauci’s opening presentation alarmism, the NIAID Director had the temerity to raise the specter of “Kawasaki Syndrome” in children with covid-19, completely de-contextualizing this uncommon, and generally transient inflammatory condition’s well-established association to all manner of respiratory infections each year—including otherwise rather benign human coronaviruses that cause 15-30% of common colds! For example, a 2016 study published in one of the pre-eminent childhood illness journals, Pediatrics, found that 42% of 192 children admitted with Kawasaki Syndrome had a detectable respiratory...

    If this surprises you, you haven’t been paying attention. – Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan, under fire for his bizarre conduct of the case involving the framing of General Mike Flynn, will not be filing his own response to the DC Circuit Court of Appeals’ order for him to explain himself by Friday. Instead, the Washington Post reports that he has taken the extraordinary step of hiring “a high-profile lawyer” to do that for him: The federal judge who refused a Justice Department request to immediately drop the prosecution of former Trump adviser Michael Flynn has hired a high-profile trial lawyer...

    Ukraine was in the center of attention after an audiotape has been released by a Ukrainian politician which details conversations between corrupt and discredited former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden. John Kerry is also on the audio tape. The men discuss the firing of then Prosecutor Shokin for corrupt reasons, in order to prevent an investigation into Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and other criminal actions. Today Ukraine is again trending on the internet as member of the parliament was found dead with a gunshot in the head. Ukrainian parliamentarian Valeriy Davydenko, who is a member...

    Liberty Unyielding ^ | May 23, 2020 | J.E. Dyer
    In the last article on this topic, we looked at how unlikely it is that the well-synchronized story of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and the FBI leakers from early 2017 is actually true. My own assessment is that the FBI is indeed the agency that reported the Kislyak-Flynn phone calls to the other Obamagate principals. But it’s very improbable that the FBI had to go hunt the phone calls down, in response to a community-wide appeal inserted in the presidential daily briefing (PDB) on 30 December 2016. There’s really no scenario in which that claim makes sense. But it especially...

    Breitbart ^ | May 22, 2020 | Joel B. Pollack
    ...Barr warmed against “a tit for tat exercise,” politicizing justice or “lower[ing] the standards” just to punish Obama for doing the same. “Not every abuse of power, no matter how outrageous, is necessarily a federal crime,” he cautioned. Still, if the goal is to restore public confidence in the justice system, the only way is to wipe the slate clean. And the only way to do that would be for Trump to pardon Obama and Biden, preemptively, for the sake of national unity. It would, of course, drive Obama, Biden, the Democrats, and the media crazy. Pardoning Obama and Biden...

    Obama wanted to systematically change America, well, keep electing people like Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib and it will happen. But this change won’t be good for the real Americans! Obama might be gone but his legacy lives on. We all know that we are a country that is based on freedom and diversity but the left has gone too far! Everyone should express their religion as long as they don’t interfere with our way of living. Culver City is the latest city that has to put up with the enormously loud Islamic call to prayer 5 times a day...

    June used to be one of the best times of the year, it was warm enough to go to the beach, and everyone started having backward parties and cookouts. That is until the month of June was hijacked by gay liberal activist groups like GLAAD who want every company in America to ‘celebrate LGBTQ+ P For Pedopfile Pride Month‘. This year, the rainbow colored Skittles candy will go gray, and a dollar for every pack sold will be donated to GLAAD. Hmm, so I guess of you buy a pack of gray Skittles you are donating by proxy to a...

    CNN waited 12 hours to cover Joe Biden’s “you ain’t black” comment — while ABC, CBS, and NBC averaged only one minute of discussion about his shocking remarks. During an appearance on the Breakfast Club radio show on Friday, the presumptive Democrat nominee told the black host, Charlamagne Tha God, that if you choose Trump over him, “you ain’t black.” The comment rapidly went viral and drew condemnation from both sides of the aisle. But mainstream media cover-up and Biden’s racist comments are not new. In 2006 Biden said: “You can’t go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin Donuts unless...

    At my local grocery store this week picking up items to help restock a local pregnancy center, I came across an older man looking distressed at the many options of expensive formula in front of him. I asked if he needed help to find what he was looking for, because I know that can be overwhelming. I’ve got eight kids and have spent many hours doing the same thing. He said he knew what he needed but it was so darn expensive. Yes, it is, I said. He told me he needed to get it for his daughter, who was...

    The word I keep hearing is numbness. Not necessarily a sickness, but feeling ill at ease. A sort of detachment or removal from reality. Deb Hawkins, a tech analyst in Michigan, describes the feeling of being stuck at home during the coronavirus pandemic as “sleep-walking through my life” or “wading through a physical and mental quicksand.” Even though she has been living in what she calls an “introvert heaven” for the past two months—at home with her family, grateful they are in good health—her brain has dissented. “I feel like I have two modes,” Hawkins says: “barely functioning and boiling...
