  • Candace Owens (video) - I DO NOT support George Floyd and I refuse to see him as a martyr!

    Candace Facebook video via Youtube ^ | June 4, 2020 | Candace Owens
    Figured this was already posted but Alas! I don't see it in keyword search. Candace hasn't said much yet ... in this ... she says a lot - she takes the black community to task very fairly and with facts and reason. It's very heartfelt though, rather than standard media political argument/debate or take down of the other side -> often online or in interviews she's playing 'conservative political influencer / celebrity', but this is more natural, I think one of her best if not best.

    Federal law enforcement officials are probing whether "criminal actors" are coordinating violent activities during protests and are looking into reports that "rocks and bricks" have been dropped off to throw at police and other law enforcement as cities across the country grapple with the uptick in violence, a senior Justice Department official said. "You see the hallmarks... We're trying to see if there's a coordinated command and control, you see those bread crumbs and that's what we're trying to verify," the DOJ official said. Another DOJ official said the feds have seen signs of "very organized" coordination from "professional" agitators,...

    Townhall ^ | 06/03/2020 | Kurt Schlichter
    This riot crisis will pass, and then it’s nothing but bad choices ahead for Badfinger Biden, not that he realizes it. He’s too far gone and far too busy watching his stories on the tee-vee to negotiate the crucial strategic decisions he faces if he wants to win. Even if not he has not already disembarked the short bus in Seniletown, he’s at least wandering aimlessly through its suburbs. The calls he has to make – about reacting to the failing Antifa/Democrat insurrection, about picking a veep, and about how to handle the only guy who seemed to grow younger,...
  • The Lancet casts doubt over its own Hydroxychloroquine study

    06/03/2020 9:15:51 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 10 replies
    The Lancet has issued an "expression of concern" over a large-scale study of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine it published that led to the World Health Organization suspending clinical trials of the anti-viral drugs as a potential treatment for COVID-19. In a statement, the medical journal acknowledged "important" questions over the research, after dozens of scientists issued an open letter last week raising concerns about its methodology and transparency around the data, which was provided by the firm Surgisphere. "Although an independent audit of the provenance and validity of the data has been commissioned by the authors not affiliated with Surgisphere and...

    Last Person to Receive a Civil War Pension Dies at 90The Department of Veterans Affairs' motto is "to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan." The meaning of those words was perhaps never more apparent than in the case of Irene Triplett, who died Tuesday from surgical complications following a fall at a North Carolina nursing home, according to The Wall Street Journal. She was the last person to receive a pension from a veteran's Civil War service. Her father, Mose Triplett, fought on both sides of the Civil War, first...

    DebraMessing I already covered one fake photo today. Now the left claim President Donald Trump held a Bible yesterday as Hitler did during his reign of terror. It was photoshopped. Why would people fall for this? Hitler hated religion. Then again. Someone like Debra MessingÂ…not surprising. Craig Silverman at BuzzFeed made sure to correct Messing and everyone else. Craig Silverman A lot of people are sharing an image that appears to show Trump and Hitler holding a bible in the same way. The Trump pic is from June 1, but the Hitler pic was photoshopped to add the bible.Guess what....

    George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis has revived the Obama-era narrative that law enforcement is endemically racist. On Friday, Barack Obama tweeted that for millions of black Americans, being treated differently by the criminal justice system on account of race is “tragically, painfully, maddeningly ‘normal.’ ”

    Legal Insurrection ^ | June 3, 2020 | William A. Jacobson
    I haven’t had much time to reflect on the looting and riots that swept mostly (but not exclusively) large Democrat cities. It was a wilding on a scale we’ve never seen. It was a bloodletting and release of criminal fury. We should be clear what is happening. It is not protest over the death of George Floyd. That is the spark, but not the fire. This has been a long time coming. At least a generation, maybe two. The left methodically has taken control of key institutions to implement an anti-American, anti-Capitalist agenda. You send your kids to public schools...

    Activists of the far-left Antifa movement began planning to foment a nationwide anti-government insurgency as early as November as the U.S. presidential campaign season kicked off in earnest, according to a law enforcement official with access to intelligence behind the shadowy group. . . . “Their Marxist ideology seeks not only to influence elections in the short term but to destroy the use of elections as the determining factor in political legitimacy.” Added Joe Myers, a former Defense Intelligence Agency official and counterinsurgency expert, “President Trump’s election and revitalization of America are a threat to Antifa’s nihilist goals.

    A man angry with teenagers who reportedly threw items at his car was captured on video emerging from his vehicle with a double-bladed, wrist-strapped weapon — quickly dubbed a “wolverine claw” online — in Whitestone, Queens, Wednesday afternoon. The footage, shared by NBC New York reporter Myles Miller, shows a man shouting at the youths before turning his grey SUV around to drive up to them. The man is seen quickly exiting his vehicle and chasing down one of the young men as he asks, “You want to throw shit like that?” while pointing the weapon at him.

    The Washington Post is reporting that Trump and his family were “rushed” to the bunker beneath the White House Friday after some protesters breached a fence outside. The security move came after multiple people crossed over fences that had been erected to create a larger barrier around the White House complex around 7 p.m.Secret Service officers detained at least four protesters, who were charged with unlawful entry at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, according to arrest records. The incident took place near the border between the White House lawn and Treasury Department, about 350 feet from the East Wing, and close...

    A fascinating result considering how he was polling after his fateful impeachment vote. I’ll give you three theories to explain it. A new 2News survey shows 56 percent of Utah voters either “strongly” or “somewhat” approve of Romney’s job performance. 42 percent say they disapprove. Romney is in a strong political position right now with a net positive approval of +14.That’s a massive reversal from our previous survey in March when just 36 percent of Utahns approved of Romney’s job performance, while 49 percent disapproved…69 percent of “strong” Republicans disapprove of how Romney is handling his job, but...
