    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...

    MADISON, WI — Empower Wisconsin has learned that Gov. Tony Evers’ power-grabbing Department of Health Services is set to soon post the names of all Wisconsin businesses that have recorded at least two COVID-19 cases. This government-sanctioned disclosure will slam a Scarlet Letter on Badger State businesses already reeling from the pandemic and state and local lockdowns, business advocates say. “Any business that is confronted with this report and suffers the unintended consequences, that’s equivalent to the old saying, Where do you go to get your good name back,” said Brandon Scholz, president and CEO of the Wisconsin Grocers Association....

    The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is essentially setting policy across the country, endlessly putting out a stream of so-called facts (that they then revise or rescind).Their latest update on COVID-19, posted on Tuesday, is a real doozy. Here’s what the CDC said in a section headlined: What do your results mean? “A positive test result shows you may have antibodies from an infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. However, there is a chance a positive result means that you have antibodies from an infection with a virus from the same family of viruses (called coronaviruses), such...

    Mainstream media show an ‘absolute refusal to grapple with the data’. Amid nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, riots, looting, and calls to defund the police, a Harvard economist has found that proactive policing saves black lives. Roland Fryer the youngest African-American professor to receive tenure in Harvard history, Fryer uses a data-driven approach on fraught social issues. He made waves four years ago with his research on use-of-force incidents by race. It found that black suspects were less likely to be shot by police than white suspects. This news wasn’t well-received by the mainstream media so they decided to ignore...

    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...

    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...

    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:...

    On January 4, Tim McCain – a 38-year-old father of two from Sylacauga, Alabama – nearly lost his life in a medical drama that began in late December. “It’s a miracle he survived,” says McCain’s wife, Brandie McCain, 39. Her husband did survive, but if he had not Tim McCain might today be considered the first COVID-19 fatality in the world...Both McCains believe Tim nearly died after experiencing an extreme medical reaction triggered by the novel coronavirus. Evidence supporting the belief Tim McCain had COVID-19 in December is convincing. First, both McCains have tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies (from the...

    So far we have only got panic and bad news from Dr. Fauci. The government’s top infectious disease expert said on Tuesday that the rate of new coronavirus infections could more than double to 100,000 a day if current outbreaks were not contained, warning that the virus’ march across the South and the West “puts the entire country at risk.” Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, offered the grim prediction while testifying on Capitol Hill, telling senators that no region of the country is safe from the virus’ resurgence. The number...

    If President Donald Trump can push his H-1B reforms into 2021, he will dramatically increase the marketplace power of U.S. college graduates, complains a top manager at the Fortune 500 business group the Conference Board. “If the [H-1B] suspension continues beyond 2020, recruiting high-quality tech workers could become much more difficult,” wrote Gad Levanon, who heads the group’s Labor Market Institute that has repeatedly recognized that a smaller supply of workers tends to raise wages and salaries. Under Forbes‘ headline, “Tech Workers Were Already Hard To Find. The H-1B Visa Suspension Just Made Recruiting Them Even Harder,” Levanon wrote: Hundreds...

    Eric Voegelin on Gnostic Modernity A previous essay to this one on José Ortega y Gasset began with the claim that the past speaks to the present more pertinently than the present speaks to itself, but that the present, in assessing itself as the culmination of human advancement, actively disdains the past and prefers to stuff its ears. The essence of the modern psyche – which Ortega explores in his Revolt of the Masses (1930) – is paradoxically to be at once emphatically assured of its knowledge and wisdom but, in Ortega’s phrase, conscientiously ignorant of anything outside its radically...
