  • BASKETBALL: REMEMBERING WES UNSELD (March 14, 1946 – June 2, 2020)

    When people ask me to name my favorite athlete of all time, I give two names: Wes Unseld and Sonny Jurgensen. If pressed, I go with Big Wes because he delivered a championship to Washington, D.C. and because of what he meant to the community off the court. Unseld died today at the age of 74. The cause of death was “complications from pneumonia.” You have to be really old to remember Unseld as a basketball superstar. In his senior year at Louisville, he averaged 23 points per game, with a .613 field goal percentage, and led Louisville to...

    My personal musings ^ | 6/3/20 | Pontiac
    Over the past few months, I have been watching the Gotham series on Netflix. I have come to see parallels in the series’ plot to events now taking place. The machinations in the series of the League of Shadows and Ra’s al Ghul to bring down Gotham by creating chaos in the city seem to parallel the machinations of the Democrat Party. I see that the Democrat Party and their surrogates, Black Live Matter and ANTIFA appear to be doing exactly that on a much larger scale across the United States. The governors (especially Democrats) are ignoring their duty to...
  • Video: Woman Kneels on Demand in the Street to Apologize For Her “White Privilege”

    Summit News ^ | June 2, 2020 | Paul Joseph Watson
    A video clip shows a woman immediately obeying a black man’s request to kneel on her feet in the street and apologize for her “white privilege”. Yes, really. It’s possible that the man, who introduces himself to her as a member of Black Lives Matter, is trolling, but her reaction is priceless nonetheless. “I work for Black Lives Matter…but since I work for that company my CEO has told me to come out today and to bring you on your knees because you have white privilege, so if they see that a white person is getting on their knees, that...

    A pair of front-line doctors in Italy battling COVID-19, which hit the nation hard, killing thousands, now say the coronavirus either “clinically no longer exists,” or is greatly weakened. “In reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy,” Alberto Zangrillo, the head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, said, according to Reuters.“The swabs that were performed over the last 10 days showed a viral load in quantitative terms that was absolutely infinitesimal compared to the ones carried out a month or two months ago,” he told RAI television.Matteo Bassetti, the director of the infectious diseases clinic of the...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | June 3, 2020 | Staff
    Voters are more critical of the police response to the latest outburst of black protest nationwide but also tend to agree with President Trump that the so-called “antifa” movement thought to be behind much of the violence should be labeled as terrorists. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters think the “antifa" movement should be designated a terrorist organization. Thirty percent (30%) disagree, while 22% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)...

    The absentee Mayor has worn out his welcome in NYC. Crowds are now officially calling for him to get out of Dodge. DeBlasio resign It hasn’t been a good week for Bill DeBlasio. They probably liked him better back in May 2019 when he was too busy deluding himself that he could be President to show up for work as Mayor. He did less harm then. DeBlasio hasn’t exactly been covering himself in glory, lately. He’s still stinging from his terrible management of the Wuhan Coronavirus health crisis in NYC. (He and Cuomo both have much to answer for...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | June 2, 2020 | Todd Herman
    ...Antifa has never had to hide in Seattle, Portland or the rest of the West Coast. When the news media is forced to mention them at all, they obligingly call them “anti-fascists”, which, this week, useful idiots have been touting on Twitter as proof that being against Antifa means one is for fascism, to which I have replied, “why are you against ‘Making America Great Again?” Antifa loves guns, they have a militia arm and they have practiced seizing civilian infrastructure, part of Phase Two on Mao’s rules for Insurgencies In notoriously anti-Second Amendment Seattle, Antifa open-carried. They commandeered a...

    How to square the circle of insisting on social distancing to fight the spread of COVID-19 while supporting large-scale protests? Public-health experts are here to help, as is Shannon Paulus of Slate. “Public Health Experts Say the Pandemic Is Exactly Why Protests Must Continue,” reads the headline to the story, which notably lacks anyone who is willing to say that the protests will reduce the death toll from the disease or even to deny that it will increase them. The central claim, rather, is that racism is (quoting one of the experts) “one of the more dangerous infectious diseases” and...

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    So many items of WINNING news today it’s hard to know where to start. How about this: The ADP private sector jobs report for May is in, and although it’s a big negative number, it’s still positive news in the context of this whole self-imposed Wuhan Virus recession. The ADP number for May came in at a net jobs loss of 2.76 million, which is obviously a depressing number. But – and it’s a big BUT – the consensus of projections by the so-called experts in this field had predicted a loss of 8.663 million jobs, almost 6 million more...
  • Asian Americans need to talk about anti-blackness in our communities

    Vox ^ | June 3, 2020 | Rachel Ramirez
    As protests against police brutality continue to erupt across the nation and world, one particular conversation is taking place within the Asian American community: Tou Thao, the Hmong police officer who watched as his white colleague, Derek Chauvin, killed a black man, George Floyd, by holding his knee against Floyd’s neck for several minutes. Thao’s presence at the grisly scene has sparked significant discourse on anti-blackness within the Asian community. Across social media, many Asian Americans are calling for solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, while others are criticizing protesters for the unrest that’s blanketing the country. These outpours...

    A march through the streets of Portland in protest of the death of George Floyd, a black man who died while in Minneapolis police custody, turned into a fiery, violent downtown riot, with damage and looters at several locations. The Multnomah County Justice Center in downtown Portland was set on fire. That fire was put out. At least one other fire was started in the area of Southwest 4th Avenue and Main Street. There were scenes of Dumpster fires, vandalism, and widespread looting at Pioneer Place Mall. All in all, they destroyed everything that came in their way. A disabled...

    New York Times Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Nikole Hannah-Jones attempted to justify the ruthless rioting terrorizing American cities Tuesday by claiming simply, “property can be replaced.” “Violence is when an agent of the state kneels on a man’s neck until all of the life is leached out of his body,” Hannah-Jones said on CBS News. “Destroying property, which can be replaced, is not violence.”

    The hypocrisy of mega-rich celebrities calling for reparations for slavery is astonishing. Black Entertainment Television Founder Robert Johnson, as summarized by CNBC, said that the “U.S. government should provide $14 trillion of reparations for slavery to help reduce racial inequality.” He’s currently worth an estimated $550 million.

    Sorry America. We hate to break it to you but you’ve been had. Those horrible projections made about the coronavirus, were wrong – way wrong. We’re not saying that the elderly were not at risk. We never did. If New York, New Jersey, Michigan and other Democrat led states would have protected their elderly in the same manner as Republican-led Florida, then you would never had seen the death tolls in those states that you did. By forcing coronavirus infected individuals into the elderly homes, the leaders of states like New York murdered the elderly in those institutions.What we are...

    The party affiliation of U.S. big city mayors tells an interesting story. The list can be viewed on wikipedia if you google "U.S. mayors 50 biggest cities" ... unlike metropolitan area populations, this list goes strictly by the populations within the cities. Democrats are mayors in 35 of these cities, Republicans in thirteen and independents in two. Rather than listing all the cities run by Democrats, it is all but these: Republicans are mayors in San Diego, Jacksonville, Fort Worth, El Paso, Oklahoma City, Fresno, Mesa, Colorado Springs, Omaha, Miami, Tulsa, Virginia Beach and Arlington TX. Independents are mayors of...

    Red State Nation ^ | 06.03.2020 | Sarah Hall
    Thousands of people across the US have flooded the streets to protest police violence in the wake of George Floyd’s death. But as protesters confront police brutality, some are concerned that some protesters are being needlessly aggressive. In several videos circulating on social media, protesters deface, destroy property, or steal things from shop owners. President Donald Trump has blamed some of the protests on Antifa, an umbrella term for anti-fascists, and has sought to designate it as a domestic terrorist group. Attorney General William Barr has also blamed Antifa and “groups of outside radicals and agitators” for “riots” at the...

    LetÂ’s revisit one of the Campaign UpdateÂ’s recurring themes, which is that the corrupt national news media establishment, like the Democrat Party, represents a true existential threat to our countryÂ’s survival in its current form. If we cannot find some means of holding these disloyal and destructive media outlets accountable for their systemic and pernicious false reporting, and do it soon, then the United States will descend into chaos and possibly a second Civil War. Mollie Hemingway put it bluntly in a tweet yesterday: Mollie âś” @MZHemingway The disconnect between reality and media coverage is disorienting, angering, terrifying. 46.8K 7:57...

    CNN's Don Lemon likened the fear of "looters" today is like the fear African-Americans felt of lynching in the 1960s. On CNN Tuesday night, Lemon said that what we are witnessing is insurrection, in the context that people getting tired of not being listened to fuels the demonstrations that Americans have been watching. Lemon warned that a real insurrection could happen "because no one wants to change.""Pain and fear. Pain and fear," Lemon said on CNN. "Listen, I know people are afraid. They see the people out on the streets. They're not afraid of the legitimate protesters, but they're afraid...

    As protests over George Floyd’s death spread across the country, officials have blamed the violent nature of some demonstrations on members of a controversial group known as Antifa. President Donald Trump on Sunday said the United States would designate Antifa a terrorist organization, and he received huge support for his intentions! But it seems that American patriots had enough of having their stores burned and their cities destroyed. Antifa tried to riot in Yucaipa, California but their actions were not so well received. The patriotic citizens decide to defend themself and this could be a lesson for every violent rioter...
