How many Atlanta cops called in with “Blue Flu” after Devin Brosnan was charged

Townhall reports on the common-sense moves by Atlanta police in protest after police officer Devin Brosnan was charged.

On the day that Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, a Democrat, announced a felony murder charge against former Atlanta police officer Garrett Rolfe and charges against officer Devin Brosnan for the shooting of Rayshard Brooks, a large number of Atlanta cops reportedly called out sick. Police departments in the surrounding area refused requests to supplement Atlanta police unless there was an event where a police officer required emergency assistance. The mayor has since admitted that morale “is down ten-fold” among her officers.

While Atlanta cops were calling out sick en masse, officials downplayed the reports.

Atlanta Sergeant John Chafee told CBS News that “suggestions that multiple officers from each zone had walked off the job were inaccurate.” Chafee did say that eight officers resigned, five were dismissed, and three retired, sometime between June 1 and June 17. Chafee did not tell CBS News how many officers had called out since charges were announced in the Brooks shooting. But Channel 2 Actions News now knows the answer.

Around 170 officers called out sick with what’s being dubbed the “Blue Flu” in the hours and days immediately following the charges. Most of the “sick” officers worked in the downtown area where protests have taken place. On Friday, two days after the charges were announced, 90 officers called out sick, and half of those officers work in Zone 5, the zone encompassing the protests.

“The city’s response, I recall early on, seems like they downplayed those numbers. The public should know that’s a significant amount of police officers who did not come to work during that time period,” retired Atlanta police Detective Vince Velasquez told Channel 2 Action News.

“Some officers have flatly told me that they’re afraid to go to work and to answer a call and commit to a process and feel like they’re doing the right thing, feel like they’re doing their jobs, and then face not just disciplinary action, but prosecution,” Velasquez said. “This is a unique case because some of the charges that were brought up with these officers were policy violations that were turned into oath-of-office crimes that were alleged by the DA, and some of these things are completely foreign to all of us.”

I don’t blame the police for looking out for themselves

When a self-interested Democrat politician (or Republican, for that matter) comes after police, I expect police to react the same way they must when a thug grabs a gun. At these times, police must act in self defense. Of course, in this case, this does not entail shooting the lying politician, but it does involve getting out of the line of that politician’s fire.

Therefore, even as crime rises due to bad Democrat “bail reform” policies, police should make themselves scarce.

272 New York City Police officers retire in wake of George Floyd protests

Lifezette reports that 272 New York Police Department officers have sought retirement in the wake of the George Floyd protests.

Anti-police sentiments have been at an all-time high in recent weeks in the wake of the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota last month.

Now, it’s been revealed that officers in the NYPD have been retiring in droves since his passing.

The New York Post reported that since Floyd died on May 25, the NYPD has said that 272 uniformed cops have put in retirement papers.

The department added that this is a 49 percent increase from the 183 officers who filed during the same period last year.

A source inside the NYPD explained that these mass retirements could signal a coming crisis for the 36,000-member department, which has also been hit with a $1 billion budget reduction after Floyd’s death as calls to “defund the police” have grown.

“We are worried about a surge in attrition reducing our headcount beyond what we can sustain without new recruits, and are afraid the City Council has not taken the surge into account,” the source said.

Police Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch spoke out to say that officers are “at their breaking point, whether they have 20 years on the job or only two. We are all asking the same question: ‘How can we keep doing our job in this environment?’ And that is exactly what the anti-cop crowd wants. If we have no cops because no one wants to be a cop, they will have achieved their ultimate goal.”

Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, agreed by saying that an “exodus” from the NYPD has already started, adding that close to 80 of his members have recently filed for retirement, and that morale among cops is “at the lowest levels I’ve seen in 38 years.”

“People have had enough and no longer feel it’s worth risking their personal well-being for a thankless position,” Mullins said. “There is no leadership, no direction, no training for new policies,” he said.

“Department brass is paralyzed (and) too afraid to uphold their sworn oath in fear of losing their jobs. Sadly, the people of this city will soon experience what New York City was like in the 1980s.”

Many NYPD officers reportedly see themselves as collateral damage in the chaos that has ensued since Floyd was killed.

“It’s an all-out war on cops and we have no support,” said one veteran Brooklyn police officer, who is retiring next month. “I wanted to wait for my 30th anniversary in October, but the handwriting is on the wall.”

This serves as a reminder that police officers all over the country need our support now more than ever. The men and women in blue deserve better than what they are getting.

I have seen the New York Times and New York Post essays where police had libs shouting and spitting in their faces

Police should not have to put up with civilians shouting and spitting in their faces, but (as of recently) there are photographs showing that police have endured just that sort of treatment. For that, I fully support the police as they “get out of Dodge” and let the liberals stew in a lawless mess.

NYPD sees 49 percent spike in officers filing for retirement amid George Floyd unrest

Fox News corroborates other reports by showing that NYPD has seen a 49% spike in filing for retirement.

A wave of NYPD officers has filed for retirement in the weeks following George Floyd’s death on May 25, refocusing attention on police morale amid widespread protests and calls to defund law enforcement.

The NYPD told Fox News on Saturday that 272 officers have filed for retirement between Floyd’s death and June 23. That represents a 49 percent increase over the same period in 2019.

Resignations and actual retirements have remained relatively stable with 135 retirements in 2020 and 131 during the same time last year. According to the department, that’s because the recent spate of filings hasn’t been processed yet. The department saw 35 resignations in 2019 compared to 36 so far in 2020.

Hundreds of police officers have reportedly been injured as protests, at times violent, rocked the nation. That included hundreds from the NYPD as the city weighed cutting its budget and transferring funds to other programs in the city.

Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch told the New York Post that officers were at their “breaking point.”

“We are all asking the same question: ‘How can we keep doing our job in this environment?’” he said. “And that is exactly what the anti-cop crowd wants. If we have no cops because no one wants to be a cop, they will have achieved their ultimate goal.”

On Thursday, the Post reported that a Bronx precinct commander decided to quit over the NYPD’s handling of police reform. Deputy Inspector Richard Brea reportedly took issue with the department’s decision to disband its anti-crime unit.

Amid growing unrest, politicians have proposed a variety of reforms at the federal and local levels. Departments across the country have also seen a slew of firings related to controversial police encounters.

Former Atlanta Police Officer Garrett Rolfe was fired quickly after he shot and killed 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks in what some have defended as a justified use of force. After the city charged Rolfe with murder, a wave of the city’s police officers called out of work.

Those calling for reform have generally argued that the justice system is plagued by systemic racism and needs sweeping change to protect African-Americans from brutality.

On Thursday, the House of Representatives passed a large police reform proposal, which was described by its sponsor as a “victory” against police brutality.

If you read widely, you can see that it is not usually the inner-city citizen who calls for defunding the police

Most of truthful articles and unedited tweets that I see of Black Lives Matter show White women screaming and marching. A few of the articles I have read by Blacks (which, of course, I cannot find now) detail how they worry for the safety of their neighborhoods each day that the riots creep closer and more police catch the “Blue Flu.”

Therefore, I am not seeing a real movement here. This seems to be a completely forced socialist movement advocating for the end of nuclear family.

Time to defund the United Nations

UN shares Antifa flag and tells U.S. Antifa has a right to ‘Freedom of Expression’ and ‘Peaceful Assembly’

Breitbart reports on the United Nations most current sermon to America. Never mind that the majority of the nations in the United Nations are dictatorships.

UNUnited Nations “experts” slammed President Donald Trump’s call to label Antifa as a terrorist organisation, claiming it will undermine Antifa’s right of “peaceful assembly” — despite many instances of violence by the far-left anarcho-communist group.

On Friday, the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) posted the flag of Antifa on their official Twitter account, saying that a group of  human rights “experts” at the globalist organisation had expressed “profound concern over a recent statement by the U.S. Attorney-General describing Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country.”

One expert cited in the statement from the United Nations was Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism, who also works as the Board Chair of the Open Society Foundations Women Program — OSF being the plaything of left-liberal billionaire activist George Soros.

“International human rights law protects the right to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly,” said Ní Aoláin, adding that it was “regrettable that the United States has chosen to respond to the protests in a manner that undermines these fundamental rights.”

The support from the UN for the far-left group came in response to U.S. Attorney-General William Barr’s statement that violence committed by Antifa “is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly”.

Though there has been no legal action taken since President Trump’s announcement that the U.S. will designate the group as a terrorist organisation, Ní Aoláin said that “the loose use of terrorism rhetoric undermines legitimate protests and dampens freedom of expression in the United States, which has been a hallmark of U.S. constitutional values, and a beacon far beyond its shores”.

The United Nations’ criticism of the Trump Administration’s rhetoric on Antifa sparked widespread ridicule, with many calling for the U.S. to defund the international body — mimicking the leftist movement to defund the police.

The problem is that there is not much “peaceful assembly” going on with Antifa, if the United Nations has not noticed

As I have reviewed videos and read articles on the unrest in Minneapolis, Seattle, New York, Chicago, Houston, and other cities — I have not seen too much “peaceful assembly.”

Even when Harris County’s own flower-power DA Kim Ogg — who excels in releasing felons so that they can murder and murder again and who excelled further in releasing 800 “protesters” (including both those who walked into freeways and others who broke downtown windows) — has not avoided releasing the violent offenders.

Therefore, there are no “peaceful assemblers” here.

 

Behind the Blue teddy bear maker gets death threats

Teen who provides teddy bears to families of fallen heroes gets threats

Law Enforcement Today informs us that a young lady who has provided teddy bears to children of families who have experienced the loss of an officer/family member.

teen-thin-blue-line-bearsShe’s just a kid trying to help make peoples’ lives a little easier. A little less painful. And now she’s under attack for it – and her family is facing death threats.

You’ve probably heard of Megan.  Her non-profit is called Blue Line Bears.  She, with the help of her family, takes the uniforms of fallen police officers and turns them into teddy bears for the surviving family members.

In an episode of Behind the Uniforms from season one, she shared the story of how she started her non-profit to help them.

Meg is the daughter of a cop.  As such, she understands what families of law enforcement go through. In addressing why she started her company, she started with this:

“There is so much negativity aimed at police in general.”  

Sadly, the recent high school graduate is coming face to face with just how vile and depraved some people can be in their hatred for EVERY cop and ALL those who love and support them.

Recently, she posted supportive statements on her personal social media page, only to have people, many of whom she considered friends, lash out at her and her family and then block her.

The post that led to all of the horrific comments, which included things too vile to print, but wished death on her dad and other officers:

“It’s a sad day in our house, and I know many of you would understand and relate.

How do we explain to our sweet, passionate, empathetic, amazing daughter why so many people around the world hate her dad (and so many of the officers that she has met around the country) simply because of the uniform he wears?

“He’s never done any of the things he’s accused of by association. She knows that he, and the overwhelming majority, does his job with passion and integrity. She is so worried and we have no answers for her. It’s a sad day.” 

One woman commented:

“Very white of y’all to pose for a sympathy photo so you can get likes on FB. Yikes. ACAB (All Cops Are B******s).”

She felt compelled to follow that now-deleted post with this comment:

“Saying I am heartbroken is an understatement. 3 and a half years ago when I started Blue Line Bears tensions were high in the United States and police officers were under attack. I received hate comment after hate comment, most along the lines of ‘I hope your dad is the next Officer you make a bear for.’

Do you get the idea that Black Lives Matter is a lie and they are about destroying, hating, and stealing?

Do you get the idea that Black Lives Matter is just a group of angry people? Do you get the idea that maybe they just hate people they don’t look like? Do you get the idea that they are a group organized for the betterment of looters of all races?

Surely they aren’t Americans with socialist ideals. Surely socialists cannot hate America that much, can they?

Black Lives Matter declares war on Jesus

Shawn King says “White Jesus” must be taken down

With a hat tip to the Chris Salcedo Show, Breitbart quotes Black Lives Matter mouthpiece Shawn King in his claim that White depictions of Jesus promote White Supremacy and must be taken down.


shaun-king-not-blackDespite being humiliatingly excommunicated from the Black Lives Matter movement, activist Shaun King is doggedly continuing his progressive journalism, with a recent piece claiming that the festivities of Christmas and Easter are used as “tools of white supremacy.”

In an article for New York Daily News, King describes any attempts to depict Jesus as anything other than “the look of a Syrian refugee” as “nefarious.” “A white, Eurocentric Jesus may be convenient for millions,” continues King,  “but he is a lie designed to maintain the very systems of government and religious oppression that the biblical Jesus actually spoke out against.”

King is clearly not feeling the Christmas cheer. “Side by side with Easter” writes King, “It’s also the time when we’re most likely to see depictions of Jesus used as tools of white supremacy.”

King, who is still surrounded by questions regarding his true race as a result of investigations carried out by Breitbart, and who is still known to charge $7500 for speeches about race and gender, wrote that when Jesus is portrayed as a “Scandinavian sailor,” rather than a “Syrian refugee,” it’s in order to advance the “Anglo-Saxon, white supremacist agenda.”

The piece continues with a description of the historical Jesus, claiming that he looked more like “Alan Kurdi, the 3-year-old Syrian refugee whose body washed ashore and became a symbol of the migrant crisis, than a blond-haired boy.”

He concludes the piece by with a typical appeal to victimhood. “I have a hunch that the truly ethnic Jesus would have a pretty hard time around here nowadays,” King writes.

King’s attempt to racialize a figure of unity for billions is typical of Black Lives Matter. King takes the opposite approach of another King, Martin Luther King Jr, who encouraged us to see past race rather than shoehorn it into every facet of culture.

First off, there are no photographs of the real Jesus. We don’t know what he looked like.

However, we do know that the local people called him “the son of the carpenter.” Chances are that he looked like the standard dark, Middle-Eastern Jew. Chances are that he was not in the least bit White (like the Italian models who sat for the portraits by the masters of art).

Second, though, Jesus did say

“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. (John 15:18‭-‬20 NASB)

Two of the most embarrassing statements from liberals regarding the coronavirus pandemic

Featured

  1. Conservative Colin Nior captures the moment Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner tells pandemic crooks to “chill”

When I happened across the newscast of Mayor Turner telling Houston criminals the following statement, my first thought did not comport with Matthew 5:22.

Until the coronavirus is resolved, criminals take a break. Okay. Stay home, okay. Stay home and don’t commit any crimes and, that way, they are stay safe and out of jail and police officers will stay safe and can go home to their families. Okay. So, everybody, chill. Crooks, criminals, you chill. Wait until the coronavirus is over. Okay.

When I first heard Mayor Turner’s words, I feverishly went to YouTube to see if the coronavirus statements by local officials had been published by the local media. Sadly, while they may have reported on the presser, they didn’t publish it online.

Thankfully, Colin Nior (a representative of the National Rifle Association and a person with which I wholly agree) did capture and comment on the misinformed statement by the mayor. Like Mr. Nior, I find it hard to believe that Mr. Turner would think that he could reason with criminals and get them to stop their illegal actions. However, I now remember that it was Mayor Turner who told Houstonians to “ignore rumors” about flooding rains of over 50 inches (which happened with Hurricane Harvey). This is also the man who stood aside without comment as Lina Hidalgo and Jennifer Gaut released felons.

Just in case the verse slipped your mind, here it is:

But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, ‘ You good-for-nothing,’ shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell. (Matthew 5:22 NASB)

  1. Mayor de Blasio makes a statement “to all communities” that ignores recent history

As documented by a Fox News article of 30 April 2020, Mayor de Blasio made a warning that did not consider any of several recent acts.

My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed. I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups. This is about stopping disease and saving lives. Period.

Point of recent history #1: New Yorkers flock to the waterside to view Blue Angels fly over

NYC_waits_at_waterfront_for_BlueAngelsAs reported by USA Today on 28 April 2020, the Blue Angels performed a fly-over for New York City, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. One thing that was not mentioned was the crowds that amassed at the waterfront.

 

NYC_waits_at_waterfront_for_BlueAngels1Did Mayor de Blasio send his police force to break up these people since many did not observe social distancing? I cannot find a report suggesting that anyone was arrested.

 

Even when the photographs are staged, some Muslims did not use social distancing

NotSocialDistancing1While Mayor de Blasio surely does not have any control over a mosque in Syracuse, New York, the Muslims attending that mosque have been shown through a recent post at this blog to have not used social distancing.

NotSocialDistancing3Therefore, based on the fact that they don’t practice social distancing when they know they are being photographed, that leads me to ask: “Why would they then practice social distancing during a traditional meal Ramadan meal that is commanded to be held in groups?”

That is, if the faithful Muslim has bothered to fast all of the lit hours of the day, why should he or she disobey tradition because some kafir tells him to social distance?

Point of continuing history #2: Mayor de Blasio devotes city funds to provide 500,000 “free” halal Ramadan meals (traditionally a group meal)

According to a 25 April 2020 Breitbart article, Mayor de Blasio committed to providing over 500,000 halal Ramadan meals to New York City Muslims.

DeBlasio-1
In this undated photo, Mayor de Blasio identifies with the Islamists

New York City will provide over 500,000 free halal meals to Muslims during Ramadan, Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) announced this week.

The city will distribute 400,000 halal meals at 32 specific Department of Education sites in areas where there are “large Muslim communities,” de Blasio announced on Thursday. Another 100,000 will be distributed through partnerships with community-based organizations, such as food pantries or soup kitchens.

“One of Ramadan’s most noble callings is to feed the hungry. And it’s a crucial part of how the holiday is celebrated, to remember to be there for those in need,” de Blasio said at a press briefing on Thursday. “And that is now harder than ever.”

“Obviously, people can’t go to their mosques,” he continued. “In fact, mosques have often been a place that those who were hungry, those who were poor, would know they could go during Ramadan to break the fast.”

Muslims believe acts performed during Ramadan will receive multiple times the reward during the rest of the year

Because Muslims believe that acts of faith performed during Ramadan will receive multiple times the reward as those performed during the rest of the year, we see an uptick in the number of jihadist attacks. Therefore, I think it is unreasonable for Mayor de Blasio to think that the Ramadan meals he hands out will not be consumed by people sitting in groups.

However, I also thought it was illogical for de Blasio to support the release of criminals just on the off chance that they might catch coronavirus.

 

 

Seven problems with Democrats forcing us into isolation using coronavirus


Harm centering on acts by Democrats

  1. It’s not just burglaries that went up in Houston, chief says

Houston ABC affiliate KTRK reports that Houston Police Chief points out that the “Stay Home, Work Safe” order by Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo has resulted in higher violent and non-violent crimes.

Houston Police Chief Art AcevedoAs Harris County prepares to compile a list of non-violent inmates to release in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo has offered a glimpse into how the city has trended in terms of crime in the last two weeks of strict social distancing guidelines.

Aside from burglaries rising by close to 20 percent, the chief said aggravated assaults similarly increased by 19.3 percent. Additionally, given the broad, statewide order to stay at home, domestic violence incidents have jumped by six percent.

In terms of homicides, the chief observed that rate had gone down over the last couple of weeks. The same was said about robberies as well.

The question is whether Hidalgo’s fought for release of felons will cause a bump of violence

A 19% raise in burglaries is nothing to sneeze at; however, since Democrat judges have been enforcing very low bails for violent crimes and because some of the same judges have released felons on coronavirus fears (in addition to Lina Hidalgo’s attempted release of 1,000 felons), one has to ask when this will have affects.

  1. Commercial burglaries soar since coronavirus emergency measures

The New York Post reports a 75% increase in burglaries since the coronavirus scare began.

DolceboardedupCommercial burglaries in New York City have risen 75 percent amid the coronavirus outbreak, according to data from the NYPD.

Police said 254 businesses have been targeted between March 12, the day a state of emergency order was issued by Mayor Bill de Blasio, and March 31.

This is up from the 145 burglaries recorded for the same time period last year, NYPD officials said.

“What we are seeing is that criminals are specifically targeting cash businesses, supermarkets and bodegas,” said NYPD Chief of Crime Control Strategies Michael LiPetri.

LiPetri noted that the method behind many of the burglaries has changed due to the emergency measures put in place to halt COVID-19’s spread, which forced many businesses to shut their doors.

“The opportunities are in a different place. There’s a lot less happening during the day, for example a lot less trucks are getting robbed. The burglaries we are seeing now are more organized and specifically targeted. There’s much more night-time entry, more forced entry, individuals breaking locks to get into businesses while they are closed,” LiPetri said.

This might cause people to rethink going to New York after the pandemic

The pandemic did not cause these burglaries. These burglaries came out of an attitude (commonly known by us religious folk that the New York Times wants to blame for coronavirus as “sin”) that doesn’t have much regard for the needs of others.

Considering the prevalence of that attitude, it might be a good idea to redirect your travel plans.

  1. Chicago Mayor Signs Executive Order Giving Coronavirus Benefits To Illegal Aliens

The Daily Caller points out how Chicago has lined up to give our tax dollars to illegal aliens.

lori-lightfootChicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Tuesday signed an executive order ensuring that all immigrants and refugees — including illegal aliens — are eligible to receive the city’s coronavirus benefits.

The city of Chicago has launched several programs in order to help residents cope with the financial challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Such initiatives include a coronavirus Housing Assistance Grant program, an online resources program for students through the city’s public schools, and a $100 million Chicago Small Business Resiliency Fund to help small businesses that are struggling.

Lightfoot’s order Tuesday will allow illegal aliens to tap into all of these programs.

“This order is more than just an official decree, it is a statement of our values as a city and as Americans,” the Democratic mayor said during the press conference.

I have no problem with charity; however, I do not want to promote lawlessness

Throughout the arguments over the border, I have continually pointed out my support (that is, the things to which I have contributed either effort or money) of certain Baptist and non-denominational charities that go generally to the poor. However, when it comes to enabling law breaking, I cannot support any such effort.

This quarantine, based on constantly-changing statistics on the mortality of coronavirus, should likewise change. In fact, it should go away in all of the areas where the deaths have not yet reached even one thousand for the state.

As of the writing of this blog post on 9 April 2020, there were 23 deaths in Harris County related to coronavirus. For that, Lina Hidalgo shut down businesses and has issued a month-long house arrest that she wants to extend for 6.33 million citizens (and God only knows how many illegal aliens, but they seem to be allowed to stand on corners in large groups).

This needs to end.

Harm coming from Democrats (in and out of the Press) using misinformation

  1. Pritzker: ‘Frankly, Very Many Fewer People Would Die’ If Trump Had Acted Earlier on Coronavirus

Breitbart reports on the complaining Democrat that had nothing to say about Pelosi’s misdirected actions.

Gov._J.B._PritzkerSunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D-IL) said President Donald Trump did not act early enough to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

Pritzker said, “We now know that intelligence sources and all the best advice that was given was given in January and early February to the president and the White House, and they seem not to have acted at all upon it. If they had started in February building ventilators, getting ready for this pandemic, we would not have the problems we have today, and frankly, very many fewer people would die.”

Why not bring up the words of Pelosi and Biden?

Trump closed our borders to travel from China by an announcement made on 31 January 2020 (effective on 5:00 p.m. on 2 February). In response to this, Nancy Pelosi called the ban “outrageous, un-American, and threatens ‘rule of law.’

Additionally, in late March 2020, Pelosi brought a group into Chinatown in San Francisco (now an epicenter of the coronavirus) as she encouraged people to come and shop.

Biden called Trump’s closure of America to those who had recently traveled to China “hysterical xenophobia – and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science

As for the acts of Democrat governors to prevent the spread of coronavirus, I cannot find a single article documenting the work done. Therefore, considering the press that works hand-in-glove with all Democrats to promote them, we can assume that nothing was done by Democrats to stop coronavirus. Based on that, please shut up, Mr. Pritzker.

  1. MSNBC host criticizes Republican states over pandemic, but ignores the fact that 36% of cases are in Democrat-run New York

The Western Journal pointed out how MSNBC showed its bias in multiple ways.

The mainstream media never fails to exploit a crisis, and COVID-19 is no exception.

Since the beginning, the media has sought to use the situation as a way to undermine President Donald Trump.

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell continued the effort on Monday, citing a Washington Post article that attempted to place blame for the spread of the virus at Trump’s feet.

“Well, ‘denial’ and ‘dysfunction’ have been the two words of the day, words that are used by The Washington Post in a searing account of the failures of the Trump administration to take COVID-19 seriously as the virus made its way from China into the U.S.,” Mitchell said, according to NewsBusters.

“For more than two months, time was squandered, warnings ignored, President Trump dismissing the virus as a hoax initially, only to lash out at the press and boast about his social media following.”

Contrary to the establishment media narrative of the administration having been in denial, Trump banned travel of foreign nationals from China to the U.S. on Jan. 31, one day after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed human-to-human transmission of the virus in the United States.

This does not sound like the action of an administration in denial.

As for Mitchell’s assertion that Trump dismissed the virus as a hoax, even the liberal-leaning fact-checker Snopes has debunked this claim.

Trump did not call the virus itself a hoax. He said the attempts by Democrats and those in the media to blame the virus on him were a new hoax, a claim that seems to have been confirmed by their subsequent behavior.

For his decision to ban travel from China, Trump was ridiculed by the media and by Democrats, including former Vice President Joe Biden, who accused him of “xenophobia.”

“We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency,” Biden tweeted.

02 BidenTweet

For weeks after Trump’s decision to restrict travel from China, prominent Democrats demonstrated they were not taking the threat of the virus seriously.

As late as Feb. 24, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was encouraging people to flock to San Fransisco’s Chinatown.

“We want to be vigilant about what is out there in other places,” she said at the time. “We want to be careful about how we deal with it, but we do want to say to people, ‘Come to Chinatown, here we are — we’re, again, careful, safe — and come join us.’”

On March 2, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio encouraged people “to go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus.”

03 deBlasioTweet

And on March 10, long after the White House coronavirus task force was up and running, New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was encouraging people to go out to Chinese restaurants because the establishments were “feeling the pain of racism.”

These statements from prominent Democrats sound an awful lot like denial, certainly more so than anything coming from the Trump administration during the same time period.

But, of course, the media does not care about that. With every story, their only concern is how it can best be used to hurt Trump.

That effort continues to this day, and it has now broadened to include not only Trump, but also his supporters.

Citing The Post piece, Mitchell asserted Monday that “there were a number of people in red states early on who didn’t heed the warnings to socially distance because they believed the president’s false comments.”

Instead of criticizing liberal politicians representing urban constituencies for not taking the virus as seriously as they should, she opted to focus on people living in “red states” instead.

But thus far, the hardest-hit areas have not been “red” areas — they’ve been liberal-run cities in states that are either predominantly run by Democrats or that have at least a Democratic governor.

There were roughly 423,135 confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S. as of Wednesday afternoon, according to data from Johns Hopkins.

Of the 10 hardest-hit states, just two — Florida, No. 7, and Georgia, No. 10 — have Republican governors.

New York state, which is dominated by Democratic politicians, had a whopping 150,697 cases, or roughly 36 percent of the nationwide total.

As anyone who has looked at the media knows, it is biased against conservatism

Even when it would kill main stream media outlets (or their audience) to report the party line, they will report the party line. With only a few exceptions (and these seem to be made in order to bring in the errant conservative), the main stream media stays with the Democrat talking points.

  1. Liberal media lets in Chinese propagandist to White House press briefings, tries to throw out conservatives

Lifezette points out how the liberal media let a Chinese propagandist in to the White House Press Briefings and tried to throw out conservatives.

At Monday’s White House coronavirus task force press briefing, President Trump called on a reporter. She uttered, “Only last week, there were multiple flights coming from China full of medical supplies. Companies like Huawei and Alibaba have been donating to the United States, like 1.5 million N95 masks and also a lot of medical gloves, and much more medical supplies.”

The president smelled a con job. He stated, “Sounds like a statement more than a question,” followed by, “Are you cooperating with China?” She dithered. “Who are you working for, China?” Trump pressed. “Who are you with?”

The reporter said, “Um, no, I’m working for— Hong Kong Phoenix TV,” to which Trump inquired, “Who owns that? China?” Her reply: “It’s based in Hong Kong. It’s a privately owned company.”

Notice the dodge on the question. It turns out, according to Fox News, “Within minutes of the exchange in the briefing room, consultant Elliot Schwartz flagged that in 2018, a former Phoenix TV news director testified as part of an FCC filing that the outlet is essentially controlled by China’s Communist Propaganda Department, and follows a directive to not report positively on the United States.

“Specifically, that former TV news director, Chung Pong, remarked: ‘I know from personal experience that Phoenix TV‘s content is subject to the dictates of the leadership of the Central Communist Propaganda Department, Central Communist Overseas Propaganda Office, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs which often directly sent instructions to Phoenix Satellite TV.’”

Why would the main stream media outlets pull a Chinese propagandist into this?

Unless there is an ideological agreement between the main stream media and the Chinese Communist Party, why would they pull a woman into the press briefing who had previously produced propaganda for the CCP?

  1. American media still using China’s bogus numbers on new Wuhan Coronavirus cases

Townhall comments on the way American media has still using been China’s bogus numbers on new Wuhan Coronavirus cases.

Despite mountains of direct evidence the Chinese Communist Party lied about the number of cases and deaths from Wuhan coronavirus within its own borders, members of the United States media are still touting their fake data.

04 NBC Tweet

First, China has stopped conducting or reporting testing. No testing magically means the CCP can report no new cases.

05 LoKinhei Tweet

Second, the Chinese people have exposed their own government for lying.

06 Global Times Tweet

(Read the final point regarding burial urns at Townhall)

Remember also that China early-on refused help

Remember that the Chinese Communist Party would not allow members of the Centers from Disease Control or the World Health Organization entry into China. That (along with the changing narrative out of China on the origin of the disease) would suggest that they have something to hide.

Four times Democrats found Conservatives remember things Democrats did a week/month ago


A week ago: a statement about hospital ships in New York Harbor

  1. Rachel Maddow said “It is nonsense. No hospital ship will be in New York Harbor next week

Just a week ago (on the 20 March 2020 broadcast – with a hat tip to GOP War Room), Rachel Maddow said in a “breaking news” announcement on MSNBC:

In terms of the “happy talk” we’ve had on this front from the federal government, there is no sign that the Navy hospital ships that the President made such a big deal of, the Comfort and the Mercy — there’s no sign that there’ll be anywhere on site helping out anywhere in the country for weeks yet. The President said when he announced that those ships would be put into action against the Covid-19 epidemic, he said “One of those ships would be operational in New York Harbor by next week.”

That’s nonsense. It will not be there next week.

Comfort docks in New York Harbor

As reported by the One America News Network on 30 March 2020, the Comfort docked in New York Harbor on 30 March 2020.

BDBNew York City Mayor Bill De Blasio rejoiced upon the arrival of the USNS Comfort in New York Harbor on Monday. The ship brought medical staff as well as additional supplies to the city amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“There could not be a better example of all of America pulling for New York City tan the arrival of the USNS Comfort,” said the mayor.

The hospital ship will help lighten the burden on New York City’s medical community by treating patients who don’t have coronavirus aboard the ship. This will help free up space in local hospitals as they deal with a surge in COVID-19 cases.

A day ago, Pelosi accuses Trump of costing American lives

  1. Nancy Pelosi: Trump fiddles as people are dying

On Sunday, 29 March 2020, Speaker Pelosi opined to CNN‘s Jake Tapper that President Trump’s response to the coronavirus has been deadly to Americans.

On 7 March, Nancy Pelosi stops progress on the coronavirus bill to negotiate

Bloomberg reported on 12 March 2020 that the coronavirus relief bill remained on hold for a week while San Fran Nan negotiated big-government perks into the bill.

Pelosi_TrumpFiddlesHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Donald Trump’s Treasury secretary haggled by phone throughout the day Thursday in a search for a compromise on emergency legislation to alleviate some of the economic pain of the escalating coronavirus outbreak.

A vote on a package of Democratic proposals, including emergency paid sick leave, enhanced unemployment benefits, and free coronavirus testing, was delayed while the negotiations went on. Pelosi and Steven Mnuchin talked five times as both sides looked for a way to get support in the Republican-controlled Senate and from the president.

  1. During February, Pelosi visits SF Chinatown to show woke support during coronavirus fears

 
The following video from San Francisco CBS affiliate KPIX shows Speaker Pelosi disregarding social distancing and encouraging others to shop in an area that deals with products obtained from China.

Note: Should any liberal read the above paragraph, the fact that the Wuhan coronavirus comes from China should give you pause when considering coming in contact with people who have been in China.  However,  it does not give you license to attack people from China. More specifically, it does not give you permission to attack Americans of Chinese heritage.

In January, Pelosi fiddled with impeachment

A 29 March 2020 article in Brietbart points out the words of Senator Blackburn, who cited the instance of Pelosi carrying on a sham impeachment during a time where President Trump started the Coronavirus Response Team.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for her accusations that President Donald Trump did not move fast enough to respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Nancy Pelosi is accusing Trump of not responding fast enough to the Chinese coronavirus. This is the same person that fiddled around with a sham impeachment* that wasted valuable time…” she tweeted.

“You’re not fooling anyone, Nancy,” she added.

Of course, there are other quotes I could pull from

There are quotes from Bill De Blasio telling New Yorkers to go about life as usual (during mid-March). We have sound bites from health officials saying that the people of New York should use the subway, go to restaurants, and live life as usual. There are quotes from the Health commissioner of New Orleans saying that it was ok to go to Mardi Gras.

New Orleans Mayor issues coronavirus order allowing ban on sale, transportation of firearms

Breitbart reports on the action of the New Orleans Mayor as she works to restrict the ability of citizens to protect themselves during this crisis.

NewOrleansMayorLaToyaCantrellNew Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell (D) signed a coronavirus emergency order last week allowing her to ban the sale and transportation of firearms.

She signed a follow-up proclamation on March 16, 2020, further emphasizing her emergency powers to “suspend or limit the sale, dispensing, or transportation, of alcoholic beverages.”

The declaration declaring the mayor’s power to restrict gun sales and transportation says she is “empowered, if necessary, to suspend or limit the sale of alcoholic beverages, firearms, explosives, and combustibles.”

On March 16, 2020, the Second Amendment Foundation responded to Cantrell’s claims of emergency powers over firearms by reminding her that they sued over Second Amendment infringement following Hurricane Katrina and will do so during the era of coronavirus if needed.

(Read more at Breitbart)

What could the reason for this ban be, other than symbolic?

This does not stop any law-abiding gun owner from protecting his or her property. However, it might keep a cash-strapped gun owner from paying his or her mortgage or rent in the event that there have been coronavirus-related layoffs. Additionally, it would prevent a law-abiding person from buying a firearm in a time of need.

However, there will be criminals in New Orleans with new guns. There may be coyotes selling an array of firearms not available legally and LaToya will not have a thing to say about it.

Still, now that she has pulled this little stunt, she will later produce a Mike-Bloomberg-esque commercial claiming that she stood up to the National Rifle Association.

Harris County Democrat Judge Lina Hidalgo restricts the operation of restaurants and closes bars

Houston CBS affiliate KHOU reports that Democrat Lina Hidalgo unilaterally closed all bars in Harris county and restricted the operation of all restaurants.

On Tuesday, bars closed in Harris County and restaurants switched to take-out, drive-through or delivery only. Those are just two of the big changes underway as officials try to slow to spread of COVID-19.

On Monday, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo, alongside Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, announced the changes would take effect Tuesday morning and will be in place at least 15 days.

Since the county is under a public health emergency declaration, the county does have the authority to close down businesses, according to KHOU 11 legal analyst Gerald Treece.

“If the county deems that there is a health emergency, the county has the authority to close any establishment, including a bar,” Treece said. “You put the rules in neutral and general police power takes over. General police power: to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of that jurisdiction.”

During this time, if a business refuses to comply, the county does have authority to fine an establishment and then take the owner to court to seek an injunction, which would shut a business down, according to Treece.

If there are widespread compliance issues, the National Guard could step in.

“They can prevent violence, they can enforce the law, including injunctions, including an order from the city or county,” Treece said.

Take this with a grain of salt, since this order comes from a left-wing ideologue

Before you come to the defense of this woman, remember that Houston Public Media pointed out that this little dictator also dedicated taxpayer funds to the creation of an illegal alien defense fund without any public input. On multiple occasions, she has spoken out against the border wall (a stance that has disappeared online now that the poll suggesting that Americans favor an open border has been discredited).

Additionally, Ms. Hidlago can be remembered as the politician who allocated Hurricane Harvey’s disaster-recovery funds on the basis of skin color rather than damage, citing her theory of “equity.” What’s more, this egotistical, left-wing Millennial also answers to  the moniker of the liberal who attempted to triple Harris County’s property taxes just after a disaster and during a time that no no extra funds were needed (refer to the first paragraph regarding her creation of the illegal alien defense fund).

So, here you have a liberal who stands against the border wall (somewhat silently now), but builds borders around our bars and restaurants. She complains about equiity, but directs disaster-relief funds by skin color and not need. She wants to take from the rich (that is, anyone making over the median wage), but doesn’t mind making us all poor.

Although I do not support disobedience in this case, it seems that this liberal would stand much watching (just based on her track record). Remember, Jesus told us to be as innocent as doves and as wise as serpents.

Is this the new standard Democrat?

Previous Democrats issued subpoenas for pastors’ sermons, this one shuts down all churches with an order

Not that many years have passed since Mayor Annise Parker issued subpeonas to Houston-area pastors to intimidate them into not preaching against her transgender bathroom bill. Thankfully, Annise Parker lost in the courts of public opinion, in the ballot box over her bathroom bill, and in the separation of church and state decision.

Still, this blanket closing of all churches seems to be an overreach and the meeting of the goal imagined by Houston’s previous mayoral administration. Admittedly, as Christians, we must take into mind the needs of the least powerful among us. In this case, the least powerful would be those with compromised immune systems and the aged (which, depending on the person’s health, may vary from 65 to 85 as a in-risk group). The problem with just submitting to the whims of a dictatorial Millenial is, of course, that we may not be submitting to the will of God unless we submit the whole issue to prayer.

Additionally, in light of the following article, we have to ask whether we are praying to God or our own hubris.

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling. (Proverbs 16:18 NASB)

Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. (James 1:27 NASB)

Baton Rouge area pastor defies governor, welcomes large gathering into church service

Baton Rouge CBS affiliate WAFB reports that Reverand Tony Spell has chosen to hold church meetings in violation of the order by the governor of Louisiana.

The Louisiana National Guard says it has not been tasked with breaking up large gatherings in the state, including at churches.

The statement comes on the heels of a pastor of a Louisiana church defying government orders by welcoming in hundreds of people into his church service Tuesday evening (March 17).

The gathering directly defied an order by Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards that bans groups larger than 50 from gathering at any one time, including in churches. President Donald Trump has recommended no groups larger than 10.

TonySpellThe pastor, Rev. Tony Spell, says police showed up at the church after the service telling him the National Guard would break up any future gatherings that exceed 50 people.

However, Louisiana National Guard Colonel Ed Bush said Wednesday that is not accurate.

“The National Guard has not been tasked with enforcing any of the curfew, social distancing or meeting requirements as set by the governor,” Colonel Bush said. “Our focus right now is completely with helping state agencies with preparedness and medical readiness,” Bush added.

Numerous churches across the state have canceled services until further notice because of the governor’s proclamation, which he says aims to control the spread of the virus.

Leftist causes get promoted

Harris Co. considers releasing inmates over COVID-19 concerns

According to Houston’s Fox affiliate, Democrat Sheriff Ed Gonzales wants to open the jails due to the coronavirus.

Jails and prisons can be breeding grounds for disease.

EdGonzales“We do have an aging population here we have several hundred that are above 55 years of age and also very sick,” said Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.

With more than 8,000 inmates at Harris County Jail, social distancing is not possible.

“We operate in tight spaces,” the sheriff said. “So there’s not a lot of opportunity for social distancing.”

There have been no known cases of COVID-19 in the Harris County Jail, but that will likely change.

Remember, most inmates in the jail are pre-trial, meaning they have not been convicted of a crime.

“We are working on our compassionate releases that are smart, that make sense, that don’t put the community at harm,” Gonzalez said. “It’s important for us to balance this public health crisis with public safety. So we are working with our judges and other avenues to see how we could, in a smart way, release population, if it makes sense.”

“There are no cases of TDCJ in or connected to any TDCJ facility,” says TDCJ spokesman Jeremy Desel.

Take in mind I have blogged repeatedly about murderers being released on bail

On numerous occasions, I have blogged about the result of electing the social justice judges who continually let murderers and other violent criminals out on the streets based on their inability to pay for the bail bond that a sane justice system would require.

Just in case you have forgotten, there was the case where Chicago’s Mayor defended the release of an illegal alien who raped a 3-year-old.

There is the case in Houston where a man on bond for murder robbed a convenience store while wearing an ankle monitor. During that armed robbery, surveillance cameras show him jumping over the counter and threatening the clerk with a gun. This man has been accused of murder in 2017 and 2018.

On 14 February 2020, I blogged about seven stories that concerned the numbers and types of criminals released by our Democrat judges.

As early as 7 February 2020, I blogged about a career criminal who killed three family members because he was out on bail.

So, if these past blog posts warm your heart, get ready for more (thanks not only to the social justice District Attorney Kim Ogg and the social justice Democrat judges, but also the social justice Sheriff Ed Gonzalez).

Not to be outdone by Texas, New York Democrats release inmates

With a hat tip to sfcmac, we find from the New York Post that New York Democrats have announced the release of inmates from city jails.

Mayor Bill de Blasio plans to release “vulnerable” inmates from city jails to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic into local lockups, he said Wednesday.

“In the next 48 hours, we will identify any inmates who need to be brought out because of either their own health conditions — if they have any pre-existing conditions, etc. — or because the charges were minor and we think it’s appropriate to bring them out in this context,” de Blasio said on WCBS radio Wednesday evening.

“That said, we still need our criminal justice system to function,” he added.

The announcement comes as a correction officer and an inmate both tested positive for the deadly illness in the past day.

The Correction Officers Benevolent Association union has called for new masks to protect its members and for all new detainees to be housed in facilities other than Rikers Island amid the outbreak.

Some city officials, including Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, have pushed for the city to begin releasing prisoners who are over 50 years old and at a low risk for reoffending.

What can I say?

I could ask that New York keep their criminals where they should be; however, the moving of criminals where they should be to other places seems to be the entire point of the article above.

The only thing I might suggest would probably be an impossibility in New York: vote conservative.

Liberal expectations and reality do not match on the Coronavirus panic


As I observe the coronavirus panic, the disparity between liberal expectations and the reality they create becomes more evident

During the past few weeks, I have been watching the coverage of this coronavirus crisis (often observing how the newscasters seem to be treating the audience as imbeciles). Therefore, I have laid out the following observations that fall across this coronavirus crisis from various liberal slants and do not in the least make sense for the reasons that I also note.

The Expectations of Liberals: My Observation
Liberals say that we must trust certain portions of our main stream media.

They claim that “fake news” is a construct of conservatives.

The following paragraphs document five instances of fake news committed (by over 23 “news” organizations) that occurred during the first two weeks of March 2020.

CNN, the Washington Post, and other members of the main stream media first accused President Trump of lying about a Google-developed app to help those who have potentially contracted Covid-19 get tested. Then they had to correct their misinformation.

According to Breitbart, at least eight New York Times authors shared a deceptively edited quote Monday from President Donald Trump’s recent call with state governors, creating the false impression that the president is denying federal support for ventilators that are needed in hospitals treating coronavirus patients.

The Daily Caller went further to report that not only nine New York Times authors, but also the Business Insider, Political Wire, Daily Kos, and Daily Beast repeated the same lie by omission.

Additionally, Breitbart notes that Reuters has been caught stealth-editing a debunked story where they initially claimed Trump wanted to obtain exclusive American access to a coronavirus vaccine.

Add to that, a story claiming that President Trump fired the entire White House pandemic team came out through main stream media sources, but was disproven by Breitbart.

As the contents of the right column of the row above demonstrate, the press would love to catch the President in a lie (even if they have to manufacture and spread it themselves). Why doesn’t the press hold the Chinese government to even a normal level of accountability? Now we know that the Chinese government covered up the origins of the Wuhan virus, suppressed doctors who tried to get news out, and destroyed records, but that news has hardly been shared widely.
Liberals say that conservatives need to tone down the hate during this time of crisis. The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin appeared on MSNBC‘s Morning Joy where she suggested that there would be fewer Democrat deaths because they would follow the suggestions of experts offered through the media.(as reported by Breitbart). Elsewhere, similar assertions might be considered hate speech. (However, in related news, a Democrat lawyer who worked to prosecute the impeachment has tested positive for coronavirus.)

Democrat Representative Rashida Tlaib shared a tweet telling her followers “F**k the National Day of Prayer,” according to Breitbart.

Instead of conservatives, we saw Bernie supporters cornering a Democrat woman in her car and berating her.

With a hat tip to sfcmac, we see in the Washington Times that immigrants were targeted by leftists for attending a Trump rally.

Following the lines of logic provided by Jennifer Rubin on MSNBC‘s Morning Joy, liberals expect people to submit to the purportedly more accurate and responsible ideas concerning “the truth.” A recent article by Daily Caller, we are reminded that the WHO told us to not worry because China told us the coronavirus was not contagious. Now those same “experts” are credibly being cited by both the press and Joe Biden.
Even without the creative work of the main stream media, President Trump does produce gaffes that the press loves to accentuate. With that said, why doesn’t the press report on the many, many Biden gaffes that not even the most diligent can track? Why not question him about his lie that the WHO offered the U.S. coronavirus tests?

Why don’t they point out how a point out how one doddering old socialist repeatedly confused “ebola” with “coronavirus?”

Numerous liberals (including Bernie, Biden, and other leading Democrats) advocate for open borders even during this crisis.

Nancy Pelosi called the closing of travel from China “over-reacting.”

Joe Biden called Trump xenophobic and racist for shutting off travel from China.

Open borders countries like Italy and Spain have experienced some of the highest infection rates of Covid-19.

European nations with strong borders (like Poland and Hungary) have experienced fewer cases of Covid-19.

Liberal politicians (such as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau) have adopted a closed-border stance.

The closure of our borders to travelers from China has been credited with preventing cases of coronavirus.

Likewise, numerous liberals (such as Bernie, Biden, and others) continually call for the U.S. to have government-provided health care in various forms.

During the first Democrat debate, all participants supported taxpayer-supported health care for illegal aliens.

As Joe Biden pointed out when making points against Bernie, the single-payer health care system in Italy has begun to flounder under the weight of coronavirus.

Likewise, Spain struggles with the Covid-19 outbreak.

Bernie continually praises communist regimes (China, Cuba, Russia, … ) and suggests the U.S. take on socialistic programs. As pointed out above, the Chinese government (a communist government, for those of you in Rio Linda) covered up the origins of the Wuhan virus, suppressed doctors who tried to get news out, and destroyed records. America does not need communism, no matter what Bernie says.
Along the line of liberals expecting us to take the word of experts, the main stream press seems to want us to accept the word of liberal politicians without question. However, Bernie was not questioned when he claimed we had 87 million uninsured (when Obama claimed 9 million).

Other questions/responses posed on social media

The following are some tweets and responses from conservative people on Twitter. Because the tweets of such people tend to be either shadow banned or deleted, I included both links to the original  tweets and screen captures of the tweets.

I would like to read your observations on the gap between liberal expectations and the reality they create for the rest of us.

Leftists’ double standard on violence


Sanders Staffer “There are things more important than the rule of law in the USA”

Kyle JurekIn the following undercover video by Project Veritas, the Iowa field organizer for the Bernie Sanders campaign, Kyle Jurek, had a number of things to say about Elizabeth Warren, her staff workers, Democrats (if Sanders is not nominated), and many other groups.

JurekSo many people have suicided themselves that have been related to the Clintons. It’s f**king insane.

Speaker Testimony
Jurek The only thing that facists understand is violence. So, the only way you can confront them is with violence.
James O’Keefe Meet Kyle Jurek, a field organizer in Iowa for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Jurek says cities are going to burn if Trump gets re-elected. These are worrisome words from someone who works for a man running to be President of the United States.
O’Keefe Now, evidence shows Kyle Jurek has been in politics since 2018 when, according to these FEC records, Jurek was paid $500 while working for the Democratic Senate campaign committee. The FEC records also show he has worked for the Sanders campaign for over six months. And, so far, Jurek has earned nearly $11,000.
Jurek Yeah they seem emboldened. They (Trump supporters) have been emboldened by Trump and all that rhetoric and shit. But they are scared f**king senseless of anti-fascists. Like even like even like the ones that are kind of like the right-wing people.
Jurek The only thing that works. The only thing that fascists understand is violence. So, the only way you can confront them is with violence.
Veritas journalist So, if Trump gets re-elected, what …
Jurek F**king cities burn.
Veritas journalist Do what you gotta do.
Jurek Yeah. I mean, we don’t have a lot of time left, we have to save f**king human civilization. And obviously Trump doesn’t give two f**ks about making sure the world doesn’t burn.
Jurek If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC Convention, f**king Milwaukee will burn. It’ll start in Milwaukee and then, when they f**king, and when the police push back on that, other cities will just f**king (makes an explosion sound).
Jurek Be ready to be in Milwaukee for the DNC Convention. That’s all I’m gonna say. We’re going to make 1978 (editor’s note: actually 1968) look like a f**king Girl Scout f**king cookout.
Veritas journalist What does that mean?
Jurek Remember what happened when McGovern got f**ked in Chicago in 1978 (editor’s note: it was Humphrey in 1968)? Riots. F**king people getting beaten by the cops. The cops are gonna be the ones that are getting f**king beaten in Milwaukee. They’re gonna call up the national guard for that s**t. I promise you that.
O’Keefe Jurek is clearly very radical, but also very confused about his political history. He talks about riots in Chicago in 1978 when George McGovern was running for president. In fact, the riots were in 1968 when Hubert Humphrey was the Democratic nominee. McGovern ran for president in 1972 and there were no riots that year.
Jurek If Bernie doesn’t … if they f**king take Bernie from us, then we have nothing else to lose.
Jurek Whatever it takes. And that’s why they’re like “oh, anti-fascists are violent.” It’s because we’re willing to go above and beyond what the law says is acceptable, like free speech, yeah, they try to be like “oh, you’re against free speech.” And, no we’re not against free speech. We’re against f**king hate speech, and if your free speech is something that these people shouldn’t exist, then I don’t give a f**k if it’s free speech or not, you don’t need, like free speech has repercussions.
Jurek Yeah, there are consequences to your f**king speech, right? If your speeck is calling for the elimination of people based on race or gender, or religious like for whatever reason, things that people can’t change, then you should expect a f**king violent reaction. And you deserve a violent reaction. Because that’s just not an acceptable thing. It’s not acceptable.
Veritas journalist Kill the Clintons?
Jurek Maybe. Revolution. Kill the Clintons? Let me tell you something about this revolution. We don’t gotta kill the Clintons. We’ll make them kill themselves.
Veritas journalist How’s that?
Jurek Reign of terror.
O’Keefe It’s clear that in a revolution, Democratic candidates like Tom Styer and Mike Bloomberg wouldn’t be safe. And, in his world, networks like MSNBC or even the moderate liberals wouldn’t be immune.
Veritas journalist Thrown down?
Jurek I’m ready to throw down now. I don’t want to wait and have to wait for f**king DNC.
Veritas journalist Yeah, but with who, who you going to throw down with?
Jurek The billionaire class. The f**king media, pundits. Walk into that MSNBC studios, drag those motherf**kers out by their hair and light them on fire in the streets.
Veritas journalist Guys like that (liberal), what are we gonna do with them?
Jurek Gulag. Liberals get the f**king wall first.
Veritas journalist What are we gonna do with those people that resist the change? Because that’s the big deal.
Jurek Well, I’ll tell you what, in Cuba, what did they do to reactionaries?
Veritas journalist They shot them on the beach.
Jurek (Nodding head and smiling broadly) Do you want to fight against the revolution? You’re gonna die for it, motherf**ker.
O’Keefe Jurek also has some pretty harsh words for Sander’s rival on the left, Elizabeth Warren. He is particularly critical of her staffers in Iowa.
Jurek They were like sending canvasers to our events. Like we had that climate summit, but they couldn’t find it for AOC. F**king Warren campaign people show up. One table in the event. Wanted to set up a table for Warren. And we’re like, “get the f**k outta here.” This isn’t a Warren event. You’re not coming in here and scooping up people. No.
Veritas journalist It is a competition, you know.
Jurek You team guys like to say Warrens just like Bernie, but a woman, but (guess what) we’re not on the same team.
Jurek Bernie’s a bad judge of character. Weaver, who is like, one of his campaign like senior advisors. … Bernie has started opening up lines of attack on Warren, but he keeps it policy based.
Jurek People tell me at the doors, like, yeah, you know, I like Bernie, but I really want a woman to be … it’s like, wait.
Jurek So, like you’re okay with a woman if she has worse policies? Like just because she’s a woman, because she has a vagina, that’s why you’re going to vote for her? Like, f**k, if we can beat Donald Trump, as long as we nominated a woman. Like f**king idiot. Like what the f**k? The world is on fire. This is an emergency situation, and you’re hung up on vaginas.
O’Keefe Is this someone you want to be part of your governemnt? Keep in mind, Jurek was an open book. On day one, he told us he wanted to punch “Nazis,” burn cities down if Trump wins again in a free election and spoke of shooting people if they couldn’t be “re-educated.” Is Kyle Jurek the true but hidden face of the Sanders campaign? Is the Sanders campaign going to fire Kyle? Are they going to say he’s a lone wolf or an isolated incident? Well, in our next release, you will hear Jurek say some of the most shocking and disturbing totaltarian aspirations ever spoken during a presidential campaign.

I will not be sorry for workers of the Bernie campaign

These guys are the ones who expected me to genuflect to the MeToo movement. They were the ones who generated trangenderism.

If the hopes of comrade Sanders are being dashed by comrade Warren, then cry me a river.

Infamous ANTIFA terror leader has his identity revealed following accusations of racism and abuse

According to Big League Politics, an Antifa terror leader has had his identity revealed after he has been accused of racism and abuse.

AntiFash GordonThe infamous ANTIFA terror leader, who hid anonymously behind the handle AntiFash Gordon (AFG) as he conspired to destroy people’s lives, has finally had his identity revealed after years of doxxing patriotic activists.

According to The Post Millennial, AFG’s real identity is 38-year-old Christian Michael Exoo, a Canton, NY resident who works at at St. Lawrence University as a library supervisor. He has doxxed countless conservative individuals, giving the identities of patriots to a left-wing mob empowered to destroy their lives with targeted hate campaigns.

Exoo is reportedly a product of the university system that harbors the radical Left. His father, mother and brother are employed as professors at St. Lawrence University. He has taught students how to doxx individuals on social media at the university as well.

Exoo uses his information science background to teach about “open-source intelligence research.” In 2017, he led a seminar at a conference on the campus hosted by Weave News. One slide from his presentation read: “In this exercise, we are going to find the Facebook profile of our subject, and find all of the posts he’s ‘liked.’”

When you look at the words of Kyle Jurek and the actions Christian Michael Exoo, they are liberal hypocrites

They profess free speech (for people who agree with them). They profess tolerance (for the groups they support, but not a person more). They claim that science backs their positions (unless you think that only girls have xx chromosomes and only boys have xy chromosomes).

German feminists burn pro-lifer’s car

In a 17 January 2020 Lifezette article, we find that a German femininist group torched a pro-life journalist’s car.

femininistsBurnCarIn a nation with a relatively recent historical record like Germany, you would think the radical Left, given their National Socialist heritage, would refrain from reminding people of their tendency to set fire to things they disdain like books and legislative buildings.

But that precedent matters not to the hard Left in any country, feminists included.

That’s why the clumsily-named “Feminist Autonomous Cell” (it has that robotic student Marxist sound to it typical of the kiddie Left the world over) didn’t think twice last month when they vandalized a church in Tubingen and then set fire to a car outside the church.

The violent femmes followed that up with torching the SUV of a pro-life journalist. This info according to the Catholic News Agency. They grabbed it from a website called “indymedia”, where the distaff thugs posted their confession of responsibility for the incidents.

Inclusion, just not you. Tolerance, unless you disagree with us.

The only thing that I can say is that liberals never seem to practice what they preach.

Consider how Bernie considered a practical belief only in Christ to be Islamophobic. Consider also how he has not suggested removal from office (as he did with Russell Vought) Rashida Tlaib’s or Ilhan Omar, even with their anti-Semitic statements.

Four stories on the conflict between Christianity and the LGBTQ crowd


  1. First trans leaves Transgender Lifestyle

James Shupe Leaves ‘Fraud’ Transgender Lifestyle: ‘Legal Fiction Based on Pseudoscience’

Brietbart reports in a 7 January 2020 article on the exit of James Shupe from the transgender lifestyle.

JamesShupeJames Shupe, the man who became the first person to obtain a legal sex designation of “non-binary,” now says the transgender lifestyle is a “fraud.”

On Christmas Eve, an Oregon judge restored James (formerly Jamie) Shupe’s gender to male and allowed him to resume using his birth name.

A recent report at PJ Media noted that Shupe characterized his “non-binary” status as a “psychologically harmful legal fiction.”

“The lies behind my fictitious sex changes, something I shamefully participated in, first to female, and then to non-binary, have been forever exposed,” Shupe told PJ Media. “A truthful accounting of events has replaced the deceit that allowed me to become America’s first legally non-binary person.”

Shupe acknowledged achieving the first “non-binary” sex designation was a win for the radical LGBTQ lobby. Now, however, he said he has “corrected” his legal record “and LGBT advocates are no longer able to use my historic non-binary court order to advance their toxic agenda.”

“I am and have always been male,” he said. “That is my biological truth, the only thing capable of grounding me to reality.”

He added the “non-binary” sex designation is “fraud and legal fiction based on pseudoscience.”

“I was indoctrinated to believe that I had this thing called a gender identity and that suppressing it was causing my mental health problems,” he added. “It was all a lie.”

In January 2019, Shupe released a “public announcement” in which he declared he had resumed his biological male sex designation.

I am glad for Mr. Shupe for just this step.

As a Christian, I would like to lead him to a relationship with Jesus. However, that will not happen through the Internet at a blog. At best, this blog might be a reminder for me to keep my words here in close contact with my actions in public and private.

Nonetheless, I applaud Mr. Shupe for taking steps to leaving a lifestyle where greater numbers than the general population commit suicide.

Additionally, I applaud Mr. Shupe for coming out with this second change from transgender to his birth gender, because it benefits those who lift him up as an example. It would have been much easier for him to just fade into the background and enjoy the benefits of his most recent choice.

  1. Battling the LGBTQ+ push within evangelical churches

According to a 10 January 2020 OneNewsNow article, there has been a push by LGBTQ+ groups to infiltrate evangelical churches.

lgbtq-transgender-flag-protestThe organizer of a Bible-based conference says attendees will learn how to be “courageous in compassion without any compromise” in the face of a radical and growing threat to biblical sexuality.

The second annual “God’s Voice Conference: A Biblical Response to LGBTQ+ Tyranny” is being held April 17-18 in Oklahoma City to end the confusion surrounding the issue of “LGBTQ+ Christianity,” while exposing the misinformation being disseminated by the “Revoice” movement infiltrating the conservative Church.

According to conference organizers, the gathering this year will focus on equipping Christians to have an answer for radical LGBTQ+ activists, whose threats to biblical morality and fierce opposition to the freedom of speech, religious freedom, and biological facts on human sexuality continue to grow.

Stephen Black, executive director of First Stone Ministries, is an organizer of and speaker at the God’s Voice Conference. Black argues that Christians cannot cave when activists from the LGBTQ+ community aim to replace the biblical standard of human sexuality with progressive sexuality.

“Christians must awaken to the growing cultural and legal threats posed by the LGBTQ+ movement if the Church is to be prepared to stand against its tyranny and be victorious,” Black proclaims.

“God’s Voice Conference 2020 is designed to share the love of God and the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ,” he emphasizes. “[We] will equip pastors, ministry leaders and individual believers to be courageous in compassion without any compromise, because true compassion never compromises on God’s Voice – the Word of God – when it comes to sexual morality.”

Organizers of the conference offer this warning:

“From the religious freedom-crushing Equality Act to unconstitutional talk-therapy bans, from shocking Drag Queen Story Hours [at public libraries] to indoctrinated children seeking surgical ‘gender transitions,’ from radical LGBTQ+ activist pressure at Christian colleges to Big Tech censorship, Christians are facing unprecedented pressure to conform to the demands of this tyrannical movement.”

Regarding “Revoice,” remember Galations 1:8

Paul tells the Galations “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! (Galatians 1:8 NASB).”

Therefore, if anyone wants us to ignore a significant portion of the Bible (and there are many verses addressing the sinfulness of sex outside of marriage), we are to consider them damned.

  1. Fuller expels students over same-sex marriage and gets sued

According to a 12 January 2020 OneNewsNow article, Fuller Theological Seminary has expelled two students who were found to have violated the school’s standards. As a result, the students have sued.

Fuller-Theological-SeminaryTwo students are suing Fuller Theological Seminary, alleging it has violated anti-discrimination laws for expelling them once learning that they are married to people of the same sex.

The lawsuit filed on behalf of Nathan Brittsan, an associate pastor at Grace Baptist Church in San Jose, California, and Joanna Maxon – both graduate students pursuing their Masters of Divinity – argues that Fuller Theological Seminary’s standards do not “prohibit same-sex dating relationships or same-sex civil marriages,” the case states, according to Religion News Service (RNS). It also contends that neither of the students were asked if they engaged in “homosexual forms of explicit sexual conduct,” which is prohibited.

Government not to interfere in Church business

In the face of the students’ claims, all students are called upon in the admission process to abide by the school’s biblical code of morality.

“When students apply to Fuller Theological Seminary, they agree to adhere to a wide swath of biblically based Christian ethics by giving written consent to abide by the seminary’s community standards as a continuing condition of enrollment,” Becket Law informed. “This collective agreement shapes the worldwide ethos of Fuller and includes upholding the belief that God created marriage to be the permanent covenant between only one man and one woman, and that sexual union must be reserved for that relationship. The seminary’s community standards are clear that students are to abstain from sexual conduct outside of this sacred marriage covenant.”

While God calls us to minister to a lost world, we have forgotten the command to select leaders who are beyond reproach

Over the last few years, there has been a focus on the love of God (1 John 4:8). However, at the same time, there has been a seemingly willful ignorance of the holiness of God (2 Corinthians 7:1; Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 4:8; and many other verses).

Similar to the way we have forgotten the justice of God, people have forgotten the high standards for leadership with the Church. Somehow the requirement that leaders “must be the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine …” (1 Timothy 3:2-3).

Therefore, although we must reach out to the lost person (Jude 1:23; Matthew 28:19; and many other verses) as they currently live and we must offer a better way.

  1. United Methodist Church announces official split over LGBTQ rights

BizPacReview reports on 4 January 2020 that the United Methodist Church has split over how it handles the lesibian, gay, and transgender pressures on it.

FirstUnitedMethodistChurchDoorsSometimes, break-ups are inevitable …

After a joyous 51-year run, it appears the United Methodist Church is slated for an unavoidable split over its congregants’ growing disagreement over LGBT issues.

Leaders of the church reportedly announced Friday that they’ve agreed to a tentative plan to split the church into two sub-denominations — one that’ll permit gay marriage and gay clergy, and another that’ll stick to “traditionalist Methodist” teachings.

What’s odd and inexplicable is that the “traditionalist Methodist” denomination will be the outlier, while the LGBT-friendly one will adopt the church’s original longtime name.

It appears the LGBT-friendly church will retain the United Methodist Church name after the division,” the New York Daily News reported Friday.

Moreover, any individual Methodist churches across the globe interested in maintaining traditional teachings will have to voluntarily sign up with the traditional denomination. Those that fail to sign up will “remain as a United Methodist Church” …

According to The New York Times, this split has been a long time coming.

“A separation in the Methodist church, a denomination long home to a varied mix of left and right, had been brewing for years, if not decades,” the outlet notes.

“It had become widely seen as likely after a contentious general conference in St. Louis last February, when 53 percent of church leaders and lay members voted to tighten the ban on same-sex marriage, declaring that ‘the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching.’”

Note that the 53 percent applied to the church’s worldwide leaders. This is relevant because, while most Methodist leaders from the U.S. reportedly back homosexuality, their compatriots overseas do not. That’s why the vote wound up being against homosexuality — because the U.S. leaders were outvoted by their global counterparts.

Why not call this a split along the lines of Bible-believing and Bible-denying factions?

Rather than calling it a split between the “gay-friendly” and “traditionalist” factions of the United Methodist church, why not call it a split between those those who want to deny the Bible (specifically, there are at least the following verses that have to do with the topic of homosexuality: Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13; Mark 10:6-9; Romans 1:26-28; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; 1 Corinthians 7:2; 1 Timothy 3:2-3; 1 Timothy 1:8-11; and Jude 1:5-8) and those who want to focus on the love and forgiveness of God without requiring repentance?

Admittedly, God is love (1 John 4:8b); however, God is also holy (Isaiah 57:15). Therefore, to access God’s love and assuage His holiness, we are told on multiple occasions to repent (that is, stop sinning, as detailed in 2 Chronicles 7:14; 2 Chronicles 30:9b; Proverbs 1:23; Proverbs 28:13; Ezekiel 18:32; Joel 2:13; Zechariah 1:3b; Matthew 3:8; Matthew 4:17; Matthew 9:13; Mark 1:15; Luke 13:3; Luke 5:32; Luke 15:7; Luke 15:10; Acts 2:38; Acts 3:19; Acts 17:30; 2 Peter 3:9; James 4:8; 1 John 1:9; Revelation 3:19; and other verses).

Of course, we are also told on multiple occasions to believe in God’s Messiah and accept God’s grace (Mark 1:15; Mark 16:16; John 1:12; John 3:16; John 3:18; John 3:36; John 5:24; John 8:24; John 10:38; John 11:25-26; John 11:40; John 14:1; John 20:31; Acts 2:38; Acts 13:39; Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9-10; Romans 10:13-14; Romans 10:17; Hebrews 3:12; Hebrews 11: 6; 1 Peter 1:21; and other verses).

So, we must pray for the Bible-believing Methodists that they may be strengthened. Likewise, we must pray for the rest, so that they might see the truth.

Eight non-impeachment stories that could jump up and bite one or more Democrats


  1. Unfit To Print Episode 32: Media Scrambles To Retract Obama’s Immigration Record

The Daily Caller points out how the media scrambled to retract Obama’s immigration record when they discovered that they had incriminated Obama rather than Trump.

Media outlets discovered they received misleading data from the UN this week, but instead of correcting their stories, they erased them entirely.

On this week’s episode of Unfit to Print, Amber Athey explains why AFP and Reuters retracted articles claiming the U.S. has 100,000 children in migrant detention centers after they found out that statistic is from 2015, when President Barack Obama was in office.

The story apparently wasn’t as important when it couldn’t be used to attack President Donald Trump!

Odd that there were no retractions, no corrections

Since they could not continue their 95%+ negative reporting on Trump and would have to point out that the reporting would have to bring down their demi-god Obama, they tried to just sweep it under the rug.

Since we regularly see the main stream media (the ones that are rarely quoted here because they do not report on issues critical of Democrats) relentlessly attack conservatives and then lob softballs at Democrats, there can be no wonder why few trust journalists.

  1. Elizabeth Warren Denied Sending Her Kids To Private School, Despite Sending Son To Elite Private School

Daily Caller points out another bald-faced lie by Lie-a-watha, Liz Warren when she told a woman that she (Warren) only sent her kids to public school.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren denied sending her children to private schools, despite the fact that she sent her son to an elite private school.

When school choice activists confronted her after a campaign rally Thursday, Warren said her children didn’t go to private schools.

“We are going to have the same choice that you had for your kids, because I read that your children went to private schools,” one activist told Warren. “No, my children went to public schools,” the Massachusetts senator replied.

But publicly available records show Warren, who has pledged to crack down on school choice if elected, chose to send her son Alexander to Kirby Hall, an elite private school in the Austin area, as the Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported. Kirby Hall’s 1987 yearbook lists Alexander Warren among the school’s fifth-graders.

If Ms. Warren wants to reach minority communities, she might want to consider supporting charter schools

Charter schools have enjoyed a strong support among a number of minority communities (possibly since they provide a way out of the failed inner-city schools). Therefore, if Ms. Warren has more kinship with the poor than with the education bureaucracy, she might want to reconsider her blind support of the Department of Education as the Democrats have imagined it.

  1. Former Harry Reid Staffer Jabs Buttigieg: ‘Sneaky Pete’ Only Got 8,500 Votes in His Last Election

Breitbart went to a Harry Reid staffer who observed that Buttigieg only got 8,500 votes in his last election. This could be a problem during an election where Democrats have hemorrhaged voters.

Democrats continue ripping Mayor Pete Buttigieg for only earning 8,500 votes in his last campaign for re-election as the Mayor of South Bend, Indiana — which has a population of roughly 100,000 people.

Former Deputy Chief of Staff to Sen. Harry Reid Adam Jentleson mocked Buttigieg on Friday after the mayor released a new ad against giving tuition-free college education for children of wealthy parents.

“A guy who received a total of 8,500 votes in his last election now wants to be POTUS because he believes in his own ambition above all else,” he wrote on Twitter.


Jentleson called Buttigieg “Sneaky Pete” for throwing ideas embraced by Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders “under the bus” for a position that was more “consultant-tested.”

The attack against Buttigieg’s weak voter draw was also deployed by Democratic strategic Alexis Grenell in April as proof that sexism was “alive and well in 2020.”

Buttigieg frequently cites his election in a midwestern city within the red state of Indiana as proof he can appeal to all voters.

But South Bend is overwhelmingly Democrat, thus explaining the low voting numbers. The last time the city elected a Republican mayor was in 1964.

Buttigieg not only cannot connect with current Black Democrats and lost his share of voters in successive elections, he was (as shown from the above article) elected by a small group

  1. College students Fainting From Starvation in Venezuela’s Failing College System

Socialism’s reality does not work well

The Union Journal notes how Venezuelan college students have been fainting from hunger as they study in the college system.

Tons of of kids filed into their college courtyard to listen to a neighborhood Catholic bishop lead prayers for his or her schooling.

“We pray for the youths who’re on the streets and may’t come to highschool,” mentioned Bishop Jorge Quintero, addressing the Augusto D’Aubeterre Lyceum college within the seaside city of Boca de Uchire on a steamy morning in October. “There are a number of them.”

By the tip of the 15-minute ceremony, 5 youngsters had fainted and two of them have been whisked away in an ambulance.

The faintings on the major college have turn into a daily prevalence as a result of so many college students come to class with out consuming breakfast, or dinner the evening earlier than. In different faculties, youngsters wish to know if there’s any meals earlier than they resolve whether or not to go in any respect.

“You possibly can’t educate skeletal and hungry folks,” mentioned Maira Marín, a trainer and union chief in Boca de Uchire.

Venezuela’s devastating six-year financial disaster is hollowing out the varsity system — as soon as the satisfaction of the oil-rich nation and, for many years, an engine that made the nation one of the upwardly cell within the area. These faculties prior to now supplied youngsters even in distant areas with a strong shot on the nation’s greatest universities, which in flip opened doorways to high American faculties and a spot amongst Venezuela’s elite.

Starvation is simply one of many many issues chipping away at them now. Thousands and thousands of Venezuelans have fled the nation in recent times, depleting the ranks of scholars and academics alike. Most of the educators who stay have been pushed from the career, their wages made practically nugatory by years of relentless hyperinflation. In some locations, barely 100 college students present up at faculties that after taught 1000’s.

The collapse of the schooling system in Venezuela is just not solely condemning a whole technology to poverty, however dangers setting the nation’s improvement again many years and severely stunting its development potential, specialists and academics say.

“A complete technology is being left behind,” mentioned Luis Bravo, an schooling researcher on the Central College of Venezuela in Caracas. “In the present day’s schooling system doesn’t permit youngsters to turn into significant members of society.”

The federal government stopped publishing schooling statistics in 2014. However visits to greater than a dozen faculties in 5 Venezuelan states and interviews with dozens of academics and oldsters point out that attendance has plummeted this yr.

Since AOC has spent all of her tenure in Congress trying to make socialism sexy, this starvation stuff throws a wrench in those works

Of course, there have been numerous, changing stories from AOC. First, she told us that socialism was the way to go. Then she told us we would all die if we did not get a handle on climate change. Next, she mocked those who had believed her climate change lies by saying that she had been joking. Following that, her chief-of-staff revealed that the Green New Deal was nothing but a pathway to socialism.

  1. Illegal Alien Returns to U.S. After Killing Four American Kids in 2008

Breitbart relates the account of an illegal alien who killed four American children, was deported, and has now returned.

An illegal alien woman returned to the United States soon after being deported for killing four American children in a 2008 school bus crash in Cottonwood, Minnesota.

Olga Marina Franco del Cid, a 35-year-old illegal alien from Guatemala, was found guilty for 24 charges including four counts of criminal vehicular homicide after she ran a stop sign on February 18, 2008 and killed 13-year-old Jesse Javens, 12-year-old Reed Stevens, nine-year-old Emilee Olson, and nine-year-old Hunter Javens.

The four children Franco del Cid killed were among 28 students on a school bus at the time, 14 others of which were injured in the crash.

In October 2008, Franco del Cid was sentenced to just 12 and a half years for the children’s deaths. By April 2016, she had served only eight years in Minnesota and was set free. Immediately on release she was turned over to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency and deported from the U.S. in May 2016.

Sometime between late 2016 and 2019, ICE officials said Franco del Cid returned to the U.S. and was living less than three hours away from where she had left those four children dead in 2008.

This week, Franco del Cid was arrested by ICE in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. The illegal alien may face between 10 to 20 years in prison for illegally re-entering the U.S.

After reading this, remember that Pelosi called them her “spark of divinity”

Even though Nancy Pelosi has never seen a problem she did not want to exploit, she has built an oddly-hypocritical stance on illegal aliens. First, she denies any crisis exists at the border (even though thousands of illegals massed on the border). Then (as if to deflect criticism centering on the killing of a pro-life bill), she labels people who enter the country illegally as “sparks of divinity” who are worthy of protection.

  1. Elizabeth Warren Announces Three Major Freshman Democrats as Co-Campaign Chairs

Breitbart reported in a 23 November 2019 article how Liz Warren has sought out the inexperienced, socialist representatives as support.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) added three significant freshman Democrats — Reps. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Katie Porter (D-CA), and Deb Haaland (D-NM) — as co-chairs of her campaign, she announced on Friday.

While the majority of the ultra-leftist “Squad” endorsed Warren’s fellow contender and ideological similar Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Warren landed an endorsement from Pressley, who hails from her home state, and secured the backing of freshman Democrats Porter and Haaland.

“It’s my honor to have @Deb4CongressNM, @KatiePorterOC, and @AyannaPressley as my Campaign Co-Chairs. Big structural change can’t wait, and we’ll fight for it—together.” Warren announced on Twitter:

Haaland, one of two Native American women in Congress, faced backlash for endorsing Warren, given the presidential hopeful’s past of falsely claiming Native American heritage.

  1. Follow the money from rich Chinese to Democrats to see how this bill came to be

House Passes Bill Opening Backdoor Immigration Route for Wealthy Chinese

Breitbart reports in a 6 December 2019 article on a follow-the-money issue for Democrats.

The House quietly passed a bill on December 3 to crack open a backdoor route for wealthy Chinese to buy their way into U.S. citizenship by lending money to the U.S. real estate industry.

Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) portrayed the bill as a boost to trade between the United States and Portugal. But the bill allows wealthy Chinese to get into the United States after first buying Portuguese citizenship.

“Congress is getting duped. … [The bill is] creating a new path for Chinese people,” said one Capitol Hill source.

Wealthy Chinese can buy “golden visa” citizenship from Portugal’s government in as little as 35 days. If House bill H.R. 565 is approved by the Senate and becomes law, then the new Chinese citizens of Portugal will be able to move into the U.S. by getting E-1 Treaty Trader or E-2 Treaty Investor renewable visas.

Cicilline’s office declined to comment to Breitbart News.

The bill may have a lot of hidden support in the Senate because it could provide a band-aid fix for the backlogged EB-5 program.

The EB-5 program allows wealthy foreigners to buy green cards by lending money to U.S. businesses, mostly to real estate investors. But the money inflow has shrunk because immigration law seeks to promote diversity among immigrants by capping the annual share of EB-5 green cards that can be bought by people from each country, such as China or India. This “country cap” rule means that new Chinese EB-5 buyers must wait more than ten years to get delivery of their backlogged green cards.

  1. Illegal Alien Returns to U.S. After Killing Four American Kids in 2008

Breitbart relates the account of an illegal alien who killed four American children, was deported, and has now returned.

An illegal alien woman returned to the United States soon after being deported for killing four American children in a 2008 school bus crash in Cottonwood, Minnesota.

Olga Marina Franco del Cid, a 35-year-old illegal alien from Guatemala, was found guilty for 24 charges including four counts of criminal vehicular homicide after she ran a stop sign on February 18, 2008 and killed 13-year-old Jesse Javens, 12-year-old Reed Stevens, nine-year-old Emilee Olson, and nine-year-old Hunter Javens.

The four children Franco del Cid killed were among 28 students on a school bus at the time, 14 others of which were injured in the crash.

In October 2008, Franco del Cid was sentenced to just 12 and a half years for the children’s deaths. By April 2016, she had served only eight years in Minnesota and was set free. Immediately on release she was turned over to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency and deported from the U.S. in May 2016.

After reading this, remember that Pelosi called them her “spark of divinity”

Even though Nancy Pelosi has never seen a problem she did not want to exploit, she has built an oddly-hypocritical stance on illegal aliens. First, she denies any crisis exists at the border (even though thousands of illegals massed on the border). Then (as if to deflect criticism centering on the killing of a pro-life bill), she labels people who enter the country illegally as “sparks of divinity” who are worthy of protection.

Breitbart reported in a 23 November 2019 article how Liz Warren has sought out the inexperienced, socialist representatives as support.

  1. Follow the money from rich Chinese to Democrats to see how this bill came to be

House Passes Bill Opening Backdoor Immigration Route for Wealthy Chinese

Breitbart reports in a 6 December 2019 article on a follow-the-money issue for Democrats.

The House quietly passed a bill on December 3 to crack open a backdoor route for wealthy Chinese to buy their way into U.S. citizenship by lending money to the U.S. real estate industry.

Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) portrayed the bill as a boost to trade between the United States and Portugal. But the bill allows wealthy Chinese to get into the United States after first buying Portuguese citizenship.

“Congress is getting duped. … [The bill is] creating a new path for Chinese people,” said one Capitol Hill source.

Wealthy Chinese can buy “golden visa” citizenship from Portugal’s government in as little as 35 days. If House bill H.R. 565 is approved by the Senate and becomes law, then the new Chinese citizens of Portugal will be able to move into the U.S. by getting E-1 Treaty Trader or E-2 Treaty Investor renewable visas.

Cicilline’s office declined to comment to Breitbart News.

The bill may have a lot of hidden support in the Senate because it could provide a band-aid fix for the backlogged EB-5 program.

The EB-5 program allows wealthy foreigners to buy green cards by lending money to U.S. businesses, mostly to real estate investors. But the money inflow has shrunk because immigration law seeks to promote diversity among immigrants by capping the annual share of EB-5 green cards that can be bought by people from each country, such as China or India. This “country cap” rule means that new Chinese EB-5 buyers must wait more than ten years to get delivery of their backlogged green cards.
