Welcome to America’s Cultural Revolution

We’re in the dawn of a high-tech, bloodless cultural revolution, one that relies on intimidation, public shaming, and economic ruin to dictate what words and ideas are permissible in the public square.

“Words are violence” has always been an illiberal notion meant to stifle speech and open discourse. Popularized by a generation of coddled and brittle college students, it now guides policy on editorial pages at newspapers such as The Philadelphia Inquirer, The New York Times, and most major news outlets.

The Times can claim that a harsh tone and a small factual error in Sen. Tom Cotton’s recent op-ed was the reason the entire paper had a meltdown, but the staffers who revolted initially claimed that Cotton’s argument for bringing the National Guard into cities put black lives in “danger.”

None of the Times’ editors, all of whom are apparently comfortable with running fabulist histories or odes to communist tyrannies, pushed back against the caustic notion that engaging in debate was an act of violence. They bowed to the internal mob and pleaded for forgiveness.  Taken in part from a  Commentary  by David Harsanyi—The Daily Signal

Intelligence Missed intel on Coronavirus

White House: Intelligence agencies missed early signs of coronavirus pandemic
June 9, 2020
U.S. intelligence agencies missed reporting on the seriousness of the coronavirus outbreak in late January that would soon lead to a deadly global pandemic, according to White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien.

These guys think they are the smartest guys in the room.  They never see anything until after the fact.  Same guys who just knew Donald Trump was dirty. Just part of the ruling class that have their own agenda.      Posted by Bill Gertz

The Democratic Party Hates Science

I thought I would share excerpts from an article from World Net Daily.  It speaks volumes to what we are going through at the present time.  The all encompassing dictatorial mandates that have no truth and are at best comical and at worst flat out lies.  Follow the money and the power structure.

“Today’s Democratic Party insists that a beautiful, full-term human baby just about to be born isn’t really a human being and therefore can be slaughtered at will – maybe even after he or she is born – just as long as “the mother and her doctor” agree.

The Democratic Party’s top leaders also passionately warn that the entire earth will become uninhabitable within 10 years due to global warming – unless, that is, America goes full totalitarian/socialist right now and adopts their Green New Deal at an estimated cost of $93 trillion. After all, it’s “settled science.”

The modern Democratic Party likewise contends there are dozens of different genders that never before existed throughout history, that men can menstruate, get pregnant and have babies, and that if you don’t agree with all this, you’re a deplorable bigot. And anti-science.

Blue-state governors, mayors and public health officials have issued sweeping dictatorial orders quarantining the young and healthy inside their homes for extended periods, allowing big-box stores to sell beer and wine but not paint and garden supplies, permitting beachgoers to walk on wet sand but not dry sand, and allowing groups of 25 to meet in a restaurant, department store or most any other venue – but not in a church. It’s science, you see; it’s all in the data.”  Yep it’s the science.

Key congressman seeks probe into why 80 percent of U.S. foreign investor visas going to China

 

House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-Penn.) have asked the an investigative arm of Congress to investigate China’s involvement in America’s EB-5 Immigrant Investor Visa Program.

In a letter Monday to the Comptroller General of the U.S. Government Accountability Office, the lawmakers said the program was meant to encourage foreign capital investment and job creation in America but it appears it is being exploited by the Chinese Communist Party.

“Although the EB-5 program’s goal of stimulating capital investment and job creation in the United States is laudable, it has become clear in recent years that the CCP may be abusing the program to gain access to U.S. permanent residency for their members,” the letter says. “Between 2012 and 2018, 80 percent of the nearly 10,000 EB-5 visas available each year went to Chinese-born investors.”

 

CNN–Agenda Driven?

Ex-anchor Soledad O’Brien says CNN executive told her to host only the ‘right kind of black person’

Soledad O’Brien tweeted Saturday that a CNN executive had expressed an opinion about a certain individual being the wrong type of black person.

“This is an interesting read. Reminds me of the cnn exec who told me: “Roland Martin isn’t the ‘right kind of’ Black person.” She didn’t want me to book him on my show,” O’Brien tweeted.

“Charles Blow, she told me, (also a frequent guest) was ‘the right kind of Black,’” O’Brien said in another tweet.

Charles Blow, she told me, (also a frequent guest) was ‘the right kind of Black’.

413 people are talking about this

New York Times columnist Charles Blow reacted to O’Brien’s assertions about the alleged comments. “I don’t know how to take this ‘good negro’ talk,” he wrote.

Roland Martin responded with his own allegations about CNN, including that he was cautioned against using the word “bruh.” Martin said he was told to “be careful saying stuff like bruh. We don’t want to scare away white viewers.”

CNN did not immediately return requests for comment from Just the News.

Texas Seizes $1 Million of Cocaine

Border Patrol agents seized nearly $1 million worth of cocaine on June 6, according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection press release. The interception occurred at the Gateway International Bridge in Brownsville, Texas.

“Our frontline CBP officers at the Port of Brownsville yet again affirmed their resolve to advance CBP’s border security mission and that commitment is reflected in this significant cocaine interception in the passenger vehicle environment,” said Port Director Tater Ortiz, Brownsville Port of Entry.

The smuggler attempted to bring the narcotics into the U.S. in their vehicle. Agents alerted to the vehicle discovered the 24 packages weighing 122 pounds. The drugs are estimated to have a $940,000 street value.

Closing of Abortion Clinics

Anytime the abortion industry complains about hard times, pro life advocates have good reasons to rejoice.  Independent abortion clinics are struggling financially and may close due to the impact of covid-19.  Hooray!

“On-the-ground access to abortion care is changing every minute,” Nikki Madsen, executive directive of the Abortion Care Network said.  “If we lose clinics, there would be 10 states that would have no care after 11 weeks of pregnancy, and 4 states that would have no care at all.

In my mind I want all abortions stopped, but even a small step is reason to rejoice.

Unborn Lives Matter

Today

I had forgotten that Rod Rosenstein was going to be grilled by the Senate today on the Russia investigation and the Mueller report. I just turned it on for about 35 seconds of useless pandering. Let me say this, don’t bother watching you’re not gonna find out anything that you don’t already know. You know the old saying birds of a feather flock together…

Who knows maybe I’ll be wrong.
Still waiting for some high-ranking Democrat to come out and denounce the violence and destruction by the mobs. No one will, and of this I am certain.
It is funny and I’m sure just a coincidence that Biden, Clinton and the Dem leadership started wearing black mask last week before the riots started.
Why does New York arrest anyone if they turn them loose within a couple of hours.  Getting them back to the brick piles I guess.
